A thread lift is a fast, minimally invasive cosmetic technique that lifts and tightens sagging skin by inducing collagen production. Once placed under the skin, the threads produce a visible lifting effect
Nova PDO Threads
PDO Threads are hypodermic needles that contain absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) sutures, which play an important role in this non-surgical facelift procedure. PDO threads are used for cardiothoracic surgery and as such, are one of the safest materials to insert in the body. With the absorption capabilities of these, PDO threads dissolve within the body after 4-6 months following your non-surgical face-lifting session.
There are two types of procedures with PDO Threads. The first one, using smooth threads, creates a mesh under the skin. This mesh will serve as the foundation for new collagen production. This technique tightens the skin naturally from within.
The other technique (using barbed threads) delivers a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have ‘barbs’ that provide a grip underneath the skin. The sutures are inserted the same way, except that they can be pulled in one or two directions, creating an instant skin repositioning.
