What Are Novathreads?

Novathreads are one of the latest options available to help stimulate collagen production. Novathreads, also known as PDO threads, stands for polydioxanone thread, a synthetic absorbable surgical suture, proven to be one of the safest materials to be implanted in in the body.

Benefits of PDO Threads

Novathread Bellevue WA

PDO threads can 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.

Novathread (PDO Thread) Treatment

Local anesthetic is gently injected into the 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 be also achieved by combining PDO threads with dermal fillers or neuro-modulators. Treatment time can vary between 20 – 60 minutes depending on the area that is being treated.



Novathread Treatment Results

Novathreads help redefine facial contour and induce collagen production. Stimulation reaches full effect in about 3 months after treatment, once collagen has naturally formed around the thread. A recent study by The American Society for Dermatologic Surgery showed that the thread is safely absorbed within 4-6 months, and by month 7, the collagen present in the treated area increases by 100%. Results may last between 8-14 months.

  • All visitors and patients are required to wear a face covering to their appointment or entering the clinic. You will remove your mask only when having your examination or treatment.

  • Any Brilliant Distinction points should be redeemed prior to your appointment. After all transactions, the credit card terminal will be disinfected.
  • Hand sanitizer and antibacterial soap is available in each examination room, receptionist station, waiting room and restroom.
  • We will be cleaning exam chairs after each patient, all surfaces, ophthalmology lamps, and computer key boards after every patient.
  • If you do not feel well, we will be rescheduling any and all patients who don’t feel their best and/or suspect possible exposure. Please know this is for the safety of other patients and staff.
  • The office will continue to follow its regular disinfecting protocols for the front desk counter, waiting room counters, restrooms and door handles.
  • Our large facility and multiple patient rooms should accommodate social spacing to minimize unnecessary contact.

We will be scheduling patients far enough apart to provide an atmosphere where you will feel that your clinic provider is just there for you. We will be doing our best to practice social distancing.
