APTOS have also developed the VITIS and NANO SPRING threads which can be used more superficially for what is known as ‘armouring’ of the tissues, specifically targeted the superficial skin in the face, neck and body to induce collagen and elastin, helping to correct fine lines and wrinkles and generally improving skin quality.
The APTOS SPRING threads are designed to work as a ‘spring’ allowing fixation in mobile parts of the face, lifting and supporting the tissues long term. They are ideal for use around the mouth to lift mouth corners and nasolabial folds as well as used for nose tip lifting and brow lifting.Dr Rory often uses a combination of the APTOS threads to create a bespoke and personalised treatment tailored to your needs to create natural, but long-lasting results.
What is the typical downtime?
Some discomfort may be experienced during the treatment, pain & tenderness may occur at the injection sites or along the tract of the thread for up to 2 weeks post treatment. With any treatment, bruising of the treated area may occur.
What can’t you do after the treatment and for how long?
Your face will feel numb and your mouth may be asymmetrical for a few hours post-treatment, similar to that of dental injections. Please refrain from chewing and drinking hot liquids until your face has regained full sensation. Healing may be delayed by smoking. Appropriate sun protection is very important (SPF 50 is advised). Do not open the mouth wide and do not have routine dental treatment for at least 4 weeks after the treatment. Avoid taking aspirin for 7 days after the treatment unless it is prescribed for a medical reason. Avoid extreme temperatures (sauna, etc.) and exercise for 7 days after the treatment. Avoid having other cosmetic treatment for 14 days after the treatment.
Who cannot have the treatment?
If you are considering having a thread lift, please book a consultation so that we can advise if you are a suitable candidate for threads as this is on a case by case basis at Dr Rory’s discretion, we will advise on the best options for you.
