MINT™ PDO’s skin-firming actions are described in part by its name. MINT stands for minimally invasive nonsurgical thread, and PDO describes the thread’s polydioxanone composition. This complex sugar has been used for more than 30 years to make sutures used in orthopedic and cardiovascular surgeries. MINT™ PDO’s patented molding technology creates 3D helical barbs in the thread that securely tighten and contour sagging skin to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds and other signs of sagging.
As a minimally invasive procedure, the insertion of MINT™ PDO threads does not require general anesthesia or significant incisions. Patients report experiencing minimal pain during the procedure, require no downtime, and typically notice immediate results. In addition to skin firming produced by the placement and manipulation of the threads, MINT™ PDO also helps improve skin elasticity and texture and reduces the appearance of fine lines by stimulating collagen production and neovascularization.
PDO threads are strategically inserted into the skin and then pulled in directions in which the thread’s tiny barbs maneuver the skin to naturally firm areas experiencing sagging, folding, and hollowing. The sugar composition of the PDO also helps stimulate collagen production and neovascularization for further enhancement of skin elasticity, texture, and fine line decreases.
Ideal Mint™ PDO patients tend to be aged 20-60 with medium-depth skin layers that are neither too thin nor too deep. Those with thicker skin may not realize optimal results, while thin skin may force the threads too close to the skin’s surface.
Results from a Mint™ PDO are immediately noticeable, and further improvements may be seen over time due to the procedure’s stimulation of collagen production and neovascularization.
The versatility of Mint™ PDO means it can be used on most areas of the face, but the primary areas treated are nasolabial folds, smile lines, jowls, jawline, marionette lines, and eyebrows, chin, and neck.
With prep work, numbing, and post-care, most patients are in our office for an hour to an hour and a half, but only about a half-hour of that time represents the thread insertion and maneuvering.
Clinical studies have proven Mint™ PDO to be safe, with only a few infrequent side effects that are easily resolved. Most patients experience some mild swelling, and some also experience mild bruising, though both conditions resolve themselves within days. Patients can resume normal daily activities and wear make-up on the day after the procedure. Patients should avoid high-impact sports and strenuous exercise for one to two weeks and not schedule any significant dental procedures for two weeks.

Friendly staff and great massage and facials, I recommend everyone to try them:)
I’ve been going to Maddy for a couple years now, she has done my facials and my laser hair removal. She amazing, friendly and knows her skin care!
First time ever receiving a hydro facial. Dalna did an incredible job, she was very professional and the hydro facial was an incredible experience. Very welcoming atmosphere, nice greeting at the front. Thorough explanation by Dalna regarding the service and she did amazing all the way around. Very friendly, had a calming sense about her and my face was glowing when I left. My son said my face felt like butter…..haha. Great job Dalna and thanks for the TruGlo experience! I will be back monthly and will most certainly recommended to anyone and everyone.
Fantastic results from my BBL with Stacy. She’s a joy to chat with during the treatment. She explains everything and I feel like I have a plan now.
I look forward to becoming a regular at this Medspa, Molly is so knowledgeable and passionate about skincare and I just knew walking in that I would be in good hands, and I was!
We have had several treatments with various Tru Glo team members and they have all been exceptional! We highly recommend Tru Glo for every treatment you would want. Their team is professional and will be honest with the best approach or products for your skin and the goals you have for yourself.
The best Med Spa in the tristate area. The best service and the best quality services. I can’t say enough good things about Tru Glow.
I have had a number of experiences with the ladies and gentleman( massage therapist) at Tru Glow. Molly has given me a number of facials and is very knowledgeable and Professional with product and services. She has helped keep my skin clear and youthful and it is always a pleasure visiting with her. Full of life. Stacy the Nurse practitioner is amazing and funny as heck. She too knows her profession and product. Always acts in the best interest of clients will engage in many medical questions or concerns with many of her medical colleagues. Courtney and Maddie are both amazing assets as well and care for clients and spa, their schedules defines there skills and popularity with guests. They have brought on a massage therapist who I understand works directly with many local professional athletes in all sports and travels directly exclusive to them during their respective seasons. He too is very knowledgeable and professional in his craft. Very skilled with different massage techniques. Gretchen is one of ladies you will see up front and she is wonderful. Fun and professional, she does a great job managing appointments and product and knows a lot about them. The overall, the staff at Tru Glow knows their stuff and they love their talents. Highly recommend them to anyone.
Every time I visit Tru Glo Med Spa it is a fantastic experience. Everyone goes beyond to make your time spent there truly magical and the treatments have you leaving with your glow on.
Excellent all around. Had incredible results with Bbl treatments! THANK YOU STACEY 😉 Tru Glo for me is tops in professionalism, expertise and friendly helpful staff.
Very knowledgeable staff. Will definitely be returning here!
Highly recommend TruGlo MedSpa for all laser aesthetics. Stacy Blake, over 30yrs of experience and beautiful herself, transformed my face with just one HALO treatment($1600) as seen in my before and after pictures below. Dr Gardner(best plastic surgeon in all of South Florida) owns TruGlo MedSpa.
I had consultations with all of the top doctors in South Florida; Naples, Coral Gables, Palm Beach, Boca Raton and Jupiter. I decided to go with Dr Gardner & TruGlo MedSpa. Afterwards I went back to the same top plastic surgeons who complimented Gardner’s work.
Tru Glo Medspa is top notch. The office is beautiful with calm aura. Gretchen is always so helpful and knowledgeable. Stacey Blake, who has performed multiple treatments on my face from filler, Botox, Dysport, BBL and laser peels, is just amazing. She is so gentle handed and always making sure you are okay during procedures. She has even went the extra mile to assist me addressing a skin issue which I didn’t even mentioned because I didn’t think there was much I could do about it. With her help I have cleared up an issue which was really affecting my daily life and I am so thankful for her help. After having had Tru Glo’s amazing staff I would never even consider going anywhere else ever for my cosmetic needs. Definitely 5 star!
I just love everything about this place! It is a little pricey but it’s really worth it if you want to see real results. Maddie knows my skin better than I do and knows every procedure & product inside and out. I’d highly recommend it to anyone that is looking to take their beauty regimen to the next level.
Love everyone here! Try the new “O2 Glo Lifting Facial”. It literally makes your face GLOW!
Also tried the Nano Laser procedure….OMG! Literally no downtime, and pores get smaller! I can’t tell you how many comments I have had and how great my face and neck look! These folks are some of the best!
You could not be disappointed. Stacey takes the time to talk through alternative treatments, she’s very easy to work with, AND you get RESULTS!
First time @ Tru Glo and had a wonderful experience. I had a hydra facial with Maddie – she was super knowledgeable and gave me lots of tips and tricks to glowing skin. Spa is gorgeous – clean and smells amazing! Everyone I encountered couldn’t have been nicer. Can’t wait to go back for another treatment!
Excellent staffing from front desk to clinicians. Knowledgeable in specific treatments, taking the time to explain in detail what to expect and reasonable results. Spa environment, medical expertise. A win win!
Friendly staff, beautiful facility, very knowledgeable, the BBL treatment works wonders
I’ve had hydrafacials and BBL’s in the past year and I’ve received so many compliments on my skin! The Spa, staff, and treatments are the best.
