Solid Filler PDO ThreadLift

Come to the #1 Solid Filler PDO Thread Live Patient Training Courses for Dental and Medical Professionals.

This Is The #1 Most Comprehensive Solid Filler PDO Thread Training Course Available!

The AAFE solid filler Polydioxanone (PDO) lifting and smoothing thread therapy protocol is a non-surgical, minimally invasive material and technique to generate the patient’s natural collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid production offering a natural looking smoothing and lifting of the face lasting up to 1-2 years. PDO absorbable sutures have long been used in pediatric cardiac surgery, neurosurgery and orthopedic surgery for re-approximation of cutaneous and subcutaneous tissues for over 30 years. These PDO suture threads meet all the requirements of safety and efficacy established by the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) for suturing.

Solid filler PDO thread therapy provide an immediate visible lift, smoothing and bio-stimulation of collagen production through neocollagenesis giving the patient lasting results for up to 12 – 24 months depending on the patient’s lifestyle. This treatment provides neovascularization providing skin rejuvenation and bio-stimulation, increase in facial volume, better lip and smile lines, enhances skin tone, skin and pore tightening. This can be combined and compliments many existing injectable modalities with very few contraindications, side effects, and no to minimal down time.

PDO absorbable therapy by itself or combined with botulinum toxin, dermal fillers and platelet rich plasma (PRP). Now every clinician has an excellent treatment option for patients with sagging skin and collagen loss in the middle to lower face which adversely affects the lip, smile and jaw lines from an esthetic and functional perspective. Patient areas of treatment include sculpting, lifting, and skin tightening of the glabellar region, crow’s feet, mid-face, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, jawline, jowl and neck areas.
