No need to go under the knife! Dr. Mash Introduces NOVA THREADS...

A beautiful and healthy face has a "V-shape." But with the aging of tissues and the action of gravity, this "V-shape" gets lost. The idea behind the Nova-Lift technique is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the "V-shape", or where necessary, to delicately lift the tissues and reposition the skin to recreate the "V-shape" where it’s been lost.

Although NOVA THREADS can be inserted / injected almost anywhere, one particular area that was missing a non-surgical procedure is the area of the jaw & the neck. With Nova threads, Dr. Mash is able to restore your youthful sculpted jawline without cuts or incisions. NovaThreads are needles that are pre-loaded with a "PDO" thread. Dr. Mash simply inserts a needleat subdermal level, parallel to the surface of the skin, & pulls the needle out. The nova thread remains under the skin.

Thread lifts are extremely low risk, thanks to how noninvasive they are. There is virtually no risk of scarring, severe bruising, bleeding, or other complications after having a thread lift. In rare cases, patients may experience irritation, infection, or their sutures becoming visible under their skin. If this occurs, however, the sutures can simply be removed and the patient’s face will return to its prior state.

Nova threads are sutures that are made from a biocompatible material called PDO, which has been specially designed for safe re-absorption by the body. Nova threads remain in place for about four to six months, after which point they slowly dissolve. Patients can, however, expect to keep seeing the results of their Nova thread lift for a year or more after their treatment. This long-lasting effect arises from the lingering improvement in skin condition that results from collagen infusion.
