What Are Mint PDO Threads? MINT® PDO threads feature barbs that are bi-directional and helically positioned. PDO threads are made of polydioxanone. When they are administered, they anchor to soft tissues and are lifted into place. These PDO threads are FDA-cleared, and they provide support to skin in all directions. A new procedure developed for people who want healthy, youthful, and rejuvenated skin, but done quickly and without surgery. This procedure is able to do this by harnessing your own body’s healing and regenerative properties. The Vampire Facelift is an outpatient procedure, and results can be experienced on the same day, with continual benefit of skin regeneration lasting for months—even over a year—after the procedure. The Vampire Facelift® is actually not a surgical facelift at all, but rather a type of skin treatment using the body’s own natural healing and growth factors that are derived from your own blood (hence the name The Vampire Facelift), combined with a hyaluronic acid dermal filler. The procedure is a near painless series of injections into strategic areas of the face to reduce wrinkles, add youthful volume, and improve the quality.
