What is Thread Lift?
Nova Threads are absorbable threads (sutures) that are composed of a material called PDO. PDO sutures are surgical sutures that are also used to perform cardiac surgery. All sutures are FDA-approved and PDO sutures are one of the safest materials that can be used in the body. The threads can be used in different ways to create both lifting and rejuvenating effects in the skin by stimulating collagen production.
While the threads are underneath the skin, there is a reaction that creates a “selective inflammatory response” to produce collagen to create a longer-lasting result – a principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures such as fractional lasers, skin tightening treatments and microneedling. Our skin is excellent at repairing itself, and by placing the Nova Threads underneath the skin to lift the loose skin, the skin will heal itself by creating new collagen naturally!
The Silhouette Instalift is a little different from the Nova Threads. It is also done by using absorbable threads. However, the threads are different in that they contain absorbable sutures along with absorbable trumpet-shaped cones that are configured to grab, engage, and project tissue, allowing the sutures to create a long-lasting lifting and volumizing effect.
Safely and instantly lift up loose skin on the face, neck and the body. Threading is one the most effective ways to lift the loose skin without surgery.
