What are NovaThreads?
Imagine getting a lift to your face without any incisions… Now you can! NovaThreads are the answer.
NovaThreads are basically hypodermic needles that are preloaded with an absorbable suture.
This suture is very absorbable and are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
The best part is your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.
In medical terms “Selective Inflammatory Response”, it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & MicroNeedling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NOVATHREADS we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally!
Basically, your skin will have a very gentle reaction to the threads….
While, PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.
It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin!
A great addition to this treatment that we offer is the NovaMesh and the NovaLyft.
For the NovaLyft the sutures have special cobs which grip under the skin. The Sutures can be tightening from both directions which helps the skin to tighten and reposition immediately.
The tightened skin will begin to build new collagen and adhere to the sutures helping you to look your refreshed best.
NovaMesh, is a process of creating a mesh under the skin simply by using 102 sutures vertically and up to 3 horizontally.
Think of the hashtag symbol # or a net to climb on.
By creating this mesh it provides a foundation for new collagen growth.
The NovaMesh tightens the skin naturally from within.
The best part of this process is the results are natural looking.
