About the course

This unique Intermediate course focuses on the “5 Point Face Lift Technique”, invented by Dr. Jacques Otto.

Practitioners will be trained to use, Twin Mono PDOs, Mono Eye Cannula and 6D Barbed Cannula Cogs.

The course begins with an introduction to PDO threads, including the history of thread lifting as well as anatomy, procedures, mechanisms, side effects and protocols, among other topics.

Dr Jacques Otto will then explain the rationale behind his “5 Point Face Lift Technique”, and why so many practitioners, and trainers for other companies including our competitors, have adopted this technique globally. He will cover the core fundamentals and important points to note, in order that practitioners understand the technique and get the best possible results for patients.

A variety of procedures and techniques will be taught during the day covering a full face lift using 6D Barbed Cannula Cogs, tightening of the double chin area (using Cogs) and Tear Trough rejuvenation using our Cannula Mono.

Please note this course is intense and in depth, therefore class sizes are limited to 3 practitioners per sessions. From our experience, as the leading training provider in this field, we do not believe that practitioners can get enough experience or understanding of the techniques when classes contain more than 3 individuals.
