For both patients and providers throughout the aesthetic industry, results are king. It’s the efficacy of injectables, laser treatments, and cosmetic implants that’s the primary driver of consumer interest and repeat business.
Simply put: if the treatment doesn’t work, or doesn’t work well enough in relation to cost and discomfort, patients will simply lose interest. Worse still, they may even seek the next best treatment at your competitor’s office. And who can blame them?
When providing or searching for aesthetic treatments, value matters. But how do we define value in the fast-paced and highly competitive world of medspas, dermatology offices, and plastic surgery clinics?
Bang For Your Buck – Value-Added, Cost-Effective Aesthetic Solutions from PDO Max
The ultimate value of an aesthetic treatment depends on who you ask. For patients, lasting benefits, minimal downtime, and affordability speak volumes. For providers, patient satisfaction, ROI, and in-office procedure time are crucial.
However, it can be difficult to find a treatment option that combines these values for both parties. Thankfully, there’s a way for everyone to get what they want.
The Case for Smooth PDO Threads & PDO Thread Lifts
If you’re already offering PDO thread lifts at your practice, congratulations! PDO thread lifts are quickly becoming the leading non-surgical facelift procedure across the globe. If you aren’t offering PDO threads yet, now is the perfect time to invest in your business.
With expert in-office, hands-on training programs and on-demand e-learning courses, PDO Max makes it easier than ever to expand your treatment lineup.
But even if you are offering PDO threads at your practice, you may not be maximizing that opportunity for the benefit of all involved. Here’s how you can add that touch of magic to your thread lifts that every patient deserves.
PDO Threads – Combining Smooth & Barbed For Ultimate Success
PDO threads come in nearly too many shapes and sizes to list, but there are two essential varieties with complimenting functions.
Barbed PDO Threads
Facelifts remain one of the most popular treatment options worldwide, but not everyone is ready for the expense and downtime. Non-surgical alternatives are enjoying historically high popularity, too, and barbed PDO threads are the reason why.
Barbed threads grab and lift soft tissues along primary facial vectors, combining both the art of cosmetic implantation and the science of beauty. Barbed threads go in quickly, have long-lasting effects, and benefit from purpose-built supporting threads (such as the Levo Lock) and topical treatments (such as our AfterGlo™ Serum).
But the best partner a barbed thread can have is a smooth thread. Here’s why.
Smooth PDO Threads
When positioned artfully, smooth threads help their barbed counterparts carry some of the load. But the benefits of our Smuth thread varieties go far beyond simple support.
While barbed threads lift tissue to take the sting out of deeper wrinkles, fine lines may remain and even worsen over time. Smooth threads solve fine lines by supercharging collagen synthesis over a wide treatment area.
With boosted collagen AND lifted soft tissue, PDO thread lifts at your office boast a two-pronged approach to total facial rejuvenation.
Smooth PDO Threads & Supercharged Collagen
For providers and patients, collagen is the name of the game. This naturally occurring structural protein may be abundant in the human body, but without a little direction and inspiration, it’s not always sent where it’s needed most.
Naturally, even the safest polydioxanone cosmetic implants register as “damage” to our bodies, but this works in our favor. By tricking the skin into sensing “damage,” smooth PDO threads direct collagen and elastin distribution. Much like collagen induction therapies (microneedling, RF microneedling), this result has numerous benefits.
With boosted collagen, your patients should see a drastic difference, including such obvious and delightful results as:
- Tighter skin
- Minimized fine lines
- Softened wrinkles
- Fewer acne scars
- More even skin tone
- More even skin texture
- Sharper facial contours
- Improved skin volume
- Smaller pores
Combine these benefits with the lifting effect of barbed PDO threads and watch the accolades, new business, and word of mouth grow. By implanting smooth threads alongside their barbed cousins, you can increase results for your patients and inspire newer, more enthusiastic businesses.
Barbed & Smooth Threads – A Win/Win For Everyone
Determining the value of an aesthetic treatment certainly depends on who you ask. But if we had to break it down, it might look a little like this.
Value for Providers:
- Patient Satisfaction
- In-office procedure time
Value for Patients:
- Lasting benefits
- Minimal downtime
By combining barbed and smooth PDO threads, you’re placing checkmarks down both columns of the treatment value divide. Once in place, barbed and smooth threads create a lasting uptick in collagen that boosts skin health for years. Furthermore, PDO thread lifts are already famous for their minimal downtime and affordability.
While the lifting effect of barbed threads is enough to wow patients, the extra results on offer from smooth threads enhance the patient experience while extending outcomes. With less than an hour of in-office time and eye-popping margins, PDO threads put smiles on faces—regardless of whose face it is.
Combine Barbed & Smooth PDO Threads for Ultimate Results
A PDO thread lift without both barbed and smooth varieties is only half as potent as it could be. While some patients might prefer a touch-up now and then, drastic results lead to drastic satisfaction. PDO Max makes delivering results for your patients easier by enabling stronger outcomes. Our Levo Lock, AfterGlo™ Serum, barbed threads, Smuth threads, and expert training empower your business to meet the highest demands. To learn more, contact PDO Max today!
