What are NovaThreads?

They are Hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture.  PDO threads are used to lift the jawline and smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the neck and lower face. No cuts or incisions. Minimal downtime and minimal discomfort.

What is a PDO absorbable suture?

  •  It’s a 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.
  • Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.
  • PDO is fully absorbable, but the skin is repairing itself which stimulates long-lasting collagen growth.

Firming threads consist 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 of our new collagen production.  The firming threads tighten the skin naturally from within.  Results appear naturally, without any drastic change


Lifting Threads are utilized to gently lift tissue along the jawline.  The PDO sutures have “barbs” which provide a grip underneath the skin.  Sutures are inserted along the jawline which helps instantly lift jowls and tighten the jawline. Just like Firming Threads, they will then build new collagen which will secure the lift and hold for up to 12 months.
