As the body ages the soft tissue in the face begins to degrade and this leads to the appearance of slack skin. Skin becomes loose and begins to hang, and up until recently there have been relatively few nonsurgical choices when it comes to treatment. Enter NovaThreads,Ⓡ the easy to perform, non-surgical, long-lasting procedure with minimal discomfort for patients. NovaThreadsⓇ produce dramatic and immediate results for a beautiful, natural-looking facelift.
Unlike the older threads formerly on the market, NovaThreadsⓇ are not permanent threads, which means they are extremely unlikely to cause infection, irregularity, and extrusion. The new collagen created by NovaThreadsⓇ is all that is necessary for your skin to remain looking healthy and young for as long as possible; no need for unreliable permanent threads anymore.

What are NovaThreadsⓇ?
NovaThreadsⓇ are hypodermic needles preloaded with polydioxanone (PDO) absorbable sutures. PDO is well-tolerated by the body, with studies showing that it is usually absorbed within 6 months and does not leave any scar tissue. There is some variance between patients, but NovaThreadsⓇ typically last from 8-10 months, sometimes lasting as long as 12 months.
Similar to microneedling, NovaThreadsⓇ prompt the skin to repair itself which causes new collagen to be produced naturally. By injecting the PDO sutures into your face, we are telling your skin where it needs to ‘heal’ and create younger-looking, fresh skin. The NovaThreadsⓇ hold your skin in place until the healing process is complete, at which point they have usually dissolved completely.
NovaThreadsⓇ are safe to inject almost anywhere, but they are most commonly used on the neck and jawline because that is where they can be the most effective. These areas usually experience the most sagging the older the face gets, which makes them difficult to treat with other types of fillers.
Do NovaThreadsⓇ Have Side Effects?
NovaThreadsⓇ are completely safe and absorbable, but sometimes patients do have minor side effects around the injection side. These can include:
NovaThreadsⓇ require little to no downtime, and patients can normally resume their daily activities with no problem.
