MINT™ PDO Threads
Sagging skin got you down? Collagen and Elastin are the vital proteins that make up the supporting structure of the skin and keep it looking firm and youthful.
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, and sunken cheeks – all these features can make you appear older and more tired.
- Non Surgical

Frequently Asked Questions
MINT™ stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread. It is an FDA-approved absorbable thread that is placed to lift soft, sagging tissue of the face and neck to a desired position. The thread is made of complex sugar polydioxanone, or PDO, a safe suture material that has been used for orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. The thread is placed and lifts the tissues and eventually dissolves. The effects of collagen and elastin production remains to produce a persistent lifting effect.
Your aesthetic specialist will perform a thorough consultation to determine the optimal placement of MINT PDO threads to get the look you want. A small needle is used to inject numbing medicine around the thread placement sites prior to the procedure and may feel like a pinch. The threads are then placed and may be accompanied by a sensation of “tugging.” Most procedures take 30-60 minutes.
Absolutely! Just more youthful and refreshed.
There is no significant downtime. However, we do advise patients to limit certain activities post MINT™ PDO thread placement, to include: strenuous exercise for 2 weeks, dental procedures for 4 weeks, laser treatments for 10 weeks.
The most common side effects reported include redness, swelling at site of numbing medicine injection/site of MINT™ PDO thread insertion. Mild bruising and bleeding could also occur.
