NovaThreads Non-Invasive Alternative Face Lift
If you have considered getting a facelift, but are weary to go under the knife, consider the revolutionary NovaThreads facelift alternative. The minimally invasive procedure which uses absorbable PDO sutures to tighten the skin and lift areas of the face and neck, promotes natural collagen production, rebuilding stores as the skin heals. The result: natural-looking, dramatic rejuvenation.
NovaThreads is the choice facelift alternative for you if you’re suffering from:
NovaThreads is one of the most cutting-edge medical aesthetic procedures in the field today. It is designed to help restore the natural and youthful “V” shape of the face, while lifting sagging tissues and skin, and stimulating collagen production naturally. The procedure is performed in our office with minimal discomfort, pain or side effects. For those using Botox and/or Dysport fillers, NovaThreads is a great enhancement option.
What are PDO Threads?
Polydioxanone (PDO) is used for biomedical applications, specifically for cardiothoracic surgery because it can be fully absorbed by hydrolysis – a chemical process by which the body can absorb or dissolve a foreign body when it interacts with water. With NovaThreads, the PDO sutures are absorbed within 4 to 6 months following the procedure.
How does it work?
The PDO sutures are implanted under the skin using a preloaded needle injector. As the PDO sutures are getting absorbed, the skin enters a period of “controlled healing.” During this process, the body naturally produces collagen around the sutures under the skin, providing a youthful, lifted appearance that lasts 12 to 15 months.
Does the procedure work?
Yes! NovaThreads results are visible immediately, but the full benefits are realized within a few weeks after the procedure when collagen production is at its highest. Over this period of time, the skin takes on a smoother, tighter, and supple appearance with no visible scarring.
How long does it take?
The procedure is minimally-invasive and requires only local anesthesia. Once the area is numb, it takes about 30 minutes to place the sutures. Most patients return to the daily activities and/or work the same-day.
When will I see results?
Patients will see results immediately. However, the full benefits are seen within the weeks following the procedure as collagen synthesis takes place over the course of 4-6 months.
How long does it last?
Patients should expect to come back annually for a preservation treatment, within 12-15 months following their initial NovaThreads procedure.
Are there any side effects?
NovaThreads requires little to no downtime, as it is non-surgical and non-invasive. Common side effects include slight discomfort, soreness, redness, and bruising.
