Absorbable PDO Threads:
The Face Lift Alternative
What are PDO Threads?
PDO thread stands for Polydioxanone thread, a synthetic absorbable surgical suture that helps to redefine the contour of the face.
PDO threads can very effectively:
- Improve the quality of the skin
- Reduce wrinkles
- Reduce roundness
- Lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls and neck
- Enhance the volume of the lips
- Stimulate Collagen production
The PDO threads are introduced using a delicate needle and the thread stays beneath the skin after the needle is removed.
There is an immediate noticeable improvement after the Nova-lyft and Nova-mesh treatment with a visible lift and wrinkle reduction. The stimulation reaches full effect in approx. 3 months once collagen has naturally formed around the thread.
The procedure take about 30 to 60 minutes depending on the area treated.
There is minimal recovery time as no stiches or incisions are required.
A recent study by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery showed that the thread is safely absorbed within 4-6 months and by month 7, the collagen present in the treated area increases by 100 %.
Results may last anywhere from 8 to 14 months.
