FTC PDO Therapy offers a subtle and natural looking face lift result. It is a minimally invasive, fast easy procedure with no scarring and minimal downtime.
FTC therapy instantly lifts sagging tissue and induces blood circulation whilst stimulating collagen.
FTC can be used to target the following areas:
folds on neck, abdomen fat reduction,
upper arms skin tightening and fat reduction.
What is PDO Therapy?
Is an excellent and effective cosmetic technique to lift and tighten sagging skin tissues. It re-defines facial contours and induces collagen production. The thread forms part of an integrated support structure for the tissue of the face due to collagen synthesis. The lifting effect is at its peak 6 months later when collagen has formed around the threads. The lifting effect lasts between 2-3 years
Which areas are treatable using PDO Threads
Upper and lower cheeks, forehead (brow lifting), jawline, neck, nasoi-labial folds, marionette lines, arms, thighs and abdomen
PDO Threads can very effectively strengthen the contour of the face, reduce roundness, lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls, neck and also produce an excellent eye brow lift
Enhances skin tone and tightens pores
Skin rejuvenation from the natural wound healing process. FTC therapy originated from traditional thread-lift philosophy in western medicine as well as “threads -embedding therapy” in oriental acupuncture therapy to control and improve tissue stimulation and muscle contraction.
The needle is inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin and when it is taken out, the threads remain implanted in the skin. Insertion of dozens of needles to the deeper layer of skin with absorbable threads activates their natural regenerative process and mechanical stimulation of wound healing and tissue contraction.
Mono, Screw and Cog Threads
The most recent development in thread lifting has been the introduction of cog threads. A move away from the traditional monofilaments to barbed threads, this new shape induces higher chronic inflammatory reaction causing a higher rate of fibroblast conversion during the wound healing process. As a result, clients achieve a longer lasting and more visible effect after a single treatment. The threads are 100% PDO (Polydioxanone), a clinically proven bio-compatible material that is already widely used in medical suturing.
Local anaesthetic is injected into the treatment area. The PDO thread will then be introduced using a cannula or micro-needle into the required area. The procedure takes around 45-60 minutes depending on what treatment the patient requires. The patient is able to fully resume their everyday routine and social commitments within a couple of days. FTC PDO Therapy is a tailor made treatment which can be adjusted to the patients requirements at any time. when PDO Therapy is combined with PRP, Fillers and Botox great results can be achieved
Advantages compared to previous PDO Therapy
PDO Threads are 100% PDO (Polydioxanone)
Clinically proven bio-compatible material that is already widely used in medical suturing
Our threads give both a tissue lift as well as skin rejuvenation
Biodegradeable within 6 months and effect can last up to 3 years
PDO MONO threads inserted into the dermis gives skin tightening and skin rejuvenation
PDO MONO threads inserted into the sub cutaneous adipose tissue cause lipolysis
PDO COG threads give SMAS lifting (Jawline & jowl lift and cheek lift)
The threads are very strong and after 60 – 80 days save up to 50% of the strength properties. After 180 -240 days they are completely absorbed. Tissue reaction to thread PDO is insignificant and is soft new collagen.
Before the procedure:
- Stop taking aspirin and vitamin E for 10 days prior to the procedure, medications like ibuprofen for 7 days before the procedure, alcohol for 3 days.
- Analgesics are assigned as needed. (LMX or lidocaine 2% locally).
After the procedure:
- Apply the ice for 15 minutes
- Avoid alcohol, aspirin, vitamin E for 3 days
- Massage in the injection zone filaments contraindicated 1 month.
- If bruising use Arnica cream or tablets or both.
With all of the above treatments, you are relying on a good biological response, so the exact outcome for each individual cannot be guaranteed. However, our treatment regimens are designed to maximize the potential for effective treatment and the improvements for some individuals can be dramatic.
