Forget what you know about threads!
These are resorbable & easy to insert. This means no more complications!
These are the new threads, these are the NovaThreads!
The resorbable thread, easily inserted through a needle.
What is a Thread Facelift?
A thread facelift is a safe, non-invasive alternative to traditional facelift surgery. This convenient procedure can reduce sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck more quickly and with less risk. Special dissolvable threads are used during the facelift to hold the skin and facial tissue in place until threads dissolve.
This innovative procedure can be performed in just one or two hours, often without anesthesia. During the thread facelift, the cosmetic surgeon will insert thin threads into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These threads attach to the skin and are then pulled back to lift and smooth the face. The treated areas will be raised slightly, almost immediately, eliminating signs of aging and giving the patient a rejuvenated appearance. Once the threads are in a position that suits the patient, they are then tied and knotted in a discreet location within the scalp, where scarring will be very minimal.
What are NovaThreads Made Of?
Resorbable Material: PDO Threads (Polydioxanone)
Polydioxanone is used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery because it is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and doesn’t create any scar tissue. The threads stimulate collagen synthesis and the skin structure will hold for another 12 to 15 months.
No Cuts or Incisions. Purely Injections!
The NovaThreads are needles are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Simply insert the whole needle in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, and pull the needle out.
Meshing & Lyfting
A beautiful and healthy face has a “v-shape”. With the ageing of tissues and the action of gravity, this “v-shape” gets lost. The idea behind Nova-Mesh and the Nova-Lyft technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “v-shape” or where necessary to delicately “lyft” the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “v-shape” where it’s been lost.
Nova-Mesh consists of creating a mesh under the skin using the NovaThreads Smooth or the Twist, usually 5 threads per area, inserted in 2 or 3 directions, creating a “mesh” underneath the skin. This technique relies on the action of the needle and the reaction to the foreign body to stimulate the collagen under the skin.
Nova-Lyft uses the barbed threads. Those barbs or cogs provide an extra grip that allows for a real Lyft of the skin. This procedure consists of creating a real “skin repositioning” or tightening depending on the kind of barb Novathreads used and the area of treatment.
Neck & Jaw
Although NovaThreads can be inserted/injected almost anywhere, one particular area that was never available to previous non-invasive procedures is the jaw and neck area. NovaThreads is the only non-invasive treatment that can target the jaw and neck.
