Smooth PDO Mono Threads, Full Circle Appearance Medicine, Cambridge, New Zealand2021-10-24T17:19:51+13:00


Achieve firmer rejuvenated skin with MINT Mono threads. This treatment for non-surgical tightening is cutting edge and one of the most recently approved technologies by the FDA.

A simple treatment where multiple fine, hair-like, dissolvable thread, pre-threaded onto a very fine needle are placed just under the skin in a mesh like fashion in order to give strength and structure to skin showing signs of volume loss and collagen depletion.

The threads encourage collagen, elastin and Hyaluronic acid production tightening and firming the skin.

Treatment results are seen in 8-12 weeks and last up to 12 months. As the threads dissolve over time, they stimulate collagen and elastin production to achieve a complete anti-ageing effect.

The number of threads used per treatment varies but mostly 10 – 60 threads are used per session at a cost of $10 per thread.

The threads are made of suture material which has been used in surgery to close wounds for decades.

They can be used in the face, neck or décolletage.
