SkinTrust is thrilled to offer NovaThreads, the new PDO absorbable Thread Lift procedure to our clients. NovaThreads safely and instantly lifts up loose skin on the face, neck and the body with minimal downtime.
For 10 years, the PDO absorbable thread lift has been performed in Asia and Europe, and is one of the most popular “lift” treatments. NovaThreads differs from other thread lifting alternatives because they are made from absorbable PDO sutures and can be reversed and removed unlike other threads. And, NovaThreads are totally safe.
Restore the V-Shape
NovaThreads is one the most effective ways to lift loose skin without surgery, and to regain that natural, beautiful V-Shape of your face. As we age, the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces. The areas that are generally affected are the eyebrows, areas around the eyes, cheeks, jowls and neck. The result is a longer, more square-shaped and older-looking face; we lose that youthful V-Shaped face.
NovaThreads brings back your V-Shape. Although NovaThreads can be used anywhere in the body, one of the most effective area is the jawline and neck. The lower third of the face can be challenging when treating with Botox or fillers. NovaThreads does not give the look of too much added volume that sometimes a filler does.
What are NovaThreads and how do they work?
NovaThreads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic PDO absorbable suture that stimulates collagen production and the skin structure. FDA approved, PDO (polydioxanone) sutures are commonly used to perform cardiac surgery. It’s the safest material that can be used in the body. Your skin fully absorbs the NovaThread within 4 to 6 months, without leaving any scar tissue. Commonly called the “lunch time facelift” in Europe, the procedure takes a short time, and results can last 12 to 15 months.
No cuts or incisions, and the procedure is purely injection based much like other fillers!
Who is a good candidate?
• People with minimal signs of aging who need just a small lift. Good candidates are those patients who are starting to see some droopiness.
• People who have had some relapse from a previous plastic surgery procedure such as a facelift or neck lift.
• People who do not wish to undergo a surgical facelift or necklift for various reasons such as cost and recovery time.
SkinTrust is thrilled to have Dr. Joseph perform the NovaThread lifting as well as other injectable procedures.
