What are NOVATHREADS?
NovaThreads are a non-invasive treatment to help with loose and sagging skin. A more detailed description is that they are absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone (PDO). These sutures have been used in cardiac surgeries for the past 60 years or more and are the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
The NovaThreads Procedure
During the treatment, a preloaded needle is inserted into the skin (on the face or body). Your injector then leaves the thread beneath the skin when she removes the needle. Your skin gently reacts to the threads and begins repairing itself around the suture. The threads can be expertly placed to stimulate collagen in areas of volume loss or fill a fold, and also can be placed to pull and tighten the skin, such as that of the neck or brows. Over the next 4-6 months, your skin fully absorbs the threads but and they won’t leave behind scar tissue. As the thread is breaking down your body is producing collagen and essentially taking the threads place giving you results that typically last about a year and sometimes up to 2 years.
