Dermal fillers and PDO threads are a powerful combination when it comes to facial rejuvenation. By combining these two treatments, patients can achieve natural-looking, long-lasting results without having to undergo surgery. Dermal fillers fill in lines and wrinkles, while PDO threads provide an extra level of support to lift and contour the face, giving it a more youthful appearance. In this blog post, we’ll explore the benefits of using both dermal fillers and PDO threads for facial rejuvenation. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bryson Richards provides PDO threads and Dermal Fillers to patients in Las Vegas, NV, and surrounding locations.
What are PDO threads?
PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment used to lift and tighten sagging skin. They are thin, dissolvable threads made of the same material used in surgical sutures and are inserted under the skin through a small needle. Once inserted, they act as a scaffolding structure for the skin, stimulating collagen production and providing support to lift and tighten the skin.
PDO threads are a popular non-surgical facelift option for those looking to rejuvenate their appearance without the downtime or risks associated with surgery. They can be used to target specific areas of the face and neck, including the cheeks, jowls, and neck. PDO threads are offered by many medical spas and are considered a safe and effective treatment.
If you are considering PDO threads, it is important to choose a trained and experienced medical professional to perform the procedure. During your consultation, your provider will assess your skin and discuss your goals to determine if PDO threads are right for you.
Overall, PDO threads are an excellent option for those looking to address sagging skin without surgery. They offer a minimally invasive solution with little to no downtime and can provide long-lasting results when combined with other treatments, such as dermal fillers.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment used to restore volume, reduce wrinkles, and rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. They are a popular treatment at medical spas and cosmetic clinics around the world.
As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which can lead to sagging, hollowing, and wrinkling. Dermal fillers can be used to address these signs of aging by adding volume to the face, lips, and hands.
The filler is injected under the skin using a very fine needle. The treatment is relatively painless and requires no downtime, making it a popular alternative to a surgical facelift.
There are different types of dermal fillers available, including hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers, calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) fillers, and poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) fillers. Each type of filler has its unique properties and benefits, and your medical provider can help you choose the right one for your needs.
Overall, dermal fillers can provide a natural-looking and long-lasting improvement in your skin’s appearance, helping you to look and feel your best.
The benefits of combining PDO threads and dermal fillers
Combining PDO threads and dermal fillers is a powerful duo for facial rejuvenation. Here are some of the benefits:
- Longer lasting results: PDO threads are used to lift and tighten sagging skin, while dermal fillers are used to restore lost volume. Combining both treatments can help to create a more natural-looking, longer-lasting result.
- Increased collagen production: PDO threads stimulate collagen production, which helps to improve skin texture and firmness. By adding dermal fillers to the mix, you can further enhance collagen production and overall skin health.
- Non-surgical facelift: PDO threads and dermal fillers are both minimally invasive treatments that can help to lift and sculpt the face without the need for surgery. This makes them an excellent choice for those who want to avoid the downtime and risks associated with surgery.
- Customizable treatment: Each person’s face is unique, which is why combining PDO threads and dermal fillers allows for a customizable treatment plan that can be tailored to meet each patient’s specific needs.
At our medical spa, we specialize in combining these two treatments to help our clients achieve their desired results. We work closely with each patient to create a customized treatment plan that takes into account their individual needs and goals.
In terms of how long the results last, this can vary from person to person depending on factors such as age, lifestyle, and genetics. Generally speaking, the results of PDO threads can last anywhere from 6-12 months, while dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6-18 months. By combining both treatments, however, you can enjoy longer-lasting results and a more youthful, refreshed appearance.
How long do the results last?
Many patients are curious about how long the results of combining PDO threads and dermal fillers will last. It’s important to note that while both treatments are non-surgical and can provide impressive results, they don’t offer permanent solutions.
Typically, the results of PDO thread treatment can last up to 18 months. However, it’s important to note that this varies from patient to patient. Similarly, the results of dermal fillers can last anywhere from six months to two years, depending on the type of filler used and the area treated.
By combining these two treatments, the results can be longer-lasting than either treatment alone. A medical spa professional will be able to advise you on the best approach for your individual needs.
It’s worth noting that maintaining a healthy lifestyle and taking care of your skin can help extend the results of these treatments. Staying hydrated, using SPF daily, and following a good skincare routine can help keep your skin looking youthful and rejuvenated.
In summary, combining PDO threads and dermal fillers can provide impressive, long-lasting results. While they aren’t permanent solutions, they can be a great alternative to a surgical facelift for those looking for non-invasive options. Consult with a medical spa professional to determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs and goals.
