COG THREAD LIFT
WHAT IS PDO THREAD THERAPY
Skin rejuvenation from the natural wound healing process.
PDO Thread Therapy originated from the traditional thread-lifting philosophy in Western medicine as well as “threads-embedding therapy” in oriental acupuncture therapy to control and improve tissue stimulation and muscle contraction.
The product used for PDO Thread Therapy is a fine needle (21G-30G) affixed to the absorbable thread (thickness of 0.05mm-0.40mm and length of 25mm-140mm).
The needle is inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, and when it is taken out, the threads remain implanted in the skin. Insertion of numerous needles to the deeper layer of skin with absorbable threads activates their natural regenerative process and mechanical stimulation of wound healing and tissue contraction.
MONO, SCREW AND COG THREADS
The most recent development in thread lifting has been the introduction of cog threads. A move away from the traditional monofilaments to barbed threads, this new shape induces higher chronic inflammatory reaction causing a higher rate of fibroblast conversion during wound healing process.
As a result, clients can achieve a longer lasting and more visible effect after a single treatment. The threads are 100% PDO (Polydioxanone), a clinically proven bio-compatible material that is already widely used in medical suturing.
Polydioxanone (PDS) has a long safety track record in surgery. Ethicon’s wound suturing material PDS 11 is polydioxanone and has been in use for wound closure around the world for over a decade.
In Korea polydioxanone (PDS) has been used for about 6 years in orthopaedic (frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, golf elbow etc.) and cosmetic (skin rejuvenation, skin tightening and face ‘lifting’ indications) procedures.
The popularity of PDO threads can be attributed to the safety of polydioxanone, ease of insertion of the threads, excellent results, minor side effects and the very low incidence of complications.
WHICH AREAS ARE TREATABLE USING PDO THREADS:
PDO 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 eye brow lift.
Local anaesthetic is injected into the treatment area. The PDO Thread will then be introduced using a cannula or micro-needle in the required area. The procedure takes around 45-60 minutes, depending on what treatment you will require. You will need to restrict facial extreme movements,avoiding hot drinks, hard foods that require a lot of chewing and sleep upright position face up to reduce potential swelling for 3-7nights, avoiding strenuous exercise paracetamol can be taken for discomfort.
