COG threads are essentially mono threads with barbs to hook to the underside of the skin. The barbs form a support structure that lifts the sagging tissue. Unlike mono threads, cog threads do not need anchoring points. Collagen formation can also occur around the threads and their barbs. Cog threads are most effective for jawline lifting and slimming.
PDO Cog Threads can very effectively strengthen the contour of the face, reduce roundness, lift sagging skin in the cheeks, jowls, neck, and also produce an excellent eyebrow lift.
PDO Cog Thread lift is a very safe procedure and complications are extremely rare. Minor complications may include temporary swelling and bruising. Patients may feel slight tightness or a pulling sensation following the treatment but this subsides over a few weeks.
This varies depending on the patient’s age at the time of treatment, the quality of the skin, degree of sagging and the number of threads used. However, studies have shown that results of the thread face lift can last between 2-3 years.
These threads are 100% Polydioxanone which is a clinically proven bio-compatible and bio-absorbable material that is already widely used medical suturing.
For the face, these would be lifting of the eye brows, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, cheeks, jaw line and double chins.
The best candidates for a thread face lift are men and women who are beginning to experience the appearance of wrinkles on the forehead, drooping of the brow, sagging of the mid and lower face, visible jowls and loose skin on the neck.
