Utilizing PDO Threads
Face lifting is a procedure that has been in strong demand for a few decades now. However, every method seemed to have a certain type of flaw that affected results.
We make use Nova threads to treat deep nasolabial folds and marionette lines. They can also be used to get rid of troublesome lines on the neck and lip which are usually not responsive to being treated with fillers. When we're done with the procedure, you can expect the results to last for a period of time between 15 to 24 months after the sutures have been absorbed into the skin thereby creating a total effect for years. Thereafter, you can always come in for us to repeat the procedure if you like.
PDO Threads was started around the year 2010, a procedure that involved less risk than traditional facelifting, it was less invasive, and was much simpler. It was developed by surgeons who employed the use of PDO (polydioxanone) sutures by taking advantage of the incredible safety profile that this material had. Also, the PDO suture has been known to be very absorbable (the suture gets completely degraded in about 4 to 6 months by the body's immune system).
When in youth, you'll realize that your face is somewhat V-shaped. However, over time, the face gets converted to an A-shape as a result of the effects of age and the downward pull of gravity.
This is where you'll need the application of NOVA THREADS, NOVA MESH and NOVA LYFT, all of which are available at Bella MD Medical Spa, in Dallas TX.
Here at Bella MD our NovaThreads procedure will insert sutures into the face and by stimulating the synthesis and production of collagen, enhancing the volume, effective shaping, and careful lifting, they will provide an amazing and non-surgical method that will restore your face to the young and beautiful V-shape that it used to possess.
More on NovaThreads - PDO Threads
PDO material is a very strong and powerful collagen stimulant. It is the addition of this new collagen that provides the long-lasting lift or skin thickening of the Nova threads; a process that can last well up to 12 to 15 months.
We introduce the NOVA LYFT sutures into the skin in vectors through the punctures in the pinholes. As soon as they get introduced into the body, they begin to reshape the face by supporting and lifting the structures of the face that have begun to sag. This is how it helps to support the face and give it a straight and firm structure. Just like it is the case for a vast majority of the Nova threads.
The Nova Lyft sutures take a period of about 4 to 6 months in order to effectively absorb into the skin and at the end of the absorption period, they leave nothing behind other than new and softer tissues which have been strengthened by the action and effect collagen and elastin.
The lift and shaping effect that has been created with Nova lyft sutures have the ability to continue for an additional period of between 15 to 24 months, with the total effect lasting years. Thereafter, we can help you to repeat the procedure if you like and you can start all over again.
When multiple Nova threads are inserted into a hole under the skin, a "mesh" pattern (called a NOVA MESH) can be created in order to fill in the cheek hollows as well as other areas of facial volume loss. The Nova mesh acts as a temporary scaffold for the skin and in the course of that, it helps in stimulating the creation of collagen and some new soft tissue volume all around the thread network while they dissolve.
By doing this, the mesh eliminates volume loss and holds the skin firmly (so as to stay strong against the effects of aging and gravity's pull). As the Nova Mesh gets reabsorbed by the skin, it gradually and naturally enhances the process of regeneration of lost collagen, thereby creating and adding some definition of the features of your skin.
