NOVATHREADS: What is it?

It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. - Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue. Results last 12-18 months! - • 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! - YOUR SKIN GENTLY REACTS TO THE INSERTED THREADS. - 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! -
