What is NovaThread®?

NovaThread is a non-surgical, with almost no downtime, method to improve or lift practically any area on the face or body. With no cuts or incisions involved, NovaThreads are needles pre-loaded with a Polydioxanone (PDO) thread that is injected into the interstitial tissue at a subdermal level parallel to the skin and then pulled out leaving the PDO under the skin. The PDO stimulates the production of collagen and the skin structure created with the NovaThreads will hold for up to 12 months.

Dr. Terese Taylor, a board-certified family medicine physician, is here to offer the new procedure to you today! NovaThread is frequently used in many biomedical applications because of its ability to become fully absorbed in the body typically within 4-6 months, and it does not create any scar tissue.

NovaThreads specialize in improving the look of three main areas: the Lips/Jaw, the Neck, and the Cheeks. There are two different techniques for treatment, the Nova-Mesh, and the Nova-Lyft. The Nova-Mesh includes three quick and straightforward procedures. The Nova-Lyft procedure is simple and fast as well but does require more skills when using the unidirectional barbed threads, due to the bigger gauge of the needle used, and the deeper layer of insertion of the threads.

The first technique for the lips includes the Nova-Mesh method called the EZ-Lip Fill technique. This process involves a straightforward lip enhancement process using NOVATHREADS Smooth, which offers slight enhancement, and NOVATHREADS Twist, which adds a little more volume. Unlike fillers, there are no worries about injecting equivalent quantities, and as a result, the outcome is always symmetric. Usually, no anesthesia is required. However numbing cream is available, if necessary. The procedure itself is short, lasting only five minutes, with the results lasting up to 3 months.

The second technique uses the Nova-Lyft process called the EZ-Jaw Lyft to create a real tightening or “skin-repositioning” for the jaw. The jaw area uses unidirectional barbed threads (barb1) which produce the lyfting effect after taking a position within the skin, as well as after a massage following removal of the needle. The lyfting and repositioning effect always occurs in an upwards fashion, following the direction of the needle entry point.
