Maintaining the integrity of your skin at an early age can be done with just a few threads.
MINT™ PDO are barb threads that reposition sagging tissue for a refreshed and contoured appearance. This minimally invasive treatment can be repeated as desired to delay the aging process and maintain your skin’s youth for a longer period of time.
Areas that can be treated with PDO threads include nasolabial folds, glabellar wrinkles, neck and forehead wrinkles, jowls and jawline.
The procedure takes about 30-45 minutes and its done in comfort of our office in Kennett Square under local anaesthesia. The results are seen immediately and last for several months.
Your face will be cleansed and and lidocaine will be injected to help with any discomfort. Once you’r numb, a small access hole will be made at the entry point to create the “tunnel” for the threading. After that is done a long, thin cannula that houses the lifting thread will use that entry point to go under the skin so that the thread is placed correctly. The cannula is then pulled out, which leaves the thread in place to engage the tissue.
This procedure results in a much more contoured appearance to the treated area and it will stimulate collagen production in the next several months.
The skin looks tighter and more youthful-looking. Because the threads are biodegradable, they dissolve within a few months. However, the collagen network maintains for several months.
