COG PDO Thread Lift

Variants and prices listed on the booking page

The “No Blade Facelift” is the new trend made popular by numerous celebrities recently and it is an excellent and effective non-surgical technique to lift and tighten skin. PDO COG threads have the potential to re-define facial contours and induces collagen production. The treatment forms part of an integrated support structure for the tissue of the face by encouraging natural collagen synthesis with immediate results that peak at 6 months and last between 2-3 years.

Treatment’s areas will include the cheeks and jawline. The barbed threads improve facial appearance by immediately lifting & tightening. In the coming months, they will also encourage the production of new collagen in the skin to add volume a rejuvenate skin.

How Does it Work?

The treatment begins with an initial consultation to determine what you are hoping to achieve from the procedure. Your advanced aesthetic practitioner will determine the areas that must be targeted to help you achieve your desired results.

On the day of the treatment, the practitioner will first mark your skin to insert and to establish a direction for the threads that will be inserted. Afterwards, the points of insertion will be thoroughly anesthetised.

Depending on the technique, multiple threads might be inserted at the same point. The PDO threads will be attached to a cannula or needle that the practitioner will insert in your skin and push it through the tissues underneath. They will use a bi-directional approach to suspend, lift, and grasp the facial area. The basket-weave or cross-hatch pattern is usually utilised to attain the desired results.

Once the thread reaches its end point, it will be released and the cannula will be removed from the skin. The practitioner might repeat the process multiple times to achieve the right lift, which means anywhere from one to fifteen threads might be inserted to address the concern.

Lastly, the threads will be smoothened with a gentle massage to prevent any dimpling. The threads, once inserted, produce three effects:

  • Immediate skin lifting.
  • Cellular renewal as the collagen production enhances the texture and elasticity of the skin, removing fine lines.
  • Skin tightening as the fat tissues are contracted due to the threads.

The threads are dissolved naturally through simple hydrolysis. Due to cellular rejuvenation, the lift will stay for longer months. The threads contract the fat in the skin and enhance the production of new blood vessels and collagen to promote microcirculation.

The minimal downtime and instant results are the biggest advantages of this treatment. Moreover, the risks are low due to its non-invasive nature. There are rarely any chances of bleeding, severe bruising, scarring, or any other complication in this procedure.

Some patients might experience infection, irritation, or visible threads under the skin. However, this is a rare occurrence. In this situation, the threads can easily be removed from the skin.

Depending on the thread used and the main goal, your skin will become smoother and firmer. The results of this treatment last for three to six months. However, you will still enjoy the results for a longer duration as the threads also promote collagen production.
