MINT PDO Threads: A Non-Invasive Skin Tightening & Skin Smoothing Method of Skin Rejuvenation Using Smooth Threads & Lifting Threads
Why Do I Have Sagging Skin?
The skin is the largest organ in the body and it plays an important role in keeping us healthy. It protects us from infection, regulates body temperature, and stores water and fat. The skin also helps us to express our emotions. As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, which are proteins that give our skin its strength and flexibility. Without them, it becomes thinner and less elastic, causing it to droop, sag, and fold in on itself to create wrinkles.
Many factors speed up our loss of collagen and elastin beyond aging. These include sun damage, smoking, weight gain or loss, poor nutrition, and certain medical conditions. There are several ways to prevent and treat skin sagging. These include using sunscreen, quitting smoking, eating a healthy diet, and exercising regularly. There are also various topical treatments that can help to tighten the skin. But when these don’t work, it may be time to turn to something more powerful.
What Are MINT PDO Threads?
These are a minimally-invasive type of thread lift that can be used to improve the appearance of sagging skin. The threads are made of polydioxanone (PDO), a type of synthetic polymer that is commonly used in medical devices and implants. They are inserted into the skin using a needle and then pulled tight. The threads cause the skin to lift and tighten, resulting in a more youthful appearance. They are typically used on the face, neck, and jowls (the area just below the jawline).
The smooth threads used in this treatment help to create a more uniform appearance on the skin. This can be beneficial for people who have skin conditions such as acne scars, wrinkles, or other blemishes. The lifting threads also work to boost up sagging, hanging skin, giving patients a more sculpted and youthful appearance. Polydioxanone is compatible with the human body, meaning patients are highly unlikely to have an allergic reaction to it. Over time, the PDO dissolves naturally and leaves the body via normal metabolic processes.
What Happens During a PDO Thread Lift?
During treatment, a fine needle is used to insert the threads into the skin. The threads are placed in strategic positions to lift and tighten the skin. The PDO threads stimulate collagen production and the skin’s natural healing process, resulting in a lifted, rejuvenated appearance. We may apply a topical numbing cream so that you can’t feel anything throughout the treatment. Patients can see results immediately.
How Often Can I Get This Treatment?
In general, most people who receive PDO treatments can expect to need touch-ups every 6-12 months to maintain their results. Additionally, it is important to note that PDO threads are not a permanent solution, and over time the skin will begin to sag and wrinkles will start to reappear. For this reason, it is generally advisable to undergo a course of 3-4 initial treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart, followed by maintenance treatments as needed.
How Long Will It Take To See Results?
It can take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to see results from this treatment. Depending on the individual case, some people may see results sooner than others. The results of PDO thread treatment are usually not immediately visible but will gradually become more apparent over time. The look of your results will depend on the number of threads used and the thickness of these threads, but overall, the treatment produces very natural-looking but still striking results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Treatment?
A good candidate for PDO threads is someone who is looking to improve the appearance of their skin by enhancing their natural beauty rather than totally changing their appearance. This treatment can be used to lift the skin and improves its overall texture, but it won’t work like a nose job or jaw reconstruction and dramatically change your appearance. As long as you’re over 18, you may be a suitable candidate for this treatment, regardless of gender or skin tone.
What Are Some Other Ways I Can Get Rid of Sagging Skin?
Ensure that you are drinking enough water. Water helps to keep your skin hydrated and prevents it from becoming dry and wrinkled. You should also make sure that you are using a good moisturizer, as this will help to keep your skin soft and supple. You may also want to consider using a topical retinoid cream or gel. Finally, you should make sure that you are getting enough exercise, which helps to tone your muscles and improve circulation, both of which can help to prevent your skin from sagging.
