Lift Facial Contours Without Surgery

PDO Thread Lift is a cosmetic procedure that uses polydioxanone (PDO) threads to lift and tighten sagging facial skin. These biodegradable threads are carefully inserted beneath the skin, providing an immediate lift without surgery. As the threads dissolve, they stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin elasticity and offering a youthful, rejuvenated appearance. Malik Medical Aesthetics performs this procedure using MINT (Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread), a specialized PDO thread that offers optimal results with minimal discomfort.

  • Neck laxity
  • Undereye bags
  • Wrinkled foreheads
  • Loose skin on the chin

How PDO Thread Lift Works

The PDO Thread Lift procedure involves inserting thin polydioxanone (PDO) threads beneath the skin’s surface. These threads have tiny barbs that anchor to the skin’s tissue, providing an upward lift. Over time, the PDO threads biodegrade, but their presence stimulates the body’s natural production of collagen, a protein essential for skin elasticity and firmness. This dual action offers immediate lifting and long-term skin rejuvenation at a cellular level.

Benefits of PDO Thread Lift:

  • Immediate skin lifting
  • Non-surgical procedure
  • Minimal downtime
  • Stimulates natural collagen production
  • Provides a more youthful facial contour
  • Biodegradable and safe materials
  • Long-lasting results
  • Suitable for various facial areas
  • Less invasive than traditional facelifts

PDO Thread Lift FAQs

What makes MINT PDO unique?

MINT PDO offers advanced polydioxanone (PDO) threads designed with patented press-molded barbs for superior anchoring. Furthermore, MINT PDO boasts triple FDA clearances, and its unique 360° helical design ensures unparalleled results in skin rejuvenation and lifting.

How is a PDO Thread Lift different from a surgical facelift?

While surgical facelifts involve incisions, tissue removal, and longer recovery times, PDO Thread Lifts are minimally invasive, require no cuts, and have little to no downtime.

Who is an ideal candidate for a PDO Thread Lift?

Individuals with mild to moderate skin sagging are ideal for PDO Thread Lift. Please consult our cosmetic providers to discuss your goals — they’ll analyze your skin type and determine suitability based on your needs and desired outcomes.

How long does the procedure take?

The procedure typically takes about an hour, depending on the treated areas. Patients can typically return to their daily activities immediately after, provided they avoid strenuous workouts and direct sunlight for a few days.

Is the procedure painful?

Local anesthesia is usually administered before the treatment, so most patients feel minimal discomfort during the procedure. Some might experience a tightness or minor soreness afterward, which subsides quickly, but the pain is minimal.

Are there any side effects?

Common side effects include mild swelling, bruising, and soreness, which usually resolve within a few days. Our providers take all necessary precautions to ensure minimal side effects.

How soon will I see the results?

You can expect immediate lifting right after the procedure. However, the best results, enhanced by collagen production, become more evident after a few weeks.

How long do the results last?

While the PDO threads dissolve in 6-8 months, the results last up to a year or more due to collagen stimulation.

Can I combine PDO Thread Lift with other treatments?

Yes, PDO Thread Lift can be combined with other cosmetic procedures like dermal fillers, Botox, or laser treatments for enhanced results.
