NovaThreads are a cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedure using FDA Approved polydioxanone sutures, (used safely for decades in surgery) to lift, tighten, firm and smooth your skin. NovaThreads perform lifting and volumizing by generating new collagen and enabling your skin care professional to lift and mold sagging skin into a more youthful position.
The results are instant, improve with time, can last for years, leave no scars, and best of all they are a true “injectable” and a wonderful alternative, (or adjunct) to surgical procedures as well as other skin rejuvenation treatments!
Dr. Newman feels NovaThreads are a nonsurgical option for the patient looking for tightening who does not necessarily want a facelift, or possibly is not ready for a facelift but desires tightening or rejuvenation with zero downtime.
NovaThreads are the latest facial rejuvenation treatment and one of the hottest trends in cosmetic surgery. It’s the perfect choice if you are looking for instant results, with little to no downtime.
In about an hour, your face will look instantly better with no scars and long lasting results.
How Long Do Results Last After NovaThreads Compared to a Surgcial Facelift?
NovaThreads are an injectable, directional skin tightening option. These threads are completely absorbed by your body within in 6 to 12 months and results typically last up to a couple of years. A surgical face lifts typically lasts about 5 years.
Is There Downtime After NovaThreads?
There is little to no social or professional downtime after a NovaThreads treatment. There is no need for pain medications or antibiotic. You may have some minor bruising and sometimes a face wrap is recommended to enhance the result, but the wrap is only for night time, and with a bit of makeup no one will ever know!
How Do They Work?
NovaThreads stimulate your body to build collagen in the area where the thread is placed. Over a few months the thread is absorbed by the body, but the collagen produced remains in place providing volume and lift that last and last!
Dr. Newman will select the right combination of threads, which are then carefully placed; either directionally to mold and lift sagging skin, or in a crosshatch pattem to provide a strong infrastructure for skin improvement. This fights the visible signs of aging in two ways:
- Immediate lifting: Fine lines and wrinkles are immediately lifted and smoothed for rejuvenation that you can see right away!
- Increased collagen: Over a few months, the skin ‘s healing response produces younger, fresher collagen around the sutures for stronger, firmer, more flexible skin that looks younger and smoother even after the threads are absorbed safely by the body.
What are the Types of Threads?
Smooth threads are used for collagen stimulation to reduce fine lines and superficial wrinkles.
Twist threads provide instant volume and are typically used for better definition of the lip line, and for filling and lifting smile lines.
Barbed threads grasp and hold sagging skin to lift the skin up to a more youthful, Firmer position.
Areas that can be Treated with NovaThreads:
- Upper and lower cheeks
- Forehead (brow lift)

How Long Do the Results Last?
