What Are Nova Threads?

Nova Threads refer to a treatment that involves hypodermic needles preloaded with a type of absorbable suture made from PDO (or polydioxanone). Polydioxanone sutures are sterile, monofilament synthetic absorbable sutures composed of materials that will provide wound support for longer periods of time than other synthetic absorbable sutures. 

PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery) and are among the safest materials to be implanted in the body. Your skin will fully absorb the Nova Threads within four to six months and won’t leave behind any scar tissue making the PDO thread lift a great way to quickly and effectively address facial aging.

Understanding Selective Inflammatory Response

In medical terms, “Selective Inflammatory Response” is the principle behind a number of aesthetic procedures (including fractional laser resurfacing, chemical peels, and microneedling). 

Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting PDO threads, we make it “heal” itself by naturally creating new collagen, helping your skin retain moisture more effectively and generally hold onto that youthful, supple appearance.

Restore Your Attractive Looks With PDO Threads

A youthful and healthy face has a natural “V-shape” appearance to it which can diminish as the aging process takes its toll on your facial tissues.

This can often cause the facial shape to take on a drooping appearance as the nasolabial folds become more prominent and the jawline loses its sense of definition.  

The PDO Thread Lift works to reposition your skin and facial tissues, effectively restoring that “V-shape” where it has been lost. This impressively advanced technique enables us to tighten and firm your facial features without any surgery, meaning you’ll enjoy exciting results that don’t interrupt your active daily schedule.

Your Consultation

Visiting us for your consultation forms the first step in your exciting cosmetic journey here at Integrated Aesthetics. During this visit, you’ll meet with a practitioner to go over the details of your procedure and explore other options that might help you enjoy your ideal results. This is our chance to get to know you and your cosmetic goals, while you also learn about our staff and the ways we can support you on your aesthetic journey.

We’ll go over every aspect of the procedure with you so that you can understand everything there is to know about the PDO Thread Lift and how it’ll create the results in which you’re most interested. We can also guide you to complementary procedures that will help you enjoy a more total sense of rejuvenation. We frequently offer patients an integrated approach, thanks to our impressively robust treatment selection.

Complementing PDO Threads with Additional Procedures

During your consultation, Dr. Young Cho will call upon his extensive experience to help you explore a number of complementary procedures that can help you enjoy truly comprehensive results:

  • MyEllevate Jawline Contouring can help to enhance the results of your thread lift by creating elegant and graceful contours in your neck and jawline.
  • Neck lift surgery creates similar results with a surgical approach, for a longer-lasting outcome.
  • Dermal fillers can help by adding volume to specific areas where it would benefit your overall sense of facial harmony.
  • BOTOX and other wrinkle relaxers can help to smooth over fine lines and wrinkles that might be keeping you from looking your very best.
  • Several medspa options like laser resurfacing and microneedling can also help to enhance the tone and texture of your face.

What to Expect During Your PDO Thread Lift

Before your treatment begins, your practitioner will numb the treatment area with a local anesthetic, ensuring that you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. Small, specialized threads are then inserted at specific locations, where they will be used to internally lift and reposition tissues that have begun to sag or droop, while also working to encourage your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin.

Not only does this work to physically reposition areas of your face that have started to sag as part of the natural aging process, but it also encourages your body to continue creating collagen and elastin, which essentially rejuvenates your look from the inside out. You’ll be able to return home once the procedure is complete, and most patients only find that they experience minor swelling and tenderness, both of which quickly fade.

Here at Integrated Aesthetics, we believe that you deserve to live your most fulfilled life. As such, we’re excited to offer you a selection of more than 60 procedures, each of which can help you make your cosmetic aspirations a reality.
