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

  • Eye area

  • Neck and décolletage

  • Upper cheeks

  • Jowl area

  • Marionette lines

  • Sagging face

  • Vermillion border

  • Crow’s feet

  • 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.
