MINT PDO Thread Lift
MINT (Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread) PDO is a safe and effective thread lifting procedure that instantly lifts sagging skin and approximate soft tissues, giving a fresh and revitalized look. Thread lifting is not a new process, but the MINT lift is the only FDA-approved PDO thread lift on the market and is currently being used throughout Korea and in 14 other countries worldwide. The procedure is quick, simple, and performed under local anesthesia. Patients will experience minimal pain, minimal scarring, and a rapid recovery.
Instead of the normal barbs, MINT uses sterile threads that have bi-directional molded barbs, helically positioned and shaped like an arrow, to hook on the skin tissue more effectively, resulting in a longer-lasting, 3-dimensional lift. Depending on the patient’s condition, there are 3 options of MINT thread to choose from.
MINT PDO can benefit:
- Those looking for a non-invasive procedure providing instant and noticeable lifting results.
- People wishing to improve sagging cheeks, deep nasolabial folds, and undefined jaw line.
- People looking to achieve a sharper, V-line jaw profile.
How long do the results last?
Most patients will see immediate results following treatment. Due to the molded, arrow-shaped barbs which have a larger surface area, the MINT thread lifting procedure gives a stronger, longer-lasting finish compared to other PDO thread techniques and results can last up to 2 years.
30 to 45 minutes
No stitch removal
Recovery period: 5 days
Anesthesia: Local assisted with sedation
What is the recovery time for the MINT procedure?
Patients can return to their normal daily routine immediately after the procedure. However, there are several precautions that patients need to take:
- After treatment, it is normal for patients to experience some swelling, redness, mild pain, and bruising, but this is a temporary phenomenon that will gradually disappear.
1 to 3 weeks after treatment, patients may feel tugging, tightening, pain, irritation, and stiffness. During this period, we recommend patients do not open their mouth widely, laugh loudly, make severe facial expressions, or bend the head when lying down.
- Smoking, drinking, excessive exercise, hot saunas, acupuncture massage, and skin massage should be avoided for at least a month.
- Some patients may not notice much change in the early stages immediately following the procedure as the thread is absorbed, but the skin may become tense and elastic after about 3 weeks.
The skin may appear bumpy right after the treatment, but this is temporary and will reduce over 2-3 weeks.
On occasion the threads may stick out of the skin. If so, patients must visit the hospital.
Are there any risks or side effects associated with MINT?
Side effects are minimal, and may include bruising, dimpling and swelling.
