Thread Lift; The Bridge Between Fillers And Facelift

After much research and trial and error with several products, I have introduced Mint Thread Lift into my practice, and I am extremely pleased with this new addition.

Facial Thread Lift involves placement of thin barbed sutures beneath the skin in key locations, which then lift and tighten the skin within those areas.  The threads are inserted through minute needle punctures under local anesthesia, providing a minimally invasive, natural aesthetic improvement of treated areas. My extensive knowledge of facial anatomy combined with surgical expertise used for regular facelift surgery, allows me to place the threads in optimal position for maximal effect. The threads are not permanent, as they are made of absorbable synthetic material that may actually improve collagen formation as they dissolve. 

The result lasts between 9 to 12 months and is an excellent option for those individuals who are not quite ready for a facelift, but require increasing volume of facial fillers to maintain their youthful appearance.  Thread lift combined with facial fillers can provide a nonsurgical mini facelift, without the down time. A wonderful, but temporary aesthetic option. Commonly treated areas include drooping lateral eyebrows, mid face nasolabial folds, jowls and sagging neck lines.

Mint Thread Lift is an ideal option for a quick and easy facial rejuvenation before a big event like a wedding or marker birthday. There is minimal bruising and swelling and normal activities may be resumed within 24 hours after the procedure. While it is not a replacement for facelift surgery, when needed, it is a wonderful option for those patients who fit it’s indications. Come and explore those options with us at any time.
