Mint Mono Threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO) which is the material used in dissolveable stitches. Numbing cream is applied and the threads are inserted in a mesh like fashion to provide support and structure to the skin. Once the needle is removed, the fine thread stays in place. The threads are fully absorbable by the body and will be completely dissolved at around 3 months post insertion. This process creates cellular renewal and collagen stimulation in the area being treated which in turn produces a skin tightening effect and smoother appearance.
PDO threads can be used virtually anywhere on the face or body. Some results are noticeable straight away however the full effect can be seen at around 3 months after your treatment. Mono threads are a great option for areas where botulinum toxin or filler isn’t suitable or anywhere the skin needs a boost. This treatment takes around an hour and downtime is often minimal.
