The human face is designed in a V-shape, but as you age and your skin stretches, it can turn into more of a U-shape. A facelift can help raise and tighten skin, but you might not want to have a surgical procedure.
Here at Eterna Vein & Medical Aesthetics in Puyallup, Washington, our experts can provide you with a nonsurgical facelift procedure called a “threadlift.” Eterna uses NovaThreadsⓇ to lift and tighten sagging skin, restoring your face’s shape and making you look years younger.
What are NovaThreads?
NovaThreads are tiny sutures made of FDA-approved polydioxanone, which is a material used for biomedical applications, such as cardiothoracic surgery. These threads can be fully absorbed by the body within 3-6 months and won’t create any scar tissue. The threads come preloaded in tiny sterile needles, so our experts can safely and swiftly insert them under your facial skin to provide lift and stability.
How do NovaThreads work?
The threads stimulate collagen production beneath the surface layer of skin, which allows the skin structure to be strengthened and supported. NovaThreads treatments can result in the lessening of sagging, and relieve fine lines and wrinkles for a smoother, younger look. A threadlift with NovaThreads can be used to lift your skin around the eyes, eyebrows, cheeks, jowls, and neck.
How long do NovaThreads results last?
NovaThreads themselves are gradually absorbed by the body, but the collagen produced as a reaction to them stays. This means the results of your NovaThreads treatment lasts well beyond the lifespan of the threads. Many patients can enjoy the results of their nonsurgical facelift for up to 12 months.
Our experts may recommend the use of fillers to enhance the effectiveness of NovaThreads. The fillers can help plump out any remaining signs of fine lines or wrinkles, making your whole face from browline to neckline look fresher and smoother.
In many cases, patients may benefit from Botox® for above the browline, dermal fillers for the area around the upper cheeks, nose, and mouth, and NovaThreads around the lower cheeks, jowls, and neck. This complete makeover can take years off of your appearance.
