Instant Facelift and Skin Tightening
Face is aesthetically the most prominent part of the body, and the onset of aging signs will appear more conspicuously on the face. Although facelift plastic surgery can restore a youthful looking face but many people want to avoid a major invasive procedure for various reasons. For such candidates NovaThreads instant facelift and skin tightening offers a viable, non-surgical alternative.
The procedure is particularly effective for the lower third of the face, neck and jaw line. It involves almost no downtime and produces natural looking outcomes without any notable discomfort. Board certified plastic surgeons Dr. Burton Sundin and Dr. Reps Sundin provide NovaThreads to patients in Northern Virginia, Washington DC, Vienna, McLean, Loudoun, Ashburn, Tysons Corner, Reston, Arlington, Chevy Chase, Richmond, Fredricksburg, and surrounding locations.
What are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads is a unique facial rejuvenation treatment involving hypodermic needles that are preloaded with PDO absorbable sutures. PDO is a synthetic absorbable surgical suture made of polydioxanone. These sutures are often used to perform complex surgeries such as open heart surgery.
PDO is widely accepted in medical usage because it is one of the safest available materials to be implanted in the body. In about four to six months of the procedure, the skin will fully absorb the suture. Unlike facial plastic surgery, NovaThreads treatment will not result in the formation of any scar tissue.
How does it Work?
The procedure of NovaThreads facial rejuvenation leverages the body’s natural selective inflammatory response. Once the procedure is performed, it will stimulate this response for the skin to naturally repair itself. Once the provider has inserted NovaThreads into the affected areas of the face and neck, the generation of fresh collagen fibers will be induced in the deeper skin layers.
New collagen will add volume to the thinning areas of the face, smooth out the wrinkles and fine lines, and restore more youthful looking facial skin in a natural manner. The repair process of the skin will continue for about four to six months while the PDO suture gets gradually absorbed. This controlled healing occurs below the skin, creating more natural and sustainable outcomes.
This technique is designed to create a mesh below the skin. Two sutures are inserted vertically and three horizontally to create a mesh that is somewhat similar to a hashtag. The mesh under the skin becomes the foundation for the development of fresh collagen in the deeper layers of the skin, creating natural skin tightening from within.
Results with NovaLyft technique are relatively more dramatic. The ‘cogs’ in the PDO sutures provide a better grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted in a way that the provider can pull them in one or two directions. This allows for the creation of an instant skin repositioning in the treated area. New collagen production is triggered through this procedure, providing a subtle lift to the facial skin.
