Gwyneth Paltrow was the first celeb to really bring global awareness to thread lifting, and since then it has really become a popular option for those not quite ready for a full facelift but wanting more than just anti-wrinkle injections or a good facial. Now, thread lifting in Australia has taken a giant leap forward with the introduction of the new generation Aptos threads.
What are threads?
There are two types of threads – absorbable, and permanent. They both work in the same way, although absorbable threads are the more popular. Little barbed sutures that act similarly to velcro are inserted in the targeted points in your subcutaneous tissues where they are anchored, and then used to lift your tissues and skin into the desired position. The procedure is considered minimally invasive and the barbed sutures and threads can be inserted through a needle prick so there is no cutting involved and hence no stitches, bandaging or scarring. This also means no downtime.
The other great thing about absorbable threads is that they can last up to 3-4 years depending on your individual skin. Threads also help your skin in other ways including stimulating new collagen growth, improving skin tone, colour and texture and improving hydration. Typically, the benefits of a thread lift will last for many years.
Threads have up to now been more popular for use on the face, however Aptos threads are being used not just on the face (where they are extremely effective) but also in other parts of the body. Check out these before and after photos!
Largest range of threads to suit any area on the body
Aptos are a world leader in thread lifting technology and have the largest range of threads and thread lifting techniques available in Australia – they have over 30 different kinds of threads. This allows them to be used in different places on the body, eg. the really small ones can be used in the lips, or instead of Anti-wrinkle injections in the brow region, or used to fill a wrinkle. They also have a thread that can be used to assist in a neck lift.
Aptos thread lifts are designed to:
- Lift and tighten saggy skin;
- Smooth wrinkles;
- Stimulate collagen;
- Improve skin tone, colour, texture and hydration
Only available to fully qualified doctors and surgeons, Aptos threads have won numerous awards for excellence worldwide.

It allows you to enhance your natural contours and give you a more natural lift. Results of a thread lift are immediate and continue to improve over the months following the procedure.
