Aptos® methods are minimally invasive face and body
rejuvenation methods, allowing to get momentary results: to improve soft tissue
contours, to slow down aging processes, to preserve beauty without surgical
intervention, i.e. without scars or hems.
From 1996 the Aptos Company has produced unique materials for plastic and aesthetic surgery and cosmetology. The products and the methods have gained world recognition and are successfully applied by specialists in 48 countries of the world. The authors of the products and methods have been awarded many prestigious international awards and patents of invention.
Aptos threads are made of polypropylene. It is a synthetic non-absorbable material, used in surgery for over 50 years. Polypropylene is safe, does not cause allergy and is not rejected by the organism. The implanted threads make a strong supporting skeleton and give excellent aesthetic results. The first improvements are seen right after the procedure and the final results show in 2-3 weeks. The results maintain up to 4-5 years on the average*.
Innovative elaboration of the authors of Aptos method is Light Lift Thread, which differs from Aptos in production material.
Light Lift Threads are made of caprolac, a material which completely eliminates from the organism in 360 days. L- lactid acid (a compound of the thread) provides additional rejuvenating effect, activating natural revitalizing processes and slowing down aging processes. Visible results can be reached on many parts of face and body. The results maintain up to 2 years on the average*.
The threads are inserted with the help of a guiding Needle through dot
punctures or tiny skin cuts (up to 0.5 cm). The procedure is carried out in
ambulatory under local infiltrative anesthesia. Whole face lifting lasts about
30 minutes, the lifting of separate areas lasts about 15 minutes.
Aptos and Light Lift Lifting methods are suitable for both men and women of different age and with different indications for correction.
