What is a Thread Lift?
At Rinnova Skin & Body, we have both the Silhouette InstaLift and Nova Threads. After your consultation, your provider will create a customized treatment plan using one of these options for Thread Lift.
Silhouette InstaLift is a minimally-invasive solution to lift sagging skin without major surgery. The sutures are made from glycolide/L-lactide (PGLA), a polymer that is frequently used in medical devices and is well tolerated by the body. The fully absorbable sutures and cones lift and reposition the skin.
NovaThreads is a cosmetic facial rejuvenation procedure using FDA Approved polydioxanone sutures, (used safely for decades in surgery) to lift, tighten, firm and smooth your skin.
NovaThreads perform lifting and volumizing by generating new collagen and enabling your skin care professional to lift and mold sagging skin into a more youthful position.
The results are instant, improve with time, can last for years, leave no scars, and best of all they are a true “injectable” and a wonderful alternative, (or adjunct) to surgical procedures as well as other skin rejuvenation treatments!

Thread Lift has been around in Europe and Asia for about 10 years and due their overwhelming popularity, were introduced to the US market, where the demand for non surgical procedures is soaring.
Why Choose Thread Lift Over A Surgical Face Lift?
There are many factors that will help you determine what’s right for you when it comes to looking and feeling younger. So ask yourself the following questions:
Do I want surgery? Do I want scars for life? Do I have 2-3 weeks recovery time? Do I want people to see a dramatically new me, or do I want something a bit more subtle, but noticeable?
Depending on how you answer these questions, you may want to consider a consultation for Thread Lift. Contact us to find out if you are a good candidate, and together let’s explore your options for a younger, fresher you.
How Long Do Results Last After Thread Lift Compared To A Surgical Face Lift?
Silhouette InstaLift is a unique technology using absorbable sutures which stimulate collagen renewal to achieve a lasting, natural look. The results last for 12 to 18 months. NovaThreads are an injectable, directional skin firming option. The Threads are completely absorbed by your body in 6 to 12 months and results typically last longer. A surgical face lifts typically lasts about 5 years.
With Thread Lift the up front cost is significantly lower, and you can always come back in a year or two to refresh your results. With a surgical facelift you may not be able to have more than one because of scar tissue created during the first surgery.
Is There Downtime After Thread Lift?
There is little to no social or professional downtime after Thread Lift. There is no need for pain medications or antibiotics. You may have some minor bruising and discomfort, but with a bit of makeup no one will ever know!
How Do They Work?
Both NovaThreads and the Silhouette Instalift stimulate your body to build collagen in the area where the thread is placed. Over a few months the thread is absorbed by the body, but the collagen produced remains in place providing volume and lift that last and last!
How Long Do The Results Last?
The duration of the result depends on the area treated and the number and type of threads used. Treatment of lines around the mouth (smokers lines), volumization for fine lines and lip enhancement can last 3-6 months, while lifting treatments for the brow, neck and lower face can last between 1 & 2 years.
