Welcome to the world of advanced skin rejuvenation, where the quest for a youthful, radiant complexion leads us to two remarkable treatments: PDO Thread Lift and PDO Smooth Threads. At Blessed Beauty, we understand that navigating different aesthetic options can be overwhelming.
Keep reading to learn more about the differences between these two innovative procedures, helping you make an informed decision about which treatment aligns best with your skin rejuvenation goals.
Understanding PDO Threads
A PDO Thread procedure uses tiny needles to insert fine, absorbable threads into the subcutaneous layer of the skin. PDO, short for Polydioxanone, is a biodegradable, absorbable material designed to stimulate collagen production and elastin and provide support to combat signs of aging.
Over time, these threads will dissolve, but the collagen and elastin they stimulate remain, promoting and maintaining a more rejuvenating, youthful appearance.
Benefits of PDO Threads
PDO Thread Lift comes with different benefits, such as:
- Natural-looking results
- Promotes collagen production
- Minimally-invasive with minimal downtime
- Long-lasting results (up to 12 months or more!)
Lifting Threads vs. Smooth Threads: What’s the Difference?
PDO Lifting Threads
Lifting threads are specialized threads with either barbs or cones designed to reposition the skin above them. These threads are inserted into the subcutaneous layer (fat) and then pulled, causing a subtle lift in the fatty layer and the skin.
Barbed threads primarily aim to lift, but they also stimulate the body to produce new collagen.
PDO Lifting Threads are known for the following benefits:
- Lifts and tightens mild to moderate sagging skin
- Provides an immediate lifting effect
- Provides Instant results that improve over time
- Reduces the appearance of nasolabial folds, marionette lines, and smile lines
PDO Smooth Threads
PDO Smooth Threads, on the other hand, take a slightly different approach. Although they share the same polydioxanone material, these threads are smooth instead of barbed.
They are placed under the skin to stimulate collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid production, resulting in firmer, smoother, more hydrated skin.
PDO smooth threads are mainly employed to strengthen saggy skin rather than lift it, making them an ideal choice for individuals seeking to enhance skin quality, tone, and texture.
PDO Smooth Threads are known for the following benefits:
- Provide more facial contouring
- Delivers more plumpness to skin
- Enhances sagging skin
- Diminish visible scars
- Can target specific areas, including brow, jawline, and (or) neck
What to Expect During Treatment
Both a PDO Thread Lift and PDO Smooth Threads are performed in a clinical setting and typically take about an hour. The process involves local anesthesia to minimize discomfort.
While the PDO Thread Lift focuses on strategic areas for lifting, PDO Smooth Threads may be used more broadly for overall skin enhancement.
Aftercare and Recovery
Post-treatment, you may experience mild swelling and bruising, which typically subsides within a few days.
It’s essential to follow the aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner, including avoiding strenuous activities and direct sun exposure for a short period.
Why Choose PDO Treatments?
Whether you opt for a PDO Thread Lift or PDO Smooth Threads, both treatments offer a way to turn back the clock on aging without surgery. They are highly effective and safe while providing results that enhance your natural beauty.
