PDO therapy is an effective cosmetic technique that lifts and tighten sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production. It involves the implantation of fine, absorbable polydioxanone threads (similar to those used in medical suturing) into the subcutaneous layer of the skin using small needles.
Introduced to the US in 2015, NovaThreads were the first Absorbable PDO threads of their kind. Using an absorbable material: Polydioxanone; they were quickly adopted by practitioners in the United States and still are their number one choice today!
Polydioxanone is used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery. It is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for another 12 to 15 months.
NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Simply insert the whole suture in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, and pull the needle out.
The PDO thread remains under the skin..
“Selective Inflammatory Response” is the principle behind many aesthetic procedures (fractional laser, chemical peels & microneedling to name a few). Skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NovaThreads, we created a self-healing response that’s supported by your own collagen!
Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads 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.
