Once you see the pic of Eva Mendes linked below, you’ll be glad I didn’t use it for the main one in this post, especially if you’re needle-averse. The terrifying picture is after the cut. You’ve been WARNED! People tells us that Eva has been subjecting herself to a rather unusual, youth-enhancing beauty treatment since we all want to turn back time (especially to any year before the hellscape that is 2020).
Fans were curious to know what the actress was getting done to her jawline after she posted a graphic photo on Instagram with her head leaned back and what appeared to be seven needles injected into her chin. “Omg what is that ?? I’m interested [in] details,” one person wrote.
Mendes explained in the caption that she was “getting some mono-threads” and would “update you with results if you care.”
And here’s the pic of Eva Mendes with Hellraiser neck. It’s a whole lot of NOPE:
The procedure itself sounds like a cold needle gangbang taking place where a comforting and warm pearl necklace should be. What? Your brain totally went there, too. People continues:
On Beauty Villa Vergara’s Instagram page, the newly-opened Beverly Hills membership-only medispa shared some details about the painful-looking treatment that Mendes received. “Mono-threads activate collagen synthesis which produces a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect,” they said.
Dermatologist Dr. Marina Vergara, who gave Mendes the treatment at Beauty Villa Vergara tells PEOPLE that the mono-threads are made from a “fine absorbable polydioxanone” material and are “inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern to achieve maximum tightening effects.”
I guess now we wait for Eva’s updates and feedback on her youth-restoration project. If she makes it back to 2006, I’m totally signing up for this jab-fest and stopping myself from lending my deadbeat sibling any money.
