Aptos Threads Mini Facelift, Neck Lift & Brow Lifts
A stitch in time
These days, you don’t need to undergo major surgery to see big improvements in your skin. In fact, one of the cosmetic industry’s most sophisticated skin treatments only requires the use of a needle, not a knife. Called the Aptos Thread Lift, the minimally-invasive treatment works to lift and tighten the skin, with many comparing the results to that of a face lift. “The new revolutionary third generation Aptos Thread Lift takes the face, neck and brow lifts to a highly advanced level,” says cosmetic physician Dr Buddy Beaini from MD Cosmedical Solutions. Dr Buddy is considered Australia’s thread lift specialist, having performed thousands of procedures over the last nine years. “We’ve introduced the Aptos Thread Lift to cater for the increasingly popular demand by patients for effective non-surgical solutions for ageing, sagging skin.” Here’s everything you need to know about the innovative new treatment.
Thread lifting is commonly used to address drooping and sagging brows, excessive jowling, neck laxity and loss of cheek positioning. “The best candidates for this procedure are both women and men in their 30s to 70s, who long for a more youthful appearance, but don’t want or are unable to have a traditional face lift,” says Dr Buddy.
After numbing with a local anaesthetic, specialdissolvable threads are inserted into the dermis, lifting and anchoring the skin upwards and outwards. As the threads dissolve, the skin reacts by producing collagen and elastin, resulting in a new self-supporting skin structure. The procedure takes just 30 and 60 minutes to complete, depending on the number of areas treated. “The procedure is simple, comfortable and requires no incisions,” says Dr Beaini.
First developed in the 90s, the thread lift has had a makeover of its own, thanks to the development of new, high-tech threads. “Unlike the traditional smooth and unidirectional threads, the third generation Aptos Threads contain absorbable bi-directional barbs that result in a better grip on the skin tissue.” Also the threads and results are much longer lasting. “Aptos Threads slowly dissolve over an 18 to 24 month period, lasting much longer than any other dissolvable threads. During this period, the threads are helping to create the patient’s own collagen naturally.”
After the treatment, patients will instantly look younger and fresher, with results improving over the next two years, lasting up to five years. “The results are a natural lifting and tightening of the facial skin tissue, with improved contours, skin elasticity and skin texture,” says Dr Buddy.
The downtime and recovery period is brief, with most patients returning to normal activity or work within 1-3 days. “The risks are very minimal and include mild bruising, infection, and tenderness for several days,” says Dr Buddy.
