APTOS Thread Lift

Lower Face


Combined Areas

Add-on Areas

An APTOS Thread Lift is a minimally invasive treatment used to help lift, tighten and regain elasticity of the skin. It uses specialised surgical threads to lift any sagging skin. By pulling the skin back lightly, the appearance of the face is tighter and more lifted, which helps to create a more youthful look whilst helping to revitalise the skin.

Cosmetic clients looking for improvement in the lower face areas due to sagging skin, these areas include the jowls, cheeks and nasolabial folds, are good candidates for Aptos threads. The reason people are choosing Aptos threads over PDO lifting threads are that they stimulate collagen, results lasting 2 to 3 years, compared to 1 year of duration.

This cosmetic treatment is a much less invasive procedure than the traditional surgical face lift, without the need to use a scalpel or general anaesthesia. As a result, there is both little downtime and minimal side effects with this treatment.

A thread lift treatment helps to reduce the signs of ageing by causing the body to increase the production of collagen to the treated areas. Results are seen immediate after treatment and continue to improve over the months to come.

An APTOS Thread Lift treatment can only be performed by a trained Medical Doctor.

Frequently Asked Questions

APTOS absorbable threads are made from Poly-L-lactic acid and Polycaprolactone materials. Both are fully absorbable, non-allergic materials used in medicine for many years. Aptos threads provide double action: lifting and collagen regeneration.

APTOS threads last for approximately 2-3 years.

This cosmetic treatment is a much less invasive procedure than the traditional surgical face lift, without the need to use a scalpel or general anaesthesia. As a result, there is both little downtime and minimal side effects with this treatment. 

The ideal thread lift candidate will generally have mild to moderate signs of skin laxities. Whereas most patients with excessive laxities will benefit more profoundly from facelift surgery, thread lifts can provide a facelift alternative for patients who do not want surgery or cannot have surgery for medical reasons.

Because you can undergo thread lifts under local anaesthesia, many people with age-related conditions that make them ineligible for surgery (like high blood pressure, type two diabetes and cardiovascular disease) can safely have this treatment.

The results of an APTOS Thread Lift generally last anywhere between one to three years.

Factors that could contribute include,

The cosmetic procedure is performed in our clinic and is completed using Local anaesthetic. Anaesthetic will be injected at the entry and exit points which helps to reduce the discomfort felt by the patients.

The threads are inserted just below the dermis using a long, soft needle or cannula. The skin is gently remodelled and the threads tightened into position. The APTOS threads connect with tissue and keep the skin in the new position.

A thread lifting procedure generally takes between 40-60 minutes to complete.
