PDO Threads

Refresh, Renew, and Rejuvenate with MINT™ PDO at 419 Beauty Bar in Defiance, OH. In the realm of beauty and skincare, maintaining the youthfulness and elasticity of your skin is paramount. Collagen and elastin, the fundamental building blocks of your skin's structure, play a crucial role in keeping your skin firm and youthful. However, the natural aging process can slow down their production, leading to visible signs of aging such as sagging skin, wrinkles, deepened smile lines, and sunken cheeks. These can add years to your appearance, making you look older and fatigued. If you're seeking to counteract these effects and yearn for a solution that doesn't involve invasive surgery, MINT™ PDO presents an innovative alternative.

MINT™ PDO is at the forefront of Korean beauty advancements, offering a minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment that delivers natural and immediate results. MINT™ stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread, a unique, absorbable thread that redefines and supports sagging tissues for a more youthful look. Made from polydioxanone (PDO) – a complex sugar and a reliable suture material used in medical procedures for over three decades – MINT™ PDO is safe and effective. The procedure is swift, averaging just an hour, with minimal discomfort and downtime, allowing you to swiftly return to your daily activities, looking and feeling rejuvenated.

The procedure harnesses the innovative technology of PDO to stimulate the body's natural collagen production long after the threads have been absorbed. This ongoing stimulation helps improve skin elasticity, texture, and volume, enhancing your overall complexion and reversing signs of aging. The threads are crafted with tiny barbs that latch onto sagging skin, which can then be adjusted to redefine and lift the face for a naturally youthful silhouette.

The results of MINT™ PDO are immediate and can persist for up to 12 months, with the body fully absorbing the thread in about 6-8 months. Its minimally invasive nature ensures minimal trauma and scarring, making it an ideal choice for those looking to achieve significant anti-aging effects without the drawbacks of traditional surgery.

Whether you're aiming for a heart-shaped facial line, higher cheekbones, an exotic cat eye contour, a defined jawline, or simply want to soften smile lines and smooth neck lines, MINT™ PDO offers a versatile range of aesthetic improvements. This treatment stands as a testament to the possibilities of modern beauty care, where innovative technology meets personalized care to offer remarkable results. Say goodbye to the worries of aging skin and welcome a future where you look as youthful and vibrant as you feel, only at 419 Beauty Bar.

PDO Threads FAQs

When can I see results?

Because MINT™ is a minimally invasive and nonsurgical procedure, the procedure takes an average of 1 hour and results can be seen immediately. Patients will experience minimal pain, minimal scarring, and results will improve over time as the swelling, redness, and bruising go down. 

How long will my results last?

The body absorbs PDO threads in 6-8 months after insertion, but the results can last for up to one year as PDO can help stimulate collagen production and neovascularization in the skin. Results will vary depending on the degree of sagging, thickness of the skin, and the facial structure of the patient.

How safe is it?

MINT™ threads are 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. Not only that, MINT™ is also backed by more than 6 years of published studies for its efficacy and safety and is the first and only PDO suture in the US market to have received two FDA clearances. 

How long is the downtime?

After the procedure, you may immediately resume your daily activities. More intense activities such as exercise should be resumed after a week, but please consult with your provider beforehand.

How much does it cost?

The cost of PDO threads depend on the patient’s needs and anatomy. While prices vary according to the areas that need to be treated, they start anywhere from $450-$800 on average.

Am I a good candidate for PDO threads?

Please schedule a consultation first to determine if you are an ideal candidate for MINT™ procedures. During the consultation, you should discuss what concerns you want to address and the look you desire so the provider can properly address the area of concern. 

Can I get PDO threads more than once?

While one treatment may be enough for some, you may consider getting PDO threads another time. The threads dissolve completely, so you can get treated to enjoy the benefits of MINT™ all over again for an extended period.

Can I get other treatments in combination with PDO threads?

Yes! MINT™ is compatible with many other procedures, so you can take advantage of all the best things each treatment has to offer for synergistic effects. Target wrinkles with neuromodulators, restore volume with dermal fillers, address skin texture with laser treatments, and take care of sagging skin with MINT™.

Are there any side effects?

Common side effects may include soreness, minor bruising, swelling and mild discomfort. If you experience any other complications or an extended period of the side effects, please consult with your provider. To avoid the risk of complications, we recommend that you verify your provider has received professional PDO thread training credentials.

Are all PDO threads the same?

While PDO threads are made of the same material, the manufacturing process of the thread itself varies from brand to brand. Conventional PDO threads cut the barbs from the integral core of the thread, which weakens it and makes it more prone to breakage. MINT™ uses an innovative patented technology to press-mold the barbs onto the surface of the thread to maintain its structural integrity.

What’s the Difference Between Face Lifts and PDO Threads?

A facelift is a great option for those with severe sagging skin and tissue who can invest in this long-term solution and time off to recover. The results of a facelift are drastic and can last up to ten years. In contrast, PDO threads can be a fantastic alternative for those who are looking to address sagging skin through a minimally invasive procedure without invasive surgery, and at a fraction of the cost of a facelift. The results are natural and instant with minimal downtime and trauma.
