NovaThreads® A Stitch in Time!

NovaThreads® are a New and Sensational Addition to the Aesthetic Medical Spa Line Up!

A youthful, healthy face has a “V-shape”. With the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts. NovaThreads® are used to create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape”, or to lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the “V-shape” where it’s been lost.

Nova 2

NovaThreads® meet a need in aesthetics in that they lift the soft tissues of the face and neck with a basic in-office procedure with essentially no downtime and with great results!

NovaThreads® are injectable subcutaneous dissolvable polydioxanone (PDO) threads used for non-surgical skin tightening and neocollagenesis (collagen boosting) of the face and neck. The threads are placed under the skin in different areas to achieve lifting of the cheeks, jowls and the neck bands. It achieves results instantly which last from 1 to 2 years, depending on the number of threads, their placement and on the patient’s skin laxity. The procedure may be repeated after 4-6 weeks for improved results.


Typically, a good candidate is in their 40s or 50s, however it all depends on the patient and their particular physiology and area of concern. Some patients require a second treatment, depending upon the extent of excessive tissue. A consultation to determine if someone is a good candidate for the procedure is always done prior to treatment.

These are unlike the previous “threads” on the market which were commonly known as a “thread lift”. Those threads were problematic in that they were permanent threads and were being misused as in some cases the patient actually needed a surgical face lift. Also, due to the permanency of the older threads there were issues with irregularity, extrusion and infection. These threads actually fell out of favor among aesthetic surgeons due to a host of reasons. NovaThreads® are completely dissolvable so they are dissolved from the skin and body entirely at 6 months but leave bands of new collagen that continue to lift.

NovaThreads® have been popular in many Asian and European countries for some time and can now benefit our patients at The G Spa in Santa Barbara!

We are excited to educate and share our knowledge and expertise! Please let us know if we can answer any of your questions on the NovaThreads® or any of the products or services at The G Spa Santa Barbara! Consultations are always free!
