How Do NovaThreads Work?

Are you starting to notice sagging skin around your cheeks and jawline? Have you lost some volume in your face, and as a result, the areas under your eyes and around your nose look older? If that’s the case, you may be a good candidate for a NovaThread PDO Thread Lift. This cosmetic procedure is an excellent choice for people who may not yet be candidates for facelift surgery, but could still benefit from skin rejuvenation.

Want to learn more about NovaThreads, including how the treatment works? Let’s take a look!

What Are NovaThreads and How Does It Work?

NovaThreads are surgical sutures that are preloaded into syringes, which are then injected into specific facial regions.

Before we dive into the treatment itself, let’s take a closer look at these sutures and why they’re used in this procedure.

The surgical sutures dissolve on their own naturally, meaning once they’ve been administered to sagging facial areas, there’s no need to manually remove them. As the sutures dissolve, they increase the body’s collagen production, leading to long-term benefits you’ll see for a year or more after your procedure.

So let’s take a closer look at how the actual procedure works.

During your NovaThread PDO Thread Lift, the surgical sutures are injected into facial areas where sagging is most prominent (for example, under the cheeks, around the nose and mouth, and more). These threads provide instant lift and tightening benefits, meaning you could erase years off of your appearance in the span of an hour-long treatment.

Benefits of a NovaThread 

  • The treatment doesn’t require any surgery, meaning you don’t have to deal with the unpleasant side effects of general anesthesia. That also means downtime and recovery are relatively quick.
  • The procedure takes less than an hour, making it a highly convenient procedure for busy people./li>
  • Results look natural and complementary – no need to worry about looking overdone or artificial.
  •  Your treatment can be combined with other procedures for your best results possible (more on this in a bit)

Who is a Good Candidate for a NovaThread

The best candidates for a NovaThread PDO Thread Lift are people who have mild to moderate signs of skin sagging, especially around the nose, mouth, and jawline. Those individuals with severe sagging may see better results with traditional facelift surgery.

Combing Your NovaThread with Other Treatments

One of the biggest benefits of a NovaThread PDO Thread Lift is that it can be combined with other treatments to achieve your best, most youthful results. 

For example, you can include dermal fillers, Botox, laser skin resurfacing, or any other rejuvenating treatments to help get your dream skin. Your dermatologist can help you select and schedule those additional treatments based on your desired results.

WOW! I went into my appointment with a negitive attitude. I have all of my cosmetic procedures done in Europe and have very high standards. Even though I came across skeptical, I was treated with patience and respect. I had PRP and Botox and am so impressed with the quality and results. It is so nice to have a doctor that knows what he’s doing!

Thank you!!!!!

DD, Happy Patient
