Nonsurgical NovaThreads Facelift - PDO Thread Lift Q&A

What is NovaThreads?

NovaThreads are a cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedure using FDA Approved polydioxanone (PDO) sutures, (used safely for decades in surgery). You may be wondering what the perks of NovaThreads are as opposed to a facelift or other cosmetic procedure. First and foremost, the results are instant and will continue improving 4-6 weeks after treatment as any swelling and bruising subsides. NovaThreads are the perfect choice for you if you’ve been thinking about softening/tightening your jawline, joules, cheekbones, chin, and neck. Our skilled injectors can place the threads almost anywhere we would use a filler, but instead of filling, they lift the skin! Another benefit to NovaThreads are the lasting results! 6-9 months after the body naturally metabolizes the threads, you will still maintain results for many months to come. This procedure is a wonderful alternative to clients who are looking for a “lifted” look, as opposed to a fuller look. Skin resurfacing treatments can be the solution for mild skin sagging as they could restore some degrees of skin firmness, but until recently surgery was the only way to remove loose skin!


How long does a PDO thread lift last?

The PDO thread lift reverses signs of aging and gives you a more youthful look. The results can last anywhere from 1-3 years. If you are looking for a non-surgical way to achieve firmer, younger-looking skin, a PDO thread lift may be the ideal fit for you.

How many sessions of PDO threads do I need?

Do You Need Multiple PDO Thread Lift Sessions Results? Generally, results can be visible with a single PDO thread lift treatment session. However, PDO Thread Lift experts may sometimes recommend more than one session within a few weeks for optimal results.

Can you feel threads in your face?

The body is biologically programmed to react this way when it senses any foreign object present within the dermis. Fortunately, because the threads placed under the skin during a thread lift are so small, the patient will not feel any of this happening.


What is the downtime for a thread lift?

The downtime after the PDO thread lift is quite short: around two to three days. Like with all procedures, there may be some bruising, swelling, or mild tension in the threaded areas. Recovery from the treatment is minimal, and you're often able to return to work the very same day.

Can you smile after PDO threads?

You can typically smile and perform normal facial expressions immediately after getting PDO threads. However, you may experience some discomfort or tightness in the jawline for the first few days after the procedure, which could temporarily affect your ability to smile or move your face.

Which areas can be treated with NovaThreads?

  • Eye brow lift
  • Wrinkles
  • Saggy cheeks
  • Smile lines
  • Saggy Jaw or Jowls
  • Chin lift
  • Lift border
  • Decolletage
  • Rm tightening
  • Thigh lift

Are Thread Lifts FDA-Cleared?

Threads are FDA-approved for suturing and are currently being evaluated for FDA approval for lifting.

Is General Anesthesia Required?

NovaThreads does not require general anesthesia. A local numbing medication called lidocaine is used to keep you comfortable during thread placement. At Cosmetic Injectables Center, we also have the option of laughing gas which makes the process a lot more comfortable. The analgesic effects dissipate quickly enough after the procedure that driving is allowed and is safe. We also have ice, numbing creams, and other gadgets that make the procedure comfortable even for those that are very sensitive. For patients that are anxiety-prone, an anxiolytic such as Ativan is also acceptable.

Can I Combine NovaThreads and fillers?

Combining NovaThreads with fillers is a fantastic idea. Fillers will restore volume that is lost as we age. The threads will work synergistically and amplify the “Liquid Face Lift” effect that facial fillers provide.
