The only thing disappointing about undergoing a facelift is the recovery time.
But now, NovaThread lifts can provide the same rejuvenating look without forcing a patient to miss two weeks or more from work.
What Are NovaThreads?
The best way to conceptualize a thread lift is to take a look at it in contrast with the traditional facelift.
Facelifts require heavy sedation and puts the patient under the knife to remove skin.
NovaThreads simply pull the skin back, tightening the face and stimulating collagen regrowth. No skin is being removed.
Instead, a pre-loaded needle inserts sutures (or threads) into the targeted area. These are made of polydioxanone and have been used on the surgery table for half a century.
In other words, completely safe! The procedure is FDA-approved.
In the areas that experienced the most loss of volume (usually around the neck and jawline) the skin naturally absorbs the suture over the next four-to-six months.
During this time, the skin is produces new collagen. It’s the lack of collagen in aging faces that results in less elasticity and more furrows.
It all takes less than an hour—about 45 minutes. And there are immediate results, quickly decreasing loose and saggy skin.
Are NovaThreads Better Than a Facelift?
After a facelift, the patient will need to be looked over around the clock for a whole three days. They will need a ride home. And they usually don’t return to work for a couple weeks.
Thread lifts are not as difficult. They are administered with local anesthesia. So patients can return to work that very same day.
The facelift does produce more significant results and more permanent ones. The procedure is best for those under the age of 55.
But prospects between 30 and 55 looking for correct mild to moderate signs of aging are best suited for a quick and easy thread lift.
Are NovaThreads and Silhouette InstaLift the Same?
While both procedures areFDA-approved and non-invasive, there are some differences between a Silhouette InstaLift and NovaThreads.
Silhouette InstaLift do provide a great “lift” to the cheeks and surrounding skin, but a major difference is that NovaThreads are designed to stimulate the collagen beneath the skin.
