What is Skin Tightening with NovaThreads?
NovaThreads has been dubbed the non-surgical facelift, but it is so much more. The technique uses self-dissolving sutures to support skin rejuvenation. Self-dissolving sutures are not a new technology in and of themselves, but their refinement and application for cosmetic use is. NovaThreads are super fine-gauged and completely absorbable polydioxanone fibers. They come in two forms:
1) The first variety is smooth threaded. They are used to correct unwanted lines. They also are able to give added definition and shape the lips and can help stimulate collagen regeneration, promoting healthier skin overall.
2) The second variety is microscopic serrations. They are capable of gripping and lifting the skin and are inserted within the dermal layer just beneath the skin’s surface.
Widespread Aesthetic Application
NovaThreads has a diverse set of applications. The treatment can be used to correct signs of aging in various areas.
Skin tightening with NovaThreads appeals to men and women who want safe and effective skin rejuvenation and restoration without the worry of surgery.
Not Just a Stand-Alone Treatment
NovaThreads is capable of producing surprising results on its own, but it can also be safely merged with other treatments for even better results.
The longevity of your results depends on a number of factors. However, most people see results that last from months to years. It is worth noting the threads stimulate collagen production while in your body, so your results will actually improve with time.
