Non-surgical Necklift – How is it Done and Am I a Candidate?

Non-surgical Necklift with NovaThreads:

NovaThreads are PDO absorbable sutures FDA-approved for insertion into the skin. The “barb” threads are used for a subtle instant lift or Nu-lyft to the face, eyelids, and neck. The “twist” and “smooth” threads are placed in the skin as a mesh, the Nu-mesh, for a gradual improvement of deep wrinkles, skin firmness, and texture.

Who is a candidate for NovaThread Necklift?

NovaThread non-surgical necklift is a treatment option for those with:

  • Mild sagging of skin under the chin

  • Mild to moderate “necklace lines” or deep skin folds

  • Mild to moderate thinning of the neck skin

More advanced sagging of neck skin needs to be addressed with surgical lift.

What Type of NovaThread Sutures are Used for Non-surgical Necklift?

For necklift, we use one or more types of NovaThread sutures depending on the individual neck skin aging.

  • The smooth sutures are used as Nu-mesh for improvement of skin texture, firmness and density over a period of weeks to months following insertion via collagen induction.

  • The “twist” sutures are placed in the necklace lines and deep folds for improvement in deep wrinkles and collagen induction in the weeks following the treatment.

  • The “barbed” sutures are placed for subtle immediate lift followed by gradual improvement in skin lifting by way of collagen induction.

Does it Hurt?

There is minimal discomfort from the treatment because we numb the treatment area with a topical numbing creme for twist and smooth sutures and with injection lidocaine for barbed sutures.

Is There Any Downtime?

There is mild swelling and occasionally some bruising, both can be minimized with the use of ice packs and arnica. We recommend to stop all NSAIDS, vitamin E, fish oil supplements 7 days before your treatment and to avoid alcohol intake for 5 days before your treatment to reduce swelling and bruising.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

We recommend doing the non-surgical necklift as a two-part treatment. Initial treatment is followed by evaluation and touch up treatment at six weeks for best results.

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results of the NovaThread Non-surgical Necklift last from 12-18 months depending on your lifestyle, genetics, and individual aging.

What is the Cost of NovaThread Necklift?

The first treatment costs between $760 -$1135, the 6-week touch costs from $205 and up depending on the number of additional sutures needed.
