Procedure description

As the effects of gravity become more noticeable on our faces, the supporting tissue of the cheeks weakens and starts to sag, facial fat is lost, the jaw line that used to be firm and tight forms jowls at the edges of the mouth that drift down towards the chin, and the lower face and neck sag. This sagging or drooping action of the tissue is considered by doctors as ptosis.

Thread lifting as a non-surgical alternative of facelift

Traditionally, the tendency for sagging would lead most people to a cosmetic surgeon in search of a facelift; however, there is now a less invasive procedure available - thread lifting. It can lift, contour and suspend the sagging tissues of the face, neck and body in those people who need only little to moderate rejuvenation. Therefore thread lifting became a non-surgical alternative for patients who are not ready or do not want to take the surgical option.

Why consider the APTOS Method for a non-surgical facelift?

If you are looking for a non-surgical way to get younger look again, then the fastest growing anti-ageing treatment - the Aptos thread lifting is an answer. The Aptos face lift cosmetic procedure was developed by the surgeon Dr. Marlen Sulamanidze in 1996. That procedure which involves elevating various parts of the face and body using specially designed threads without having to make incisions as during the conventional face lift. In Aptos face lift, threads that had been made from a unique bio-compatible material are used. Therefore these absorbable threads dissolve naturally in 12 months, the skin starts to produce more collagen which gives a longer-lasting result. Besides lifting, threads improve the skin tone, texture, color and hydration.

We have been working in the field of beauty since 2011.

  • The cannula is carefully extracted, leaving the Aptos-thread inside the tissue. The doctor then pulls from one end and then the other end of the Aptos-thread, thus producing the wished lifting-effect. The ends of the thread are then cut, disappearing under the skin.
