Good news for those who dread going under the knife but still want an effective facelift: thread facelifts are back. And they are back with several improvements, making them safer and more effective than ever before.
Thread facelifts are minimally invasive cosmetic procedures that help minimize sagging in different parts of the face, including the neck, jawline, and cheeks. These facelifts are a great alternative to the conventional facelift approach and offer long-lasting results with no scars. The thread facelift has become an increasingly popular anti-aging cosmetic procedure in Europe, Asia, and the U.S.
What Are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads Facelift are resorbable threads used for lifting and tightening the skin without incisions or cuts. Our providers can use these threads for treating the skin on various parts of the body, including the neck, jaw, face, and décolletage areas. In fact, NovaThreads Facelift is considered to be one of the best procedures for providing firmness to the lower part of the face. This is because it does not add unnecessary volume to the area.
The basic principle behind the NovaThreads Facelift treatment is this: the skin has self-repairing capabilities, and the use of NovaThreads Facelift helps it heal faster naturally, creating new collagen for improved skin texture and elasticity.
NovaThreads Facelift are composed of a substance called polydioxanone, or PDO. PDO gets completely absorbed within four to six months, and it leaves no scars on the tissue. Further, it boosts collagen synthesis in the skin. This means that the newly created skin structure can remain healthy for at least 12 to 15 months.
The NovaThreads Procedure
The NovaThreads Facelift advanced procedure may be completed in less than one hour without the need for anesthesia. Your provider will begin the procedure by inserting thin threads into regions of the face through small incisions. These inserted threads get attached to the underlying tissues in the skin and are pulled back so as to lift and tighten the face.
Patients report that the treated areas feel uplifted almost immediately. The skin looks rejuvenated and there is reduced sagging. Since the procedure does not require the administration of anesthesia or sedation, patients can remain conscious and can review their appearance while the provider is still working.
The NovaMesh technique involves creating a net-like structure beneath the skin. This acts as the basis for the production of new collagen. It helps in the natural tightening of the skin from within.
The NovaLyft technique, on the other hand, produces a more instant and dramatic effect. During it, the inserted sutures are pulled in one or two directions, which results in quick and visible skin repositioning.
