The world of nonsurgical cosmetic treatments is continually evolving, and the options available today for reversing signs of aging are less invasive and more effective than ever before. In the past, it used to be that if you wanted to address aging symptoms such as jowls or loose facial tissues, your best bet was a surgical facelift procedure. While injectable treatments or skin resurfacing procedures can sometimes correct mild degrees of skin laxity, in most cases, once excess, sagging skin has arrived, the only way to fix it effectively was through surgery. That’s where thread lifting comes in.

Thread lifts, or PDO (polydioxanone) threads, are temporary USA-made sutures composed of a biocompatible material that is safely absorbed by the body over time. Rather than undergoing invasive surgery or plumping up lax skin with fillers, PDO thread lifts are a minimally-invasive procedure that noticeably lifts loose tissues and boost collagen production long-term for a transformative facial rejuvenation that works from the inside out. At the Anti-Aging Clinic of Northwest Florida, we use the highly-requested NovaThreads for our thread lifts to ensure patients see the youthful lift they want without any incisions, scarring or downtime.


How Do NovaThreads Work?

NovaThreads are a nonsurgical treatment that is explicitly designed to create additional internal support to sagging tissues. By inserting NovaThreads beneath the skin, their barbed or smooth anchor points on the thread work as scaffolding for loose tissues to visibly lift the skin. In addition to their instantaneous lifting effects, NovaThreads ingredients also stimulate new collagen production by tapping into your body’s natural healing responses. As the body safely and easily reabsorbs NovaThreads over four to six months, new collagen produces continued improvements to the appearance of your skin for up to 12 months or more for long-lasting results.

Who Can Benefit From NovaThreads?

Good candidates for NovaThreads are patients who display mild to moderate facial or neck sagging and who wish to delay or avoid the need for cosmetic surgery. Thread lifts are a highly-effective facelift alternative that produces remarkable results without the use of scalpels or general anesthesia. Each thread lift procedure at the Anti-Aging Clinic of Northwest Florida can be tailored to your areas of concerns and goals to deliver the results you expect.

In addition to facial aging concerns, NovaThreads can also be used to lift sagging, loose skin in the upper arms, abdomen or above the knees with long-lasting outcomes.

Some of the common treatment areas that can be addressed by NovaThreads:
  • Under-eyes
  • Sagging eyebrows
  • Crow’s feet
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Jawline
  • Upper neck

Your NovaThreads Results

NovaThreads are a relatively quick in-office procedure that can be inserted in just 30 to 45 minutes under local anesthesia. Once in place, your NovaThreads will remain intact under your skin for four to six months before they slowly dissolve and are broken down by the body. NovaThreads are small and inserted subdermally, so you won’t be able to feel your sutures once your skin heals around them.

The lifted results of your NovaThreads will be apparent immediately after your appointment as the anchor points in the underlying threads hold tissues in place. Increased collagen production in the body will continue to enhance the youthfulness of your complexion long after your treatment. Most individuals will enjoy their smoother, firmer skin for up to a full year or more before signs of aging emerge once again.

If moderate skin laxity or visible signs of aging have you longing for the effects of a facelift without surgery, NovaThreads may be the perfect solution for you. With minimal side effects and downtime, NovaThreads thread lifting can provide the subtle and natural-looking facial rejuvenation you crave.
