Is there a non-surgical Facelift?

Today more than ever before, there are a variety of options available for rejuvenating the aging face, including botox and dermal fillers. But is there a non-surgical facelift that can lift and tighten your face, and improve the appearance of your skin.

Is there a non-surgical Facelift?

The thread lift has been dubbed the non-surgical ‘facelift,’ because it provides a subtle lift to the skin, and creates a tightening effect over time. It is considered a viable alternative to a facelift, for men and women wanting to reverse early signs of aging.

What exactly is a thread lift?

A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure in which temporary sutures are used to suspend the skin. This process gives the face a subtle lift and makes it tighter. A thread lift is particularly beneficial for lifting the skin on the cheeks and jowls.

NovaThreads is a common thread lift procedure that uses sutures made of a biocompatible material known as polydioxanone (PDO).

How NovaThreads works

A needle is used to pass the threads under the skin. The threads have tiny cones embedded on them and as they are passed beneath the skin the cones grab and pull sagging areas of the skin, helping to reposition and elevate the skin.

The threads remain in place for about 3-4 months and then gradually dissolve. The procedure also stimulates the production of collagen, which is an essential skin protein that firms and tightens the skin.

NovaThreads gives the face an instant lift and after the procedure the face looks smoother, tighter, and more youthful. Results last up to 18 months.
