NovaThreads Non-Surgical Facelift
Want a face lift without the surgery? Try the brand new, FDA approved, NovaThread Lift. NovaThreads are injectables which contain PDO threads or sutures, which are used to stretch and re-position the face. For many clients, this is a better alternative than surgery. This is because there is little to no downtime and recovery is quick; PDO threads absorb into face and also promote collagen production.
Although NOVATHREADS can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
What are NovaThreads, Exactly?
NovaThreads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic PDO absorbable suture. PDO (polydioxanone) sutures are surgical sutures that are used to perform cardiac surgery. All sutures are FDA-approved and PDO sutures are one of the safest materials that can be used in the body. Your skin will fully absorb the Novathread within 4 to 6 months without leaving any scar tissue.
While the sutures are underneath the skin, however, your skin gently reacts to the skin creating a “selective inflammatory response” to produce collagen to create a longer-lasting result: This principle is behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as fractioned lasers, skin tightening treatments and microneedling). Our skin is excellent at repairing itself, and by inserting the Novathreads underneath the skin to lift the loose skin, the skin will heal itself by creating new collagen naturally!
How do NovaThreads work?
The Pre-loaded PDO sutures are strategically administered in a cross-hatch pattern underneath the skin to provide a strong foundation for skin improvement. This treatment option combats visible signs of aging in two major ways:
• Immediate lifting: Fine lines and wrinkles are immediately lifted and smoothed for rejuvenation that is instantly visible
•Increased collagen production: Over the course of 4 to 6 months, the skin’s healing response grows around the sutures for stronger, more flexible skin after the sutures are absorbed by the body.
What are the best uses for NovaThreads®?
The most effective results are in the mid-and lower-face. For example the small folds in the corner of the mouth and the jowl are areas where the NovaThreads do an excellent lifting and re-draping of the tissues resulting in a smoother jaw line and addressing those real tricky corners in the fold of the mouth. NovaThreads can be used to treat:
• Severe Wrinkles
• Saggy cheeks
• Smile lines and smoker’s lines
• Eyebrow sagging
• Neck and Décolletage
• Arm tightening
• Thigh lift
• Butt Lift
