duolift neck and face lift treatment

A combination that targets all layers of the skin to unearth your youth.


Facial skin laxity is an inevitable sign of aging. Layers of the skin that provide strength and support start to lose their linear structure over time. Paired with a gradual decline in tissue-building and regeneration components such as collagen and elastin, we are faced with forehead wrinkles, sagging cheeks and jowls, excess skin under the chin, and visible neck lines.

What is DuoLift™?

To address skin laxity with optimal effects, Illumia Medical’s medical director Dr Ram Nath pioneered the DuoLift™ facelifting technique to effectively treat the signs of aging on the face and neck by using a combination treatment that is designed to target several layers of the skin at the same time. This combination treatment approach has been fine-tuned by Dr Ram over 20 years and has been performed with satisfactory results for many patients over the years.

Combining high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) energy and minimally invasive thread lifting techniques, DuoLift™ is effective for anti-aging in Singapore with visible, lasting results without surgery.

Targeted conditions

● Sagging jowls and chin, turkey neck
● Sagging skin on the cheeks, upper eyelids, nasolabial folds
● Expression lines and marionette lines
● Crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles

Benefits of DuoLift™ Face and Neck

DuoLift™ combines the efficacy of Ultraformer III and the precise definition achievable with PDO threadlifts to erase the signs of advanced aging and do away with wrinkles, fine lines, and sagginess for longer-lasting, youthful skin - with no cuts or incisions.

Collagen helps support our skin’s firm structure, and it is responsible for giving the skin its youthful appearance. Along with providing the skin its supple, bouncy texture, collagen also ensures that our skin remains stronger, tighter, and hydrated over time.

HIFU works on the deepest layers of the skin to simultaneously correct the skin structure on the face and neck and stimulates new collagen production, enhancing skin firmness and elasticity. HIFU rids the subcutaneous layer of excess fat cells and reduces skin laxity, resulting in a visibly younger look.

Super-absorbent surgical polydioxanone (PDO) threads are then skillfully introduced into the skin using specially designed fine-touch needles to gently create a natural scaffold that lifts and tightens the skin. The superficial layers of the skin where creases, fine lines and folds are most prominent are pulled into place, combined with the collagen-stimulating effects of HIFU, restoring the allure of youthfulness to the face and neck.

DuoLift™ VS Thermage for Facelifting

Thermage is a non-surgical facelifting technique that uses radiofrequency waves on the surface layers of the skin to trigger its natural collagen production. Unlike Thermage, DuoLift™ works on all layers of the skin to boost its collagen production, enhancing the tissue regeneration and healing process.

A thread lift will help to lift the facial structure, aligning the tissue structures and correcting loose skin in problem areas including the forehead, cheeks, jawline, and chin. Thermage will require repeat sessions to maintain the results, and this can take anywhere from 2 to 3 years. Under the hands of an experienced aesthetic doctor who has performed many facelifts, a thread lift can have natural-looking results with no visible marks or scars.

The difference between DuoLift™ and Thermage also lies in the respective technology’s mode of action. DuoLift™ uses HIFU to tighten even the deepest folds and creases, as well as heavy sagging skin and encourage collagen production. Combine this with the lifting effects of a PDO thread lift, and patients can expect a drastic yet natural enhancement to the face immediately after the procedure, restoring skin elasticity, whereas noticeable improvements with Thermage alone may take 3 to 6 months, or longer.

Thermage can be an effective solution for those who do not mind subtle, gradual improvements over time. DuoLift™ allows individuals to achieve satisfactory results within a shorter timeframe without surgery, and with minimal downtime and side effects.

How is DuoLift™ performed?

Patients will be guided through an individualized face assessment and design process where the aesthetic doctor will create a customized treatment plan based on their specific needs and make recommendations on the target areas prior to the procedure. No anesthesia is necessary, and only topical numbing cream is needed for a comfortable treatment. Target areas are marked out before an ultrasound gel is applied for maximum comfort during the HIFU treatment. Ultrasound energy is then emitted and target the problem areas under the skin without harming the surrounding skin, at an intensity that is effective yet comfortable. Treatment time takes no more than 30 minutes, depending on the treated areas.

HIFU treatment is followed immediately after the thread lift procedure. Local anesthesia may be required to maximize patient’s comfort during the procedure, where PDO threads are precisely inserted into areas of the face or neck, according to your facial anatomy.

What can you expect after the procedure?

With DuoLift™, patients can begin seeing noticeable improvements as early as hours after the procedure, with full results becoming visible in 2 to 3 months as the body’s natural collagen stimulation and production subtly improves over time.

● Visible lifting around the jawline, cheeks, and chin
● Smoother, tighter, and evenly toned skin texture
● Brighter and softer skin complexion
