PDO Threads vs. Silhouette InstaLift

PDO Threads vs. Silhouette InstaLift in Olney

Considering drastic measures to help give your aging appearance a boost? Great news – you don’t have to! You can dramatically improve your appearance with a thread lift, which provides immediate results but without a risky face lift procedure.

An in-office thread lift can be done in about an hour with no scalpel, no scarring, and no downtime afterward. Two options patients have are PDO threads and Silhouette InstaLift. 

What Is the Difference Between PDO Threads and Silhouette InstaLift?

While a PDO thread lift is able to treat moderate to advanced skin laxity, the Silhouette InstaLift is best for patients with only mild to moderate laxity. However, InstaLift can be used in patients as young as 18, whereas PDO threads are ideal for patients 35 to 50 years of age. 

Finally, PDO threads are made of polydioxanone, a suture that is absorbable by your body, and InstaLift is made from a combination of polyglycolic acid and poly-L-lactic acid, both of which are also biodegradable. Both thread options are safe and effective when it comes to providing sensational results.

What Does a Thread Lift Feel Like?

While relatively pain free, especially when compared to a face lift, a thread lift may cause discomfort. Your provider can apply a local anesthetic to help minimize discomfort. You may feel a sensation of tightening and / or pressure under your skin during a thread lift.

What’s the Clear Winner for Facial Rejuvenation in Olney Without a Traditional Face Lift?

PDO threads for the win! When it comes to getting a tighter lift for optimal results from a thread lift, there is no comparison as PDO thread lifts better optimize soft tissue areas. And, PDO threads also treat more advanced aging as mentioned above. 

To see if you’re an ideal candidate for facial rejuvenation with PDO threads so you can get the look of a face lift without the risks and downsides, call our anti-aging specialists today at 301-917-3870!
