MINT™ PDO (SAFE SOLUTION TO SAGGING SKIN)

Instant, Natural & Quality Results that Last without Invasive Surgery

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.

ABOUT MINT™ PDO

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.

In 2013, MINT™ received 510(k) clearance from the FDA as a Class II medical device, by demonstrating that the device to be marketed is safe and effective. MINT™ received global registrations for lifting indication from seven countries, such as the Korea MFDS, Europe CE, and China CFDA, to assure its excellent technological capabilities and reliable safety. In 2020, MINT™ became the only PDO suture in the US market to have received dual FDA clearances and is the only device of its kind to receive clearance for a lifting indication for nasolabial fold depth reduction.

MINT™ PDO thread is a minimally invasive procedure that does not require general anesthesia nor big incisions for your patients. There are tiny barbs strategically placed and molded all around the thread. Once the threads are placed into the skin, the barbs anchor onto sagging skin, and the thread can be maneuvered to achieve a naturally youthful and defined look.

Not only can it improve the appearance of sagging skin, PDO (polydioxanone) can also help promote the stimulation of collagen and neovascularization, which helps to improve skin elasticity, texture, fine lines, and volume for a timeless rejuvenation.

Unlike conventional sutures that cut the barbs from the integral core of the thread, MINT™ is manufactured through an innovative patented technology where the barbs are press-molded on the surface of the thread to maintain its structural integrity. The 360 degrees of helically positioned barbs are designed to maximize tensile and anchoring strength in order to securely anchor onto the 3D structure of the soft tissue for effective and powerful approximation.

Why MINT™ PDO

FDA Approved, Safe Raw Material of Polydioxanone

PDO stands for Polydioxanone which is a biodegradable, safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. The body absorbs PDO threads in 6-8 months after insertion, but results can last for up to one year as PDO can help stimulate collagen production and neovascularization in the skin.

Patented 360°, Helically Molded Barbs

MINT™'s 360-degree helically positioned barbs are designed to maximize tensile and anchoring strength. Its unique barbs securely anchor onto the 3D structure of the soft tissue from all directions for an effective and powerful approximation.

Minimally Invasive Procedure

Minimally invasive with minimal trauma and scarring

High Tensile Strength of USP 1-0

Instant Results & Minimal Downtime

PDO Thread with an Expiration of 3 Years from its Production Date

Patented Press-molded Technology

Unlike conventional sutures that cut the barbs from the integral core of the thread, MINT™ is manufactured through an innovative patented technology where the barbs are press-molded on the surface of the thread to maintain its structural integrity.

Clinically Studied MINT™ PDO

MINT PDO is backed by more than 6 years of published studies such as: Samira Yarak and Juliano Augusto Ribeiro de Carvalho (2017) Facial Rejuvenation with Absorbable and Barbed Thread Lift: Case Series with Mint Lift™ Jeremy C. Davis and Richard G. Bennett (2017) Lower Facial Rejuvenation Using Absorbable Casting Barbed Thread

Compatible with Injectables

MINT™ is compatible with many other procedures, so you can take advantage of all the best things each treatment has to offer for synergistic effects. Target wrinkles with neuromodulators, restore volume with dermal fillers, address skin texture with laser treatments, and take care of sagging skin with MINT™.

Safe, FDA Cleared MINT™ PDO

The ONLY PDO Thread to receive FDA Clearance for nasolabial fold depth reduction

MINT received FDA clearance in 2013 for suture indication – for use in soft tissue approximation. In 2020, MINT is the ONLY PDO Thread to receive FDA clearance for a NEW indication – for use in mid-face suspension procedure to temporarily fixate the cheek sub dermis in an elevated position for the purpose of nasolabial fold depth reduction.
