Course General Information & Purpose

How the Best Doctors and Mid-Levels Learn PDO Thread Lift Techniques

Nobody learns how to perform thread lifting procedures in their basic medical or nursing education.  These PDO Thread Lift procedures do not belong to any one specialty or group of providers.  For over a decade, PracticalCME has provided inclusive aesthetic training courses for all eligible practitioners.  Hands-On training in PDO Thread Lifting (NovaThreads, MINT Lift) is our latest addition.  It is our goal to provide you safe, evidence-based certification training before, during, and after the live hands-on training date.  Our physician faculty members will continue to support you while you transition from student to provider in these services.

With our unique FAST TRACK™ Botox classes you are ready to practice your new procedure in 3 easy steps…

  1. Watch the narrated online content at your own pace.
  2. Attend the live review of the protocols, Q&A, and hands-on training
  3. Begin practicing and re-review the online content when necessary

Over 98% of our attendees rate our aesthetic training courses “excellent” and would recommend PracticalCME’s PDO thread lift certification to a friend or colleague.
