Lift sagging skin and improve elasticity
Renowned for their excellent lifting capacity
What are threads?
Threads are made of similar material as surgical sutures which are used to close wounds. The material is PDO (Polydioxanone) and has been used for many years. Mint stands for: Minimally Invasive Non-Surgical thread lift. Coming from South Korea, a hot spot for advances in non-surgical techniques, MINT threads are fairly new to Australia and are renowned for their excellent lifting capacity. They are currently the strongest thread on the market.
Where are they used?
They are used mainly on the face but can be used anywhere there is sagging skin including the neck décolletage, buttocks and abdomen.
How do they work?
Each thread has many tiny hooks which can strongly anchor to the tissue just under the skin. With a little tension these barbs engage and help lift sagging skin. Over approximately 6-9 months the
body absorbs the thread and new collagen forms in it’s place.
Furthermore, skin texture, elasticity and fine lines are also improved.
The procedure usually takes less than an hour and is done under local anaesthetic with little discomfort. You can expect swelling, possible bruising and tightness for a few days to a week after treatment. This a very safe procedure with very few side effects.
How much does it cost?
$250 per thread * usually need 4-8 per side of the face
The No Trace Face
The no trace face is Dr Nik’s mantra. THE NO TRACE FACE: ‘undetectable’ anti-ageing treatments delivered by a doctor. Look good without appearing puffy, fake or ‘over done.’
The beauty of non-surgical treatments is that if they are performed well, they give a fantastically natural result, leaving patients looking fresher, younger and less tired without any obvious traces of a doctor’s needle.
The aesthetic industry is often misrepresented by the overdone and puffy look. You will not find this at NDSKIN. Dr Nik is of the opinion that less is often more and ideally no one should know that you have had a treatment (Once any swelling has gone down of course!)
