How to Achieve Actual Full Face Rejuvenation by Combining Dermal Fillers and PDO Threads
When it comes to anti-aging procedures, two of the most popular are Dermal Fillers: Juvederm, Voluma, RHA) and PDO thread lifts. We know you’ve heard about these two power services, we’ve talked about them over and over, and we are ALL obsessed with the results we see on Social Media and practices. As an anti-aging clinic, we know what they do and how they work together, but realize that we can never share enough information about services with our clients to help them understand how services work and if they are the right option for the results they want. So, one more time – dermal fillers are used to fill in the sagging areas such as nasolabial folds, hollow areas under the eyes, and jowls to help make these areas look lifted, refreshed, and plumper. Dermal Fillers are pre-filled syringes with natural substances such as hyaluronic acid that are injected into specific areas for an outcome.
A PDO Threads Lift is a procedure that uses dissolvable sutures to rejuvenate and lift sagging skin. It’s a much cheaper and faster alternative to surgery, but will not last as long as surgery and the results are not as dramatic. Recovery from both these procedures is minimal and it’s often possible to return to work the same day.
Now that you know about the basic differences between dermal fillers and a PDO Thread Lift, let’s look at how we can use them together to create an even more stunning transformation – a full facial rejuvenation.
Is a Full Facial Rejuvenation Right for You?
At Beautique Medical Spa all treatment recommendations are made by using our proprietary combined therapy approach which gives you a more natural, youthful look.
The first step in determining whether a full facial rejuvenation is right for you begins with our aesthetics team examining your face as a whole versus treating specific target areas. How do we do this? By utilizing one of the most advanced dermal imaging systems available called the VISIA. This system provides an in-depth skin analysis of your individual facial characteristics while looking at its strengths and weaknesses. It gives us the opportunity to measure your skin pigmentation, and pore size while assessing UV spots, sun damage, texture, and wrinkles. This helps our team develop your BeautiSkinprint, a treatment plan that is as unique as you are – while also tracking your progress and treatment results. This way we are able to deliver the best results possible.
So what exactly is Full Face Rejuvenation? Full Face Rejuvenation treats the areas from your forehead to your chin. The typical candidate for this type of facial rejuvenation is someone who is in their mid to late 40s, notices sagging skin, and wants to restore lift and vitality. Full Face Rejuvenation will use services such as Dermal Fillers, Toxins, and threads to make sure that we address all causes associated with aging and in some cases extreme weight loss that can cause sagging as well. Full Face Rejuvenation allows us to take the entire symmetry of your face and address it as one area so that we can help knock off about 10-15 years immediately.
“Why would I need a total face rejuvenation?” Generally speaking, men and women start to show signs of aging from their mid-20s on. The inevitable battle with biological processes or sometimes just genetics. Either way, we start noticing mild to moderate sagginess, wrinkles, and lines on the face. Most patients start treating with Botox and although it is a great preventative option it does not deliver on improving sagginess and volume loss in the face.
As mentioned, using the full facial rejuvenation combination of Dermal Fillers and PDO threads is usually for anyone who wants to have a total refresh and treat, forehead, eyes, cheeks, jaw contour, and lips. To achieve results we would propose a combination of Dermal Filler and Threads to address the immediate filling, lifting, and plumping of facial areas, PDO Threads to help support the lift and tightening of areas in a way that Dermal Fillers can’t, and then always incorporate a Toxin (Botox or Jeuveau) to relax the superficial wrinkles found around your eyes, forehead, and glabella. While all of these services are great on their own, when combined under the hands of an expert, the results just become next-level and really end up saving you way more money in the end because you will be treated for optimal outcome instead of the more common “bandaid” approach so typical in most MedSpas today.
Another Facial Rejuvenation Treatment that we commonly use at Beautique Medical Spa is the Liquid Facelift which basically uses
Dermal fillers to add volume to specific areas of concern filling in unwanted lines, and giving you a refreshed look. It results in providing you with a plumper look and can provide some lifting capacity (not as much as PDO Threads) and lasts much longer than Botox because it is a completely different procedure. Botox and Dermal Fillers do not act the same or are used to treat the same concerns. Dermal filler injections can last anywhere from 9 -24 months depending on how fast your body metabolizes the Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and which brand works best for you. Beautique master injectors specialize in a variety of dermal fillers. With over 20 years in practice, we’ve had the chance to try every Dermal Filler on the market and our two favorite brands include Juvéderm, and the Designer RHA Collection. Each filler has its own unique properties that can be customized to meet the needs of each patient. Click to Learn more about Commonly Treated Areas Using Dermal Fillers.
A Quick Guide to PDO Threads
PDO threads is a minimally invasive medical aesthetics procedure that can be used to lift and tighten the skin without long recovery commonly found. Threads are most commonly used on the face, neck, or body and are often used to improve the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and cellulite. A PDO thread lift uses collagen-stimulating threads made from polydioxanone (PDO), a biodegradable material that is FDA-approved for use in sutures. What’s the difference between this lift and a dermal filler one? PDO Threads lift and tighten the whole face in at once (for best results multiple sessions may be recommended)! In addition to the lifting and tightening, another advantage a PDO thread lift provides is increased collagen production which leads to replacing the sutures and providing longer-lasting results. You can expect to see your PDO thread lift benefits last up to 3 years.

Long-Lasting Results You are Going to Want
Because dermal fillers are used to fill in lines and facial folds while providing subtle lift, combining Fillers with PDO threads will help you achieve targeted optimal results quicker because the results you can get from combining therapies will give you the ultimate lift you may need. Most services such as Botox injections and Dermal Fillers, when used alone, provide short-term solutions used to treat very different concerns and for this reason, it’s important to get the recommendation from experts, like your team at Beautique, because once we know what your concerns are and we’ve created your Beauty SkinPrint that takes your unique facial structure into consideration, we are able to combine these injectables with PDO threads to provide your unique optimal solution.
Most Popular Combined Treatments with PDO Threads include:
- PDO Threads + Neurotoxins, like Botox, and Jeuveau, are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles found around your Crow’s feet, Glabella, Forehead, etc. Neurotoxins help eliminate the visible lines and wrinkles while threads help to provide lift, especially in the brow area.
- PDO Threads + dermal fillers such as Juvederm and RHA can replicate the results of a surgical facelift without any dramatic results and recovery that comes with surgery. You’ll notice a fuller appearance and a larger lift result.
- PDO Threads + laser skin resurfacing to provide lift and collagen stimulation at the dermal level while simultaneously addressing skin issues, such as age spots, acne scars, or sun-damaged skin on the superficial (epidermal layer) to provide you with smooth, flawless-looking skin.
Our next most Common Facial Rejuvenation Packages are Midface Rejuvenation, and this basically means that we are treating the mid-face: cheeks, lips, under the eye, and nasolabial folds. It doesn’t mean we’ll treat each of those areas but rather based on your feedback, that’s the general area that we would consider when creating your treatment plan to let you know what services and how many units/syringes you would need to treat those areas.
It’s very important to understand that no two faces are the same and when we make our recommendations it’s based upon your particular facial structure, symmetry and anatomy. Setting expectations is key, and remember that just because your friend, celebrity, or influencer used a certain amount of units/ syringes/ treatment does not mean that you will use the exact amount regardless of whether they are older, younger, heavier, thinner, etc. than you. We will always follow FDA guidelines for dosing along with our expertise and proprietary protocols to give you the attention you desire and deserve so that you get the best results.
We can tell you that one thing that does apply to everyone is that facial rejuvenation packages are designed according to your aesthetic needs, including a very thorough consultation with your own Beauty SkinPrint creation, and will include additional therapies for skin tightening or skin surface rejuvenation, and skincare products that will give you results. And when you commit to treatment plans and packages instead of purchasing separate therapies for sagging skin and wrinkles, taking advantage of packages and combining different options will give you better results which will always save you money.
Are you ready for a facial rejuvenation treatment that provides powerful results you can get when combining PDO Threads with Dermal Fillers? If you’re interested in lifting, tightening, and plumping your skin so you can look 10 years younger, then this combination treatment is definitely worth scheduling a complimentary consultation with us at Beautique to find out what would best give you the results you’re looking for.
