How do facial threads actually work?

Whether you’re looking to lift your lower face or increase skin firmness, facial threads are a great option with minimal downtime. Facial threads are made of a material known as Polydioxanone (PDO) which when placed under the skin stimulates collagen and elastin production as they dissolve over 6-10 months in most instances.

What can I expect during treatment?

We’re serious about your skin. At Artistic Aesthetics, we use leading non-surgical medical grade treatments to revitalise your skin’s appearance, helping you achieve your aesthetic goals.

Treatment Duration

Typically less than one hour in duration.


After cog lifting threads have been placed under the skin, they can be expected last for 12-24 months.

Recovery Period

We advise patients to refrain from any strenuous exercises that may loosen the threads for approximately 2 weeks.

Expected Results

An immediate lifting effect can be seen after cog lifting threads have been placed under the skin. These are then absorbed by the body over time to promote collagen production.

PDO COG Threads

Non-Surgical Facelift with Cog Threads

PDO cog threads offer a unique advantage as they contain tiny barbs that latch onto the treatment area underneath skin to provide an immediate tightening effect, whilst also enhancing skin health as they dissolve overtime. 

If you’re looking for a TGA approved approach to improve your facial contouring, PDO Cog threads can assist with the following areas:

PDO Mono Threads

Treat the signs of aging using mono threads.

PDO mono threads are an excellent anti-aging cosmetic treatment that enhances collagen and elastin production without lifting the skin. They utilise the same biodegradable material.

We want you to feel good in your skin. PDO mono threads can be used to treat upper facial frown lines and the eyebrow area.

Slowed elastin production makes it harder for skin to rebound. Treatment can support the under eye region and nasolabial folds.

The rejuvenating properties of the dissolving PDO mono threads can be useful for tightening the jawline and neck areas.
