Course Overview:


The rise of non-invasive procedures has shifted the aesthetic culture. Patients now are asking for less invasive, less painful, less expensive procedures with short recovery times. Thread-lifts are one of the newest approaches to nonsurgical facial lifting & tightening.

It is an easy, fast, in-office procedure in which absorbable barbed or unbarbed suture thread is inserted into the skin through a very small incision, for the purpose of full-face rejuvenation & lifting. The latest techniques can even provide lifting for the nose region, rejuvenation of the under-eye area, as well as the correction of the lip border lines. 


Similar to fillers that provide a “liquid face-lift,” the downtime is minimal. Offering thread lifting for your practice is a natural progression of services needed for a successful aesthetic practice as these procedures are gaining significant popularity among patients day by day.

The cost of thread lifting procedure costs an average of 1,500 - 4,000 USD and can easily be incorporated with your other aesthetic offerings in the practice. The cost to incorporate thread lifting within your practice is relatively small as it is a heavily technique-based procedure. And, patient satisfaction concerning this new procedure is very high because of the results that are able to be achieved.
