PDO Threads


Two of the most common signs of aging are sagging skin and wrinkling, both resulting from a gradual decline in collagen production. Collagen, a key protein in the skin, helps keep our skin looking youthful and healthy. With inadequate collagen production, it becomes difficult for our skin to remain flexible, causing sagging along the neck and jawlines. If sagging or wrinkling is causing you to feel self-conscious about your image, Nuance Aesthetics offers NovaThreads as a safe and effective means of lifting the skin.

PDO Thread Faqs

NovaThreads contain absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) sutures that can be used to lift the skin for a younger complexion. NovaThreads are often used for cardiothoracic surgery and have been recognized by medical professionals as one of the safest materials to be embedded into the body. The NovaThreads themselves are absorbable hypodermic needles that contain PDO sutures.
PDO thread lifting with NovaThreads may be the right treatment for you if you look for a safe, effective, non-surgical, and non-invasive way to lift sagging skin. Our experienced team will help you determine if this treatment is right for you during your consultation.
While our skin works well to repair itself, aging can affect the body’s self-reparative properties. As NovaThreads are implanted into the designated treatment area, they will stimulate the production of collagen to enhance the body’s healing process. 

Once collagen levels are raised, they will work to correct wrinkling and sagging skin found on the jawline and neck.
It typically takes between 4 and 6 months for the body to absorb NovaThreads.
A PDO thread lift recovery period lasts 2-4 weeks. During this time, you may experience temporary soreness or swelling; it is normal and will subside. Your skin should return back to normal within a week after receiving the treatment if you experience any adverse reactions.
Thread lifts are most suitable for patients with mild to moderate skin laxity signs rather than severe signs. A thread lift candidate is usually in their late thirties to early fifties, whereas patients over 55 will benefit more from a surgical facelift.
PDO Threads are noninvasive alternatives to surgery. Using this technique, individuals can look younger by lifting, tucking, and contouring their facial skin. In order to lift the sagging skin around the jowls and define the jawline, PDO threads are an excellent choice.
The fibers in PDO dissolve within six months and are fully absorbed into the body. The results of this treatment will be healthy skin for many years.
There are two types of PDO threads: non-barbed and barbed: Non-barbed threads can either be smooth or braided. A non-barbed thread is most commonly used to reduce wrinkles and lines on the face. The barbed threads are thicker. Unlike non-barbed threads, the barbs hook into the tissue under the skin. An inserted barbed thread acts as an umbrella to support tissues that are sagging.
Yes! PDO Thread treatments are a great way to restore your skin’s youthful appearance. The PDO Thread treatment is a safe and effective method for reducing wrinkles and eye concerns such as dark circles and tired-looking eyes. It takes just 6-8 weeks to see results.

Our Testimonials

5.0Diana H.Diana H. ★★★★★ I'm extremely happy with my visit to Nuance Aesthetics! Jessica was very welcoming when you first step in. I met Dr. Gohar for help to do some lip filler correction and I'm so pleased with my lips now! She's so knowledgeable, kind, and truly took the time and care to talk through a plan with me. She took before and after pictures and determined the best kind of filler to use for my age, which I'm thankful for since that's not my expertise. My first experience of lip filler at another place left me feeling like it was done in a rush and dissolved pretty quickly and unevenly, so I wanted to find a business that would make me feel confident in what the end result would look like and Nuance Aesthetics was that place! The MD also drops in to check with you, which I think is awesome. Overall, 10/10. I would recommend!Paula N.Paula N. ★★★★★ My husband and I live in Florida and visit and have been treated by Nuance for a few years. From enterance to exit the office , Jessica, Jill, Dr Gohan and Dr Rhudy are all skilled, knowledgable, warm, and friendly. We get excellent treatment. Thank you Nuance!Julie C.Julie C. ★★★★★ Jessica is just wonderful. Every time I go in, Jessica greets me with a smile and is always helpful and pleasant to talk with.

From the start, Jess was prompt in following up with my online request and helped me book an appointment with Gohar.Let me just say that Gohar felt like a long lost sister!

I love this place and will be going there from now on for all of my procedures.Jodee W.Jodee W. ★★★★★ First visit to Nuance exceeded my expectations! Kaira and Katie were both so knowledgeable about their products and so welcoming. They were able to walk me through the procedure and calm my nerves. The results have been just as phenomenal!

From the moment I stepped through the door, Jessica's warm and welcoming demeanor immediately put me at ease. She sensed my apprehension and skillfully conveyed my concerns to Ashley, which I found incredibly reassuring.Ashley, on the other hand, was an absolute delight. She took the time to thoroughly explain each step of the process, ensuring I felt fully informed. Notably, she did not push for excessive treatments initially and even thoughtfully discussed potential future areas of interest.Johanna K.Johanna K. ★★★★★ Katie is wonderful and I’ve trusted her with my face for years. I love how she has the approach to not overtreat but instead start slow, see results in a few weeks and then add as/if needed. Highly recommend!Blanca M.Blanca M. ★★★★★ I enjoyed the service.
