What are Cog Threads?

Cog threads is the most modern and effective lifting method, which is minimally invasive and aims to treat the relaxation of the skin, neck and face in general, and has as its main goal to restore it to its original state. These threads are absorbable specially designed, like those used by surgeons in operations. This method minimally injures our skin since it uses hooks. The lifting is not done mechanically as with other facelifts where the threads exclusively pull our skin, but it is done through the natural stimulation of collagen and the components of our body. These threads are completely absorbed by the body within 110 to 170 days and are ideal for rejuvenating our skin and lifting loose skin. For this reason, this method is suitable for the regeneration of a young and firm skin.

At what ages is this treatment addressed?

This application is recommended for ages over 30-35, where collagen production is lower and our needs are greater. We must keep in mind that the older we are, the denser the plexus must be in order to be able to create the right amount of collagen.

What is the treatment process?

COG threads are biodegradable and are placed under the skin to tighten it. Before this intervention, the specialist doctor put us a local anesthesia with a cream (usually) or an anesthetic solution. These threads are then placed under the skin with a small tube or very fine needle attached to the thread. An average of 2 to 4 threads are used on each side of the face. The needle is inserted into the inner layer and when removed the threads remain inside the skin. These are 100% polydioxanone, a clinically proven biocompatible and bioabsorbable material that has been used for many years in medicine. Therefore, anyone who does not want to undergo surgery but wants to see immediate results can absolutely prefer this method.

How long is it in total?

The time required is about 30 to 40 minutes. This method can be differentiated according to the needs of each body. For example, some may require sutures with hooks, others may find meshing under the skin more effective, and others may require a combination of methods.

Where does this method apply?

  • cheekbones
  • double chin
  • neckline
  • chin
  • neck
  • hands
  • thighs
  • belly

When will the results be visible?

The results of the threads will be visible immediately, but as the days pass they will become more and more obvious! The final result will be seen in about 6 months, because thanks to the threads, collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid will have been produced

Are there side effects?

This method is particularly safe, as the complete absorption of the threads by the body ensures the desired result and excludes any possibility of infection, thus side effects. Nevertheless, it is possible that there will be some bruising or even irritation, which will disappear permanently after a few days. Additionally, there is a slight chance of micro-ecchymosis in the placement process, a side effect that subsides within a week.

What should we watch out for after the treatment?

What we must pay attention to initially is to avoid irritation and friction of the area where the operation was performed. We should also avoid sports activities for one to one and a half weeks. As with any other intervention, if there is pain, it can be treated with painkillers after first consulting our doctor. Also, it can be observed for a few days, a slight discomfort during the chewing of hard foods, and during intense expressions.
