What is Collagen and Why It’s So Critical
If you think of your skin like the outside walls of your house, then collagen is the internal wooden structure underneath that holds it all up. When we’re young, the collagen in our skin is strong so your skin feels smooth, perky and tight. But as we age, not only does the collagen in our skin start to deteriorate but starting in middle age, our bodies produce less of it.
As you’ll see below, with Nova Threads, Sunnyvale patients can actually jump start their collagen production in specific, targeted areas.
What About Topical Creams with Collagen?
There are many types of creams and topical ointments out there that claim they can make your skin look younger by delivering collagen to your skin. But one of the problems with these types of treatments is that collagen molecules are so large, they can’t penetrate through the top layers of skin to get down to the lower layers where they’re actually used.
How They Work: Nova Threads
Sunnyvale patients who want to get younger, tighter and healthy-looking skin can get safe, long-lasting, and almost instant results with Nova Threads. Here’s how they work.
- Nova Threads are injected into your problem spots using a hypodermic needle.
- The “threads” themselves are made from an FDA-approved, absorbable suture (similar to stitches).
- As Dr. Sani removes the hypodermic needle from the skin, the suture gets left behind in the skin. Each treatment area gets several threads.
- Now, here’s where the “magic” starts. As the sutures are absorbed into your skin, they boost collagen production from the inside out.
How Soon Can I See Results with Nova Threads?
Sunnyvale patients will absorb the injected threads in 4 to 6 months.* But you will start to see results much sooner than that, and it depends on which Nova Thread option you use:
- NovaMesh or NuMesh – With this option, the results may take a little longer to appear.
- NovaLift or NuLift – The absorbable sutures used in the NovaLift or NuLift procedure have specialized barbs on them that Dr. Sani uses to instantly tighten the skin.
*Varies from patient to patient
This new, next generation treatment produces some of the safest and natural-looking results. Plus, since Nova Threads don’t require actually cutting the skin, patients can get a facelift without any surgery. Give us a call today at (408) 636-7101 to learn more.
