Are you troubled by sagging skin, deep laugh lines and jowling?
HIFU + Korean Ultra V Face Threadlift
What is the Ultra Facelift?
Want to improve and rejuvenate your appearance but are not keen to undergo invasive surgery? Lux Medical Aesthetic Clinic’s Ultra Face Lift program may be your solution to a more lifted and youthful looking appearance.
This program is combines lower face HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound) with the Korean Ultra V Face Thread Lift to lift the lower face from the SMAS (superficial muscular aponeurotic system) layer and above.
This combination treatment can tighten, lift and stimulate the body’s own natural collagen production process.
What is the Ultra Facelift?
A layer of topical numbing cream is first applied to the skin. Oral analgesia is also provided to make the procedure more comfortable. HIFU is then applied to the skin to target the SMAS layer to produce a lifting and firming effect. This treatment also kickstarts the collagen production process within the skin.
Slight improvements in the skin may or may not be seen immediately after the HIFU treatment, but the skin condition will improve steadily over the next 3 months as the body lays down more collagen and remodels the skin*.
The next step in the treatment would be the insertion of the Korean Ultra V Face Threads. Dr Kellyn Shiau, who is trained by a renowned Korean plastic surgeon, will create a unique thread lift design that specifically targets your problem areas in order to give you a lift.
The threads are made up of PDO (polydioxanone) which is a safe and fully dissolvable material that has been used for medical surgery for years. The Korean Ultra V Face thread lift threads are special threads that have cogs lined up throughout the length of each thread.
Once inserted, the cogs act as anchoring points within the skin to maintain tension in order to tighten, lift and firm. The insertion of these threads also kickstarts the stimulation of collagen production around the entire length of the thread. These collagen fibers will help maintain the lift and prolong the lifting effect even after the threads have dissolved.
Are there any side effects?
Some minor side effects associated with the face thread lift include slight bruising, swelling and dimpling of skin.
Side effects from the HIFU treatment are uncommon, although one may experience very slight swelling post-procedure. These effects, if they occur, usually resolve quickly within a week.
The lifting effect from the Korean Ultra V Face Thread lift is instant*. Patients usually notice immediate reduction of their laugh lines and jowling*.
However, the skin may initially look more lifted than the actual end result, due to slight swelling post-procedure*. This lifting effect noticed post-procedure decreases by 10-20% within 2 weeks*.
