Refresh, Renew, and Rejuvenate with MINT™ PDO
Collagen and elastin are the vital proteins that make up the supporting structure of the skin and keep it looking firm and youthful. However, as you age, it takes a longer time for your body to produce them which contributes to sagging skin and wrinkles. Heavy nasolabial folds, deepened smile lines, jowls, sunken cheeks - all these features can make you appear older and more tired. Prevention is the best way to maintain your skin’s firmness and elasticity, but what can you do if you’re already experiencing the effects of aging?

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.

MINT™ PDO threads are designed with a unique patented technology that can help
enhance your features. 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 can help promote the stimulation of collagen and
neovascularization which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a
beautiful rejuvenation.


Common results that may be achieved with PDO threads include:
• Heart-shaped facial line
• Higher cheekbone contour
• Lifted nose with surgery 
• Exotic, cat eye contour
• Snatched, defined jawline
• Softer smile lines
• Softer eyebrows
• Smoother neck lines

Because MINT™ is a minimally invasive and nonsurgical procedure, the procedure takes an average of 1 hour and results can be seen immediately. Patients will experience minimal pain, minimal scarring, and results will improve over time as the swelling, redness, and bruising go down.

The body absorbs PDO threads in 6-8 months after insertion, but the results can last for up to one year as PDO can help stimulate collagen production and neovascularization in the skin. Results will vary depending on the degree of sagging, thickness of the skin, and the facial structure of the patient.

MINT™ threads are 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. Not only that, MINT™ is also backed by more than 6 years of published studies for its safety and isthe first and only PDO suture  in the US market to have received two FDA clearances.

After the procedure, you may immediately resume your daily activities. More intense activities such as exercise should be resumed after a week, but please consult with your provider beforehand.

The cost of PDO threads depend on the patient’s needs and anatomy. While prices vary according to the areas that need to be treated, they start anywhere from $700 - $4,500 on average.

Please schedule a consultation first to determine if you are an ideal candidate for MINT™ procedures. During the consultation, you should discuss what concerns you want to address and the look you desire so the provider can properly address the area of concern.

While one treatment may be enough for some, you may consider getting PDO threads another time. The threads dissolve completely, so you can get treated to enjoy the benefits of MINT™ all over again for an extended period.

Common side effects may include soreness, minor bruising, swelling and mild discomfort. If you experience any other complications or an extended period of the side effects, please consult with your provider. To avoid the risk of complications, we recommend that you verify your provider has received professional PDO thread training credentials.

While PDO threads are made of the same material, the manufacturing process of the thread itself varies from brand to brand. Conventional PDO threads cut the barbs from the integral core of the thread, which weakens it and makes it more prone to breakage. MINT™ uses an innovative patented technology to press-mold the barbs onto the surface of the thread to maintain its structural integrity.

A facelift is a great option for those with severe sagging skin and tissue who can invest in this long-term solution and time off to recover. The results of a facelift are drastic and can last up to ten years. In contrast, PDO threads can be a fantastic alternative for those who are looking to address sagging skin through a minimally invasive procedure without invasive surgery, and at a fraction of the cost of a facelift. The results are natural and instant with minimal downtime and trauma.
