One of the most prominent signs of aging is sagging, drooping skin that occurs all over the body. It appears when our increasingly fragile skin gradually loses collagen, which then causes the skin to lose elasticity and firmness. While there are countless anti-aging treatments on the market, there aren’t many treatments that lift sagging skin without having to use invasive surgery. With the arrival of NovaThreads®, patients now have a minimally invasive thread lift option for lifting and tightening the skin.
NovaThreads® lifts skin using re-absorbable sutures that are implanted under the skin. The sutures don’t just physically tighten and lift sagging skin, rather, their material encourages further collagen production in the skin for an additional lifting effect.
NovaThreads® can lift skin on the lower face, jawline, and neck, which are common areas of concern. Thanks to NovaThreads®, patients can now experience natural, subtle rejuvenation without having to worry about surgery.
The Science of NovaThreads®
NovaThreads® are composed of a material called Polydioxanone, also known as PDO. Used more commonly for medical applications, PDO is fully absorbable by the body and doesn’t create scar tissue. It’s administered by needles that are pre-loaded with the PDO thread, which are then inserted into the treatment area parallel to the surface of the skin. The needles are pulled out while the threads stay in place. It’s as simple as that.
Once the sutures are inserted, your body reacts to their presence by triggering your skin’s healing mechanisms. Your production of collagen increases, and your skin will naturally lift and heal itself for months after NovaThreads® application. The combination of the collagen synthesis and the absorbable sutures creates results that last up to an impressive 12-15 months.
Because a thread lift is minimally invasive, most patients don’t need downtime or recovery after NovaThreads®. In fact, they can usually return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure. Some patients do experience mild side effects like bruising, swelling, tenderness, and small amounts of bleeding. More serious side effects like migration or the threads become visible are quite rare. NovaThreads® can be reversed and are removable.
