What to expect with a NovaThreads lift at LJCSC
We perform NovaThreads treatments in our LJCSC office treatment rooms. Appointments typically last between 30 and 60 minutes, depending on how many threads we are placing. Prior to treatment we will numb the area with lidocaine, a mild, local anesthetic. This will keep you comfortable throughout your treatment, and wear off in the hours afterward.
We will select the appropriate NovaThreads style for your needs:
- Barbed threads are used to lift the skin
- Smooth threads are used to build collagen and smooth skin
- Twisted or coiled threads care excellent for smoothing wrinkles or enhancing the lips
All types of NovaThreads come in varying thicknesses, so we will select the size and shape that will achieve the desired effect while ensuring it cannot be seen under your skin.
Following your treatment, you can return to your normal day right away. We will ask that you not rub your face or do any vigorous exercise for the first 1 to 2 days. And of course, the best part is that your results are noticeable right away!
How long do NovaThreads last?
The lifting effects from NovaThreads typically last between 6 and 12 months, after your body naturally absorbs the PDO material in the threads and collagen production starts to slow again. If you wish to maintain your results, you can repeat treatment.

Take your BOTOX, filler, or skin tightening treatment to the next level
NovaThreads are especially awesome when performed in conjunction with BOTOX and fillers or other skin-tightening treatments.
While your BOTOX and filler injections plump the skin and smooth lines and wrinkles, your NovaThreads provide a more youthful foundation by lifting the underlying tissues—it really is like a non-surgical facelift!
When used in tandem with skin-tightening treatments like Ultherapy or ThermiSmooth, your NovaThreads provide the instant results you want, while the collagen building power of the energy-based treatments follow through with long-lasting, natural skin remodeling.
How much does a NovaThreads thread lift cost?
The typical NovaThreads thread lift costs between $1,500 and $3,000 at LJCSC. Your total cost will depend on the number of NovaThreads needed to treat your areas of concern and achieve a satisfying result. We will provide a personalized fee quote at your free consultation.

The “instant facelift” option with no incisions, no visible scars, and immediate results
So you’re starting to notice signs of aging like jowls, sagging skin on your neck, or deepening nasolabial folds. You need a little more help than fillers can provide, but you’re not ready for facelift surgery. Have you considered a thread lift?
If not, we encourage you to reconsider—because thread lifts are totally different (and infinitely better) today than what was available in the past.
Introducing NovaThreads: safe, simple, and absorbable PDO threads
NovaThreads are an FDA approved product made from polydioxanone (PDO), a substance that your body can naturally break down and safely absorb without forming scar tissue. In fact, PDO threads have been used for close to 30 years in the medical field, known as a safe suturing option for delicate procedures like heart surgery.
NovaThreads are specially designed to be used in aesthetic medicine to lift and contour sagging skin. Threads are inserted using a small needle, where they sit beneath the skin, helping to lift and add structure to aging tissues. But that’s not all—while NovaThreads are in your skin, they trigger natural collagen production, helping your skin become naturally firmer, smoother, and stronger.
NovaThreads absorb in about 4 to 6 months, but the extra collagen stays for long-lasting improvements.
