The facelift has long been a favorite cosmetic surgery to help patients achieve youth and beauty by eliminating sagging skin, deep creases, crow’s feet, and jowls from the face. However, as non-invasive cosmetic enhancement procedures become more popular, many people find themselves searching for the results of a facelift without the requirement of surgery. A new treatment known as NovaThreads now achieves that goal by using an innovative and unexpected technique to fight signs of aging on the face
The Non-Surgical Facelift
The NovaThreads treatment utilizes a small cannula to strategically place polydioxanone (PDO) threads, the same type used in cardiothoracic surgery, under the skin. Each PDO thread is interpreted as a foreign body by the skin, which triggers extra collagen production within the skin. As this extra collagen builds around the PDO threads, the skin becomes tightened and lifted. After about six months, the PDO threads are safely and naturally absorbed back into the body, leaving the fresh, healthy collagen in place to maintain the facelift-like results.
Nu-Mesh and Nu-Lift Treatments
The ability to achieve the results of a facelift without any surgery is an exciting prospect for many patients. The NovaThreads treatment is done using either the Nu-Mesh or Nu-Lift technique to target and eliminate unwanted signs of aging.
The Nu-Lift technique uses PDO threads like “hooks” to gently pull the skin up and eliminate unwanted sagging. As the skin is repositioned and more collagen accumulates, a more youthful “V-Shape” is created on the face. The Nu-Mesh technique, on the other hand, focuses on making improvements on other parts of the face like the lips, neck, and cheeks. Using this procedure, the threads are placed like a “mesh” under the skin to produce a strong web of collagen that can reverse wrinkles, shrink pores, and lend the skin more elasticity.
Long-Lasting, Beautiful Results
The NovaThreads procedure leads to continually improved collagen production over a span of six months, at which time the PDO threads are absorbed into the body. The new stores of collagen help to retain results up to another year.
