If you notice your jawline sagging, you’re not alone. This common side effect of aging is one of the most notorious to treat and can leave many people feeling hopeless about regaining a younger-looking appearance. However, Nova Threads can help lift your sagging jowls and restore a firmer jawline in just a few treatments. This is just one of the top-quality treatments offered at OM MediSpa in Elgin, IL.
How Do Nova Threads Work?
Nova Threads are dissolvable PDO (polydioxanone) threads designed to achieve tighter, firmer skin and boost collagen production. These injectable threads are designed with barb-like protrusions which hook into your skin, creating an instant lift which is enhanced over time thanks to continuing collagen production in the treated area. This treatment has been proven to be effective in lifting sagging jawlines and creating a more defined, attractive profile by reducing the appearance of loose skin.
During treatment, your doctor will inject the threads into the planned injection sites. Once injected, the threads anchor themselves in your skin, beginning to create a noticeable lift as soon as they are attached. Unlike surgery, this treatment involves minimal discomfort and an easy recovery time.
You may feel some tenderness around the injection sites, but within 2-3 weeks your skin will look and feel normal, and no one will know you’ve had any treatment unless you tell them. As your body heals and the threads dissolve, new collagen production results in a firmer jawline and a visibly improved profile.
How Long Do They Last?
Nova Threads are designed with the same material which is used in major surgeries. This means that the threads are completely safe and body-friendly with minimal risks. About 4-8 months after injection, the threads dissolve and are safely removed by your body. However, the micro-trauma of the injection combined with the presence of the foreign threads in your skin results in a massive collagen production boost.
This production provides the framework necessary for your skin to remain smooth and firm for up to 2-3 years, after which point you can repeat treatment if desired.
Am I an Ideal Candidate?
Nova Threads are considered safe and effective for most patients and skin types. You may wish to consult your doctor if you have hypersensitive skin as this treatment can irritate your skin during the healing process. In addition, you should consult your doctor if you’ve had past facelift treatment or surgery. Your doctor can help you determine your candidacy for treatment during an initial consultation appointment.
If you’re dissatisfied with the way your jawline appears, it may be time for a lunch-break treatment which can give you results comparable to a facelift surgery. Nova Threads can help transform your profile by giving your skin the extra collagen boost it needs to remain smooth and tight for up to 3 years after treatment, letting you focus on the more important things in life.
