    More and more people are turning to PDO threads as a viable way to lift and tighten their skin. PDO thread lifts are a great non-surgical option for those who are not a candidate for a traditional facelift, which requires surgery and has a long recovery time, or for those who are looking for a cheaper alternative.

    Using PDO threads, aesthetic medicine practitioners are able to help patients achieve skin that is youthful looking by “lifting” it up, while also stimulating the production of collagen for long-term results.

    While PDO threads are dissolvable in the body, some people wonder how they might be able to dissolve PDO threads faster. 

    Please not that for maximum benefit, patients should not try to break them down faster. The longer the thread is present the longer neocologenisis will occur within the body producing collagen.

    If you do still wish to dissolve the threads faster please read on. Below, we’ll look into that aspect of PDO threads to see if it’s possible, and what can be done.

    What Happens After PDO Threads are Inserted?

    PDO threads are a thread like material made out of the same substance as surgical sutures that are inserted into your body by an aesthetic medicine practitioner to achieve certain results. They are made of polydioxanone, which over time is absorbed by the body.

    This means that, unlike traditional sutures or stitches, they never have to be removed. They are completely safe to be inserted into your body and will be broken down, absorbed and finally metabolized.

    This is one of the biggest benefits of PDO threads. It’s a procedure that requires just one visit to an office (although most patients should always be seen for a follow up). Plus, it takes less than an hour to complete, which is why it’s often referred to as the lunchtime facelift.

    How Long Does It Take PDO Threads to Dissolve?

    The time it takes for the body to naturally dissolve PDO threads depends on a number of factors. The thicker the threads that are used, the longer they might take to dissolve.

    At the same time, a person’s age, their typical immune system response, their lifestyle and where on the body the threads are inserted all play a part in how long the threads take to dissolve.

    For instance, if the threads are inserted in areas that move more often, including near the mouth, then the threads will typically dissolve faster. Likewise, patients who are younger and have a faster metabolism typically break down the threads quicker than others.

    Behaviors such as consuming alcohol, smoking and having high levels of stress all could contribute to slowing down the rate at which the PDO threads dissolve.

    Even though the body will naturally dissolve PDO threads over time, many patients desire to speed up this process. Luckily, there are some things that can be done to speed up the process by which PDO threads are dissolved. Bear in mind that dissolving the threads faster may shorten the amount of time you experience the benefits of the PDO Threads.

    How to Dissolve PDO Threads Faster


    One way to potentially dissolve PDO threads faster is by injecting hyaluronidase in the same treatment area. That’s because it is an enzyme that works to break down hyaluronic acid, which is contained in the PDO threads.

    This is something that should only be done by a licensed medical professional, though. You need to be careful when injecting hyaluronidase, as you don’t want to break down the natural hyaluronic acid that’s found in your body.

    Your body needs hyaluronic acid to operate, and it benefits the overall look and feel of your skin.

    Generally, Hyaluronidase would only be used to remove the threads in the rare case of complication from the original procedure.

    Vitamin C

    Another potentially effective way to dissolve PDO threads faster is to take Vitamin C. Also known as ascorbic acid, Vitamin C is known to speed up the PDO thread breakdown process. The reason for this is that Vitamin C ultimately promotes synthesis of collagen, which in turn breaks the PDO threads down.

    The nice thing about Vitamin C in this application is that, in addition to being available as an injectable solution, it can also be applied topically to the area. This means it’s a safe thing to do on your own at home.

    Heat and Massage Therapy

    A final way to dissolve PDO threads faster is something that’s simple and can be done at home — heat and massage therapy.

    Applying heat to the treatment area helps to increase blood flow, which will help the body break the PDO threads down. The same concept is true of massaging the area.

    The heat and/or massage therapy will help the body to metabolize the PDO threads faster and fully absorb them into your body.

    Consult with a Medical Provider

    These are all potentially effective ways to dissolve PDO threads faster and, as a result, achieve the end results in a quicker, more efficient way. Before you do any of these techniques on your own, though, it’s important to consult with a medical provider.

    They can help determine whether these techniques are something that are, first and foremost, safe for you to do and whether they would be effective at achieving your desired outcome.

    By getting your PDO threads lift at a licensed and reputable provider who uses V Soft Lift’s products, you’ll be ensuring that you get the best results in the quickest amount of time.
