Patented, USA-made NovaThreads® PDO threads are endorsed and highly recommended by opinion leaders and experts throughout the aesthetic field.
PDO Threads (polydioxanone) that are made of an absorbable suture material that is commonly used in surgery. These Threads originated nearly a decade ago, and this concept came from aesthetic acupuncture which increases the lymphatic flow of the skin to the face and body when you insert needles.
The great thing about PDO Threads is that as they are absorbed, collagen forms in the area where the threads are inserted. Therefore, not only are we achieving lifting of the tissues but also seeing improvement of the collagen in the overlying skin.
What are PDO Threads?
PDO stands for polydioxanone thread, a synthetic absorbable surgical suture, proven to be one of the safest materials to be implanted into the body. PDO threads are used to temporarily enhance the appearance of the area treated.
- PDO threads can very effectively:
- Improve the quality of the skin
- Redefine the contour of the face
- Reduce wrinkles
- Lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls, and neck
- Enhance the volume of the lips
- Stimulate collagen production
How does the treatment work?
PDO threads help redefine facial contours and induce collagen production. Stimulation reaches full effect about 3 months after treatment, once collagen has naturally formed around the thread. A recent study from the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery showed that threads are safely absorbed within 4-6 months and by month 7, the collagen present in the treated area increases by 100%. Results may last between 8 to 14 months.
What happens during the treatment and how long does it take?
Local anesthetic is gently injected into entry points for threads. PDO threads are introduced using a delicate needle or a fine microcannula. You will be able to resume everyday activities in a couple of days. Great results can be achieved by combining PDO threads with dermal fillers or neuro-modulators. Treatment time can vary between 20 to 60 minutes depending on the treatment area.
When will I see results?
There is an immediate noticeable improvement with a visible lift or textural improvement. Results continue to improve over 3 months and between threads, providing further lifting and tightening.
