Polydioxanone is used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery because it is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months & doesn't create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis & the skin structure created will hold for another 12 to 15 months.
NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Simply insert the whole needle into the interstitial tissue at the subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin & pull the needle out. The PDO thread remains under the skin.
A beautiful and healthy face has a "V-shape". With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this "V-shape" gets lost. The idea behind the Nova-Mesh and the Nova-Lift technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the "V-shape", or where necessary, to delicately Lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the "V-shape" where it’s been lost.
Although NOVATHREADS can be inserted / injected almost anywhere, one particular area that was missing a non-surgical procedure is the area of the Jaw & the Neck.
EZ-NECK MESH is an easy and effective technique for creating a scaffold that will provide support and tighten the sagging tissues. NovaThreads Smooths are most commonly used for this kind of procedure. More difficult cases may require the use of NovaThreads Barbs to create a Lift (EZ-NECK Lift).
EZ-LIPS FILL allows for quick and impressive results in redefining the vermilion border. It's a lot easier than injecting a filler, as you have 100% certainty of applying an equal amount of product on each side of the lip. The results are immediate and last for about 3 months. The procedure is usually performed with NovaThreads Smooths. However, when looking for a more noticeable increase of volume, the NovaThreads Twists are recommended.
The EZ-JAW Lift is used to recreate the V-shape of the face when the EZ-CHEEK MESH alone is not enough. In these cases, the NovaThreads Barbs are necessary to reposition the skin and create a subtle & delicate lift that will greatly enhance the general appearance of the whole face.
