PDO Threads

PDO Threads

PDO Threads offers a minimally invasive treatment using MINT™ biodegradable sutures to lift and reposition sagging skin, thereby refining the facial contours affected by aging. This procedure involves placing the PDO (Polydioxanone) threads beneath the skin to create a supportive scaffolding that not only lifts but also triggers collagen production in areas like the face, neck, arms, and more. The threads, which dissolve over 6-12 months, encourage the body to produce new collagen, maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity.

PDO Threads in Melville, NY, are ideal for people who want to enhance their appearance without undergoing extensive surgical procedures. The full benefits usually appear over time as collagen production increases after a quick, nearly painless session. The effects of the treatment are long-lasting, generally persisting for several years before a follow-up procedure might be needed. For a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your appearance, book an appointment with Youthology Medical in Melville, NY. PDO Threads can help you achieve a fresher, more youthful look.

Benefits of PDO Threads


MINT™ PDO Threads are known for their exceptional tensile strength and durability. They use bidirectional, barbed threads that provide a stronger lift and more significant, immediate results. The unique design of MINT™ threads allows for better anchorage to the tissue, which enhances the lifting effect and longevity of the results.

Depending on the area to be treated and the number of threads used, the MINT™ PDO Thread procedure typically takes 30 to 60 minutes. This makes it a convenient option for clients looking for significant aesthetic improvements without a long duration in the clinic.

One of the advantages of MINT™ PDO Threads is the minimal downtime involved. In most cases, patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately after the procedure. However, minor swelling, soreness, or redness might occur for a few days post-treatment.

MINT™ PDO Threads are made from a biocompatible material that is safely absorbed by the body over time. In the hands of a properly trained and licensed professional, this procedure is performed under sterile conditions with a low risk of complications.

Yes, MINT™ PDO Threads can be effectively combined with other non-surgical treatments, such as fillers and neurotoxins, to achieve more comprehensive rejuvenation results. This combination can address volume loss and skin laxity, providing a more youthful and natural appearance.

Bruising and mild swelling are common post-procedure, typically resolving within a few days to a week. Patients should avoid vigorous exercise, dental procedures, and excessive facial movements for about two weeks to ensure optimal healing and thread positioning.
