All About Threads

What are NovaThreads?

NovaThreads are FDA-cleared, absorbable sutures placed under the facial skin during a thread lift procedure, to physically lift the interstitial tissue and enhance collagen production. They work especially well to tighten skin on the neck, lower and midface, and jawline, to restore the face’s youthful V-shape.  


How long do NovaThreads last?

NovaThreads are a quick and easy way to get immediate results with long-term benefits. The PDO thread will be absorbed by your body, but improved fullness and firmness due to new collagen can last up to a year.  The Threads are completely absorbed by your body in 6 to 12 months and results typically last a year. NovaThreads can be used on their own as well as a great enhancement to fillers and Botox.  

How do they work?

NovaThreads stimulate your body to build collagen in the area where the thread is placed. Over a few months the thread is absorbed by the body, but the collagen produced remains in place providing volume and lift that last and last!

Why We Love It?

  • You’ll see an immediate result from the skin being lifted, with improvements in firmness for up to a year as new collagen develops.
  • This facial rejuvenation procedure is relatively quick and easy. Each PDO thread takes just a minute to place, with no incisions required. 
  • If you’re not ready for a surgical facelift, a thread lift is a far more affordable, less invasive option.


Targeted Areas for a Thread Lift

Many people choose a thread lift for facial areas that “sag” or look less tight over time. These areas include:

  • jowls and jawline
  • brow line
  • under-eye area
  • forehead
  • cheeks
  • neck
  • chest
  • kneecaps


Why choose NovaThreads over a surgical face lift?

There are many factors that will help you determine what’s right for you when it comes to looking and feeling younger. So ask yourself the following questions:

Do I want surgery? Do I want scars for life? Do I have 2-3 weeks recovery time? Do I want people to see a dramatically new me, or do I want something a bit more subtle, but noticeable?

Depending on how you answer these questions, you may want to consider a consultation for NovaThreads. Contact us to find out if you are a good candidate, and together let’s explore your options for a younger, fresher you!

How long do results last after NovaThreads compared to a surgical face lift?

NovaThrerads are an injectable, directional skin firming option. The Threads are completely absorbed by your body in 6 to 12 months and results typically last a couple of years. A surgical face lifts typically lasts about 5 years.

With NovaThreads the up front cost is significantly lower, and you can always come back in a year or two to refresh your results. With a surgical facelift you may not be able to have more than one because of scar tissue created during the first surgery.

What Can I Expect During My Appointment?

Your injector will place the threads in less than an hour. They will start by numbing your face with local anesthesia, so your thread lift shouldn’t hurt. 

During the treatment, a preloaded needle is inserted into the skin. 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 placed to stimulate collagen in areas of volume loss or to fill a fold. They can also be used to pull and tighten the skin, such as that of the neck or brows.  

What Should I Expect After Treatment?

There is little to no social or professional downtime after NoveThread injection. There is no need for pain medications or antibiotic. You may have some minor bruising and sometimes a face wrap is recommended to enhance the result, but the wrap is only for night time, and with a bit of makeup no one will ever know!
