NovaThread Facelift vs Liquid Facelift- Which One is the Best Non-surgical Facelift option?


Best Non-Surgical Facelift Options

In the past, facelifts were a major surgical procedure that required extensive downtime and questionable results. Today, however, there are many non-surgical facelift options that are available, and depending on the needs and wants of the patient, the results can be as subtle or as dramatic as they want it to be. Let’s take a look at some of the best non-surgical facelift options so you can determine which one is right for you.

Liquid Facelift

A liquid facelift is a revolutionary non-surgical facelift option that we are pleased to offer to qualified patients. Put simply, a liquid facelift is a process by which Botox and dermal fillers are injected into the face for a variety of reasons:

  • To reduce the appearance of wrinkles
  • To increase the appearance of fullness in the face
  • Subtly “lift” the midface/cheek area, reduce nasolabial folds and marionette lines

Liquid facelifts are semi-permanent.

The results are achieved with a combination of FDA-approved dermal fillers to “fill and lift” and BOTOX to strategically relax expressive muscles for non-surgical “eyelift” and soften other expressive wrinkles.

By contrast, a threadlift with traditional threads or NovaThreads is more effective for subtly lifting the cheeks and improving jawline and nasolabial folds. This non-surgical facelift procedure is designed to reduce sagging around the cheeks and the jawline. Usually performed in less than an hour, with local anesthesia, a threadlift involves making tiny incisions with a needle on the face, through which threads are then inserted with blunt cannulas. These threads are then pulled, which gives the face a “lift” and makes it appear less saggy and more “lifted”.

Novathreads from the UK are the newest advancement in non-surgical cosmetic medicine and considered safer than the traditional threads which required a more invasive insertion technique and remained in the face indefinitely. The NovaThreads are absorbable sutures that come in three types for insertion into the face; the “barbed” threads are used for lifting, the “twist” threads are used to add volume to reduce deep wrinkles such as the nasolabial folds and marionette lines, and the “smooth” threads are used to improve fine lines and texture. Dr. Malik uses a combination of NovaThreads for your non-surgical facelift, jawline lift and non-surgical eyelift.

Liquid Facelift Vs NovaThread Facelift

The most important features of the liquid facelift and the NovaThread facelift are:

  • The NovaThread facelift is about as invasive as the liquid facelift with Botox and dermal fillers — which is to say that it is minimally so.
  • The results from NovaThread facelift last about the same as the liquid facelift… for about 12 to 18 months.
  • The NovaThread facelift is often combined with the liquid facelift with Botox and other injectable fillers to create a “3-D ” facial rejuvenation.
