There was a time when the only option for deep facial rejuvenation was an invasive surgical facelift. NovaThreads offer a non-surgical, minimally-invasive alternative to a surgical facelift. Using absorbable sutures composed of polydioxanone, areas of the face can be strategically lifted to a more youthful position while stimulating the natural production of collagen and elastin.

What is NovaThreads?

Youthful skin is supple, tight, and glowing. As you begin to age, your skin will lose volume and its firm youthful quality, leading to jowls, deep wrinkles and folds, and hollows at temples, cheeks and under the eyes. NovaThreads are a revolutionary method of non-surgical facelift using barbed, absorbable sutures to lift the skin into a more youthful position.

The placement of these threads stimulates your body’s natural regenerative processes, increasing production of collagen and elastin: the building blocks of healthy, firm skin. By reinforcing the underlying scaffolding, NovaThreads stimulates the production of new collagen for months following insertion.

How do NovaThreads work?

NovaThreads come as hypodermic needles which are prefilled with specialized polydioxanone sutures to be placed under the surface of the skin. When inserted into the skin, the NovaThreads sutures are left behind, calling on your body’s own natural healing responses. Your body will go to work increasing its production of collagen and elastin, giving your skin lift and volume resulting in a more youthful appearance. There are two types of NovaThreads, depending on your desired result:

  • NuMesh consists of two threads inserted vertically and three threads inserted horizontally to create a mesh structure under the surface of the skin. This serves as the foundation upon which new collagen and elastin will build to reinforce the scaffolding of your skin, tightening your skin and reducing the appearance of lines and wrinkles with a subtle effect.
  • NuLift produces a more dramatic lift by utilizing threads which contain a series of barbs which grab onto the dermis and lift it into a more youthful position. Results with NuLift are immediately evident and will continue to improve over three to six months following insertion. As with NuMesh, NuLift will stimulate your body’s production of collagen and elastin which will anchor the lift and provide lasting benefits.

What are the benefits of NovaThreads?

NovaThreads provide rejuvenation of the face and neck without the need for invasive surgery or downtime. While NovaThreads can be inserted in any area of the face, they are particularly suited for rejuvenation of the lower face, jaw, and neck. NovaThreads provide both immediate and ongoing results, lifting the facial skin, restoring volume, and restoring the underlying scaffolding of your skin for more appealing facial contours.

Who is a candidate for treatment with NovaThreads?

Men and women who are interested in restoring the contours of their face and neck without pain or downtime may be excellent candidates for treatment with NovaThreads. The best candidates for a threadlift with NovaThreads is experiencing mild to moderate skin laxity in the lower face and jaw. Patients who are allergic to lidocaine or epinephrine are not suitable candidates for treatment with NovaThreads.


Can NovaThreads be combined with other procedures?

Yes. NovaThreads can be combined with laser skin resurfacing, dermal fillers, and neuromodulators such a BOTOX for complete facial rejuvenation.
