As we age, we lose the ability to produce collagen and elastin which help support the structure of our skin to keep it firm and youthful. This causes the skin to sag and form wrinkles. Sagging jowls, sunken cheeks, heavy nasolabial folds, and deepened smile lines are all features that can make us look older and tired.
If you are looking to reverse and prevent these signs of aging and sagging skin, but are not ready for a surgical procedure, Minimally Invasive Non-Surgical Threads (MINT) PDO might be the right solution for you!
PDO threads have become an extremely popular alternative aesthetic solution to traditional surgical facelift procedures. With the innovative patented technology, MINT PDO offers the most advanced and robust threads on the market. The revolutionary technology provides instant yet amazing results while minimizing pain and trauma to the patient. PDO or polydioxanone threads are biodegradable sutures that were specifically designed for safe use to lift sagging skin layers. With threads, patients experience minimal pain and downtime, while also offering an alternative to those who may not be interested or ready for a surgical option.
Our team at Aesthetic Medicine is so excited to now offer an instant, non-surgical, quality, and long-lasting solution with MINT PDO!
MINT threads are made from a complex sugar polydioxanone (or PDO) which is a safe suture material that has been used for over 30 years in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries. In addition, MINT is backed by over 6 years of published studies for being safe and is the first and ONLY PDO suture in the US to have two FDA clearances.
On average MINT PDO threads take an hour but can range from 30 or 45 minutes to 90 minutes depending on the area(s) being treated. While individual results will vary, patients will see immediate results that can last up to 1+ years.
