Newest Addition at Glow Aesthetic Medicine!

NovaThreads is a cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedure using FDA Approved polydioxanone sutures, (used safely for decades in surgery) to lift, tighten, firm and smooth your skin.

NovaThreads perform lifting and volumizing by generating new collagen and enabling your skincare professional to lift and mold sagging skin into a more youthful position.

After becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in Asia and Europe NovaThreads have come to America so that you too can benefit from their amazing results!

The results are instant, improve with time, can last for years, leaving no scars, and best of all they are a true “injectable” and a wonderful alternative, (or adjunct) to surgical procedures as well as other skin rejuvenation treatments!

Dr. Patrick Carter, D.O. and the professional facial rejuvenation team at Glow Aesthetic Medicine are members of an elite family of practitioners trained and certified by some of the most experienced PDO thread practitioners in the business. NovaLift is one of our kept secrets to instantly looking younger, feeling more youthful, and making your significant other, friends and family say WOW!

NovaThreads are the latest facial rejuvenation treatment and one of the hottest trends in cosmetic surgery. It’s the perfect choice if you are looking for instant results, with little to no downtime.

In about an hour, your face will look instantly better with no scars and long-lasting results.

NovaThreads have been around in Europe and Asia for about 10 years and due to their overwhelming popularity, were introduced to the US market, where the demand for non-surgical procedures is soaring.

Novathreads are made from PDO (Polydioxanone) sutures, which fully absorb in 6 to 12 months, but produce results that last much longer.

Why choose novathreads over a surgical facelift?

There are many factors that will help you determine what’s right for you when it comes to looking and feeling younger. So ask yourself the following questions:

Do I want surgery? Do I want scars for life? Do I have 2-3 weeks of recovery time? Do I want people to see a dramatically new me, or do I want something a bit more subtle, but noticeable?

Depending on how you answer these questions, you may want to consider a consultation for NovaThreads. Contact us to find out if you are a good candidate, and together let’s explore your options for a younger, fresher you!

How long do results last after Inovathreads compared to a surgical facelift?

NovaThrerads are an injectable, directional skin firming option. The Threads are completely absorbed by your body in 6 to 12 months and results typically last a couple of years. A surgical facelift typically lasts about 5 years.

With NovaThreads the upfront cost is significantly lowered, and you can always come back in a year or two to refresh your results. With a surgical facelift, you may not be able to have more than one because of scar tissue created during the first surgery.

Is there downtime after NovaThreads?

There is little to no social or professional downtime after NoveThread injection. There is no need for pain medications or antibiotics. You may have some minor bruising and sometimes a face wrap is recommended to enhance the result, but the wrap is only for night time, and with a bit of makeup no one will ever know!

How do they work?

NovaThreads stimulate your body to build collagen in the area where the thread is placed. Over a few months, the thread is absorbed by the body, but the collagen produced remains in place providing volume and lift that last and last!

What are the types of threads?

Smooth threads are used for collagen stimulation to reduce fine lines and superficial wrinkles.

Looped threads provide instant volume and are typically used for better definition of the lip line, and for filling and lifting smile lines.

Barbed threads grasp and hold sagging skin to lift the skin up to a more youthful, Firmer position.

And because our team has received advanced training in the proper placement and positioning of NovaThreads you can be sure that whichever type is right for you, the result will be natural and spectacular!

How long do the results last?

The duration of the result depends on the area treated and the number of threads used. Treatment of lines around the mouth (smokers lines), volumization for fine lines and lip enhancement can last 3-6 months while lifting treatments for the brow, neck and lower face can last between 1 & 2 years.

Cosmetic & aesthetic treatments to choose from when you want to lift and smooth fine lines and wrinkles. And while an in-office consultation is the best way to determine exactly what’s right for here are the quick facts about NovaThreads.

PDO (polydioxanone) sutures, have been used in surgery for decades and have an unparalleled record for safety and efficacy.

These synthetic, absorbable threads are considered to be one of the safest materials ever implanted in the human body. This is an injectable treatment that requires no surgery, no incisions, and no downtime.

How Do NovaThreads Work?

Dr. Carter will select the right combination of syringes pre-loaded with the PDO threads, which are then carefully placed; either directionally to mold and lift sagging skin, or in a cross-hatch pattern to provide a strong infrastructure for skin improvement. This fights the visible signs of aging in two ways:

  • Immediate lifting: Fine lines and wrinkles are immediately lifted and smoothed for rejuvenation that you can see right away!
  • Increased collagen: Over a few months, the skin’s healing response produces younger, fresher collagen around the sutures for stronger, firmer, more flexible skin that looks younger and smoother even after the threads are absorbed safely by the body.
