The State of Thread Lifting: Facial Analysis, Patient Selection, Options, Expectations and Reality

Glenn Vallecillos, M.D.
Thread lifting offers a viable alternative to more invasive and more costly tissue elevation and suspension procedures. When used selectively with a foundation of proper facial analysis and patient selection, excellent, predictable results can be achieved. Thread lifting, ideally serves to complement a host of minimally-invasive aesthetic rejuvenation procedures such as fillers, biostimulators, neurotoxins, and soft-tissue tightening techniques. Given the recent resurgence in popularity in thread lifting with several new devices on the market, clinicians are now presented with options to best suit their patient's needs. With the majority of aesthetic medical advances being largely non/minimally invasive, it stands to reason that thread lifting will become increasingly adopted into aesthetic practices. Careful analysis and scrutiny is therefore indicated.

Essentials in MINT Lift

Jennifer Song, M.D.
Over the years numerous thread lifting products and techniques have been introduced, including the suspension method, floating types, absorbable versus non-absorbable. All claimed to achieve the utmost "lifting" facial tissues without invasive surgery. However, most did not meet patient or physician expectations, leaving patients with undercorrection, asymmetric results, dimples, visible thread tracks and other irregularities, etc. The facial tissue in an individual may vary to a certain degree, depending on the degree of attenuation of retaining ligaments or the volume deflation of specific fat compartments. The technique of powerful mechanical lifting provided via the MINT lift, consistently deploys threads to the proper layer of the tissue providing you with more secure and longer lasting results.
