Rejuvenation of the face and body with Aptos threads
Thread lifting is a progressive method of rejuvenation for patients who are not ready for surgical interventions, but who want to get a stable and fast enough result.
Thread lifting with the help of Aptos threads is one of the most popular among others. Aptos threads are made of polypropylene, they are the thinnest core with angled notches. For more than 15 years, Aptos methods have been used in 50 countries and are constantly being improved. They have a Russian certificate of conformity of the Russian Federation and permission of Roszdravnadzor for the use of medical technology Aptos® in therapeutic cosmetology.
Aptos threads are safe, do not cause allergies and are not rejected by the body, the effect lasts up to 5 years.
The innovative development of the authors of the Aptos® methods (Aptos) is Light Lift® threads (Light Lift), which differ from the Aptos® threads (Aptos) in the material from which they are made.
Light Lift® threads are made from caprolac, a material that completely dissolves and is eliminated from the body after 360 days. L-lactic acid in the composition of the threads has an additional anti-aging effect, activating skin renewal and slowing down the aging process. Visible results can be achieved in various areas of the face. The effect of the procedure lasts on average up to 2 years *.
In virtually every method, non-absorbable (Aptos®) or absorbable (Light Lift®) threads can be used.
A longer effect can be obtained in combination with other procedures, such as biorevitalization, mesotherapy, laser rejuvenation methods. In general, the duration of the effect depends on many factors, including the patient’s age and lifestyle, nutrition, skin type and the habit of regularly taking care of the skin.
The threads are introduced under the skin with a special needle, special notches prevent the displacement of tissues, forming a skeleton, lifting in the area of application. Thus, in just 15-20 minutes, under local anesthesia, you can get the effect of plastic surgery, which will last for years.
After the procedure, swelling, pain can be observed, but within a week the patient is fully restored, and every day the effect becomes more noticeable and noticeable.
