The Non-Surgery Face Lifting Alternative
PDO threads have a dual benefit, first to give a subtle lifting effect and then the threads act under the skyn to stimulate the body’s own collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic Acid. This in turn, will increase the skyn’s texture and tone; wrinkles begin to smooth, pores and acne scars begin to narrow. A slight improvement can be seen immediately but the results are best noted in 2-4 months when the collagen begins to rebuild. The changes in the skyn’s texture and tone begin to improve monthly due to new collagen formation and typically lasts 9-18 months. Used to complement other anti-aging modalities or used alone, PDO will increase collagen more effectively than any other physiologic simulators including dermal fillers, chemical peels, laser treatments, vitamins, etc., hence termed the non-surgical facelift.
PDO is a synthetic suture (made of a strong monofilament) that is completely and naturally absorbed by the body by approximately month 6. It is considered a safe and hypoallergenic medical device and has recently received its FDA clearance and is now approved in medical aesthetic facial rejuvenation.
Novathreads are a brand of needles that are preloaded with a PDO thread. The whole needle is inserted into the interstitial tissue at the subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skyn, & then removed leaving the PDO thread, no cuts or incisions.
Meshing & Lifting
A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-shape.” With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-shape” gets lost. The idea behind the Nu-Mesh and the Nu-Lift technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or where necessary to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skyn to recreate the “V-shape” where it’s been lost.
Neck / Jaw Lift!
Although PDO can be inserted / injected almost anywhere, one particular area that was missing a Non-Surgical procedure is the area of the Jaw & the Neck.
