To prevent complications and achieve the intended results, surgical procedures like rhinoplasties typically call for meticulous post-operative care.
In comparison, a nose thread lift is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure used to enhance the nose’s shape and contour. Long cuts and incisions are not necessary, and significant issues are also less likely to occur. This procedure is typically preferred because it offers minimal downtime and immediate results.
However, that is not to say that there is absolutely nothing to take note of after undergoing a nose thread lift. Here is your helpful guide to nose thread lift recovery and aftercare tips you must know!
1. Avoid applying makeup for at least 3 hours
After receiving a nose thread lift, you should wait at least 3 hours before using cosmetics products on your face. This is due to a couple of reasons, including the following:
- Skin sensitivity: The first few hours following the procedure, your skin will be extremely sensitive. Cosmetic products may irritate your skin and cause further discomfort.
- Preventing infection: At the end of the nose thread lift procedure, there will be little wounds at the tip of the nose, which are the entry locations for the threads. These open wounds are susceptible to infection. Wearing makeup, especially if you are applying products directly to the area, will increase the risk of infection.
- Pressure: Excessive pressure while applying or removing makeup can reposition the nasal threads, preventing the desired outcomes.
2. Avoid strenuous activities
Strenuous activities like running, cycling, and weightlifting will raise one’s blood pressure and heart rate. This may result in unnecessary bruising, swelling, wound separation and even infection. Thus, it is recommended to refrain from vigorous exercises until the wounds from your thread lifts have fully healed. However, light exercises like walking and gentle stretching are generally allowed, unless otherwise specified by your doctor.
3. Avoid excessive heat exposure
Unexpectedly, excessive heat exposure also causes blood pressure to increase. After getting your nose thread lift done, you should avoid the sun, steam rooms, dry saunas, hot showers, and any other heat-related activities.
Keep your body from overheating and regulate your blood pressure. For instance, being hydrated aids in keeping your body cool. Applying sunscreen diligently will also help protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
4. Avoid alcohol for at least 2 weeks
Alcohol should be avoided for at least 14 days following a nose thread lift since it has a diuretic impact on the body, increasing the amount of urine produced, which causes excess water and nutrients that are necessary for skin healing to be expelled from the body.
The bottom line
A nose thread lift is a simple, non-surgical way to enhance how your nose looks with nearly no downtime and a generally speedy recovery. But in order to achieve the best results, certain things should be avoided. Besides the points we have mentioned above, the expertise of the doctor you choose is also incredibly important. An excellent doctor will be able to provide you with a safe and comfortable nose thread lift procedure and helpful aftercare tips.

In order to enhance the nose, PDO (polydioxanone) threads are injected beneath the skin. These threads can be absorbed by the body’s lymphatic system and are completely biocompatible. As the threads finally break down, they will promote the growth of tissue fibroblasts and collagen, which enhances and supports the form of the nose by raising the tip and bridge of the nose.
