Have you ever looked in the mirror and noticed those pesky signs of aging creeping in? We get it. Fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin can leave you feeling less than your most confident self. But before you resign yourself to a traditional facelift with its lengthy downtime, let's explore a revolutionary option: thread lifts. Over this next week, we will be running a series of blogs answering your top questions about thread-lifting starting with a guide on Aptos threads - the champions of long-lasting results (up to 24 months!).

A Guide to Aptos thread lifts While traditional facelifts offer dramatic results, they often involve extensive procedures and significant downtime. Thankfully, innovative solutions like Aptos threads have emerged, providing a minimally invasive approach to combat the signs of aging and facial sagging. Dr. Leah Clinic has established itself as a Centre of Excellence for thread lifting procedures in the UK with our expertise spanning various thread types, including Aptos, Silhouette Soft, and PDO threads, allowing us the ability to tailor the thread treatment to your specific needs. But what exactly are the Aptos threads, and what is the science behind them?

How long does Aptos thread lift Last? – the Thread Lift that Lasts! Aptos threads boast the longest-lasting results out of all thread lifting types -up to 24 months!

Aptos threads offer a minimally invasive approach to facial rejuvenation. Imagine tiny threads with strategically placed barbs, acting like anchors to physically lift and reposition sagging tissues. This translates to immediate visible results, especially for deeper wrinkles, jowls, and volume loss.

While the physical lifting is the primary function of the barbs, both PLA and PCL used in Aptos threads have an additional benefit. As the body gradually breaks down these materials over time, it triggers the natural process of collagen production. Collagen is a vital protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin. Increased collagen production helps improve skin texture, firmness, and overall youthful appearance in the treated areas. The combination of immediate lifting and long-term collagen stimulation contributes to the long-lasting results (18-24 months). Some versions of Aptos threads also incorporate hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a natural substance that attracts and binds water molecules, offering additional hydration and volumisation benefits.

What is the difference between Aptos and PDO threads? For a safe and effective approach to lifting and tightening your skin, Mint PDO threads are a great choice as they offer instant and dramatic lifting of the face and neck, however, If longer-lasting results are your priority then APTOS or Silhouette Soft threads might be a better fit. Another key difference with Aptos threads are their Barbed design. Unlike PDO and Silhouette Soft threads, Aptos threads often have smooth or slightly textured surfaces, Aptos threads primarily use barbs strategically placed along their length. These barbs act like tiny anchors, grabbing onto sagging tissues and physically lifting and repositioning them in a desired position.
