A little background on PDO hair loss treatment
PDO thread hair loss treatment involves the insertion of tiny needles into the scalp, through which small threads called polydioxanone (PDO) are inserted into the scalp. These threads stimulate collagen production, leading to increased blood flow to the scalp and hair, which stimulates hair growth. The treatment is minimally invasive and has been found to be effective in treating hair loss in both men and women.
PDO (polydioxanone) threads have been used in aesthetic medicine for years for rejuvenation of skin, skin tightening, skin lifting, and wrinkle reduction. Hair regrowth in patients with hair loss from androgenetic alopecia has been observed in patients who had PDO threads inserted into their scalps.
Continued research will help determine how long the results of PDO Threads last and which candidates are likely to have the best hair regrowth effects, so far the results have been very encouraging with patients reporting significant reduction in hair loss. The non-surgical application of PDO threads into the scalp is a relatively safe and comfortable out-patient procedure with no downtime or aftercare.
From a cost point the PDO procedure using threads for hair regrowth may help prevent or postpone the need for hair transplantation. They may also be used for stopping, slowing, or reversing hair loss in conjunction with other treatments such as minoxidil, finasteride, low-level laser therapy, PRP platelet-rich plasma, Regenera Activa and other cell therapy treatments.
Benefits of PDO
In June 2017, a study was conducted on the use of Polydioxanone thread for hair growth. The subjects of the study were five male patients who were encountering hair loss due to Androgenetic Alopecia. The 30-millimeter PDO microfilament threads were used for every subject of this medical research. Every individual got 20-40 threads on his scalp.
After 12 weeks of this PDO Threading treatment, a boost happened in the hair count of all five patients. A noteworthy point is that every patient used either Finasteride or Minoxidil, but they didn’t see any hair growth from those medications. According to the findings of this study, PDO offers high retention strength alongside the right amount of flexibility. Due to its non-allergic reactions, it is safe to use. These threads are known to feature with a slow absorption rate of six to eight months.
The bottom line of that study made it clear that when a patient is treated with a combo treatment of poly-l-lactic acid micro thread therapy and minoxidil, then an improvement in hair density, appearance, and thickness happens. This combination offers better results than using minoxidil alone.
PDO thread hair loss treatment is becoming increasingly popular among adults trying to stop hair loss. Hair loss can affect a person’s self-esteem and confidence, and for young adults, it can be particularly challenging. With the availability of PDO thread hair loss treatment, there is now a non-surgical solution to hair loss.
Effectiveness of PDO thread hair loss treatment
Several studies have found PDO thread hair loss treatment to be effective in treating hair loss. One study found that PDO thread hair loss treatment resulted in a significant increase in hair density and thickness. Another study found that the treatment resulted in a significant improvement in hair growth and hair thickness in patients with androgenetic alopecia, a common form of hair loss.
PDO thread hair loss treatment is particularly effective among young adults who are experiencing hair loss due to stress, poor diet, or medication side effects. Hair loss among adults can be exacerbated by stress, poor sleep, and unbalanced diets. PDO thread hair loss treatment can help to reverse the effects of stress and poor diet by stimulating hair growth.
Safety and risks
PDO thread hair loss treatment is generally safe, with minimal risks. However, as with any medical procedure, there are risks associated with the treatment. These include infection, bleeding, and scarring. It is important to choose a registered and qualified practitioner to perform the treatment to ensure safety.
