What Are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads are specialized sutures that are placed under the skin through an injection with a hypodermic needle. The threads stimulate collage production in the skin and can also lift the skin’s deeper tissues. NovaThreads are biocompatible and are simply absorbed by the body over time. As NovaThreads dissolve, new collagen will grow in their place. NovaThreads are cleared by the FDA and have a very good safety track record.

What Is The Procedure Like?
Treatment with NovaThreads often takes less than an hour. Depending on the patient's needs, there are two main techniques to place the NovaThreads:
NuMesh: This technique builds a type of scaffolding under the skin using two smooth sutures placed horizontally and three placed vertically. It increases skin firmness and stimulates collagen.
NuLift: This technique uses barbed sutures to lift the skin and stimulate collagen. It's mainly used on the face, neck, or jowls.
What Should I Expect After Treatment?
There is no downtime after the procedure. There may be slight redness, swelling, or bruising. Most patients can return to normal activities immediately. However, you should avoid intensive activity like working out for 72 hours.
How Long Do NovaThreads Last?
The threads dissolve over the course of four to six months. The results of the collagen that's produced (such as increased firmness and fullness) can last up to a year. Sometimes, patients choose complementary procedures such as microneedling, fillers, or Botox® to boost and optimize their results.
