PDO Threading: Is It The Same As Fillers?
If you have heard of fillers, then you have probably also heard of PDO threading, but many are not sure what it actually is and how it compares to regular fillers. Essentially, threading provides a mild lift by tightening your face all in one treatment. Fillers, on the other hand, add volume to specific areas, with moderate lifting ability. To easily summarize, fillers provide volume and threading will lift and tighten.
HOW DOES THREADING WORK?
PDO threads are contained within a thin tube called a cannula. This cannula is inserted into the sub-dermal layers of your skin. The threads reposition loose skin when inside and tighten as the needle is removed. This process lifts the skin.
If you are wondering how well this procedure works, the National Institute of Health found that PDO thread lifts work with a 90% success rate, with visible lifting and shaping of the face.
