<Insights> 4 Designs of The Minimal Invasive Nonsurgical Thread (MINT) by Dr Jennifer Song

In this week's newsletter, #IFAAS Faculty, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Dr. Jennifer Song shares her exclusive techniques on the design of The Minimal Invasive Nonsurgical Thread (MINT) for various indications.

What is Mint Lift?

The Minimal Invasive Nonsurgical Thread (MINT) Lift is a nonsurgical facelift, specially performed on the face. A face lifting technique using a special suture thread called PDO (polydioxanone), it restores the jawline and V-line of the face by pulling up the sagging skin tissues. This painless and non swelling procedure has a low downtime, allowing patients to achieve immediate natural lift effect. Most importantly, MINT's biodegradable material is FDA approved and absorbed completely. Side effects are so minimal that unnoticeable activities are enabled immediately after the procedure.
