Mint Lift
Are you unhappy with your facial contours, but too afraid to go “under-the-knife”? Dr. Richard Swift would like to introduce you to the revolutionary new MINT Lift. A minimally-invasive, FDA-approved, cosmetic technique that allows patients to achieve that facial lift, and aesthetic enhancement they desire without the need for a full surgical Facelift!

Inevitable Aging
As the years go by, age gets the best of us all! The unavoidable truth is that with age our skin tends to lose certain vital compounds such as collagen and elastin. These essential compounds cause the face to lose its once youthful contours and its elasticity. Without collagen and elastin, the skin loses volume, and certain issues like wrinkles, fine lines, facial folds, & loose, sagging skin develop. The causes are once tight facial silhouette to droop, making us looker older and removing our taught facial angles.

What is the Mint Lift?
In order to combat these issues, patient seek out surgical enhancements such as a facelift. While facelifts can alleviate these issues, many patients fear a full surgical procedure and are on the lookout for less costly, less invasive procedures. Here is where the MINT lift comes in!

The MINT Lift, or the Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread Lift, is a nonsurgical facelift, that is specially designed to lift and restore youthful facial contours, without the need for a fully invasive facelift. The MINT technique uses special sutures or threads known as PDO threads, or (polydioxanone) threads. PDO threads restore the jawline and the “V-line” of the face by pulling up or lifting the sagging skin tissue. The threads are completely biodegradable and dissolve right into the skin.

Benefits of the MINT Lift

  • Quick procedure, most MINT Lift’s only require about 15-30 minutes to complete.
  • The only non-surgical face-lift treatment that effectively lifts the entire face.
  • Instant results. Because this is only semi-invasive there is not long healing period, and the PDO threads lift the sagging skin instantly!
  • Low Risk Procedure. Most patients don’t experience many side effects, however, some patients may experience some swelling, redness, and minor bruising.
  • Because the procedure isn’t a full surgery, we only use local anesthesia, rather than general anesthesia. So you aren’t put to sleep during the procedure.

Is the MINT Lift Painful?
The MINT Lift is relatively pain-free, and patients are given local anesthesia to numb any pain or discomfort.

The results of the procedure are visible immediately after! And last anywhere from one year to many years, depending on the severity of correction, and certain factors that differ patient-to-patient.

Aftercare or Recovery?
The procedure requires 0 downtime! Patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the procedure!
