Pdo threads are a game changer? Want rapid results? Say bye bye to old school ways, get a eyebrow lift, check, neck and jaw line today!! PDO threads are for you!
We love threads, because they are a unique facial rejuvenation procedure that lifts and contours the skin without the need for surgery or general anesthesia – and no scarring! It’s a simple in-office procedure that is often called a “one-hour” or “lunchtime” facelift.
Results are typically immediate and generally last for a year or more. Along with an immediate effect, you will continue to see a tightening of the treated area as the threads dissolve and encourage the body to generate collagen.
Thread lifts are perfect for men and women with moderate loose and sagging skin in the face and neck area.
Each patient is different. We make sure you get the best results, that typically can last to 12-24 months.
What Are PDO Threads
MINT™ is an absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) barbed suture indicated for use in soft tissue approximation. With a decade worth of safety track record in surgery, PDO is a safe raw material that has been used for orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for wound closure. As a safe raw material that is completely absorbed by the body through hydrolysis, PDO causes minimal tissue reaction and tissue trauma.
Not only that, MINT™ is also backed by more than 6 years of clinical studies for its efficacy and safety and is the first and only PDO suture in the US market to have received two FDA clearances.
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. 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.
Unlike conventional sutures that cut the barbs from the integral core of the thread, MINT™ is manufactured through an innovative patented technology where the barbs are press-molded on the surface of the thread to maintain its structural integrity. The 360 degrees of helically positioned barbs are designed to maximize tensile and anchoring strength in order to securely anchor onto the 3D structure of the soft tissue for effective and powerful approximation.
