What It Is

Ultra V Lift Technology is a safe and advanced process for fine thread lifting and skin rejuvenation. It is a one of a kind non-surgical procedure that uses KFDA approved ultrafine threads to insert under the skin in order to achieve an immediate as well as long lasting lifting effect. The threads used are made of polydioxanone which is a synthetic, absorbable, monofilament thread that helps to make any treatment less traumatic. They are commonly used in cardio vascular surgery. While the threads are inserted under the skin, they are also combined with the parallel vector technique so that collagen synthesis can be stimulated in the targeted areas under the skin. This way, collagen is constantly stimulated and the patient witnesses a tightening effect of the skin that feels rejuvenated on the inside and looks the same on the outside. Upon tightening the sagging skin, one can notice a more sculpted V-shaped face as well as smoother skin.

Who Should Undergo Ultra V Lift (UVL)?

Anyone can choose to undergo Ultra V Lift. Most patients who sign up for UVL are from the ages of 45 years and above as the side effects of aging begin to surface during that time. As you age, your skin is bound to sag and develop folds, creases or wrinkles as the underlying tissues begin to thin while the elastin and collagen fibers begin to break down. However with the help of Ultra V Lift, this process can be reversed immediately.

Ultra V Lifting versus Traditional Lifting

Traditional lifting is usually an invasive procedure. The surgeon decides where an incision has to be made, inserts a thread in a specific direction and pulls up the sagging skin in order to tighten it. Traditional lifting can only be carried out at a limited area and requires a long recovery period. Ultra V Lifting on the other hand can be administered on any part of the body with short recovery period. If you want the skin around your eyes, nose, cheeks, abdomen, forehead or forearms to look toned and tightened, Ultra V Lift is the ideal treatment option. With UVL, you can avoid undergoing anesthesia or worries of swellings and inflammations. This is the reason why UVL is commonly referred to as ‘lunchtime treatment’ in Japan, Korea and other countries in Asia.

How Long Do the Effects Last?

The results of Ultra V Lift last for at least 8 months and sometimes can go up to 2 years for those with adaptive skin conditions. So basically, you will need to undergo UVL treatment once a year to maintain the young and beautiful appearance. This 30 minutes procedure helps to rejuvenate your skin and make it look natural and refreshing.

How is UVL Carried Out?

The entire process lasts for a minimum of 30 minutes and not more than an hour. An anesthetic cream is applied on the area you want to be lifted before the doctor inserts the fine threads under your skin. The threads are dis-solvable and absorbed by the body eventually. This procedure results in no bleeding, pain or swelling and is one of the most common skin treatments in Asia.

Side Effects of Ultra V Lift

The treatment does not have any serious side effects. Since the absorb-able threads can be left inside and will be dissolved in due time, you can instantly go back to work after the procedure, apply cosmetics and even sunscreen. The threads not only help to lift sagging skin but also stimulate the production of collagen underneath the skin. By increasing collagen synthesis, tightening and rejuvenating skin and improving the tone and texture of skin, Ultra V Lift helps to give the face a V shaped silhouette and accentuates the features.


This revolutionary technology for lifting skin was developed by an aesthetics dermatologist surgeon based in South Korea.
