What is Microneedling

At the Idaho Skin Institute, we are always striving to stay up to date and educate ourselves with the most up to date non surgical cosmetic dermatology procedures. We offer a variety of non surgical medical procedures to fit your individual needs. 

Microneedling with PRP

It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardio thoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.

Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads. In medical terms "Selective Inflammatory Response", it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & MicroNeedling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NOVATHREADS we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally!

Yes, PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it. It’s "controlled healing" happening underneath the skin!
