(2)Spring Thread Effectiveness and Safety study

In 2005, Doctor Jean Frismand, doctor of medicine and biomechanical engineer, began researching the tensor threads used in medicine and cosmetic surgery. He interrogated doctors and aesthetic surgeons, as well as patients, to find out about their needs and expectations.

The aim was to substitute cosmetic surgery, in certain cases, with a simpler and less invasive treatment (thread lift) allowing for tissue to be repositioned and thus combat natural sagging in the face and some other parts of the body.

The doctors wanted a long, strong, reliable thread that was easy to use. To accommodate the moving parts of the face and obtain a natural result, they stressed the fact that the thread should be flexible and have elasticity.

For their part, the patients insisted on the efficacy and long-term effects of the result. They wanted “an effective solution lasting for a long time, without having to go back and pay for new treatment every six months”.

Notre-histoire

With this information, Doctor Frismand applied his 25 years of experience in surgical implants to develop a tensor thread that met the requirements of both patients and doctors. He created a company called 1st SurgiConcept® and the Spring Thread® brand in 2007. The product obtained its first CE marking in 2008, which has been constantly renewed since then.

In 2013, Dominique Malard, who was already managing a biotech company, purchased 1st SurgiConcept® and expanded the company.

Thanks to its unique characteristics of flexibility, strength and elasticity, as well as its recognised effectiveness, the product soon became a great success internationally and the company rapidly increased its export business.
