30 minutes is all it takes.
First, patients will be given local anaesthesia. Afterwards, the doctor will insert a series of mini PDO absorbable sutures just under the skin. A needle helps to slide the threads into the right position, lifting the skin for a more youthful look.
Eventually, the sutures under the skin will stimulate the body’s selective inflammatory response, causing the skin to heal itself by creating new collagen. This natural reaction gradually replaces lost volume in sunken and sagging areas, enhancing the volume and creating a lift to your face.
The 100% bio-compatible suture will be fully absorbed within 4-6 months, and expelled naturally out of the body.
PDO (polydioxanone) suture is widely used to perform cardiac surgery. The N-COG Lift PDO sutures are CE marked – a certification that indicates conformity with health, safety and environmental protection standards according to the EU’s directives. Hence, the PDO sutures are guaranteed safe to be used in the body.
The patented sutures
- High-precision needles and cannulas for accuracy
- Tiny barbs on the thread give a strong grip on the tissues
- Multi-directional cogs allow uniform distribution of strength, holding tissues evenly
- Low risk of inflammation and protrusion
- Non-toxic and no bacterial migration
Which is The
Know the Differences
|Facelift Surgery||N-COG LIFT|
|The procedure||Begins with incision in the area of the temple hair. The skin is gently lifted to reposition and tighten the underlying muscle and connective tissue. Some fats may be surgically removed, as well as excess skin.||The threads are inserted under the skin in precise locations using a small hollow needle to lift and support droopy elements without removing any skin. The inserted thread is then able to grasp onto the droopy skin and soft tissue to reposition the skin.|
|Sedation||General anaesthesia||Local anaesthesia|
|Areas of treatment||Brows, cheeks (midface), lower face, jowls, and the upper neck.||Brows, cheeks (midface), lower face, jowls, upper neck, and also under eyes.|
|Downtime||2 – 3 weeks||Almost none or 1 day (subject to individual)|
|Procedure duration||2 – 4 hours||30 minutes – 1 hour|
|Result duration||5 – 10 years||1 year|
