If you’d like to look more youthful but you’re not ready for surgery, the MINT lift delivers impressive results with minimal downtime.
Thread lifting has gone in and out of fashion over the past decades but now, with the introduction of the MINT lift, this effective anti-ageing procedure is here to stay.
Thread lifting as a concept has always made sense aesthetically. By supporting the skin from within, threads can help lift and tighten soft tissue as well as stimulate collagen production in the dermis. If you have some jowling, volume loss or just feel your face would benefit from a subtle lift, but you are not ready to undergo surgery, the MINT lift may be your best option.
MINT threads are made from sterile absorbable suture material and feature bi-directional and helically positioned mini barbs to effectively anchor soft tissue before lifting it to the desired position. They typically generate the best results in the cheeks, jowls, jawline, brows and neck – those areas with sufficient soft tissue.
Some lifting can be seen immediately post-procedure and, because the MINT lift stimulates the production of collagen and prompts tissue contraction, your results will continue to develop for a number of months. The threads themselves are broken down and absorbed by the body while the lifting effect remains, typically lasting between 6 months and 3 years, depending on your own tissue.
This procedure is considered a minimally invasive treatment because it does not cause any scarring or trauma to the skin. Little downtime is required so you can return to your normal activities shortly after treatment.
The ideal MINT lift® candidate is someone who needs more volume than fillers can provide but is not yet ready for surgery. We recommend using the MINT lift in combination with fillers for optimal lifting and augmentation.
