APTOS Non-surgical Face Lift

Aptos thread lifting is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure designed to lift and rejuvenate the face. It involves the use of specialized bio-stimulating dissolvable threads that are inserted into the skin to lift tissues and improve the overall contour of the face.

  • What you need to know 
  • Before the Procedure
  • Procedure
  • Recommendations Post-Procedure
What you need to know 

It’s vital to have a consultation before the procedure.


The best candidates for a thread lifting are aged 35 to 55 and have relatively good skin tone with a little sagging.


If there is too much loose skin then surgery may be the best option.

Before the Procedure

No special preparation is required prior to the treatment. 

However, we recommend that you discuss your expectations and ask your doctor any questions you have before starting the treatment. Inform the doctor of any treatments you have already received and of any medicines you are currently taking

Notify your doctor if you are taking blood thinners


Applying APTOS threads takes around 30 minutes in a treatment room under local anaesthesia. Most people are able to resume work the same day after the procedure.


For patients who have multiple threads inserted, it can be a little complicated. For patients who have multiple threads inserted, there can be more discomfort.


The treatment will be adapted to your preferences and can be combined with other aesthetic procedures.

Recommendations Post-Procedure

After the procedure, a slight swelling or bruising may occur. 

Sometimes, a slight depression or skin irregularities appear - Please inform your doctor ASAP as these can be corrected

  • The doctor will prescribe antibiotic if there is a high risk of infection
  • Apply ice packs immediately after the procedure
  • Take analgesics in case of pain for 2-3 days
  • Refrain from applying make-up for minimum 24 hours
  • Sleep face up where possible for about 3 nights
  • Wash face gently without rubbing or massaging for 5-7 days
  • Avoid excessive face and neck movements for about 2 weeks
  • Avoid face and neck massages for 1 month
  • Avoid over-exposure to direct sunlight for 2 weeks
  • Do not use saunas for about 3 weeks
  • Avoid dental surgery for 3 weeks

Advantages of APTOS thread lift:

  • Double action: lifting and regeneration
  • Minimally invasive procedure performed under the local anesthesia
  • Takes about 30 minutes
  • Immediate and ongoing results
  • Minimum downtime
  • New collagen growth and increased microcirculation
  • Long-term effect
