NovaThreads is an innovative skin-tightening treatment that uses PDO sutures to effectively lift key facial areas suffering from volume loss, like the cheeks, nasolabial folds, and jowls. This procedure can also effectively lift other areas of the body that have begun to sag. The NovaThreads procedure is an excellent solution for patients who may be concerned with skin sagging and want to see long-term lift and rejuvenation.
How does it work?
NovaThreads are comprised of PDO sutures, which is a dissolvable material that’s most often used with internal surgeries. These sutures are used to add instant lift to the lower part of the facial region, this restores the natural v-shape to the face. The sutures can also be used on other parts of the body, such as: lips, abdomen, and anywhere else with sagging skin.
As they dissolve, the sutures stimulate collagen production for facial rejuvenation and long-term lifting. The collagen begins to build around the dissolving sutures to maintain the lifted appearance. The dissolving process occurs over a period of 4 to 6 months. It is “controlled healing” happening below the surface of your skin. After this phase, due to the collagen production that the threads help to stimulate, the skin appears younger and smoother for the next 12 to 18 months.
Is NovaThreads Right For Me?
You’re a good candidate for NovaThreads if you have mild to moderate sagging on your face or body. Sagging skin on the body, deep nasolabial folds, sagging jowls, and loss of volume around the cheeks can be addressed with NovaThreads.
Is It Safe?
The NovaThreads procedure is safe and there are no adverse reactions. All healing happens underneath the skin, so you can return to your normal activities after the treatment. This procedure is effective for all skin types and colors.
How Long Does It Take To See Results?
Results are instant, as the PDO sutures are used to instantly lift key areas of the face. Optimal results are seen after minor swelling disappears and results can last between 12 to 18 months.
Do Treatments Hurt?
Most patients are comfortable during the procedure; however, a local anesthetic can be used to manage any discomfort.
