Frequently Asked Questions
What are PDO Cog Threads?
PDO Cog Threads are a new addition to the Matrix PDO Thread range. They are a non-surgical way to lift and improve lower facial folds.
A new type of thread that sits between; PDO Mono Threads & Barbed Lifting Threads
PDO Cog Threads are inserted into the marked area of the mid to lower face, once inserted the threads are gently pulled & trimmed to create your desired lifting effect.
Like PDO Mono Threads, Cog Threads activate collagen synthesis which produces a gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and rejuvenation effect for up to 12 months.
How do PDO Cog Threads tighten the skin?
Like PDO Mono Threads, they induce natural collagen production, which creates a tightening effect, however, PDO Cog Threads provide an additional lifting effect through the lower face.
Results may be seen immediately but will continue to improve over 2 to 6 months. While the threads slowly dissolve, their effects may last up to 12 months.
How many PDO Cog Threads will I need?
The number of Cog Threads required will vary patient to patient, however as a guide we say; approximately 6-18 threads are per side, 12-32 total.
It’s important to note; these threads are not a stand alone treatment, they are used in conjunction with PDO Mono Threads or dermal fillers for the lower face.
How long do the results last?
Generally, the results last up to 12 months. This of course is dependent on the self-care of the patient. For example: Radical changes in weight or general health will of course impact longevity.
When will I see results?
Patients may see results instantly with full effects at 8 – 12 weeks. Results can be expected to improve over time.
Does the procedure hurt?
We use a local anesthetic block before your Cog Thread treatment, so you experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. You may experience a firm feeling and some tenderness in the area that has been treated for a few days after the procedure.
