A thread lift can accomplish many of the same aesthetic objectives as a facelift but less invasively. Instead of using surgical instruments, a thread lift is performed with ultra-thin threads that lift and elevate sagging contours. The procedure can beautifully restore definition in the lower face, correcting jowls, wrinkles, and sagging skin. The threads also trigger collagen regeneration, which softens and smooths the complexion over time, improving elasticity.
Contract fat tissue which instantly tightens skin
Promote collagen production (something Botox does not!)
Diminish fine lines, wrinkles and create a softer skin texture
Offer facelift results via a minimally invasive treatment
BOTOX is a neuromodulator that works by temporarily blocking the chemical signals to the nerves that instruct the facial muscles to contract. When injected, BOTOX can dramatically reduce dynamic wrinkles, smoothing the complexion and rejuvenating the facial expression. Patients look more well-rested, youthful, and relaxed after BOTOX. For some patients, BOTOX can even prevent new wrinkles from forming in the first place.
BOTOX treatment is completely non-surgical and non-invasive. It takes just minutes to perform, with results lasting up to 3-4 months. While it can address facial aging, BOTOX is not able to combat skin laxity in the way that a thread lift can, so it might not be appropriate for those seeking a reduction in sagging skin.
While PDO threads are great, Botox is proven and loved by millions for its many benefits. For example, Botox:
Prevents the development of future fine lines and wrinkles
Can treat migraines when administered strategically by a professional injector
Fights acne by preventing breakouts and potential scarring
Has alternative uses to treat TMJ (lockjaw) and excessive sweating (hyperhidrosis)
Is relatively painless, especially when the area is numbed
Is a little less invasive than PDO Threads
Fine Lines & wrinkles
Lasts 3-4 months
Helps migraines & TMJ
Results take up to 2 weeks
More intense results
Addresses deeper set wrinkles
Lasts 6-9 months
Honestly, it’s up to you! Many of my clients love PDO Threads AND Botox, it just depends on your unique beauty goals and preferences.
BOTOX is a good option for patients who are just beginning to see the signs of aging, such as wrinkles and lines forming when they laugh, squint, frown, or smile. With no downtime, patients can quickly return to their normal schedules.
A thread lift is appropriate for those with more advanced signs of aging but who aren’t quite ready for a surgical facelift. It can address lines and wrinkles but can also reverse volume loss through the regeneration of collagen reserves and can elevate sunken midface contours. The tradeoff with a thread lift, of course, is the longer downtime, which lasts 2-4 weeks.
