Some of todays leading anti-ageing products where previously used in the medical field. Threads were first used to correct facial paralysis. With time studies revealed a mechanical induced skin tension and a stimulation of fibroblasts to natural neocollagenesis.
Polydioxanone has been used for more than 20 years in orthopedics, surgery, plastic surgery and ophthalmology. PDO threads have a high safety profile, complete absorption and minimal tissue reaction. The PDO thread generates tensing fibrosis in the surrounding tissue. When inserted correctly in the subcutaneous tissue, the risk for scarring is absent. V Soft Lift® is not comparable with other types of thread lifting as these PDO threads are thinner, shorter, and inserted with an ultra thin wall high quality needle.
Polydioxanone is a polymer of multiple repeating ether-ester units. It is obtained by ring-opening polymerization of the monomer p-dioxanone. These monomers break down into water and carbon dioxide and are cutaneously absorbed.
V Lift was originally developed in Korea to change the classical oriental round face into a western V shaped face, perceived to be more attractive. Our treatment protocol has been developed in Sweden by leading surgeons for V Soft Lift®.
