A Thread Lift is a type of procedure wherein temporary sutures are used to produce a subtle but visible "lift" in the skin. This has the effect of pulling the skin back slightly and therefore lifting and tightening the face. The threads are made of a material called Polydioxanone (PDO). Polydioxanone (PDO) has been used for many years in surgery, because it is fully absorbed within 4 to 6 months and doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen production and the skin structure created with Nova Threads will hold for another 12 to 15 months. There are no cuts or incisions and the procedure is purely injection based much like other fillers.
