Aptos thread treatments and face lifting


Lifting with Aptos threads is the best alternative to a real surgical facelift, and is performed by lifting and tightening the tissues of different regions of the face and neck with specially designed threads. Aesthetic threads in skin lifting have the idea of lifting and fixing tissue in an aesthetically more favorable position.

One of the first visible signs of skin aging is the appearance of wrinkles on the face. With aging, the skin loses its elasticity, the amount of fatty tissue and collagen decreases more and more, and the facial muscles lose tone and partially atrophy. Wrinkles on the face become more pronounced, especially those around the eyes and lips, the cheeks lack fullness. As the face ages, it looks more tired and relaxed and loses its fresh and youthful appearance. This is where Aptos threads come in to help you look younger and more vital.

Aptos threads – treatment

Aptos threads are made of polypropylene. It is a synthetic non-resorbable material that has been used in surgery for over 50 years. The material is safe, does not cause allergies or rejection by the body. Threads introduced into the tissue represent support for the surrounding soft tissue, the first results are visible immediately after treatment, and the final result is visible in 3 weeks, that is, when the phase of creating your own collagen in the tissue ends.

APTOS threads (short for anti-ptosis) for skin lifting are a popular method that achieves revitalization and improvement of the quality of the skin of the face and body without surgery and scars. The method is considered minimally invasive with a short recovery time.

Recovery and precautions

During the treatment, red dots may appear at the injection sites on the face, as well as barely noticeable swelling. These phenomena are rare and temporary and disappear a few days after the treatment. Five days after the treatment, gently clean your face and carefully wash your hair. Avoid exposure to the sun and the use of solariums, as well as facial treatments for three weeks after the procedure. Full recovery takes up to two weeks, and until then you can return to normal activities with less restriction of facial expressions and avoiding sports activities.

It is important that you continue to take care of your skin’s health. To take care that you consume as many minerals and vitamins as possible through your diet, which work to preserve the elasticity of the skin (vitamins A, B, C, E and D, minerals magnesium and zinc). But also to take in as much water as possible and take care of skin hygiene in order to enhance and prolong the effect of the treatment.

Techniques and methods of use

There are several techniques and methods of applying APTOS thread: Visage Excellence, Light Lift and Nano method.

Visage Excellence uses absorbable threads with specially designed multi-directional hooks. Hooks provide greater strength after insertion. The design of the threads makes them efficient, and the lifting procedure is achieved with an atraumatic round-tip cannula, which avoids bleeding and swelling after the procedure. Areas of application are cheekbones, eyebrows, chin/neck and jaw line.

The Light Lift method and threads are available in absorbable and non-absorbable forms. There are three ways, ie. Light Lift methods: Needle method, which enables tightening of the underarm or eyebrow lifting with just one stitch; Thread method, which allows tightening of eyebrows, dark circles, the central part of the face (midface) and chin, using several stitches; Linea method is useful in tightening the middle and lower part of the face and neck.

The Nano Excellence and Spring method, in addition to the aforementioned advantages of the Excellence method, stimulate the growth of collagen, which regenerates the skin. The spring method uses resorbable threads that spirally wrap around the blunt tips of the cannula. The threads retain their elasticity even after insertion and greatly reduce the visibility and formation of deep wrinkles on the face. Areas of application are marionette lines, nasolabial lines, glabellar lines, lines above the upper lip, lines on the forehead, eyebrows, nose and lip contours.
