Non-Surgical Brow Lift with Aptos Threads

Non-Surgical Brow Lift with Aptos Threads

Sagging eyebrows can make a person appear tired and older.  A brow lift with Aptos threads can tighten the sagging or drooping skin of your eyebrows, elevate the eyebrow and create an open expression temporarily to give you a more youthful and fresher appearance. 

The longevity of a brow threadlift is generally shorter than the rest of the face. The reason is that the thinner superficial fat layer of the forehead provides a less adequate fixation for the threads. More vigorous muscle activities of the forehead also loosen thread fixation.  Dr Ho recommends anti-wrinkle injections the latest five days before treatment to reduce muscle activities to allow the threads to take hold of the tissues properly.  Aptos threads are the longest lasting absorbable threads on the current market.  The threads resorb in 18 to 24 months. Yet, the results of the brow lift can last about 12 months. This procedure is ideal for patients with early signs of facial aging.

Immediately after the thread brow lift, you may expect temporary:

  • bruising and swelling
  • pain and discomfort
  • Unsightly appearance due to hypercorrection (lifting the brows initially higher is necessary as they will drop down to the intended height after the swelling settles in about two weeks.)

Some of the complications of a thread brow lift include:

  • thread movement this may lead to the thread extruding, breaking or losing its hold on the skin
  • puckered skin
  • the thread may be felt under the skin, causing discomfort
  • skin irregularities or a loss of eyebrow symmetry
  • infection (this is rare)

There is no scarring with this thread brow lift, and it is reversible with thread removal.
