An Instant Facelift without Surgery

The aging process is inevitable. Even with the best preventive skincare routine, you’ll eventually start to see fine lines, wrinkles, sunken cheek bones, and other common signs of aging. While it used to be that surgery was the only real way to reverse these signs of aging, modern cosmetic treatments can make a dramatic impact with no incisions, no downtime, and no scarring. PDO threads are one way to see incredible results that will last for months or even years to come.

MINT PDO is a safe, trusted procedure that patients around the world are raving about. MINT, or Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Threads can provide an instant lift in target treatment areas to address sagging skin, lines, and wrinkles. The threads can even improve facial contours for added definition in the cheekbones and jawline. If you’re ready to see the amazing results MINT can yield, schedule your consultation at Perfection Plastic Surgery & Skin Care.

How MINT PDO Works

MINT PDO is a type of thread lift, which involves the placement of PDO thread just underneath the skin. These threads immediately lift and tighten the skin in target areas, eventually dissolving in the skin to trigger the production of new collagen and elastin, for a long-lasting youthful appearance in the skin.

PDO threads are made from polydioxanone—this may sound complicated, but it’s really just a complex sugar. This material is safe in the body and has been used in various surgical applications for decades. In the thread lift procedure, MINT PDOs are threaded through the skin for an instant visual improvement. Over time, the results only get better.

Results You Can Achieve from Your Treatment

MINT PDO can address many different common signs of aging. There are several different types of MINT PDO threads that can achieve various effects in the facial features, including:

  • Improved contour of the cheekbones.
  • Cat eye contour.
  • Jaw line definition.
  • Softened smile lines.
  • Softened eyebrows.
  • Smooth neck lines.
  • Reduced appearance of jowls.

Even better, these effects come with no surgical risks, minimal or no scarring, no incisions, and no downtime. Treatment may also be repeated as necessary, so you can maintain a youthful appearance at any age. Results typically last up to one year following your treatment.


Yes! Several other procedures pair beautifully with MINT PDO, including Botox, Juvederm fillers, laser skin rejuvenation, and microneedling. PDO threads can improve the underlying structure of the facial features, while other treatments can improve the appearance of the surface of your skin to take years off your look.

MINT PDO is the only PDO thread procedure in the U.S. to have multiple FDA clearances. MINT is backed by years of extensive research, and PDO sutures have been proven safe through decades of use in cardiovascular and orthopedic surgeries.

MINT PDO is an in-office procedure that takes about 45-90 minutes to complete. We recommend visiting our office for a consultation prior to scheduling your treatment, so you can determine if MINT is right for you and whether you would benefit from adding other procedures to your treatment plan.

PDO threads are versatile, and many patients can benefit from them. However, they aren’t right for all skin types. One quick test to determine if you’ll be happy with your results is to lie on your back and look at your face in the mirror—if you like how your face looks, you’ll likely see pleasing results from MINT PDO.

One of the best things about MINT threads is that you’ll see results right away, and they’ll only continue to get better as collagen and elastin rebuild beneath the surface of your skin.

Placing PDO threads is a simple procedure that isn’t painful or uncomfortable. A topical anesthetic may be used to ensure a painless procedure.
