Are you searching for a TruSculpt treatment? Perhaps you need facial plastic surgery? If you're looking for a New York NovaThreads specialist, don't hesitate to contact Dr. Pastorek. His clinic specializes in facial plastic surgery, and skincare treatments and procedures. They can carry out procedures such as laser genesis, TruSculpt, chin augmentation, facial plastic surgery, face and neck lifts, and NovaThreads in New York, NY. 

What Are NovaThreads? 

NovaThreads are threads, also known as sutures, that are placed under the skin on your face during a thread facelift procedure. The threads can absorb and lift facial tissue. This creates a solid foundation and can help to change the shape of your face. Once the threads are inserted, they will encourage your skin to enhance collagen production. This will help to reduce wrinkles and other signs of aging and will increase the elasticity of the skin. 

Marionette lines, wrinkles around the eyes, nasolabial folds, and laugh lines can all be successfully treated using NovaThreads. This treatment can also be used to lift sagging skin on the neck or around the jawline. NovaThreading procedures will be carried out by a dermatologic surgeon or a plastic surgeon. 

The materials used in NovaThreads have been created using a synthetic and biodegradable material, so there's no need to have the threads removed after you've seen the desired results. The threads are made from polydioxanone (PDO). This is the same material that's used in surgical sutures. 

How Does A NovaThread Treatment Work? 

During a NovaThread treatment, a hypodermic needle will be loaded with the PDO threads. The doctor will then insert these needles into your skin. Needles are put in at an angle that's parallel to the skin”s surface, and once they are removed, the threads are left behind. 

Over time, the threads will dissolve, and this allows collagen to grow in their place. This takes between four to six months. After having a NovaThread treatment, the skin will be lifted immediately, and skin elasticity, as well as firmness, will increase over time. 

What Are The Benefits Of NovaThreads? 

If you choose to have a NovaThread treatment, you'll find that it’s quick and more straightforward then other types of facelifts. Each thread only takes the doctor a minute to put in place. 

NovaThreads are dissolvable, which makes them less risky than other procedures where a permanent suture is used. There is, therefore, less risk of an infection developing. 

NovaThreads are an excellent choice as they are less expensive than a facelift, and the procedure is also less invasive. 

What Are The Disadvantages Of NovaThreads? 

Having a NovaThread lift is a good choice if you don't want to have a facelift. However, the threads only slightly lift the skin and may not be able to achieve your desired results. Many people are expecting results from NovaThreads that can only be achieved during a facelift, and are then left disappointed. A surgical facelift is more effective as it will tighten up the muscles in the face, and the plastic surgeon can remove any excess skin. 

Another disadvantage of NovaThreads is that the results are only temporary. The lifting effect only lasts for about six months after the initial procedure, and the threads will have dissolved. However, many patients report that they have firmer and less wrinkled skin for up to a year after treatment.
