Nova Threads

What are Nova Threads?

They are  absorbable sutures preloaded onto tiny needles.

  • Quick procedure
  • Effective for Face, Brow, Neck and Jawline
  • **Can be used along with Silhouette Instalift and injectable treatments ***

Nova Threads absorbable suture? What is it?

  • It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. It’s one of the safest materials that can be implanted into the body.
  • The fine suture thread is absorbed within 4 to 6 months and does not result in scar tissue.

How does a Nova Thread treatment work?

The suture threads are inserted into the skin in a particular configuration.  Over time, as the sutures are absorbed and new collagen is generated, the threads cause a lifting and tightening effect. By inserting Nova Threads, we create a self-healing response that is supported by your own collagen!

How long does it last?

Longevity of results will vary. Initial treatment protocols may require three-four treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.  Once the desired level of improvement has been achieved, results may last 1-2 years. Because your skin continues to age, you will continue to experience natural loss of collagen, decreasing your level of improvement. Results are best maintained with proper at-home skincare and follow-up maintenance treatments.

Your skin gently reacts to the inserted threads

  • During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it.
  • PDO threads are NOT like older threads that were permanent and problematic.

Am I a good candidate?

Nova Threads provide an excellent treatment option for any area needing collagen stimulation to improve etched in lines/wrinkles. A consultation with one of our Dermatologists can very easily determine whether or not you are a candidate for this treatment.
