The MINT PDO thread lift is FDA approved and the perfect solution to address age-related changes that restore the face’s youthful contour without surgery! It is minimally invasive, safe and, relatively painless procedure with little downtime. PDO threads are made from a well-tolerated material used in absorbable sutures and inserted under the skin to instantly lift and tighten sagging areas. They use a heavy gauge barb with a unique 360-degree pattern around the thread that is designed to hold the tissue from all directions and create a more dramatic lifting effect.
PDO threads are most commonly used on the face and neck but can also be used to lift skin on the body. They are durable but temporary and, stimulate the natural production of collagen so that patients get the benefit of an instant lift as well as long-term improvement. Results are natural yet noticeable so there is no worry of looking over-pulled” or “wind-blown” as with a surgical face lift. The best candidates for thread lifting are men and women 30-60+ with relatively good skin tone. The most commonly treated areas are the eyebrows, nasolabial fold and smile lines of the mid-face, jowls and jawline of the lower face, marionette lines and, chin and neck.
