PDO Threadlift in Garden City, Long Island
WHAT IS A PDO THREADLIFT?
Applied Aesthetic is excited to offer our patients PDO Thread Lift. This is a nonsurgical and minimally invasive way to lift the skin in the treated areas and provide an immediate and lasting youthful appearance. PDO Threads can help reduce wrinkles, fine lines, and are applicable to multiple areas of the body.
WHAT DOES A PDO THREADLIFT TREAT?
Collagen and elastin are the vital proteins that make up the supporting structure of the skin and keep it looking firm and youthful. However, as you age, it takes a longer time for your body to produce them which contributes to sagging skin and wrinkles. Heavy nasolabial folds, deepened smile lines, jowling, sunken cheeks – all these features can make you appear older and more tired. Prevention is the best way to maintain your skin’s firmness and elasticity.
HOW IS PDO THREADLIFT PERFORMED?
MINT (Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread) is an innovative procedure geared toward those who are not yet ready to undergo a surgical facelift but have age and collagen deterioration resulting in natural sagging of the skin. The thread lift works by inserting absorbable suture material into the subcutaneous layer of fat under the skin that not only lifts but also restores natural collagen production. This procedure is ideal for those who have MINOR sagging and is a great adjunct to dermal fillers as a combination treatment which can often be combined and performed the same day. The fine threads are used to other parts of the body such as the neck and décolleté to not lift but to simply increase collagen production and address the fine and superficial lines often associated with aging and sun damage to the area.
HOW LONG DOES A PDO THREADLIFT TAKE?
The procedure usually takes 1-2 hours between consultation, numbing and actual threading procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is it safe?
MINT™ threads are made from a complex sugar polydioxanone or PDO – a safe suture material that has been used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries for over 30 years. Not only that, MINT™ is also backed by more than 6 years of published studies for its safety and is the first and only PDO suture in the US market to have received dual FDA clearances.
Am I a good candidate for PDO?
For the most optimal results, the ideal candidate should have a skin layer that is not too thin or too thick and not extremely uneven. 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. One way to check before a consultation with your provider is to lay down on your back and see if you like the way your face looks, as it can be a good indicator of how effective MINT™ PDO can be. Lastly, please consult with the physician if you are an optimal candidate for MINT™ Procedure.
What kind of results can be achieved?
MINT™ PDO results are immediate. You do not have to wait weeks and months to see your results. Although individual results may vary, common results achieved with MINT™ PDO include:
- Heart shaped, higher cheekbone contour
- Exotic, cat eye contour
- Snatched, defined jaw line

How long does it take?
