Our Training Program is designed to help you on your Master Injection journey! We want to take you on the journey with us to learning and growing together!
Training Program 1: Anyone (consultant role): Undoubtedly, the only requirement is a passion for beauty and art. Indeed, this program prepares non-medical persons to consult. Particularly, you can also recommend possible treatment options to customers. Additionally, this program can be for LVNs, MAs, Aestheticians, and anyone who feels they can be trained as a consultant. Furthermore, Program One can be redesigned and tailored for any group of students. Students may also use a design pen (but not a needle). Definitely, a licensed medical staff such as RN, NP, PA, or MA confirm the consultant’s work and perform treatments.
Training Program 2: Licensed medical person: Equslly important, this program prepares the participant to get the foundational information. Including hands-on experience to do basic botox, fillers, and lasers through the V-line series method. Understandably, if selected, students will become part of the team and be trained as “Master injectors”. Further, they may be further trained as “Master aesthetic trainers.”
Since the basis of aging is volume loss, then injection artists fill the:
5th layer | Bone and periosteum: recreate bony foundation.
Example: Ristow space and anterior maxillary region.
4th layer | Deep fat and ligament: reflate fat pad and support ligaments. Use higher G’* filler.
3rd layer | Muscles: lift lips/mouth corner elevator muscles via a lever-pulley system to maximize myomodulation effect. This results in maximal cheek and mouth corner lift.
2nd layer | Superficial fat: reposition fat pad.
Example: the inferior orbital fat pad can be repositioned upward to cover or camouflage the lower orbital rim to smooth out the lid-cheek junction and rejuvenate the eyes. Use lower G’ filler.
1st layer | skin: re-drapes skin envelope over bony fundament.
“Care” for patients.
“Loyalty” to the team and brand. (For students demonstrating strong leadership skills and applying for a job with VLA.)
In other words, our V-Line Series Training Program offers a one-on-one mentorship program through a high-level operating medical spa. Best of all, we are treating between sixty to ninety patients daily. Treated by a team of Medical Doctors, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Registered Nurses, and other supporting staff members. Finally this training program offers hands-on medical spa training experience to its students.

Specifically, what is V-Line Power Lift?
Accordingly, V-Line Power Lift is a specialized aesthetic procedure utilized to lift the face. Injecting via the artistic use of Fillers, PDO Threads, and Xeomin. With this exclusive technique delivers 3-D injection points on the face, recreating youthful contours such as defined jawlines and the natural v-line shape. Benefits include improved laugh lines, under-eye aging, and droopy mouth corners.
Also, what is V-Line Power Slim?
In short, V-Line Power Slim is a three-step procedure that shapes the jaw into a more slender, snatched, and defined shape.
1. Slim down jaw bulges with Botox Facial Slimming
Botox Facial Slimming is an “off-label” use of Botox, just as the forehead is “off-label,” but it is done commonly). This step takes an injection of 20-60u on each side of the cheek. Typical cases see facial slimming in less than two weeks, with results lasting up to 6 months.
2. Melt away cheek fat (buccal fat) with Kybella (off-label usage).
Hanging cheek fat is also known as buccal fat. With the aging process and gravity, the fat in the cheek gets pulled down to the corners of the mouth, creating a sad and tired look. Kybella injections can be used off-label to address this area. Treatment for this area generally takes 2 to 3 sessions a few weeks apart, with results fully present within four weeks.
3. Melt away chin fat with FDA-approved Kybella.
Kybella is an FDA-approved on-label treatment for double chins. Once the fat is gone from under the chin, you may consider tightening treatments as well, such as Ultherapy and Potenza.
(Consider Chin Extension with fillers to further enhance the results)
What is Lip Art?
Lip Art is a specialized technique used to craft youthful and natural lips through the artistic use of Fillers, PDO Threads, and Botox. Unlike other brands, the V-Line aesthetics applies the principle of Balance, Proportion, and Harmony to guide the injection artist to deliver safe and natural results with minimal discomfort.
What is Jawline Contour?
Students will learn to tighten the jawline with Btoxn A (microtox technique along the jawline), PDO Threads, and High G prime fillers. Jowl fat will be re-positioned back above the jaw line for a contoured, defined jaw profile. The mouth corner will be lifted as well.
A simplified and systematic way of injecting with the V-lift method.
Combining these three major regions will give the most natural V-lifting results.
ART and V-lifting
The trainee will be taught the technical properties, the artistic use of fillers, and the differentiating subtleties in anatomy.
1. Techniques: At least three different injection techniques will be taught for each facial region. The art is learning to decide which of the three, or a combination of two, or all three, is best for each unique anatomy. Learning just one way to treat every face will leave some happy, others, not as much. Additionally, the trainee will be instructed in the art of using needles, cannulas, and different needle gauges in specific areas for safe practice.
2. Filler personality and rheology: Learn the properties of each type of filler and decide when to use lifting fillers (thick viscous and elastic resisting compression), soft spreading fillers (flexible and cohesive), or a combination of the two. The student will learn about G prime, cohesivity, stretchability, and tissue integration of fillers. Further, the student will learn concentration, flexibility, viscoelasticity, cross-linking and expression technology, filler blending, and how to dissolve fillers effectively based on the above characteristics. Lastly, the trainee will learn which group of fillers are more hydrophilic, likely to cause facial edema or filler migration (eyes and lips are particularly vulnerable), and how to place them in the correct depth.
3. Anatomy: A patient’s gender, ethnicity, previous treatments, surgeries, and medical history all affect the biophysics of their facial anatomies, such as the muscles and fat pads. Discerning these variations allows the injection artist to produce the most natural result.
The Cannula course is ideal for aesthetic practitioners who already have basic knowledge of dermal filler injections and feel ready to develop their understanding of alternative techniques by exploring the use of the cannula. Learning to inject with a needle is the building block to aesthetic injection; however, for many procedures, mastering cannula techniques opens the door to quicker and safer results with less bruising, bleeding, discomfort, and ultimately fewer side effects, complications, and greater patient satisfaction. This course will explain the benefits of the cannula and what anatomic area is best for this approach.
V-Line 3D Contour: Forehead, Temple, Glabella Hollow, Nose, and Chin and submental region and A-frame deformity (hollow eye socket) correction.
Although each individual is unique, certain facial features are more common to some ethnicities than others. For example, Europeans tend to have more projected features than their Asian counterparts. V-Line 3-D contouring is a 3-step process that requires the strategic injections of fillers, such as Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, and Sculptra, in three different areas to make the central face more projected.
V-line 3D contouring is determined by three projected points:
V-line 3D contouring solves the following problems:
Learn how to use filler and threads and Botoxn A in the Glabella region in a very safe manner to treat wrinkles and depression to fill in for a smoother surface.
Learn how to elevate the nose tip, and smooth out the hump in the middle of the nose using fillers and threads. Learn how to narrow the nostril.
Learn how to extend or project the chin using fillers and erase wrinkles on the chin using blended fillers and Botox A. Learn the principle of rebalancing. Learn how to lift the face using fillers to weaken the lip depressor and jawline and give mechanical power to lip elevators.
PDO Threads using the “Vertical V line Power Lift” technique: Traditional Lift with PDO starts from the zygoma and down toward the mouth corner. With the unique “Vertical V line,” anchoring or fixation of threads is the primary objective. Anchoring can be achieved through deep fascia anchoring and cross-hatching technique using our unique Vectors (the L & V) and Vertical vectoring. Anchoring or fixation of threads provides long-lasting results keeping threads tension high even with exaggerated facial expressions.
Students will learn to assess zygomatic bone placement, anterior convexity, temple volume status, and jowl fat droopiness to determine which vectors receive more threads and fixation. Students will also learn to improve neck skin laxity through PDO lifting. Students will apply art (discern different facial shapes) to make sure the zygoma is not too pronounced or the face is not too wide after thread lift. Students will learn to combine fillers and threads alone with toxins to lift the face as well as how to avoid dimpling, bunching, thread protrusion, puckering, and migration and learn to fix those issues in case they happen.
Instalyft Sculptra Cone Threads
Students will learn when to use PDO vs. Cone threads and apply the above techniques to facial lifting. Furthermore, combining both kinds of threads at different layers of skin will be shown. Students will learn how to manage the side effects of cone threads and how to avoid them.
Students will learn to inject Botox to improve the necklace line, platysma band, neck lift, jaw lift and tightening using the “ microtox “ method. Students will learn how to blend fillers to be injected into the neck for collagen growth and wrinkles improvement.
Also, PDO threads for neck rejuvenation will be included in the training. The Microtox method will shrink pores and give skin a better shine.
Students will learn to use blended bio stimulators/fillers and Botox A to improve the appearance of the chest. Angel PDO threads can be used to enhance the result.
Students will learn how to inject the trapezius to relieve discomfort but to diminish the size of the upper shoulder for a more feminized appearance.
Hyperhidrosis (Sweating Underarm)
Students will learn how to inject Botox A to decrease excessive sweating in the armpit.
Students will learn to use blended radiesse for butt lift:
Botox A or Xeomin
Students will learn to use Botox A (Xeomin):
*Use of blended Radiesse and Sculptra will be taught to improve skin clarity, tone, and texture
Students interested in running a clinic eventually can apply to become part of the team. After the 7th year, you may be eligible to become an anchor practitioner. That means possibilities such as profit share, stakeholder, or establishing a new clinic with a brand unique to the practitioner. VLA Corporate will provide major funding, marketing, IT support, and operational and system support.
