Thread Lifts

Fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, jowling – these are all words we hear and associate with ageing.  Once upon a time surgical facelifts were the only way to improve and achieve facial rejuvenation and a more youthful appearance.

New technologies continually evolve and become available and now with MINT Thread Lifts, you can achieve a sculpted, more contoured, refreshed version of yourself in as little as 30 minutes.

A MINT thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable threads to redefine and restore lost elasticity and volume in the face for a youthful appearance.  These thread lifts cause tension in the skin which gives and immediate lifting effect.  Secondly the material that the threads are made from stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid which creates firmer skin.

The MINT Thread Lift can be used to treat many different areas of the face:

  • Facial contour: this redefines the contour of the face, firming up the skin and giving a fuller look to the cheeks
  • Lower jaw: the contour of the face regains definition and cheeks are redefined
  • Neck: this provides more definition and a stronger contour giving a sleeker appearance
  • Cheeks and cheekbones: the cheeks and cheekbones appear fuller and the nasolabial fold is reduced
  • Eyebrows: this opens up the eyes, and raises the outer edge of the eyebrow
ARE THREAD LIFTS RIGHT FOR ME?
The MINT Thread Lift is recommended for both men and women over the age of 30 who are showing signs of ageing, but do not want undergo an invasive surgical procedure such as a facelift.
WHAT DOES A THREAD LIFT TREATMENT INVOLVE?
Your practitioner may apply topical anaesthetic cream and/or small injections of local anaesthetic to the area being treated, then the thread is placed under the skin. This is usually done through a small incision or with a fine needle. Once the thread is in place, slight compression of the treatment area is performed to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect and skin tightening.
The treatment takes approximately 30-60 minutes.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
Results can be seen immediately and will continue to improve over time. The full results can be seen around 6-12 weeks post procedure and will last approximately 12 months, but this can vary depending on the individual.
