Nova Threads PDO Threads Lift
PDO Threads are hypodermic needles preloaded with an absorbable PDO suture. PDO or Polydioxanone is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture that is used in all areas of the body and is considered one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
Threads are used to either create volume or to lift sagging skin by using a mesh or lifting technique. PDO threads are especially effective when used in the cheeks, upper face, lower face, jawline and neck.
After numbing with a small amount of local anesthesia, the PDO threads are inserted by a small insertion site followed by the blunt tip cannula into different layers of the skin. Once inserted, the threads anchor the skin and lift it upwards.
The procedure is not typically painful due to the use of lidocaine anesthesia. There are some areas of the face that have more nerve endings and some patients might experience mild discomfort during the insertion procedure.
Typically, the procedure is completed within 30 minutes to 1 hour.
At Seychelles, most clients are happy with the initial PDO thread treatment. We do schedule a 2 week follow up appointment to reassess and determine if more threads are needed.
The PDO threads will dissolve naturally in 4 to 6 months but the body will also be making new collagen Improving volume and lift where the threads were placed.
After PDO threads are inserted, clients can immediately return to normal activities. There are some exercise and heat restrictions that need to be followed for 2 to 4 weeks after insertion to promote proper healing and minimize bruising.
Results should be noticeable immediately after the procedure, but maximum effect will occur over 4 to 6 weeks.
Bruising, swelling and mild tenderness at the areas of the treatment sites may occur and are common. Asymmetry and irregularity of the tissue can also occur but typically resolves within 2 weeks.
