Thread Lifts with Dr Hugo Ho

The appearance of our faces is a crucial aspect of our identity and social connections. As we age, our faces begin to reflect the effects of gravity, sun exposure, and daily life stress, resulting in the formation of deep creases, loss of jawline contours, and the appearance of loose skin and folds around the neck. It's widely acknowledged that a sagging face can give the impression of tiredness and diminish our overall pleasantness, prompting an increasing number of individuals to explore minimally invasive and low-risk methods to address these concerns.

Advancements in facial rejuvenation have led to the availability of non-surgical treatments aimed at repositioning and supporting superficial skin tissues. Absorbable threads have gained popularity as a non-surgical option, allowing individuals to tighten and remodel their skin. These threads aid in collagen building and tissue tightening, offering individuals the opportunity to achieve a refreshed and youthful appearance at any stage of life.

The Aptos Thread Lifting Method is one of the most innovative thread lift procedures available. It uses absorbable threads made of Polylactic acid and Polycaprolactone materials. Aptos thread lifts have received prestigious awards in Europe, including "Best Tightening Thread," "Best Suspension Thread," and "Best Clinical Case in Facial Defect Reconstruction." This non-surgical solution provides a subtle lifting effect, improves skin firmness and elasticity, and tightens and rejuvenates your skin. If you're looking for a non-invasive way to enhance your skin, Aptos absorbable threads may be the perfect choice for you.

The thread lift treatment is known for its potential in improving the appearance of sagging skin on the face and body by promoting the production of new collagen. It has been observed that Aptos absorbable threads, which have been utilised in surgery for over 30 years, gradually dissolve in the body, leaving behind a scaffold of new collagen and elastin to rejuvenate the skin.

Aptos threads are known to have positive effects such as lifting and compacting the volume of the cheekbones, reducing nasolabial folds and jowls, redefining the face's oval, and decreasing neck laxity. They are also believed to help reduce forehead droopiness and Marionette lines around the mouth. After the treatment, the face may appear redefined, with a potential reduction in the signs of aging. Additionally, Aptos threads are thought to improve the skin's tone, texture, color, and hydration.

Dr Ho is dedicated to offering low-risk, effective, and minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedures to patients. An Aptos thread lift is a suitable option for individuals looking to avoid or postpone surgical procedures while achieving natural-looking results. The procedure entails making a small incision with a needle and utilising local anesthesia in sterile conditions to minimise discomfort and scarring.

Following the procedure, patients may notice some mild bruising and swelling, but the recovery period is brief. The threads and tissue will settle within approximately two weeks. During this time, patients are advised to avoid engaging in sports activities and to minimise local trauma. The Aptos thread lift yields immediate results and continues to improve over time as new collagen and elastin production enhances the skin's structure, effectively slowing the aging process.

The Aptos thread lift is considered a beneficial complement to other minimally invasive skin rejuvenation procedures, including wrinkle-reducing injections and treatments aimed at restoring facial volume. Patients may choose to undergo multiple Aptos thread insertions over the course of their lifetime in order to help preserve a more youthful appearance.

Aptos is a well-known provider of thread lift technology, offering a variety of treatment options using different types of threads. It is crucial to choose a highly skilled and knowledgeable doctor to ensure the selection of the most suitable product for your individual requirements. Dr. Hugo Ho, a Certified Aptos Trainer and Brand Ambassador, is adept at developing personalised treatment plans tailored to your needs.

Dr Ho has a keen interest in this area and delved deeper into the Aptos methods. In 2018, he travelled to Georgia to learn from the inventor Dr Marlen Sulamanidze. Due to his expertise, Dr Ho achieved the esteemed Aptos-Certified Trainer status for the Aptos thread lifting methods, making him one of the first Australian doctors to do so.
