Would you like to tighten sagging skin on your face and neck, without going under the knife? A thread lift with Nova Threads may be the facial rejuvenation treatment you’re looking for.
What are Nova Threads?
Nova Threads are small dissolvable sutures that are used to perform a thread lift. A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that can tighten loose, sagging skin on the face, neck, and body.
Nova Threads are made from polydioxanone (PDO), which is a biodegradable material that can provide well-needed support for sagging skin. PDO threads are safe, medical-grade threads that have been used extensively in surgical procedures for many years.
What happens during a thread lift?
During a thread lift, the Nova Threads are introduced below the skin using a fine needle, and are left behind when the needle is removed. The threads provide support for the skin and lift it upward.
Nova Threads not only lift loose skin, but during the repair process they stimulate the production of natural collagen. Collagen is a protein that keeps the skin firm and supple, so infusing fresh, new collagen strengthens and hydrates the skin, and reduces skin laxity. The tissue rejuvenation process continues after the thread lift, and may last up to 3 months. The threads take about 4-6 months to fully absorb into the skin.
Thread lifts are performed under local anesthesia, and recovery takes a few days, as there is generally some swelling and bruising after the procedure (learn more).
