I have been eating, breathing, sleeping Korean Ultra V threadlift techniques in this refresher course on Korean Ultra V Threadlift for the last 48 hours, right here in Sydney Australia! 🙂
Requiring surgery to make your nose tip smaller is now a thing of the past. Did you know that you can use just a few threads to make reduce the width of your nose and sharpen the tip? It’s best combined with filler augmentation for a beautiful small and sharp nose tip. The results are immediately visible and very amazing – almost as good as a tip plasty!
Nose threadlift can also augment the nose bridge beautifully, instead of implant or filler. It gives great definition and straightness to the nose. I love the way nose threadlift enhances the appearance of the nose bridge and may even prefer it to filler augmentation.

Korean Ultra V Threadlift is superb to tighten loose skin over the neck, jowls, nasolabial folds and Marionette lines, so as to achieve skin lifting and less drooping. It makes use of threads with tiny barbs that grab the skin and pull it back – like how we occasionally do to our own faces in the mirror and then wish that it would stay that way. Korean Ultra V threadlifting has been in the market for only a while but the constant upgrading of new techniques is fast making it the future of face lifting – it may very well replace surgical facelift in time to come! 🙂
What is the Korea Ultra V Threadlift?
There are two types of barbed threads which are available. These are:
- Bi-directional threads, with no anchoring points, inserted within a hollow needle and placed in such a manner that the thread cannot move either way because of the two-way direction of barbs fixing it nicely. Examples are seen in many of the cog threads used in Korean Ultra V Threadlift.
- Uni-directional barbed threads, which are anchored at a higher level fixation point. Examples are the Silhouette Soft® Threadlift.
We offer both options for thread lifting at Tiffiny Yang Aesthetics & Surgery.
There are many types of threads used in Korea Ultra V Threadlift, mainly cog threads and mono threads, but they are all made using polydioxanone (PDO), which is a dissolvable suture material commonly used in other surgical treatments. This material is very safe for use as threadlift as it has a long history of being widely used safely in many surgical and medical indications and, as a material, has hardly ever caused any side effect.
Cog threads are modified for use in threadlift by creating tiny barbs along the threads that act as cogs to grasp, lift and suspend a relaxed facial area. The barbs open like an umbrella to form a support structure that lifts the sagging tissue. These barbs under the skin also tend to gather tissues to fill out and lift the cheeks and sagging skin. Barbs on the thread grab hold of skin tissue. This creates tension in the thread, and the tension lifts the skin tissue. Collagen formation also occurs around the threads and their cogs or barbs, producing an increasing effect over time. This part of the treatment is used for lifting of saggy or droopy skin.
Mono threads are short, simple, smooth threads without barbs or cones that are placed multiply into the face in a mesh-like fashion for an overall skin tightening result. They work very well to reduce wrinkled skin by creating an overall skin tightening that comes after collagen starts forming around the threads 1 month after the treatment procedure. They complement the process of skin lifting that cog threads can give. Used on their own, they tighten the skin without significant lifting, therefore they are often used in combination with cog threads for a overall improvement in face rejuvenation and youth restoration.
The Korea Ultra V Threadlift can last for approximately 1 to 1.5 years, depending on your age, lifestyle, and facial movement patterns. As more collagen is produced over time, the results of the Korea Ultra V Threadlift will also gradually become better and peak at approximately 6-9 months after the procedure. An advantage of the dissolving threads is that additional threads can be inserted at a later date if further lift procedures are required.
Traditional face-lift surgeries are more invasive, and cause more trauma to the skin which requires more recovery time. As the dissolvable thread-lift procedure is less invasive, patients generally see less swelling, and are normally able to return to work and social settings almost immediately. In addition, as the dissolvable thread-lift procedure does not involve any cutting of the skin, only topical or local anesthetic is required. As the procedure is non-invasive, side effects are rare and you may experience some light bruising which will go away in a few days. Depending on the area that lifting is desired, the thread-lift procedure usually takes 30 minutes to an hour.
Looking forward to further improving my patients’ satisfaction for skin tightening and face lifting right after this boot camp. 😉
And of course, I must visit the iconic Sydney Opera House, world renowned touristy spot.
