LIFTING THREADS

_____________

Lifting threads provide immediate results  that continue to improve over the six months post-procedure. The cuts or striations in these threads provide lifting properties. When placed under the skin, they catch the tissue and allow for it to hold  in place, creating a visible lift & at the same time, promote the creation of collagen to revitalize skin. The “lifting threads” are those that are used for the non-surgical facelift.

PDO Threads by MINT™

MINT™ threads stand out from any other thread options because of the barbs that hold the suture in place. Additionally, MINT™ threads are the only FDA approved threads for facial tissue fixation. These threads are stronger & deliver a longer-lasting lift than other types of threads. And on top of that, cause minimal tissue reaction and trauma during the procedure. 

The MINT™ PDO is backed by over 6 years of clinical studies for safety and efficacy. It is the only PDO suture with two FDA clearances.

OUR PROCESS

When you arrive for your procedure, you always get one-on-one attention from Dr. Julie Keiffer, who specializes in PDO threads and other aesthetics procedures.

You’ll get to discuss your health history, current concerns, and goals so we can determine if PDO threads are the right option for you.

If you’re new to PDO threads, we review the process from start to end for your treatment. The procedure starts with local anesthesia and Dr. Keiffer will insert the dissolvable threads under the skin to create immediate & natural-looking lift.

Depending on the area, the procedure will take from 70 to 90 minutes. After your procedure, you’ll be able to leave and return to your life as usual the next day. Soreness may result from placement of the threads and some patients experience minor bruising or swelling, but it typically resolves within a few days.
