NovaThreads, the Face-Lift alternative fills wrinkles + slightly lifts the skin. As a result of the PDO being absorbed, the skin naturally produces collagen.
What are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads are FDA-cleared, absorbable sutures placed under the facial skin during a thread lift procedure, to physically lift the interstitial tissue and enhance collagen production. They work especially well to tighten skin on the neck, lower and midface, and jawline, to restore the face’s youthful V-shape. Thread lifts can also be placed in the corners of the lips to turn out the lip line, and above the eyes to create a subtle brow lift.
The threads are made of a synthetic biodegradable material called PDO (polydioxanone), which are also used in absorbable surgical sutures. NovaThreads consist of hypodermic needles, preloaded with these PDO sutures. The needles are inserted into the skin, parallel to the surface, and leave the thread behind when they’re pulled out.
The PDO sutures dissolve over time, allowing new collagen to grow in their place. Skin is lifted immediately, and overtime skin firmness and elasticity increases in the treated area.
What are the benefits of NovaThreads?
This facial rejuvenation procedure is relatively quick and easy. Each PDO thread is inserted in less than a minute through small injections performed by our registered nurse and National PDO thread trainer.
NovaThreads provide an immediate result, with the skin being instantly lifted, and improvements in firmness for up to a year as new collagen develops.
Unlike other PDO threads, NovaThreads are dissolvable and therefore less risky than permanent sutures inserted in thread lifts and won’t attract infection-causing bacteria and leave scar tissue.
If you are looking for alternatives to surgical or laser procedures, NovaThread Lifts are a great non-invasive option, and provide immediate results with little to no downtime.
What happens during a NovaThreads procedure?
Your practitioner will start by numbing the treated area so that the procedure will be comfortable.
SKINNEY Medspa uses the NuMesh technique for placing NovaThreads.
The NuMesh approach creates a mesh-like scaffolding under the skin. Two smooth PDO sutures are placed vertically and horizontally, on each side of your face. The threads boost collagen production as your body tries to heal around the foreign material, leading to increased skin firmness.
What areas can I treat with NovaThreads?
NovaThreads can be safely placed in the forehead, glabella, temples, brows, under-eye, cheeks, lips, upper lip, crows feet, marionette folds, nasolabial folds, necklace lines, neck, and body to provide a lift to the skin.
What should you expect afterward?
Thread lifts come with little to no downtime. You may experience swelling bruising, or redness for a few days post treatment. Typically any side effects are minimal enough that you can return to work the following day.
How long do NovaThreads last?
NovaThreads dissolve naturally over four to six months, but improved fullness and firmness due to new collagen can last over a year. For best results, your practitioner may recommend a series of 3-5 NovaThread sessions spaced 1-2 months apart. We recommend scheduling a follow up appointment 1 month post treatment to take before and after photos, and review results.
