Skin laxity is one of the key signs of facial aging. As the skin ages, youthful skin elasticity, thickness, and volume can diminish, causing skin and the deeper tissues to droop. FDA-approved NovaThreads® provides a non-surgical method for effectively counteracting skin laxity in many areas of the face and neck. NovaThreads® is an innovative, minimally invasive treatment that uses specialized dissolvable threads to provide customizable lift where it is needed. As an additional benefit, NovaThreads® stimulates the natural production of collagen fibers for results that can last approximately 18 to 24 months.NovaThreads® can be used to:
- Lift and smooth jowls
- Elevate sagging cheeks
- Reduce creases around the mouth and nose
- Smooth and lift skin along the neck
- Elevate a drooping brow line
Placing NovaThreads® is a relatively simple procedure performed with topical anesthetic to numb the skin during treatment. Our Medical Director Jeffrey A. Hunt, DO is extensively trained in NovaThreads® and can create an individualized treatment plan that meets your unique needs and goals. Often, patients choose to combine NovaThreads® with injectable treatments, like BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers, to treat additional wrinkles caused by overactive muscles and reduced volume.If you are interested in learning more about NovaThreads®, we encourage you to contact our practice to schedule a consultation with Dr. Hunt.
