Are you discouraged by loose or sagging skin? Do you want to reclaim your youthful appearance without invasive surgery? If so, revolutionary thread lifts (MINT PDO) could turn back the hands of time and revitalize your skin in one simple appointment. We’re thrilled to offer this cosmetic service to our patients at the Advanced Dermatology Center in Wolcott, CT.
What Are Thread Lifts (MINT PDO)?
While the concept of a PDO thread lift has been around for decades, our thread lifts (MINT PDO) take skin rejuvenation to a whole new level. These minimally invasive nonsurgical threads (MINT for short) offer superior skin tightening and lifting effects for patients of all ages. The threads are injected into the target skin, where they self-anchor in place. They are then pulled tight by one of our trained staff to achieve maximum lift and erase lines, wrinkles, and loose skin.
The treatment process for these top-quality threads is quick, easy, and pain-free. A typical appointment takes between 45-60 minutes for most patients, making it convenient for every schedule. The recovery period requires zero downtime from your favorite activities, and results can be both dramatic and long-lasting. Best of all, this treatment option is considered safe and effective for the vast majority of patients.
How Does It Work?
For your treatment, we use PDO (polydioxanone) threads, which have been used in surgical procedures for years with positive results. After an initial consultation with our doctor, you can schedule your first thread lift appointment. During this appointment, your skin will be numbed and one of our skilled staff members will inject the threads with a hollow needle. Once the threads are anchored in the lower layers of your skin, they can be secured in place.
Results are instantly visible, and most patients report a noticeable difference in lines, wrinkles, and skin laxity once their skin is lifted. After treatment, you can expect a brief period of healing, during which time you should avoid rubbing or pressing on the treated areas. Final results typically last approximately a year, although many patients see results lasting even longer.
Who Is an Ideal Candidate?
If you are an adult man or woman who wishes to improve the appearance of loose skin, you could be the perfect candidate for a thread lift. We recommend that you are generally healthy at the time of your appointment and that you are free of any medical conditions that may interact negatively with the thread injections.
In addition, the target skin should be free from any infection or irritation in the week leading up to your first appointment. If you have any questions about your candidacy, our staff can help you evaluate your candidacy for treatment during your initial consultation.
If loose skin and wrinkles are keeping you down, our thread lifts (MINT PDO) can transform your skin and reveal a younger-looking you in minutes.
