Absorbable PDO Threads Training Workshop*

1:30 PM - 5:30 PM | Afternoon Workshop

Facilitated by: Dr. Kian Karimi, MD, FACS; Marianne Azneer, PA-C, International Injectables Trainer

This advanced workshop features training on Absorbable PDO (Polydiaxanone) threads, an innovative, minimally invasive & effective technique to achieve, safe in-office tightening and repositioning of the skin. PDO threads are placed in the superficial tissues to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue. The procedure requires no surgical skills and delivers great results with virtually no complications. The threads are placed in the superficial tissues and can be used anywhere on the face and body. 

In addition to being ideal for lifting the skin, threads combat aging in another way: by provoking the body’s “healing response” and causing the body to direct large surges of collagen to treated areas.  Each participant will have the opportunity to participate in treatment and observe various cases for maximum learning during the 4 hour workshop.

*Advanced Practitioners Only. Certificate of completion will be supplied to each attendee as part of the registration fee.

This innovative workshop features training on the latest advancements for Absorbable PDO threads, an innovative, minimally invasive & effective  technique to lift and tighten sagging skin tissue. This workshop training will show participants various techniques using basic (Nu-Mesh) PDO threads. These new non-invasive procedures consist of using absorbable PDO (Polydiaxanone) threads to achieve safe, in-office tightening and repositioning of the skin. The procedure requires no surgical skills and delivers great results with virtually no complications. The threads are placed in the superficial tissues and can be used anywhere on the face and body.
