What are MINT MONO Threads?
MINT MONO threads are smooth monofilament stimulating threads, pre-threaded onto a small needle. They are made from polydiaxanone, or PDO, which has been used in surgery for more than 30 years. These threads are placed in the dermal layer of the skin and they help initiate the formation of new collagen to improves skin firmness and elasticity. MINT MONO threads are completely absorbed by the body about 3-4 months after treatment and the results lasts up to 6-9 months.
MINT MONO threads are versatile and can be used in many areas across the face and body. Treatment areas include:
Face: nasolabial lines
Neck and décolletage
Body: sagging breasts, elbows, knees, upper arms, thighs, loose abdominal skin, buttocks
Mono threads are smooth threads with no barbs. These thread types are wonderful for tightening up the skin when lifting is not really required. Multiple mono threads are positioned into the face in a mesh-like fashion for a fantastic skin-tightening result. Mono threads are made from the same material as dissolving internal stitches. What this means is when placed into areas that need extra tightening, collagen forms all around the threads, providing tightening in the skin. The thread dissolves, leaving newly formed collagen which firms and tightens up the skin area.
This treatment works perfectly in areas such as necklines, neck sagginess, the forehead, and under eyes – but you can apply them anywhere in the skin. Between 20-70 mono threads and or combination of skin tightening threads are inserted. These all depend on individual needs and bruising.
Mono threads tighten the skin but without substantial lifting – therefore they are often used together with cog threads to give an overall improvement in face tightening and rejuvenation. Sometimes these can also be used as a cheaper alternative to fillers.
If you’re looking to give areas of your face more volume, screw threads are an excellent option. Screw threads are available with one or two threads that have been intertwined around the inserting needle to amplify the results. To create a V-shape face, screw threads help to reverse sunken areas and give the face a non-surgical facelift. When two threads are intertwined, the method is known as a “multi screw”.
Many people desire a non-surgical V-shape face but are unable to achieve it without the help of a surgeon. PDO Mono and or Screw threads are able to tighten, and support aging tissues without invasive methods like surgery. The procedure takes at least one hour or more depending on the areas to be treated with minimal pain. The results of PDO threads typically last between 9-12.
If you’re concern with mild facial sagging, PDO threads may help you achieve a more youthful appearance. For more information about the different types of PDO threads, contact our Experience Cosmetic Injector Soraya Sabetian At Sabetian Natural Appearance Clinic.
