NovaThread Treatments in Oak Brook
Beautiful, Natural Results & No Downtime
Face lifts are effective procedures, but if you are not interested in the discomfort or the recovery time, our Oak Brook plastic surgery team may have another option for you. NovaThreads are a remarkable new targeted lift treatment with no scalpels, no scarring, minimal discomfort, and next to no downtime.
There are several treatments areas for the NovaThread, including:
- Smile lines, smoker’s lines, and lip definition
- Around the jaw (jowls)
How NovaThread Works
Unlike thread lifts of old, which were permanent and imprecise, this new technology uses FDA-approved PDO (polydioxanone) sutures which are absorbed harmlessly into the body. These are the same types of sutures used in open heart surgery! The PDO sutures come pre-loaded into small, hollow needles and are then injected into the desired treatment area. From there, they function on a principle similar to chemical peels and microneedling, referred to as “selective inflammatory response.” This means that the presence of the threads stimulates the affected area to produce collagen, causing a visible increase in volume and smooths out wrinkles in the skin.
The threads themselves are broken down after about 4-6 months, but results can last from 12-18 months. Additionally, unlike a face lift, which lasts about 10-15 years but often cannot be repeated due to scar tissue build up, NovaThreads can be administered again when your results begin to fade.
