NOVATHREADS

Natural results, No surgery

What are NOVATHREADS®?

They are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture. PDO absorbable sutures are 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.

How do they work?

It’s amazingly simple, actually!  The key is controlled healing. 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

The PDO suture is fully absorbable. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.  NOVATHREADS® injections come in two forms: NU MESH® and NU LIFT®.

NU MESH

NU MESH® consists of creating a mesh under the skin (i.e. 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally). Sort of like a #hashtag, or a net. This Mesh will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production. The NU MESH®tightens the skin naturally from within. Results appear naturally, without any drastic change!

NU LIFT

NU LIFT® is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have “barbs” or “cogs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin re-positioning. Just like the NU MESH®, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the lift!

What can I expect?

NOVATHREADS® are loaded into a needle that looks much like and IV catheter, which is usually placed by a nurse in the ER or prior to surgery so medications can be given into a vein. It ranges from about an inch to 2 ½ inches depending on the procedure. The suture thread stays in as the needle is removed. Each thread takes less than a minute to be placed. Most all treatment areas require multiple thread placement, often in a fan-shaped pattern. Numbing medicine is applied to the skin before placement. There should be minimal discomfort and a slight redness may last 1-2 days.

NU MESH® does not have any immediate effects. As your body breaks down and chews up the PDO Thread, new collagen (like the mortar between bricks) is laid down and replaces worn-out collagen.  NU LIFT® threads with cogs or loops can help anchor the threads and can provide immediate as well as prolonged results.

Often threads can be used with botulinum toxin (BOTOX®) or fillers (JUVEDERM® or DYSPORT®) and they complement each other’s effects. Though the thread “dissolves” in a couple of months, the effects my last several months.
