NOVAThread Lift Treatment

What is a NovaThread lift treatment?

For years, countless people have turned to surgical face-lifts to tighten their skin and alleviate the signs of aging. Though highly effective, these procedures come with extensive — and often painful — downtime. Dr. Sandhu sought a way to offer her patients an alternative.

She found it with NovaThreads. During this treatment, she places NovaThreads at strategic locations on your face, lifting and anchoring deeper layers of your skin for transformative results. This lift treatment can be applied wherever your skin needs it most, including the:

  • Brows
  • Neck
  • Cheeks
  • Jowls
  • Nasolabial folds
  • Lips

If you have an area where sagging skin is a problem, don’t hesitate to ask Dr. Sandhu if a NovaThread lift treatment could be right for you. 

How does a NovaThread lift treatment work?

The NovaThreads used during this treatment are made from polydioxanone (PDO), the same material used for surgical sutures. That means the NovaThreads safely dissolve in your skin over time and don’t create any scar tissue.

These threads are specifically designed to anchor themselves in your skin. When Dr. Sandhu inserts the thread into your skin using a very thin cannula, it gathers and lifts the tissue through which it passes. This gives you immediate results.

But the true impact of a NovaThread lift treatment comes with time. The insertion of the thread triggers your body’s collagen production processes. Collagen is the protein in your skin that keeps it taut, lifted, and elastic. By stimulating collagen production in the treated area, the NovaThread gives you a lifting, rejuvenating effect that can last up to two years, long after the thread itself has dissolved.  

What should I expect from the NovaThread lift treatment process?

Dr. Sandhu uses local anesthesia to ensure you’re comfortable during your treatment, which usually takes an hour or two. There is no downtime with this treatment, although you may have some tenderness and swelling in the treated area for a few days. 

You’ll see some results from your NovaThread lift treatment right away. Those results will continue to improve over the coming months as your skin builds a new network of collagen to support itself.
