PDO Thread Lift (Sugar Threads) or Sculptra®?

Aug 10, 2021 | Blog Tips, Body

For many years, the only option for body contouring was plastic surgery, whereby fats from the body were transferred to certain parts of the body, such as butts. Similarly, plastic surgeons would do implants on specific body parts. Though the results are fantastic, not everyone is comfortable with surgery.

As an alternative, non-surgical ways of skin tightening and body contouring have been invented. PDO thread lift and Sculptra® are minimally invasive procedures favourable to people who are unwilling to undergo surgery. These newly-found methods have fewer risks than invasive treatments.

O De Rose, your one-stop aesthetic medical spa, offers first-rate minimally invasive procedures that include PDO thread lift and Sculptra® treatment to give your exceptional results.


What is PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads)?

PDO Threadlift (Sugar Threads) is a noninvasive skin lifting procedure that uses special threads composed of polydioxanone. The threads are pushed through into your body to stimulate the production of collagen that enhances skin tightening.

PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) can be used to lift the skin around eyebrows, reduce wrinkles and tighten loose skin around your face. It can also be used to contour your jawline.


 What is Sculptra®

Sculptra® is a liquid containing poly-L-lactic that is injected into the body to stimulate collagen production. Sculptra® causes an inflammatory reaction that triggers collagen formation, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and facial lines.


How is Sculptra® used?

  • Restores soft tissues volume lost in the face area
  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and facial lines
  • Restores facial contours
  • Buttocks augmentation
  • Skin rejuvenation
  • Tightening loose skin on the knees, chest and elbows


What are the similarities between PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) and Sculptra®?

  1. PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) and Sculptra® function by stimulating the production of collagen in the body. The collagen counters the sagging skin and wrinkle effects of ageing.
  2. Both PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) and Sculptra® are minimally invasive with slight side effects. In addition, the treatment procedures in PDO thread lift and Sculptra take a short time.
  3. Both PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) and Sculptra® are administered by the injection method. In PDO thread lift, threads are injected into the skin, while in Sculptra, poly-L-lactic acid is injected in the form of liquid.
  4. Both are safe with minor side effects.
  5. PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) and Sculptra® treatment have a lasting effect of up to 18 months.


How is PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) different from Sculptra®?

  1. The effects of PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) start showing immediately, while Sculptra®’s results can take up to 6 weeks to be visible.
  2. PDO thread lifts (Sugar Threads) are primarily effective for soft tissue lifting, while Sculptra® is superior for lifting huge muscle volumes such as butt augmentation.
  3. PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) involves the injection of special threads that stimulate the production of collagen. On the other hand, Sculptra® involves the injection of a Poly-L lactic that also stimulates collagen production.
