NovaThreads in Berkeley & Dublin

Alternative to Surgical Facelifts

At NorCal Dermatology Group, we offer a non-invasive and non-surgical way to lift sagging skin and smooth out fine lines and wrinkles through NovaThreads! Treatment involves absorbable sutures placed under the skin on the face to help lift the underlying tissue. An alternative to a surgical facelift, NovaThreads help tighten the skin on the lower and midface, jawline, and neck to provide your face with a more youthful contour.

For more information, please call our Berkeley office (510) 330-2264, Dublin office (925) 241-4144, or contact us online today – we will be happy to assist you.

How Does Treatment with NovaThreads Work?

NovaThreads are made from PDO (polydioxanone), commonly used in cardiac surgery, and are proven to be extremely safe and effective when placed in the body. After the threads are administered to the skin by our board-certified dermatologist-led team, the threads will naturally absorb generally over between the next 4-6 months, with no scarring.

Your face will complimentarily react with the threads, working to repair damaged tissue and skin cells to produce more collagen for naturally youthful, glowing, and firm skin.

You may be a good candidate for this cosmetic treatment if you have any of the following conditions, including:

  • Sagging jawline
  • Lack of definition around the jaw
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Creases in the skin
  • Sagging cheek tissue
