MINTTM PDO at Tru Glō Medspa

Safely Firm Your Sagging Skin with Minimally Invasive Nonsurgical Thread

For a minimally invasive alternative to surgical facelift procedures, Tru Glō Medspa now offers its Naples, Florida-area clients an innovative solution to help correct age-related sagging skin concerns. With six years of clinical study and two FDA approvals, MINT™ PDO provides near-instant firming of facial areas displaying noticeable signs of aging. The procedure has proven effective at correcting sags, folding, and hollowing in the mid-facial region and softening jowls along the jawline. Because Mint™ PDO can target distinct problem areas, the procedure can also be used to:

  • Contour heart-shaped, higher-looking cheekbones
  • Contour exotic cat eyes
  • Better define the jawline
  • Soften smile lines
  • Soften eyebrows
  • Smooth necklines

MINT™ PDO has also been proven to be a perfect adjunct for other procedures, such as Botox®, injectable fillers, and laser treatment.

How the MINT™ PDO Treatment Works

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.

MINTTM PDO Frequently Asked Questions

How does Mint™ PDO work to improve my facial features?

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.

Who are good candidates for the Mint™ PDO procedure?

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.

When will I see the results?

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.

What facial areas experience the best results?

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.

How long does the Mint™ PDO procedure take?

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.

Are there any side effects or after-treatment requirements?

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.

Highly Recommend

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.

Summer H

Definitely 5 star!

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!

Erica M

Love Everything About this Place

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.
