Exploring Facial Rejuvenation: Instalift vs. PDO Thread Lift

If you are exploring options for facial rejuvenation, you might have encountered terms like Instalift and PDO thread lift. While both procedures aim to tighten and lift the skin, they have some important distinctions. Let us delve into these treatments to understand their differences.

Instalift is a minimally invasive procedure designed to address sagging skin in the face and neck. It involves the use of dissolvable sutures of PLA (Poly-Lactic-Acid) with “bidirectional cones” that are inserted under the skin to lift and reposition facial tissues by anchoring the subcutaneous tissues. These cones provide an immediate lift and stimulate collagen production, leading to gradual skin tightening over time.

At our Montreal clinic, DHD, Instalift procedures are carried out by experienced professionals in a safe and controlled environment. The procedure is quick, with minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for those seeking noticeable results without extended recovery periods.

PDO Thread Lift:

PDO (polydioxanone) thread lift is another minimally invasive facial rejuvenation procedure. It entails the insertion into the skin of absorbable threads dotted with tiny hooks to lift and support sagging tissues. While these threads gradually dissolve over time, their lifting effects can last for several months to a year. Additionally, PDO thread lift stimulates collagen production, enhancing skin texture and elasticity.

Key Differences:

  1. Mechanism of Action: Instalift provides an immediate lift using bidirectional cones, whereas PDO thread lift lifts and supports tissues gradually through absorbable threads.
  2. Duration of Results: Instalift results are immediate and continue improving due to collagen stimulation, for a period up to 2 years, while PDO thread lift results may take a few weeks to fully manifest and typically last 8-12 months.
  3. Treatment Areas: Both procedures can target various areas of the face and neck, but the choice may depend on specific concerns and desired outcomes.

In summary, both Instalift and PDO thread lift offer effective options for facial rejuvenation, each with their own unique benefits. At DHD in Montreal, our team can assist you in selecting the best treatment based on your individual needs and goals.
