Our skin is very good at repairing itself. This technique leverages the intrinsic healing powers of our body to naturally produce collagen and create the desired beautification of your face.
How is that possible?
Tiny dissolving threads will be inserted into the desired parts. Your skin will gently react to the inserted threads and will create new collagen as it heals, naturally!
What are PDO threads?
The threads come manufactured as hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture thread. The PDO suture threads are a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures. These sutures have been safely used to perform surgery such as open-heart and a number of other surgery. PDO is one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
Are PDO absorbable suture?
Your skin fully absorbs this material within 4 to 6 months and will not leave you with any scar tissue.
How do they work?
The NovaLift and the PDO suture threads work by a controlled healing process. The PDO suture threads are fully absorbed, During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin will be repairing itself around it and depositing new collagen. The result are Natural results, No surgery and No pain. The NovaLift can easily be performed during your lunch break.
The PDO threads are manufactured in different styles and lengths. Some threads are smooth and some are barbed. The smooth threads are often used in a crisscross mesh-like fashion in one area or more, such as the cheeks. The NovaMesh will create a foundation for new collagen that result in tighter healthier looking skin and volume augmentation. Results appear naturally, without any drastic change!
The barbed style threads produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures will grip underneath the skin allowing the surgeon to pull the overlying skin in one direction or another. This technique will create an instant skin repositioning. Just like the NovaMesh, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the NovaLift!
Where can these threads be used?
PDO suture threads can be inserted almost anywhere. The NovaLift and NovaMesh are especially effective in the neck and jawline.
