PDO Thread Lift Procedure
Our thread lift procedures use two types of threads: smooth threads and patented 360-degree helical barbed sutures (threads). The smooth threads work by stimulating collagen regrowth and maintaining lasting results. They are not limited to a particular body area. Smooth threads can be used for scars, general facial collagen, lips, neck, buttock, and abdominal areas. The patented helical barbed suture is used for additional lifting, and often 4-5 sutures (per side) are needed to “lift” an area.
Are You a Good Candidate For A Thread Lift?
MINT™ PDO procedures are safe for Formula Wellness patients who maintain healthy lifestyles and maintain their weight for at least three months. The qualities can include the following:
- Maintained their weight for at least three months
- Visible signs of mild aging
- Wrinkles and lines on the forehead
- Keeping healthy lifestyles
After the procedure, patients may return to their daily lives immediately, but they should consult with their physicians before resuming exercise and other intense activities. We recommend avoiding showering until the next day and preventing excessive smiling, laughing, or coughing as much as possible.
Patients will see immediate results after the procedure that can last up to 1 year and sometimes longer. MINT PDO has a stronger lifting power and better specification designs than other PDO threads and addresses signs of aging caused by gravity, such as sagging skin.
