Aptos Needle 2G ® Description
The title Aptos ® is combined from two parts – a (negation) and ptosis, which translated from Latin means abasement, descent. The procedure where Aptos Needle 2G ® threads are used means literally «against descent». After lift, from 1 to 3 months, at the place of insignificant injury of connective tissue, new tissue with clear contours is formed. The main types of threads used are: free floating cogged or barbed threads which should not be suspended in order to hold the lift and smooth or suspension threads which should be anchored to a stable structure of the face or scalp.
Features of Aptos ® Needle 2G
Aptos ® Needle 2G are double-edged traditional triangular needles with thread fastening in the center of the needle. Thanks to the method it is possible to conduct absorbable needle with notches through any necessary contour using the technology of two temporarily paired needles with one common needle tip. This method is suitable for eyebrow area, midface area, mental and submental areas. This method is very sensitive as double-edged needle can be rotated under the skin without cuts while triangular needle differentiates the required layer.
Benefits of Aptos ® Needle 2G
Lifting with Aptos ® threads is a real facelift which presupposes movement of tissues to new position. During this procedure, bio-compatible threads made from polypropylene are placed into the soft tissues of the face through small (2-3mm) cuts. Microscopic notches (a kind of anchors) are throughout Aptos ® threads which help to move the skin and then fix it in necessary position. Facelift with Aptos ® threads was conducted with local anaesthesia and takes around 1-1.5 hours. The initial result is visible immediately after the procedure, and the final result can be assessed in 2-3 weeks. During that period the patient should avoid active expression and masticatory movements. Effect is maintained for 2-3 years.
