NovaThreads at Appearance Care Center are a revolutionary cosmetic treatment option for those looking to achieve a more youthful appearance. They provide an effective alternative to traditional cosmetic procedures such as Botox or chemical peels with minimal downtime or discomfort for the patient.

What Are NovaThreads?

NovaThreads utilize absorbable sutures made of dissolvable PDO material, which can be inserted beneath the skin to lift, tighten, and smooth the face to give it a more robust and youthful appearance. Patients report natural-looking results achieved in just a single appointment, leaving their friends and family wondering how they suddenly achieved such a remarkable transformation without surgery.

Why Do We Need NovaThreads?

As we age, collagen and elastin production slow down significantly, leading to changes in our skin’s appearance, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and folds. Collagen is essential for skin hydration and plumpness, while elastin is responsible for the elasticity of the skin.

Without collagen and elastin, the face begins to look saggy as collagen loss weakens the underlying structures that keep skin smooth. Unprotected sun exposure also plays a large role in the rate at which our faces age. The combination of protein production loss, UV radiation, and oxidative stress lead to an aged appearance.

How Do NovaThreads Work?

NovaThread combats that process by inserting absorbable threads into the skin, helping it reform collagen and elastin to help make your skin more thick and elastic and providing additional support to the underlying facial structure. The collagen-multiplication process reduces facial lines and skin sags, restoring natural collagen and elastin fibers to allow one to retain their beauty without the need for intensive and extensive surgery experiences.

Am I a Candidate for NovaThreads?

This gentle and minimally invasive treatment makes it an excellent choice for those looking for subtle changes with little to no downtime. Anyone interested in NovaThreads must have skin healthy enough to undergo the procedure. Certain preexisting conditions could cause hurdles, but you should always check with our office during your consultation to be sure. It is also essential to have realistic expectations for your results. Otherwise, you could be disappointed in what would otherwise be considered a successful treatment.

How Should I Prepare for NovaThread Treatments?

Preparing for a NovaThread treatment can be simple and stress-free. To begin, be sure to hydrate the day prior and the morning of treatment with your favorite beverage. On the morning of your treatment, avoid using any topical skincare products, as well as thoroughly wash off any existing makeup or oils.

It would be best if you also avoided sun exposure to any potential treatment areas in the days leading up to the procedure since it can cause unnecessary discomfort during and after the process. Please feel free to ask our office any questions you have so that you are informed about each step. This will make you feel well-prepared and confident on the day of your treatment.

What Should I Expect from a NovaThread Treatment?

The NovaThread procedure is a minimally-invasive treatment. To begin, your medical team will thoroughly clean the treatment area to help prevent infection. Then, your practitioner will make marks on your face by inserting specially designed threads under the skin to lift and resurface sagging tissues. These dissolvable threads are made from a biocompatible material that encourages natural collagen production and helps create a more youthful appearance without the need for surgery.

What Should I Expect from NovaThread Recovery?

Recovery from NovaThreads can be a surprisingly straightforward process, but the necessary steps must be carefully followed. After NovaThreads are inserted, patients should expect some mild tenderness and swelling in the treated area. Applying a cold compress can help reduce any discomfort and discoloration in the short term.

Within 48 hours of treatment, topical steroids or Arnica cream may be applied to reduce inflammation as well as to expedite healing time. Moreover, day-to-day activities such as exercising or going to work can be resumed immediately following the procedure.

To best promote the lasting effects of treatment and ensure optimal results, it’s essential to care for your skin during the recovery period correctly. Be sure to wear sunscreen and refrain from picking at the treated area for two weeks following treatment.

Can I Combine NovaThread with Other Treatments?

Combining NovaThreads with other cosmetic procedures, such as Botox and injectable fillers, can enhance the overall results of the treatment. Botox, a neuromodulator, can be used with NovaThreads to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines on the face. The combination of the two treatments can provide a more youthful and lifted appearance, with Botox relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles and NovaThreads lifting and tightening the skin.

Injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based products, can also be used in conjunction with NovaThreads. The fillers can be used to add volume to specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks or lips, while NovaThreads tightens and lifts the skin. This combination can provide a more youthful and refreshed appearance, with the fillers restoring volume and the NovaThreads providing lift and definition.

It’s important to note that the combination of these treatments should be performed by a qualified physician with experience in both procedures. They can help you determine the right combination of treatments to achieve your desired results and ensure that the treatments are performed safely and effectively. Your physician can also help you understand the potential risks and benefits of combining these treatments and help you make an informed decision.
