PDO Thread Lift - Tempe Holistic Skin Care Medical Spa

PDO Thread Lift

PDO Thread LIft

PDO Thread Lift are resorbable surgical sutures composed of biodegradable polymers. The treatment is minimally invasive and produces instant results. Polydioxanone (PDO) sutures are used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery because it is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for 12 to 15 months.

What are PDO Threads?

PDO Threads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture.


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.

How does it work? 

It’s amazingly simple, actually! Controlled Healing also known as, “Selective Inflammatory Response”, and is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & MicroNeedling). 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 PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.
