Mint Thread Lifts
It’s a pretty cool name, like a vintage clothing store. No doubt there is a retro fashion place out there in Internet Land with this name, but there’s nothing retro about Mint Threads in the Appearance Medicine world – in fact, this treatment for non-surgical lifts is cutting edge and one of the most-recently approved technologies by the FDA.
Non-invasive, Non-surgical Alternative to Cosmetic facelifts
A thread lift is a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to a cosmetic facelift. It involves placing a special thread into the facial area – a thread containing tiny lifting barbs, which then tighten up the entire skin on the face, counteracting the sagging forces of gravity.
Mint Threads are the latest technology and materials approved for this procedure, and they are completely biodegradable, dissolving over time. The thread is made from polydioxanone (PDO), a colourless material that biodegrades through the body’s own process of hydrolysis.
How long do the results last?
Because it’s non-invasive and non-surgical, it is a safe option for those who are worried about the risks of surgery. Results from Mint Threads last for a minimum of 1 year.
How to prepare for Mint Threads?
This is a non-invasive procedure that can be done very quickly and easily with a simple application of a local anesthetic. Results are immediate and side effects are usually just slight bruising, meaning you can have this procedure done in your lunchtime and go straight back to work – looking amazing!
Also Mint MONO Threads
Mono threads are smooth threads without barbs. These thread types are great for tightening up the skin, when lifting is not really required. Multiple mono threads are placed into the face in a mesh-like fashion for a great skin-tightening effect. Mono threads are made from the same material as dissolving internal stitches. What this means is when placed into areas that need a little extra tightening, collagen forms around the threads, providing tightening in the skin. The thread dissolves, leaving newly formed collagen which firms and tightens up the skin area.
This treatment works really well on areas such as neck lines, neck sagginess, the forehead, and under eyes – but you can apply them anywhere in the skin. Between 10-20 mono threads are usually inserted for each treatment area. Mono threads tighten the skin but without significant lifting – therefore they are often used together with cog threads to give an overall improvement in face tightening and rejuvenation. Think of mono threads as the final, top coat, or as I call them, the icing on the cake, in thread work. Sometimes these can also be used as a cheaper alternative to fillers.
