Mint PDO Thread

Refresh, Renew, and Rejuvenate with MINT™ PDO

Collagen and elastin are the vital proteins that make up the supporting structure of the skin and keep it looking firm and youthful. However, as you age, it takes a longer time for your body to produce them which contributes to sagging skin and wrinkles. Heavy nasolabial folds, deepened smile lines, jowls, sunken cheeks – all these features can make you appear older and more tired.

Common results that may be achieved with PDO threads include:

• Heart-shaped facial line

• Higher cheekbone contour

• Exotic, cat eye contour

• Snatched, defined jawline

• Softer smile lines

• Higher nose bridge and nose tip (Non-surgical rhinoplasty)

• Smoother neck lines

• Perkier breast, lifted butt and tighter loose, saggy skin in the body

• Stimulated collagen to help create volume for your face and body.

Discover MINT™

MINT™ stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread. It is a unique absorbable thread designed to approximate and fixate sagging tissues. The thread is 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. Treatments involve minimal pain and minimal downtime, and the results can be seen immediately, so you can look and feel your best in no time. It’s time to stop worrying and start rejuvenating!
