PDO Threading is a non-surgical skin tightening procedure that utilized hypodermic needles pre-loaded with an absorbable PDO suture to tighten the skin instantly and over time. PDO Stands for PolyDioxanOne and is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardio-thoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue
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 & Micro-needling). 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 skin tightening 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, creating new collagen for a tighter, smoother complexion. It is “controlled healing" occurring underneath the skin. NO CUTS OR INCISIONS!
Mesh Or Lift
There are two types of procedures with PDO Threads:
The first one, called the NovaMesh, consists of creating a mesh under the skin (i.e. 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally). Sort of like a #hashtag, or a net. These sutures will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production. The NovaMesh tightens the skin naturally from within. Results appear naturally, without any drastic change!
The other technique, called the NovaLyft is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have “barbs” or “cogs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin repositioning. Just like the NovaMesh, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the lift!
Skin Tightening With No Cuts Or Incisions.
PURELY INJECTIONS! RESTORING THE V-SHAPE A beautiful and healthy face has a "V-shape". With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this "V-shape" diminishes or inverts.
The idea behind skin tightening with PDO Threading technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the "V-shape" or where necessary to delicately lift the tissues and re-position the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it’s been lost.
Tighten Loose Skin Around The Neck & Jaw
Although NovaThreads can be inserted almost anywhere, they are especially effective in 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. Book a consultation to discuss skin tightening treatment for your face.
