Skin lifting with N-COG Thread lift

A skin lift does make a difference, which explains its preference among those seeking a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. Being minimally invasive and without the need for a lengthy downtime often associated with surgical procedures, among its advantages - it’s not hard to fathom why.

What is N-Cog?

N-Cog (Newton Cog) involves the use of a type of thread made from PDO to lift and rejuvenate skin. Unlike most PDO skin lifts, this thread has a cone attachment, which is inserted into skin via a cannula through a tiny incision.

The short cogs provide equal pull to prevent wrinkled resulting in a uniform skin lift and tightening. Irritation and inflammation are also minimised during the N-Cog skin lift, and additionally, it also helps to improve skin complexion.

The sutures are biocompatible and biodegradable, widely used in medical suturing, which attests to its safety standard.


The procedure

The N-Cog skin lift takes about 20 to 30 minutes. Local anaesthesia will be applied to the areas to be treated to help numb and minimise discomfort. The thread is then inserted, via a needle, to the subcutaneous layer of skin where it remains implanted after the needle is taken out.

The simple procedure uses less threads compared to most skin lifting methods, and it also activates and proliferates collagen in the skin dermis layer. The sutures will be fully absorbed into the skin within six months and results may last up to 1.5 years. There is no downtime involved although it does vary with the individual and if any is involved - it usually involves minimal swelling with fast recovery.

The N-Cog skin lift is suitable for:

  • For those with loose skin elasticity and sagging cheeks.
  • For those who worry about nasolabial lines.
  • For those who want to slenderise their loose-jowled.
  • For those who wish to have a smooth oval facial line.
  • For those who could not gain tangible outcomes from the existing lifting treatment.


Non-surgical skin lift does produce desired results in a much shorter time and at a lower cost compared to a surgical option. The N-Cog skin lift, is set to raise the effectiveness and popularity of skin lift procedures.
