As we age, our skin begins to show signs of age, such as wrinkles and sagging skin. To combat these signs of aging, many people are turning to the combination of PDO threads and dermal fillers. PDO threads are a minimally invasive technique that lifts and tightens the skin, while dermal fillers plump up areas of the face that have lost volume over time. Together, this combination helps to reduce wrinkles, improve skin texture, and create a more youthful look.
Reger Vein and Skin Specialist led by Dr. Gregg Reger provides PDO threads and dermal fillers to his patients in The Woodlands, Spring and Houston TX.
What is PDO Thread-Lift?
PDO thread-lift is a revolutionary minimally invasive technique used to lift and tighten the skin. PDO, which stands for Polydioxanone, is a biodegradable material that is commonly used in medical sutures. The threads are inserted into the skin using a fine needle, and once in place, they stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining skin elasticity and firmness.
PDO thread-lift is a popular choice for individuals looking for a non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift. It can be used to treat various areas of the face, including the forehead, eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, and neck. The procedure is quick, relatively painless, and requires minimal downtime.
One of the advantages of PDO thread-lift is its long-lasting results. As the threads gradually dissolve, the collagen and elastin continue to be produced, providing ongoing skin rejuvenation effects. The treatment is also customizable, as different types of threads can be used depending on the desired lifting and tightening effect.
Overall, PDO thread-lift is an excellent option for those looking to combat signs of aging without undergoing surgery.
What are Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are another popular option for individuals seeking to reverse the signs of aging. They are injectable substances that restore volume to areas of the face that have lost fullness over time. Dermal fillers work by filling in wrinkles, fine lines, and deep creases, as well as plumping up areas such as the lips and cheeks for a more youthful appearance.
There are several types of dermal fillers available, including hyaluronic acid fillers, collagen-stimulating fillers, and synthetic fillers. Hyaluronic acid fillers, which are the most commonly used, work by attracting and retaining water in the skin, giving it a plump and hydrated look. Collagen-stimulating fillers, on the other hand, stimulate the production of collagen in the skin, which helps improve skin elasticity and firmness.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical and minimally invasive treatment that provides immediate results with minimal downtime. The effects of dermal fillers can last anywhere from several months to over a year, depending on the type of filler used and the individual’s metabolism. Overall, dermal fillers are an excellent complement to PDO thread-lift, as they enhance the overall rejuvenation of the face, restoring volume and reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
The Benefits of Combining PDO Thread-Lift with Dermal Fillers
Combining PDO thread-lift with dermal fillers offers several key benefits for those seeking to combat signs of aging. First and foremost, the combination approach provides a comprehensive solution that targets multiple concerns simultaneously. While PDO thread-lift lifts and tightens the skin, dermal fillers restore volume and plump up areas that have lost fullness over time. This means that wrinkles, sagging skin, and loss of facial contours can all be addressed in a single treatment.
Additionally, the combination of PDO thread-lift and dermal fillers can provide longer-lasting results. As the PDO threads gradually dissolve, the production of collagen and elastin is stimulated, leading to ongoing skin rejuvenation effects. The effects of dermal fillers can also last for several months to over a year, depending on the type used.
Furthermore, the customizable nature of this combination approach allows for tailored treatment based on individual needs and desired outcomes. Different types of PDO threads and dermal fillers can be utilized to achieve the specific lifting, tightening, and volumizing effects desired.
Overall, combining PDO thread-lift with dermal fillers provides a powerful anti-aging solution that addresses multiple concerns, delivers long-lasting results, and can be tailored to meet individual needs.
The Procedure Process
The combination of PDO thread-lift and dermal fillers is a powerful anti-aging solution that can help you achieve a more youthful appearance. But what does the procedure process look like?
First, your skincare professional will evaluate your specific needs and goals to determine the best approach. They will discuss the areas you want to target and assess the condition of your skin.
The procedure itself is minimally invasive and usually done in-office. A topical or local anesthetic may be applied to minimize any discomfort. For PDO thread-lift, fine needles are used to insert the threads into the skin. The threads are strategically placed to lift and tighten the skin.
Once the threads are in place, your skincare professional will use dermal fillers to restore volume and plump up areas of the face that have lost fullness. The fillers are injected into specific areas, such as the cheeks or lips, to enhance the overall rejuvenation.
The entire procedure usually takes around 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. After the treatment, you may experience some mild swelling, redness, or bruising, but these effects are typically temporary and subside within a few days.
It’s important to follow any post-procedure instructions given by your skincare professional, such as avoiding excessive sun exposure and refraining from strenuous activities for a few days.
Overall, the procedure process for combining PDO thread-lift with dermal fillers is relatively quick, minimally invasive, and provides long-lasting results. With proper care and maintenance, you can enjoy a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
