Board-certified plastic surgeon Sean Doherty, MD is among the few physicians in the greater Boston area to offer the NovaThreads facelift treatment to clients in his downtown Boston and Brookline, MA locations.
This non-surgical treatment is the only FDA-approved PDO (polydioxanone) available for facial rejuvenation. The ultimate goal of the procedure is to stimulate the long-term production of collagen, all while supporting youth-enhancing facial contours.
“I’m so pleased to introduce my patients to this fantastic non-surgical facelift treatment,” says Dr. Doherty. “It’s a great alternative to the traditional treatments and for patients who will not have surgery. The procedure only takes about 45 minutes to perform, but it helps create a pleasantly youthful contour that helps address loss of facial volume.”
The NovaThreads procedure is an injection-based treatment. Needles are pre-loaded with varying types of PDO threads, which are then injected into the face following specific contours. The PDO threads act as scaffolding underneath the skin’s surface, which helps lift youthful contours while supporting long-term collagen production.
During the first four to six months directly after the treatment, the skin will start to rebuild itself around the PDO threads. This reaction is a good thing, as it helps support long-lasting results.
Results last anywhere from 12 to 15 months.
“Going forward, I plan on using PDO threads to achieve similar results in popular treatment areas, including the breasts, buttocks, and lower extremities,” Dr. Doherty adds.
