ou have a few different options to deal with facial skin that you feel is saggy, droopy, and looking a bit older than you wish it would. Dermal fillers and PDO thread lifts are two great options – if you are trying to decide between the two, New Look Skin Center can help!
What are dermal fillers?
There are a variety of dermal fillers available, such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®. The filler you choose depends on the results you would like to see – your skin care professional can help you decide which one is right for you. Dermal fillers are strategically injected into the skin to help reduce wrinkles, add volume, and lift sagging skin.
What is a PDO thread lift?
In a PDO thread lift, tiny threads are inserted into the skin to lift sagging skin. A thread lift also prompts new collagen to grow . A protein that helps the skin to look smooth, refreshed, and younger looking. Over time, these threads are harmlessly absorbed by the body.
So, which one is right for you?
Your skin care expert will go over all of your options and help you to decide what procedure would be best for you. Here are some questions to consider:
- Is it painful? Fillers come with a mild anesthetic – most patients say that getting a filler feels like a little pinprick. For a PDO thread lift, numbing medication is applied before the procedure. Patients say that after that, all they feel is a bit of pressure.
- How long will the results last? Depending on the filler you choose, the results can last 1 to 2 years. The effects of a PDO thread lift can last 2 to 3 years.
- Are there side effects? With fillers, you may have some redness, swelling, and bruising. The main side effect of a thread lift is swelling.
