What Are PDO Threads/NovaThreads?
Does your skin sag or look loose? PDO Threads prompt the body to naturally increase the creation of collagen in the body to bring about “controlled healing” using a non-surgical treatment made of completely absorbable sutures containing polydioxanone (PDO). This procedure has been proven to work both effectively and safely as these very sutures have been in practice for over 60 years during cardiac surgeries. As the sutures dissolve, your skin will become tighter and repair itself leading to a minimally invasive treatment with results lasting up to a year!
The PDO Threads Procedure
Four to six months following treatment, your NovaThreads will begin to steadily dissolve. Results will be apparent for up to twelve months post-treatment, even longer in most cases.
Other Areas That PDO Threads Can Treat Include:
Lifting the Arms
Lifting the Buttocks
Lifting the Breasts
Lifting the skin under the eyes
Lifting the knees
Nose and surrounding areas
How Long Do Effects Last For?
Four to six months following treatment, your NovaThreads will begin to steadily dissolve. Results will be apparent for upto twelve months post-treatment.
Before Your NovaThreads Procedure
One Week Before Treatment At True Jewel Cosmetic Center
Do not take blood-thinning medications of any kind, over-the-counter or not, to avoid complications during your treatment. This includes refraining from taking Motrin, Aleve, Aspirin, and Ibuprofen as well as certain supplements like omega-3, vitamin E, and garlic.
To lessen the possibility of swelling or bruising, some patients have found arnica capsules/cream and pineapple (fruit form or juice) to be effective.
