Face threading is once again a hot trend in facial rejuvenation, thanks to new and improved alternatives such as NovaThreads. NovaThreads is a safe, minimally invasive procedure that can tighten the skin without surgery, scars, or downtime. But how long does it take to see results from NovaThreads for skin tightening.

What is NovaThreads?
NovaThreads is an FDA approved procedure that lifts and tightens the skin using absorbable PDO sutures. PDO sutures are surgical sutures that are comprised of a biodegradable substance known as polydioxanone.

How it works
Small needles are first pre-filled with the PDO sutures. The needles are inserted under the skin and then pulled out, leaving the sutures behind. Treatment typically takes 30 minutes.

NovaThreads are fully absorbed by the body within 4-6 months. During this time the skin continuously repairs itself as the sutures stimulate the production of collagen, which helps make the skin plumper and tighter.

How long does it take to see results?
Improvements can be seen immediately after treatment, as the sutures work below the skin to lift the soft tissues. Improvements will be seen for several weeks, as the body’s natural healing process continues, and new collagen forms. The results can last anywhere from 12-18 months.

NovaThreads can be used on most areas on the face for facial rejuvenation, but the procedure is especially beneficial for the lower half of the face and neck. It can lift sagging cheeks and jowls, and improve smile lines and smoker’s lines.
