If you desire a more youthful, natural-looking appearance, Dr. Alkadri can help you look as young as you feel without the need of surgery or extensive downtime with NovaThreads®, an innovative new thread lift method to lift sagging skin and replenish your facial features.
WHAT IS A NOVATHREADS LIFT?
The NovaThread Lift is an innovative product that amplifies your body’s own rejuvenating powers. NovaThreads are essentially needles that come pre-loaded with what’s called a PDO suture. These sutures, originally developed for heart surgery, are completely absorbable. Because they are pre-loaded into needles, it means that the procedure consists mainly of just a few injections.
Over time, the PDO suture breaks down—but as it does so, it creates lift, structure, and encourages your body to start producing collagen. This collagen production happens because your body reacts modestly to the sutures, kick-starting a “selective inflammatory response” that is then harnessed as a natural rejuvenation process.

AM I A NOVATHREAD CANDIDATE?
Ideal NovaThread candidates are generally healthy and have reasonable expectations for the outcome of their procedure. Those with sagging facial skin, or those who would like to delay the signs of aging in the brow, cheek, jowls, and neck areas are also good candidates. A consultation with Dr. Alkadri is required to determine whether the NovaThread Lift procedure is a good match for you.
NOVATHREAD LIFT PROCEDURE
During the procedure, NovaThreads are injected into the treatment areas, similar to dermal fillers. There are no incisions involved in this procedure, though a small poke is needed to insert the threads into the skin. NovaThreads are inserted parallel to the surface of the skin. Once inserted, the thread will remain in place to lift tissues for six to 12 months.

NovaThread Lift procedures an excellent way to restore the youthful-looking “V” shape to your jawline. There is no downtime required, though some bruising may occur. Patients can expect to see immediate results in their face, though full results take a few weeks to appear.
