NovaThreads®

WHAT ARE NOVATHREADS? NO CUTS, NO INCISION, PURELY INJECTIONS

  • It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures that are typically used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
  • With years of clinical studies, PDO threads can now be used cosmetically to reposition the skin while stimulating collagen production.
  • Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue only healthy looking skin

There are two types of procedures utilizing the 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. This Mesh 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!

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!

Results and patient experience may vary. Contact us today to set up your complimentary consultation.
