South Korea reigns in the beauty world, and is certainly leading the pack when it comes to aesthetic procedures. Equipped with the best technology and high standards of professionalism, it is no surprise that other Asian markets look to them for the latest and greatest in the aesthetic department.


If you’re considering Korean skin tightening methods, the V-Threadlift and HIFU Ultralift will be the ones to look out for. These two skin tightening procedures are wildly popular in Korea because of the quick results they’re able to deliver, without significant downtime.

Are Korean skin tightening methods available in Singapore? Yes!

Thankfully we don’t have to take the next flight to Korea to enjoy the best Korean aesthetic procedures. You can find these two Korean skin tightening procedures in Singapore at Gangnam Laser Clinic.


Gangnam Laser Clinic follows the Korean approach to medical aesthetics, and is staffed with doctors who train with Korean dermatologists and plastic surgeons. Using a combination of safe and targeted Korean techniques, together with the latest Korean aesthetic technologies and treatments, Gangnam Laser Clinic offers a great alternative to travelling to Korea for regular procedures to keep your skin looking fresh and youthful.

What is V-Threadlift?

Saggy and wrinkled skin are some of the most challenging signs of ageing that a woman faces. While topical creams may help to prevent them from worsening or provide some repair, they typically can’t give us the instant and dramatic result that we long to have.


If you want to see effective results without resorting to surgery, Gangnam V-ThreadLift will be a great solution. This advanced technology uses fine dissolvable PDO threads that are inserted into targeted areas under the skin to visibly lift and rejuvenate skin. It works especially well to improve saggy and wrinkled skin, but can also be used to augment facial features like the nose bridge.

Its popularity can be attributed to its unique technology: the three-dimensionally barbed threads that are designed to help skin achieve both lifting and rejuvenation benefits by stimulating the production of collagen around the threads – something that a lot of procedures can’t do at the same time.

In most cases, patients are able to see noticeable results immediately, with the results lasting for 12 to 18 months. Most importantly, Koreans swear by this procedure because results are natural-looking, and it yields little downtime and has minimal risk of scarring.

In fact, some patients who are used to doing dermal filler injections are switching to threadlifting because the former has been associated with risk of severe vascular complications including skin necrosis and blindness. The Korean Threadlift eliminates this risk altogether.

A non-invasive skin tightening option: HIFU Ultralift

HIFU (High Intensity Focused Ultrasound) is an advanced non-invasive skin tightening method popularised in South Korea. Using highly magnified ultrasound waves to generate heat in precisely targeted layers of the skin, Gangnam HIFU Ultralift is able to tighten collagen fibres and encourage skin to generate new collagen, which progressively lifts and tighten the skin. These benefits in turn help reduce the appearance of existing fine lines and give skin a tightened and lifted look. Visible pores and skin tone also improves significantly.

Acting on deeper layers of the skin, HIFU is able to provide a tightening and rejuvenating effect that lasts for about 12 months without any injections or incisions. The procedure is fast, has little or no downtime, and definitely reduces any risk of complications and scarring compared to surgical treatments.

V-Threadlift or HIFU Ultralift?

V-Threadlift is great for mature skin with very visible sagging and wrinkles, and for those who are looking for a more lasting solution without going under the knife. If you have mild to moderate sagging skin, HIFU Ultralift is a slightly more conservative treatment. It is also commonly used as a preventive treatment, tightening the jawline to create a V-shape facial contour, eliminating neck lines, and even body contouring.
