PDO THREAD LIFT (NovaThreads)
Collagen is the support that influences the condition of your skin. Collagen is used for wound healing and keeps skin supple. As you age, collagen is not produced as much, leading to a reduction in skin thickness. Loss of volume and strength creates creases and wrinkles. As skin grows weaker, gravity pulls your skin downwards and stretches it. Helping your face produce collagen helps reduce sagging skin and wrinkles.
NovaThreads are made of polydioxanone (PDO) thread material that incorporates a smooth, twist, or barbed technology. As these threads dissolve, they simultaneously stimulate new collagen production, fixating tissues in a more favorable position, and softening of wrinkles.
Threadlifts cause a gradual improvement in skin tone and firmness. While the threads are in place, the body’s healing response is activated, and collagen rushes to repair the wounds. The threads placed under the skin during a thread lift are so small you do not feel this happening, and most patients can not feel the sutures once they are implanted.
Recovery from thread lift procedures is easy. Threadlifts are performed under local anesthesia, and you can drive yourself home after treatment. You may experience a bit of soreness, redness, and swelling, but these side effects go away within a few days.
