What is VOV Lift?

VOV Lift is a powerful face lift procedure using threads to improve visible aging signs such as wrinkles, saggy skin, and fine lines. The procedure utilizes polycaprolactone (PCL) for the thread to make it more flexible and durable; thus, this offers a more natural pull along the face line. The pulling effect will be continued by the threads for about 2 years until the thread is fully absorbed into the body.

PCL has a collagen-producing effect, so it creates new collagen in the skin during the process of unraveling the threads. When a foreign substance called a thread is inserted under the skin, the tissue repair reaction will increase collagen and elastin, and you can expect to improve the firmness and elasticity of your face.

How It Works

During the procedure, local anesthesia will be administered before inserting the threads. The PCL threads will be preloaded into a sharp or blunt tip needle (also known as cannula) and the cannula will then be inserted into different layers of the skin. After that, the threads will be released into the skin from the cannula, and the excess threads will be cut off.

The thread left underneath the skin will stimulate collagen production as a natural way for the body to heal. Gradually, the thread will be dissolved by the body and collagen will continue to be produced in the process. The number of threads you need will depend on the condition of your skin. During consultation, it’s important to discuss your expectations so that the doctor can predetermine the number of threads needed to achieve your appearance goals.

PCL threads can last between 16 to 24 months, approximately 2 to 3 times longer-lasting than PDO threads.

VOV Lift Procedure

1. The examination will be done by doctor and markings will be done for insertion of threads
2. Local anesthesia will be administered
3. PCL threads will be preloaded in a long cannula. The cannula will be pushed through the tissue underneath the skin
4. Once the thread has reached its predetermined end point, the thread will be released from the cannula
5. The process will be repeated until the desired lifting effect is achieved
6. The excess thread will be cut off. Gradually, the thread will dissolve inside the body and collagen will be stimulated in the process

VOV Lift and "Press Molding Technology"

A special technology called "press molding technology", in which thorns and threads are manufactured together, has achieved high strength and a strong lift-up effect. Pour the PCL into the mold and apply pressure to form it without damaging it.

In the case of the "notch type" thread lift, there are thin and thick parts, and the strength is uneven. Because of this, the base of the cog is strong and can lift the slack more powerfully. In addition to that, the tips of the thorns are said to be rounded to reduce pain during insertion, so it is possible to reduce pain during insertion while pulling up firmly.
