Cog/ PDO threads, the ‘No Blade Face Lift’ is the ultimate and latest technology in thread lifting. Thread lifts are non-surgical treatments that lift the face using specially designed threads, without having to make surgical incisions. It is crucial to acknowledge that as we get older the deeper layers of our skin lose some key components such as collagen and elastin, causing wrinkle and lines to develop on the surface of our skin. COGS/PDO threads can be safely inserted into the deep layers of skin, the tags then hold onto the skin, so that when it tightens it pulls the skin up. Flattening out any lines or wrinkles and helping to shape your skin to your natural look.
At UK Aesthetics Clinic prior to having COG/PDO Threads, you will be assessed by one of our qualified Practitioners who will review your medical history, take pre-treatment photos and will discuss any questions or concerns you may have about the procedure.
