How do MINT™ PDO threads work?
MINT™ is a safe, absorbable suture designed to approximate sagging tissue. Once the thread is inserted into the skin, the tiny barbs on the thread anchors onto sagging tissue and are then maneuvered to contour and define your natural features. The thread dissolves in 6-8 months and can stimulate your body to produce its own collagen to further improve the appearance of your skin.
How safe is it?
MINT™ threads are made from a complex sugar polydioxanone or PDO - a safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. Not only that, MINT™ is also backed by more than 6 years of published studies for its safety and is the first PDO suture in the US market to have received three FDA clearances.
When can I see results?
The procedure takes an average of 1 hour, and results can be seen immediately. Patients will experience minimal pain, minimal scarring, and minimal downtime compared to surgical procedures, and results will improve over time as the swelling, redness, and bruising go down.
How long is the downtime?
After the procedure, you may immediately resume your daily activities. More intense activities such as exercise should be resumed after a week, but please consult with your provider beforehand.
Am I a good candidate for PDO threads?
Please schedule a consultation first to determine if you are an ideal candidate for MINT™ procedures. During the consultation, you should discuss what concerns you want to address and the look you desire so the provider can properly address the area of concern.
Can I get PDO threads more than once?
While one treatment may be enough for some, you may consider getting PDO threads another time. The threads dissolve completely in 6 to 8 months, so the treatment can be repeated as desired after consulting with your practitioner.
Can I get other treatments in combination with PDO threads?
Yes! MINT™ is compatible with many other procedures, so you can take advantage of all the best things each treatment has to offer for synergistic effects. Target wrinkles with neuromodulators, restore volume with dermal fillers, address skin texture with laser treatments, and take care of sagging skin with MINT™.
Are there any side effects?
Common side effects may include soreness, minor bruising, swelling and mild discomfort. If you experience any other complications or an extended period of the side effects, please consult with your provider. To avoid the risk of complications, we recommend that you verify your provider has received professional PDO thread training credentials.
How long will results last?
The body absorbs PDO threads in 6-8 months after insertion, but the results can last for up to one year as the threads can help stimulate collagen production in the skin. However, results will vary depending on the degree of sagging, thickness of the skin, and the facial structure of the patient.
How painful is the procedure?
Providers will normally administer local anesthesia prior to the procedure. You may feel pressure during the insertion of the threads and/or hear the "clicking" sound of the threads, but you should feel minimal pain during the procedure.
