NovaThreads are a great way to tighten sagging skin, reduce wrinkling, and create new collagen, and they can be used almost anywhere on the body.

Using the same material used in cardiac surgeries, NovaThreads are hypodermic needles preloaded with a synthetic absorbable suture that is inserted into the skin.

After NovaThreads are inserted, your skin gently reacts to the sutures creating a selective inflammatory response to produce collagen and strengthen the skin. This is the principle behind many other aesthetic procedures, such as fractioned lasers, skin tightening treatments and microneedling.

Your skin will fully absorb the NovaThreads within 4 to 6 months of being inserted and the new collagen that was created will be left in its place. Skin remains tightened with less wrinkling and improved elasticity.
