To eliminate age-related changes, as well as correct and model aesthetic disadvantages, APTOS offers a wide range of absorbable and non-absorbable threads.
· The resorbable threads are made from the copolymer L-lactide which is completely biocompatible with the human body and excludes the possibility of an allergic reaction. Polylactic acid, which is included in the composition of the threads, activates the production of collagen and thus provides an additional rejuvenating effect, while slowing down the aging process until the moment of their complete resorption. The effect of the procedure lasts about 2-3 years, depending on the physiological characteristics of the patient, his lifestyle and the recommendations during the recovery period after the procedure;
· Non-absorbable threads consist of a medical suture material of polypropylene and are most often used to correct deep wrinkles and prominent wrinkles. The result lasts on average to 5 years.
The type of threads is determined by the doctor during the preliminary consultation, based on the task, the age of the patient and the severity of the problem.
The most common complications of facial thread lifting are, in the following order, skin dimpling, contour irregularity, visible threads, and thread extrusion. The reasons for complications are mainly unfamiliarity with facial anatomy, unskilled surgical operation, and misunderstanding of the facial aesthetics of Asian women. Thread lifting technology is a nonsurgical facial rejuvenation technology that can minimize postoperative recovery period and scar from the incision.
Thread correction refers to low-traumatic methods and is considered a relatively painless procedure. However, even a small puncture requires anesthesia. Therefore, for the comfort of patients, doctors use local anesthesia, which involves the introduction of an anesthetic solution into the puncture area and over the contour of the threads implantation. In patients, the implantation does not cause painful sensations, however, anesthesia can cause some discomfort, slight unpleasant sensations at the beginning of the procedure and after the procedure when anesthesia ceases.
Women should also plan the procedure according to their menstrual cycle, because during the first week, many have increased sensitivity - the pain threshold can increase discomfort, even from minimal intervention.
Facial thread lifting technology has been applied for more than 30 years, with relatively few complications. In 2014, China approved polydioxanone thread (an absorbable barbed thread) for large-scale nonsurgical facial lifting. However, due to surgeons’ lack of overall experience, the complications of polydioxanone thread facelift have been relatively high.
