Let’s start with this single word: GRAVITY. The truth about gravity is that it’s not very nice to our skin as we age. Our skin sags and we lose volume. This loose, sagging skin cannot be fixed by coverup or makeup contouring. It needs to be lifted. It needs a non-surgical thread lift by our expert injectors at Facial Aesthetics.

First things first. What is MINT PDO?

MINT stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread – a safe and effective dissolvable suture made from PDO. PDO stands for polydioxanone – a complex sugar, with a track record in safety, that has been used for over a decade as a raw material in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for wound closure. MINT PDO’s safety is validated by its clearance from the FDA and its use across 14 countries worldwide. MINT PDO is the best thread available for use in non-surgical thread lifting procedures; and we are proud to offer it to our patients.

With our MINT PDO Thread Lift, you don’t have to wait weeks or months to see your results. Lifting is immediate. Some of the most common requests for our MINT PDO Thread Lift are to create these results:

  • Heart shaped, higher cheekbone contour
  • Exotic, cat eye contour (aka: fox-eye thread lift)
  • Snatched, defined jaw line
  • Softer smile lines
  • Softer or raised eyebrows
  • Smoother neck lines
  • And many more!

Frequently Asked Questions

A thread lift is a non-surgical solution for instant skin lifting. Using either a very fine needle or cannula, our injectors deliver an absorbable MINT PDO thread under the skin. These threads can be either smooth or barbed. Threads can be used for lifting and tightening of the skin while producing and stimulating collagen. Over the course of 6-8 months, collagen will continue to be produced. Collagen helps to keep our skin strong, voluminous and supple.

To ensure your comfort, local anesthesia is provided prior to treatment. During the first several weeks, you may expect to hear or feel mild clicking as threads settle. You can read more about what to expect pre-/post- treatment on our MINT PDO Thread Lift instructions page.

In the meantime, here are a few things that can help you decide if a thread lift is right for you…

During a consultation, we look for appropriate skin thickness (pinchable skin is ideal). A skin layer that is not too thin, too thick, or extremely uneven in the treatment area is optimal for best results. The skin should be thin enough that the thread will make a visible difference once in place; but thick enough so the threads are not too close to the surface of the skin.

Age is only a number: Our MINT PDO Thread Lift is mostly recommended for both women and men who experience moderate sagging in the eyebrows, midface, nasolabial folds, jowls, jawline, neck as well as multiple areas of the body. After assessing your unique needs, we’ll create a plan together to help you reach your goals.

Absolutely. In fact, we encourage it. Our MINT PDO Thread Lift can work in conjunction with other treatments like lasers, Botox, Filler and Kybella.

Ask our injectors about treatment combinations to maximize the effects of MINT PDO. We do require certain time frames pre- and post- treatment to receive them as there is a settling period for the threads.

Fillers can be used either before or after a thread treatment to provide contour, facial symmetry, as well as volume to deep set lines creating a youthful, refreshed appearance.

Botox, especially in the forehead and neck are encouraged to take place before a thread treatment to relax the muscles so the thread lift results can be that much more impactful.

Kybella can be used either before or after a thread treatment. It is usually recommended before to eliminate excess fat and then lift with threads post Kybella treatment for a more contoured profile.

While collagen stimulation is a beautiful result of thread lifting, it does take time. We encourage patients who experience other skin concerns (rosacea, hyperpigmentation, poor texture, etc.), to consult with our certified aestheticians. After your thread lift procedure, your injector can provide guidance on when to receive skin care treatments like facials, HydraFacials, microneedling and lasers.

Maintaining your skin health is so important to your overall health. After all, our skin is our biggest organ.

Each one of our injectable treatments serves its own purpose. One doesn’t replace the other. Depending on your specific concerns and unique aesthetic goals, our expert team of injectors will always recommend the most effective treatment plan for YOU. We never want to over or under treat you. We want you to love your results.

 

BOTOX® = effective for smoothing wrinkles that are formed with movement

DERMAL FILLERS = effective at restoring facial volume, correcting asymmetries, improving deep folds and lines, and providing facial contours

MINT PDO THREADS = a safe and effective way to lift sagging skin to restore the face’s natural and youthful shape and vitality, without surgery

Depending on your goals, and how many threads are needed to yield your desired result, a thread lift procedure can take anywhere from 45 minutes – 90 minutes in length (avg ~ 1 hour).

Thread lift results typically last up to 1 year. We recommend waiting three months prior to retreating the same area, however other areas can be treated at any time. In an effort to build and sustain your beautiful results, please follow the recommendations your injector recommends for follow-up.
