The yarns are polylactic acid (PLA), soluble, biocompatible and biodegradable with long absorption time (12 to 18 months). They stimulate fibroblasts to produce new collagen. The procedure is done by Dr. Albanopoulou in the medical office with local anesthesia and application time 30 to 50 minutes!
The thin absorbent multi-stranded and single-stranded PDO threads are placed subcutaneously with the help of a very fine needle and we essentially make a high-lift subcutaneous mesh that tightens and lifts the tissue for 18 to 24 months without disruption. They are FDA and CE approved.
There are various types of PDO threads that either form a reinforced inner backing web that supports the tissues in a completely secure manner, or act as a direct pull for lifting. In the first category belong the PDO monoclones and the most powerful spirals. In the second category belong the hooks (PDO COG).
APTOS VISAGE threads are named from the AntiPTOtic System and are the most specialized for lifting, a method that approaches surgical face lifting, therefore reducing and postponing such cases.
Among the APTOS threads there are small opposite cones that lift the skin. These cones are made of polylactic acid, a substance that stimulates fibroblasts to produce new collagen.
Collagenesis generally caused by the presence of polylactic acid generates a gradual improvement, rapid and immediate (immediately after the application), hence its name “Lunch Time” Facelift! The result lasts for almost 2 years!
