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.  Online training in PDO Thread Lifting (NovaThreads, MINT PDO) is our latest addition and is perfect for providers who might be joining an experienced practice.  Or it is great for providers who are already doing the procedure and need additional tips and tricks.  It is our goal to provide you safe, evidence-based certification training before, during, and after the course.  Our physician faculty members will continue to support you while you transition from student to provider in these services.

Over 98% of our attendees rate our aesthetic training courses “excellent” and would recommend PracticalCME to a friend or colleague.
