MINT® PDO is a safe and effective thread that is used to pull and approximate skin sagging back into a desired position. PDO is FDA approved and MINT® PDO is currently being used in 14 countries worldwide. The procedure is simple and done through local anesthesia. Patients will experience minimal pain, minimal swelling, minimal scarring and a rapid recovery.
MINT® PDO threads are the latest innovation from South Korea. They have several distinct advantages over other threads. MINT® PDO is a heavy gauge barbed thread. The heavier gauge and patented barbs allow the threads to give more lifting and lasting hold than weaker threads. Like all PDO threads, it also promotes collagen in the treated areas and dissolves 6-9 month after insertion, with lifting effects lasting up to one year or more.
In a thread lift, threads are inserted underneath the skin to instantly and effectively lift sagging skin. The threads are mainly used on the face and neck, but can also be used to lift skin on the body. The thread lifting procedure does not involve surgery. It is a minimally invasive and very safe and effective in-office procedure with little downtime especially when performed by an experienced provider.
As we age, we lose volume in our face and our skin starts to sag. The result is a longer, more square and older-looking face. While Botox® is great for smoothing wrinkles that are formed with movement and dermal fillers are excellent at restoring facial volume and improving deep folds, there was still an unmet need in aesthetic facial rejuvenation.
Thread lift is a non-surgical technique to effectively lift sagging skin to restore the face’s natural and youthful V-shape and vitality. Although traditional facelift surgery is an excellent way to address sagging skin, it also carries with it a lot of expense and downtime.
Many people are also afraid to “go under the knife” due to health risks, cost, and un-naturally looking results. The thread lift is the perfect solution to address sagging skin without surgery that looks natural and is also effective and safe when performed properly. It’s quickly becoming the treatment of choice, especially for busy individuals who need to quickly resume their daily activities.
Benefits of Non-Surgical Face Lift
With MINT® PDO Threads
Instant lifting: People love the instant lift of sagging skin that takes years off the face and neck.
Natural results: Natural yet noticeable results can be achieved with the thread lift. There’s no worry of looking“ over-pulled” or “wind-blown” as with a surgical face lift.
Non-Surgical: Since the procedure doesn’t involve any cutting and incisions, it doesn’t leave any permanent scars like traditional facelift surgery.
Minimal downtime: Because the procedure is far less invasive than a surgical facelift, the downtime is very minimal. Most people are able to return to work soon after the procedure.
Collagen stimulation: The threads stimulate your own skin to gradually produce more collagen in the treatment areas over several months. Not only do you get the benefit of an instant lift, your skin also gets firmer and tighter over time!
Cost-effective: Thread lift is a very cost-effective way to achieve a more youthful appearance compared to other aesthetic procedures, like Ultherapy.
Safety: The thread lift procedure is very safe. In fact, it can be even safer than dermal fillers. Since the procedure is done under local anesthetic, it doesn’t carry the risk of general anesthesia used in a traditional surgical facelift.
