NovaThreads are a non-invasive treatment designed to help combat the appearance of loose, sagging skin. This procedure involves the use of absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone. During the treatment, a needle preloaded with the sutures is injected into the skin. The thread is left beneath the skin when the treatment specialist removes the needle. You’ll notice your skin gently responding to the threads and it will gradually begin to repair itself around the suture. These threads can be skillfully placed to help stimulate collagen in areas where volume is lost. This procedure can fill a fold and can be placed to pull and tighten the skin around the neck or brows. The threads will be fully absorbed by your skin over the next few months, with no scar tissue left behind.
