WHAT IS A NOVA THREADLIFT?
The NovaThreadlift in LA and Beverly Hills is an innovative product that amplifies your body’s own rejuvenating powers. Nova threads are essentially needles that come pre-loaded with what’s called a PDO suture. These sutures, originally developed for heart surgery, are completely absorbable. Because they are pre-loaded into needles, it means that the procedure consists mainly of just a few injections.
Over time, the PDO suture breaks down—but as it does so, it creates lift, structure, and encourages your body to start producing collagen. This collagen production happens because your body reacts modestly to the sutures, kick-starting a “selective inflammatory response” that is then harnessed as a natural rejuvenation process.
NovaThread Lift procedure
During the procedure in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills, NovaThreads are injected into the treatment areas, similar to dermal fillers. There are no incisions involved in this procedure, though a small poke is needed to insert the threads into the skin. Novathreads are inserted parallel to the surface of the skin. Once inserted, the thread will remain in place to lift tissues for six to 12 months.
Am I a NovaThread candidate?
Ideal NovaThread candidates in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills are generally healthy and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of their procedure. Those with sagging facial skin or those who would like to delay the signs of aging in the brow, cheek, jowls, and neck areas are also good candidates. A consultation with Dr. Berger is required to determine whether the Nova Lift procedure is a good match for you.
