As we age, our skin suffers substantially. Loose skin creates sagging and bags that are difficult to cover. A face lift is the only way to permanently rid yourself of these issues, but going under the knife is a daunting thought for most people. MINT PDO provides a revolutionary type of facial rejuvenation without surgery. Commonly known as the thread face lift, you can dramatically improve your looks and reduce the signs of aging without surgery.
MINT PDO can reposition underlying tissues and smooth and soften facial skin. It produces immediate and longer-lasting results than treatments with dermal fillers and BOTOX®. As another anti-aging option for a tailored and customized facial rejuvenation, MINT PDO procedures fill the gap between surgery and injectables.

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. Patients will see immediate results after the procedure that can last up to 1 year. 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.
Is there anything I need to prepare before the procedure?
At least one week prior to the procedure, you should be off blood thinners such as aspirin, ibuprofen, fish oil, vitamin E, alcohol, etc. as well as immunosuppressants. MINT PDO should not be performed on those who have active skin infections or inflammation.
What kind of aftercare will I need to do?
You can apply an ice pack on the treated area immediately after the surgery if necessary. Avoid making exaggerated facial movements and things that require you to open your mouth wide (ex. dental surgery). Don’t massage or apply excessive force to your face and always make sure that you sleep with proper posture on your back. Avoid close exposure to heat, such as tanning and laser treatments, as it will enable the threads to break down at a faster rate than expected.
