Nova Threads are one of the very few treatments which can provide natural and immediate results to crepey skin.

Receiving Nova Threads begins with a consultation, where you'll be able to discuss your goals and decide with Practitioner Edwards on the best placement plan that matches your goals and budget. The practitioner may begin by cleansing your face, and a private ice pack will be provided to cool the area before treatment, this helps numb the area while reducing the likelihood of swelling or bruising. Afterward, the practitioner will ask you to lie down and get comfortable before guiding you through the procedure. Nova Threads are injected under the skin by small needles which are pre-loaded with the PDO thread. The needles are simply inserted into the subdermal level and run beneath the skin but parallel to it's surface.
The procedure for Nova Threads takes between 30 and 90 minutes depending on the number of threads and size of treatment area. After treatment you may experience slight bruising and/or swelling, though these side effects will usually dissipate in 5 days. There may also be tenderness at the areas where the threads were directly inserted. Often the treatment area will feel ‘tight’ and ‘prickly’ when moving the muscles in the face, however these sensations will also dissipate in 5-7 days. We offer complimentary Arnica and reusable icepacks to aid in the healing process.
