The nose is one of the most important and defining features on your face and can affect the entire appearance of your face. If you are feeling unhappy or unconfident because of the shape or position of your nose but are not interested in undergoing invasive surgery like a rhinoplasty, the nose thread lift is an option.
Although a surgical rhinoplasty to change the appearance of the nose is the gold standard treatment, often however, the pain and recovery period associated with this procedure , can deter people from undergoing the procedure.
One of the main advantages of getting a MINT PDO nose thread lift over a Surgical rhinoplasty is that a nose thread lift is a minimally invasive non-surgical procedure. This means there will not be any cutting or surgery involved.
Another advantage of undergoing a nose thread lift over a rhinoplasty is that it offers instant visible results with minimal downtime. This is a safe and quick way to change the appearance of your nose without having to wait several months to recover or to see the results.
WHAT IS A MINT PDO THREAD?
Mint PDO is a safe, effective, biocompatible, and dissolvable suture composed of “polydioxanone,” a complex sugar often used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries to suture wounds and incisions.
MINT stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread. You’ll see natural results without the need for surgery.
Mint PDO thread lifts serve a two-fold purpose — Direct skin tightening & Collagen formation. First, the PDO thread lifts reposition the underlying tissues, giving your skin an immediate lift to reduce fine lines. Second, the PDO threads eventually get absorbed by the body and facilitate natural collagen stimulation, leading to long-term improvements in skin texture and elasticity.
The nose thread lift is a non-surgical, reversible, and non-invasive procedure The material is biodegradable, non-antigenic, and non-allergic. This means that your body will absorb them over time.Thanks to the fact there is little to no recovery time involved, most patients can continue with their normal activities after having the procedure.
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?
With a nose thread lift, your doctor will start by applying a local anaesthetic, then follow by putting the threads complete with tiny barbs specifically placed and molded around the thread, beneath the skin, along the bridge of the nose.
The barbs anchor securely into skin that is sagging and the doctor can manipulate the thread to achieve the contoured, defined look that you desire.
The raw material will become absorbed completely by your body.
Another benefit is that PDO causes only minimal tissue trauma and reaction. Generally, the procedure takes less than an hour and the immediate results can last up to one year.
The results are long-lasting with no incision, minimal to no scarring and a very low risk of adverse reaction. With almost no downtime, this procedure is an amazing alternative to surgical options.
