This is a non-surgical procedure to tighten and lift skin on the face and neck using FDA-approved polydioxanone (PDO) sutures made by HansBiomed.
PDO sutures were originally created for cardiothoracic surgery and are one of the safest materials to implant into the body. Within 4 to 6 months, the threads dissolve, leaving no scar tissue.
There is no general anesthesia or down-time involved with the procedure, making it a much safer and easier alternative to a traditional facelift - it can even be done on your lunch break!
We are able to do a full face lift, mid-face lift, and neck lift with the PDO threads. Best results are achieved when paired with injectables, such as anti-wrinkle injections (Botox, Xeomin) and dermal fillers (Juvederm, Radiesse), for facial rejuvenation procedures. We are also able to package the thread lift with Radio Frequency skin tightening treatments to boost the results.
A consultation is required prior to the procedure to determine if you are a candidate, and a deposit is required. Call (323)507-2311 or click below to schedule.
MINT™ procedures are safe for adults who keep up with healthy lifestyles and have maintained their weight for at least three months.
After the procedure, patients may immediately return to daily lives, but they should consult with their physicians before resuming exercise and other intense activities.
Although minimal, side effects may include but are not limited to bruising, dimpling, and swelling.
