Frequently Asked Questions
They are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture.
It's a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydiaxanone (PDO). 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 within 4 to 6 months and won't leave you with any scar tissue.
In medical terms "selective inflammatory response", it is the principle behind alot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels and MicroNeedling). Our 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. It's "controlled healing" happening underneath the skin.
The NovaThreads are needles that are preloaded with a PDO thread. We simply insert the whole needle in the interstitial tissue at the subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, and pull the needle out. The PDO Thread remains under the skin.
