The latest trend for thread lifting is the usage of Polydioxanone (PDO) threads which is absorbed by the skin after several months. At the same time, this process stimulates and induces collagen production over the course of about 8 months, with the effects lasting typically 2 years. The two main types are used at our clinic, Mono threads and Cog threads.
Mono threads : Many of these thread type are placed into the face in a mesh-like fashion for skin tightening effect. Skin tightening usually improves after collagen starts forming around the threads.
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.
The treatment is suitable for:
- Brow lift
- Sagging cheeks
- Nose to mouth folds
- Jaw line
