Aesthetic threads in skin lifting

WHAT IS THREADLIFT?

Thread lifting is the best alternative to real 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 the tissue in an aesthetically more favorable position.

WHAT ARE APTOS THREADS?

APTOS threads (short for anti-ptosis) for skin lifting are a popular method to revitalize and improve the quality of facial and body skin without surgery and scarring. The method is considered minimally invasive with a short recovery time.

APTOS is a combination of aesthetic threads and application methods. The threads are made of disposable resorbable surgical suture, and have found application in lifting, ie tightening, contouring and filling the skin of the face and body. The composition of the thread consists of poly-L lactic acid in combination with caprolactone – P(LA/LC). PLLA increases collagen synthesis, and the absorption period lasts 1.5 – 2 years.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE APTOS METHOD?

  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • It is performed under local anesthesia
  • The duration of the procedure is 30 minutes
  • Immediate visible results
  • Minimum recovery time
  • Promotes collagen production
  • Increases microcirculation
  • Long lasting effects
  • 3rd generation of threads with hyaluronic acid

WHAT ARE THE AREAS OF APPLICATION?

Contouring of the cheekbones, eyebrows, chin/neck and jaw line.

TECHNIQUES AND METHODS

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

Visage Excellence uses resorbable threads with specially designed multi-directional hooks. The hooks provide greater strength after insertion. The design of the threads makes them effective, and the lifting procedure is achieved with an atraumatic round-tip cannula, thus avoiding 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 resorptive and non-resorptive form. There are three ways, ie. Light Lift methods: Needle method that allows tightening the chin or lifting the eyebrows with just one stitch; Thread method that allows tightening of the eyebrows, eyelids, middle part of the face (midface) and chin, using multiple stitches; Linea method useful in tightening the middle and lower part of the face and neck.

Nano Excellence and Spring methods, in addition to already mentioned benefits of Excellence methods, stimulate the growth of collagen that regenerates the skin. Spring method uses resorbable threads that are spirally wrapped around the blunt tips of the cannula. 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 folds, glabellar wrinkles, wrinkles above the upper lip, wrinkles on the forehead, eyebrows, nose and lips contouring.
