PRFEdu 3-day Course on PDO Threads
This new 3-day program at Advanced PRF Education will teach clinicians regarding the safe use of Polydioxanone (PDO) sutures as strong and flexible biomaterials that are routinely used in aesthetics.
Around 2010, surgeons in Korea began using PDO sutures for cosmetic lifting and tightening. Approximately 4-6 months after insertion, they are degraded by the body’s immune system. However, the PDO material is a powerful collagen stimulant. This new collagen provides skin lifting and tightening that remains 10-15 months after treatment. Since 2010, PDO threading has gained worldwide popularity as patients seek treatments that are less invasive and safer than traditional plastic surgery. Companies are now also making absorbable sutures from Polycaprolactone (PCL) and Poly-L-Lactic acid (PLLA).
The course will also cover how to use the Bio-Filler (albumin gel in combination with liquid concentrated-PRF) to maximize the biostimulatory effect of both modalities when utilized in combination.
