Do you feel as if the early signs of aging have stolen away your youthful appearance, but the idea of undergoing an invasive surgery like a facelift isn’t very appealing? At Balikian Facial Plastic Surgery, we understand the need to look and feel your best, but we also know that invasive surgical procedures aren’t for everyone. Thanks to NovaThreads, however, you can achieve the youthful look you desire without a long period of downtime.
Our providers will thread thin, dissolvable sutures underneath the skin to grip the underlying tissue and pull lightly pull the tissue. Once inserted, the wire will trigger the body’s healing response, causing it to fill the treatment area with collagen to lift the sagging skin and restore elasticity to the face.
The NovaThread procedure consists of two techniques known as NuMesh and NuLift. NuMesh involves creating a mesh under the skin (similar to the #hashtag symbol or a net) that will serve as a foundation for collagen production. The method allows the skin to tighten naturally, from within, which produces natural-looking results.
NuLift is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. This method involves gripping the underlying skin and pulling it in 1 or 2 different directions to create instant skin repositioning. It will also trigger the body’s healing response and stimulate the production of collagen.
Are There Any Risks to Using NovaThreads?
A thread lift is a safe and effective alternative to traditional facelift surgery that’s considered a low-risk procedure. Some side-effects of using NovaThreads include bruising, swelling, and discomfort in the injection site. There is also a small chance of infection and a pulling sensation where the threads have been inserted. That’s why it is important to do your research and only work with a reputable medical practice who you can trust. Our Aesthetic injectors have your best interests in mind and will perform the procedure with the utmost attention to detail and unmatched care.
