PDO Threads Training For Medical Professionals

PDO Threads Training for Medical Professionals

Are you a medical professional in search of a new cosmetic treatment to increase your earning potential?

In the past, PDO threads were favored by surgeons performing cardiothoracic surgery, because they dissolve within four to six months and don’t create scar tissue. Today, they are also used for aesthetic purposes.

National Laser Institute now offers a two-day PDO threads training course for physicians, nurses and medical professionals!

What is a PDO Thread Lift?

A PDO thread lift treatment lifts and tightens sagging skin tissue, using sutures made of Polydioxanone (PDO). When placed beneath the skin, the threads stimulate cellular rejuvenation and collagen growth. The procedure produces three effects in the skin: instant skin lifting, cellular renewal and skin tightening. The PDO threads will dissolve about six months after the procedure while the lifted facial contours will remain three to six months more, due to cellular rejuvenation.

There are two types of PDO threading techniques. Nu-Mesh creates a mesh under the skin using smooth or twisted threads in two or three different directions and creates a net under the skin that causes the body to create more collagen. It is used to treat areas like the neck, cheeks and lips. The Nu-Lyft method repositions and tightens the skin. A thread lift can be completed in just three easy steps!

  1. Patients are numbed with a lidocaine injection
  2. Then a small needle is used to place an “introducer” port in the treatment area
  3. Where a microcannula, pre-loaded with the threads, is inserted through the port and pushed through the subdermal layer of skin. As the cannula is retracted, the thread is left in place, creating a subtle lift.

PDO thread lifts are very versatile, allowing practically all areas of the face to be treated including the under-eye area, eyebrows, crow’s feet, cheeks, nasolabial folds, nasojugal folds, wrinkles around the mouth, jawline, jowls and neck. The treatment has several benefits:

  • Skin tightening and rejuvenation
  • Skin lifting and brightened skin tone
  • An instant and sustained increase in volume
  • Improvement in skin wrinkles for up to 12 to 18 months
  • No surgery and minimal downtime
