What Are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads are hypodermic needles preloaded with synthetic PDO (polydioxanone) absorbable sutures that instantly lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck. NovaThreads counteract skin laxity, produce collagen and improve overall skin texture for a more youthful appearance.
As we age, skin elasticity, volume and thickness begin to diminish causing the skin tissues to deepen and sag. NovaThreads will provide the skin with a fresh, well-rested and firmer look while simultaneously supporting new collagen formation for long-lasting results without surgery or creating scar tissue.
NovaThreads: PDO absorbable sutures
NovaThreads contain Polydioxanone, an absorbable material commonly used is cardiothoracic surgery. This material is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and does not create any scar tissue. The absorbable suture stimulates natural production of collagen in the skin and will hold for another 12 to 15 months.
NovaThreads can be used to:
- Lift and smooth jowls
- Elevate sagging cheeks
- Lift drooping brow lines
- Tighten and lift skin along the neck
- Lessen creases around the mouth and nose
NovaThreads offer a rejuvenating solution that will bring you the natural lift you desire. Once the sutures are placed, they will immediately construct collagen along those areas, returning the elasticity and firmness for a more youthful appearance.
Prior to the treatment, the targeted areas will be numbed with topical and local anesthetic. The NovaThreads are then injected under the skin to reposition these areas without cutting or incisions. Depending on the desired lift, few to several absorbable sutures may be placed. The PDO sutures remain under the skin and immediately stimulate natural production of collagen.
Am I a candidate for NovaThreads?
NovaThreads will provide a natural lift to the face and neck without surgery or downtime. Ideal candidates will have minimal signs of aging but desire a minor lift without the desire to undergo a surgical procedure.
What is the recovery for NovaThreads like?
There is no downtime associated with NovaThreads. Because the treatment is minimally invasive, patients can typically return to normal activity immediately. Minimal, short-term side effects include, swelling, bruising, and tenderness.
What kind of results should be expected from NovaThreads?
Once the absorbable sutures are inserted, you will notice a natural lift in the skin and immediately produce collagen for months after the treatment. This combination of sutures and collagen can create results for up to 15 months.
