What are PDO Threads?


PDO refers to polydioxanone, a polymer used in medical sutures. In a thread lift procedure, PDO threads are embedded just beneath the surface of the skin with a cannula – the same flexible tool used to inject filler. The introduction of the threads to the skin causes kick starts collagen production in the area which leads to increased volume and firmness over time.



PDO threads have a high safety profile, complete absorption and minimal tissue reaction. The PDO thread generates tensing fibrosis in the surrounding tissue. The risk for scarring is absent when inserted correctly.


The effects of a thread lift are visible immediately and improve over several months. Results are not permanent but can last for up to two years. Downtime is minimal with PDO thread treatment and produces even better results when combined with other volumizing procedures.







How long does the MINT™ PDO procedure take?


The procedure takes an average of one hour but can take anywhere between 45 minutes to 90 minutes.  We recommend patients to consult with their providers prior to the procedure day to discuss the look they desire and the results they can expect.

Testimonials from our MINT™ PDO Patients

"100% I would recommend it. I think it’s been a remarkable experience for me, and I would say that doing a little research to find out what areas could most impact that particular person’s face is paramount. You need to know what your expectations are and have real expectations. But I would definitely encourage anyone who’s interested"  - Heather H.


"It was actually so much less invasive or intense than I thought it would be. There were times that I almost fell asleep during some of the procedure. It honestly just has astounded me. I couldn't be happier." - Sherri W. 

What if I have other procedures I have done or want to get done?

MINT™ PDO is a great procedure to get in conjunction with other treatments such as lasers, PRP, injectables, BOTOX®, and fillers. The threads can be used to target sagging skin and fillers can be utilized for deep lines to create an overall youthful appearance to the face. 

Ask your provider to learn more about treatment combinations to maximize the effects of MINT™ PDO.
