What are Intraline Cog Threads?
Intraline Cog Threads are advanced polydioxanone (PDO) threads intended for facial lifting and skin firming. The threads are forms of mono threads with barbs or cogs that hook into the underside of the skin. Cog threads are used in applications that require skin lifting, such as achieving a V-shaped face.

What are the benefits of this product?
The presence of cogs on these sutures greatly increases its skin-lifting ability, making it appropriate to reposition and tighten skin that has sagged due to the effects of aging. All Intraline Threads, including the Cog Threads, feature unique needles and stoppers that facilitate precise insertion, minimizing breakage and snapping.
How does this product work?
A feature of aging skin is a noticeable loss in elasticity, texture and volume, leading to undesired outcomes like wrinkles and lax skin. Intraline Cog threads are PDO filaments used to lift and tighten sagging skin for the purpose of cosmetic rejuvenation. Cog threads are a type of PDO thread that have barbs along the thread which provide dermal traction. This provides the necessary lifting power to adequately suspend sagging tissue for a tauter and more youthful appearance. The threads also promote collagen deposition around the threads and their barbs, further enhancing results over time.
What are the ingredients?
Intraline Cog Threads are polydioxanone monofilament surgical sutures that contain cogs, or barbs, along the thread.
The C19100 Dimension cog threads have a gauge size of 19G and a length range of 100-140mm. The C2190 models have a gauge size of 21G and a length range of 90-150mm.
How to inject/administer this product
Intraline Cog Threads are administered via injection. Prior to the procedure, patient eligibility is determined through a consultation. The planned entry sites are marked and sterilized with an alcohol swab. The threads are carefully removed from their packaging. Anesthesia (e.g. lidocaine) may be applied to minimize discomfort. To instill a thread, the attached needle is inserted fully into the entry point to the intended length of the treatment area, then simply removed, leaving behind the thread. The suture is then mechanically lifted and tightened to achieve the desired level of correction. The threads are trimmed to finish the procedure.
When should I use this product?
This minimally-invasive procedure is often considered when injectable dermal fillers may not be sufficient to improve the look of winkles or sagging skin. The treatment should be conducted in a medical office setting and typically takes about 30-45 minutes to complete.
What areas can I treat with this product?
Intraline Cog threads may be used to lift and tighten dermal tissue of both facial and non-facial areas. In the face, cog threads are mainly used to lift the jawline, cheek and brow. Furthermore, cogged threads of larger diameter may be used to lift body areas like the buttocks, thighs and abdomen.
How long do results last?
Thread-lifting produces instant results that continue to improve over the course of six to eight months. The majority of patients will find their results last up to 18 months.
What is the expected recovery time for my patients?
No recovery period is necessary; your patient may be able to immediately resume their normal activities after treatment.
