It uses absorbable monofilament sutures (i.e. threads) that are made out of complex sugar polydioxanone (PDO). These sutures reduce loose, sagging skin and produce a more youthful appearance.

How Does a PDO Thread Lift Work?

PDO threads reduce the appearance of wrinkles by increasing the skin’s production of collagen, which is a protection that gives your skin its elasticity and structure. During the press-molding process, the barbs are positioned in a 360° helical pattern around the MINT™ PDO threads. This design allows the PDO thread to better anchor onto the 3D structures of the skin for powerful repositioning effects. The barbs of MINT™ PDO threads are press molded onto the surface of the thread to maintain its structural integrity over a longer period of time. Here’s a step-by-step process of how the treatment works:

  1. A local anesthetic is applied to the treatment area.
  2. The PDO threads are inserted underneath the skin’s surface via a cannula. Once the thread is inserted into the skin, the tiny barbs on the thread anchor onto sagging tissue and are maneuvered to contour and define your face’s natural features.
  3. The PDO threads are molded into place.
  4. The thread dissolves in six to eight months and can stimulate your body’s production of collagen to further improve your skin’s appearance.
