What Are NovaThreads?

NovaThreads are FDA-cleared surgical sutures that can be used to lift and improve the appearance of sagging facial skin. NovaThreads are safe and naturally dissolve, meaning there’s no need to worry about getting them removed. NovaThreads can be placed under the skin in such a way that provides instant volume and improvement within the facial region. NovaThreads are a great treatment option for individuals who may have early signs of aging but aren’t candidates for more drastic treatment options, like a surgical facelift.

How Do They Work?

NovaThreads are made from PDO sutures, which are biodegradable and extremely safe (so safe, in fact, that they’re used in surgical procedures). The PDO sutures are placed in key areas underneath the skin, thus acting as scaffolding to lift areas that may be beginning to sag from age. The sutures last about four to six months before they naturally dissolve. During that time, the sutures help trigger extra collagen production for younger, tighter-looking skin.

In general, the PDO sutures are placed in the lower facial region to help lift sagging skin around the neck, jawline, and lower cheeks.

Is It Painful?*

The placement of NovaThreads involves using needles, so some patients may be uncomfortable with the procedure. To help manage any pain, your Derma Tech specialist can numb the treatment area with ice or a topical cream. In good news, results appear instantly – no waiting several weeks to see facial improvement.

Am I a Good Candidate for NovaThreads?*

You’re a good candidate for NovaThreads if you’re starting to see minor skin sagging along the jawline and lower facial region, but you’re not ready for drastic corrections like surgical facelifts. Since this procedure doesn’t involve chemicals or downtime, it’s safe for most patients.
