Visible face and body lift with threads, not the knife!

Forget about going under the knife and painful surgery with NovaThreads. A thread lift can give you the subtle yet visible body lift and face lift you want with minimal downtime. Loose skin is “lifted” with temporary sutures that stitch up portions of it. This pulls back skin, lifting and tightening. The threads provide an additional anti-aging benefit: they encourage the body’s healing response, prompting the body to concentrate collagen in treated areas (this is important in several aesthetic procedures: “controlled healing” or “selective inflammatory response”). At Johns Creek Dermatology we offer the best thread lifts using NovaThreads in Johns Creek North Atlanta.

A non-invasive and low-risk treatment, NovaThreads are absorbable polydioxanone surgical sutures. Having been successfully used for more than 60 years in cardiac surgeries, the safety of NovaThreads is a well-established fact. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved, NovaThreads lift, tighten, and smooth the face and other areas of the body.

Over time the face loses its attractive and youthful V-shape because of aging tissues and gravity. The Nova-Mesh and the Nova-Lift technique creates a scaffolding that supports tissues and maintains the V-shape, or alternatively gently lifts tissue and repositions the skin to recreate the V-shape. Thread lifts are ideal for individuals in their late 30s to early 50s who have mild to moderate skin laxity and also for older patients who can’t undergo surgery for medical reasons.

NovaThreads can be inserted or injected practically anywhere with a few exceptions. Treatment is done by inserting a preloaded needle into the skin and leaving the thread under the skin when the needle is removed. This prompts the skin to begin repairing itself around the suture. Offering immediate results, NovaThreads provides long-lasting effects. The thread needs 4 to 6 months to be completely absorbed by the body and during this time lots of collagen is produced. This provides ongoing and progressive rejuvenation for the facial tissues. There’s a noticeable gradual improvement in the tone and firmness of the skin. A thread lift usually lasts one to three years.
