A non-surgical approach to sagging skin that avoids scarring
The Mint Thread Lift provides an exciting new way to treat sagging skin on the face and neck. FDA-approved Mint Threads are specially designed to be fixated (attached) to sagging areas of the skin and then pulled to firm and tighten loose skin. These threads address the problems caused by diminishing collagen and elastin. The aging body fails to produce these proteins fast enough, which leads to sagging skin and the emergence of wrinkles. Mint threads continue to stimulate collagen production after they are broken down and absorbed. After treatment, you will see an immediate improvement in your appearance.
Common areas for lifting are the lower face, eyebrows, the temple area, the cheeks, and various areas of the neck. This is something that our medical expert would discuss with you. Each thread lift is individualized to the needs of the client.
The threads break down slowly into water and carbon dioxide over a period of 6–8 months, and a special coating on the threads continues to stimulate the production of collagen after the threads are absorbed. Your immediate improvement can last for up to one year.
Our medical professionals want you to be comfortable during treatment. They will inject a lidocaine numbing solution into the thread insertion sites before inserting the threads. You will also be comfortable following treatment, but you may experience a feeling of tightness where the threads were placed for a few days.
The threads are FDA-approved, which means they are considered safe and effective. The product is made out of a material composed of sugar and polydioxanone (PDO). These threads have been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for more than 30 years. There are tiny barbs placed on the threads which anchor them into position in the sagging skin. Threads are then maneuvered to provide the desired lift.
Dermal fillers and neurotoxins like Botox pair nicely with thread lifts. Fillers add volume, neurotoxins relax deep lines and wrinkles, and Mint Threads correct drooping skin. Your medical professional will help you decide on the best use of injectables in your care.
