Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread
Collagen and elastin are important proteins that make up the skin’s support structure and maintain elasticity and youthfulness. However, as you age, your body takes longer to produce, so your skin sags and wrinkles. Thick nasolabial folds, deep smile lines, chin, and sunken cheeks all make you look older and tired. Prevention is the best way to keep your skin supple and supple.
What is MINT™
MINT™ PDO is an absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) barbed suture indicated for use in soft tissue approximation. It is a minimally invasive procedure that helps achieve a naturally youthful and defined look.

• Long-lasting results
• Low risk of adverse reaction
• Low to no downtime

• Excellent alternative to surgical options
How do I know if I am a good candidate for MINT™ PDO?
For best results, the ideal skin layer should not be too thin, too thick, or uneven. The skin should be thin enough for the MINT™ PDO to be visible and thick enough that the threads are not too close to the skin surface.
One way to test this before consulting our doctor is to lie down and see if you like the shape of your face. This is because it can be a good indicator of how effective MINT™ PDO is.
Finally, check with our doctor if you are the best candidate for the MINT™ procedure.

The procedure takes an average of one hour but can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes. Patients will see immediate results after the procedure that can last up to 1 year.
How safe is it?
MINT™ threads are made from complex sugar polydioxanone (PDO), a safe suture material used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for over 30 years. In addition, MINT™ is backed by over 6 years of published safety studies on and is the first and only PDO suture to receive dual FDA approval in the US market.
MINT ™ PDO threading is a minimally invasive surgery that does not require the patient to undergo general anesthesia or a large incision. There are small thorns that are strategically placed and shaped around the thread. When the suture is inserted into the skin, the thorns are fixed to the loose skin and the suture can be manipulated for a naturally youthful and clear look. In addition to improving the appearance of loose skin, PDO (Polydioxanone) promotes collagen stimulation and angiogenesis, improving skin elasticity, texture, fine lines and volume for timeless rejuvenation. increase.
MINT ™ is an absorbent thorny polydioxanone (PDO) suture that has been shown for use in soft tissue approximation. With decades of surgical safety records, PDO is a safe ingredient used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for wound closure. PDO is a safe ingredient that is completely absorbed by the body by hydrolysis, causing minimal tissue reaction and tissue trauma. In addition, MINT ™ is the first and only PDO suture to receive two FDA approvals in the US market, backed by more than 6 years of clinical trials for its efficacy and safety.
Unlike traditional sutures, which cut the spines from the integral core of the thread, MINT ™ is made with an innovative patented technology that compresses the spines onto the surface of the thread to maintain structural integrity. Arranged in a 360 degree spiral, the barbs are designed to maximize tensile and anchor strength and secure to soft tissue 3D structures for effective and high performance approximation.
