The Newest Thread Lifting in Korea You Need to Know

With the summer season coming up, more attention is being paid to skin care as the UV rays have become stronger. In summer, the skin ages more rapidly and suffers from troubles due to environmental factors such as fine dust, yellow dust, and ultraviolet rays. Dr. Yang Dongjun from Cheongdam U says that extra caution should be paid to external conditions that worsen skin conditions, such as ultrafine dust, yellow dust and strong ultraviolet rays. In particular, the skin can become sensitive to the sudden increase in the amount of sunlight, so we should look out for skin problems and aging that occurs during the change of seasons.

Consistent care is important to prevent these skin problems and to maintain the skin while it still has elasticity and moisture. However, it is not easy to reduce the effects aging in a short period of time, and if wrinkles and loss of skin elasticity have already occurred, there is a limit to recovery.

Recently, more and more people are visiting clinics to try skin lifting procedures. Among all the anti-aging procedures, thread lifting is a highly preferred procedure as it shows effective lifting effects. Thread lifting is a procedure that tightens sagging skin by inserting medical threads into the skin. It is a relatively simple procedure with excellent results on sagging jawline or cheek fat. Another advantage is that it can be customized to each part of the face depending on the length, shape, and usage of the thread used.

Newest Thread Lifting Technology

Dr. Yang introduced us to VXIL, which has been drawing attention as an effective method of thread lifting. VXIL is a new 180-degree two-way thread manufactured with newer technology, and it promises maximum lifting effect, quick recovery, and at least a year of retention due to its strong tensile strength.

VXIL is made of polydioxanone (PDO), which is biodegradable, meaning that it will dissolve within the body over time. VXIL is designed to compensate for various shortcomings found in existing thread lifting and to give the best clinical results. It is strong and has a wider contact surface, which improves adhesion with skin tissue.

The Results

There are satisfactory results not just for those in their 20s and 30s, but also for those in their 40s to 70s.

Getting a consultation

There are a variety of surgical methods that can be used with the VXIL thread, which the doctor will use after a consultation with the patient. Depending on the individual's skin condition, there is a possibility of side effects such as swelling, erythema, and pain after the procedure. For thread lifting procedures, Dr. Yang recommends that patients receive a consultation with skilled and professional medical staff to diagnose their skin condition before selecting the most appropriate treatment method.
