NovaThreads are biocompatible, easily inserted sutures that give the facial skin an immediate non-surgical lift while simultaneously activating your body’s natural collagen and elastin production capabilities, for continued improvements to the health and contours of your face. NovaThreads can be an ideal alternative to the traditional facelift and are suitable for patients who want similar age-reversal benefits as a facelift but without the surgeries, incisions, or downtime. Results are likely to be less pronounced than a full or mini facelift, but will still dramatically improve the appearance of the face.

Benefits of NovaThreads for men

NovaThreads will help you:

  • Reshape your jaw
  • Reduce the appearance of jowls and skin laxity
  • Restore a more masculine contour to the face and jawline
  • Improve definition without downtime
  • Non-surgical procedure
  • Little to no recovery downtime required
  • No evidence of cosmetic work having been done

What are NovaThreads?

NovaThreads are sutures inserted into the skin of the face to give it a natural lift. Because the threads used physically lift your skin, initial results are immediate. Over time, as the body absorbs the sutures (which are fully biocompatible), the body is spurred into action to produce healthy collagen and elastin, which are two of the skin’s most important structural components. NovaThreads are one of the most advanced and effective thread lifts because they give your face an immediate lift while exhibiting brilliant absorption, making it highly safe and effective. A NovaThread treatment improves your skin texture, restores facial volume, and reduces wrinkles without scars or incisions. And the results last for 12 to 15 months.

How do NovaThreads work?

NovaThreads are absorbable PDO (polydioxanone) ) sutures. As the NovaThreads sutures are inserted in your skin’s interstitial tissues, their barbs hold your facial tissues together. The cosmetic surgeon moves the pre-threaded needle parallel to your skin’s surface and then eventually extracts it to pull the threads upwards. As NovaThreads are suspended, they also pull your skin upwards, giving you an immediate lift.

 

Polydioxanone is one of the most commonly-used materials in biological applications because it ensures complete absorption in 4 to 6 months, so there are no traces left behind in your body. As the polydioxanone sutures dissolve, they also activate your body’s collagen production response. The resultant collagen fibers act as structural frameworks to give your skin a natural lift. Over time, the NovaThreads get dissolved, but the new collagen fibers continue lifting your skin.

NovaThreads are an ideal non-surgical lift for men

NovaThreads are better than all other PDO threads because their in-built barbs give your facial tissues an immediate lift, so you don’t have to wait for the results to appear in a few weeks. They also get absorbed by your body with relative ease, leaving no trace or components behind, making them completely safe. The NovaThreads procedure concludes in a single in-office session with no downtime, allowing you to resume working the next day. All things considered, NovaThreads is the ideal non-surgical alternative to a traditional facelift.

Am I a suitable candidate for NovaThreads?

NovaThreads are usually very well suited to males who want to reverse the most common signs of facial aging including fine lines and wrinkles and skin laxity, without experiencing noticeable incisions, developing scars, or needing downtime. Dr. Craft will examine your facial skin and medical history to determine if you have any contraindications for the treatment. Most middle aged male patients will benefit from NovaThreads. 

What can men expect from the NovaThreads treatment?

During the NovaThreads treatment, you’re given local anesthesia to ensure you have a comfortable and pain free experience. Dr. Craft will insert the pre-threaded needles into your skin tissue and then run them parallel to your skin’s surface, ensuring your facial tissue is lifted and visually and aesthetically improved. As the needle is extracted, your facial skin is given an immediate lift.

The NovaThreads procedure for most males concludes with 30, following which you can return home. You may experience mild swelling, bruising, and localized redness, but these side effects rapidly subside. You may also intermittently apply ice packs to reduce the appearance of swelling. (Don’t apply ice packs directly to the skin, but use a cloth to prevent skin-to-ice contact.) You should keep your head elevated for the first 24 hours, but can resume most daily activities and work the day of or day after treatment.

What are NovaThreads results like for men?

Your skin will look considerably smoother, taughter, and more youthful immediately following treatment. Your skin will then continue improving as side-effects subside, and as your body starts naturally producing healthy collagen and elastin. Over time, the PDO threads will dissolve entirely and be replaced with collagen fibers, making your face look naturally even younger and smoother. The final results last as long as 12 to 15 months, longer than most other non-surgical facial lift treatments.
