Thе Minimal Invаѕіvе Nonsurgical Thrеаd (MINT®) Lift іѕ a nоnѕurgісаl fасеlіft реrfоrmеd on the mіd-fасе, lower face, neck, jawline, or forehead.

Precautions Аftеr Thе Рrосеdurе

Apply an ice pack two days after the procedure. Apply a warm massage three days after the procedure to manage the swelling. Four days after the procedure, keep your head higher than the level of your heart. This will help decrease the swelling.

Smoking, drinking, sauna, and active exercise are strictly prohibited for the three weeks after the procedure. We also advise you to avoid exaggerated facial expressions such as opening the mouth wide to eat a large burger, smiling from ear to ear, or stretching the jaw. These movements may affect how the threads settle and get incorporated into your skin.
