Before and After
What are Threads?
PDO threads are a surgical grade thread that can be inserted into various areas of the face and body to lift and tighten the skin as well as generate collagen. The threads are dissolved by the body over a period of weeks to months There are several types of threads we can use for various needs or skin concerns.
Do they hurt?
We have several different ways to achieve maximum comfort during our procedure including the use of topical and injectable lidocaine.
Will I be numb during the procedure?
Yes! We do numb for our thread procedures. Typically I will use injectable lidocaine or topical lidocaine depending on the type of thread we are using.
How much can they lift my face?
Every thread procedure is tailor made to fit your specific skin characteristics. We do use a very high tensile strength thread that allows for maximum lift and skin tightening.
Do they need to be done more than once?
Thread treatments, like any facial regenerative treatment will need maintenance. This depends on the type of threads and desired outcome. We highly recommend a consult to discuss a long term treatment plan.

General Information about NovaThread®: NovaThreads® are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Simply insert the whole needle under the skin and pull the needle out. The PDO thread remains under the skin. The idea behind the “Nova-Mesh” is to restore the facial structure by creating the scaffolding to support and lift the tissues and reposition the skin in order to recreate “The Golden Ratio” of the face instantly. NovaThreads® are synthetic absorbable surgical sutures that have been used for decades in different surgical specialties. It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. The skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months and won’t leave with any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates the collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for the next 12-15 months.
