PDO Thread Lift
PDO thread lift is the trending minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelift procedures in recent times. It has produced very good results for the emerging cat eye, V-line, and snatched jawline trends. In the thread lift procedure, threads are inserted underneath the skin to instantly and effectively lift sagging skin. These threads are used on the face and the neck to lift sagging skin, but can also be used to lift skin on the body.
The reason behind its popularity is because in the thread lift procedure, it does not involve any kind of surgery. It is a minimally invasive and very safe and effective in-office procedure with little downtime especially when performed by an experts.

Are you a good candidate for MINT™ PDO?
Thread lifts are perfect for both men and women with light to moderate sagging in the skin around the neck, face, and jowl areas. For the most optimal results, one should have a skin layer that is not too thin or too thick. The skin should be thin enough so MINT™ PDO can make a visible difference and thick enough so the threads are not too close to the surface of the skin. Also, here at Fountain of Youth Medical Spa, Dr. Nhi will examine first and analyse if you are an optimal candidate for MINT™ Procedure.
