Nova Threads

NovaThreads are a non-invasive treatment to help loose and sagging skin. A more detailed description is that they are absorbable surgical sutures composed of polydioxanone. These sutures have been used in cardiac surgeries for the past 60 years or more, and are the safest materials to be implanted in the body.

During the treatment, a preloaded needle is inserted into the skin. Your injector then leaves the thread beneath the skin when she removes the needle. Your skin gently reacts to the threads and begins repairing itself around the suture. The threads can be expertly placed to stimulate collagen in areas of volume loss or fill a fold, and also can be placed to pull and tighten the skin, such as that of the neck or brows. Over the next 4-6 months, your skin fully absorbs the threads and they won’t leave behind scar tissue.

To apply the chemical peel, a certified practitioner swabs the solution to the skin and lets it set. Within three days, the upper layer of the skin will start to shed. This process is much gentler to the skin and virtually painless, unlike facial peels of the past that literally burn the skin off. This makes the VI Peel much more patient friendly and good for all skin types.

Despite the gentle approach, the VI Peel is a very powerful acid containing salicylic acid, Retin A and vitamin A, which helps to soothe the skin while the solution achieves that deep penetration.

Within seven days, the results from the peel should be substantial, yielding improvements in skin tone, texture, age spots, acne and reducing wrinkles. In addition, patients should also notice a vibrant, healthy glow to their skin.

Theraplex salicylic acid facial peels offer a versatile, in-office surface peel that is also safe and effective on all skin types. Theraplex is a mild peel that doesn’t penetrate as deep. This peel is a great way to remove old, dead skin cells from the outer layers and promote the growth of new cells while rejuvenating your appearance. It also works well to treat acne.

This procedure takes about 15 minutes to complete and has virtually no down time and provide a convenient and inexpensive way to preserve that youthful shine and. This product is mild enough to be replied about every six weeks.

For patients interested in a chemical peel, please note that there should be some redness in the days following the treatment. During this time, avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. When going out, use a broad spectrum sunscreen and try to cleanse your face regularly.
