NovaThreads Q & A

What is NovaThreads?

As you age, your skin loses elasticity and gravity pulls it downward, giving you a haggard, aged look. The NovaThreads procedure uses absorbent surgical threads (PDO threads) injected just under your skin to lift sagging, lax areas of skin. The placement of the threads elevates your skin’s structure and triggers the tissue to produce collagen, a natural skin-strengthening compound, to recontour your face and add youthful tightness.

Over time, the threads dissolve but leave you with a lifted look, and NovaThreads pose no harm to your health.

What areas can NovaThreads treat?

Injectable thread lifting is like a semi-permanent facelift. Use it to treat issues such as:

  • Sagging cheeks

  • Crepey neck skin

  • Drooping jowls and jawline

  • Heavy brows

If you have another area that needs lifting, speak with Rhiannon to see if NovaThreads can help.

How do NovaThreads work?

NovaThreads are very thin surgical threads. Rhiannon injects them using a fine needle into predetermined treatment areas. During the procedure, there are no incisions, blood loss or scarring. The threads feature tiny hooks that latch on under your skin to lift it and create structure.

Over the course of four to six months, the threads dissolve. Your results are maintained, however, as they prompted collagen development, which keeps the skin taut and lifted even after the threads are gone.

What should I expect during the procedure?

Rhiannon applies a local, topical anesthetic prior to injecting NovaThreads, so you feel very little during the procedure. The needles are small, and the procedure is quick. You may have some slight bruising or swelling following the treatment, but you can easily cover it with makeup.

The needle pricks leave no visible marks, and you don’t have to worry about scarring.

How long do the results of a NovaThreads semi-permanent facelift last?

NovaThreads is known as a semi-permanent facelift because it gives you a lifted look for about one year following application. Maintenance treatments once per year help maintain your look and combat the continued effects of aging.
