The use of aptos threads, polypropylene or metallic with unidirectional cogs or sharp edges, allows the gathering of the soft tissues, creating lift and volume contouring. The technique is simple, with insertion of the threads in the desired positions with a long injection needle as a guide. It was later noticed that in some cases of rejuvenation and lifting surgeries, the threads with prominences alone, did not always lead to desirable long-lasting outcomes and additional lift and suture by smooth threads was also needed.
There is an Aptos thread and thread lifting method to help you achieve your beauty needs. It is known that facial and cervical layers of soft tissues can be shifted relative to each other, but only in specific and different blocks and areas. For instance, it is easy to shift skin of lateral areas of the forehead, eyebrow tail, mental area, cheek and malar areas. At the same time, any attempt to shift tissues of the posterior area of the face above the malar bone and its arch perimeter is difficult since in this area the skin is closely tied to the periosteum. Prominences on threads are located in every 0.5 mm and each of them is responsible for its own tissue area. This is the major difference of Aptos from classical and endoscopic lifting methods, where mobilized tissues (skin, Subcutaneous Muscle Aponeurosis ) are lifted and hung only to points fixed by stitches.

Right after this, starts the second wave of increased collagen synthesis which is caused by polylactic acid activity. All above-mentioned processes explain the prompt bio-revitalization effect on skin structure. The threads dissolve within 1.5 to 2 years depending on the composition of the threads, but before they dissolve, they create a support scaffolding of collagen for the skin that supports and lifts the skin for many years to come.
