PDO Thread Lift

What is a PDO thread lift?

The Polydioxanone (PDO) is a safe material that is used in heart surgeries. PDO thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that helps tighten the skin in problematic areas like at the chin and jawline. The procedure can be used for all the areas of the body. People who are interested in the procedure have to go for an examination session to ensure that you do not have any reaction to the PDO treatment.

There are two main PDO thread lift procedures. The first one is using the Nova Mesh which acts as a foundation under the skin. The mesh stimulates collagen production which makes the skin look plumper and youthful. The new collagen produced is responsible for the fading of wrinkles and fine lines over time. The second procedure is Nova Lyft which involves inserting threads under the skin of the sagging tissue. The threads are pulled to the desired direction to lift the sagging tissue. The PDO stimulates collagen production, and later they are absorbed into the skin.

Who is suitable for a PDO thread lift?

The PDO thread lift is suitable for people with sagging skin. It is for both men and women who want to reverse the signs of aging. The procedure takes a long time, so you need to schedule an appointment and make time for the procedure. The results may take a few weeks to be fully visible.

Derma Filler

What is dermal filler?

An injectable dermal filler is an injectable liquid substance that is used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It is used to fill in the sagging areas to make them look plumper. A patient has to undergo tests to ensure that they do not react to the filler. The dermal filler is suitable for contouring the face. It can be injected into cheek to create the appearance of cheekbones. It can also be injected into lips to make them fuller. The most common use of dermal filler is reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They are injected to fill the space under the skin where the wrinkles appear. The procedure can take up to 30 minutes, and you can go back to your daily activities immediately.

Who is suitable for dermal filler?

Dermal fillers are suitable for both men and women who want instant results. The results of the procedure are immediately visible. The procedure takes a short while, and the filler needs no downtime to settle.

Which is better?

Dermal fillers or PDO thread lift?

The choice between PDO thread lift and dermal filler depends on the patients and the condition of the skin. There are areas like the neck and jawline where dermal fillers are unsuitable, but PDO thread lift is the perfect solution for the sagging skin. The results of dermal filler are visible immediately while those of a PDO thread lift is fully visible when the body starts generating collagen. The results of dermal fillers can last between 6 to nine months while those of a PDO thread lift can last between 12 to 18 months.
