PDO Thread Lift Procedure, Benefits, and Side Effects
Help with loose and sagging skin
What are PDO threads?
PDO thread stands for polydioxanone thread, a synthetic absorbable surgical suture, proven to be one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. PDO threads are used to temporarily enhance the appearance of the area treated.
PDO threads can very effectively
- Improve the quality of the skin
- Redefine the contour of the face
- Reduce roundness
- Reduce wrinkles
- Lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls and neck
- Enhance the volume of the lips
- Stimulate collagen production
How does the treatment work?
Local anesthetic is gently injected into entry points for the threads. The PDO threads are introduced using a delicate needle or a fine microcannula. You will be able to resume everyday activities in a couple of days. Great results can also be achieved by combining PDO threads with dermal fillers or neuro-modulatiors. Treatment time can vary between 20 and 60 minutes depending on the area treated.
There is an immediately noticeable improvement after the Nova-Lyft and Nova-Mesh treatments, with a visible lift and/or textural improvement. Results continue to improve over 3 months or so as new collagen forms around and between threads, providing further lifting and tightening.
Nova-Lyft and Nova-Mesh treatments originated from medical protocols intended to improve firmness and texture. They require minimal recovery time and no general anesthesia. Specialized gentle cannulas and fine needles deliver threads precisely and quickly to improve large or small areas effectively. Since there is no incision or stitches, scarring is virtually eliminated.
