Are Thread Lifts Safe?
Yes, PDO Threads are completely safe and have been FDA-Approved. The NovaThread material has been used for years in dissolving sutures, and the cosmetic applications described in this page have been used for years in Europe with great success. Threads should completely dissolve within 6 months following their insertion, leaving behind new collagen in their place.
Many years ago, permanent sutures were used to lift the face and neck. These thread lifts lost FDA-Approval because the permanent nature of these procedures caused problems in the long term. Nova PDO Threads are completely dissolvable and reversible, making them a safe alternative.
