Smooth and Long Barb
Buy Smooth and Long Cog Thread Barb At One Place
Yastrid cog thread bard, unlike products from other brands, is smooth and long, which opens like an umbrella and is easy to hang on the skin for a more extended period. These barbs not only ensure the thread doesn’t move but also cause tiny abrasions in the skin tissues, triggering the wrinkled/sagging skin to produce collagen naturally. This collagen formation with a cog thread barb creates a redefined face shape and has a long-lasting effect.
Extremely Effective and Durable
Strong Lifting Effect for the Best Sagging Skin Solution
Yastrid’s cog threads barb distance is 1.5mm, indicating more barbs on each thread. This distance is ideal as it becomes easier for doctors to catch the patient’s skin tissue — making the results even more promising.
Many companies keep cog thread bard distance 1.8mm, which isn’t ideal as fewer barbs on thread mean it is challenging to catch skin tissue. This makes Yastrid Cog Threads a far more superior product.

Cog Thread – The Ultimate FAQ Guide
Aging causes less collagen production in our skin and loss of facial fat, especially around the eye, neck, cheeks, and jowls. For this reason, the most recent development in the cosmetic industry is the introduction of Cog threads – widely used in medical suturing.
Thread lifting techniques like PDO cog threads pull your sagging skin upwards as threads are arranged in a crisscross pattern which helps promote collagen regeneration naturally. But a lot of confusion exists for this loudest buzzes treatment in the aesthetic industry.
Read this guide until the end if you’re confused and interested in learning more about the cog thread.
What Do Cog Threads Do?
As you age, your skin’s connective tissues start becoming thinner and undergo a type of ‘breakdown’ – lower collagen production. The face thus loses its elasticity, and you can see wrinkles start appearing. To combat this issue, COG Threads are specially designed – having a barbed texture – to anchor more firmly within your aging skin, stimulate collagen production, and give a better lifting effect.
Cog threads have barbs (a sharp point with a bit of curve near the end of an arrow) that hook onto the skin to give support and lift the sagging tissue.
These barbs make sure the cog thread doesn’t move. Moreover, barbs cause minor abrasions in your skin tissues, triggering the production of natural collagen. This collagen offers a better facelift – forms a new face shape – and makes the effect more effective and long-lasting.
What Are Cog Threads Made Of?
Cog threads are Polydioxanone (PDO) and PCL (polycaprolactone), which are bio-compatible materials clinically proven by surgeons and popular in medical suturing.
What Is PDO Double Needle Cog Thread?
As the name suggests, a double-needle thread has two straight needles and one barbed PDO thread used for V-lifting, most commonly for eye lifting.
The most significant advantage of using double-needle cog thread is that there’s less use of threads. For example, you usually need 6pcs of threads for face lifting, but with double-needle cog thread, you only need 2pcs.
Are Cog Threads Safe?
Yes, cog thread lift is a low-risk procedure as you know that it is non-invasive and has no risk of severe bleeding, scarring, bruising or other complications post-treatment.
In sporadic and exceptional cases, patients may experience a little discomfort or their sutures (aka stitches) becoming visible under their skin.

Yes, the results of the cog thread lift look natural and leave no scars.
The biocompatible cog threads are absorbable and dissolve into the skin within 4 to 6 months of the procedure.

Moreover, cog thread also works as an alternative to non-surgical rhinoplasty.
The Goal of Cog Threads Procedure – Moderate Facelift
Will You Be Able to See The Cog Threads?
No, once inserted under your SMAS layer of the skin, the cog threads cannot be seen as it is very deep.
How Many Threads Are Used in a Cog Thread Lift?
A cog thread lift is customized as per the patient skin type, skin texture, and desired aesthetic goals. Usually, ten to fifteen pcs of barbed threads will be placed in the treated area; however, for better effect, your doctor can suggest twenty to thirty pcs for whole face lifting.

The doctors perform this procedure for a non-surgical eyelift/eyebrow lift or other body parts; the bulging stomach, fat thighs, and sagging upper arms.
In any case, you must be in good health and keep realistic expectations of cog thread lift treatment best suited to people who want to enhance/contour their skin appearance without undergoing invasive cosmetic surgery.
How Do You Use COG Threads?
The doctor will first inject a local anesthetic in the targeted area. After that, with the help of a sharp needle, the doctor will inject a small hole into your skin. A needle is required for this job because cog thread is a blunt cannula, and you cannot insert it directly into the skin, so with the help of the needle, the thread will then be inserted into your SMAS.
Just remember: There’s no need for individual microcannula because a cog thread is a blunt cannula with a PDO barbed suture inside – enough to do the procedure alone.
How Long Do Cog Thread Lift Procedure Last?
The cog thread lift procedure usually takes 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the treatment you require.
How Long Do Cog Threads Results Last?
PDO and PCL cog threads treatment encourages natural collagen synthesis. PDO threads start absorbing after one month, and results last up to 8 to 12 months.
PCL starts absorbing at four months, but usually, results will last 4 to 5 years.
However, the specific duration of your results is dependent on factors like the type and number of threads used to lift your skin, your age, the quality of the skin, your metabolism, degree of sagging, and several other factors.
Do Cog Threads Dissolve?
Yes, cog threads dissolve within 4 to 5 months after treatment. Once the threads dissolve, your skin benefits from collagen growth, which decreases fine lines and wrinkles, gives lifting tighter skin, a bright complexion, and a smooth skin texture.
An “absorbable cog thread” means that the thread will naturally break down and dissolve – after a few months passed- into the human body.
As said above, the number one absorbable cog thread is made up of Polydioxanone, which in the past was used for surgical stitches and most commonly used in HIKO nose thread lift.
Remember: Cog thread is highly safe but choosing a good quality FDA-approved thread with a longer lifetime is exceptionally beneficial.
*Yastrid cog threads are FDA approved and highly safe to use.
Can Cog Threads Be Removed?
Barbed and cogged threads, once inserted inside your skin, can only be removed with complication. If your doctor leaves the thread end in a superficial plane, there are high chances of granuloma formation – infections and inflammation.
What Does A Cog Thread Lift Feel Like?
That is a good question. Although cog thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure, still you may – possibly but not certainly – feel tightening/ light pressure under your skin.
But there are many factors associated with thread lifts that will determine how you feel after the treatment. Cog threads come in both small and large sizes. If you have gone through the facelift threads treatment, you may sometimes – for a few months – feel the cones under the thinnest area of your skin.
This happens because the larger cog threads have spirals, so you can occasionally feel a little discomfort. In contrast, the smaller cog threads are fine, get absorbed fast, and never show bumps.
Likewise, the pressure of threads you feel also depends on the expertise how they are placed. If the cog threads are placed deep inside the skin, you won’t get the desired result, and it depends on the physician’s experience to put them at the right level, so you get the best results without any feeling of discomfort.
Can Cog Thread Lift Break?
Yes, the threads may break if the patient rubs the skin hard, does excess facial movement, or gets exposed to moist environments.
What Happens If The Cog Thread Breaks?
The broken PDO cog thread poses no threat to the patient as this pull will settle with time.
The thread breakage occurs at the end – usually on the side of the jaw or below the neck – near the incision point. Although it doesn’t become visible, you can feel it.
How Do You Care After Cog Thread Lift Treatment?
In general, you can experience (but not necessarily) mild pain and swelling that lasts for 24-48 hours post-procedure. As per doctors ‘ advice, this is normal and can be treated at home by using a cold compress in the treated area while following other instructions and keeping your head elevated.
Unlike surgical procedures, there’s no rest required, and you can resume normal daily activities soon after the cog thread treatment. However, you should take care to ensure no undue pressure is put on the treated area.
Cog Thread Lift Aftercare

When Can You Wear Makeup After Cog Thread Treatment?
It is not advisable to wear makeup soon after you get the treatment. However, in most cases, patients can wear lightweight moisturizer, sunscreen, a light foundation/concealer straight after treatment.
Just remember: If mild bruising occurs, you can cover this up using a lightweight natural shade concealer. But before application, do consult with your doctor.
Can You Use Cog Thread For Eye /Eyebrow Lift?
PDO Cog threads are synthetic, absorbable sutures that are entirely safe for eye lift treatment. Eye wrinkles occur due to the natural degradation of the muscles from aging – and the skin loses natural elasticity and collagen. Likewise, some people face skin sagging around the eye, which also happens due to the same reason. In both cases, cog thread lift treatment works best.
Note: The best size cog thread for eyebrow lift is 21g 60mm and 21g 90mm.
Remember: Non-Surgical eye lifts are painless — as no large incisions in the skin are required and are performed with topical anesthesia. This less invasive treatment has minimal downtime, faster recovery, and minimal cost to confidently refresh the eye area.
Can You Get Fox Eye With Cog Thread Lift?
The cog thread technique uses dissolvable sutures to naturally lift your upper eyelid and elongate your outer eyebrows (lifting the brow tail) to create a fox eye effect. This non-invasive fox eye treatment is gaining popularity among celebrities worldwide.
No anesthesia is required for a fox eye lift; just a few numbing injections would do the job. Also, there’s no rest required like in surgery, and within 24-48 hours, you’ll be back to work. But don’t forget to follow the after-care advice given by your doctor.
The cost of cog fox eye thread lift varies between $1,500 to $4,500.
Can You Botox After Cog Thread Lift?
While cog thread lift is an excellent option for lifting and contouring your skin, it does not work for other aesthetic desires which might need surgical procedures.
After threading, your skin becomes tighter, lifted, and refreshed; however, you can opt for other Botox if you want to maintain the results for long.
It is safe to combine this treatment with other non-invasive rejuvenation procedures, but first, you have to wait for cog thread treatment to take effect. Once threads dissolve, you can choose to have other anti-aging treatments as per your doctor’s advice.
*Many people often choose to combine thread lift with dermal fillers.
Are There Any Side Effects of Cog Threads?
Reportedly, PDO cog thread lifts have less risk of complications than painful facelift surgeries, primarily when performed by a trained doctor; there’s less risk of bleeding, severe bruising, or scarring. These minor side effects occur in only 15 to 20 percent of treatments but are corrected within 24-48 hours post-procedure.
Potential complications of a cog thread lift include:
- visible sutures – usually problem occurs to those who have thin skin
- snapping of threads
- hair loss
- accumulation of blood (hematoma)
- mild dimpling (orange/yellowish peel-like skin texture)
- salivary gland injury
Furthermore, thread breakage is also a potential side effect, but this occurs due to exfoliating skin, excess facial movement, or exposure to moisture.
Treatments of the complications mentioned above are highly valued. Doctors may remove sutures when barbed threads get displaced.
Did you know? A few trained specialists prefer inserting extra cog threads to ensure the strength and longevity of the procedure.
Which is Better Cog Threads or Fillers?
Cog thread lifts give a lifting and tightening effect in a one-time procedure. Whereas fillers do not give this dual effect and are used for filling the sunken – volumize specific areas.
Cog thread provides a moderate lift, whereas fillers provide mild lifting capacity and also require touch-ups.
Hence, we can happily say that cog thread is better than fillers as it is a non-surgical treatment that gives exceptional benefits to the patients.
Can You Be Allergic To Cog Threads?
As said above, doctors have used Polydioxanone (PDO) threads for over three decades in heart surgery and other surgical procedures. So, cog threads are a newly invented form of PDO threads that are equally safe and not allergic reactions can occur.
