Nova Thread FAQs

Nova Thread Treatment FAQs

What is Nova Mesh?


Nova Mesh, consists of creating a mesh under the skin (i.e. 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally). Sort of like a #hashtag, or a net. This Mesh will serve as the foundation for new collagen production. The Nova Mesh tightens the skin naturally from within. Results appear naturally, without any drastic change.

What is Nova Lyft?


Nova Lyft is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have “barbs” or “cogs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way as the Nova Mesh, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin repositioning. Just like the Nova Mesh, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the lift.

How do Nova Threads work?


There are no cuts or incisions with Nova Threads. 

The Nova Threads are needles that are pre-loaded with a PDO thread. Your physician simply inserts the whole needle in the interstitial tissue at subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, & pulls the needle out. 

The PDO thread remains under the skin and prompts your natural collagen rebuilding process.

How do Nova Threads help restore the V-Shape?

A beautiful and healthy face has a "V-shape." With the ageing of tissues and the action of gravity, this "V-shape" diminishes or inverts. The idea behind the Nova Mesh and the Nova Lyft 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 its been lost.

Where are Nova Threads most effective?


Although Nova Threads 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.
