Have you ever looked in the mirror and held back the skin around your jawline? If you’d love a lift to your cheeks or lower face but aren’t thrilled with the thoughts of undergoing surgery, a NovaThread Facelift could be the perfect solution for you.
A NovaThread Face Lift is a procedure performed in the office without cutting the skin. Absorbable, biocompatible suspension threads are implanted under the skin. The lift provides a natural looking result which lasts 1-2 years.
How do the threads work?
NovaThreads have tiny serrations that allow them to slide easily under the skin when inserted but when they are pulled backward, the serrations engage the deeper layers of the skin. Appropriate tension is placed on the threads, resuspending the skin and creating a gentle and immediate lift. Choosing the vectors of placement of the threads is key to the success of the procedure.
What can the patient expect during and after the procedure?
There is no bruising and very little downtime associated with the procedure. Most patients can return to work the day of the procedure. There may be some tenderness in the areas of insertion of the threads which can be relieved with Advil or Tylenol. You should not engage in strenuous exercise for several days after the procedure and try to avoid sleeping on your face and vigorous scrubbing of the face for several days. Otherwise there are no restrictions!
