PDO ABSORBABLE SUTURE

It's a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. 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 it within 4 to 6 months & won't leave you with any scar tissue.

How it Works

In medical terms "Selective Inflammatory Response", it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & 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!
