Using dissolvable sutures, our Sacramento Mint PDO Thread Lift specialists at Pretty Please Aesthetics can lift and suspend loose face, jowl, and neck tissues with minimal downtime and without the risks of invasive surgery.
Thread Lifting is a non-surgical facelift and skin lifting procedure that raises and suspends lax skin with threads. Rather than invasive surgery, which permanently resects the loose skin, the Mint PDO threads are made of Polydioxanone (PDO), a medical-grade material composed of harmless protein woven throughout the tissues to elevate the face and neck contours. Thinner than a strand of hair, these surgical threads relax tendons and muscles while stimulating the production of new collagen in the skin. They also stimulate elastin and hyaluronic acid, which are vital in maintaining firm, youthful-looking skin.
Mint PDO threads can provide up to two years of skin lifting to reverse common signs of aging on your face, jawline, and neck. However, the collagen and elastin growth benefit will continuously provide results for up to three years.
Mint PDO threads can lift and tighten sagging jowls, cheeks, and the forehead area non-surgically.
In less than one hour, horizontal necklines, mild to moderate double chin skin laxity, and weak jawline definition can significantly improve with a non-surgical neck lift using Mint PDO Threads.
Mint PDO threads and botulinum toxin (Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin®) lift and shape your brow while softening eye wrinkles, brow furrows, and forehead lines.
Using a combination of Mint PDO Threads for lips along with Dermal Fillers, you can have a plump, sexy pout with improved contours and definition.
As a non-surgical facelift, it provides visibly more youthful skin without having to go under the knife. Mint PDO Threads also work well for non-surgical neck rejuvenation. It provides exceptional neck tightening results. The threads improve the look of sagging neck skin while building collagen and elastin firm supple skin foundations. As the neck skin elevates and tightens, suspended by the threads, neck wrinkles all but disappear.
Thread Lifting is not suitable for women who are pregnant or lactating.
Some medical conditions, including certain autoimmune disorders, viral infections, and bleeding disorders, may require different approaches. In addition, people with allergies to PDO or PDS suture materials should not have a Thread Lift.
Before your Mint PDO Thread Lift Sacramento Pretty Please provider administers local anesthetic . Powerful numbing agents ensure you feel no pain. Next, our skilled thread lift providers gently insert a fine-gauge needle or trocar to create a channel for the thread to enter. The PDO threads pass into the skin painlessly, and then our providers move them into the proper position. The procedure takes approximately one hour.
There are few restrictions on the day of treatment. You may take Tylenol and arnica to ease any lingering post-treatment discomfort as needed. It is best to sleep with your head elevated for the first few nights. Avoid massaging the treated area, exercise, alcohol use, NSAIDs, and Vitamin E in the days after your treatment. Avoid exaggerated facial movements and chewing after midface thread placement. Bruising, swelling, tenderness, tightness, and initial redness are common after your Thread Lift. Everyone heals at a different rate. Most side effects of treatment dissipate in two to four weeks. If you have any questions, contact the office for assistance. You will be asked to come in for a follow-up visit to ensure everything is healing nicely. Over time, the threads dissolve naturally, so there is no need to remove them.
Thread Lifting results last anywhere from one to three years. Individual results may vary. To see the Mint PDO Thread Lift results for yourself, view unretouched Thread Lift before and after photos in the Pretty Please Aesthetics online gallery.

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you will have to wait until later to have PDO Thread Lifting. While the threads themselves are harmless for mom and baby, the procedure uses a local anesthetic that is best avoided during pregnancy and lactation. To help you correct signs of aging and turn up your glow during this special moment of your life, Pretty Please Aesthetics offers several pregnancy-safe aesthetic treatments and skincare products.
The Mint PDO Thread Lift cost varies based on your individual aging concerns and the degree of correction required to achieve your desired cosmetic goals. A huge benefit is it costs far less than cosmetic surgery, yet the results are just as remarkable in many situations.
