Loose or sagging skin in the neck can make a person appear older. Although neck lift plastic surgery procedure can effectively correct this condition, but many people want only a subtle neck enhancement without involving surgery. In such cases, a unique non-surgical procedure called NovaThreads may be successfully used to create a firmer and lifted neck appearance.
NovaThreads procedure is uncontested for non-surgical neck lift. The procedure involves no significant discomfort or downtime, and creates natural looking results. It may be ideally suited for working people, busy moms, and anyone else who wants to avoid the typical risks and complications associated with a neck lift surgical procedure.
MBody, led by board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin, provides NovaThreads for neck lift to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredericksburg, and surrounding locations.
Absorbable Non-Scar Material
NovaThreads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture. PDO refers to a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. These sutures are commonly used in advanced surgical procedures such as open heart surgery.
In the medical industry, these sutures are recognized as one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. The skin will fully absorb these sutures within four to six months. As a result, the patient will not be left with any scar tissue.
Neck Lift with NovaThreads
Although it is possible to insert NovaThreads nearly anywhere in the body for skin tightening, the one area where these are particularly effective is the neck. Neck and the lower third part of the face are areas that are challenging to treat effectively with dermal filler injections or with Botox.
These typical anti-aging techniques are more suited for the upper two-third of the face. That makes NovaThreads a treatment of choice for neck lift for people who want to avoid plastic surgery. NovaThread needles are simply inserted as a whole needle in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level in the neck, parallel to the surface of the skin.
Once inserted, the needle is pulled out, leaving the PDO thread under the skin. As the PDO suture takes about four to six months to get fully absorbed in the body, it triggers the skin’s natural healing mechanism, promotes new production of collagen fibers, and enables the neck tissue to achieve a subtle tightening and lift gradually over this period of time.
NovaThread procedure for neck lift can be performed using the NovaMesh technique or NovaLyft technique. NovaMesh technique will tighten the neck skin naturally from within, and the results will appear naturally, without any drastic change. NovaLyft, on the other hand, will produce more dramatic and immediate outcomes with instant skin repositioning.
New collagen fibers will be produced in both these techniques for more sustainable results.
