Thread Lift


Thread Lift is a safe and effective moulding PDO thread to lift soft tissues in sagging skin. It is a minimally invasive treatment without scarring and trauma to the skin so that patients can get back to daily life right after the procedure. Human tissue consists of a 3D structure, so it is hard to see a great result with threads that do not have a 3D helical type of barb. The superior thread used for Thread Lift by this clinic has a 360 degree of helical barbs around the threads that creates a strong pulling effect by fixing the facial tissue in various directions effectively giving instant facelift.

what is pdo?

PDO (Polydioxanone) is a material often used in surgical sutures and is completely absorbable by the body. PDO threads dissolve around 6-9 months after insertion and create cellular renewal and collagen stimulation to maintain the lift for another 6-9 months. At the same time, PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract, producing a skin tightening effect.


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 to undergo a full facelift or any heavy invasive surgery. The MINT Thread Lift treatment exists as a non-surgical alternative to invasive surgery. It is basically a non-surgical facelift that can create beautiful, natural-looking results.


There are 2 types of threads

PDO Long threads are placed in the deep tissue layers of the face where they are fixed in those layers and skin is pulled over them causing instant facelift and also collagen regeneration in long run.

PDO short threads or Mono threads are made from Polydioxanone – an absorbable polymer and are smooth without barbs. These threads are inserted into the sub-dermal level, in a mesh-like pattern, promoting the production of new collagen. The threads activate collagen synthesis which produces gradual skin thickening, skin tightening and has a rejuvenating effect. These results begin to show six weeks after treatment lasting up to twelve months.


The 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.
Also, Mono Threads can be used to treat areas depleted in volume and fine lines, and wrinkles.




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.

A local anesthetic is used to minimize any discomfort.

You may experience some slight swelling or bruising which subside within a few days. Some discomfort may be experienced but can be managed with paracetamol. Your practitioner may prescribe a course of antibiotics to guard against any potential infection.

Results can be seen immediately and will continuously 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.

With any treatment, there is always the possibility of some side effects. After treatment, there may be swelling, bruising, redness, pain, discoloration, 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.
