Doesn`t "5 to 10 years younger" sounds perfect for a minimally invasive procedure`s result?!
Because that`s how you are going to look like after Aptos thread lifting
Right after the procedure, you might have slight swelling or overcorrection, but already in a few days, you will look like the pictures of yourself several years ago.
Compared to a traditional facelift surgery – which is perfect for a visible change, but also leaves scars and requires a long recovery period, after Aptos thread lifting, you will not find any signs of intervention or scars. And definitely will notice an improvement in skin texture, fine lines, and sagging skin.
Apply ice packs immediately after the procedure
Follow your doctor`s recommendations and enjoy youthful skin!
The Aptos thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure and does not require general anesthesia to correct small areas such as the face and neck. General anesthesia is used for armoring and lifting of body (breast, buttocks, thighs, etc.)
In both cases, the thread lifting procedure is not associated with pain or other discomforts. After the preparation of the correction zone, the patient undergoes local anesthesia with an anesthetic solution, which is in action after a few minutes.
All that can be felt during the procedure is the insertion of the cannula but without any pain.
The procedure lasts about 15 minutes, leaves no scars or other marks, and does not require a long recovery.
Thread lifting is classified as a minimally invasive technique. However, minimally invasive procedures also involve some contraindications.
Below are the most common ones:
In order to avoid complications, always honestly share your medical history with the doctor, and, if necessary, undergo the appropriate examinations.
And remember, your health comes first!
It all started with an idea ...
The history of Aptos development goes back to 1987, when the Georgian plastic, reconstructive surgeon Marlen Sulamanidze was inspired by the idea of avoiding a long rehabilitation period and reducing the risks associated with traditional interventions of plastic surgery.
Now the Aptos product line is a large selection of threads of different composition, shape, and purpose.
Aptos threads are made of both non-absorbable (polypropylene) and absorbable (poly-L-lactic acid + caprolactone) material. Polypropylene threads are used in surgery as a suture material for more than 50 years, as well as Polylactic threads which are composed of fully absorbable, non-allergic material.
Last year Aptos inventors presented a revolutionary new formula of thread composition - the 3rd Generation Aptos Thread with Hyaluronic Acid.
An improved formulation ensures additional benefit for the skin, provides less traumatic procedure, faster rehabilitation. Skin elasticity and texture improvement are visible right after thread implantation.
It has been almost 25 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 available in 75 countries. Millions of threads are sold all over the world.
Aptos products comply with the requirements of European Pharmacopoeia. Products have a CE mark and FDA approval and the production is certified according to ISO 13485, that guarantees the quality throughout the entire manufacturing process.
As there is no cutting of the skin and only a local anesthetic is used, the procedure is considered less complicated than a full surgical face lift.
For thread lifting, a strict procedure protocol has been developed, which implies compliance with septic and antiseptic standards for minimally invasive interventions. Compliance with all recommendations, numerous studies and the composition of the thread ensures the minimization and prevention of any complications and unwanted consequences from the procedure.
It is important to remember that thread lifting can only be performed by a licensed doctor who has undergone special Aptos training.
