Mint PDO Threads

Mint PDO Threads

Timeless Rejuvenation with MINT™ PDO Thread lift.

MINT™ stands for Minimal Invasive Nonsurgical Threads and is commonly known as the Thread Face Lift. It is a unique absorbable thread designed to approximate and fixate sagging tissues. The thread is made from a complex sugar polydioxanone or PDO – a safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. This is a quick and minimally invasive procedure designed to elevate the central face and redefine the contours with minimal downtime, revealing a fresher, younger looking you. It is especially beneficial for elevating the Brows, Nasolabial Folds, Midface, Marionettes, Jowls and Neck and Jawline.

MINT™ uses innovative patented technology in which barbs are configured in a 360-degree helical pattern.  These tiny barbs or cogs, are strategically placed and molded all around the thread. Once the threads are placed into the skin, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look.

Collagen and elastin are the vital proteins that make up the supporting structure of the skin and keep it looking firm and youthful. However, as you age, it takes a longer time for your body to produce them which contributes to sagging skin and wrinkles. Heavy nasolabial folds, deepened smile lines, jowling, sunken cheeks – all these features can make you appear older and more tired. Prevention is the best way to maintain your skin’s firmness and elasticity, but what can you do if you’re already experiencing the effects of aging? This treatment can be customized and tailored to each individual, looking to combat signs of skin laxity and aging.

How does it work

MINT™ uses innovative patented technology in which barbs are configured in a 360-degree helical pattern.  These tiny barbs or cogs, are strategically placed and molded all around the thread. Once the threads are placed into the skin, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look.

Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

For the most optimal results, the ideal candidate should have a skin layer that is not too thin or too thick and not extremely uneven. The skin should be thin enough so MINT™ PDO can make a visible difference and thick enough so the threads are not too close to the surface of the skin. One way to check before a consultation with your provider is to lay down on your back and see if you like the way your face looks, as it can be a good indicator of how effective MINT™ PDO can be. Lastly, please consult with the physician if you are an optimal candidate for MINT™ Procedure
