NovaThreads are absorbable threads that are composed of polydioxanone or PDO-absorbable sutures. These synthetic sutures feature many shapes that encourage tissue lifting and collagen stimulation. The procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive, eliminating the need for incisions and the risk of scarring. Novathreads are incredibly safe, and the body naturally absorbs the suture within 4-6 months. However, the benefits of PDO threads have been known to last roughly 9-12 months.
NovaThreads works in various ways, providing immediate and long-acting facial rejuvenation. Most will notice an instant improvement once the threads are placed, creating skin tightening that uniquely lifts your skin.
Anyone who wants to decrease or prevent the loss of collagen or wishes to reduce signs of aging is a good candidate. This procedure can help reduce wrinkles and create a natural lift.
First, we offer a complimentary consultation to discuss your concerns and your beauty goals. Because everyone's facial structure is different and the placement of the threads depends on your unique needs, we will develop a custom treatment plan together.
During treatment, you may experience some minor discomfort. We typically put a topical numbing agent on the skin before treatment to minimize discomfort.
The procedure typically takes about 30-60 minutes and doesn't require significant downtime for recovery. Some patients can experience minor bruising, swelling, or redness at the injection site but can usually be camouflaged with makeup.
