Botox/dermal fillers - I was looking for medically trained practitioners, due to my immune disorder and was recommended about 2 years ago to see Emma. I felt safe with her  recommendations, as I was worried about having Botox. She put my mind at rest and the rest is history. Her team are amazing along with the new clinic which I attended today. I have had other treatments and will continue to go.

Dermal fillers - I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to have a procedure I never even thought of having recently, Cheek fillers. From start to finish Tara was wonderful and explained everything before and after to me. I was absolutely buzzing when I left the clinic. Tara was very professional and very knowledgeable…… the difference it made in minutes was incredible.

What happens during a Mint PDO Thread Lift?

The treatment itself is relatively quick with no cutting or incisions involved.

Local anaesthetic is injected and this is all that is required for patients to remain comfortable throughout. It is generally very well tolerated an most clients don't find it particularly painful.

The threads are inserted under the skin via cannula and are pulled to produce an immediate lifting effect.

Who are good candidates for the Mint PDO Thread Lift?

The procedure is recommended for both women and men ages 30-50+ who experience mild to moderate skin laxity in the face and neck, and who are not heavy smokers and/or drinkers. It is also recommended not to have any surgery at least 4 months before the treatment.

Are there any side effects for the Mint PDO Thread Lift?

The MINT PDO thread lift is a very safe procedure, with no serious side effects. Mild bruising, swelling and tenderness are expected after the procedure, which will resolve over 7-14 days.

What are the results?

The great thing about the MINT PDO thread lift is that you can immediately see natural-looking lifting results, such as:

  • Heart-shaped, higher cheekbone contour
  • Softer smile lines
  • Softer eyebrows
  • Smoother neck lines
  • Defined jaw line
How long do the Mint PDO Thread Lift results last?

Results will continue to improve over time as your body starts to regenerate more collagen for the next 3-6 months, up to one year. After 1-2 months, the skin will look rejuvenated, and you will notice a firmer and smoother texture to it.

It is important that you choose a specialist who is extremely knowledgeable in advanced thread lifting techniques with years of experience in aesthetic procedures, such as expert nurse practitioner Melanie Recchia. Everyone's faces are different and Melanie will discuss your aesthetic goals and create a customized treatment plan during your initial consultation.
