PDO Thread Lift Program Objectives

Our 2-day course on PDO threads includes didactic and hands-on training.

The Benefits of PDO Threads

PDO threads are an excellent treatment option for clients who aren’t ready for a face lift surgery. This non-surgical face lift utilizes monofilament fibers, which dissolve over time, to lift and reposition the skin in order to accentuate the cheeks, diminish the jowls and tighten the jawline.

This medical aesthetic treatment can be combined with Botox, dermal fillers and other injectables to achieve optimal results. The procedure takes 30 minutes or less to perform and the side effects are mild as recovery time is minimal. It takes 4-6 months to fully absorb the sutures as the skin heals/builds collagen.

The benefits of PDO threads include:

  • New collagen stimulation
  • Increased skin rejuvenation
  • Skin lifting and brightened skin tone
  • Instant and sustained increase in volume
  • Improvement in skin wrinkles for 12 to 18 months
  • No surgery and minimal downtime

Why Medical Professionals Choose NLI

The Botox and fillers class offered a lot of hands-on experience. I gained a great deal of confidence in my ability to perform treatments, especially since the instructors are right there to guide and encourage you.

Eva S. Estes RN

Absolutely loved my experience. I learned so much and am excited about this journey of doing Botox and fillers. I am definitely planning on taking more classes. I would recommend your classes to anyone inquiring about aesthetics! Thank you so much!

Mary Beth Medina, MSN FNP-C

National Laser Institute took me from a RN with 0 experience or knowledge in medical spa knowledge to a RN that feels confident performing services to the community in my hometown in Northern Canada. There is little opportunity here to experience these services, and I’m so happy I can bring my knowledge and treatments here. Thank you, National Laser Institute!
