How Does NovaThreads Work?

NovaThreads procedure can help in lifting sagging skin on the neck in a safe, minimally invasive manner. The procedure will tighten the loose neck tissue while simultaneously promoting the production of new collagen fibers in deeper tissue layers for longer lasting outcomes.

Fresh collagen enhances the skin’s volume over a period enabling the neck skin to appear smoother, firmer and more elastic. The NovaThreads procedure involves the placement of medical grade, absorbable sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO) in the deeper tissue. These sutures are precisely inserted into the sagging regions of the neck.

The natural collagen scaffolding that is created with this technique allows the patient’s neck and jaw skin to appear firmer and more lifted. Though the body will naturally reabsorb the threads in around 4 to 6 months, the neck skin will remain taut and youthful for up to 2 years or more.


NovaThreads skin tightening can be performed in almost any region of the body for a suitable candidate. However, the outcomes in the neck area are outstanding with this procedure. The procedure begins with the provider carefully inserting the NovaThreads needles into the treatment areas of the neck skin as a whole needle.

The needle will reach the interstitial tissue at a sub-dermal level in the neck. This will remain parallel to the upper skin surface to produce an optimal outcome. Subsequently, the provider will carefully pull the needle out while leaving the PDO thread behind beneath the skin. The body will gradually absorb the PDO suture.

The process of absorption will prompt the skin’s internal repair system leading to the production of new collagen over this duration. Consequently, the patient will attain a slight lift in the tissue of the neck, while the outer appearance of the neck becomes tauter and smoother.

Advantages of NovaThreads

Outcomes with NovaThreads neck lift procedure are almost instantaneous. The patient can experience neck skin that is more lifted and firm for 1 to 2 years easily. The outcomes continue to improve over time and appear even more natural due to the production of new collagen fibers that this procedure triggers.

The procedure does not involve any incisions or cuts. Therefore, it does not cause scars or scar tissue. The procedure avoids all the risks typically associated with a plastic surgery and involves minimal to no downtime.
