The Fine Thread Contour Lift or FTC Thread Lift, involves the use of fine sutures or threads, (made from the same material used in surgery to close wounds) to gently lift and tighten loose skin.
Surgery is no longer the only option for lifting and contouring the face or body.
Once placed under the skin, the FTC threads are used to lift areas of the face or body that are loose or sagging. Much like suspension cables, the FTC Threads are designed to hold the skin in its new position and provide a supportive structure that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin.
The FTC thread lift require no general anaesthesia, hospitalisation or long recovery, and gives immediate results that continue to improve up to 3 months after the procedure as collagen remodelling takes place.
The benefits of a thread lift last between 2 to 3 years.
What areas are suitable for an FTC Thread Lift?
Thread lifts are good for restoring youthful contours to areas that are prone to sagging and loss of volume due to weight loss, poor muscle tone, or the ageing process.
Typical areas to be treated are the brows, cheeks, jowls and the neck area. Thread lifting can also be used to give youthful tone to areas on the body such as the breasts, buttocks and upper arms.
