A PDO Thread Lift is designed to subtly lift the facial features to reduce fine lines, deepening facial folds, wrinkles, and sagging skin while encouraging collagen production for more volume in the treated areas. Think of this treatment as a non-surgical facelift.
The threads are actually absorbable sutures made of polydioxanone (PDO). PDO sutures have been used in procedures for many years, such as open-heart surgery, ensuring it is very safe to introduce to the body. Threads come in a variety of textures for customized treatments.
Common areas to treat are cheeks, jowls, nasolabial folds, marionette lines, neck, abdomen, chest/decollete, brows, forehead, knees, and scars.
At Naya, we don’t charge by the thread- — only by the area. We will use as many threads as necessary to get your desired results!

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY TREATMENT?
At Naya, we use Nova and Mint threads, the latest and most advanced form of PDO threads on the market. Before treatment starts, we will apply a topical numbing agent and local anesthetic to the treatment site. Then, your experienced provider makes a small opening through which needles with threads are inserted. The needle is then removed, and the thread is left suspended in place to lift the skin. When the threads are inserted, they cause the body to produce inflammation, which then signals the body to boost collagen production This is how the targeted areas not only lift but increase volume.
WHAT ARE THE POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF THE TREATMENT?
Bruising and swelling are common side effects of the procedure, as well as soreness in the areas treated for a couple of weeks post-procedure. You may want to sleep with your head raised the first couple of nights to reduce swelling. Sleeping on your back for the first week or so may be more comfortable post-procedure and ensures you don’t put too much pressure on one side of your face. Holding your mouth open for an excessive amount of time can affect the results of your treatment. As such, you should hold off on any dental treatments for the first month after your procedure.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
Results are immediately noticeable to you and will continue to increase over the next few months as the body fully absorbs the threads and builds collagen around the threads. Recent studies have shown a 20x increase in collagen with PDO threads. Results typically last between 12-24 months.
WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS?
