Nova Threads

What are Nova Threads?

NovaThreads are a non-invasive treatment to help loose and sagging skin. A more detailed description is that they are absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone. These sutures have been used in cardiac surgeries for the past 60 years or more, and are the safest materials to be implanted in the body.

During the treatment, a preloaded needle is inserted into the skin. Your injector then leaves the thread beneath the skin when she removes the needle. Your skin gently reacts to the threads and begins repairing itself around the suture.


The threads can be expertly placed to stimulate collagen in areas of volume loss or fill a fold, and also can be placed to pull and tighten the skin, such as that of the neck or brows. Over the next 4-6 months, your skin fully absorbs the threads and they won’t leave behind scar tissue.

Long-term benefits

NovaThreads are a quick and easy way to get immediate results with long-term benefits:

  • Natural results
  • No surgery, no pain
  • Lunchtime procedure
  • Ideal for neck and jawline
  • NovaThreads can be used on their own as well as a great enhancement to fillers and Botox


How does it work?

Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads.
PDO is fully-absorbing, 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! 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!
