MINT PDO Thread Face Lift Treatment

Skin ageing is a fact of life; everyone will go through it sooner or later. But did you know there’s a new treatment that can take years off your face in just minutes, and without the need to go under the knife?

MINT PDO Threads provide a revolutionary type of facial rejuvenation that can dramatically improve your looks and reduce the signs of ageing without surgery.

What is MINT PDO Thread Lift?

MINT stands for Minimal Invasive Nonsurgical Threads and is commonly known as the Thread Face Lift. It is a minimally invasive alternative to surgery, that serves to make your face look younger and brighter without the need for cutting away the skin.

In a thread lift, threads are inserted underneath the skin to lift sagging skin instantly and effectively. The threads are mainly used on the face and the neck, but can also be used to lift skin on the body.

The thread lifting procedure is a minimally invasive, safe and effective procedure with little downtime – especially when performed by an experienced practitioner such as Dr Olfa.

What are MINT PDO Threads?

MINT PDO threads are the latest innovation from South Korea. They consist of a dissolvable suture made from a complex sugar called PDO (polydioxanone), which has been used in biomedical and pharmaceutical applications for many years because of its extremely safe profile.

This material is non-allergic and non-antigenic and is also completely biodegradable, meaning the body completely absorbs the PDO material over time.

The MINT PDO threads come in varies sizes, shapes and thicknesses. They are also FDA approved and are one of the preferred PDO threads because of their stronger lifting power compared to other threads.

Knowing how to use them correctly requires advanced skills to use them effectively and safely.

MINT PDO Thread Lift FAQs

  • How Does The MINT PDO Thread Lift Procedure Work?

Before the treatment, a strong topical numbing cream is applied. After 30 minutes the treatment area is thoroughly cleansed and prepped. A local anaesthetic is injected into all the areas where the threads will be placed, so the patient doesn’t feel any pain during the thread insertions.

The MINT PDO threads are inserted underneath the skin in the predetermined areas and then lifted upwards to achieve an instant, rejuvenating & contouring effect.
