NovaThreads – Thread Lift Treatment
Amazing Facelifts without Surgery!
NovaThreads is a new, non-surgical thread lift procedure that is taking the country by storm. Why? Because it’s truly revolutionary. Within 30 minutes you’ll have a younger face without any scars.
What are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads are synthetic, absorbable threads (called PDO Threads) that are inserted under the skin. These threads lift, tighten and add volume to the treated area. Simultaneously, the body produces an inflammatory response, which results in increased production of collagen—the building block material in our face and neck. This increased collagen aids in volumizing the treated area for longer-lasting results.
PDO (polydioxanone) threads are surgical sutures that historically have been used to perform cardiac surgery. These PDO sutures are FDA-approved and have proven to be one of the safest materials that can be used in your body. Your skin will completely absorb the NovaThread within 4 to 6 months without leaving any scar tissue.
What Areas Can be Treated with NovaThreads?
Although NOVATHREADS can be inserted almost any place, they are especially effective in the neck and jawline areas. This is because the lower part of the face has traditionally been more difficult to treat using BOTOX or other dermal fillers. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
With Novathreads, Bridgeport Laser & Wellness in Portland can now restore the “V-Shape” that your face once had.
Conditions with NovaThreads include:
- Sagging or loose skin in the Cheeks and Jawline
- Gaunt Flattened Cheeks
- Pronounced, Folded Smile Lines
- Loose Neck Skin
- Lip Definition and Shape
- Drooping Eyebrows
NovaMesh & NovaLyft
There are two types of procedures that can be done using Novathreads. The first one, called NovaMesh, uses smooth threads to create a mesh or grid of threads under the skin (i.e. 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally). Think #hashtag. This NovaMesh will act as the foundation for your body’s new collagen production. The results are amazing as the skin tightens naturally from within.
NovaLyft is the other technique or method utilized and can create a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have barbs along them, which grip underneath the skin. The threads can be pulled in one or two directions, which gives us great flexibility to reposition the skin for the best effect. And just like NovaMesh, the body will build new collagen to help secure the lift.
Are Thread Lifts Safe?
Yes. NovaThreads have been FDA-Approved and the material used (polydioxanone thread) has been used for many years as dissolving sutures in open-heart surgery.
What Results Can I Expect from Thread Lifts?
The great thing about NovaThreads is that you’ll see results immediately. Then, as collagen continues to produce, your appearance will continue to improve over the next six months.
How Long Do Thread Lifts Last?
With NovaThreads, you should be able to achieve results that last up to 18 month (1.5 years.) With an additional touch-up at the one-year mark, you can extend that timeframe.
Is There Any Downtime or Side Effects with Thread Lifts?
NovaThread treatments typically require just one evening off from work or other activities. Some patients have reported swelling or bruising that has lasted longer than 1-2 days. When you meet with us, we’ll discuss other possible side effects?
