What it is?
Dr. Turban offers several non-surgical treatments to reshape the patient's mid face to improve cheekbone definition.
As we age, our face begins to sag. There are two ways to improve skin's volume in the mid-face. PDO thread reposition the natural fat pad and produce new collagen. To enhance the PDO thread treatment, we use dermal filler to improve volume, smoothen cheeks, and enhance face shape.
Do we have to do PDO Threading & Filler together?
No. Depending on your desire and goals, you can get treatments separately or together.
