Do MINT PDO Thread Lifts Really Work?

A PDO thread lift is a minimally-invasive procedure – and an alternative to facelift surgery – that does not require general anesthesia, involves no large incisions, and has no significant downtime or post-procedure pain.

But, with all of these advantages over invasive facelift surgery, our patients often ask us: “Do PDO Thread Lifts Really Work?”

MINT PDO Threads Lifts vs. Face Lift Surgery

MINT™ PDO thread lifts have become an extremely popular alternative to facelift surgery for many reasons.

Even though face lift techniques have improved in recent years, face lift surgery still requires that the patient be hospitalized and “knocked out” with anesthesia. Then, during the face lift operation, large incisions are made, loose skin is literally cut off with a surgical knife, and then the tissue around the facial muscles is tightened and sewn back together – typically leaving lengthy scars behind the ears or around the hair line.

Drain tubes are typically placed in the face at the time of face lift surgery to remove any blood or fluid accumulation. Bed rest is required for a few days to a week after facelift surgery, and pain, visible swelling, and bruising can last for two to three weeks – or longer.

Conversely, MINT PDO Thread Lift patients experience virtually no downtime, and are able to resume work and other daily activities the next day. And there are no large incisions to heal and hide.

MINT PDO Thread Lift Results

During a non-surgical PDO thread lift, invisible sutures or “threads” are inserted beneath areas of sagging skin to pull it back into its original, youthful position. So, instead of cutting off loose skin like painful facelift surgery, a thread lift simply puts skin back in its original place and holds it there.

In other words, a thread lift simply restores youthful, natural looking tone and tightness – without the typical “sliced and stretched” appearance of a face lift.

Additionally, the inserted threads also activate the body’s production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid. This results in natural development of thicker, younger, smoother, tighter and more elastic facial skin over time – with results that last for years, even after the PDO threads have dissolved.

So, while a facelift just stretches “old” skin, a thread lift rebuilds younger, plumper, healthier skin from the inside out.

The Areas a PDO Thread Lift Can Improve

#1. Thread Lift for the Jawline

A MINT PDO Thread Lift can reduce or eliminate jowls and define and sharpen the chin and jawline. A thread lift can also create more attractive “heart-shaped” facial contours.

#2. Thread Lift for the Cheeks

As we age, the cheeks loose subcutaneous fat, and often start to sag and become flat in appearance. But a MINT PDO Thread Lift positions and holds the cheeks back into their original position – creating visibly higher and more prominent cheekbones.

#3. Thread Lift for the Eyes

With age, the skin around the eyes loses elasticity and begins to sag and droop – adding years to one’s appearance. A Thread Lift restores the skin to its original, higher position.

And, thread lift “cat-eyes” are extremely popular with women of all ages.  Influencers and celebrities – like super model Bella Hadid and the Kardashian-Jenner women – are known for their ‘feline’ features, with upturned eyes and arched brows.

By inserting a thread at the outer tail of the eyebrow and lifting the brow upwards, it can be anchored at the desired height to achieve the on-trend cat-eye look!

#4. Thread Lift for the Skin

A thread lift softens fine lines and reduces or eliminate wrinkles two ways. First the microscopic “barbs” on the thread securely anchor onto the lax skin, lifting and holding it in place to reduce sagging, wrinkles and lines. But that’s not all!

And, while the PDO threads dissolve and eventually get absorbed by the body, they also stimulate the body’s renewed natural production of collagen – the building block or “scaffolding” of firm, toned, plump healthy skin. This leads to improvement in skin texture, tone, tightness and elasticity for long lasting results.

MINT™ PDO Thread Lift – Austin, TX

Because a PDO thread lift simply restores skin to its original position, the appearance is much more natural-looking than the stretching and cutting of face lift plastic surgery. Additionally, because the PDO threads facilitate renewed production of natural collagen fibers, the skin itself is improved, so results are long lasting.

And, while a MINT™ PDO Thread Lift offers many of the same benefits of a surgical facelift – it does not involve the expense, pain, potential complications, and long recovery period of surgery.
