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.

What Are the Benefits of NovaThreads?

There are so many benefits to enjoy with these innovative threads! Here are a few of the big ones:

  • Minimally invasive, in-office treatment
  • Local anesthetic only (lidocaine)
  • Noticeably lift and smooth sagging skin on the face and neck
  • Immediate results
  • Little to no downtime

What Is a PDO Nose Thread Lift?

A PDO nose thread lift is a nonsurgical rhinoplasty (“nonsurgical nose job”) approach that uses PDO threads to temporarily reshape the nose without surgery. This customizable technique can:

  • Straighten the bridge of the nose
  • Lift a drooping tip
  • Build out the radix (the top of the nose near the forehead)

Results from nose thread lifts typically last up to 2 years.

How Does the PDO Nose Thread Lift Work?

We use 4 to 8 threads (either barbed or specially designed nose threads) for this approach. When injected into the bridge or tip of your nose, the threads elevate and reposition the tissues to give your nose a straighter and more lifted look. While these threads will eventually dissolve, they stimulate extra collagen production to give you even longer-lasting results.

Am I a Candidate for a PDO Nose Thread Lift?

You may be a candidate for a nose thread lift if you are looking for minor nose corrections or don’t want to commit to surgical rhinoplasty just yet. You may also be a candidate for a liquid rhinoplasty or “filler nose job” with JUVÉDERM® VOLUMA™ XC. We’ll discuss all your options with you during your one-on-one consultation to determine the very best treatment plan for you.

If you have plans to have a surgical rhinoplasty done in the next 12 months following your thread lift, we recommend speaking to your surgeon first to make sure you will still qualify for surgery with your threads in place.

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.

Your Safety Is
Our #1 Priority

Since 1988, more than 36,000 patients have had safe, successful procedures at La Jolla Cosmetic Surgery Centre & Medical Spa.

How Much Does a NovaThreads Thread Lift Cost in San Diego, CA?
