Aptos Thread Lifts

lift and tighten sagging facial tissue

The brand new Aptos Thread with Hyaluronic Acid now at Renovatio Clinic

The thread lift is an exciting new technique used to lift and tighten sagging facial tissue. This non-surgical alternative is growing in popularity. Specialized threads are inserted and attached into the deeper tissues of the skin and, if positioned properly, create a firming and tightening effect. An added benefit is that threads stimulate the formation of collagen. 

Compared to surgical face lifting, thread lifting involves far less trauma. There are no visible scars. No skin is cut away. The procedure is quick (20 to 40 minutes depending on how many threads you are having inserted) and has a low risk of infection.

The initial results are seen immediately, and results continue to improve, as the collagen and elastin form and mature. Thread lifting can last anywhere from 18 to 24 months, but some people report effects for even longer.

P(LACL)HA thread is improved formulation, which ensures additional benefit for the skin. Skin elasticity and texture is visible right after thread implantation.

Elastin

Elastin is fibrillar protein, one of the most important components of derma intercellular matrix. Elastin contains atypical amino acids – desmosine and isodesmosine. Elastin structure ensures skin turgor and elasticity. Due to tissue reaction (increased elastin content in the dermis), the face looks younger and fresh.

Collagen

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and gives structure not only skin, but also bones, muscles, and all other connective tissue. Body produces less of it as you get older, which results in fine lines and wrinkles.

Hyaluronic acid

Hyaluronic acid is a natural ingredient of human skin. It is produced by fibroblasts, which make the structural framework for human tissues. Hyaluronic acid fills intercellular areas and makes a perfect environment for skin cells. It is also responsible for stimulating the production of collagen and protecting all skin elements from exposure to free radicals.

Hyaluronic acid also contributes to tissue hydrodynamics; it is responsible for the amount of water tied in the skin, which makes it an ideal moisturizing factor. However, over time human skin begins to lose its natural resources of hyaluronic acid, which affects the work of fibroblasts. Consequently, the amount of collagen decreases, which makes human skin lose its volume.
