NovaThreads are a non-invasive treatment option to tighten loose or sagging skin. They are absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone, which are completely safe to be implanted into the body. When used in the body, these threads trigger the body’s natural healing response to stimulate collagen and elastin production to enhance the look and feel of the skin.
NovaThreads are available in three different thread forms including:
- Barbed threads: The unique nature of these sutures allow them to latch into tissues when implanted. This results in a noticeable lift to sagging skin, as the thread is actually physically pulling up skin for a more youthful appearance.
- Smooth threads: Like barbed threads, these sutures also stimulate elastin and collagen synthesis. Over time, this rejuvenates areas that have deflated or creased over time, providing patients with the more youthful look they desire.
- Twist threads: These threads are coiled and work best when inserted into facial folds or wrinkles. Collagen stimulation provides natural-looking, beautiful results over time.
Healthy individuals who are looking to treat lax areas of the face for a younger appearance can often benefit from NovaThreads. A consultation is needed through our Sunnyvale, CA office in order to discuss your health history as well as your anti-aging goals to determine if this treatment is right for you. Those who have an autoimmune disease, are pregnant or breastfeeding, have diabetes, or an infection in the treatment area should not receive NovaThreads. To schedule your consultation appointment, contact Skin Refine Medspa today!
During a NovaThreads treatment, lidocaine can be applied to the entry points for the threads to ensure patients are comfortable. The NovaThreads will then be expertly introduced into the skin through a very fine needle or cannula. Overall, treatment can take 30-45 minutes to complete.

Following the NovaThreads treatment, there is no downtime needed, so patients can feel free to return to their normal activities. Individuals may experience slight bruising or swelling in the treatment area, though this should dissipate over the next couple of days. Be sure to avoid rubbing the treatment area to ensure that you do not interfere with the position of the threads for the best possible results.
NovaThreads are fully absorbed within 4-6 months, and do not create scar tissue. Because the threads are technically a foreign body, it stimulates collagen production in the skin, helping results to last for 12-15 months.
