If you’re seeking the perks of a facelift without surgical incisions, steep price or downtime, NovaThreads® may be the perfect treatment for you. Dr. Liliana Manrique of NewEra Medical Aesthetics and Laser Center has over 10 years of experience, first performing this skin tightening procedure in Europe before being the very first physician to bring this revolutionary procedure to the Washington, DC metropolitan area. Dr. Manrique performs this minimally invasive, innovative procedure at her practice in Vienna, Virginia, serving patients in the surrounding Tysons Corner and Washington, DC areas. You could be 45 minutes away from more radiant, youthful skin.
More about the service
NovaThreads are hypodermic needles that contain a PDO (polydioxanone) absorbable suture, used in the NovaLift procedure. PDO stimulates the collagen and it provides support to the skin. These sutures, used to perform surgeries such as open heart surgery, are one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
While NovaLift and PDO thread are not new, Dr. Manrique is the first physician to use PDO NovaThreads® in the Washington, DC area. The technique was developed by Korean physicians and has since become popular in Europe.
NovaThreads lift soft tissues in the face and neck in a simple in-office, noninvasive procedure. During your treatment, the threads are inserted in your skin with a needle, then pulled out. The threads then stay under your skin, where they stimulate your skin to create collagen. Your skin fully absorbs the threads within 4-6 months, leaving no scar tissue.
Most areas of your face, neck, and even abdomen can be treated with NovaThreads. In some cases, results appear immediately.
You may experience mild discomfort during your NovaThreads treatment. Thanks to Dr. Manrique’s gentle technique, many patients report feeling less discomfort than they have during dermal filler injections.
Dr. Manrique customizes each NovaThreads treatment based on your goals, health history, age, and desired treatment areas. After a thorough exam and consultation, she’ll determine the best course of treatment.
Results of NovaThreads treatment typically last 9-15 months, depending on the number of threads used and the area treated. While you’ll likely notice results sooner, maximum results usually appear within 4 months.
