Non-Surgical Facelift with Cog Threads

At Facethetics Skin Clinic, we are delighted to offer non-surgical facelift treatments using cog threads, a minimally invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the skin for a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Cog threads are bio-absorbable sutures inserted beneath the skin to provide immediate lifting and support, stimulating collagen production for long-lasting results. Whether you’re looking to address sagging skin, redefine facial contours, or restore youthful facial harmony, our cog thread facelift treatments can help you achieve natural-looking results with minimal downtime.

What are Cog Threads?

Cog threads are specialty sutures used to raise and tighten sagging face tissues. They are constructed of bioabsorbable polymers like polydioxanone (PDO) or polylactic acid (PLA). These threads have small cogs or barbs that attach to the skin and give instant support and lifting. The threads improve skin elasticity and firmness over time by inducing collagen formation, resulting in long-lasting effects. Cog threads are a great substitute for conventional surgical facelifts, providing rejuvenation that looks natural with less discomfort and downtime.


Our non-surgical facelift with cog threads at Facethetics Skin Clinic is performed by experienced practitioners trained in advanced thread lifting techniques. Here’s what you can expect during your treatment:

1.Consultation: You will speak with one of our practitioners about your expectations, worries, and aesthetic goals prior to the procedure. We will evaluate the areas of concern, skin quality, and facial anatomy to see if a cog thread facelift is the best course of action for you.
2. Treatment Planning: A treatment plan that is personalized to you and your objectives will be developed by our practitioner. In order to lift and tighten sagging skin and redefine facial contours, this may entail focusing on particular parts of the face, such as the brows, jawline, or cheeks.

3. Preparation: To reduce discomfort during the process, a local anesthetic may be given after the treatment area has been cleaned. To help with the placement of the cog threads, our practitioner will indicate precise insertion sites along the treatment region.

4. Thread Insertion: Our practitioner will delicately place the cog threads beneath the skin using a cannula or small needle to ensure the best possible lifting and support. Tiny cogs or barbs in the threads attach to the skin to produce instant tightening and lifting effects.

5. Stimulation of Collagen Production: After being inserted, the cog threads promote the formation of collagen, which gradually improves the firmness and suppleness of the skin. This biostimulation effect contributes to better skin quality and long-term preservation of facelift effects.

6. Post-Treatment Care: You might have some little bruising, swelling, or discomfort in the treated area after the surgery, but these side effects normally pass quickly. Following your cog thread facelift, our practitioner will provide you aftercare guidelines to maximize recovery and results.


  •  Immediate Lifting and Tightening: Cog threads provide immediate lifting and tightening effects, resulting in a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
  • Stimulates Collagen Production: By stimulating collagen production, cog threads enhance skin elasticity and firmness, improving skin quality and maintaining results over time.
  • Natural-Looking Results: Cog thread facelifts offer natural-looking rejuvenation, restoring facial contours and harmony without the need for surgery or extensive downtime.
  • Minimal Downtime: Unlike traditional surgical facelifts, cog thread facelifts require minimal downtime, allowing you to resume your normal activities shortly after the procedure.

Side Effects

While cog thread facelifts are generally safe, some potential side effects may occur, including:

  • Temporary Swelling and Bruising: Mild swelling, bruising, or redness may occur in the treated area, but these side effects typically subside within a few days.
  • Discomfort: Some individuals may experience temporary discomfort or tenderness at the insertion sites following the procedure, but these side effects are usually mild and manageable with over-the-counter pain medication.


To promote optimal healing and maximize the results of your cog thread facelift, it’s essential to follow these aftercare guidelines:

  • Avoid Strenuous Activity: Avoid strenuous exercise and activities that may strain the treated area for at least one to two weeks following the procedure to minimize the risk of complications.
  • Protect from Sun Exposure: Protect your skin from direct sun exposure and wear sunscreen with a high SPF daily to prevent sun damage and maintain the results of your facelift.
  • Follow-Up Appointments: Schedule follow-up appointments with our practitioner to monitor your progress, assess your results, and address any concerns or questions you may have.
