What is PDO?
Polydioxanone (PDO), synthetic absorbable monofilament thread is commonly used in cardiovascular surgery and fine ligatures.
Ultra V Lift can be applied to anywhere on the body, including the face, eye corners, cheeks, double chin, neck, forehead, laugh lines, forearm and abdomen. It can use to heighten the nose bridge, giving it a natural elevated look. (treatment area photos)
How is the procedure done?
The entire procedure takes about 30min – 1 hour (depending on treatment area), where an anaesthetic cream is applied on the treatment area prior to the procedure.
The doctor then deftly inserts the threads under the skin. There is hardly any pain, bleeding or swelling and the patient can go back to work after the procedure. As the threads are dissolvable, they are slowly absorbed into the body safely. (Videos on how it's done)
Who would be suitable candidates?
The procedure is suitable for most people. Most patients are aged from 25 onwards, when the effects of ageing become apparent. Ageing 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 reverses the effects of ageing.
How long do the effects last?
The results usually last for 1 to 2 years. Repeated treatments will achieve better results.
What are the contraindications?

- during pregnancy
- on anticoagulant medication
