The company describes its suture system:
Contour Threads™ are a patented self anchoring thread technology that permits a minimally invasive surgical approach for elevation and fixation of skin. Contour Threads™ are the only FDA product cleared for market with current indications for elevation and fixation of midface and brow.
Contour Threads™ are made from polypropylene, a material that has been used inside the human body as a suture material for decades. Contour Threads™ are designed with patented dimensional barbs that attach to the subdermal tissue, lifting, suspending and fixating.
