Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is a revolutionary new treatment in the world of aesthetics, butPDO threads themselves have been used safely for decades for variousapplications, like treating gynecological disorders or suturing incisions aftermedical procedures. When used as an aesthetic treatment, there are a few thingsyou should know.First, it mechanically results in instant skin lifting. Second, it contracts fat tissueto result in instant skin tightening. Third, it promotes collagen production and neovascularization to renew your skin at the cellular level. All of this works together to give you enhanced skin texture, fewer fine lines and wrinkles andmore elastic skin.
2. How long does it take?
One of the best things about this treatment is it only takes 20 to 40 minutes. Afterthat, you’re free to go back to work or whatever else you had scheduled for therest of your day.
3. What can I expect before treatment?
Before treatment starts, we will apply a topical numbing agent and local
anesthetic to the treatment site. The needle used during this treatment is so fine it
will not cause any pain. However, we provide local anesthesia to ensure you feel
no discomfort during the treatment.
4. What is Microneedling best for?
Microneedling is used to treat and improve conditions like acne scarring, fine lines and
wrinkles, loose skin, skin texture, pore size, brown spots, stretch marks, and pigment
issues. It's also called skin needling, collagen induction therapy (CIT), and
percutaneous collagen induction (PCI).
5. What’s the difference between a PRP facial and a PRP
PRP facials and PRP facelifts both prompt skin cell and collagen growth. The main
difference between the two is their results.
During a PRP facial, Collagen Induction Therapy is initiated by utilizing a Procell or
Cosmopen device, a process known as microneedling. After the blood has been
drawn and centrifuged the PRP serum is formed. The serum is then applied onto the
microneedled skin, where it enters to saturate the skin and speed up collagen
PRP facials reduce acne scarring, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, correct
hyperpigmentation, and improve overall skin tone and texture.
During a PRP facelift, PRP is combined with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. Master
injectors with WFD injects the serum directly into your face. This creates a more
dramatic effect that mimics a facelift.
PRP facelifts immediately plump up your skin, creating a fuller, younger look.
Simultaneously, they promote collagen and elastin growth much deeper in the skin.
PRP facelifts also diminish wrinkles and fine lines, reduce pores, and create healthier
6. What is Botox®?
Botox is just the brand name of a certain neuromodulator, called “Botulinum Toxin
Type A” but Botox® refers to an injectable cosmetic treatment used to effectively
reduce fine lines and wrinkles on the face. Now, don’t let the word “toxin” scare you,
it is completely safe to use (it has been FDA approved since 1989), but only by a
licensed medical professional. There are also other well-known brand names for the
same type of product, such as Dysport® or Xeomin®. Botox is the preferred
neuromodulator used at the WFD.
7. Which wrinkles on my face can I treat with Botox®?
Cosmetic Botox® is FDA approved for use on
● Crow’s feet around the eyes
● Horizontal lines on the forehead
● Wrinkles between the eyebrows
● Wrinkles around the mouth ( smoker’s lines)
● Turn frowns upside down
8. Does it hurt?
Any injection can hurt, but the needles used for Botox® injections are very small, so
pain is usually minimal. At WFD we offer ice packs and even numbing cream, so you
may not feel much pain, if anything at all!
9. What's the difference between Botox® and fillers?
People easily get these two types of injectables confused all the time, but here’s an
easy way to distinguish between the two: Botox® is for limiting muscle movement,
fillers are for building volume.
Botox® reduces the activity of muscles in the face that cause wrinkles. Facial fillers,
however, fill the trouble areas with a gel made up of hyaluronic acid, which helps to
plump and lift the skin to replace volume loss.
10. Which filler do I need?
The choice of filler depends on the individual patient, their treatment goals, and
personal facial anatomy. I recommend booking a consultation to discuss these
things with your provider.
11. How long do the results last?
The effects are long lasting but not permanent. Derma fillers can last anywhere from
6 months to 2 years, depending on a number of factors including the patient’s age,
area treated, type of filler used, quantity of filler used, and lifestyle.
12. Are there any side effects?
Common side effects of any neuromodulator injectable include:
● Muscle weakness near the injection sites
● Slight bruising
13. What are the risks and side effects?
In general, dermal fillers are considered very safe. The most common reactions are
redness, swelling, bruising, itching, and tenderness. These are typically mild and
resolve spontaneously in 1-7 days for most patients. Other side effects are very rare.
