How it works

PDO threads are medical-grade surgical suture made of polydioxanone. In fact, PDO threads in St. Louis are so safe they’re even used during open heart surgery. That means you get an effective, yet extremely safe procedure to lift and tighten your skin.

Lift and tighten

Using the Novathread needle, we insert the PDO threads directly under the skin. They work as a natural framework for your skin.


Within 4 to 6 months, your skin will absorb the threads, boosting the healing process and promoting collagen production. Even after the threads dissolve, the new collagen will continue fighting against signs of aging for long-lasting results.
