What is our PDO Thread Course?
Our PDO Thread Course will ensure that you are fully qualified to offer this treatment safely and effectively on your menu. PDO Threads are inserted into the dermis layer of the skin to give clients an immediate effective face lift without the need for surgery. These threads will promote the production of collagen and elastin under the skin to create a more youthful look. They typically last around 12 – 18 months before naturally dissolving into the body. This course will cover areas such as the neck, jawline, marionette lines and nasolabial folds.
