Novathreads in Seattle & Bellevue WA

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

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.
