Aptos Threading Lift: Wire Method

Aptos Wire method is a wire tool with a straight needle. With Wire Method, it is possible to pass the needle through hypodermic tissues on a closed contour without skin incisions. The method can be used in the general plastic and aesthetic surgery.

Aptos Wire Method removes wrinkles and folds atrophic and in-drawn scars from the face and body, as well as unevenness of the skin and subcutaneous tissues,  resulted from an unsuccessful liposuction. The manipulation is carried out without incisions, only through pin punctures, without any filler, using a specially designed device.

A thread-lift, also known as feather lift surgery, is a delicate cosmetic surgery procedure to gently, lift sagging skin to produce a smoother, more youthful appearance. If gravity has started to take its toll on your body, a thread lift may be a less invasive alternative to surgery lift to rejuvenate the body without the risks and downtime associated with surgery.

The thread-lift procedure involves very fine surgical sutures being inserted into the soft tissue of the body to lift and support sagging areas. It cannot offer the same results as original surgery would but is a good option for a more subtle natural look.

The main indications:

Sagging neck Necklines Wrinkles on décolletage Body: Sagging breasts, elbows, knees, upper arms, thighs, tummy, and buttocks.

What to expect:

A thread lift is classified as a non-invasive procedure and is usually performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. The procedure takes around an hour to complete. The thread lift procedure involves making small incisions in key locations and inserting a threaded needle under the skin to anchor both ends to lift and suspend the skin. Several variations of the threading technique exist, as a preference of the doctor, or to meet specific patient needs. Once the individual situation has been assessed, generally between 2 and 20 threads will be used, depending on the patients’ needs.

Thread lifting is a relatively new procedure. Although early thread lifts were performed using permanent threads, health professionals today, use dissoluble barbed threads. The barbs are embedded in the skin to promote fibrosis, the formation of new connective tissue bundles. The newly formed connective tissue acts as a type of scaffolding to hold up the skin, making it firm in the process.

Skin tends to lose firmness and elasticity and sags with age because the volume of elastin and connective tissue in the skin diminishes over time. Cells produce hyaluronic acid in response to the fibrosis, which attracts and builds moisture in the area to make the skin firm and full. When the microvessels in the skin become traumatized by the thread insertion, they open up, and new blood with oxygen and nutrients flow to heal them, which also results in younger-looking skin.”

There will be some level of discomfort, swelling and bruising around the area after the procedure. This will gradually subside. Critics of the technique say that the effects of thread lifting are temporary because the visible enhancement immediately following the procedure is mostly due to inflammation and the resulting pooling of body fluids (edema) around the threaded area. You can expect to go home within several hours of the procedure. You can also expect to be back to normal activities 2 to 3 days later*.

The treatment effects are:

Skin rejuvenation Smoothing wrinkles Loose skin after diet Skin Lightening Increase skin volume Lifting the skin

Results can vary significantly between our clients. All our treatment results are subject to the individualities of each client.

Furthermore, all treatment procedures carry potential risks and complications which are described in detail in our treatment consents forms. These may include but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the result and the expense of further treatments to manage a complication (patient forms). If you have any questions regarding these potential risks and complications. Please discuss them with our doctors or aesthetic therapist prior to treatments.

Before undergoing a treatment, please be sure that you understand that YOUR actual results will likely VARY SIGNIFICANTLY from other patient’s results, including their BEFORE & AFTER photos.

This is quite important to understand — that EVEN when you feel that you look very similar to another client in their BEFORE images, your results will likely vary significantly — because you are a unique person.  Every individual has NOT only a completely unique physique but also uniquely individualistic body healing capacities, scarring tendencies and recovery processes — some of which are unpredictable even in very-healthy patients who rest adequately and do ALL the other right things before and after their procedure.

Please be noted, our doctors and aesthetic therapists offer you our highest expertise in our aesthetic procedures.
