*No Surgery, No Pain
*Uncontested for Neck and Jawline (but not limited to)
A beautiful and healthy face has a "V-shape". With the ageing of tissues and the action of gravity, this "V-shape" diminishes or inverts. The idea behind the NovaMesh and the NovaLyft technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the "V-shape" or where necessary to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it’s been lost.
What are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads are small, PDO absorbable sutures that are placed underneath the skin using a small needle. The nonsurgical technique provides immediate results for a noninvasive facelift or neck lift. Over the following four to six weeks, as the body’s healing process and collagen production is encouraged, the area is lifted and smoothed for long-lasting results.
What areas can benefit from a NovaThreads treatment?
NovaThreads can be used on most areas of the face and body, but provide exceptional results along the lower 1/3 of the face or neckline. NovaThreads are often utilized to improve the appearance of the eyebrows, sagging cheeks, Smoker’s Lines, Marionette Lines, and sagging jowls.
How long will my NovaThreads treatment take?
Each NovaThreads procedure at the Boston Center for Facial Rejuvenation will take from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area being treated and the technique used.
Am I a good candidate for the NovaThreads?
The best candidate for NovaThreads will have mild to moderate sagging tissue, ptosis, or crepey skin of the face and neck. NovaThreads is not recommended for patients allergic to lidocaine or epinephrine. Those with an active infection, cold, or rash should postpone their NovaThreads procedure.
When will I see my NovaThreads results?
Patients can see lifted tissues and tighter skin immediately after their NovaThreads session. As the body’s collagen increases, and the natural healing process begins, results will continue to improve. A repeat NovaThreads session will not be necessary for 9-12 months.
