Are you looking for a non-invasive way to lift sagging cheeks or jowls? Often, this issue is just prevalent enough to be visible, but not drastic enough to require surgery. Fortunately, an easy, non-invasive solution is available: NovaLift. NovaLift restores volume and fullness to the face quickly and with little downtime.
What is a NovaLift?
NovaLift involves the insertion of threads made of polydiaxone (PDO) into the desired areas on the face. PDO sutures are popular in Europe and Asia and are just now making their way to the US. The material is completely safe and breaks down within the body over 4-6 months. During that time, it promotes collagen generation, which extends your results up to one year.
There are two ways to insert PDO threads to achieve maximum effect:
- Mesh: PDO threads can form a mesh beneath the skin which reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
- Straight lines: Your physician can also implant a series of barbed threads in straight lines. This arrangement promotes a more drastic uplifting of the facial structure, especially the chin, cheeks, and jowls.
Collagen is produced along the length of the threads, achieving the same effect as fillers but using your body’s natural healing ability.
