When you look in the mirror, do you see a nose that doesn’t look like it belongs on your face? If you’ve been thinking of altering your look surgically with rhinoplasty, you may want to consider a minimally invasive non-surgical MINT PDO thread procedure instead.
MINT stands for Minimally Invasive Non-surgical Thread. You’ll see natural results without the need for surgery. How does it work? A highly absorbable thread is used to fix tissue that is sagging or not in the optimal place. The treatment uses PDO or complex sugar polydioxanone a barbed suture material that is safe and has been used in both cardiovascular and orthopedic surgeries for over three decades. Without cutting or surgery needed, the procedure involves little downtime or pain with immediate results.
With a nose thread lift, your doctor will start by applying a local anesthetic, then follow by putting the threads complete with tiny barbs specifically placed and molded around the thread, beneath the skin, along the bridge of the nose. The barbs anchor securely into skin that is sagging and the doctor can manipulate the thread to achieve the contoured, defined look that you desire. The raw material will become absorbed completely by your body. Another benefit is that PDO causes only minimal tissue trauma and reaction. Generally, the procedure takes less than an hour and the immediate results can last up to one year.
The FDA has given clearance for lifting for nasolabial fold dept reduction, so you can feel safe about having the procedure. With multiple years of published studies based on safety, MINT PDO will deliver results you can trust.
You may be an ideal candidate for MINT PDO if you have a layer of skin that is neither too thick nor too thin and is mostly even. When the skin is thin enough, MINT PDO can make a visible impact. When the skin is thick enough, the threads won’t be too close to the surface of the skin.
There are many benefits of MINT PDO-threading. The results are long-lasting with no incision, minimal to no scarring and a very low risk of adverse reaction. With almost no downtime, this procedure is an amazing alternative to surgical options. Another reason to consider MINT PDO is that it is an ideal procedure to have performed in conjunction with additional treatments like injectables, lasers, fillers or BOTOX.
