PDO Thread Lift (MINT Lift, Novathreads) and PDO Thread Solid Filler Volumization

  PDO is a non-scarring absorbable suture material used since 1981 in surgery, but only recently in aesthetics.
  Smooth threads can add volume to the lip/mouth area, sunken cheeks, and treat neck and body wrinkles. 
  Dr. Zengo is a National Trainer who wrote the first ever CME Training course in PDO Threads. 

Adds Lift and Volume to Face, Neck, or Body Areas

Reposition fallen fat in the Face, Neck and Body areas with molded MINT barbed threads.

Stimulates new Collagen alone or with PRP and Fillers

PDO has been proven to trigger measurable amounts of new collagen as it dissolves over months.

Both NovaThreads and MINT Thread treatments available

We offer the best FDA-Approved threads for lifting and volume in a variety of shapes and sizes.

Georgia’s Experienced PDO Thread Treatment and Training Center

PDO Threads are one of the most exciting new treatments in aesthetic medicine.  Researched in Korea and FDA-cleared in the USA, this well-studied, absorbable monofilament material gives very predictable results with few side effects.  This has nothing in common with the Contour lift and Silhouette lift which use semi-permanent materials and have a much higher side effect profile.

There 2 main uses for PDO Threads in aesthetic medicine…

  1. Barbed Threads are thicker threads that have directional barbs molded into the thread.  This allows for the directional lifting of fat or tissue on the face.  These threads are placed under local lidocaine in under an hour.  They maintain a directional lifting of the area for months and often can also leave behind some collagen structure along their path.  Side effects are minimal with infection reported in fewer than 1% of PDO cases and scarring reported in under 1%.  They are best used for …
    • Brow lifts
    • Jawline/Under Chin
    • Nasolabial folds
    • Marionette lines
    • Jowls
    • Body areas like Abdomen and Above the knee
  2. Smooth Threads.  These are finer gauge PDO threads without barbs that function more as a “Solid Filler” or a “Mesh” that volumizes and/or supports an area of facial volume loss as they dissolve slowly over time.  They can be used in addition to hyaluronic acid dermal fillers and PRP which stimulates new tissue in multiple ways.  Because PDO threads last around 100 days, it is up to the patient how aggressively they want to turn back the clock on their aging.  We recommend treatments every 3-4 months depending on age or your goals.  And the best news is that smooth PDO threads around the mouth cost less than a syringe of Hyaluronic Acid dermal filler.
