How to Sleep Better After PDO Threads

As you become older, your skin thins and loses elasticity. As a result, wrinkles appear and the skin begins to droop. A PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive anti-aging procedure that tightens and lifts the skin fast. To achieve the greatest results from a PDO thread lift, there are a few things you should avoid such as sleeping in certain positions.

So how exactly should you be sleeping after a PDO thread lift? You should avoid putting any type of pressure on your face or the target area of the thread lift. Sleeping on your back is the best way to sleep to promote better healing and blood flow.

How to Sleep After Your PDO Thread Lift Procedure

Can You Sleep On Your Face?

One of the most common blunders is applying too much pressure to the treated region after a thread lift. If you sleep on your stomach or on your side for the first 5 nights following the surgery, you may have inflammation, bruising, pain, or less-than-ideal outcomes after the procedure.

What Positions To Sleep In

To avoid tugging the threads that cause discomfort, sleep on your back for a week following surgery. Try laying on your back for a few weeks before your treatment if you typically sleep on your side or belly to get accustomed to the feeling.

Another method is to sleep in an elevated posture on your back. Elevating your head improves blood circulation and accelerates the recovery phase. If you're still tossing and turning after settling into a comfortable back position, sleep on a chair to avoid laying on your stomach or side.

For the first week, side sleeping and stomach sleeping are prohibited, and if you can sleep on your back for 2 weeks, the healing period can be completed faster. Putting pressure on the threads can cause bruising and swelling.

Sleeping on your side or stomach will alter the final outcome of the procedure, and the results of your facelift may be significantly less than you expected. During the first week after surgery, you should sleep with your head raised on soft, supporting pillows as this will aid in the reduction of edema and discomfort.

Steady blood flow and blood pressure allow for better collagen production that can assist in shortening the recovery time. To be able to sleep through the night, your cosmetic surgeon should prescribe painkillers, which you should take as directed and at regular intervals.

How Long Should You Sleep On Your Back?

You should continue to keep pressure off your face for4 to 5 weeks. Other advantages of sleeping on your back in a slightly raised position include assisting with sleep apnea and snoring. The recovery phase will be a breeze once you get used to sleeping in this posture since you'll be able to sleep deeply as you recuperate.

Other suggestions for getting a good night's sleep after surgery include avoiding caffeine and dark tea, but herbal teas can be relaxing and comforting while keeping your room cold and dark to promote sleep.

How Should You Take Care of Your Face After a PDO Thread Lift?

Thread lifts are a low-risk cosmetic procedure that requires only little downtime. In one to two weeks, you should be able to return to your regular activities. The following suggestions can help your body recover faster and keep your skin together longer:

1. Take pain relievers you've been prescribed

Unlike facelift surgery, which is performed under general anesthesia, thread lift surgery is performed under local anesthetic, which means the numbness is temporary. Your surgeon will prescribe analgesics to aid with the pain and discomfort. Follow the directions on your prescription carefully.

2. Get some rest

You'll need to relax for a few hours after any surgical operation. It's plenty for the first 24-48 hours. Avoid putting excessive pressure on the procedure region. After a thread lift surgery, don't touch your face for 24 hours.

Sleeping on your back is also suggested, as it keeps your facial skin taut, which is a natural anti-aging technique. Be sure to avoid any physical activity or vigorous exercises and sexual activity.

3. Moisturize

Thread lifts are used to temporarily enhance your appearance. Even while they boost collagen creation for a year or more, basic skincare is still required for long-term attractiveness.

Moisturizing your skin is one of the most effective methods to keep it looking young and healthy. To keep your skin moisturized, use high-quality moisturizers and drink plenty of water.

4. Eat Well

A thread lift is not a long-lasting cosmetic surgery. A healthy diet is crucial to your body's healing process as certain foods can affect your body’s healing process. It would be best to stick to light meals instead of hearty ones and eat foods that are skin-friendly like fruits and vegetables.

5. Taking regular screen breaks

Prevent yourself from quicker aging whether you have had a small face thread lift or a thorough face and neck thread lift. Take frequent pauses from your laptop, computer, smartphone, or any other gadget that may cause jowls and wrinkles.

6. Cleansing

Don’t participate in any strenuous activity after a thread lift that might cause the sutures to loosen. As for cleansing, it’s highly recommended that you do it gently to prevent any complications.
