MINT PDO THREADS
MINT PDO is FDA approved 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 PDO thread is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia nor big incisions. It is introduced into the deeper layers of the skin, and the helically molded barbs on the MINT PDO anchors onto the sagging tissue, and the thread is lifted upwards to achieve an instant, rejuvenating & contouring effect. The procedure takes approximately 1hr to perform and produces instant results.
PDO stands for Polydioxanone which is biodegradable and stimulates the activation of collagen production. Mint PDA threads have 3D helical barbs provide maximum anchoring and tensile strength by fixing and supporting the skin tissue in all directions. MINT PDO. threads are dissolvable by hydrolysis and do not stay in the body.
BROW LIFT / FOXEYE
PDO threads can be placed in the brow area. Anywhere from 2-4 threads can be placed on each side of the brow to achieve a brow life of fox eye look that cannot be accomplished with botox alone. The brow lift does not replace the use of botox to reduce forehead wrinkles however it does create a nice lift in the brows that an reduce excessive skin that leads to heaviness in the upper eyelid.
JOWL / MIDFACE LIFT
One of the most practical applications of the Mint PDO thread-lift is the non surgical facelift. This can be done by placing multiple threads in the jowl area and anchoring them just behind the top of the ear to create significant lift and reduce the sagging in the mid and lower face heaviness which occurs with age. This mid-face lift can also reduce the appearance and depth of nasolabial folds and marionette lines in addition to accentuating the jawline.
NECK LIFT / JAW DEFINE
In addition to a mid-face lift, threads can be applied just above and underneath the jawline and with tension can pull the skin back towards the ears to achieve a much more defined jawline and tighter upper neck profile. As many as 2-3 threads an be placed above and below the jawline to achieve this affect. In some cases only 1 thread above and 1 thread below the jawline is enough to create the desired affect.
