PDO Nova Threads
PDO Nova Threads can subtly lift drooping skin and promote long-term improvements in the health and appearance of your skin. At Harpe Laser & Wellness, we perform PDO Nova Threads for Asheville patients who want to tighten and lift skin on the midface, lower face, jawline, and neck.
What Are PDO Nova Threads?
PDO Nova Threads are used for cosmetic thread lifting procedures, such as a non-surgical facelift or neck lift. Made from absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) threads, PDO Nova Threads can temporarily lift tissue without causing scarring.
The PDO threads dissolve over a course of four to six months. As the threads are absorbed, new collagen is produced by the body to take their place. Increased collagen production helps to create firmer, more youthful skin in the treatment area.
PDO Nova Threads can be ideal for patients who want a minimally invasive solution for:
- Marionette lines
- The nasolabial folds
- Laugh lines
- Skin laxity along the jawline
- Drooping and ill-defined lip contours
- Other signs of aging
Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Treatment with PDO Nova Threads?
Healthy adults with mild to moderate skin laxity in the face and neck areas are often good candidates for PDO Nova Threads. Patients with more considerable sagging and drooping of the facial tissues are typically better candidates for a more aggressive intervention, such as a surgical facelift or neck lift.
To determine if PDO Nova Threads is right for you, you will need to meet with a member of our expert team for a consultation. The consultation provides an opportunity to evaluate your cosmetic concerns, assess your facial tissue and structure, and learn about your goals for treatment. We can then formulate the ideal approach to rejuvenating your facial appearance.
What Happens During a PDO Nova Threads Procedure?
In most cases, a PDO Nova Threads procedure takes an hour or less. Local anesthesia will be used to ensure your comfort while the threads are being placed.
Based on your cosmetic concerns and your unique skin, barbed PDO threads or smooth PDO threads may be used. The threads are pre-loaded into specialized needles so they can be placed precisely under the surface of the skin as needed to lift, smooth, and tighten the skin.
PDO Nova Threads Results
Many patients notice an instant lifting effect that can last up to six months. Gradual improvements in the firmness of the skin can also be expected for up to a year as a result of enhanced collagen production.
Periodic retreatment with PDO Nova Threads will be needed to maintain your more youthful facial appearance. Dermal fillers, laser skin treatments, and/or medical facials may also be recommended to enhance your PDO Nova Threads results.
How Much Does a PDO Nova Threads Procedure Cost?
PDO Nova Threads treatments are customized to address each patient’s unique skin and aesthetic goals. The price of your PDO Nova Threads procedure will be determined by the complexity of your thread lifting treatment and the number of threads needed to achieve optimal results.
