Efficient and long-term with 3D Cogs threads
The 3D COG threads of EpLine made of fully degradable and biocompatible material consist of polydioxanonewhich has been used for decades all over the world as surgical suture material. Treatment with the PDO sutures is almost painlessas the areas to be treated are first locally anaesthetised. The quantity of sutures to be used depends on the area to be tightened – there is no limit. The one hundred percent resorbable, biocompatible sutures made of polydioxanone are inserted subcutaneously using a very fine needle. There, they form a stable network which significantly tightens the skin structure due to the resulting tensile stress and the increased build-up of the body’s own fibrin and collagen in the treated area. In addition, the skin can be returned to its original position. Slight haematomas or swellingThe effects that may occur depend on the area treated and the amount of threads placed – but they usually subside quickly. The special barbs of the POD sutures are designed to fix and support the skin tissue in different directions for long term results and efficient anchoring. The pull that the threads exert on the skin causes a lifting effect that reduces the depth of wrinkles and tightens sagging skin. The lifting effect is immediately visible, but fully develops after two to three months. In total, it lasts up to 18 months.
Resorbable, biocompatible polydioxanone (PDO) filaments for restructuring collagen fibres The thread dissolves without residue after a few weeks. The lifting effect is retained in the tissue by collagenesis. Natural and lasting anti – aging without surgery. The Cog threads have barbs that are positioned at a 120° angle around the thread. The filling effect, the lifting effect and the tensile strength of the thread in the tissue are significantly increased compared to double cogs. The placement of the thread in the fabric can be done very precisely. The immediately visible lifting effect and the relatively robust thread promote the use of the thread in larger areas of the body with a high volume requirement. The threads are also available as Blunt Canulla.
