NovaThreads: The NovaThreads are blunt tipped cannulas pre-loaded with a PDO thread. We simply insert the whole cannula in the interstitial tissue at the subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, and leave the thread. The PDO thread remains under the skin. In medical terms Selective Inflammatory Response (SIR), it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures. Our skin is very good at mending itself, and by inserting NovaThreads, we make it repair itself by creating new collagen, naturally. Our skin gently reacts to the inserted PDO threads which are fully absorbable. It will take approximately 4 to 6 months to absorb the PDO suture; your skin is also repairing itself around it. Controlled healing is happening beneath the surface of your skin.

What should I expect for non-invasive skin tightening procedure?

Depending on treatment areas, our treatments are typically one to two hours. We will continually ask for patient feedback throughout the procedure to help balance both your comfort and maximum results.

What is the recovery time?

The maximum down time for our non-invasive skin tightening procedures would be 24 hours but most procedures have no down time at all.

When will I notice results?

In as little as one day, most patients can see and feel results. Continued improvements and contouring can happen for up to six months as your body regenerates collagen. Although a few patients show immediate improvement, response to treatment for most patients is gradual with progressive improvement over one to six months. 80-90% of patients show measurable and noticeable effects at six months.
