Quickly Lift, Smooth and Contour

Eminence Medical Aesthetics offers PDO threads (by NovaThreads) in Princeton, NJ. NovaThreads are the most advanced absorbable threads on the market and offer a truly non-surgical facelift that can enhance and take years of your appearance! With this exciting aesthetic treatment the clinician uses temporary, absorbable sutures to suspend facial or neck skin back slightly in order to produce a visible “lift” safely and effectively. In addition to lifting the skin, threads also promote the body’s healing response, causing it to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas. As a result PDO Threads can lift your skin, smooth fine lines/wrinkles, define your jawline, raise your brows and more.

With PDO Threads there is no scarring and only the possibility of minor swelling/bruising post treatment, making it a much less risky option than a traditional surgical facelift. Results are immediate and continue to enhance as the body heals and produces more collagen around the treated sites. One treatment is generally sufficient to achieve desired results and treatment can be repeated yearly, if needed.
