Dr. Hugo Ho Thread Lifting

The facial appearance shows our vitality and distinguishes and identifies us in our relationships with others.  A sagging face makes you look sad, tired and is certainly less pleasant and less capable of achieving social success than a refreshed, harmonious and youthful one.

Thread Lifting - non surgical facelift

If you are looking a non-surgical way to get a younger look again, go for a minimally invasive, non-surgical facelift.  A thread lift is a non-surgical cosmetic enhancement procedure that corrects moderate skin laxity on the face & body by reducing the sagging of soft tissues and promoting new collagen production.  The thread lifting procedure involves inserting threads into the subcutaneous fat layer under the skin. The threads are then pulled tight, lifting the skin. The face is re-defined. Its volume restored. The effect of ageing is reduced. As the threads reabsorb, they stimulate new collagen and elastin production. This gives a longer-lasting effect.

The results of having a thread lift can generally be seen immediately after the procedure.  There are no incisions, no hospitalisation, and no general anaesthetics as per the classical facelift.  The downtime is also minimal and most people can get back to their lives quickly.

Threads and thread lifting have been around for many years. There are many types on the market but not all threads are created equal. Therefore, we only use the clinically proven & patented Aptos Absorbable Threads.

Aptos is the world leader in thread lifting technology and Aptos threads are recognised as the "Best Tightening Thread" in the Anti-Aging and Beauty industry for 3 consecutive years 2016, 2017 and 2018.

As an accredited trainer for Aptos, we specialise in Aptos Thread Lifting methods.

By using Aptos Threads along with specific Aptos Thread Lifting methods, we can deliver a revolutionary new non-surgical treatment. 

Aptos thread lifting is an additional tool for minimally invasive skin rejuvenation.  It bridges the gap when anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers are not enough.  It is suitable for people who are not ready or don't want to have an invasive surgical procedure.  It is capable of correcting moderate skin laxity by improving the contours of soft tissues.  An Aptos thread lift can help reverse the signs of aging and help you look years younger.

We believe in a thorough individual patient assessment. This way we can tailor a treatment plan specifically for you. We pride ourselves on our process, our craft and our attention to detail. By utilising the latest generation Aptos threads combined with the skill and expertise of Dr Hugo Ho, we can deliver a non-surgical facelift with minimal downtime.

We also believe in a holistic approach to minimise the signs of aging. Dr Ho will utilise other non-invasive procedures in combination with Aptos Thread Lifting methods to achieve the best results. This may include anti-wrinkle or filler injections or even liposuction that will improve the contours of the face..

Dr Hugo Ho


Dr. Ho started researching into treatments for skin and soft tissue sagging 5 years ago. He developed a passion for thread lifting as a minimally invasive treatment for skin and soft tissue sagging.  The development of thread lifting took a significant step in 2008 with the introduction of absorbable threads from Aptos.

Aptos threads gained TGA registration in Australia in 2017.  Dr. Ho furthered his studies in thread lifting with the Aptos methods.  In 2018, he traveled to Georgia and learned from the inventor, Dr. Marlen Sulamanidze.  He is one of the first two Australian doctors to become an Accredited Trainer for the Aptos thread lifting methods.
