    MINT™ PDO Thread Lift in Portland

    Greetings from Division Street Dental, your dedicated partner in achieving and maintaining not just a healthy smile but also a youthful and radiant appearance. We understand that the beauty of a smile is complemented by the vitality of the skin that frames it. Thus, it is with great pleasure that we announce the expansion of our aesthetic services with the addition of MINT™ PDO Thread Lift – a cutting-edge solution to the visible signs of aging.

    Rediscovering Youth with MINT™ Lift

    The quest for enduring youth has been a perennial human pursuit, and in the contemporary realm of aesthetic enhancement, we offer a beacon of hope. The MINT™ Lift, a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure, has emerged as a beacon of innovation in the pursuit of this quest. By addressing the natural decline of collagen and elastin, the twin pillars of our skin’s elasticity and firmness, MINT™ Lift stands as a vanguard against the inexorable tide of aging.

    The core of the MINT™ Lift’s philosophy is the empowerment of the body’s own regenerative capabilities. Utilizing polydioxanone (PDO), a material renowned for its safety and compatibility with the body, these threads not only lift sagging tissues but also catalyze the natural production of collagen. The procedure itself is a marvel of convenience, requiring minimal downtime, and offering results that are both immediate and enduring for up to a year.

    Experiencing the MINT™ PDO Threads Difference

    MINT™ PDO threads are distinct in their patented design, offering unparalleled strength and longevity due to their press-molded barbs. The innovation does not stop there, as MINT™ Lift offers an array of treatment options, addressing areas from nasolabial folds to marionette lines, and even allowing for the sculpting of the elusive “fox eye” or “cat eye” aesthetics.

    8 Benefits of MINT™ PDO Threads

    Division Street Dental is delighted to introduce the revolutionary MINT™ Lift procedure, which offers an array of advantages for individuals seeking a youthful visage without the invasiveness of traditional surgery. Here is a comprehensive enumeration of the benefits:

    1) Non-Surgical Skin Elevation and Contraction:

    The MINT™ Lift is an exquisite alternative to conventional surgery, meticulously designed to elevate and contract lax skin. This modality allows for the rejuvenation of your facial contour with the utmost subtlety and precision, absent the need for invasive surgical interventions.

    2) Minimized Recovery Period

    One of the paramount benefits of the MINT™ Lift is the nominal recovery time required post-treatment. Patients can anticipate resuming their daily routines almost immediately, sparing the extensive downtime typically associated with surgical facelifts.

    3) Financially Accessible

    Cost-effectiveness is a significant consideration, and the MINT™ Lift is positioned as an economically favorable procedure. It affords patients the opportunity to achieve their aesthetic aspirations without incurring the substantial financial outlay typically associated with aesthetic surgeries.

    4) Immediate Enhancement Visibility

    Upon completion of the MINT™ Lift procedure, patients are often able to discern tangible results instantaneously. This immediate visibility of enhancement is a compelling aspect of the treatment, offering gratification without the delay of waiting for results to manifest.

    5) Sustained Results for an Extended Duration

    The effects of the MINT™ Lift are enduring, with the potential to last up to one year. This longevity of result allows patients to enjoy a prolonged period of revitalized and youthful appearance.

    6) Collagen Renewal Stimulation

    A fundamental advantage of the MINT™ Lift is its ability to stimulate the genesis of new collagen. Collagen is instrumental in maintaining the skin’s structural integrity and elasticity. This procedure not only temporarily modifies the facial contour but also promotes underlying physiological improvements in skin quality.

    7) Biocompatible and Absorbable Material

    The threads utilized in the MINT™ Lift are comprised of a material that is both biocompatible and fully absorbable. This ensures that the procedure is aligned with the body’s natural processes, reducing the likelihood of adverse reactions and ensuring that the threads are harmlessly assimilated over time.

    8) Complementary to Other Aesthetic Treatments

    The MINT™ Lift is a versatile procedure that can be integrated with a variety of other cosmetic treatments. This compatibility allows for a whole-body holistic approach to facial rejuvenation, wherein patients can avail themselves of a comprehensive suite of procedures to achieve their desired aesthetic outcomes.

    At Division Street Dental, we are committed to providing our patients with cutting-edge solutions that align with their lifestyle and aesthetic goals. The MINT™ Lift stands as a testament to our dedication to offering treatments that are not only transformative but also attuned to the desires of modern patients who seek efficiency, safety, and efficacy.

    Before MINT™ PDO Thread Lift

    Before undergoing the MINT™ PDO Thread Lift, many individuals may observe that their facial skin exhibits signs of aging. These signs can include:

    • Sagging skin, particularly around the jowls, cheeks, and neck area.
    • Deepening of nasolabial folds, commonly known as smile lines.
    • Formation of marionette lines, which can give the face a downturned expression.
    • Diminished definition along the jawline, leading to a less contoured facial profile.
    • General loss of skin elasticity and firmness, resulting in a tired and aged appearance.
    • Fine lines and wrinkles becoming more prominent, especially around the eyes, forehead, and mouth.
    • A desire to enhance specific facial features, such as achieving a more lifted brow or a refined jawline, without resorting to invasive surgical procedures.

    For those experiencing the above concerns, the visage may appear tired, and the skin may lack the youthful vitality it once had. Individuals might feel that their external appearance does not reflect their inner vitality and may seek solutions that offer rejuvenation without extensive downtime or surgery.

    After MINT™ PDO Thread Lift

    Following the MINT™ PDO Thread Lift, individuals will likely notice a significant improvement in their facial appearance. The changes can be both subtle and profound, manifesting as:

    • A noticeable lift in sagging areas of the skin, provides a more youthful contour and definition, especially around the jawline and cheeks.
    • Softening of nasolabial folds and marionette lines, leads to a smoother, more refreshed facial demeanor.
    • Restoration of volume in areas that appeared hollow or sunken, contributing to a plumper, more vibrant skin texture.
    • Improved skin elasticity and firmness, giving the face a firmer, more resilient quality.
    • Reduction in the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles, enhancing the overall smoothness of the skin.
    • Specific facial features, such as the eyebrows or the shape of the eyes, can be subtly altered for a desired “fox eye” or “cat eye” aesthetic, contributing to a more rejuvenated and alert appearance.
    • A reinvigorated sense of confidence in one’s appearance, often accompanied by compliments from others noticing a more rested and rejuvenated look.

    Post-treatment, patients typically report feeling more aligned with their youthful spirit, with their external appearance reflecting this newfound rejuvenation. The minimal downtime associated with the procedure means that they can quickly return to their regular activities, enjoying their refreshed appearance with little interruption to their daily lives. The MINT™ PDO Thread Lift thus serves as a transformative step in the journey toward aesthetic enhancement and personal fulfillment.

    How MINT™ PDO Thread Words

    MINT™ PDO threads come in two varieties: lifting and smooth threads.

    Lifting Threads

    These threads are designed with barbs that attach to the tissue, allowing for a pull that lifts and secures the tissue, resulting in a more contoured appearance. MINT™ threads use a unique patented technology that molds the barbs onto the thread in a helical pattern, enhancing durability compared to threads with cut barbs.

    Key aspects

    1. MINT™ threads have molded barbs for a durable lift as they dissolve slowly.
    2. They provide comprehensive fixation for maximum hold.

    Smooth Threads

    These are barbless PDO threads that target skin texture, elasticity, and fine lines. They are smaller and placed closer to the skin’s surface. As they dissolve, they stimulate collagen production and tissue contraction, offering a subtler effect than fillers.

    What’s the Difference Between Face Lifts and PDO Thread Lifts? 

    Facelifts offer a long-term solution for pronounced sagging skin with results lasting up to 10 years but require significant investment and recovery time. PDO thread lifts present a cost-effective, minimally invasive alternative for skin tightening, with immediate, natural results and minimal downtime.

    FAQs on MINT™ Lifts

    When can I see the results?

    The MINT™ Lift is a minimally invasive and non-surgical cosmetic procedure that takes about an hour to complete, with results typically visible immediately after. The final outcome improves progressively as post-treatment effects like swelling and redness dissipate.

    How long will my results last?

    The inserted PDO threads dissolve within 6-8 months, but the skin rejuvenation effects can endure for up to a year. This is due to the procedure’s stimulation of collagen production. The longevity of results will vary according to individual characteristics such as skin sagging severity, skin thickness, and facial structure.

    How long is the downtime?

    Post-procedure downtime is minimal; daily activities can usually be resumed right away. It is advisable to wait one week before resuming strenuous activities like exercise, following consultation with your provider.

    How safe is it?

    MINT™ threads are composed of PDO, a synthetic, biodegradable polymer that’s been safely used in various medical applications for over three decades. With an exceptional safety profile evidenced by over six years of published studies and triple FDA clearance, MINT™ is a safe option for those seeking aesthetic enhancements.

    Am I a good candidate for PDO threads?

    A consultation is necessary to establish if you are an ideal candidate for MINT™ procedures. During this consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to express your aesthetic goals and discuss which areas you wish to improve, allowing the provider to customize the treatment to your needs.

    Can I get other treatments in combination with PDO threads?

    Yes, MINT™ lifts can be effectively combined with other aesthetic treatments to target various concerns for cumulative benefits.

    Are there any side effects?

    Common side effects include tenderness, minor bruising, and swelling, generally resolving swiftly. If you encounter any other complications or prolonged side effects, it is important to consult your provider. To reduce the risk of complications, ensure that your provider has received certified PDO thread training.

    Can I get a MINT™ lift more than once?

    If necessary, additional PDO thread lifts can be performed since the threads are fully absorbable, allowing for sustained aesthetic enjoyment over an extended period.

    Are all PDO threads the same?

    No, PDO threads differ based on the manufacturing process. Unlike threads formed by cutting which may be less durable, MINT™ utilizes patented press-molding for the barbs, ensuring the threads maintain their integrity for a more reliable lift.

    The Comparative Advantage

    In the landscape of aesthetic treatments, MINT™ PDO Thread Lift stands out as a less invasive, cost-effective alternative to traditional facelifts. With minimal downtime, the procedure offers a seamless integration into your lifestyle, with the potential to be complemented by other treatments for a holistic approach to facial rejuvenation.
