Aptos Thread Lift

The Aptos thread lift procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia. It involves gently repositioning the skin and subcutaneous tissue to achieve subtle lifting. The holding strength of the threads varies based on their material composition. For instance, Aptos' combined Polylactic acid and Polycaprolactone threads break down in 1½-2 years and lose their holding strength after 5 months, while Polydioxanone threads break down in 6-7 months but lose their holding strength after 2 months. Therefore, the outcome of the procedure depends on the thread's ability to stimulate a connective tissue framework for support. Additionally, the final result is influenced by the chosen methods, the thread material's capacity to stimulate collagen production, as well as individual factors such as genetics, age, health, and lifestyle. It's important to note that factors like a healthy diet, non-smoking, avoidance of excessive physical activities, and limited sun exposure may positively influence collagen production. Studies have indicated that the results of thread lifting can be preserved for 12-24 months in 70% of patients, with the duration of the effect being longer in the middle third of the face compared to the lower jaw platysma zone where muscle activities are present.

A surgical facelift is widely acknowledged as an effective treatment for addressing skin and soft tissue sagging. However, for individuals who are not yet prepared for or do not favour surgical intervention, a thread lift presents a non-surgical alternative. Many patients have expressed satisfaction with the outcomes of this treatment. It's crucial to recognise that while thread lifts offer positive results, they do not stop the natural aging process.

What Are Aptos Threads Made Of

APTOS absorbable threads are made from polylactic acid and Polycaprolactone. Both are fully absorbable, non-allergic materials that have been used in medicine for many years.  

Aptos threads provide double action: lifting and collagen regeneration.

The Aptos Threads employ specially designed barbs to delicately interact with the surrounding tissues. Over time, these threads gradually break down into smaller molecules, prompting the body's natural restorative processes to stimulate the production of new collagen. This leads to a reduction in sagging and an improvement in skin firmness and elasticity. The final byproducts of the thread are carbon dioxide, which is exhaled, and water, which is released through perspiration or excreted in urine.

Choosing The Right Thread

The clinical results of Aptos threads are widely acknowledged for their superiority. They have been honored with the Anti-Aging & Beauty trophy for "The Best Tightening Threads" in 2016, 2017, and 2018, and "Best Suspension Threads" in 2022 & 2023. Should you desire the best, consider choosing Aptos threads. After all, the choice is ultimately yours.

Combination Treatments

The aging process affects all layers of the face and body, including the skin, subcutaneous fat, muscle, fascia & ligaments, deep fat, and bone. Aptos thread lifting primarily addresses the skin and subcutaneous layer. Therefore, a comprehensive treatment approach may be necessary to achieve optimal rejuvenation results.
