Give Your Skin a Lift With NovaThreads

If you’re concerned about saggy, loose skin on your face, but you don’t want to get a facelift, you may be interested in an innovative procedure called a thread lift. Yes, you can give your skin a lift without surgery.

At New Image Med Spa, our knowledgeable double board-certified physician, Surinder Sandhu, MD, and our team here in Fremont, California offer NovaThreads as an effective alternative to invasive facelift surgery. In this blog, Dr. Sandhu shares more about the groundbreaking treatment and its benefits. 

What is a thread lift?

If you have saggy jowls or droopy, lackluster cheeks, it’s because your skin is losing collagen and elastin due to the aging process. During a NovaThreads procedure, Dr. Sandhu routes cosmetic sutures just under your skin to lift the tissues and stimulate collagen production to rejuvenate your appearance.

Dr. Sandhu can place the threads in your trouble areas, such as:

The threads are pulled tight to lift your skin and anchor it in place, giving you a more youthful look. They slowly dissolve over time, which promotes continuous collagen production.

What role does collagen play in my skin’s appearance?

Collagen is a protein that’s abundant throughout your body and keeps your tissues working properly. It’s responsible for your skin’s elasticity and firmness.

When you get a skin lift with NovaThreads, your body perceives the insertion of the threads as injuries, and it amps up collagen production to heal the wound. Collagen is vital for strong, pliant, soft, and flexible skin — the hallmarks of a youthful glow.

What are the benefits of thread lifts?

Dr. Sandhu frequently recommends thread lifts to her patients who want to improve their look without surgery because of this treatment’s numerous benefits, including that it:

In addition, a member of our team applies a topical anesthetic, so you only experience mild discomfort, if any at all. The needles are ultra-thin, and the procedure is well tolerated by most people.

Am I a good candidate for a thread lift?

Dr. Sandhu meets with you to examine your skin and make sure you’re a good candidate for NovaThreads. She discusses your goals and can answer any questions you may have.

You’re eligible for a thread lift if you’ve never had a traditional facelift — because it may have created excess scarring and could make the threading difficult or ineffective. If you have severe wrinkles or excessive loose skin, she may recommend other treatment options
