Removing Acne Scars with PDO Thread Lifts and Microneedling

Acne scars are caused by inflamed acne lesions, which leave behind a permanent mark on your skin. This can range from a smaller crater to deep holes and pits in the skin. Acne scars occur when oil glands rupture, producing an inflammatory response with an influx of blood into your skin tissues. This results in inflammation, scarring, hyperpigmentation and even surface changes like bumps or indentations around the affected area.

So how can you use PDO thread lifts and microneedles together to remove acne scars? PDO thread lifts and microneedling are two procedures that offer different benefits for your skin that complements each other as acne treatment. Used in conjunction, both treatments can help you reclaim an even and smoother skin.

Can Solid PDO Threads Be Used With Microneedling For Acne Scars?

1) PDO thread lifts help even the skin

Acne scars are a common problem that can occur after you’ve had acne. The scars can be raised or depressed, red or brown, and may feel rough or smooth to the touch. Although there is no guarantee that PDO thread lifts will get rid of your scarring completely, it’s an effective way to minimize the appearance of an acne scar without invasive procedures like surgery or injections.

PDO threads are used to create tension under the skin which pulls it back into place or out of place if you have sunken scars, tighten it up, and help break down scar tissue so that new collagen is able to grow back into place effectively over time.

When done correctly, PDO thread lift treatments can give you a more youthful appearance by smoothing out fine lines on the face while also improving acne scars or stretch marks.

2) Microneedling helps create room for your skin

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that can be done in the comfort of your own home that essentially breaks down skin tissue and helps your body produce and repair damaged skin. 

Going into details, this procedure can be done using a handheld microneedle that creates microscopic wounds on the skin which then stimulates collagen and elastin production.This, leaves you with firmer and more youthful-looking skin also combating acne scars you may have.

Furthermore, microneedling is considered to be safe, there are no recovery times involved. You can even return to your activity immediately following treatment and there will be no downtime whatsoever. 

Should You Consider Getting Both Procedures to Treat Acne Scars?

If you're considering getting both procedures, there are a few things to keep in mind. For example, PDO threads are used to lift the skin, while microneedling creates micro wounds that stimulate collagen production.

Microneedling and PDO thread lifts work well together because they address different issues from acne scarring. If you've had acne scars for a long time, your skin may have lost some of its flexibility and elasticity. This is why PDO thread lifts can be helpful for reducing sagging or making your skin look firmer overall — the result is smoother looking skin with less noticeable acne scars beneath it. 

Combining PDO thread lift with microneedling can be an ideal solution for treating mild acne scars or other imperfections on your face because both treatments work together to provide their desired results which are skin tightening and scar fading.

However, there are other factors that go into determining how successful these procedures are at treating acne scars, such as the severity of scarring and whether or not they have already tried other approaches to reducing their appearance. 

If you have mild acne scars or other imperfections on your face, it’s always best to discuss these with your cosmetic surgeon before starting any treatment. They will be able to assess the severity of your acne scars and help you find an appropriate solution for them. Your skincare specialist will be able to provide more information on which option is best for your specific needs. 

1) Both procedures have different impact on the skin

When it comes to PDO threads, they’re used to lift the skin. The threads are placed underneath your skin and then tightened with a special tool. This is similar to getting a facelift, except much less invasive. The tightening effect will last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years depending on how big a lift you need and how often you want to repeat the procedure. 

One one side, PDO thread lift also has a side benefit of making your face look more youthful. As you age, your skin loses elasticity, which causes wrinkles and sagging. By lifting your skin with the PDO thread lift, you can tighten up those areas and give yourself a more youthful appearance overall. However, PDO threads only target sagging skin; they don't affect acne scars or stretch or acne marks.

This is where microneedling comes into play. With this treatment, needles penetrate about just below the surface of your skin very quickly, creating thousands of small holes in which new collagen can grow from existing collagen fibers under your surface layer of dead cells. 

These tiny punctures are intended not only to stimulate production of new cells but also break down old scar tissue so that it can heal properly and won't cause further damage later on down there.

2) PDO thread lifts are complementary with Microneedling

PDO threads and microneedling are complementary. It's important to understand that PDO threads lift the skin as a precursor for microneedling. Meanwhile, microneedling is used to stimulate collagen production, so it's usually done in partnership with thread lifting. 

The PDO thread lifts tighten the skin, which provides better conductivity for microneedling. When you get your facial rejuvenation done with both PDO threads and microneedling, you're able to reset your face and body by stimulating collagen production at every surface level of your skin.

Microneedling also doesn't do anything for saggy skin. It's good for treating acne scars and other types of scarring but it's not permanent like PDO threads are. By combining these two treatments, you can get better results than either one alone. The PDO thread lift helps to boost collagen production in the area being treated, while microneedling stimulates the body to produce more collagen. This results in firmer, more youthful-looking skin.
