PDO Threads vs Fillers: Making the Right Choice at Scottsdale Skin and Holistic Health
At Scottsdale Skin and Holistic Health, located at 7500 E. Pinnacle Peak Rd. Suite A207 Scottsdale, AZ 85255, we often encounter questions from our patients regarding the choice between PDO Threads and Fillers. These two treatments serve different purposes, and we are here to help you understand their unique benefits.
Benefits of PDO Threads
PDO Threads, also known as Polidioxanone threads, are biodegradable sutures primarily used to lift and tighten sagging skin. Among the various types, the “barbs” are the most popular. These hair-like sutures have tiny projections that, when activated, grip the tissue, allowing for effective lifting. While other thread types like smooth and twist can add volume and stimulate collagen, they may not achieve the same volume enhancement as fillers.
Benefits of Fillers
Fillers, including popular brands like Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse, and Sculptra, are designed to restore volume in areas where fat or tissue loss has occurred or augmentation is desired. Restoring volume often leads to a natural lifting effect, as the skin becomes fuller and appears tighter. However, it’s important to exercise caution with fillers to avoid an over-volumized look, which may seem tight but lacks a youthful appearance.
One noteworthy filler option is Sculptra, made from poly-lactic acid, a true biostimulator. Sculptra stimulates your own collagen production over time, gradually enhancing volume and skin quality. While not an instant solution, the long-term benefits make it a favorite choice.
PDO Threads vs Fillers
In conclusion, the choice between PDO Threads and Fillers ultimately comes down to what feels right for you as our valued client. Both treatments offer unique benefits and can address various concerns, whether it’s achieving a lifted appearance with PDO Threads or restoring volume with Fillers.
