NovaThread helps your skin produce more collagen, elevating sagging skin and reversing signs of aging. Threads are quick and easy — a great nonsurgical lift for your face, neck and jawline. They’re a terrific alternative to injections and give you an instant lift with subtle results.


A beautiful and healthy face has a “V-shape”. With the aging process and gravity this “V-shape” diminishes or inverts. The idea is to either create a scaffolding in order to support the tissues and keep them in the “V-shape” or when necessary to delicately lift the tissues and repostition the skin to recreate the “V-Shape” where it’s been lost.


Although Novathread’s can be inserted almost anywhere, one area that is especially effective is the neck and jaw line. The lower third of the face is challenging to treat effectively with Botox or Injectable Fillers alone, but with the Novathread procedure you now have another safe and effective way to address areas of concern.

What are NovaThread or PDO Threads?

Novathread’s are hypodermic needles preloaded with and absorbable PDO suture. PDO stands for Polydioxanone. It’s a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone. PDO sutures are used to perform cardiothoracic surgery (such as open heart surgery). It’s one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body. Your skin fully absorbs the thread within 4 to 6 months and won’t leave you with any scar tissue. But will help the body create new collagen naturally.

How does NovaThread or PDO Threads work?

Controlled Healing: In medical terms “Selective Inflammatory Response”, it is the principle behind a lot of aesthetic procedures such as Fractional Laser, Chemical peels, & MicroNeedling.   Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting Novathreads we make it “heal” itself by creating new collagen naturally.

What is the NovaThread or PDO Threads procedure?

There are two types of procedures with Novathreads. The first one consists of creating a mesh under the skin. This mesh will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production. This technique tightens the skin naturally from within.  The other technique is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The Novathread sutures provide grip underneath the skin, allowing the provider to create an instant skin repositioning. Again the skin will then build new collagen to secure the lift.

Silhouette Instalift

Everyone arrives at that age where you pass by a mirror and don’t see the energetic or youthful reflection you once saw. Things like drooping skin, volume loss, fine lines and wrinkles can discourage self-confidence, and the many people who have issues with these problems also want to avoid surgery. We are pleased to offer an “in-between.” The Silhouette InstaLift is not a surgical procedure, yet it can give you the lift you need for facial rejuvenation.


The Silhouette Instalift is a minimally invasive, non-surgical lift that can be used to improve the appearance of sagging skin on the face and neck. The procedure involves the placement of absorbable threads beneath the skin, which are then used to lift and support areas of lax tissue. The threads are made from a material that is slowly broken down by the body over time, and results from the treatment typically last between 12 and 18 months. The Silhouette Instalift can be an effective alternative to more invasive procedures such as a facelift, and can provide patients with a more youthful appearance without the need for extensive recovery time.

What is Silhouette Instalife?

Silhouette InstaLift is a suspension suture that lifts the deeper layers of your skin for a more youthful appearance. The Silhouette InstaLift is a facial re-contouring procedure that requires local anesthesia and little downtime. What makes Silhouette InstaLift unique is the ongoing production of collagen that it instigates. It doesn’t just lift; it regenerates youthful-looking skin.

Who is a good candidate for Silhouette Instalife?

A good candidate for an instalift would be someone not ready for a facelift but needs more lifting provided by facial fillers.

What can Instalife improve?

This minimally invasive procedure is intended for the correction of mid-face sagging. The strategic placement of suture material suspends the tissue along the cheeks. As a result of mid-face lifting, the jaw line also improves.

How does Silhouette Instalife work?

The in-office procedure is performed after careful evaluation and planning. Before your treatment, we will discuss your concerns and how the Silhouette InstaLift can ease them. The procedure itself involves the placement of an absorbable suture or string.

Can Silhouette Instalift be combined with other procedures?

Surgical facelift treatment is sometimes combined with other procedures, such as fat grafting or dermal fillers. Facelift surgery only lifts and tightens the skin over skeletal structure. It does nothing to restore naturally lost volume as we age.
The Silhouette InstaLift achieves two objectives:

  • Immediately lifts the skin in the midface
  • Supports the ongoing production of collagen for long term improvements
  • As collagen is restored, volume in the midface is restored. For this reason, it may not be necessary for InstaLift patients to combine this procedure with other treatments.

How soon will I see results?

Immediate results with minimal downtime. Silhouette InstaLift acts in the subcutaneous tissue and stimulates fibroblast activation and the gradual production of Type I and Type III collagen. Silhouette InstaLift sutures are made from material that is well known and has been used for more than 30 years in several biomedical and pharmaceutical applications. Some patients might experience moderate bruising for 2-3 days.

How long will Silhouette InstaLift results last?

The InstaLift rebuilds the foundation on which youthful skin sits. Every patient may notice varying results in terms of the degree of lifting and longevity of results. On average, the skin remains tighter and smoother for up to 18 months. Learn more about the Silhouette InstaLift, and discover if this treatment is right for you. Let us take care of your skin.
