Can NovaThreads Be the Non-Surgical Facial Procedure You’ve Been Looking For?

Face of a beautiful young-looking woman with perfect skin.

Many people would like to see a little lift in facial areas to shave off some aging, but they aren’t interested in surgery. NovaThreads can be the answer. Learn more about this incredible non-surgical facial procedure that takes years off your face.

What is Threading?

Threading is a popular, non-surgical way to eliminate wrinkles and sagging on your face and neckline. It’s used to target specific areas of your face, including the brow line, cheeks, mouth and nose, jowls and along the neckline. Threading uses tiny sutures, or threads, made of polydioxanone, or PDO. This type of suture is often used in cardiothoracic surgery because they dissolve completely without creating scar tissue. In addition, NovaThreads are the most advanced PDO threads on the market, which provides a high degree of trust among surgeons and their patients.

Threading works in three ways. First, the threads provide lift in the areas they are placed. Next, POD threading contracts the fat tissue, giving an immediate tightening to the skin. Finally, threading produces collagen, renewing your skin at the cellular level.

Types of NovaThreads

There are several types of NovaThreads, allowing your doctor to choose the perfect option based on your age, skin type, facial shape and health. This option also lets you know that your procedure is tailored to exactly the area of your face being threaded for optimal results.

The threads used will be barbed, smooth or braided threads. Barbed threads are used where dramatic results are desired, as they lift sagging skin and smooth wrinkles. Smooth and braided threads are best for deeper wrinkles under the skin’s surface and filling in lines.

At times, fillers may be used along with threading for maximum results.

Benefits of Threading as a Face Lift Alternative

Threading offers several benefits over a traditional facelift. In addition to being less invasive, threading requires less recovery time and immediate results and is more affordable than a facelift.

At Creative Facial Aesthetics, Dr. Maurice Khosh and his plastic surgery physician assistant Michele Rivard provide beautiful, professional threading services using NovaThreads. Call today to arrange an appointment to find out if threading is right for you.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
