MINT – Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Threads

PDO Threads are a minimally invasive alternate to surgical facelift procedures.

This technology allows instant yet profound results while minimizing pain & trauma – allowing patients to benefit from a shorter recovery time and providing an alternative for those who may not be ready for surgery or request a non-surgical option.
This Treatment is charged per area. Areas we offer are nasolabial folds, jowls, neck, midface life and coming soon, a brow lift.

How does it work?

There are tiny barbs 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. 

How long does the MINT PDO Thread lift result last?

The MINT PDO threads will fully dissolve in 6-9 months. During that time, new collagen will also form in the treatment areas, making the results of the threads last for a year or longer, depending on the patient’s skin condition and age.

Do you need general anesthesia for Mint PDO thread?

MINT™ PDO thread is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia nor big incisions for your patients. There are tiny barbs strategically placed and molded all around the thread.

What are the threads made of & is it safe?

MINT™ threads are 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. Not only that, MINT™ is also backed by more than 6 years of published studies for its safety and is the first and only PDO suture in the US market to have received dual FDA clearances. 

How do I know if I am a good candidate for threads?

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. 

What if I have other procedures I have done or want to get done?

MINT™ PDO is a great procedure to get in conjunction with other treatments such as lasers, PRP, injectables, BOTOX®, and fillers. The threads can be used to target sagging skin and fillers can be utilized for deep lines to create an overall youthful appearance to the face.

What is the downtime if any?

Swelling and bruising may last up to a week. For 24 hours no makeup, no vigorous, exercise, no straining.
