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.

Had one of the best facials ever at TruGlo Medspa! It’s a gorgeous space and the staff was amazing. I loved every minute of it! I highly recommend it!
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.
Friendly staff, beautiful facility, very knowledgeable, the BBL treatment works wonders
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!
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!
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!
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!
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.
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!
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.
