Aging can make the effects of gravity more prominent on our faces, especially as we lose facial fat and our facial support structure weakens. You may find that your cheeks, jowls, and neck are affected by age and gravity and make your face appear older. Thread lifts can reverse these without having a patient go through an invasive procedure, giving instant results and lifting the cheeks, lips, jowls and neck. 


How Do Thread Lifts Work

Thread lifts can allow you to lift and contour the sagging tissues on your face, neck, and body without surgery. At Novique Medical Aesthetics, we use NovaThreads that immediately lift and tighten the skin to create a beautiful, contoured jawline. 

Prior to the procedure, a local anesthetic is administered to the treatment area. Then the treatment begins, using synthetic absorbable sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO). NovaThreads are needles that are loaded with PDO threads, which insert the sutures into the target site. They stimulate collagen production and lift the affected tissues.

PDO threads help redefine facial contours and induce collagen production. Stimulation reaches full effect about 3 months after treatment, once collagen has naturally formed around the thread.

Candidates for Thread Lifts in Doylestown, Pennsylvania

Interested in getting ThreadLifts at Novique Medical Aesthetics? You may be a good candidate for PDO Thread Lifts:

– If you want to improve the texture of any loose skin, including the neck area.

– If you’d like to correct facial drooping and tighten loose skin on your face and neck area.

– If you want to delay an aging face.

Patients treated with thread lifts often see improved lax skin on the face and neck, stronger facial muscles, and a subtle, natural restoration of youth. 

Thread lift treatments usually take anywhere between 45 and 60 minutes to complete. The treatment stimulates the body to produce inflammation which will build collagen in the area where the suture is placed. Over time, approximately 4-6 months, the suture is broken down by the body and the collagen that the body produced, providing lasting results.

Recovery from this minimally invasive procedure is simple and short. Patients can experience swelling and bruising for a few days. Patients can continue daily activities immediately after treatment but should avoid vigorous exercise for one week and facial massages for at least two weeks.
