While it happens to everyone, aging is a uniquely personal affair, affecting all of us quite differently, which is why my aesthetic medical practice offers a variety of options for turning back the clock.
I’ve recently expanded my skin rejuvenation menu with NovaThreads®, or thread lifts. NovaThreads are hypodermic needles pre-loaded with surgical sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO), a fully-dissolved surgical thread used in cardiothoracic surgery. Often called thread lifts, NovaThreads are gently inserted under the skin to help restore lost volume, provide an uplift to sagging skin, or smooth lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, chest and body.
NovaThreads come in three types: Smooth Threads tighten skin while stimulating new collagen and elastin growth, Twist Threads help to replenish lost volume and Barb Threads help to gently uplift sagging skin, such as jowls. All threads dissolve within 4 months after insertion but continue to stimulate the body’s natural healing response to provide age-defying improvements for up to 18 months per treatment.
If you’re craving a younger look but not crazy about the idea of getting Botox® or dermal fillers, NovaThreads is an exciting option because it works with your body’s natural healing response to provide lasting benefits.
