Eva Mendes presents her latest beauty treatment.
The 46-year-old star took to Instagram on Thursday to congratulate a friend on opening his own beauty center.
In the post, the actress shared a somewhat graphic image of herself lying down with seven needles with threads tied and glued under her chin. The needles and threads were visible through her skin, from her chin to the base of her neck.
In legend, Mendes called the “incredible” beauty treatment center a “home-away-from-home spa”.

“This home-away-from-home spa is amazing! No office with poor fluorescent lighting. No sterile office atmosphere. It is my destination for all things beauty, ”she continued. “A house where you can relax while being tortured by the best of the best. This is my happy place! “
The star explained that in the photo, she is receiving a mono-thread treatment, which activates “the synthesis of collagen which produces progressive thickening of the skin, firming and rejuvenation of the skin,” according to the spa’s Instagram.
“Ayyyy Dios! Mendes added in the caption. “I’ll update you with the results if you care. I’m so excited to support her as a skilled beauty technician opening her own Latina owned business! ”
The “Hitch” star concluded her legend with “Pa’lante reina!” The exclamation roughly translates to “queen before” via Google Translate.

Dr. Marina Vergara, the dermatologist behind the operation, spoke to People magazine about the single-strand treatment, in which “thin strands of absorbable polydioxanone” are “inserted into the skin according to a mesh pattern for maximum tightening effects ”.
Despite Mendes’ comedic legend, the treatment was not very painful, the doctor explained.
“The procedure is minimally invasive and patients generally have mild discomfort,” she explained. “I use numbing cream before placing them. “
Generally, the treatment is used to keep skin looking young and prevent sagging.
“It provides immediate results, but even better results are seen after three months because your body is producing collagen,” Vergara said. “These threads will start to dissolve within six to nine months, but due to the stimulation of collagen and elastin, the effect will last for up to eighteen months. ”

“They can go in the cheeks, nasolabial folds, jaw, puppet lines, neckline, arms, thighs, knees or abdomen,” the doctor said. “Basically, wherever collagen stimulation is expected.
