The Novathread procedure is actually quite a simple one. First, the area will be numbed with local anesthetic so you won’t feel any pain. Then, the threads are inserted under the skin, and depending on the specific technique you and your doctor choose, the procedure will vary slightly.
The first technique name, known as NuLift, uses barbed threads to reposition the skin. The threads lift the skin up and cause the selective inflammatory response that establishes more firmness in the affected area.
The other technique is known as NuMesh, which creates mesh scaffolding under the skin. The PDO sutures are placed vertically and horizontally on each side of the face, and they boost collagen production and skin firmness.
Regardless of which technique is used, no cuts or incisions are necessary. The needles are preloaded with a PDO thread that is simply and smoothly inserted into the face. The needle is then pulled out, with the thread remaining in the skin.
