WHAT ARE NOVATHREADS?
NovaThreads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture. No cuts or incisions. Purely injections! The NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Simply insert the whole needle in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, & pull the needle out. The PDO thread remains under the skin.
What is a “PDO ABSORBABLE SUTURE?”
- It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open-heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
- Your skin fully absorbs it within 4 to 6 months & won’t leave you with any scar tissue.
Designed for those experiencing early signs of aging, such as minor facial sagging, the thread facelift procedure can be completed in just one or two hours, often with the use of anesthesia. Almost instantly, the treated areas will be raised slightly and this will eliminate any noticeable sagging.
Patients will be pleased with their rejuvenated appearance. After the threads are knotted, they become hidden the skin which makes any scarring that may result virtually invisible. Special threads are used during the facelift to discreetly hold repositioned skin and facial tissue in place after the operation.
In medical terms, “Selective Inflammatory Response” is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Fractional Laser, Chemical Peels & MicroNeedling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NOVATHREADS we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally! Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads Yes, PDO is fully absorbable, but that doesn’t mean your skin won’t react to it. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it. It’s “controlled healing” happening underneath the skin!
Although NOVATHREADS can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
During your procedure at Freya’s Lair Medical Spa in Albuquerque, the cosmetic surgeon will insert thin threads into the face through tiny incisions made in the targeted area. These tiny threads then attach to the skin tissue and are pulled back to lift and smooth the face. Don’t wait! Book your consult today! Call us today!
