MINT Thread Lift

MINT Thread Lift is a safe and effective molding PDO thread to lift soft tissues in sagging skin.

It is a minimally invasive treatment without scarring and trauma to the skin so that patients can get back to daily life right after the procedure.

Human tissue consists of a 3D structure, so it is hard to see a great result with threads that do not have a 3D helical type of barb.

MINT Thread Lift has a 360 degree of helical barbs around the threads that has been secured by Patent Act. This creates a strong pulling effect by fixing the facial tissue in various directions effectively, this is what makes MINT Thread Lift special.

What is PDO?

PDO (Polydioxanone) is a material often used in surgical sutures and is completely absorbable by the body. PDO threads dissolve around 6-9 months after insertion and create cellular renewal and collagen stimulation to maintain the lift for another 6-9 months. At the same time, MINT PDO threads cause the fat tissue to contract, producing a skin tightening effect.

PDO Mono Thread

  • Forehead lines
  • drooping eyebrows
  • sagging jowls
  • ageing skin


The procedure works by lifting things like sagging skin tissues by inducing collagen production through the filament inserted into the skin. 

Once inserted into the skin, the threads activate collagen synthesis to gradually tighten and rejuvenate the skin. This provides the skin with a tighter feel and appearance and more of a youthful look. Typically, around 10-30 mono threads are used to treat an area.

There are different types of thread procedures which are non-surgical alternatives.

Mono Threads

Mono threads, as mentioned are smooth threads without barbs. Between 10-20 of these threads can be inserted into the skin to help encourage skin tightening and rejuvenation. The threads are attached to an “anchoring point” of the scalp or face. Mono threads however, are said to tighten the skin but not significantly lift it which is why they are typically combined with cog threads for more lifting effect.

Cog Threads

Cog threads, like mono threads are also barbed however, from the underside of the skin. These barbs form a structure which lifts the sagging tissue. Unlike mono threads, cog threads do not need anchoring points and so are easier to target certain areas. This type of treatment is said to be the most effective non surgical treatment for face lifting.

Screw Threads

Screw threads usually consist of one or two threads intertwined together around the inserting needle. Screw thread has a great effect on giving volume effect on sunken area of the skin.
