Skin Rejuvenation

PDO Mono Threads

MINT™ PDO Mono threads are smooth threads (without barbs), used for tightening the skin. The threads are made of PDO suture material, which has been used in surgery for over 30 years to close wounds.

The MINT threads stimulate production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, wherever in the skin they are placed – this results in firmer rejuvenated skin. This treatment for non-surgical tightening is cutting edge and one of the most-recently approved technologies by the FDA.

PDO Threads treatment is suitable for anyone who has started to notice the signs of ageing. It is particularly popular with our clients in their 30s through to 50s, who either do not want to undergo a surgical thread lift or who are looking for a more subtle result.

Before any treatment, you will have a complimentary consultation to discuss your concerns, treatment suitability and aesthetic goals.

Esteem Clinic prides itself on utilising the highest quality, medical grade skincare available worldwide, and the latest in skin treatment technology. For over 25 years, Esteem Clinic has been performing skin care treatments, so you can be assured that your treatment is performed by a highly qualified, experienced practitioner.

How it works
  • Numbing anaesthetic cream is applied for 60 mins prior to your treatment
  • The MINT mono threads are pre-threaded onto a small needle
  • The introducer needle is inserted through the dermal layer of the skin
  • The needle is removed leaving the fine hair-like thread in the dermis
  • Once placed, the threads activate the production of collagen to gradually tighten and rejuvenate the skin
  • This action provides the skin with a tighter feel and appearance and more of a youthful look
  • Typically, around 10-30 threads are used to treat a single area
Areas treated
  • Neck lines and skin laxity
  • Cheeks
  • Lower face and jowls
  • Under the eyes
  • In between and around the eyes
  • Décolletage
  • Around the mouth and peri-oral lines
  • Stomach
  • Knees 
  • Arms

Anywhere on the face and body that requires a firmer more rejuvenated skin.


Immediate results can be seen once the threads have been inserted, however, the results will improve over the next 3-6 months. The PDO suture material on the MINT threads is gradually degraded and absorbed by your body over 6-9 months. The results are expected to last 12-24 months.

Post Treatment Care

You will notice some swelling and bruising to the treated areas. Post treatment care can reduce these side effects and help them resolve faster.

You should use cool packs 2-4 hourly after treatment, for the first 24-48 hours

Use Hirudoid or Arnica cream.

You can take paracetamol 4-6 hourly, and we also recommend taking an antihistamine to help reduce inflammation.

We recommend you sleep with an extra pillow having your head slightly more elevated for 3-5 nights.

Be gentle when washing and shaving your face/the treated area.

For the first 2 weeks, avoid UV exposure, contact sports, dentists, saunas and being overly expressive with your face.

For up to a week after the procedure, it may feel tender around the sutures.

Avoid significant massaging of your face/treated area for 4 weeks.
