HOW DOES IT WORK?
By placing NOVATHREADS PDO sutures, the barbs pull the skin while it induces the skin to “heal” through new collagen creation. It is the same procedure used in many aesthetic procedures such as chemical peels and lasers.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Your skin will completely absorb the sutures in 4 to 6 months, and won’t leave you with any scar tissue. The sutures will continue to help build new collagen for up to 12 months.
IS THERE CUTTING OF THE SKIN?
No, NOVATHREADS is a non-surgical procedure with no cuts or incisions — only placement of the suture.
IS NOVATHREADS JUST FOR NECK LIFTS?
NOVATHREADS can be inserted almost anywhere, but is especially effective in the neck, jawline, and mid-face.
