A formal appointment is required to allow enough time during your visit to be treated, if you so desire. The consultation process, (plan to spend at least one hour if you desire treatment after consult) includes an in-depth discussion about your desires with regard to areas of concern. It is the surgeon’s task to explain all aspects of the procedure, the pros and cons, and most importantly, the concept of realistic expectations with regard to your result.
Ideal candidates have concerns about early signs of aging of the face and desire a minimally invasive procedure. This procedure can enhance your appearance and improve overall self-confidence and self-esteem. Benefits can last as long as one year. The best candidates for Mint Thread Lift are healthy individuals who are realistic about what the procedure can afford them after a complete consultation.
Scarring is not an issue because I gain access to areas to be treated by needle penetration. While there are numerous products on the market used for Thread Lift, I have achieved the best results using Mint Fine Threads. This formula works so well because I can achieve maximal lift without causing skin bunching. It has the extra benefit of being minimally invasive and is performed under local anesthesia. There is minimal to no bruising and swelling usually subsides within one or two days. Most people return to work the same day or one day later. Intense physical activity should be avoided for 1-2 days after the procedure.
Longevity varies, as the threads are dissolvable, but the result usually lasts 8-12months, depending on the area on the face. MINT THREAD LIFT offers a natural option for anyone with earlier signs of facial aging who does not desire or need a surgical Mini Facelift or full Facelift. It is performed in my office located on the Upper East Side in New York City. You will be given a follow-up appointment with me in 7-10 days, and minor touch-up, if needed, may be done then.
I have a great deal of experience with all aspects of Mint Thread Lift, and comfortably possess the required expertise to allow me to achieve the best possible results for you.
It depends on how many areas of the face being treated. On an average, 2-3 threads on each side are used to treat each area; forehead, mid face, and neck.
HOW LONG WILL MY RESULTS LAST AFTER MINT THREAD LIFT?
This depends on several factors. The sutures are dissolvable, but designed to last approximately 12 months. However factors such as amount of lift needed, skin quality and area treated all play a role regarding longevity of the procedure. Generally speaking, the results last somewhere between 8 to 12 months.
Not really. It is an ideal option for a younger patient in their 30s or 40s to address early signs of aging such as jowl formation, mid face descent and deepening of nasolabial folds. However it must be understood that Mint Thread Lift is a wonderful, but temporary fix, lasting a year in younger patients and 9-12 months in patients needing more lift.
WHEN CAN I RETURN TO WORK AFTER MINT THREAD LIFT?
While there is little pain and discomfort after the procedure, there can be a bit of swelling and possibly some minor bruising. All minimal. For that reason, many of my patients return to work immediately.
In many cases YES, especially in the younger patients. Mint Thread Lift can be more effective than fillers and in some cases last longer.I have achieved some wonderful results actually combining Mini Thread Lift with fillers with older patients who really require a facelift but cannot miss work or prefers to avoid surgery. For instance, the combination of Mint Thread Lift with fillers like Juvederm Ultra plus in patients with very deep nasolabial folds blunt and soften them more effectively than fillers alone.
