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.
