The Cog Lift: Your Questions Answered

The Cog Lift: Your Questions Answered 2000 2000 Helen Taylor Aesthetics

Ever wondered what a cog lift is? If you have a question or two, we have the answers, having sat down with our founder Helen to get the inside scoop on this revolutionary treatment – one of many to be added to our brimming menu here at Helen Taylor Aesthetics in Rugby.

A cog lift is an effective treatment designed to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue. Re-defining facial contours and offering results which can last up to three years, the threads used in a cog lift treatment will form an integral support structure for the tissue of the face. This is due to collagen synthesis – and the lifting effect reaches its peak six months later, when collagen forms around the threads.

Read on to learn more about this popular treatment.

What happens during a cog lift?

During a PDO cog lift treatment, small threads are inserted into the skin in the optimum places to achieve a desired lift.

Who can the cog lift treatment help?

People who suffer with dropped contours in their face, neck and potentially other areas of their body can benefit from the cog lift.

Is the cog lift better for mature skin?

Depending on skin type, anything from the medications you’re taking to your skin type can affect the outcome of this lift treatment. For example, thicker skin types may require a different type of thread to achieve desired results. We will, of course, discuss this in your initial consultation at Helen Taylor Aesthetics.

Can the cog lift benefit someone in their 20s?

No, this treatment is for over 30s. Get in touch if you’d like to discuss any treatments which are better suited to your individual age bracket.

What about the recovery time for the cog lift? Can patients be back to work straight after?

Potentially, they can. However, there may be some discomfort for 24 to 48 hours after, as well as some bruising.

What’s the price of the cog lift at Helen Taylor Aesthetics?

For this treatment, price is on application. The cost varies, due to the number of threads used. However, please note that this price includes a follow-up appointment three months later, where additional threads can be inserted to achieve the optimum lift or result.

What’s the waiting time for a cog lift at you’re the clinic?

Currently it is two to three weeks, but it’s always best to book as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
