Description of Treatment

As we age the skin on the neck becomes thinner, more coarsely wrinkled, and starts to sag or droop downwards. Previously only plastic surgery could help correct age-related complaints with this difficult to treat area. However, since the invention of PDO Threads we now have a very effective way of tightening and lifting the skin in the neck with minimal downtime and minimal side effects. Please note, treating the neck is typically only done in conjunction with treating the jawline/chin and jowls, as treating just the neck alone can result in an unnatural look.

Lifting or Cog Threads are strategically inserted into the skin to provide immediate lifting and tightening. In addition, once inserted the implantation of the Threads stimulates the body’s own natural production of Collagen and Elastin. The lifting effect is at its peak after six months via biological (enzymatic) absorption or hydrolysis, from there the threads will be absorbed into the body leaving new collagen in their place. Once the Threads are absorbed the skin will be left visibly improved. Our treatments use the highest quality CE marked PDO (Polydioxanone) Threads and are provided by individually trained practitioners. They also stimulate the development of new blood vessels and improve lymphatic drainage, giving way to better skin quality with a smoother, brighter appearance. The results start immediately and will continue to improve for 6-8 months, ultimately lasting up to 18 months.

  • Instant & long-term results
  • Lifting or Cog Threads immediately lift and tighten the skin on the neck
  • Improve skin laxity, reduces pore size and enhances overall skin tone
  • Collagen regeneration accelerates over time improving the appearance of wrinkles and folds, enhancing elasticity, brightening the patient’s complexion and improving the appearance of aging skin
  • Improves blood and lymph circulation. The results are a significant improvement in the complexion and skin texture, providing a more relaxed, rested appearance
  • The implanted threads stimulate the macrophages, which can aid the natural healing process by reducing inflammation and triggering the immune system. Activation of lymph channels and circulation helps mobilize and eliminate fatty deposits
