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.
"Immediately trusted Jenny’s professional advice"
Having lost a lot of weight over a short period of time, I felt that I had aged dramatically. I felt extremely unhappy with how I looked which made me feel very low. I decided that I wanted to do something about it. I wanted to look like a younger version of me but not lose my character. I did some research for cosmetic surgery abroad but couldn’t go ahead due to my medication. My husband then did some further research to alternative treatments and found Aspire online. I came in for an initial consultation to discuss my requirements and expectations and was immediately referred to Jenny O’Neill the Clinic Director to discuss anti aging treatments such as Thread Lifts and Dermal Fillers. I had not considered these treatments before; however, I immediately trusted Jenny’s professional advice and decided to go ahead with a Thread Lift. Initially, I struggled to see the difference when I looked in the mirror but on meeting with Jenny at my follow up appointment, we looked at my before and after pictures and I was completely taken aback at how different I actually looked. Having had further discussions with Jenny it was recommended that I have Dermal Fillers to compliment the Lift to fill out my cheeks for a more youthful appearance. It really has taken years off me. I now feel happy within myself. It’s never been about how I look, but how I feel and Jenny and the Aspire Team have helped me to get my confidence back.
