HansBiomed, creator and distributor of MINT PDO threads, held an educational symposium for delegates who are beginners in thread procedures.
The event took place on October 12 at the JW Marriott Grosvenor House, London and was hosted by the MINT Education Board including aesthetic practitioners Dr Kam Lally, Dr Zunaid Alli, Dr Jeremy Isaac and Dr Chike Emeagi.
The symposium began with Dr Lally introducing MINT threads, the various products available in the portfolio and the suitable threads to use for facial indications, as well as announcing that the company will be launching a new cosmetical skincare line in 2023. Following this, Dr Isaac provided an in-depth talk on anatomy and patient assessment. The talk discussed different skin layers and the appropriate layer to place threads, the ageing process and how threads can help, as well as using threads in combination with fillers.
The second half of the symposium included some patient case studies using MINT threads, presented by Dr Emeagi. He showed videos of three different patient cases with various laxity concerns and discussed the techniques he used to achieve rejuvenated results. The final presentation looked into the complications and contraindications of using threads, with patient suitability being a key aspect.
A Q&A session proceeded, where delegates were able to ask the Board any questions concerning thread procedures.
Dr Lally commented, “The first MINT academic symposium was a resounding success. It was an event mainly aimed at beginners, but we welcomed practitioners at all levels. This created the perfect grounds for healthy discussion and an all-round comprehensive learning experience.”
