Fine Thread Contour is a newly discovered technique that offers a non-surgical subtle and natural looking face-lift often referred to as the “lunch hour lift” because of its simplicity and the time it takes to carry out the procedure. Fine Thread Contour, or FTC helps stimulate the production of collagen and angiogenesis, promote micro-circulation of blood, and is able to activate the process of wound healing which in turn creates a subtle yet effective lift that creates a rejuvenated and refreshed look.
It instantly results in several benefits for both men and women, such as firming, shaping, tightening, diminishing wrinkles and lifting of the skin. If you are looking for a quick and effective solution to a range of aging problems then a thread lift is the perfect solution.
How is a Fine Thread Contour procedure done?
The fine bio-absorbable and antimicrobial filament threads are inserted under the skin using fine needles. No incision is needed therefore there is no risk of dimpling or deformity on the skin.
What areas can be treated?
The thread lift can be used to enhance and improve the appearance of a sagging neck, sagging cheeks, jowls, droopy eyebrows and other body areas including the abdomen, upper arms and breasts.
What are the advantages of a Fine Thread Contour procedure?
A thread lift offers excellent results and a quick recovery without any scarring. If you are looking for results that are more effective and longer lasting than Botox® and fillers, then a thread lift is the ideal choice.
How long do the results last?
A thread lift’s lasting power depends on the age of the patient at the time of procedure and how much sagging the thread lift has corrected. It should be noted that sagging will return over time, but many reports state results last for anything between 2-3 years. To extend the results it is possible to have additional filaments inserted and your doctor can advise you when this is required.
What is the recovery time following a procedure?
Once the procedure is complete you will be provided with aftercare instructions to help to relieve any discomfort and speed up the process of healing. For the first 24-48 hours you can use ice compresses to deal with any swelling and help to alleviate discomfort. Recovery times are usually less than one week although strenuous exercise should be avoided for between 2 and 3 weeks.
What are the possible side effects and unwanted risks?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, temporary skin reactions such as redness, pain/tenderness, swelling, bruising, or itching.
