Benefits of Aptos ® Thread 2G Soft

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 these threads was conducted with local anesthesia 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.
