Ready for an uplifting experience? NovaThreads® in Marin County, CA are a minimally-invasive solution for smoothing, lifting or tightening skin on the face, neck and other areas of the body to achieve a younger-looking appearance without surgery or extensive downtime.
NovaThreads are made of polydioxanone (PDO), a surgical suture used in cardiothoracic surgery that is considered to be one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. Fully dissolvable, these threads provide an immediate effect, but continue to provide benefits long after the threads dissolve by stimulating the skin’s natural healing response, spurring healthy new collagen and elastin growth.
We offer three types of NovaThreads in Mill Valley, CA:
• Smooth Threads: for stimulating collagen and elastin while tightening.
• Twist Threads: provide same benefits as Smooth Threads while also filling in wrinkles.
• Barb Threads: provide same benefits as Smooth Threads while also lifting and smoothing sagging skin.

• Smoother, younger-looking skin on the face and neck

FAQs: Thread Lifts in Mill Valley, CA
What happens during a thread lift?
NovaThreads are hypodermic needles pre-loaded with a PDO thread. We gently insert the needle so that is parallel to the surface of the skin, and then remove the needle, leaving the thread behind. The thread remains in position under the skin to provide an immediate effect while also stimulating new collagen production for long-lasting benefits in the months following treatment.
Are NovaThreads painful?
NovaThreads are well tolerated. You may experience a tugging and pulling sensation, but this feeling is normal and temporary. The Barb thread is the only type that requires numbing before treatment. We will take every precaution to ensure your comfort throughout treatment.
What are the side effects of a NovaThreads?
NovaThreads involve injecting the skin with needles, which can cause swelling, bruising and pinpoint bleeding. We will work with you to diminish side effects, including the application of cool packs to your treatment areas.
How long do the results last?
Thread lifts can provide 12 to 18 months of rejuvenation.
How long does a NovaThread treatment take?
Depending on how many threads are used, the procedure can take anywhere from 10 to 45 minutes.
