Dr. Miller loves learning about new treatments and and techniques. This month she is training in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida at the Esthetic Skin Institute. NovaThreads are an FDA approved mecical device. The NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. The PDO thread remains under the skin where is stimulates collagen synthesis. They can be inserted almost anywhere; they are wonderful for the jaw and the neck where dermal fillers are not as effective.
Thread Lift or PDO (Polydioxanone) is a newly refined technique offering a subtle and natural looking skin lift which also generates collagen and elastin over the course of about 8 months, with the effects typically lasting 2 years.
Patients also see increased skin rejuvenation, skin lifting, brightened skin tone, toning of the skin, increase in volume, and an improvement in skin wrinkles. The procedure is minimally invasive with no scarring and requires little to no downtime.
Thread Lifting is not new; its roots date back to the early 1990’s. What is new are the types of threads used today. PDO (Polydioxanone) Absorbable Threads are a strong synthetic monofilament fiber which dissolves in tissue after approximately 6 months. Polydioxanone sutures have been used in surgery for more than 30 years.
PDO Lifting Threads can be used in many areas of the face and body. It is considered a safe and hypoallergenic medical device. In combination with our other services this is an exciting development! Want more information about this great new treatment? Check out NovaThreads website
