VXiL lift is a non-invasive lifting procedure using a surgical thread made of Polydioxanone (PDO). PDO is a substance which is harmless to the body.
It induces collagen regeneration, increasing skin elasticity and improving skin texture, and dissolves into the body over six months to 1.5 years. The PDO thread is inserted through a needle without an incision, and sagging skin and wrinkles are instantly improved. This procedure is simple and effective for wrinkles, double chins, and deep smile lines, for patients of any age, from their early 20s to 60s.
Why CDU's VXiL Lift?
Stronger and longer-lasting results
Unlike other threads, the PDO thread has 12 cogs all-around at 180 degrees, which allows a stronger pulling capacity.
The maintenance period of general surgical threads is about six to nine months, but VXiL maintains results for a minimum of one year.
Only available at CDU
VXiL is only available at CDU Plastic Surgery Korea.
As the main developer of VXiL, CDU surgeons participated in the research into VXiL. With the help of CDU surgeon’s 20-year experience, VXiL has been developed to address the flaws of current threads.
No incisions or stitch removal
Without incisions or fixation, there is no discomfort during the recovery process, resulting in an extremely short recovery process.
PDO is a medical-grade thread made of protein. This stimulates the production of new collagen, increasing skin elasticity, and smoothing out the skin surface. It is also extremely safe, as it is dissolved into the body over time.
A long term recovery process is not required, so the result can be seen right after surgery.
Powerful & Longer-Lasting Results
With age, the skin becomes thicker and the fat becomes saggy and heavy. These conditions can shorten the duration of the lifting result.
Depending on the patient’s condition, additional procedures can be combined with a VXiL lift, giving much more powerful and prolonged results.
Venus facial liposuction laser
With no incision, Venus laser uses two different types of laser. Each laser effectively removes excess fat, minimizing damage to surrounding tissue and enhancing skin elasticity.
Ulthera is an FDA-approved, safe, and non-invasive skin tightening and lifting laser.
As Ulthera is the strongest lifting laser among existing HIFU machines, the surgeon can create a lifting effect, improve skin tone and wrinkles, enhance skin elasticity, and slim down the face contour with a single round of treatment.
By removing excess fat, the skin becomes lighter and easy to lift.
By tightening the skin layer, the volume of the skin decreases, making the face contour slimmer.
Physically lifts sagging skin.
A design is made.
Local anesthesia is injected.
The thread is inserted and lifted.
The patient can return to their daily routine.
Q&A About VXiL Lift
Swelling and bruising differ according to surgery duration and method, and what type of thread is used. When a delicate area is lifted by a thick surgical thread with stubborn cogs, the swelling and bruising can be worse. Because CDU surgeons are senior surgeons with extensive experience, and because they provide a personalized surgical method and perform delicate surgery, the result is not only much more effective, but the possibility of swelling and bruising is also relatively low.
The results can be seen instantly, right after the procedure. The results last a minimum of six months to a maximum of two years. The maintenance period can vary depending on one’s skin characteristics. To increase the maintenance period, please refrain from making exaggerated facial expressions and from moving the muscles in the surgical area for at least two weeks.
After undergoing a thread lift with facial liposuction, non-invasive lifting laser care such as Ulthera or Doublo (HIFU lifting lasers) is recommended every six months for a longer-lasting result. If needed, simply inserting 2 to 3 threads every year can be beneficial for maintenance. After some time, if a patient feels that the skin is sagging again, another VXiL lift procedure can be considered.
