Discover Amazing Rejuvenation With The Revolutionary Thread Lift: Novalyft With Novathreads

The Novalyft with Novathreads is a minimally-invasive lunch time facelift that delivers powerful, natural-looking rejuvenation of the face, jawline, and neck in less than an hour! Novathreads lift sagging areas of skin on the face and neck by immediately tightening the tissues of the face and neck, but also by stimulating your body’s natural production of collagen. NovaThreads produce an instant face and neck lift visible immediately after the procedure. Then, the threads stimulate healing and collagen production deep within your skin—smoothing, tightening, and lifting the skin to improve and enhance your youthful and natural-looking appearance. So how does the Novalyft with NovaThreads work?

By careful placement of medical grade, absorbable sutures composed of polydioxanone (PDO) into the tissues of the face, the threads are used to immediately lift the sagging areas of the face and neck (Novalyft technique). The threads also recreate the natural scaffolding of collagen which keeps your face, jaw, and neck firm and lifted (Novamesh technique). Once the threads are placed, the results are immediately visible. The Novathreads continue to stimulate the production of new collagen strands, smoothing and tightening the skin naturally, from the inside out. While your body will safely reabsorb the threads within 6 months, your skin will maintain the fresh, youthful appearance for up to two years!

Novathread Options

This amazing instant facelift comes in two powerful options:


The sutures are inserted both horizontally and vertically to create a mesh- or net-like configuration to serve as a structural foundation for new collagen production; this option is ideal for patients seeking mild rejuvenation instead of a dramatic lift.


For patients seeking a more dramatic and immediate lift, NovaLyft utilizes “barbs” or “cogs” on the sutures to grip the tissues underneath the skin. The barbs deliver instant skin positioning, while new collage production secures the lift.

During your consultation with Dr. Sundin, we will discuss the benefits of both of these options and help you select the option that will work best with your facial anatomy and deliver the rejuvenating results you want!
