Elevate Your Skincare Experience and with SkinStation

Nonsurgical Beauty
Advances from
Korea (Part 1) 

If you want to have radiant, young-looking skin like
your favorite Korean movie stars, look no further.
Dr. Kwon Han Jin, a famous aesthetic dermatologist
and surgeon in Korea, and CEO of Dermaster
Clinic Networks, revealed that advanced aesthetic
technologies he has developed, such as Ultra
V-Lift, Aqua Shine, and Canula RF, are the favored
procedures of celebrities.

Let’s focus on Ultra V-Lift for now. Dr. Kwon visited
SkinStation on February 28, 2015 to train our
aesthetic doctors on recent advances in Ultra V-Lift,
a nonsurgical facelift procedure that is taking the
world by storm. Below is how Dr. Kwon explains the procedure. 

What exactly is Ultra V-Lift? 

Ultra V-Lift makes use of fine threads called
polydioxanone (PDO) that are commonly used in
surgery. The threads are inserted into targeted areas
under the skin to stimulate skin tissue. As a result,
the skin tissues create new fibroblasts and collagen.
This produces a tightening effect from inside out.
When sagging skin is tightened, it creates a more
sculpted ‘V-shaped’ face, hence the name.

How is the procedure done? 

The entire procedure takes about 1 hour. An anesthetic
cream is first applied on the area to be treated. The
doctor then deftly inserts the threads under the skin.
In the hands of an expert doctor, there will hardly
be any pain, bleeding or swelling. The threads will
eventually dissolve, and will be slowly absorbed into
the body.

Who would be suitable candidates? 
Most patients are between the ages of 30 and 50,
when the effects of aging become apparent. Aging
causes the skin tissue to thin because the collagen
and elastin fibers break down, which results in
sagging skin, deep creases, folds, and wrinkles. Ultra
V-Lift will help reverse the signs of aging.

How is Ultra V-Lift different from the traditional

Traditional facelift treatments are invasive. The
surgeon makes incisions, inserts thread in a certain
direction, and then pulls the sagging skin. The area
of application is limited and there is downtime. In
Ultra V-Lift, the application area is anywhere on the
body, including the eye corners, cheeks, neck, nose,
forehead, laugh lines, forearm and abdomen, with
hardly any downtime.

How long do the effects last? 

While the effects are visible shortly after treatment,
the best results can be seen after 2 months, and
these will last for 8 months to 1 year. Annual touch-up
session is recommended to maintain the improvements.
