As we age, our skin suffers substantially. Loose skin creates sagging and bags that are difficult to cover. A face lift 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 face lift , you can dramatically improve your looks and reduce the signs of aging without surgery.
MINT PDO can reposition underlying tissues and smooth and soften facial skin. It produces immediate and longer-lasting results than treatments with dermal fillers and BOTOX®. As another anti-aging option for a tailored and customized facial rejuvenation, MINT PDO procedures fill the gap between surgery and injectables.
Why Choose MINT PDO?
MINT™ PDO is the latest news in Korean beauty that can deliver natural results without invasive surgery.
MINT™ stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread. 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. Treatments involve minimal pain and minimal downtime, and the results can be seen immediately, so you can look and feel your best in no time.
MINT™ PDO results are immediate. You do not have to wait weeks and months to see your results.
WHAT does this treatment do?
MINT™ PDO thread is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia nor big incisions. 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.
Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO (polydioxanone) 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
What happens on the day?: The procedure takes an average of one hour but can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. Patients will see immediate results after the procedure that can last up to 1 year.
Is it right for me?: 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.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.

How long will results 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. The thread lift’s lasting power depends on the age of the patient and how much sagging was corrected.
To further enhance and extend the results of your initial thread lift, additional “booster” threads can be inserted at a later time. The results of the thread lifting can also be prolonged with other skin tightening treatments, such as the VZet (HIFU, high-intensity focused ultrasound), Ulthera or RF Microneedling (Secret RF). The thread lift procedure can be repeated in the same or other areas of your face, neck and even body as many times as desired to maintain and provide further results.
Mint PDO threads can address a wide variety of concerns and achieve aesthetic enhancements including:
