If you have ever looked at before and after pictures of patients who have undergone a facelift, you probably think that the results are pretty impressive. In fact, a procedure like this can take many years off your appearance, and the results are long-lasting. However, there may be some things that cause you to feel nervous about getting a facelift. First, it is a surgical procedure, so it comes with a lot of downtime and commitment that not many people are ready for. If you would like to get the benefits of a facelift without the surgery, NovaThreads may be the answer. The experts at our medical spa are excited to provide this revolutionary new treatment to patients in Ft. Lauderdale.
The NovaThreads treatment is known as the non-surgical facelift. The process consists of inserting PDO threads into different areas of the face in order to lift and tighten areas such as the neck, jaw and cheeks. The hypodermic needles are preloaded with an absorbable suture. This means that after a period of typically four to six months, the threads will be absorbed by your body. They never have to be removed.
The sutures that are used are composed of polydioxanone. This material has been used extensively for years by general surgeons, orthopedic surgeons, cardiovascular surgeons and plastic surgeons. It is an extremely safe material. There are no scars left after the procedure, and about four months after they are inserted, they will be completely absorbed by your body.
So, why should you choose the NovaThreads treatment? You are able to receive many cosmetic benefits, especially if you are dealing with loose and sagging skin. Many people think that the threads are inserted to pull up the skin. However, that is not really the case. After the threads have been inserted, your skin will start to produce more collagen and elastin in response. These two substances are the basic building blocks of healthy skin. The NovaThreads treatment basically provides a framework in which more collagen and elastin can be produced. Even after the threads have been absorbed by your body, you will still have all the elastin and collagen that was produced around the threads. This will leave your skin looking healthier and firmer.
How long can you expect the NovaThreads treatment to last? While the threads themselves last for about four to six months after insertion, you can expect to see firmer, tighter skin for much longer. During your consultation, we will let you know more about what kind of results you can expect depending on your needs and the exact treatment you choose.
We offer treatment with NovaThreads in a couple of different forms here at Forever Young Med Spa. If you are in the Fort Lauderdale area and interested in learning more about this non-surgical facelift, contact our office in Cooper City today to schedule a consultation!
