V Soft Lift

V Soft Lift is an innovative procedure to rejuvenate and regenerate the skin. It is a minimally invasive procedure using absorbable PDO threads, a medical grade thread used for suturing for over 30 years. The thread is of potent synthetic fibre and dissolves after a certain time in the tissue.

A V Soft Lift treatment will improve your facial structure, giving you similar benefits to a facelift but without the need for surgery and general anesthetic.

FACE SOLUTIONS

NON INVASIVE, NON SURGICAL

V Soft Lift is a new natural face lift and skin tightening treatment without downtime. The treatment protocol has been developed by the Swedish InjectAcademy*. V Soft Lift was originally developed in Korea to change the classical oriental round face onto a western V shaped face, perceived to be more attractive.

Over the last years InjectAcademy has worked out new techniques to suit the Caucasian face and augmented the technique to address the changes experienced by the ageing face and body.

The possibilities for a natural lift has been expanded to cover the whole face; forehead, chin, cheek, lip, neck, jaw line, eyebrows, double chin, crow’s feet and frown area.

The procedure takes about 30-60 minutes and is performed by placing absorbable fine threads with a needle into the subcutaneous tissue. The patients experience the procedure similar to a Botox or filler treatment.

The threads are thin as hair and consists of polydioxanone ( PDO) – utilised in surgery over the past 30 years. Duration of results can vary between one to two years.

InjectAcademy is a leader in new therapies for the aesthetic market.

FIND THE RIGHT TREATMENT FOR YOU

How does the face age?

A young face tends to be shaped like a ‘V”. With age the skin loses its structure, elasticity, volume, muscles and even bone mass. This means the classical youthful V-shape is reversed and becomes more like an inverted ‘V’. The treatment method V Soft Lift aims to restore the youthful facial V shape. This is achieved with small, thin threads positioned in the subdermal tissue. V Soft Lift offers a triple response enabling stimulation of collagen production, a durable lifting effect and tighter, firmer skin. For todays patients looking for the natural look.
