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. It is less invasive than traditional facelift surgery – it is more convenient, involves less risk and is less expensive.
The MINT Thread Lift does two things; firstly, the threads cause tension in the skin that gives an immediate lifting effect. Secondly the material that the threads are made from, PDO, stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid in the skin which creates firmer skin.
Popular Treatment areas
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 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.

A small injection of local anaesthetic is applied to the area being treated, then the thread is placed under the skin. This is done usually through a small incision or with a fine needle. Once the thread is in place, slight
compression of the tissue is performed to reshape it by hand and to obtain the desired lifting effect and skin tightening.
The MINT Thread Lift procedure takes approximately 30-60 minutes.
Local anaesthetic is used to minimise any discomfort.
With any treatment there is always the possibility of some side effects. After treatment there may be
swelling, bruising, redness, pain, discolouration or tenderness where the threads are placed. There can also be puckering/irregularity of the skin; all of these reactions usually resolve spontaneously within several days after the treatment. There is also a potential risk of infection.
