PDO Threads in Scottsboro, AL
Real Patients *
I was interested in having the Nova Threads in my neck. I found Dr Bigelow doing a Google search and she had several videos on YouTube about herself and her facility. After watching them, I decided to drive from Anniston to have my procedures done by Dr Bigelow. I’m over 40 and talked with Dr [...]
Dr. Bigelow has been my “please keep me looking young” doctor for 20 years…now, as I approach 50, I look essentially the same as I did in my early thirties. ( Let’s just say closer to 50 than 40). For me, ‘best offense has been great defense’. Dr. Bigelow has always taken time to educate [...]
“I’m arrived early and was immediately taken to an exam room. The nurse completed the new patient paperwork for me expeditiously and in a pleasant manner. Dr Tuesday arrived promptly and completed a thorough assessment and discussed options she recommended. She was very receptive to my desires and provided explicit explanations. Overall, the visit was [...]
PDO Threads Introduction
PDO threads are used in a face lift which is often referred to as the “lunch hour lift”. Dr. Tuesday makes a tiny entry so she can insert fine PDO threads into the areas are wanted to be lifted. As the threads dissolve, your body will naturally produce new bundles of collagen which surround each thread. Using PDO threads along with facial fillers typically produce the best results. The results give you a rejuvenated and refreshed look. No surgery, no pain, and non-invasive. Natural results with no scaring and recovery times are minimal.

Give yourself the gift of timeless beauty through a Rejuvn8 Lift™
The Rejuvn8 Lift™ is a non-surgical aesthetic procedure that repositions and “lifts” static sagging skin. In less than one hour, we can turn back time and transform your look with virtually no down time. Restore your youthful look, reflect how you feel inside, and be confident with the the Rejuvn8 Lift™.
Rejuvn8 Lift™ is relatively new form of non-surgical facelift. There are no cuts and no incisions. Using a very fine acupuncture needle, special dissolvable threads made of polydioxanone (PDO) are injected into the skin, and sometimes the muscle, to tighten the skin. PDO threads have been used in medicine for many years, mainly for surgery. PDO sutures have been used for Pediatric Cardiac surgery for over 35 years.
The PDO threads have a powerful dual effect. The first is to give an immediate lifting effect. The second is to stimulate your body’s own collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. A lift appearance can be seen immediately follow the treatment; however, the results will improve in the following days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which in turn produces collagen. The overall texture of the skin is improved; it becomes thicker, tighter and firmer and other skin issues like open pores, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away as well.

How Do PDO Threads Work?
It’s an easy 2 step procedure.
No scalpel, no anesthesia (numbing cream recommended) and no downtime.

Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting PDO Threads we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally! The material of the thread is fully absorbed within 4-6 months and doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for another 12-15 months.
PDO Threads Treatment Areas
Although PDO Threads can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
PDO Threads Before and After
What to Expect
A thread facelift is a convenient, less invasive alternative to traditional facelifts, designed for people experiencing early signs of aging, such as minor facial sagging. This innovative facelift procedure can be performed in just one or two hours, often without anesthesia. During a thread facelift, the cosmetic surgeon inserts thin threads into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads attach to the skin tissue and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Treated areas will be raised slightly, eliminating sagging and giving patients a rejuvenated appearance. Because patients usually remain fully conscious during the procedure, they can approve the look of their thread lift while the surgeon works. Once the threads are knotted, they become hidden within the skin itself.
