Physicians Tout New Lifting Threads for Facial Rejuvenation

Absorbable thread sutures for skin lifting and tightening are making a comeback in aesthetic practices. An example of this, NovaThreads from NovaThreads, Inc. (Miami, Fla.) offers Polydioxanone (PDO)-based threads that stimulate collagen synthesis via a minimally invasive procedure. Filmed live at THE Aesthetic Show, Aesthetic TV host Violet Kanian talks with Kian Karimi, M.D., F.A.C.S., and Anil Rajani, M.D., about how these threads work to lift and revitalize different body areas, including the face, neck and anywhere there is sagging skin or lost collagen.
