What is it?

Non-surgical 3D face and body lift with nano-mesothreads. The procedure at Lux-medicus Tallinn Clinic is carried out by the Estonian specialist in injection techniques and laser technologies, Mikhail Kordas. Work experience more than 15 years. Over 10,000 established mezzanines. A combination of the best technologies in the field of aesthetic medicine.

One of the progressive methods of rejuvenation today is a thread face lift.

The name “APTOS” consists of two parts – “a” (negation) and “ptos”, which is translated from Latin as “omission”. A procedure that uses APTOS threads literally means “against omission”. After lifting for 1-3 months, a new tissue with clear contours forms at the site of minor damage to the connective tissue.

Many cosmetologists come to the conclusion that facelift with APTOS threads is an intermediate procedure, when it is too early to correct age-related changes surgically, and all other non-surgical methods no longer give results.

    APTOS Threads

    This procedure is suitable for both women and men – with different needs for correction and different ages.

    • If you are under 40 years old and age-related changes are not yet pronounced, then Aptos absorbable sutures are recommended.
    • If you are from 40 to 60 years old, then the best option would be non-absorbable sutures, which have an even more lasting anti-aging effect and even correct advanced cases of ptosis, deep nasolabial folds, wrinkles, etc.

    Before the procedure, our experts will evaluate the condition of your skin and recommend the most optimal version of threads for you – or, perhaps, prescribe another procedure.

    The effect of thread lifting is comparable to a surgical lift, but there will be no scarring on the skin, you will not need to wear a special compression mask and go to dressings. Aptos filaments with microscopic notches that provide a secure fit inside the tissue, preventing any displacement.

    Non-absorbable sutures are usually indicated for patients after 40 who have pronounced signs of a change in the shape of the face. Aptos threading will delight with its results for about 5 years.

    Absorbable threads are made of caprolac, a material that completely dissolves within 12 months. Facelift with Aptos threads of this type provides an additional anti-aging effect due to polylactic acid. When the threads are absorbed, this acid starts the revitalization processes, contributing to the creation of a natural collagen frame, which prolongs the results of lifting and prevents the progression of age-related changes. Thread face lifting using absorbable materials is characterized by a validity period of up to 2 years.

    The choice of threads depends on the age, area of ​​correction and the wishes of the patient himself – the cost of a facelift for which Aptos threads are used depends on the same. The result of lifting will be visible immediately after the procedure, the full effect will appear after 2-3 weeks.

    Threads for a facelift are made of polypropylene – a bio-compatible, inert material, which when introduced under the skin does not cause allergic reactions or rejection. Polypropylene materials have long been successfully used in ophthalmic and cardiac surgery. A facelift can be performed at different ages, depending on this factor, different types of threads can be installed on the patient, both non-absorbable and self-absorbable.

    Benefits of the procedure:

    • Individually tailored solutions. Each type of thread for facelift using Aptos technology has its own advantages, focused on rejuvenating one or more parts of the face, neck or body. In addition, due to the minimal degree of the trauma of the thread lifting technology, it can be recommended to people who cannot use the methods of traditional surgical lifting for one reason or another.
    • The most natural result. A thread facelift is carried out at a depth of not more than 3-5 mm, which eliminates the risk of damage to nerve endings and large vessels. When using any thread lifting technology, a minimum rehabilitation period and the preservation of facial expressions are guaranteed.
    • Maximum safety, minimal injuries and long lasting effect. These are the goals that the developers of thread lifting methods pursue in their work when creating new products. The safety of tightening with threads is guaranteed by the use of suture materials that have been used in medicine for suturing wounds for decades, as well as by the technique of installing threads, taking into account the peculiarities of the anatomical structure of the correction zone.
    • Fast visible result. The thread lifting of various zones of the face lasts no more than 15 minutes, and lifting the entire face takes about half an hour. The first changes become noticeable after the procedure for introducing threads. After 2-3 weeks, the result of the tightening reaches its maximum and lasts from 2 to 5 years, depending on the material of the installed threads.
