Not everyone displaying the telltale signs of aging necessarily needs or wants a surgical facelift to regain a more youthful appearance. Fortunately, there are other options available. One of our favorites in Northern Kentucky and the greater Cincinnati area is a minimally invasive treatment that’s producing amazing rejuvenating results – MINT™ PDO threads. MINT stands for “minimally invasive nonsurgical thread,” while PDO refers to “polydioxanone” (the synthetic material the threads are made of. This treatment has gained popularity in recent years and has rapidly become a sought-after alternative to a surgical facelift.
But threads aren’t just some trend that’s popped up overnight. They’ve actually been used successfully for decades for other medical purposes, such as suturing surgical incisions or treating certain gynecological disorders. More recently, MINT PDO threads have been perfected to offer safe, effective lifting and tightening of the skin for people displaying mild to moderate signs of aging.

How does treatment with PDO threads work?When injected into the skin by a trained professional, like the ones at Skin Esteem, PDO threads result in an instant lifting and tightening of the skin by way of strategically placed barbed threads. These hair-thin threads are inserted into varying depths of the skin and then gently pulled to achieve a subtle lifting effect. Not only do threads provide instant lifting, but they also stimulate natural collagen production to rejuvenate your skin at an even deeper, cellular level. The results are generally fewer lines and wrinkles, improved texture, and increased elasticity that can last up to two years.
What skin concerns are MINT PDO threads used to treat?
Threads can address mild to moderate signs of aging in various areas of the skin, including but not limited to:
- Undereye hollowing & wrinkles
- Crow’s feet
- Sagging jaw line/jowling
- Nasolabial folds
- Droopy eyebrows
- Marionette lines
- Decreased cheek volume
- Neck laxity & lines
Am I a candidate for PDO threads?
Treatment with PDO threads is usually a great option for people in generally good health who are displaying mild to moderate signs of aging in the form of fine lines, wrinkles, or mild skin laxity of the face. Ideal candidates are most often people who want a subtle, instant lifting of the face but aren’t ready to commit to a surgical facelift procedure. On average, threads patients are typically between 30 and 65 years old.
What can I expect during a PDO thread treatment?
We start off by applying a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic to the treatment area. This helps ensure you stay nice and comfy during treatment. The threads are then carefully inserted by way of blunt-tipped needles called cannulas and pulled to gently lift the skin upwards. Tiny barbs on the threads help to anchor them in place once the desired lifting effect is achieved, then the excess threads are cut off. The whole process takes only about 15-30 minutes, so you don’t have to plan your whole day around your treatment.
Will I need any downtime after my PDO thread treatment?
In addition, of course, to the beautiful results they produce, our patients especially enjoy the fact that there is minimal recovery time needed following treatment with PDO threads. Most people resume their normal activities the very next day. There are some common side effects to contend with, however. These include minor inflammation and bruising, but those effects are typically mild and resolve in about a week. We will go over all the details of what you can expect at your consultation so there won’t be any surprises.
Are MINT PDO threads safe?
PDO threads are cleared for safety by the FDA and often have a lower risk for complications compared to other more invasive procedures. There’s also less risk of bleeding, scarring or severe bruising with threads.
What results can I expect from PDO threads?
A lifting effect from PDO threads is most often visible right away. The optimal results, on the other hand, typically show within about one to two months. That will depend a lot on your age, which is one of the leading factors in how fast your body produces new collagen. The timeframe you will enjoy your more refreshed appearance depends on other factors, such as thickness of the threads and your body’s individual metabolic rate. In most cases, threads completely dissolve in about six to nine months, but the lifting/tightening effect often lasts up to two years thanks to all that new collagen.
