As we go through life, the experiences we encounter can bring out the best of who we are. But we can also notice unwelcome changes in the form of wrinkles, loose skin, and less definition in the jaw and neck areas. At Chetco Medical and Aesthetics in Brookings, OR, we strive to undo such changes using state-of-the-art technology and treatments. One of the best treatments available is Nova Threads. To learn more about this popular treatment option, contact us today!
What Are Nova Threads?
Nova Threads are absorbable sutures placed under the facial skin during a thread lift. The threads are made of a synthetic biodegradable material called polydioxanone, or PDO. Having been used in surgeries for years, PDO is considered one of the safest materials to insert into the body.
In addition to PDO filaments, Nova Threads have hypodermic needles which are passed through the skin, parallel to the surface, that leave behind the thread when pulled out. The sutures dissolve over time, allowing collagen to grow in their place.
What Is a Thread Lift?
A thread lift is a non-surgical treatment that passes sutures under the surface of the skin. The threads physically raise the tissue and create a foundation for enhanced collagen production.
When the threads are appropriately positioned, the treatment can give the face a more youthful, toned appearance. Skin is lifted immediately, and as the threads are absorbed over time, they trigger a boost in natural collagen production to add volume.
What to Expect During Treatment
Treatments are performed in the comfort of our office in Brookings, OR. There are different techniques for placing Nova Threads. The exact details of each treatment will vary from patient to patient, as the procedure is customized based on individual wants and needs.
What Are the Benefits of Nova Threads?
Generally speaking, the treatment is relatively quick, easy, and has minimal downtime. Because Nova Threads are dissolvable, they are safer than the permanent sutures that used to be inserted during thread lifts, which had the potential to attract infection-causing bacteria. The threads can be placed using local anesthesia. This is a major benefit when compared to a surgical lifting procedure.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Nova Threads dissolve naturally over time, so the skin lifting effect is temporary. However, the improved fullness and firmness caused by collagen production can continue for quite a long time. The results and their longevity will vary from patient to patient, however.
