PDO Thread Lift Training-Face and Neck
Master class for clinicians who have completed the foundation dermal filler and botox training courses. It is also recommended that you complete an advanced botox and dermal filler course before attending the PDO Thread Lift Training.
The PDO thread course is in 2 stages. Stage one will teach you how to lift the lower and mid face, stage two will teach the neck and upper face. Each stage is a one day course.
Most mature face due to skin laxity need multiple treatments. The face may require dermal filler for specific indications such as lips, cheeks and deep folds. However there are other facial problems that cannot be treated with dermal fillers since the cost is too high . This is a more cost effective treatment if the patient requires multiple solutions to achieve ultimate results.
What is the PDO thread lift treatment ?
The PDO thread can be inserted into the subdermal tissue for temporary support of the face and body. It is a less invasive treatment than surgical methods used to lift the face. The pdo thread is placed into the subdermal tissue to create a lifting effect that will reduce lines and enhance the shape.
What type of threads are used on the course?
The Mono dissolvable threads, cog and barbed threads are covered during this course. We will be using the RegenAlift PDO product for the practical workshop.
Do candidates need to bring a patient?
No, we provide all your patients for the practical workshop.
How long do the results last?
The PDO mono sutures are slowly resorbed over time with complete absorption after 200 days. Results are seen immediately after plus improvement over the following 3 to 4 months, depending upon the health of the skin. Providing a touch-up after 9 months can increase the longevity of the correction. The PDO cog and barb treatment can last 2-3 years.
