Fine Thread Contour
Fine Thread Contouring
(Non-Surgical Face Lift With Threads)
Fine Thread Contour (FTC) Therapy is an alternative to the classic face-lift and can be used to effectively combat age related skin sagging in areas such as the brow, cheeks, face and neck. Using a delicate threading technique to elevate and tighten the skin, the treatment is a long-lasting, non-surgical way of achieving tighter and younger looking skin.
How it works:
As we age, our facial skin may start to sag and wrinkle due to the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibers. Using a long needle, FTC threads are inserted into precise locations underneath the skin where hair-like barbs of the threads grasp onto soft tissues. Once in position, the thread opens like an umbrella to form a support structure that gently lifts and tightens loose areas of the face. The end of each thread is cut and knotted, retracting deep under the skin leaving no visible sign of treatment.
*Please note that result may vary from person to person.
Results & Recovery:
You will see immediate results with a visible lift in the targeted areas following the treatment. The tightness of your face will continue to improve over a period of 2-6 months as new collagen grows between the threads. The threads will gradually dissolve over about 6 months, but the resulting lift from the collagen will remain.
Following treatment you may notice bruising and slight swelling for a few days. Recovery is quick and you can return to your regular routine the following day. Facial movement may be limited for the first two weeks, and it can be uncomfortable to laugh or smile.
What are the threads made of?
The threads used at Eternel Clinic are 100% Polydioxanone, which is a clinically proven biocompatible and bio-absorbable material widely used in medical suturing.
How long do the results last for?
The lasting effects of FTC varies depending on your age, quality of skin, degree of sagging, and the number of threads used. From our experience at Eternel Clinic, results can last between 2-3 years based on lifestyle.
Is the procedure safe?
Yes, the procedure is safe. Because FTC is a non-surgical treatment with only a local anesthetic used, it is considerably less complicated than a full surgical facelift.
Is the procedure painful?
The treatment can be considered painful, however our specialized doctors will minimize discomfort as much as possible by using special creams that reduce the pain.
