The new 3D cog thread is one of the latest groundbreaking designs, optimising therapeutic results with PDO sutures.
Until today, barbed threads only had cogs on one side of the filament. This, in turn, enabled an anchoring effect (COG design) or a tensile strength effect (P-COG design) in a single plane of the filament (single tension force vector). The new 3D design introduces a technological innovation by incorporating cogs throughout the entire perimeter of the filament (360º).
The use of 3D cog threads is especially recommended for patients with prior surgical liftings (elevated tissue fibrosis). Application with a cannula in this type of patient could result in delayed healing, and be problematic and painful. An appropriate needle bevel must be used to warrant accurate and dynamic treatment and tissue passage, enabling the practitioner to insert the thread in the relevant area and on the correct plane.
3D needle threading is the preferred choice for patients with thicker, tougher tissue and more compact skin.
- 3D cog threads
- Manages body sagging
- Specially indicated for:
- Body sagging, since body tissue is “heavier” than face tissue
- Patients with prior surgical liftings
- Guaranteed accurate and dynamic treatment and tissue passage
