Is it Safe to Get Dermal Fillers After PDO Threads?
Injectable dermal fillers and PDO threads are two popular, nonsurgical ways to give your skin a youthful look. Both approaches help plump skin and smooth out wrinkles without the risk of scarring.
At Body Art Rejuvenation in Miami, FL, Sheila Arniella administers both dermal fillers and PDO threads for clients seeking anti-aging solutions. Keep reading to find out how you can use dermal fillers and PDO threads together.
How do dermal fillers work?
Injectable dermal fillers come in a variety of forms and target different areas of the face. Shelia Arniella is experienced in helping clients choose the best possible filler regimen for their concerns.
When you get fillers, they are injected into the face with a fine needle. This nonsurgical option requires no downtime and can almost immediately reduce sagging, wrinkles, and fine lines, as well as plump cheeks and lips. They can even help sculpt the face.
There are very few side effects associated with fillers (unless you have an allergy to an ingredient), and many include substances (such as hyaluronic acid) that are naturally occurring in the body.
What are PDO threads?
During a PDO thread lift, a synthetic monofilament (or thread) is inserted into the face with a very fine needle. The thread is then pulled gently to lift the skin. Over the next 4 – 6 months, the threads are absorbed by the body. As they dissolve, they stimulate the production of collagen in the treatment areas to improve skin tone and texture and give a more youthful look.
PDO thread lifts are popular among clients aged 35 – 65, and benefits include:
- Plumper, more youthful skin
- A noninvasive approach
- A reduction in the appearance of mild wrinkles, sagging, mouth creases, jowls, and creases around the mouth and nose area
- Longer-lasting results than wrinkles relaxers (like BOTOX®) or many dermal fillers
Is it safe to get dermal fillers and PDO threads at the same time?
You can get dermal fillers and PDO threads at the same appointment, and they are often combined to achieve aesthetic goals.
Since both procedures require precise injections in very specific areas of the face, you can have thread lifts in one area and fillers in another. This combination treatment can even help clients put off more invasive procedures (such as facelifts) or sculpt the face to produce a sharper jawline, plumper cheeks, and smoother skin.
Can you get dermal fillers after PDO threads?
You could get dermal fillers at one appointment and come back a few days later for a PDO thread lift. It's generally wise to let any swelling and healing take place before getting another treatment if dermal fillers and PDO threads are not done at the same time. That's not because the procedures affect one another; it's simply to give your skin a chance to heal.

A combination of dermal fillers and PDO threads can be an excellent anti-aging regimen. While fillers can plump up sagging or hollowed areas on the face and smooth out wrinkles, PDO threads can lift and tighten in both the short term and the long term as they stimulate the production of new collagen.
