PDO Thread Lift


What is it?

  • Novathreads made of polydioxanone (PDO) are inserted into the skin via blunt cannulas to create a ‘lift’ effect. The NovaThreads are absorbable sutures that come in three types for insertion into the face; the “barbed” threads are used for lifting, the “twist” threads are used to add volume to reduce deep wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and the “smooth” threads are used to improve fine lines and texture.

What are the benefits?

  • Minimally invasive
  • Can be used in conjunction with fillers for added effect
  • Customizable for your needs
  • Natural-looking and long-lasting results

How long does the treatment take?
