PDO Threads Q & A

What Are PDO Threads?

Nova Thread PDO (polydioxanone) sutures are an extremely safe absorbable material that have been used extensively in Cardio-thoracic, OB-Gyn, Trauma and Plastic surgery for years.

PDO sutures has been used extensively in Cardio-thoracic, Plastic, OB-Gyn and Trauma surgeries for over 30 years and excels in being elastic and strong.

Best of all this suture is a powerful collagen stimulant that acts to thicken the skin or lessen a wrinkle while the suture itself is degraded by the body’s immune system.

It is this new collagen which provides long-lasting lift or skin thickening which can remain in effect 12 – 15 months.

The Two Nova Thread Types:

  1. Smooth threads: These are utilized for collagen stimulation and cause firming and thickening of the skin. They are often placed in a ‘net-like’ or mesh pattern and are beneficial in treating thin crepey skin of the face, neck or décolleté. They are also used for superficial wrinkles of the forehead, glabella, cheeks, smoker’s lines, marionette lines or lines in the neck. Dr. Anita particularly likes the effect on the lip lines of the upper lip when used in combination with a neurotoxin.
  2. Twisted threads: These are smooth threads which have been coiled. This feature results in more collagen production. These threads are used in the nasolabial folds and marionette areas but also in lips for subtle vermilion border definition and volume.
