NovaThreads are a revolutionary non-surgical technique to enhance parts of the neck, chin, face and lips. There are three different types of NovaThreads that are designed for their own specific use including, threads for enhancement and/or volume and a thread for lifting. NovaThreads are completely absorbable to the body and studies have proven that they can last up to 2 years. Nova uses the most innovative dissolvable polydioxanone (PDO) material in their products to ensure comfortability. The NovaTwist and NovaSmooth are collagenesis, meaning they help build collagen in the treated area, while NovaBarb lifts to help give you the definition you desire.
NovaSmooth is an absorbable PDO thread that helps deliver a subtle volume increase in the lips, face, and jaw. The NovaSmooth is a collagenesis that can be repeated 1 month apart and last up to 6 months.
NovaTwist will garner the most volume and definition in the lips, nasolabial folds, marionette lines and other parts of the face. This absorbable PDO thread helps to build collagen and lasts anywhere between 4-6 months.
NovaBarb is an absorbable PDO thread that helps to lift and suspend the neck, jaw, chin, cheek, brow and other areas of the face. This barbed suture works to lift and keep the skin and tissue in place and can last anywhere between 18-24 months.

Who is a candidate for NovaThreads?
If you have fine line and wrinkles in the forehead or crow’s feet in the corners of your eyelids and neuromodulators such as Botox® or Xeomin® won’t correct the issue, then you are a candidate for NovaSmooth or NovaTwist. Patients experiencing minimal lip volume and desire more definition are a candidate for NovaTwist and NovaSmooth. For subtle enhancements in other areas of the face including contouring of the nose, NovaTwist & NovaSmooth can correct these deficiencies. If you are experiencing age-related sagging or droopiness in the neck, chin, jaw, cheek or brow than you are a candidate for NovaBarb to lift and suspend.
The NovaThreads Treatment
A consultation and physical exam by a member of our clinical staff is the first step to your NovaThreads enhancement procedure. Once a member of our staff has declared you are a candidate, Dr. Tehrani or a PA will mark the treatable areas. Once the markings are complete, you will be administered numbing medication to ensure you are comfortable and feel no pain. Next, the doctor or PA will insert the NovaThread in the enhancement area. The thread will be positioned perfectly and in one twist the thread is in place and the non-surgical procedure is complete.
Recovery From NovaThreads
Recovery from NovaThreads is relatively brief with most patients returning to work and normal activates in 1-3 days. After NovaThread enhancement patients may experience swelling, redness, bruising or itching at the insertion site but these typically resolve within a week. Results take anywhere between 1-3 months as your body needs to build collagen in the area and the threads need to settle in place.
