Perich Aesthetics surgeons employ absorbable sutures to visibly lift and rejuvenate your skin. They lift portions of the skin to tighten it and stimulate the body’s natural healing response to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas.
Perich Aesthetics surgeons offer minimally invasive nonsurgical thread (MINT) lift, which addresses signs of aging that impact the mid-face area. These changes, such as sagging skin, are caused by gravity, so this procedure strives to create a sharper jawline and V-line with minimal incisions in the hairline. This procedure relies on absorbable sutures to visibly lift and rejuvenate your complexion, tightening the skin and stimulating the body’s natural healing response to infuse the surgical site with rejuvenating collagen.
Unlike a traditional facelift surgery, the MINT procedure causes minimal scarring and requires little downtime. You’ll enjoy subtle, natural results that create a younger, more alert appearance. In the weeks and months after the procedure, the skin will continue to look firmer and more toned as a result of the influx of collagen to the treated area.
This type of facelift can be conducted in an office setting under local anesthesia. Most clients can return to work and other activities right away, although it’s important to avoid disrupting the treated area in the weeks after surgery.
This procedure is most appropriate for individuals who have mild to moderate facial sagging, typically those between their late 30s and mid-50s. It also provides a safe, effective alternative to a traditional facelift for patients who cannot undergo open surgery because of cardiovascular problems or other health issues.
