MINT thread lift differs from other thread lifts primarily because of the shape of the barbs on the sutures that hold the tissue of the face in place. The barbs on the MINT threads are a helical shape that are molded instead of cut.
The MINT lift, or minimally invasive nonsurgical thread face lift, is an option for those looking to have some of the benefits of a facelift without the downtime and recovery associated with a surgical facelift. The MINT thread lift involves the use of a special suture thread that holds the tissues of the face in place while they heal in a youthful, lifted position.
The sutures are made of biodegradable material that eventually dissolves and is absorbed by your body. The sutures have small barbs on them that anchor the skin in place, instantaneously lifting cheeks and restoring a youthful definition to the jawline.
The procedure will require a local anesthesia unless other methods of anesthesia are suggested in your consultation. The procedure requires no incisions and so you will not be living with any visible scarring. The sutures will be placed and anchored so that your facial tissues are held in a lifted position during the healing process. This results in immediate changes to your appearance with minimal to no downtime. Most people can expect to return to their normal activities directly after the procedure. The full results can be seen in the following months as the tissue heals and the threads dissolve.
Candidates for a MINT thread lift are those who are looking for a nonsurgical option for a facelift. Ideal candidates maintain a stable weight or have maintained a stable weight for at least three months. Candidates for a MINT thread lift should also be in good health and non-smokers or able to stop smoking for a period of time before and after the procedure.

Other thread lifts such as the silhouette instalift, involve the use of sutures with small cones to hold the facial tissues in place. Most often the sutures of these various lifts are made of the same material and will produce fairly similar results, such as boosted collagen production and a lifted appearance.
