This is a 1-day hands on training Course. CME APPROVED FOR 6.25 CREDIT HOURS.

Course: Overview

PDO threads rejuvenates, regenerates and improves the structure of the face without the need for surgery.

It uses special threads, which are introduced into the skin with a very fine needle, to lift the tissue and improve skin texture.

The threads used are made of polydioxanone (PDO), which is a material that has been used in medicine for many years, mainly in surgery. PDO sutures have been used for Pediatric Cardiac urgery for over 35 years.

Research has shown that PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which encourages the production of new collagen in the skin.

A lifted appearance can be seen immediately following the treatment; however, the results will improve in the following days and weeks as the PDO stimulates neocollagenesis, which in turn produces collagen.

The overall texture of the skin is improved; it becomes thicker, tighter and firmer and other skin issues like open pores, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed away as well.

Different lengths of thread are used for different areas of the face. Short strands of threads can be used to treat fine lines around the eyes, while thicker strands can be injected into the cheek area or jaw line.

The best part of this entire treatment is that the body naturally absorbs the threads in six to seven months. These threads are extremely versatile and can be used all around the face and neck, typically for wrinkles on the forehead, sagging brows, drooping cheeks, sagging jawline and neck folds.

Since it’s performed in under one hour with minimal breaks, this has become a favorite with people favoring non-surgical procedures as this lift is created using your body’s own collagen.

PDO threads with barbs are used to lift, reposition, and secure static sagging skin. Using several different needle techniques, significant eyebrow, cheek, jaw, neck, buttock, and even breast lifts can be achieved … without surgery!

What can you expect?
This is a 1-day hands-on training course. You will be trained in the most clinically relevant facial areas on injectable techniques using a model that we encourage you to bring as the learning really should not end in class but afterwards so you can see the process heal and the results settle in to understand time frames and to manage a patients expectations post treatment-This is HIGHLY ENCOURAGED.  However, if you cannot bring a model or volunteer, please let us know at least one week prior to the course you have enrolled in so we can provide you a volunteer for injections. .

If you have taken this Course, and the other master Injector expert class– look for our Facial cadaver course that we will offer twice a year to really make you THE AESTHETIC MASTER
