PDO thread lift vs Ultherapy®

Aug 11, 2021 | Blog Tips, Body

PDO Thread Lift:

(PDO) or Polydioxanone threading also known as Sugar Threads is defined as a non-surgical procedure used to revitalize sagging skin. It’s regarded as an effective treatment procedure to lift your loose and sagging skin without invasion.

As we advance in age, the effects of our skin changes manifest most on our faces. This is because the facial muscles grow weaker, leading to facial fat loss. The eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, neck, and the areas around the eyes are mostly affected—the fat loss results in an elongated and older-looking face.

PDO Thread Lift (Sugar Thread) is a modern and effective non-surgical method used to lift the sagging skin for anyone who doesn’t wish to use the traditional surgical methods.


When are the results of PDO thread lift (Sugar Threads) treatment visible?

After undergoing a PDO thread lift, the results can be visible immediately. The results will be more noticeable within two weeks and will continue to improve as your skin produces more collagen as days progress.

PDO threads (Sugar Threads) are absorbed deep inside your skin, decreasing the chances of any scarring along the treated area.



Ultherapy® is a non-invasive facelift procedure without the use of scalpels or needles. It’s used to lessen the signs of ageing, such as wrinkles, by lifting and tightening the skin on your face, chest, and neck areas. The procedure has been cleared by the FDA and works by stimulating collagen production, resulting in an enhanced youthful look.

Ultherapy® is a fantastic option, especially if you’re not willing to undergo a surgical procedure. The outcome from this procedure is far more refined than old-fashioned surgical facelifts.


How is Ultherapy® done?

The procedure uses technology the same as ultra-sound imaging; the sound waves travel through the skin and penetrate the muscles of your desired treatment area. This causes the muscles to contract and shrink, which leads to an appealing, firm, wrinkle-free effect.


Ultherapy® entire relies on the body’s natural collagen production; there are no fillers, creams, and toxins involved.


Preparation for Ultherapy®

The preparation time for Ultherapy® treatment is minimal. You should ensure that makeup and other skincare products are removed for the area you need the procedure to be done. You may also take your pain killers and anti-inflammatory medications as instructed by our practitioner.


What to expect after Ultherapy®

Ultherapy® has no downtime. You can resume your normal activities immediately after the treatment.

After the treatment, you can start noticing results within the first few days, but it depends on your body’s collagen production capability. The results improve within one to three months. Furthermore, the results can last longer according to your body’s collagen production till the ageing process recurs again.

Does Ultherapy® Have Any Side Effects?

Though considered a non-invasive technique, you may experience some of the following effects:


  • Flashy skin but, this should disappear after a few hours.
  • Temporary swelling and tingling.
  • Numbness on some skin areas


Who is suitable for Ultherapy® treatment?

If your skin is relaxed and feels loose, you qualify for Ultherapy® treatment. You may notice some sagging skin on your eyelids or brow line, which are the first signs of ageing.

Generally, most people in their 30’s or older who have noticed some mild skin laxity are ideal for the treatment.

Ultherapy® is best suited for people with early skin laxity, such as sagging skin under the chin or jawline and wrinkles on the face.


PDO Thread Lift Vs Ultherapy®

These two treatment techniques are very effective. Their main objective is to reverse ageing signs by lifting and tightening the skin around your face and neck area. Though, the following factors will determine the outcome of each treatment method:

  • The extent of your skin’s sagginess.
  • Your level of pain tolerance
  • Your budget


Some people may request to have both treatments for them to be fulfilled with the outcome. Ultherapy® treatment can be used for people with mild sagging skin and will not necessarily need PDO thread lift.
