When can I see results?
The procedure takes an average of 1 hour, and results can be seen immediately. Patients will experience minimal pain, minimal scarring, and minimal downtime compared to surgical procedures, and results will improve over time as the swelling, redness, and bruising go down.
How long is the downtime?
After the procedure, you may immediately resume your daily activities. More intense activities such as exercise should be resumed after a week, but please consult with your provider beforehand.
Can I get other treatments in combination with PDO Threads?
Yes! 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™.
How long will results last?
The body absorbs PDO threads in 6-8 months after insertion, but the results can last for up to one year as the threads can help stimulate collagen production in the skin. However, results will vary depending on the degree of sagging, thickness of the skin, and the facial structure of the patient.
Is it safe for me to get PDO threads if I plan on getting a facelift in the future?
PDO threads dissolve in 6-8 months after insertion and should not pose a problem for a patient who plans to get a facelift in the future. However, cases can vary greatly from patient to patient, so we recommend consulting with a provider who has experience with both PDO threads and facelifts.
