Contour Thread Lift
Definition - What does Contour Thread Lift mean?
The Contour Thread Lift is a non-surgical alternative to a face-lift. The procedure entails the usage of absorbable thread to tighten up and lift the face, giving it a more contoured shape. The procedure is meant to fight the signs of aging such as sagging, deep creases, folds and wrinkles of the face, in a non-invasive, non-surgical way, by implanting dissolvable thread underneath the skin of the face.
The threads not only lift and re-shape the face, but also cause a collagen boost.
TheConsultation explains Contour Thread Lift
The Contour Thread Lift is a non-surgical face-lift which uses dissolvable thread created out of the polydioxanone material. This type of thread is commonly used for stitching after surgery and doesn't need to be removed as it naturally dissolves. The thread is used to re-shape the face by lifting it and adjusting folds, wrinkles, and deep creases created due to the natural aging process.
The treatment lasts about half an hour and is done with the application of a local anesthetic. The inserted threads lift the sagging parts of the face, giving it a new and more contoured shape. The strategically placed threads stimulate collagen synthesis, which in turns improves skin elasticity.
The treatment thus not only tightens the skin by functioning as a scaffolding for the face, but also helps rejuvenate it by stimulating biological processes which slow aging in the skin.
