Mold Cutting Threads – The New Innovation from Korean Thread Lifting

Introduction to Cog Threads
Cogged thread is one of the three main types of threads used in thread lifting. The other two are the mono thread and the screw thread. Cog threads are essentially mono threads with barbs along the thread. They do not need to be suspended in order to sustain a lift; they are actually self-supporting.

Cog threads are classified according to the direction of their cogs/barbs:
Convergent or divergent threads, depending on whether the cogs are orientated towards each other or in opposite directions from each other from the middle. 

Uni-directional or bi-directional threads, depending on whether the cogs are orientated in only one direction, or in opposite directions.

The New Innovation of Cog Threads – Mold Cutting Threads
One of the reasons why Korean plastic surgeons are leading the aesthetic medicine industry is because they are constantly looking for more advanced solution to up the game. The barbs along conventional threads (Cutting Thread) are made by cutting into the thread. This weakens the integrity of the thread, making it more brittle. Until recent years, Korean manufacturers have developed Molding Threads via a mold-pressing process which conserves the integrity of the thread.  Before molding-pressing, Molding Threads have “bumps” along the thread. These bumps are originally large and the thickness of the thread does not change. Mold-pressing shape these bumps into barbs.

This type of threads is still being improved and the latest in the market is the Mold Cutting Thread. Mold Cutting Threads offer much more advantages in terms of strength, duration, tissue trauma and cost price. See table below for comparisons of benefits of Mold Cutting Threads over Cutting Threads and Molding Thread.
