PDO Threads

 Nova MedSpa in Ankeny and Dubuque IA is proud to provide PDO Threads as a safe and effective alternative to surgical procedures for sagging skin. Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO Threads can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.


 MINT™ (Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread) is an absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) barbed suture indicated for use in soft tissue approximation. PDO threads have drastically gained popularity in the medical aesthetic field to lift sagging skin, promote collagen production, or as an alternative to surgical procedures. As a safe raw material that is completely absorbed by the body through hydrolysis, PDO causes minimal tissue reaction and tissue trauma. The body absorbs PDO threads in 6-8 months after insertion, but results can last for up to one year.

MINT™ PDO threads do not require general anesthesia nor big incisions. There are tiny winged sutures placed and molded all around the thread. Once the threads are placed into the skin, they anchor onto loose skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look/lift.
