7 Things About MINT PDO Most Plastic Surgeons Don’t Know
Here are the 7 Things About MINT PDO that Most Plastic Surgeons don’t know:
Number One: How the MINT PDO procedure works
MINT PDO thread is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anaesthesia nor big incisions. It is introduced into the deeper layers of the skin, and the helically moulded barbs on the MINT PDO anchors onto the sagging tissue, and the thread is lifted upwards to achieve an instant, rejuvenating & contouring effect.
Number Two: Who can be a good candidate for MINT PDO
MINT PDO procedures are not for everyone. The procedures are safe for adults who keep up with healthy lifestyles and have maintained their weight for at least three months.
Number Three: How long do the results last
Patients will see immediate results after the procedure that can last up to 1 year. Despite being relatively new to the US market, MINT has a stronger lifting power and better specification designs in comparison to other PDO threads. By restoring the patient’s lost youth with a sharper jawline and V-line, MINT procedures address signs of ageing caused by gravity, such as sagging skin.
Number Four: Risks or side effects associated with MINT
Although minimal, side effects may include but are not limited to bruising, dimpling, and swelling.
Number Five: Recovery time for the MINT procedure
After the procedure, patients may immediately return to daily lives, but they should consult with their physicians before resuming exercise and other intense activities.
Number Six: Areas that can be treated with MINT PDO
MINT PDO is available for any part of the face where loose skin is causing you grief, but most patients opt for a lower face procedure to improve the appearance of sagging skin in the cheeks, neck and jawline that cannot be effectively targeted with botox and fillers. Areas such as Eyebrow lifting, Nasolabial, Neck and Mid-face can be treated with MINT Easy and MINT Fine PDO Threads
Number Seven: Unique benefits of MINT PDO
MINT PDO procedure promotes collagen stimulation and neovascularization to improve skin texture, fine lines, and elasticity. As a result, after about 6-8 months when MINT PDO is completely absorbed by the body into water and carbon dioxide, the results will last for about 3-6 months more due to the collagen stimulation. With minimal scarring and downtime, it is an amazing option for patients looking into achieving instant and natural-looking results.
