MINT vs Silhouette Soft: Comparison between the 2 FDA-approved Absorbable Threads

September 28, 2017


It is a question on the minds of thousands of aesthetic doctors, but the truth is "MINT or Silhouette Soft" will always be a battle between the only 2 FDA-approved absorbable threads. 




That begs the questions:  What are the key differences between both threads? 


To put an end to this debate, we pitted the two threads against each other in a specs comparison chart. 



In our comparison study, we gathered everything you need to know to help you decide which thread is best for you. Let's take a look at this breakdown:

Final Verdict


Despite being the new kid of its block, it is noticeable that MINT lift has a relatively stronger lifting power and better spec designs in comparison.

Both threads definitely do their part in face-lifting, but it seems -on paper, at least- MINT threads do have a better value in terms of design and specs.
