As we age, our skin suffers substantially. Loose skin creates sagging and bags that are difficult to cover. A facelift is the only way to permanently rid yourself of these issues, but going under the knife is a daunting thought for most people. MINT PDO provides a revolutionary type of facial rejuvenation without surgery. Commonly known as the thread facelift, you can dramatically improve your looks and reduce the signs of aging without surgery.
MINT PDO is a safe & effective absorbable suture made from a biocompatible material called PDO, polydioxanone. Starting 2004, PDO’s use has evolved so that it is applied for minimally invasive procedure such as for soft tissue approximation in MINT PDO’s procedures. Additionally, MINT PDO’s safety is further validated from its 510(k) clearance from the FDA and is currently being used in 14 other countries worldwide.
MINT PDO is used to pull and approximate soft tissues of the sagging skin to a desired position. MINT’s bi-directional and helically positioned barbs strongly anchor onto the soft tissue and then approximate it to the desired position. The procedure is simple and done through local anesthesia. Patients will experience minimal pain, minimal scarring, and a rapid recovery.

MINT Fine (PDO Non-Surgical Threads) 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. One of the most attractive benefits of this procedure is the cost.
