Zara, please tell us a little about PDO threads. First of all, hi guys. As I promised I am back on YouTube channel for CRMC Aesthetics and today I will talk about PDO threads. Why we chose as a topic PDO threads because that’s the really treatment which is gaining popularity. And much more requests we’re having daily to do PDO threads. So what does it mean PDO threads? What it stands for? PDO threads stands for Polydioxanone threads. Polydioxanone is the material that’s used in the surgeries for years. It’s kind of used for the sutures. It’s self degradable materials that will biodegrade in three to four months in the body but it will leave the trace of collagen behind it. In aesthetics we’re using it to achieve results as a lifting, smoothing out. We can just do a bunch of different things with the help of PDO and it’s more considered I think like a PRP more organic approach. People who’s not ready for the fillers And also as I told before all these procedures they really married to each other. You don’t always want to use only fillers or only threads. You want to really mix and match to deliver the best results. And PDO is a very important tool that I think aesthetic providers should have in their office. So where are the most popular places on the face that you use PDO threads? And what are you trying to achieve with them? With the help of PDO threads we can achieve facial lifting, eyebrow shape changing, or like now it’s very popular after after Bella Hadid changed the shape of her eyes. I don’t know how she did, but they look gorgeous. I am having more and more requests for that cat eye look that I’m just very safely delivering. I think I’m delivering really good results with the help of the PDO threads and also with the help of PDO threads I can lift the lower part of the face by giving more defined contour that will give you a more uplifted look without using any fillers. Also, there are different threads that can help me to achieve more tighter looking skin by creating mesh under the skin with the help of the threads that will stimulate in return collagen. What are the two or three most popular areas you treat with threading? I think not as I mentioned not only cat eye lift but the eyebrow lift in general. With the help of threads I can just change the shape of the nose to make it more uplifted more defined. I think like the lip flip with the help of threads it’s something that I’m doing very often
too. And of course I am doing it on a daily basis facial contouring with the threads. How quickly do you see results from the PDO threads and how long do the results last? Results from the PDO threads can be seen immediately and more time that goes by the better results your patients should expect. Usually the most of the results patients should expect about 60 to 90 days after the procedure. If they wish to repeat and just get even more enhanced results I always recommend them to come back in 6 months but not sooner than that because knew collagen production is still going on. Most we’re having about 60 to 90 days, but let’s not over treat. I always want the patients to be not over treated but to have the most natural results possible. What would you say is the average length of results lasting? The average results will last about 18 months. Less or more, it really depends what the beginning like starting condition of the skin was but they expect to last about 18 months. There is also different type of threads like people asking me why some threads cost less, others more. It really depends what type of threads are used and basically, all the treatments are a combination of different threads. So there is a threads that create a mesh of collagen. Basically you’re putting them very superficially in the skin and they will literally create something like a mesh and in return will stimulate collagen and that is working as a carcass for the skin. There is a bigger thread that really contour and lifting threads. They’re called barb threads or poke threads. They cost more. And also there is a threads with the PLA polylactic acid that stimulates much more collagen compared to the mesh. There are so many different threads and everyday we’re learning more and more. I start learning it from my Korean patients. Actually I have a patient who looks amazing. He’s 60 years old, but he looks fantastic. And when I ask him, what’s the secret of his fabulous look, of course like maintenance procedures that he always does but also in Korea one Korean doctor placing in his face 700 threads. Big, short, long, combination, I don’t know but the amount was wow! Here we will never put so many but that really makes sense. More experience you’re getting, the more you know that you can just play. 700 threads, it’s not a scary number if they’re placed properly. I myself have been doing this for about five years now, four and a half. I’ve done a lot of procedures I literally doing them on the daily basis, as well I train other people. If you’re training, you want yourself to be educated. So that’s why I always just take classes, courses. I don’t know we’re sharing our experience with other providers, so oit’s very fascinating what we can do nowadays without plastic surgery or expanding the need of the plastic surgery.
