AVO Aesthetics PDO threads are the latest revolutionary treatment helping to firm and tighten skin, giving you a natural and youthful look. PDO threads originated in Korea, and have been a popular treatment for those who want tightening of the skin without surgical intervention.PDO threads can be used across various places of the face and body. They are the perfect choice for anyone looking to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance. Our Nova Threads are made from high quality polydioxanone (PDO) material, providing a safe and effective solution to reduce signs of aging. The threads are designed to gently lift sagging skin, reduce wrinkles, and stimulate collagen production, resulting in a smoother and more contoured facial appearance. Our PDO Smooth Threads are minimally invasive, have no downtime, and provide long-lasting results.





The PDO smooth threads involve the placement of smooth, absorbable threads underneath your skin. The threads contain polydioxanone (PDO) which is a biodegradable polymer that is slowly absorbed by your body over time. They are different to mechanical or barbed threads, which gather skin to produce a lifting action. Rather, by stimulating and accelerating your own collagen supplies, the threads provide more facial contouring and improve the quality of your skin to deliver a plumper and more youthful complexion. They can be performed as a full-face treatment or can be targeted to specific areas of the face such as brow, jawline or tear troughs, and also the neck.   

The threads are (the same material used in dissolvable sutures). They are a flexible and durable thread that is inserted into the face or body, stimulating the formation of collagen around the thread, giving support to the tissues, these strands are smooth, and made without barbs, they are not intended to lift the face, but address fine lines, and loss of volume. PDO threads can be used across various places on the face and body. The treatment will last about 30 - 60 minutes of treatment, depending on the area

Currently AVO Medical Aesthetics offers them in the face and neck region.
