A New and Better Approach to Facelifting: FAQs About the Ultra V Lift

You want to get a “face lift” to deal with sagging cheeks and jowls, an undefined jaw line, wrinkles, and other classic signs of an aging face. However, you might not be comfortable about having to undergo surgery and the possible complications that comes with it. You may simply want that youthful appearance without the lengthy recovery time.

Fortunately, there’s a way for you to get the perks of a lift without the scalpels or the downtime. Read all about the Ultra V Lift, a new and better approach to “face lifting”. 

Frequently Asked Questions About the Ultra V Lift

What is the Ultra V Lift?

The Ultra V Lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses threads made of polydioxanone (PDO), a biodegradable polymer that your body can safely absorb. These special threads are introduced into the deeper layers of the skin, anchoring it upwards and producing 3 effects:

  • Instant skin lift

  • Cellular renewal and improved skin texture

  • Skin tightening

What’s even better is that the Ultra V Lift can target almost any part of the face! Try it out to reduce the appearance of:

  • Sagging cheeks, jowls, and undefined jawlines

  • Laugh lines

  • Laxity under the chin (double chin)

  • Naso-jugal folds and tear trough

Who are the Best Candidates for Ultra V Lift?

Ultra V Lift is ideal for individuals in their 20s to 50s who would like to correct skin creases, minimal sagging, and other early signs of aging.

Is the Ultra V Lift Painful?

Not at all! Your dermatologist will first apply local anesthesia for maximum comfort. 

Patients who’ve tried out the Ultra V Lift describe the sensation as surprisingly tolerable and less painful than pimple-pricking or cautery of warts. In addition, our dermatologists can help ensure a most comfortable experience for our patients.

How Does the Ultra V Lift Work?

The Ultra V Lift procedure triggers collagen regeneration deep in the skin, thanks to the absorbable PDO that make up the threads. As a result, patients will notice their skin becoming more youthful in the weeks following the procedure. The PDO threads also instantly lift the skin for a slimmer jawline without scarring and the long recovery time.

Why Should I Go for Ultra V Lift?

The biggest advantage that the Ultra V Lift has over a traditional facelift is its greatly reduced recovery time. Face lift patients may need to take one to two weeks off in order to heal. Also, since face lifts use general anesthesia, patients will also have to undergo a full operation in a hospital setting.  

On the other hand, the Ultra V Lift only requires topical and sometimes local anesthesia. Patients can move about independently immediately after their procedure, though they may still choose to take the rest of the day off. This makes Ultra V Lifts perfect for those who have children at home or those who have busy careers.

How Much Does the Ultra V Lift Cost?

The Ultra V Lift is not as expensive as surgery and relatively affordable compared to other lifting modalities that are very popular these days. This procedure requires original and high quality materials sourced from our reputable provider to achieve the best results in every patient.

Is the Ultra V Lift Safe?

The answer is yes! For one, our highly trained board- certified Dermatologists will give you a proper assessment and perform the procedure themselves. The threads involved are inserted via needles and not surgery. These threads will also safely be absorbed into the skin within 6-8 months. 

The procedure also has minimal downtime. It is natural to experience mild swelling and soreness for a few days after the procedure, as well as a light sensation of tightness for up to 2 weeks. Mild bruising of the skin may also occur, but it disappears within days.

The Ultra V Lift requires in-depth anatomical knowledge! This is one procedure you’ll only want to undergo at the hands of a board-certified Dermatologist if you want to minimize any risks.

What Can I Expect from an Ultra V Lift?

You’ll immediately notice that your skin is tighter and more youthful right after your Ultra V Lift! There may be a little bit of swelling in the following days but when the this goes away you’ll look very natural and lifted. After another month or two, you’ll have firm and rejuvenated skin with smoother texture. However, the results can vary between patients. Your Dermatologist may also choose to focus on lifting certain problem areas that are unique per individual.

The PDO threads will dissolve 9 months after the procedure but the results will remain for several more months. You can always go for another Ultra V Lift to make your youthful appearance last even longer!
