About PDO / NovaThreads

NovaThreads are fully-resorbable PDO threads that are quick, safe and easy to use

The original Absorbable PDO Threads

Introduced to the US in 2015, NovaThreads were the first Absorbable PDO threads of their kind. Using an absorbable material, Polydioxanone, they were quickly adopted by practitioners in the United States and still are their number one choice today.

Polydioxanone is used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery. It is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and doesn't create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for another 12 to 15 months.


NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Dr. Rachel simply inserts the whole suture in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, and pulls the needle out.

The PDO thread remains under the skin, producing a result such as a brow lift, jawline contouring, or reduction of marionette lines. Dr. Rachel may use PDO / NovaThreads in tandem with dermal fillers, Botox Cosmetic, and/or Kybella to achieve desired results for patients. 


Pricing for Threads: price per area enhanced by threads begins at $1050.
