NovaThreads Q & A

What are NovaThreads?

NovaThreads are a cosmetic technique used to lift and tighten sagging skin on the face and neck, enhance collagen production, and produce firmer, smoother skin.

NovaThreads are made up of PDO (Polydioxanone) material loaded in needle and cannula that are used to perform facial thread lifts. The needles, or cannulas, are pre-loaded with Novathreads, an absorbable barb suture, much like those used in medical suturing. The sutures stay in your skin as the needle retracts, and your skin fully absorbs them within four to six months.

The procedure can be done in-office and with local anesthesia. Dr. Bhoot implants the fine, absorbable NovaThreads into the subcutaneous layer of your skin using small needles and cannula.


How do NovaThreads work?

The NovaThreads have tiny barbs that grab onto the tissue to hold them in place and cause a selective inflammatory response. Your body and skin are particularly good at repairing themselves, and the threads prompt your skin to create new collagen.

Your skin will continue to repair and heal itself for the entire four to six months following your procedure.


Who is a good candidate for NovaThreads?

If you’d like the benefits of a facelift but don’t want to undergo surgery, NovaThreads can be an excellent choice to plump, smooth, and firm your skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Thread lifts can benefit both men and women who want to rejuvenate their face, neck, and skin, and create a more youthful look.

The technology is minimally invasive and works exceptionally well for lifting sagging skin.


What are the benefits of NovaThreads?

NovaThreads make excellent facial rejuvenation solutions. The sutures used are fully absorbed through your skin and don’t leave any scar tissue.

The PDO absorbable sutures are made of polydioxanone, and they’re the same sutures that doctors use for open-heart surgery. They're among the safest materials that can go inside the human body.

More benefits of Nova Thread procedures include:

  • No surgery or pain
  • Long-lasting
  • Natural-looking
  • A quick lunchtime procedure typically completed in less than 45 minutes

The procedure also works particularly well for the jawline and neck.
