    Is the Combined Thread Lift & Cogs training course open to anyone?

    The course is open to doctors, dentists, nurses and prescribing pharmacists who have a minimum of 1 year's experience in aesthetic procedures and who have completed an advanced dermal fillers course.


This programme is limited to 2 delegates due to the intense nature of the course.

At Facethetics Training, we are lucky to have a close relationship with Intravita and Dr Jacques Otto, who is an expert practitioner in PDO threads. We are amongst the select few who sit on his expert panel for training in the PDO thread lift and we are also one of the only training providers to offer training in both the 5 Point and 10 Point Lift techniques developed by Dr Otto.


What areas of the face does PDO Threads & Cogs course cover?

This course teaches delegates how to use PDO threads and cogs for;

  • jawline lifting and tightening
  • neck and submental (double chin) tightening
  • smoothing of marionette lines
  • smoothing of nasolabial folds
  • smoothing of fine lines under the eye
  • 5 Point Cog Lift for mid face
  • Cog lift to neck


What type of threads are used for training?

The threads used during training are the neoDr threads, which we believe to be the best PDO threads available in the UK. Our tutors were amongst the first practitioners in the country to be trained in PDO threads and cogs and have tried a number of different brands over the years before selecting neoDr as their chosen brand. These threads are extremely effective as they are actually made up of two PDO threads plaited together and inserted into the needle, which gives a more noticeable and longer lasting result. This also minimises the total number of threads required per treatment. These are the only threads that are used in our training sessions.

Why choose Facethetics for PDO Thread Lift training?

  • In depth theory session covering all elements of the PDO threads and cogs procedure, including history of the treatment, anatomy, treatment indications and how to manage complications
  • Live demonstration carried out by Head Tutor Yvonne Senior, who was amongst the first practitioners in the country to be trained in PDO threads and who now sits on Dr Jacques Otto’s panel of experts.
  • Practical session allowing each delegate to carry out the procedure on a model (provided by Facethetics) under the guidance of our tutor.
  • Additional support and information on other matters such as patient consultations and insurance
  • Further learning available with our Threads & Cogs Masterclass

Pre-course reading

Once payment has been made by calling us on 0151 559 0865 or by bank transfer (bank details given upon receipt of application form), then all delegates will receive a comprehensive training manual in the post, which covers everything from different types of PDO threads and their uses to anatomical indications for treatment as well as the procedure itself. Delegates are strongly encouraged to familiarize themselves with the manual before the course.


The training day starts with a theory session, which consists of an interactive presentation from our Head Tutor, Yvonne Senior. The presentation will go into further detail about the material covered in the manual and also allow delegates to ask any questions which may have arisen from their pre-course reading.

Live demonstration

Following the theory session, delegates will watch as Yvonne performs a threads procedure on a model. This will include a full consultation with the patient, where Yvonne will analyse and assess the face for treatment. Again, we aim to keep this session interactive and encourage delegates to ask questions during the procedure.

Practical session

We feel that hands-on experience is absolutely vital during training, which is why we put a large focus on the practical session of the course. Following the live demonstration, delegates will each get the opportunity to carry out a threads procedure on a model. For ease of organisation and to ensure that models are suitable to have treatment, we provide the models for all of our training sessions. During the practical session, delegates will be carefully guided and supervised by Yvonne at all times. All materials used during the practical session are included as part of the course fee.

Additional support and advice

During training we will also offer advice and guidance on matters relating to the threads treatment, such as insurance, paperwork and where to purchase the required threads and equipment for treatments.

Our course is insured with Cosmetic Insure and we can put you in touch with the relevant contacts there should you wish to insured by them. We will also provide examples of paperwork for use in your own clinic, such as consent and consultation forms, as well as patient after care advice and face sheets.

Finally, we can also put you in touch with our threads suppliers, who, we believe offer the best quality threads available. These are the only threads we use both for training and in our own clinic. On the day, you will be able to purchase a starter kit of threads at a discounted rate and we will also provide you with a full price list and contact details to order further threads in the future.

Upon completion of the course, we are more than happy to answer any questions you may have about the treatment. The course goes into a lot of detail and we appreciate that you may have queries or may wish to clarify certain things once you return to your own clinics and start offering the treatment to your patients. Our team can be contacted via email and phone and will always endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.

Further learning

Once you are comfortable with the techniques and procedures covered in this course, you may wish to expand your skills further and offer your patients even more treatment areas such as neck tightening, brow lift and 10 Point Lift. These are all available as part of our Threads & Cogs Masterclass. Here at Facethetics Training we are at the forefront of the aesthetics industry and are often amongst the first to be able to offer training in new techniques and products. We will keep all of our previous delegates informed of advances within the industry and of any updated courses or master classes available with Facethetics.
