Efficient and long-term with Spiral Cogs threads
The spiral COG sutures from EpLine made of fully degradable and biocompatible material consist of polydioxanonewhich has been used for decades throughout the world as a surgical suture material and has also been used in plastic chirogy for about 15 years. A treatment with PDO sutures is almost painlessas the areas to be treated are first locally anaesthetised. The quantity of sutures to be used depends on the desired result. 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. Slight haematomas or swellingAfter the treatment, they generally subside completely within a few days. The special barbs of the PDO 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 and the volume effect develops after two to three months. In total, the effect lasts up to 2 years.
