The technique itself is ideal for the aesthetic practitioner (Physician, Nurse Practitioner, PA, check applicable state laws) because of the relative simplicity in learning the technique, the excellent safety profile, and the significant revenue associated with the technique itself. Empire remains the most sought after educational organization for Thread Lift Training and has already certified thousands of practitioners. Our thread lift courses are not only taught by Top Physician instructors (which is the only responsible way to train on threads, beware of non-physician instructors!), but also we are not supported or backed by any ONE thread lift supplier like most other trainers. The advantage to this kind of non-biased training is that the practitioner will not only be able to decide for himself which thread product is the best or suitable for his practice, but, can also learn the benefits of each of the thread products over the other. There is no one product which can do everything (in spite of what may be said) and the Empire course will teach you how to choose the best thread for the procedure and the individual patient.
