Our dermatologists are national experts on NovaThreads, absorbable PDO sutures preloaded onto tiny needles. These sutures provide natural lifting results for the face, brow, neck and jawline with no surgery and minimal discomfort. They can be inserted along with injectables and/or the Silhoutte InstaLift.
NovaThreads are a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. It’s one of the safest materials that can be implanted into the body. The fine suture thread is absorbed within 4 to 6 months and over time, the sutures are absorbed and new collagen is generated. This causes a lifting and tightening effect. By inserting Nova Threads, we create a self-healing response that is supported by your own collagen!
Once the desired level of improvement has been achieved, results may last up to 1 year. Because your skin continues to age, you will continue to experience natural loss of collagen, decreasing your level of improvement. Results are best maintained with proper at-home skincare and follow-up maintenance treatments.
Nova Threads provide an excellent treatment option for any area needing collagen stimulation to improve etched in lines/wrinkles. A consultation with one of our dermatologists can very easily determine whether or not you are a candidate for this treatment.
