PDO Threads and Soft Threads are cosmetic procedures or treatments used for wrinkles, fine lines, and skin aging. There are countless rising treatments and procedures, so you might be confused about which procedure is best for you.
The PDO Thread Lift is a good choice and is a minimally invasive procedure compared to surgical measures. PDO Thread Lifts and Soft Thread Lifts will help you eliminate wrinkles, fine lines, and improve sagging skin. The lifting effect can last up to about 1-2 years.
Although both of these procedures target wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin, they are targeted for different treatment areas. The PDO Thread Lift targets the cheeks, jowls, neck, and areas around the eyes, while the Soft Thread Lift targets the midface, lips, neck, above the eyes and jawline.
The PDO Thread Lift is advisable for candidates who have moderate to advanced skin laxity, while the Soft Thread Lift is advisable for candidates who have mild to moderate skin laxity. If you have more aged skin that tends to be looser, a PDO Thread Lift is recommended. A Soft Thread Lift is perfect for those patients who are in their early to mid-adulthood. The type of threads used, however, depends on the collagen production of the patient’s skin, skin condition, and overall health of the patient.
PDO Threads and Soft Threads are non-surgical and minimally invasive. There are no incisions used with a scalpel, and no scars are visible. A medical-grade thread is inserted into the target area in both procedures, the thread lifts the skin, encourages collagen renewal, and helps the target area become plumper and younger-looking. After about six months, the body absorbs the medical-grade thread used in a natural hydrolysis process.
PDO and Soft Thread Lifts are safe, generally painless, and you can leave the clinic on the same day. Recovery from swelling can be a few days, and both Thread Lifts result in as early as a few weeks to 2 months. Thread Lifts can take about three to six months for collagen and elastin to remodel and lift your face.
Safety and Side Effects
PDO Threads have a lower risk of complications than traditional facelift surgeries. When Thread Lifts are performed by a trained professional, there is a low risk of scarring, bleeding, or severe bruising. Sometimes puckering can occur, which can be fixed. These minor complications may occur, but usually correct themselves in a few days, sometimes with applying heat or massaging. Thread Lifting is a great minimal downtime procedure and also compliments fillers and Botox injections.
