“Dermal, bio-absorbable Body Threads achieve all the spectacular results of invasive lifting, but without surgery and recovery time. Over time, the skin’s supportive tissue “ages”, which becomes visible in the facial contours and sagging-prone areas of the body such as the thighs, buttocks, abdomen and chest,” explains the Dermatologist – Venereologist Dr. Konstantina Mamali.
There are 2 basic types of threads that are applied to the body, PDO Threads and COG Threads.
In the case of PDO Threads, the qualified doctor inserts the ultra-thin PDO Threads horizontally or vertically – depending on the needs of the problematic area – with the help of a very small needle, creating a grid that holds the loosened skin, giving tightening and improving the texture of the skin.
The procedure for inserting COG Threads is simple and can optionally be preceded by the application of a local anesthetic cream. The qualified practitioner inserts the serrated COG Threads, also known as Anchor Threads, along a selected track – predetermined according to the needs of the problematic area – and then these threads are stretched, causing an immediate visible lift.
Both PDO and COG Threads are fully absorbable and the number used depends on the needs of the area to be treated. Microtrauma stimulates local production of new Collagen and Elastin and therefore the results of the method increase over time.
Areas Of Application
Body Threads can be safely applied to any area of the body where there is skin sagging, especially to:
- Face – Neck
- Chest – Chest – Arms
- Thighs – Buttocks
Before – After Results
The results of Body Thread treatment using COG Threads are visible immediately after their application, while in the case of PDO Threads the anaplastic results are gradually perfected.
In both cases, the bio-dermal threads are absorbed within 6-8 months and their effect can reach 1.5-2 years, depending on the degree of relaxation that previously existed.
