Total Med offers three different types of PDO NovaThreads. These threads can all be combined to provide you a personalized result of both lifting and rejuvenating the skin on your face and neck.
Barb Threads – these may sound scary, but they are simply PDO NovaThreads that have tiny notches or barbs which catch the under surface of the skin and when pulled upward, lifts the skin. Not only does this suture lift, enhancing the contour of the area, but it also induces collagen formation which adds more support and volume over time. Barbs threads are used for lifting cheeks, jawline (jowls), eyebrows and the neck area.
Smooth Threads – these are straight and Smooth threads that are often placed in a “net-like” or mesh pattern to help stimulate collagen where wrinkles and skin laxity are present. Smooth threads are beneficial in treating crepey skin of the face, neck or décolleté. They are also used for superficial wrinkles of the forehead, glabella, cheeks, smoker’s lines, marionette lines or lines in the neck. Additionally, Smooth threads can be used to help define lip borders.
Twist Threads – these are simply Smooth threads which have been coiled. When threaded under the skin, they help stimulate collagen and provide volume restoration to sunken areas of the face. Twist threads are used for improving frown lines, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, lips and tear troughs (crease under the eyes)
