Renovating beauty without boundaries

In 1966 Aptos was the first manufacturer of barbed suture in the world manufactured in Moscow Russia. Made of polylactic acid, caprolactone and hyaluronic acid. Aptos threads allow doctors to achieve the effects of plastic surgery without the anaesthesia, incisions and long recovery time.

These threads absorb up to 50% for the first 1.5 years although the lifting effect is kept for 2 years. It has excellent fixation without loss of thread strength.

Due to the composition the biodegration is slowed down and the duration is increased. Barbs are fixed to the tissues.

After the thread is inserted it stimulates a body reaction under the skin which produces fibroblasts which produce collagen type I which is the skeleton of the dermis and enhances strength and collagen type III and elastin which leads to long lasting fresh results and tissue hydration.

The hyaluronic acid reduces inflammatory reactions in the body, speeds up rehabilitation time and reduces risk. Clinically this results in instant lifting but also significantly improved skin texture.
