How Nova Threads Benefit the Lower Face

There are several nonsurgical treatments to fight the signs of aging on the upper and mid-face. Dermal fillers, Botox, and other treatments are available for this purpose, yet the lower face is often a problem area. With Nova Threads, you have the ability to lift, firm, and tighten your lower face, jaw, and neck with a minimally invasive and nonsurgical method. Here is what you need to know about Nova Threads and how they benefit the lower face.

What Are Nova Threads?

Nova Threads are small PDO threads that are strategically placed below the surface of the skin. The threads are made of polydioxanone or PDO. This material is the same material that was used for years in the cardiothoracic field and for other biomedical purposes. It is ideal for Nova Threads treatments because the threads are naturally absorbed by the body within six months, leaving no scarring in their wake. 

How Do They Work?

The process of how Nova Threads benefit the lower face is really fairly simple. The Nova Threads are strategically placed in the lower face along the jawline to restore the “v” shape that is associated with beauty and youth. The placement of the threads stimulates collagen production, and collagen forms around the threads to tighten, lift, and contour the jaw and lower face. By the time the Nova Threads are absorbed by the body, the end results have been achieved.

What Results Can I Expect?

Nova Threads don’t produce immediate results, but you will begin to see some improvements in your appearance in short order. Within six months your lower face will be tighter, firmer, and more shapely, giving you a beautiful and youthful look. These results usually last up to one year or longer, and Nova Threads treatments are safe enough to repeat as necessary.
