Here at the Miami Center for Dermatology, we are excited to introduce NovaThreads: our newest, non-surgical, aesthetic solution you have been searching for! New on the market as an alternative for Botox and Injectable Fillers, NovaThreads is attracting patients who are in need of a Soft Facelift in Kendall with a natural appearance.
These hypodermic needles are preloaded with a PDO absorbable suture, which is composed of polydioxanone. If you are hesitant about introducing these needles into your body, do not fear! Commonly used in open-heart surgery and other cardiothoracic procedures, PDO sutures are one of the safest materials that can be implanted in the body.
If scarring is a major concern of yours, you can put your mind at ease. Your skin will fully absorb these PDO sutures in approximately 4 to 6 months, leaving your skin free of any scar tissue.
You may be wondering how exactly this miracle solution works if no surgical methods are implemented. By utilizing the body’s Selective Inflammatory Response, or the skin’s ability to repair itself, NovaThreads are inserted and manipulated to induce a natural production of collagen.
The goal of this procedure is to ensure that your skin gently reacts to the inserted NovaThreads while absorbing the PDO. As your skin absorbs the PDO sutures during a 4 to 6 month period, repairing of the collagen will also be taking place.
It is incredible that a Soft Facelift in Kendall is possible through all of this repairing action that can take place underneath the skin with no cuts or incisions, purely injections!
The NovaMesh, or NuMesh, is a method of treatment that utilizes the NovaThreads in a net-like fashion, similar to a hashtag. 2 sutures are inserted vertically and 3 are inserted horizontally, creating a stable foundation for new collagen production. The number of insertions may vary based on your specific needs, but this method has shown to be successful in naturally tightening the skin from within. As opposed to other skin repair methods that may appear drastically, NuMesh will help achieve natural results.
An alternative method known as Novalyft, or NuLift, can be implemented to achieve a more immediate and dramatic result. The PDO sutures are inserted in the same manner, however this method contains sutures that have “barbs” or “cogs” that provide a more secure grip underneath the skin. These modified PDO sutures allow for instant skin repositioning, as they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions. Collagen will still be produced naturally, this strategy just modifies the process for patients who are in search of an instant lift.
Through the years, you may have noticed changes in the structure of your face. Some of these shifts may be minimal, but as tissues age and skin loses its elasticity, aging becomes more apparent. The key to achieving and maintaining a youthful appearance is to hone in on the natural V-shape of the face. With time, this V-shape becomes inverted and brings about wrinkles and lines.
Whether you decide that Nu-Mesh or Nu-Lift is right for you, both techniques will assist in lifting and repositioning key points of the skin to recreate that V-shape that you crave. Without the use of cuts or incisions, NovaThreads are one of the most effective, alternative face lift methods on the market. Dr. Longwill has implemented NovaThreads in her office in order to provide a way for her patients to experience a Soft Facelift in Kendall without undergoing surgery.
NovaThreads can be inserted virtually anywhere! Its needles, pre-loaded with PDO sutures, are inserted on site at the subdermal level, and then pulled in the desired direction. The simplicity of this procedure allows patients to address areas of their body like never before.
Areas that are commonly targeted with the use of NovaThreads include the neck and jawline. Luckily for our patients at the Miami Center for Dermatology, our experts are knowledgeable in how to properly utilize NovaThreads and fully reap its benefits in these problem areas. The use of injectable fillers can make treating the lower third of the face challenging. However, NovaThreads has made advancements in this field like never before. Our dermatologists now recommend NovaThreads to any patient hoping to treat this area of the face.
At the Miami Center for Dermatology, it is our goal to help you look and feel your best.

We firmly believe that the internet should be available and accessible to anyone, and are committed to providing a website that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.
To fulfill this, we aim to adhere as strictly as possible to the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 (WCAG 2.1) at the AA level. These guidelines explain how to make web content accessible to people with a wide array of disabilities. Complying with those guidelines helps us ensure that the website is accessible to all people: blind people, people with motor impairments, visual impairment, cognitive disabilities, and more.
This website utilizes various technologies that are meant to make it as accessible as possible at all times. We utilize an accessibility interface that allows persons with specific disabilities to adjust the website’s UI (user interface) and design it to their personal needs.
Additionally, the website utilizes an AI-based application that runs in the background and optimizes its accessibility level constantly. This application remediates the website’s HTML, adapts Its functionality and behavior for screen-readers used by the blind users, and for keyboard functions used by individuals with motor impairments.
If you’ve found a malfunction or have ideas for improvement, we’ll be happy to hear from you. You can reach out to the website’s operators by using the following email
Our website implements the ARIA attributes (Accessible Rich Internet Applications) technique, alongside various different behavioral changes, to ensure blind users visiting with screen-readers are able to read, comprehend, and enjoy the website’s functions. As soon as a user with a screen-reader enters your site, they immediately receive a prompt to enter the Screen-Reader Profile so they can browse and operate your site effectively. Here’s how our website covers some of the most important screen-reader requirements, alongside console screenshots of code examples:
Screen-reader optimization: we run a background process that learns the website’s components from top to bottom, to ensure ongoing compliance even when updating the website. In this process, we provide screen-readers with meaningful data using the ARIA set of attributes. For example, we provide accurate form labels; descriptions for actionable icons (social media icons, search icons, cart icons, etc.); validation guidance for form inputs; element roles such as buttons, menus, modal dialogues (popups), and others. Additionally, the background process scans all of the website’s images and provides an accurate and meaningful image-object-recognition-based description as an ALT (alternate text) tag for images that are not described. It will also extract texts that are embedded within the image, using an OCR (optical character recognition) technology. To turn on screen-reader adjustments at any time, users need only to press the Alt+1 keyboard combination. Screen-reader users also get automatic announcements to turn the Screen-reader mode on as soon as they enter the website.
These adjustments are compatible with all popular screen readers, including JAWS and NVDA.
Users can also use shortcuts such as “M” (menus), “H” (headings), “F” (forms), “B” (buttons), and “G” (graphics) to jump to specific elements.
We aim to support the widest array of browsers and assistive technologies as possible, so our users can choose the best fitting tools for them, with as few limitations as possible. Therefore, we have worked very hard to be able to support all major systems that comprise over 95% of the user market share including Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Apple Safari, Opera and Microsoft Edge, JAWS and NVDA (screen readers), both for Windows and for MAC users.
Despite our very best efforts to allow anybody to adjust the website to their needs, there may still be pages or sections that are not fully accessible, are in the process of becoming accessible, or are lacking an adequate technological solution to make them accessible. Still, we are continually improving our accessibility, adding, updating and improving its options and features, and developing and adopting new technologies. All this is meant to reach the optimal level of accessibility, following technological advancements. For any assistance, please reach out to
