Nova Threads

(Absorbable PDO Sutures)

Finally, a non-surgical almost no downtime method to lift nearly any area on the face or body.  Polydioxanone (PDO) has been used for many years in surgery for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery.  Why?   Because it is fully absorbed within 4 to 6 months & doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen production & the skin structure created with NovaThreads will hold for another 12 to 15 months.

  • Nova Threads provides natural results with no surgery, no pain with an efficient “Lunchtime Procedure”.

How does it work?

Controlled Healing

  • In medical terms “Selective Inflammatory Response” –  it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & MicroNeedling).  Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NOVATHREADS we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally!

Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads

  • Yes, PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.
  • It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin!

Although Nova Threads can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
