What Are NovaThreads (PDO Threads)?
NovaThreads is a minimally invasive treatment that is used to treat saggy and loose skin. NovaThreads are surgical sutures comprised of polydioxanone (PDO), which makes the sutures fully absorbable. These sutures have been used in cardiac surgeries for over 60 years and have proven to be safe and effective. This treatment uses a process called “controlled healing” which stimulates collagen production naturally within the body. For 4 to 6 months your skin will start to repair itself and tighten around the sutures as they begin to dissolve naturally.
The NovaThreads Procedure
NovaThread treatment generally takes up to 60 minutes, but can vary depending on the size and extent of the treatment area. NovaThread works by inserting a preloaded cannula into the skin which leaves a thread behind when the cannula is unloaded. Immediate improvements can be seen as your skin visibly lifts up and restores that healthy looking glow. Within 1 to 2 months, collagen begins to grow between the threads and patients will start to see further tightening and lift of the skin. Our clinicians are expertly trained to precisely place the threads in areas with extensive volume loss and folding skin. This treatment is especially beneficial for patients that would like to pull and tighten skin in areas such as the neck or eyebrows. Within 4 to 6 months, your skin would have fully absorbed the threads, leaving behind no scar tissue or any other signs of treatment.
Other Areas NovaThreads Can Treat include but are not limited to...:
HOW LONG WILL THE EFFECTS LAST?
NovaThreads dissolve gradually after about 4 to 6 months, but noticeable results can be seen for another 9 to 12 months after your treatment.

Taking Arnica capsules as well as eating pineapple including pineapple juice can help reduce the chances of swelling and bruising.
