If you’re looking to freshen up your appearance and have already done some research on the matter, you may be overwhelmed by all of the options available. Notably, PDO threads, Dermal fillers, Botox etc.
In this article we are going to discuss the Pros and Cons of PDO Threads Vs Botox.
Thread lift procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery. Thread lifts claim to tighten your skin by inserting medical-grade thread material into your face and then “pulling” your skin up by tightening the thread.
By opting for a thread lift, you can achieve a subtle lift that reduces wrinkles and jowls and tightens skin.
PDO Thread lifts Pros:
This procedure can be performed in about 45 minutes, and, if you want to, you can go right back to work afterward. Finding a trained, licensed provider is the key to a safe, effective thread lift.
Thread lifts are considered a low-risk procedure with minimal recovery time, but side effects of redness, bruising, and swelling do occur.
A thread lift is less expensive than a traditional facelift, but it’s not covered by insurance. Costs vary according to many factors, but the average cost ranges from $1,000 – $2,000.
Thread lift procedures aren’t as dramatically effective as facelifts, and studies on their long-term efficacy are lacking. Results from a thread lift last from 1 to 3 years. For best results, surgeons recommend combining a thread lift with other kinds of anti-aging procedures.
PDO Thread Lift Cons:
Thread lifts also boost collagen production. The threads used to suspend the skin trigger a healing response that goes on until the threads dissolve.
Botulinum toxin (commercially known as Botox®) injectables block the chemical signals from nerves that tell your facial muscles to move.
As you age and your collagen production drops, each facial expression you make increases your chances of developing fine lines and wrinkles, as your skin slowly loses its ability to snap back to its initial position.
Botox doesn’t increase your skin elasticity. However, it can stop your muscles from moving, which makes wrinkles less likely to appear.
Because Botox stops muscle movements, it’s only effective against wrinkles caused by facial movements such as forehead wrinkles, crow’s feet, and wrinkles in the mouth area.
You can combine dermal fillers and Botox to fix skin laxity issues.
Cons of Botox
Ageing is a natural process that everyone will eventually experience. You can choose to age gracefully by opting for Botox or PDO threads. It all depends on your individual situation and what course of action is best to remedy the problem areas on your face.
