The Minimal Invasive Nonsurgical Thread (MINT) Lift is a nonsurgical facelift most commonly performed on the midface to raise the skin falling at the jowls. The procedure addresses signs of aging caused by gravity, such as sagging skin, by restoring the sharper jaw line and V-line of the patient’s youth. With no incisions, patients experience no scarring, and MINT’s biodegradable material, polydiaxone (common absorbable suture material), is FDA approved, dissolves completely, and stimulates the activation of collagen production. Side effects are so minimal that patients may return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure, with their new instant results.
These threads can also be used in additional applications to include reducing drooping of the forehead and resolving deep grooves and wrinkles in the brow that are not alleviated with Botox.
