We all strive to age gracefully and look our best at every stage of life. For many of us, that means undergoing laser skin treatments to diminish signs of aging and reverse sun damage. For others, looking our best might mean surgery to lift and tighten sagging skin, such as jowls. But what about the people who need more than laser skin rejuvenation can offer who aren’t ready for surgery? There’s finally a solution to fill this gap—the thread lift!
We recently expanded our aesthetic menu to provide thread lifts with NovaThreads®. NovaThreads are dissolvable sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO), which are commonly used in cardio-thoracic surgery and considered to be one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. These threads are pre-loaded onto hypodermic needles and gently inserted under the skin to lay parallel to the skin’s surface, creating a scaffolding-type of support structure to the skin. While these threads provide immediate lifting and smoothing, they dissolve over time while stimulating the skin’s natural healing response, prompting new collagen growth and providing long-lasting rejuvenation, up to 18 months per treatment.
Thread lifts are ideal for smoothing lines and wrinkles and correcting sagging skin like jowls and neck lines. Best of all, there’s minimal downtime.
