MINT

REDISCOVER YOUR YOUTH.

The Ultimate NonSurgical Lift

MINT is an acronym for Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread, representing an innovative approach to instantly and effectively rejuvenate sagging tissues by lifting and tightening them. MINT employs polydioxanone (PDO), a secure synthetic biodegradable monofilament that both stimulates collagen production and gradually dissolves. Rediscover your skin’s youthful firmness and elasticity with MINT, effectively turning back the hands of time.

Benefits of MINT

  • MINT PDO Threads are designed to lift and tighten sagging skin, helping to restore a more youthful and firm appearance.
  • This treatment is non-surgical, meaning there are no incisions, cutting, or general anesthesia required, reducing the associated risks and downtime.
  • MINT PDO Threads provide subtle and natural-looking results, enhancing your appearance without an exaggerated or overdone look.
  • As the threads gradually dissolve, they stimulate the production of collagen, which further improves skin texture and elasticity over time.

Ready to get started?

The MINT Lift procedure can be accomplished within just 1 hour and delivers results that endure for up to 1 year. Immediate changes are noticeable, with the most remarkable improvements generally becoming evident after approximately one month. As the threads gradually dissolve, they encourage the development of new collagen, fortifying the skin’s layers and enhancing its overall complexion and texture. This revitalization leaves you feeling refreshed both internally and externally.

How Do MINT Threads Work?

MINT represents a secure and absorbable suture specially crafted to bring together sagging tissues. After the thread is introduced into the skin, the small barbs on the thread secure themselves to the sagging tissue and are subsequently adjusted to enhance and accentuate your inherent features. Over a period of 6-8 months, the thread gradually dissolves, potentially triggering your body to generate its own collagen, thus further enhancing the overall appearance of your skin.

When Can I See Results?

On average, the procedure typically lasts about 1 hour, and immediate results become visible. Patients can anticipate experiencing minimal discomfort, minimal scarring, and minimal recovery time when compared to surgical alternatives. As time passes, results will continue to enhance as swelling, redness, and bruising gradually diminish.

Can I Get PDO Threads More Than Once?

Although a single treatment may suffice for certain individuals, you have the option to undergo PDO thread treatment again if desired. These threads fully dissolve within a period of 6 to 8 months, allowing for the possibility of repeat treatments after consulting with your healthcare provider.

How Safe is It?

The threads are crafted from polydioxanone (PDO), a sophisticated sugar-based material that has a proven track record of safety. PDO has been utilized in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for more than three decades. What sets MINT apart is its extensive safety profile, supported by over six years of documented research. Furthermore, MINT stands out as the first PDO suture in the US market to have obtained three FDA clearances.

How Long is the Downtime?

Following the procedure, you can promptly return to your regular daily routine. For more strenuous activities like exercise, it’s advisable to wait a week before resuming them. However, it’s essential to consult with your provider before doing so.

Are There Any Side Effects?

Typical side effects may encompass sensations of tenderness, minor bruising, swelling, and mild discomfort. Should you encounter any unusual issues or if the side effects persist longer than expected, we urge you to seek guidance from your healthcare provider. To mitigate the potential for complications, we strongly advise ensuring that your provider possesses verified professional training credentials in PDO thread procedures.

What Our Patients Are Saying

{Michael Flynn with Melamed Weight and Wellness saved my life. I have tried every diet possible but it wasn't until I met Michael Flynn, a Lipidologist and Nutritional Specialist, that my life changed. So far, I've lost 65 pounds and counting. Michael has gotten me off my medications including Coumadin. My new Doctor has marveled at the progress I've made and continue to make. I have my life back and feel fabulous because of Michael Flynn.{

{Dr. Melamed, and Michael Flynn have been truly outstanding. I started seeing Michael about 3 months ago and in that time I have had a complete healthy transformation which I really did not think could be possible. The benefits I have achieved by following a very easy nutritional plan was amazing. I have worked out my entire life excessively and have never achieved the results like I have in the last few months. Great staff and one of the best life changing decisions I have ever made.{
