Non-Surgical Skin Lifting in NYC

For many men and women, gravity and age are often considered their worst enemies. The resulting sagging skin and skin laxity can leave a person feeling self-conscious about their appearance and desperate to look like the youthful person he or she still feels like on the inside. NovaThreads® is a new, non-surgical procedure at New York City’s New Look New Life that is designed to lift areas of loose skin with immediate results.

What are NovaThreads®?

NovaThreads® are dissolvable PDO (polydioxanone) sutures that are non-surgically inserted beneath the skin to provide an immediate lifting effect. Within 4-6 months (*), the NovaThreads® are safely absorbed by your body’s natural processes. These sutures can be used in just about any area of the body that is experiencing some level of skin laxity, and is especially popular for treating the lower third of the face—an area of the face that other non-surgical treatments such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or fillers may not be best for.

Why choose NovaThreads®?

NovaThreads® are a great option for men and women in the New York area who are wanting the skin tightening benefits of procedures like a facelift, neck lift, or body contouring, but are not yet ready for invasive surgery or a recovery period.

Unlike other non-surgical treatments, results from NovaThreads® are immediately noticeable. As soon as your NovaThreads® treatment at New Look New Life is complete, your skin will look and feel firmer, tighter, and younger than before. At our Manhattan and Westchester offices, our highly trained team takes the time to work closely with each of our patients to ensure their results look completely natural and are unique to their specific goals and expectations.

With no surgery and little to no discomfort during treatment, you can come to our office on your lunch break, have your NovaThreads® treatments, and be back to work looking and feeling younger.

Is there any recovery associated with NovaThreads®?

There is no recovery associated with NovaThreads®. Patients can get right back to the hustle-and-bustle that is so common with a New York lifestyle. Local anesthesia may be used during your treatment to minimize any discomfort, but you will feel well enough to return to your normal schedule as soon as your treatment is completed.

How long do results last from NovaThreads®?

NovaThreads® uses PDO sutures which are naturally absorbed by your body after about 4-6 months (*). However, once NovaThreads® are inserted, your body is naturally healing around the sutures and creating new collagen. This production of new collagen helps your skin rebuild itself for ongoing benefits that will have you looking younger and feeling more confident.

Over time, you may choose to undergo additional treatments to maintain long-lasting results. NovaThreads® can also be combined with other non-surgical treatments to further enhance your overall appearance.

At New Look New Life, helping you achieve beautiful results with minimal time away from your busy life is our goal.
