APTOS Treatment | Thread Lifting

What you need to know about the non-surgical treatment

If you are looking for a non-surgical way to get a younger look again, then the fastest-growing anti-ageing treatment could be the answer.

Thread lifting is an easy way to smooth wrinkles and tighten sagging skin without surgery. There is a huge increase in the number of enquiries about thread liftings lately.

The procedure involves inserting threads into the soft tissues which are then pulled tight, lifting the skin. As a result, the face is redefined, volume restored & the effects of ageing are significantly reduced.

The threads can be both non-absorbable and absorbable. As absorbable threads dissolve naturally, the skin starts to produce more collagen and elastin which gives a longer-lasting result. The threads are inserted without an incision in the skin, so the procedure is totally safe.

Thread lifts can be used to treat a number of different areas, from smoothing horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles to lifting the brow and outer eyebrow area and restoring volume to sagging cheeks. They can also smooth lines around the mouth and tighten sagging skin under the lower jaw, lift and rejuvenate various parts of the body.

Results are evident immediately after the procedure and can last from 1,5 to 5 years, depending on the thread composition.

So how does it work? The doctor will insert ultra-thin threads into your face and then “lift” your skin up by tightening the thread. One of the biggest selling points is that these threads are infused with Hyaluronic Acid which helps your body to produce more collagen. That means the more collagen you have in your body, the tighter your skin will look, and the less wrinkles and fine lines you’ll likely have! 

I had a consultation with Dr. Lan Leong Chung at Celgen Clinic, who was very professional and reassuring about the Aptos Thread Lift. I had actually never heard of this treatment before, however he gave me all the information I required to enable me to make a decision which made me feel like I was in good hands. Dr. Lan helped me to determine the correction zones, as well as the most appropriate form and technique of introducing the threads. 

After a long detailed consultation with Dr. Lan, I have made up my mind and booked for the Aptos Thread Lift. Before the lifting procedure, the doctor examined the correction zones and did the marking using a special marker. His recommendation was to improve the skin quality, rejuvenate and tighten the soft tissues on my cheeks and laugh lines. The introduction of threads is carried out based on the markings he made, using a needle and depending on the type of threads chosen, to a depth of 3-5 millimetres. Dr. Lan assured me that he will choose the best technique to introduce and fix the threads.

I have to say that throughout the procedure he always kept me informed which put me at ease throughout the procedure. They also cleaned and massaged my face before I had the local anesthetic performed at the area of correction prior to the treatment. And within one hour the procedure was done! I didn’t feel any pain whatsoever, only a mild tugging feeling – I can honestly say that I have experienced more pain from the other treatments!  However Dr. Lan did recommend to plan the procedure during the first week of menstrual cycle, as many women experience an increase in the pain threshold during that time. 

Here are the results of Aptos Thread Lift after 1 month. All the swelling is pretty much gone and my skin looks tighter in a natural way. My aftercare was great, with only some slight swelling and I was given antibiotics in case of any pain or infection. Recovery was also quick and created very little disruption to my daily routine. 

The price for Aptos Thread Lift ranges from RM 3,000 – RM 20,000, and it lasts 1.5 – 2 years depending on the thread composition. This gentle procedure is recommended for all skin types, particularly those with mild to moderate signs of skin ageing. Aptos threads are distributed by Venusys Medical.
