Novathreads are thin, absorbable, and highly customizable surgical threads used in various cosmetic procedures, including facelift procedures. They can be used to lift and contour the face and fill in wrinkles and fine lines.Facelift surgery can be an effective way to reduce the signs of aging on the face. The surgery can help to improve the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin, and jowls. It can also help to improve the overall shape of the face.
While a facelift surgery can give you dramatic results, it’s also a major surgery with a long recovery time. That’s why more and more people are turning to nonsurgical solutions for a facelift, such as Novathreads, fillers, and botox. Nonsurgical procedures such as novathreads are less invasive than surgery and usually have shorter recovery times. That means you can get back to your regular activities much sooner.
Novathreads are made of a material called PDO (polydioxanone), a type of synthetic fiber commonly used in medical sutures. Novathreads are inserted into the skin using a needle and remain in place for around six months to 1 year. Novathreads are a minimally invasive alternative to facelift surgery, and they can provide patients with long-lasting results with minimal downtime.
The treatment does not hurt as the doctor administers a local anesthetic at both the entry and exit points. The doctor will then utilize a delicate needle, as mentioned above, to insert the threads. You might experience some pressure with no pain. Depending on your needs, this process should last about 20 minutes to an hour.
There is no downtime with Novathreads treatment. However, you. May experience some swelling, bruising, and redness. This is why you should schedule your appointment before the weekend to give yourself some time to heal.
Nova threads offer a number of benefits over traditional facelift surgeries, including reduced inflammation and a shorter healing time. In addition, the absorbable nature of the threads reduces the risk of infection and the need for removal. Nova threads are an effective and safer option compared to surgery.
