WHAT ARE MINT THREADS?
THEY ARE HYPODERMIC NEEDLES PRELOADED WITH A PDO ABSORBABLE SUTURE.
PDO a synthetic absorbable surgical suture composed of polydioxanone, one of the safest materials to be implanted in the body.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our skin is very good at repairing itself, and by inserting MINT THREADS we make it ‘heal’ itself by creating new collagen, naturally!
MINT MESH & MINT LIFT
MINT Mesh – consists of creating a mesh under the skin (i.e. 2 sutures inserted vertically & 3 sutures horizontally). Sort of like a #hashtag, or a net. This Mesh will serve as the foundation for our new collagen production. The MINT Mesh tightens the skin naturally from within. Results appear naturally, without any drastic change!
MINT Lift – The other technique, called the MINT Lift is utilized to produce a more dramatic and immediate result. The PDO sutures have “barbs” or “cogs”, which provide a grip underneath the skin. Sutures are inserted the same way, except they can be pulled in 1 or 2 directions, creating an instant skin repositioning. Just like the MINT Mesh, the skin will then build new collagen which will secure the lift!
