NEW! - Absorbable PDO Threads Training Workshop*
Facilitated by: Marianne Azneer, PA-C, International Injectables Trainer;
Dr. Bonnie Rae, DMD, National Injectables Trainer
This revolutionary workshop features training on Absorbable PDO threads, an innovative, minimally invasive & effective aesthetic 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.
The procedure is performed in-office without any anesthesia. The treated area then mounts a controlled inflammatory response to the threads to provide the desired effect. Each participant will have the opportunity to participate in treatment and observe various cases for maximum learning during the 4.5 hour workshop.
*Advanced Practitioners Only
Absorbable PDO threads used during training will be supplied by Sponsor CosmoFrance. Certificate of completion will be supplied to each attendee as part of the registration fee.
