So you’re starting to notice signs of aging such as 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. And you couldn’t make a better choice for your treatment; La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa was named a 2020 top NovaThreads thread lift provider in San Diego, CA.

What Are NovaThreads?

NovaThreads are an FDA-cleared product made in the USA 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.

Take Your BOTOX®, Filler, or Skin Tightening Treatment to the Next Level

NovaThreads are especially awesome when performed in conjunction with BOTOX, dermal fillers like JUVÉDERM®, 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.

What to Expect at Your NovaThreads Appointment

We perform NovaThreads treatments in our LJC 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.

What Is NovaThreads Recovery Like?

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.
