Take your BOTOX, filler, or skin tightening treatment to the next level with NovaThreads
NovaThreads have a special talent: when performed as part of a comprehensive treatment plan with BOTOX, fillers and/or skin-tightening treatments, the effect is really just like a non-surgical facelift!
NovaThreads lift aging tissues beneath the skin, providing a more youthful foundation. BOTOX and filler injections plump the skin and smooth lines and wrinkles instantly, while popular skin-tightening treatments like Ultherapy or ThermiSmooth follow through with long-lasting collagen-building benefit. Talk about the ultimate trifecta for facial rejuvenation.
What is a NovaThreads treatment like at La Jolla Cosmetic Medical Spa?
NovaThreads can be placed in an hour or less, depending on how many threads you are receiving. Before treatment, we will provide a local anesthetic to numb the area, ensuring you stay comfortable during treatment.
Your provider will choose the appropriate NovaThreads style and thickness for your needs, always taking care to make sure the thread is invisible under the skin:
- Barbed threads lift the skin
- Smooth threads boost collagen and make skin smoother
- Twisted or coiled threads can smooth out wrinkles or enhance the lips
Is there any downtime after a thread lift?
There’s no downtime needed after a NovaThreads treatment! There are only two across-the-board restrictions: do not rub your face or do any hard exercise for the first 2 days after treatment. This ensures your NovaThreads settle in the correct position.
How long does a thread lift last?
With NovaThreads, maximum results usually last about 6 months, although your results should continue to look great for up to a year, or until collagen production starts to slow again. It’s easy to maintain your results—just repeat treatment! Because NovaThreads do not leave behind scar tissue, it’s safe to undergo treatment multiple times over the years.
