Eva Mendes recently shared a graphic snap on social media of her undergoing a skin-tightening procedure.

The actress posted a selfie of her with seven painful-looking needles placed under the skin of her jawline on Instagram and explained to her followers that she was getting her face and neck mono-threaded by dermatologist Dr Marina Vergara.

"Oye! @marianalvergara has finally opened her own @beautyvillavergara! This spa-home away from home is incredible!" the 46-year-old wrote. "No office with bad fluorescent lighting. No sterile office vibe. This is my go to for all things beauty. A home where you can relax while being tortured by the best of the best."

The Hitch star heaped praise on Marina, the owner of the new membership-only spa Beauty Villa Vergara, and called it her "happy place".

"I’ll update you with results if you care," Eva wrote. "So excited to support her as a skilled beauty technician opening her own Latina owned business!"

Representatives for Beauty Villa Vergara shared more details of the unusual beauty treatment on their Instagram page and explained that mono-threads "activate collagen synthesis which produces a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect".

Marina told People that the mono-threads, which provide immediate results, are made from a "fine absorbable polydioxanone" material and are "inserted into the skin in a mesh-like pattern to achieve maximum tightening effects".
