PDO threads have rapidly become a popular minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelift procedures and have given rise to the emerging cat eye, V-line, and snatched jawline trends. With its innovative patented technology in which the barbs are press-molded and configured in a 360-degree helical pattern, MINT™ PDO offers the most robust threads on the market. This revolutionary technology allows instant yet profound results while minimizing pain & trauma – allowing patients to benefit from a shorter recovery time and providing an alternative for those who may not be ready for surgery or request a non-surgical option.

Mint PDO thread lift  is a non surgical face lift treatment that tackles prominent signs of ageing. Without the use of any incisions or surgery, anchoring sutures are placed under the skin using a fine cannula to elevate the sagging tissue and lift problem areas. We use anaesthetic so that the procedure is not painful.

MINT™ is an absorbable polydioxanone (PDO) barbed suture indicated for use in soft tissue approximation. With a decade worth of safety track record in surgery, PDO is a safe raw material that has been used for orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery for wound closure. As a safe raw material that is completely absorbed by the body through hydrolysis, PDO causes minimal tissue reaction and tissue trauma.


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