Absorbable PDO Threads by AIAM Trainings

Absorbable PDO Threads

Polydioxanone (PDO) sutures are used for biomedical applications, particularly in cardiothoracic surgery because it is fully absorbed by hydrolysis within 4 to 6 months and doesn’t create any scar tissue. The foreign body stimulates collagen synthesis and the skin structure created will hold for another 12 to 15 months.

Filler Injections with Microcannulas by AIAM Trainings

Filler Injections with Microcannulas

Compared to a sharp needle, blunt microcannulas do not cut through nerves and vessels. The procedure consists of a single point of entry but allows wider coverage and better stimulation for new collagen production. This painless procedure doesn’t create any ecchymosis, meaning that there is no downtime or social exclusion.

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) by AIAM Trainings

Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF)

Learn why PRF is the natural evolution of PRP.
The Platelet-Rich Fibrin (PRF) technique uses the most advanced Blood Concentrate technology to generate a Fibrin Matrix rich in Platelets, Leukocytes, and Mesenchymal stem cells. This results in the constant release of growth factors and interleukins for 10-12 days.

Combined Aesthetic Trainings by AIAM Trainings

Combined Aesthetic Trainings

Our all-time best selling training!
Combining PDO Threads to lift the midface and lower third, and then simultaneously injecting HA fillers mixed with PRF, using a blunt microcannula for periocular, cheek, and perioral injections. This combined procedure will assure you to get the most impressive results.

TESTIMONIALS

  • “My experience with Neethi on facial assessment, clinical application and insertion of threads was excellent. I chose to have one on one training in the private setting of my office. Neethi is an accomplished injector and took me step by step through the process of using barb, smooth and twist threads to create a more V-shaped jawline. My three models were ecstatic with their results. I have confidently and safely introduced PDO Threads into my practice with impressive clinical outcomes. Neethi additionally provided post-training coaching, reviewing before and after pictures and giving me her stamp of approval. I would highly recommend Neethi. She is dynamic, thorough, caring, conscientious and a true professional.”
