Intraline Cog Threads are threads made of a barbed polydioxanone (PDO) filament. These threads can be inserted into the skin as part of a thread lift procedure, which is a non-invasive approach of instantly tightening the skin. These threads are manufactured by Intraline, a British company that specializes in aesthetics and produces products like dermal fillers along with its line of threads. Intraline Cog Threads are CE-marked and the company’s top-of-the-line lifting thread. Intraline Cog Threads are available in foil packs of 20 (10 packs of two threads).
Out of all the PDO threads in Intraline’s catalogue, Intraline Cog Threads provides the maximum amount of tensile strength and hold.
Intraline Cog Threads are used to tighten and lift sagging skin. These threads are useful for treating a number of issues related to skin sagging, including wrinkles, nasolabial folds, and smile lines, among a number of others. Once inserted into the skin, the threads immediately tighten and lift the skin and start to stimulate the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. These substances further improve the skin.
When inserted into the subcutaneous layer of the skin, these threads act as an integrated support network for the skin. The threads on their own tighten the skin through the structural support they provide, but they also stimulate the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. The collagen further lifts and tightens the skin, the hyaluronic acid provides hydration, and the elastin provides the skin with improved elasticity. Between the structural support provided by the threads themselves and the increased production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin, Intraline Cog Threads can tighten and lift skin, improve its appearance, and stall the aging process.
Intraline Cog Threads should only be inserted by a medical professional that has been trained on how to insert Intraline’s PDO threads.
Intraline Cog Threads provide immediate tightening and lifting effects once they are inserted. However, the results that Intraline Cog Threads provide only continue to improve for six to eight months after the insertion procedure because of the threads’ ability to stimulate the production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin. Overall, the results that come about through the use of Intraline Cog Threads can last for up to two years. However, the exact duration of these results is dependent on the patient’s lifestyle, age, and a number of other factors.
Intraline Cog Threads are safe. They have been extensively tested for safety, and the PDO that these threads are made of is CE-certified. The PDO used in Intraline Cog Threads does not produce skin reactions, allergic reactions, or side effects. In fact, PDO is such a safe material that it is often used during heart surgery, so patients can feel comfortable about their safety if they decide to undergo treatment with Intraline Cog Threads.
Intraline Cog Threads are made of polydioxanone, which is a polymer. Polydioxanone is made through the polymerization of p-dioxanone and is an extremely safe substance for subcutaneous insertion.
