While thread lift costs ultimately depend on several factors, there are ways you can estimate the average cost. Doing so can also help you measure a PDO thread lift against more comprehensive plastic surgery treatments.
Fortunately, Parfaire Medical Aesthetics has extensive experience offering thread lifts, and can address all of the most important questions you may have about PDO thread lift costs.
What Is The Average Cost Of a PDO Thread Lift?
The average cost of a PDO thread lift is between $700 to $4,500, depending on the treatment location, where you live, and your provider. The actual cost of your customized thread lift will likely be something you need to determine with the help of board-certified plastic surgeons.
Typically, you can start the process of formalizing a PDO thread lift cost by contacting your chosen practice location.
Which Treatment Area Is the Least Expensive?
PDO thread lift treatments that center around just the neck or jawline are the cheapest. The average cost of these procedures is between $800 and $1,000.
Luckily, the neck is one of the most popular locations for thread lifts, along with the brows, cheeks (midface), and jowls. On average, a facial thread lift is around 66% more expensive than the former option, at an average cost between $1,200 and $1,800.
Which Treatment Area Is the Most Expensive?
The most expensive PDO thread lift treatments focus on the entire face, neck, and jawline. This comprehensive treatment costs $2,000 or more.
However, it is important to note that due to the quick and easy nature of PDO thread lifts, getting multiple areas treated all at once is usually more cost-effective long term. If you’d like to treat multiple areas, receiving full treatment allows you to pay once, rather than multiple times for different areas.
PDO Thread Lift Cost Compared to Other Plastic Surgery
PDO thread lifts are often far less expensive than facelift surgery and other maintenance procedures. Here are some comparisons in greater detail:
Average PDO costs compared to other face and neck cosmetic procedures
- Facelift ($12,250): 79% more affordable
- Neck Lift ($8,725): 70%
- Rhinoplasty ($7,650): 66%
- Brow Lift ($7,225): 64%
- Chin Augmentation ($4,900): 47%
- Eyelid Surgery ($4,725): 45%
The Perfect In-Between Procedure
Facial Rejuvenation treatments are an investment, regardless of whether you choose a PDO thread lift or plastic surgery. Thread lifts do some with many advantages though, especially in the cost department.
When compared to a surgical facelift, which costs around 5x more than the average thread lift, the initial benefits are clear. Of course, PDO thread lifts aren’t permanent, lasting 1 to 3 years on average, but some would also see this as a benefit. If you’re unsure about your cosmetic treatment journey, thread lifts are much easier to start with than a facelift.
On the other hand, you might be comparing PDO thread lift costs to those of injectables like Botox. While injectables and fillers can improve skin tone aging to some extent, neither can address sagging skin. Instead, for only a bit of extra investment, thread lifts can provide you with more comprehensive and longer-lasting results.
What is a PDO Thread Lift?
A PDO thread lift is one of the most well-known minimally invasive cosmetic services. The treatment utilizes absorbable PDO (polydioxanone) threads to lift and tighten the skin. These threads, often employed in other surgeries, consist of biodegradable polyester and are safely absorbed by the body.
Threads also come in various textures. Here are some examples of thread differences:
- Thread textures. There are three primary types of thread textures. Straight, smooth threads support collagen production, while barbed threads hook into and lift the skin, and screw-like threads increase facial volume.
- Thread quantities. Generally speaking, the quantity of threads works simply, as those who want more lifting will receive a greater number of threads.
Given this variety, a PDO thread lift can be used to treat many different cosmetic issues. For example:
Instead of targeting the underlying facial muscles like a surgical facelift, PDO thread lifts elevate and sculpt the facial tissues. For this reason, the treatment only requires local anesthesia, instead of general anesthesia. Ultimately, these differences are what make thread lifts minimally invasive and effective.
Further, because a thread lift is so simple, you won’t have to worry about downtime after your procedure. Aside from avoiding pulling and straining in the treated area for at least two weeks, you can swiftly return to your regular activities, including work.
What Are The Financial Benefits of a PDO Thread Lift?
There are many financial benefits that come with choosing a PDO thread lift. Here are some of the top reasons you should consider the investment:
A PDO thread lift can cost under $1,000, depending on the treatment area, making it an affordable skin tightening treatment. On average, a thread lift will cost you over 70% less than a facelift or neck lift, and just under half that of Chin Augmentation or Eyelid Surgery.
A PDO thread lift can last up to 11 times longer than a Botox treatment. When this is considered, Botox can actually cost more than double that of a PDO thread lift over a 3-year time frame.
As a non-permanent option, PDO thread lifts are one of the most cost-effective cosmetic options.
One of the best financial benefits of PDO thread treatments is versatility. Many patients opt for different treatments or may choose multiple treatment locations depending on their financial situation.
For instance, you can choose to only treat your neck or jawline if finances are a concern, or if you’re unsure about the treatment. While this option may cost you more over time if you choose to pursue further treatments, you’ll be able to see results straight away.
Conversely, you may choose a more comprehensive treatment that focuses on your entire face and neck. While more expensive in the short term, this treatment option can save you more over time.
PDO thread lifts are a non-invasive procedure, allowing you to save time and money from not needing extra downtime. Unlike a surgical facelift, which may require up to 6 weeks of recovery, thread lifts are far less of a hassle.
If you receive a PDO thread lift on your day off, for example, you’ll be able to go to work the very next day (assuming you’re not a construction worker or fitness coach!).
For obvious reasons, this can save you hundreds of dollars in lost income, as well as prevent you from having to use your previous PTO.
Thread Lift Financing Options
When it comes to paying for your PDO thread lift, you’ll be happy to know that you have options. As an affordable treatment, many people choose to pay for their thread lift outright, whether this be through cash or card. Certain procedures can cost less than $1,000, which is no worse than your average trip to the auto mechanic.
Conversely, many people also choose to finance their PDO thread lift, so they can pay in smaller increments over time.
How to Finance Your PDO Thread Lift
If you’re interested in financing your PDO thread lift, you’re not alone. Here are some steps you can take to get the financing you need:
- Determine your costs. First, you’ll want to determine how much your thread lift is going to cost. Contact a reliable treatment facility of your choosing, and discuss your ideal procedure with them. A professional will then provide you with a quote.
- Choose a provider. Many practice locations will offer their own financing options, but you can always reach out to a bank of your choosing.
- Discuss loan terms. Loan terms for thread lifts can differ, with 6-month and 12-month no-interest loans being common. Luckily, If you settle the complete balance by the conclusion of the no-interest term, you won’t be obligated to pay anything beyond the initial procedure cost.
- Get approved. Depending on your credit, your low-cost loan can be approved shortly after you agree to the terms, regardless of which provider you choose to finance with.
Financing a PDO thread lift is as simple as any other form of financing you’ve experienced, and should take a minimal amount of time and effort.
