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!*
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!*
Developed in Korea, PDO (Polydioxanone) Thread Lift is a new minimally invasive technique offering a subtle and natural looking lift which can generate collagen and elastin with the effects lasting typically 1-2 years.* Polydioxanone sutures have long been used in surgery for cutaneous and subcutaneous suturing more than 30 years. Considered safe and hypoallergenic, this material meets all the requirements established by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for suturing. PDO Absorbable Threads may be combined and compliment many existing modalities with very few contraindications and side effects, and minimal down time. The use of PDO Threads shows visible results of rejuvenation and pathological stimulation of as much as 100% new collagen. Patients confirm increased skin rejuvenation, skin lifting, brightened skin tone, increase in volume, and an improvement in skin wrinkles.*
