About the course

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

You 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 their patients.

Your one to one hands on training consists of a variety of techniques and you will be required to insert: 10 x 6D Barbed Cannula Cogs, 10 x Tear Trough Cannula PDO’s, 30 x Mono PDO’s into your models face.

Our intermediate course will teach you how to use PDO threads to create an instant face lift and encourage skin rejuvenation in the tear trough and cheek/naso-labial areas.

Please note this course is intense and in depth, therefore class sizes are limited to one practitioner per session. 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 with larger class sizes.
