What is the Ultra-V® Lift? 

The Ultra-V® Lift is a procedure which rejuvenates, regenerates and improves the structure of the face, in a similar way to a surgical facelift, but without the need for surgery. 
The Ultra-V® Lift uses specialised threads which are introduced into the skin with a very fine needle to lift tissue and muscle, creating a V-shaped face. 

How does the Ultra-V® Lift work? 

The threads used in the Ultra-V® Lift are made of soluble PDO (polydioxanone) which is a material that has been used in medicine for many years, mainly in surgery. However, research has shown that PDO lifts muscles and tendons, and also stimulates the neocollagenesis process, which encourages the production of new collagen in the skin. 

PDO also stimulates the synthesis of elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin, both of which are vital for keeping the skin looking plump and youthful. The PDO thread is inserted into the skin through a very fine needle, and requires no anaesthesia. A V-shaped lifted appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment, plus, the results will improve in the following days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which in turn produces collagen. 

The threads are extremely versatile and can be used all around the face and neck. The Ultra-V® Lift can treat vertical and horizontal wrinkles on the forehead, sagging brows, drooping cheeks, pronounced nasolabial (nose to mouth) and marionette (corner of mouth to chin) folds, sagging jawline and neck and folds and wrinkles on the chin. The threads are naturally absorbed by the body in six to eight months, however, the effect of the treatment can last for up to two years.

Frequently Asked Questions 

How is the treatment done?

Numbing cream is first applied before starting treatment. The skin structure of every patient is then assessed in order to create a customized treatment plan where parameters such as choice of threads, number of threads placed, position of thread placement and direction of the resulting lift are determined to ensure that the treatment is targeting the different layers of the skin where it will be most beneficial. 

Treatment is completed within 90 minutes, after which a Stem Cell Mask and Photodynamic Light Therapy is applied to immediately reduce any visible downtime.  

How many times should I undergo this treatment? 

To enjoy the full benefits of the Thread Lift treatment, we recommend a program of 1 to 3 treatments over a period of 2 years to ensure optimal results that are long-lasting and sustainable.  

Treatment results can then be easily maintained with single treatments done every 12 to 24 months, to continue to enjoy the skin benefits it provides. 

Is there any downtime? 

Patients who undergo thread lift usually resume normal activities almost immediately after the procedure.  

Downtime is limited to 1-3 days of very mild bruising or swelling in the worst case, and can be easily concealed. 

Am I suitable for this procedure?

Thread Lift treatment promotes skin repair, strengthening, lifting and rejuvenation at multiple layers of the face and neck.  

The treatment can also be designed to sharpen facial contours by reducing double chin, chubby cheeks, and jowl fat. 

Every individual receives a customized treatment plan based on individual needs.  

Thread lift can benefit patients regardless of age or severity of skin laxity, as the treatment can be designed as a preventive anti-aging procedure, to address visible signs of ageing, or sharpen and contour the face shape. 

What kind of results can I expect?

Visible improvements are the result of an actual lifting and strengthening of the skin structure and can be visible immediately after the procedure. The effects are not a temporary “lifting” of ageing like botulinum injections and filler.  

The full effects of the treatment will take about 2-3 months as it takes time to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production.  

With a healthy diet and skincare regime, patients can enjoy the long-lasting benefits of the treatment.
