Lifting spirits and faces!

February 23, 2018

Sagging face and neck have you down in the dumps? Radiant Touch Laser Center may have the solution! If you are in your late 30’s to early 60’s with fairly good skin tone but are beginning to sag around the neck and face, a Nova Thread Lift may be just what the doctor ordered! The Nova Thread Lift is a nonsurgical facelift that safely and instantly lifts and tightens loose skin on your face, neck, and body with only minimal downtime.

Designed to combat facial sagging and other early signs of aging, a thread facelift is a nonsurgical alternative to an invasive facelift. The procedure takes less than an hour and often does not require anesthesia.  Ultra thin sterile threads are inserted just below the surface of your skin through minuscule incisions. Once the threads attach to your tissue, they are gently pulled back to lift and smooth your skin. The effect is immediate and impactful – your “lifted” skin no longer sags and your face is rejuvenated.

The less invasive nature of the thread lift procedure produces many benefits:

  • No surgery
  • No pain
  • Virtually no scarring
  • Natural results for your neck and face
  • Virtually no downtime
  • Shorter recovery

Expected Results

Nova threads can be inserted nearly anywhere in your body, but they are particularly effective for your jawline and neck, areas that are challenging to effectively treat with Botox or dermal fillers. You’ll notice the effects almost immediately, but they won’t fully be revealed for at least one to two weeks, once any swelling and bruising recede. However, improvement should continue over the next several months as your skin ramps up collagen production even more to add fullness and volume.

Possible Side Effects

Although a Nova Thread Lift is nonsurgical, because it uses a needle (or multiple needles, depending on the extent of your procedure), you should watch for several side effects, as you would with any such procedure, such as temporary redness swelling, bruising, and tender or sensitive skin. Fortunately, if you’re like most patients, any side effects you experience should be mild and temporary, resolving themselves within a few days to a week.
