Irregardless of age and gender, many desire a lifted V-shaped face and neck today. At Zoe Medical, we are able to customise a treatment plan to address all 4 Dimensions of your face and neck to achieve that long-lasting V-shaped look. The 4D V-Lift addresses 4 dimensions of the face and neck.
Face & Neck
What is the 4D V-Lift?
4-Dimensions of V-Lift
Planar Mid-Face/Flat Cheeks
Most Asians are born with a planar mid-face, or flat cheeks. These give a wide appearance to the facial outline. The 4D V-lift treats this by melting fat along the side of the cheeks and then increasing forward projection by grafting fat into the cheek mound. This results in a narrower, more projected mid-face.
Asians usually have a broad lower face, or a square jawline. This is the result of excess fat, strong muscle and thick skin. The 4D V Lift tightens the skin with Ulthera, melts the fat with internal laser and reduce the muscle thickness with deep radio-frequency. The overall result is one that continues harmoniously from the projected mid-face to a slimmer, tighter lower jawline.
Sagging Jowls or “Bulldog Jawline” is a condition seen in Asians usually above the age of 50 years old. The sagging jowls are lifted by a combination of internal laser and external High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to give a smoother tighter lower face that complements the projected cheeks and slimmer jawline.
Double Chin and Loose Neck
Once the face has been reshaped, the neck may also require some enhancement. Many Asians have a thick upper neck area, known as a “Double Chin”, as well as loose skin in the mid-neck zones. By treating these problems, the 4D V-lift is able to give a defined neck angle as well as to smoothen out any neck wrinkles. The neck lift will complement the new V-shaped face perfectly!

ACNE SCAR REMOVAL & LIGHTENING
Individuals with acne history may have skin discoloration or residual scars – ice pick scars, rolling scars or box car scars. These scars can be treated by our professionals with different types of lasers. Sequential scar lightening treatments, can improve skin discoloration and also reduce the depressions responsible for the uneven skin tone and texture
In cases where there is severe depression, fractional laser or other lasers administered on the surface of the skin has its limitations. As a result, they produce less significant improvements. Treating scars with severe depressions will require laser subscision to rejuvenate the scars inside out. This acne scar treatment method produces much better results and can bring about dramatic improvements to the skin texture, appearance and elasticity.
Laser subcision is done by running a laser probe between both the upper and lower layers of the skin. This helps to induce collagen regeneration and acne scar removal or remodeling by encouraging the body’s natural healing mechanisms to replace damaged scar tissue with healthy, non-pigmented tissue. The natural healing process will remove unsightly scarring, pigmented markings and smoothen pock marks. In most cases, it takes one acne scar treatment to improve depressions and one should expect around 7 days’ downtime.

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a naturally occurring substance in your skin that helps provide fullness and elasticity. Hyaluronic Acid diminishes as we age, causing skin to lose volume while increasing the chances of wrinkles and folds to appear. Dermal fillers can help to counter this by filling in lines and creases in the face. Resulting in a volumising and plumping effect.
They can be used for:
Dermal fillers are administered through a few small injections into the dermis, after which it is gently massaged to ensure it spreads across the treated area to fill creases and wrinkles. Typically, these fillers require minimal downtime. Results are immediate, and can last for at least 9 to 12 months.
At Zoe Medical, the fillers we use are Restylane, Radiesse as well as free fat grafting. If you are considering ‘longer lasting’ fillers, free fat grafting would be a better option for you.
They are used to:
Threadlift is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive facelift technique using sutures which are commonly referred to as threads. The threads are inserted beneath the skin to reposition sagging skin or plump up wrinkles and lines, resulting in a semi-permanent lifting effect. Apart from skin regeneration benefits from collagen synthesis and skin tightening. Overall improvement to the skin tone and quality can be achieved.
Types of Dissolvable Threadlift
Dissolvable thread lift uses FDA-approved PDO threads that will be broken down naturally by the body’s enzymes. Commonly used to regenerate collagen and elastin fibres vital for anti-ageing, it helps to improve wrinkles as well as firms and lifts the skin for a slimmer V-line effect. PDO thread lift results can last for approximately 1 year or more depending on the individual’s lifestyle and habits.
Moderate ThreadLift – MEGA V-Lift
The dissolvable threads for a moderate lift comes with mini barbs for better grip allowing skin tissues to adhere better. It produces better lifting results and is a good option for those who want more dramatic face lift results without any down-time. Both thread and barbs will eventually be broken down by the body’s enzymes enabling new collagen and elastin fibres to fill in hence the skin will feel tighter and more lifted. Moderate thread lift can be used to achieve similar effects to brow lift, face lift and neck lift surgeries.
Depending on one’s expectations, the surgeon will recommend the number of threads to achieving the desired results. A moderate lift can last for approximately 3 years or more depending on the individual’s lifestyle and habits.
For individuals with minor to moderate skin laxity issues.
