It has been more than 21 years since the first APTOS thread and method has been introduced to the aesthetic world. It was first developed in 1996 by Dr Marlen Sulamanidze.
APTOS threads are currently marketed in more than 50 countries. More than a million threads are sold all over the world.
APTOS products comply with the requirements of European Pharmacopoeia. Products have a CE mark and the production is certified according to ISO 13485, that guarantees the quality throughout the entire manufacturing process.
Aptos threads are registered with the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration since November 2017
As there is no cutting of the skin and only a local anaesthetic is used, the procedure is considered less complicated than a full surgical facelift.
