More and more patients are looking for non-surgical solutions for their aesthetic concerns. While there are plenty of anti-aging treatments for things like wrinkles and pigmentation problems, not many are able to address loose, sagging skin. Enter NovaThreads, commonly referred to as PDO Threads -a minimally invasive treatment designed specifically for age-related skin laxity. Enjoy a more youthful-looking appearance with a simple in-office treatment.

NovaThreads is a revolutionary new procedure that uses advanced biodegradable sutures to lift sagging skin. At Derma-Tech Medical Spa,  this procedure is quickly becoming one of our go-to treatments for sagging skin, especially in the jowl and lower face region. Add NovaThreads to your non-surgical facelift for dramatic results with minimal downtime.

What Are PDO Threads?

PDO Threads are a non-surgical solution for sagging skin. The procedure is FDA-approved for addressing loose skin in the jawline and lower face. Men and women can improve their overall facial appearance with little to no side effects, and minimal recovery time. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine in 24-48 hours following your NovaThreads procedure.

How Do PDO Threads Work?

Treatments are quick and easy. Prior to your procedure, a local anesthetic is used to numb the treatment area. Your skincare specialist will inject the barbed threads under the dermis with a small needle called a cannuala. This method allows the threads to be slightly tightened in order to lift the skin, producing a firmer, tighter appearance. Most patients tolerate the short procedure quite well.

The surgical sutures act as scaffolding, supporting the sagging areas of skin. PDO Threads dissolve in a few months but because they help trigger your body’s natural collagen production, patients can experience enhanced results even after the sutures have dissolved.

When Will I See Results?

You’ll notice an instant lift directly after your NovaThreads treatment. The procedure is designed as a one-time treatment meaning you won’t need to come back for another appointment until your sutures have dissolved. PDO Threads typically dissolve naturally within 4-6 months with collagen-building results lasting slightly longer. Treatments can safely and effectively be done as needed to maintain an optimal outcome.

Am I A Candidate for a Thread Lift?

NovaThreads doesn’t involve major surgery and has minimal downtime making it an ideal procedure for almost anyone with lax skin. You may be a good candidate for the procedure if you’re bothered by sagging skin on the lower portion of the face, especially at the jawline. Patients who would like to combat early-on signs of aging but aren’t ready to commit to surgical procedures may be a good fit for NovaThreads. Dr. Michelle A. Boice or Trish Draper, R.N. will help determine your candidacy for NovaThreads at the time of your initial consultation.
