A liquid facelift or a PDO thread lift? The liquid facelift uses Botox and Dermal Fillers, and the Thread facelift used PDO threads. The final selection between fillers and a thread lift is up to the patient and their health care provider. While there are various variables to consider about each therapy that may lead to one or the other as the most appropriate answer. To begin, patients should have a firm grasp of the types of problems each therapy addresses. A liquid facelift with fillers generally seeks to restore volume to deflated features, fill in deep facial creases, and smooth out particular outlines – such as a recessed jawline. A PDO thread lift is often performed to tighten and lift slack skin and sagging features such as drooping jowls. Additional factors to consider while selecting between fillers and thread lifts include the following:
How long the liquid Facelift takes?
Fillers normally take less than an hour to inject. However, a PDO thread lift may take up to an hour or more.
The degree of discomfort associated with the treatment: For both thread lifting and liquid facelifts, a topical anesthetic is often administered to decrease any pain the patient may suffer.
Whether any downtime is required after a liquid facelift
We advise our patients to restrict heavy physical activity for up to a week after a thread lift, while most patients may resume work and other daily activities practically immediately following either a thread lift or filler injections.
How quickly the effects become obvious
While both thread lifting and fillers provide noticeable benefits almost immediately. However, the complete outcomes of a PDO thread lift might take several weeks to develop. These improvements should continue over several months as the patient’s natural collagen synthesis increases.
How long the results may last
Fillers often need re-injections once or twice a year. However, the effects of a PDO thread lift may last up to two to three years.
