Advanced Cosmetic Long Threads workshop
Location: Level 2 16/18 Ellingworth Parade, Box Hill VIC 3128, Australia

This is a highly advanced course that teaches the use of long threads to achieve the classic ‘lunchtime face lift’. Sometimes, referred to as the popular ‘Thread Lift’. Long threads are specially designed to achieve a similar outcome as the conventional surgical facelift but without the long recovery time and with fewer associated complications. This minimally invasive technique involves inserting a thread under the skin to lift and pull the sagging skin to achieve a desirable youthful effect immediately that is long-lasting.
Upon completion of this workshop, you should be able to start offering long threads in your rooms with minimal set-up. Learning to perform long threads can help you tap into the growing aesthetics industry and its increasing consumer demand, and offer an additional service to your existing patient base.
1. Online Course
After enrolling, you will receive immediate lifetime access to the online component of the workshop. You may preview the course content at the bottom of this page. You will need to review the material and pass the tests to complete the course before attending the hands-on workshop. During this process, you are encouraged to reach out with any questions. Completing this course may also help you with applying for insurance if you have not already, and deliver proper informed consent to your model prior to the practical training.
2. Hands-On Workshop
The practical workshop will cover important theory information and focus mainly on the hands-on approach of the procedure where you will have the opportunity to treat your own patient. This includes treatment consultation and planning, choosing the appropriate product tailored to your patient, taking clinical photos and much more. This is carried out in an actual medical aesthetics clinic, where health and safety standards are met according to local regulatory guidelines.
3. Ongoing Mentorship
Aesthetics training requires more than just attending a workshop. You will need to build experience in order to ensure competency. After completing the workshop, you will have 6 months access to ongoing mentorship with our team of qualified trainers so that you have someone to reach out to should any challenges arise. You may also be able to come into their aesthetics practices to observe how real in-clinic treatments are carried out. This will open up more pathways to more advanced learning and help you build confidence in offering treatments independently.
