NovaThreads | Ruidoso Medical Spa | NovaLyft | NovaMesh


Turning back the hands of time on your face doesn’t always require a scalpel. There is a non-surgical way to achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance through the use of NovaThreads. This FDA-approved procedure allows for the lifting, tightening, and smoothing of the skin with the use of PDO (polydioxanone) absorbable sutures. In as little as 30 minutes, you can rejuvenate your appearance without the downtime or scars associated with a traditional facelift. The NovaThreads procedure even allows us the flexibility to select different thread patterns depending on your specific aging concerns:

  • NovaMesh-Allows for tightening and smoothing of the skin from within with a mesh-like configuration of sutures serving as a foundation for the growth of new collagen.
  • NovaLyft-Produces more of a skin repositioning effect and will also help build new collagen to secure the lift.  

NovaThreads has brought back the use of face threads to rejuvenate the face with new, improved, and safety proven techniques and products. Dr. Stephen Rath is proud to be able to offer this procedure at the Fusion Medical Spa in Ruidoso, NM.  Although new to the US market, NovaThreads has been revolutionizing the cosmetic industry internationally for many years now. If you have been searching for a non-surgical way to give your face a little lift, NovaThreads could be the answer to help you get immediate results without scarring or surgery.   

The Benefits of NovaThreads

Surgical procedures often have a significant downtime (2-3 weeks), higher cost, and scars that are associated with them. NovaThreads offers a rejuvenating solution that allows you to circumvent these issues. The NovaThreads procedure uses threads that are introduced into the skin through needles, requiring local anesthesia only and little to no downtime afterwards. In less than an hour, the sutures can be placed and will stimulate your body to build collagen along those areas, returning the elasticity and firmness of a more youthful face. NovaThreads uses a PDO suture which offers the following advantages:

  • Stimulate collagen
  • Fully absorb in 4-6 months
  • Threads are removable
  • No scar or scar formation
  • Typically not felt under the skin
  • Results last 1-2 years

If you are looking for a natural-looking, youthful appearance that does not require surgery, ask us if you would be a good candidate for the NovaThreads procedure.
