MINT™ Thread Lift
The clinical experts at Long Island Plastic Surgical Group offer a comprehensive range of minimally-invasive facial rejuvenation treatments. MINT PDO Threads are often referred to as the “lunchtime facelift” because they offer a non-surgical procedure that can contour and lift sagging facial skin in the brow, mid-face, chin, and neck in a quick and easy in-office procedure and have you back to work in under an hour and a half.
What Are MINT PDO Threads?
Each MINT Thread is an absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) suture that is strategically inserted under the face or neck skin to provide tightening and lifting effects for an overall more youthful, and less lax facial appearance. Due to their patented molded barbs, MINT Threads are able to retain a stronger anchor on the subdermal tissues, providing instantaneous and longer-lasting lifting and tightening results. In addition, MINT Threads are the only PDO thread available that have been FDA-cleared for reducing nasolabial folds.
The MINT Thread Lifting Procedure
During your MINT Thread Lift consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to discuss your cosmetic goals with your provider. If MINT Threads are determined to be appropriate to help you achieve the look you want, you and your provider will work together to create a personalized treatment plan and schedule your procedure. On the day of your treatment, your provider will start by applying a topical numbing agent to ensure your comfort during the procedure. Once the skin is sufficiently numb, your provider will inject each MINT Thread into a predetermined location outlined in your treatment plan. It is normal to experience mild tenderness, swelling, and some redness on or around the injection site, but this will subside in several hours. Typically, patients can plan to resume normal activities immediately following their procedure.
