What are the possible complications of an Aptos Thread Lift treatment?

Like all procedures of this type, there is a possibility of side effects, although not everybody experiences them.  These side effects include:
  • Transient pain, swelling, bruising & erythema of the treated area may occur.
  • Asymmetry: Usually temporary caused by swelling and will resolve itself in 2 weeks.
  • Transient rippling,  dimple formation and skin retraction
  • Slight depression or skin irregularity
  • Inflammation/Infection
  • Visible contouring of the thread
  • Weakening of thread fixation
  • Thread migration
  • Material sensitivity/allergic reactions
  • Sensory nerve injury (very rare)

These inconveniences should disappear a few days after treatment.  If you experience any side effects, you should talk to your doctor.
