Non-Invasive Thread Lift in NYC and Scarsdale can make you look younger without the knife!
A beautiful and healthy face has a "V-shape". With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this "V-shape" diminishes or inverts. The idea behind the NovaThread technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the "V-shape", or where necessary to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it’s been lost.
NovaThreads are fully dissolvable and is the critical feature that allows Dr. Greenberg to perform this non-surgical face lift procedure. NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. The PDO thread remains under the skin. During the 4 to 6 months needed to fully absorb the PDO suture, your skin is also repairing itself around it! It is "controlled healing" happening right underneath the skin!
In medical terms, "Selective Inflammatory Response” is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures (such as Chemical Peels & Microneedling). Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting NovaThreads we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally!
- Immediate results, threads cause slight lifting of the skin by pulling against gravity
- The threads cause controlled stimulation of collagen in the dermis resulting in gradual firming.
Neck & Jaw
Although NovaThreads can be inserted almost anywhere, one area where they are especially effective is the neck and jawline. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with botulinum toxin or injectable fillers, which are most effective in the upper and middle third of the face, respectively.
NovaThreads works with other procedures such as Fillers to address a patient’s entire facial structure and can also be combined with other treatments for skin tightening, remove sun spots or other conditions! For more information on combining NovaThreads with other Anti-Aging services, make an appointment for a free consultation with Dr. Greenberg.
