Complexion Skin Clinic is proud to introduce the new generation of thread lifting from Aptos, the world leader in thread lifting technology. Internationally acclaimed and winner of numerous trophies for threads excellence, Aptos has the largest range of threads and thread lifting techniques available in Australia. All Aptos threads are TGA listed and comply with TGA regulations.


If you are looking for a non-surgical way to refresh, revitalise and look younger then an Aptos thread lift could be your answer. Thread lifting is now one of the fastest-growing anti-ageing treatments for facial lifting and body contouring without surgery and with minimal downtime.

An Aptos thread lift is designed to provide lift, tighten saggy skin, smooth wrinkles, stimulate collagen production and improve skin tone and colour to give you a more natural long-lasting appearance. Results are evident immediately and continue to improve over many months. Benefits of a thread lift can continue for several years after treatment. Thread lifting is now a popular procedure to achieve that younger look while improving skin quality.



A thread lift is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. This means there is no cutting of the skin as there is with other surgical procedures. The advantages are a minimum of downtime and a significant cost saving compared to traditional surgical treatments. Typically the procedure takes 30 to 45 minutes and you can return home within a few hours.

Threads are inserted gently into the soft tissue of the areas to be lifted and a local anaesthetic is used to calm the area and ensure a comfortable experience. The threads dissolve within 1.5 to 2 years depending on the composition of the threads, but before they dissolve they create a support scaffolding of collagen for the skin that supports and lifts the skin for many years to come. In addition to the lift effect, a thread lift will create new skin firmness with improved skin colour, skin tone, texture and hydration.

Thread lifts can be used to treat a wide variety of different areas including, smoothing horizontal and vertical forehead wrinkles, lifting the brow and outer eyebrow area and restoring volume to sagging cheeks. They can also smooth lines around the mouth and tighten sagging skin under the lower jaw as well as provide lift and rejuvenation to various parts of the body.

Results are immediately evident and continued improvement is obvious over the coming months. Our doctor may also recommend thread lifting in combination with other treatments such as dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections depending on your requirements.
