PDO thread lifting is becoming increasingly popular as patients seek more convenient, effective, and long-lasting face rejuvenation procedures. This ground-breaking method provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attain practically instant benefits that improve over time. While this treatment has seen a boost in popularity, many may think if there’s a way that the threads can come off quickly so that the way their skin feels returns to normal.
But how can you make PDO threads dissolve faster? Some have suggested fractional laser treatments to dissolve them. While there’s a possibility that this could help, you wouldn’t want to take that huge of risk - it might even stop you from getting the results that you want. As the threads naturally dissolve after 6 to 9 months, what you can do right now is to just avoid touching it, doing strenuous activities, or sleeping in certain positions.

For comprehensive face rejuvenation, medical professionals recommend PRP, microneedling with PRP facial, neuromodulators like Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin, and conventional fillers can be combined. PRP may aid in the speedy recovery of thread lift damage.
A cosmetic treatment should be done separately and at various periods, preferably 4 to 6 months after the initial procedure and 6 to 12 months between any further treatments done. Surgical facelifts are frequently used in conjunction with CO2 laser, peels, and other procedures. Be sure to consult your surgeon first before attempting any additional treatments or thread lift procedures.
Even after the threads have dissolved, your skin may seem firmer, tighter, and younger than before your thread lift. This is because PDO threads promote collagen production. However, to preserve the elevated appearance attained by PDO threading, further treatments will be required 1 to 2 times a year.
In between thread lifts, many patients use injectable dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers, non-surgical skin tightening, and other facial rejuvenation procedures to maintain their beautiful new complexion.
The threads provide support to elevate the skin into its new position, thus, your skin is quickly lifted following a PDO thread lifting surgery. Your face may appear somewhat tighter than how it will be after the complete recovery phase at first, but after approximately a week, your face will feel much more natural, allowing your full range of facial expressions prior to the thread lift.
After 1 to 2 months, the rejuvenating benefits become noticeable, with improved skin texture, and firmer and smoother skin. Depending on your operation, your doctor may focus more on skin renewal or skin lifting. The results will vary from person to person depending on the approach that was used by your surgeon.
The threads would disintegrate in around 9 months following treatment, but the effects would last much longer. It's recommended by most surgeons to repeat the treatment 6 to 9 months after the first for a 3-year outcome.
This procedure is shockingly risk-free. In comparison to fillers, the adverse effects are far less severe as fillers can even cause harm to skin and blindness. Many of the negative effects associated with previous thread lifting techniques, such as infection and thread breakage, are also reduced since PDO threads are put by needles rather than surgery and are absorbed after 6 to 8 months.
Bruising may or may not occur depending on the threads used and the locations treated. There is little to no bruising with the High Definition K-Lift - just expect slight swelling and pain for 3 to 5 days following the surgery, as well as a mild tightness sensation for up to 2 weeks. Mild dimpling of the skin can also happen, although it only lasts a few days.
Some of the adverse effects are connected to the insertion method and the threads utilized. Surface depressions, thread migration and even extrusion, facial asymmetry, long-term discomfort, and long-term dimpling are all examples. PDO threads are not all made equal, and your doctor's experience with the operation is critical to achieving a positive outcome with minimal side effects.
It’s good to note that more significant adverse effects can develop, albeit rare. Infection, nerve injury, nodule growth, and salivary duct damage are among them. The anatomical anatomy of the face is quite complicated. To do a PDO thread lift properly and avoid major side effects, intimate anatomical expertise is essential.
To get a natural lifting outcome, the PDO Thread Lift can be paired with additional treatments such as HIFU or Ulthera. It works particularly well with bio-stimulating fillers like Radiesse and hyaluronic acid fillers to create a full anti-aging solution that now allows us to turn back the clock for our patients without surgery like never before.
A PDO thread lift has a short recovery time. For the first 24 to 48 hours, you may have some swelling and bruising, but you may resume most of your usual activities immediately. To avoid accidentally dislodging the thread, avoid scratching your face during the first week following the treatment. For the first few weeks, you'll probably be recommended to avoid pursing your lips, smoking, and to drink via a straw.
For the first several weeks after the treatment, it's recommended that you avoid touching your face. The sutures can be disturbed by abrasive activity on the skin's surface, resulting in less-than-ideal outcomes. To allow the sutures to settle properly, you should attempt to limit your face movements as much as possible.
When recovering from a thread lift, some sleeping postures are preferable to others. During the first several weeks, try not to sleep on your side. Sleep on your back, slightly propped on a pillow. Sleeping on your stomach with your head raised on a cushion can assist you in avoiding rolling onto your face in the middle of the night.
Extremely strenuous exercise may disrupt the delicate healing process that occurs beneath the skin after a thread lift. As a result, for roughly a week, you should refrain from doing high-intensity interval training, circuits, sprints, or other strenuous workouts.
