Aptos thread lift: a non-surgical facelift

APTOS offers a variety of efficient resorbable and non-resorbable threads.

APTOS is the world leader of tensor threads in facial and body thread lifts. The goal is to achieve a facelift without surgery. Dr. Sulamanidze patented the concept of barbed threads for his company APTOS 30 years ago.

“APTOS Excellence” tensor threads

APTOS Visage Excellence are barbed, removable and bidirectional threads implanted after a local anesthesia.

Dr. Benouaiche (Paris 7) uses APTOS tensor threads because they provide an excellent grasp and offer results that allow a global treatment of the face. The focus is on enhancing facial beauty, not just the sagging.

During the first appointment, Dr. Benouaiche conducts a holistic analysis of your face and recommends the appropriate treatment based on your motivations.

  • A quote as well as an informed consent need to be signed before the treatment.
  • Before and after photos and videos of the face are taken.

To start the treatment, a local anesthesia is performed to maximize comfort and reduces the risks of bruises.

The barbed threads are then inserted using a cannula. There will be only one entry point, and no exit points. The procedure can last about 45 minutes at the practice following the first appointment.

After the procedure, the patient is immediately presentable.

There is no need for social downtime. Any discomfort can be managed with post-treatment painkillers. A follow-up appointment is scheduled with the doctor between 15 days and 1 month after the procedure.
