It is a non-surgical and minimally-invasive treatment that provides a cost-saving alternative to traditional facelifts. Sometimes called a lunchtime lift or weekend facelift, it involves attaching barbed or notched Aptos threads to sagging tissue on the face.
The threads are then pulled tight, gently lifting the skin on the face for a revitalised, smooth, youthful visage. Aptos threads are dissolvable, absorbing into the skin over about 12 months, leaving behind a structure of new collagen to support the face. The effects of a thread lift are often noticeable for 7 to 10 years after treatment.
