Princeton Facial Plastic Surgeon Introduces NovaThreads to Practice

Dr. Eugenie Brunner announces a new non-surgical facial rejuvenation option is available at her practice. NovaThreads is an innovative treatment designed to lift and tighten the face and neck with lasting results.

PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 21, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Facial rejuvenation without the need for surgery is possible with the aid of NovaThreads, a minimally invasive treatment now available at Dr. Eugenie Brunner’s Central New Jersey facial plastic surgery practice. The thread lift technique uses absorbable sutures to lift, smooth, and refresh the face, neck, chin, and jawline.

NovaThreads is a non-surgical injectable treatment that uses dissolvable sutures comprised of PDO, polydioxanone, to lift, smooth, and tighten the skin in the targeted area. Dr. Brunner explains that PDO dissolvable sutures have been used in medical applications for many years with typically excellent outcomes. What makes this approach unique, she adds, is the NovaThreads create a mesh-like matrix beneath the skin, which serves as a foundation for new collagen to build upon, leading to more youthful-looking skin over time.

Dr. Brunner says NovaThreads can be used on the face and the body, and the most popular areas are the face, chin, jawline, and neck. Other benefits of this facelift alternative include:

  • Brief treatment
  • Minimal downtime and discomfort
  • Rapid recovery
  • Natural-looking results
  • Lasting benefits (from six to 12 months for most patients)

Since patient care is a priority for Dr. Brunner, she utilizes a local anesthetic to enhance comfort during the procedure. Several threads are placed via cannula, a small tube-like applicator, into the desired area of enhancement. Once placed, the patient can return home immediately and to normal activity the following day.

Dr. Brunner, an extensively trained Princeton facial plastic surgeon, says she utilizes this non-surgical approach for patients who are not ready for a facelift, neck lift, or another more aggressive operation. She says NovaThreads offer an alternative that provides noticeable yet natural effects for individuals with mild to moderate lines, wrinkles, inelasticity, and volume loss in the treatment area. NovaThreads can be used alone or with other non-surgical techniques for more comprehensive cosmetic improvement.
