Get a Non-Surgical Facelift with NovaThreads

Dec 20, 2019 | Skin Care


As we age, the action of gravity weakens our facial structures and causes a loss in facial fat. The result is an older-looking face. In the past, people would look into surgery as the only way to lift loose facial skin and reduce signs of aging. Today, thanks to NovaThreads, there’s an effective non-surgical facelift option to restore, lift and contour sagging facial tissues.

What Are NovaThreads and How Do They Work?

NovaThreads are hypodermic needles loaded with polydioxanone (PDO), a medical-grade, absorbable material commonly used in internal surgical applications. The PDO sutures are FDA-approved, safe, and effective. When precisely threaded through the layers of skin, the PDO sutures tighten and lift facial structures by generating the production of new, healthy collagen. The collagen repairs, tightens, and smoothens the skin from inside. Also, the sutures immediately lift, secure, and reposition skin on the neck, face, and/or jawline.

The NovaThread sutures are dissolved over the next 4 to 6 months and fully absorbed into the skin, without leaving any kind of scarring. The new collagen remains to provide beautiful, long-lasting results. NovaThreads can treat sagging skin on/around the neck, eyes, cheeks, and jowls. The results of the NovaThread lift are immediate and become more noticeable after 1-2 weeks.

NovaThread Lift Options

The NovaThread lift can be performed using two different techniques, depending on whether you want subtle or more dramatic results:

Nu-Lift: Using sutures threaded with tiny barbs to gather tissue, the sutures are pulled in different directions to lift sagging skin where the threads are placed. This technique produces an immediate and more dramatic result. The production of new collagen will then secure the lift in place and give it a longer-lasting result.

Nu-Mesh: These threads are smooth and smaller than the barbed sutures. These sutures are implanted horizontally and vertically in a net to create a “mesh,” which is much like a hashtag sign. This mesh serves as the foundation for the production of new collagen. The Nu-Mesh technique is not meant to provide an immediate effect but offers less drastic, more natural improvement in the appearance of fine lines.
