They are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture.
What are PDO sutures?
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads are special reabsorbable surgical sutures used for decades in cardiac and other surgeries and approved by FDA to remain in human body. It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
PDO threads could be thin as hairs, or thinner, skin smoothing threads, or thick and barbed, skin lifting threads, used depending on the intend.
Your skin fully absorbs it within 6 to 12 month.
How does it work?
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 6 to 12 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it and creating collagen.
How long your results will last?
PDO Threads will disintegrate within 6 to 12 month, creating new collagen, that will stay with you for the time depended on your skin resilience to the aging processes. Usually effect lasts up to 3 year
It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin!
