Are you experiencing visible signs of aging with sagging around the cheeks, jawline, and neck? Are you looking to enhance the effects of your facelift or achieve subtle results that do not require recovery time? Dr. Constance Barone is now offering cutting-edge NovaThreadstechnology as part of a comprehensive suite of anti-aging services at her San Antonio, TX, practice. Dr. Barone combines this treatment with other procedures such as BOTOX® Cosmetic and dermal fillers to custom-craft treatment plans that help patients achieve smoother and younger-looking skin.
How NovaThreads Work
The natural aging process can take an evident toll on our face as our facial structure weakens and our skin loses elasticity. These effects can lead to sagging skin in various areas. NovaThreads are an innovative treatment that use polydioxanone (PDO) absorbable threads to lift and smooth loose skin. PDO sutures are generally used in cardiothoracic surgeries and are one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body because they do not leave any scarring. Today, these sutures can also be used for cosmetic procedures. In this procedure, the advanced threads are inserted into the treatment sites using a small hollow needle, without the need for surgery.
The threads attach to the deeper layer of skin tissues. Your body will naturally begin to heal itself, dissolving the thread. As this process continues, your natural collagen production can increase, which can create a lifting effect. Certain types of NovaThreads also come with specialized noduls that can pull or lift the skin, providing you with an immediate cosmetic improvement. Your full results should be visible in about four to six months time and can last for over a year. Patients can also undergo retreatment every six to eight months for more significant, lasting effects.
While NovaThreads are primarily used for non-surgical procedures on the face as shown in this video, they can also be applied to other parts of the body. This treatment is particularly effective in the neck and jawline area. Specialized threads can also be used to enhance the shape and volume of your lips. Many patients will combine NovaThreads therapy with other procedures such as injectables, including BOTOX® Cosmetic, dermal fillers, and laser skin treatments. Combined, these procedures can provide a completely rejuvenated appearance without the need for surgery or downtime.
Dr. Barone is once again an inovator for surgical options and is the first plastic surgeon to offer NovaThreads in the San Andonio area.
Benefits of Treatment
The greatest benefit of NovaThreads is that patients can see a noticeable difference in their appearance with only a short, non-invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia. You can achieve a more youthful look without scarring and without any downtime, as the entire procedure is done with local anesthetic. Your results can also continue to improve with time as the skin produces more collagen to heal itself.
NovaThreads treatment is also a step forward in cosmetic procedures because patients are not locked with the same results for a long time. The treatment can be redone in six to eight months as the threads are completely absorbed by the body. In addition, compared to facelifts, the thread lift procedure can be a more economical option for rejuvenating your appearance.
