PDO Scalp Threading Treatment

Utilizing an entire section, or strip, of hair with the thickest hair growth, in the designated treatment area. The two sections of divided scalp are then stapled together towards a complete Hair Restoration transformation.


PDO Scalp PDO Threading or Polydioxanone has been a popular treatment, used for wrinkle reduction, facelifts, and rejuvenation. At present, this cosmetic procedure is quite famous in Asian countries, especially South Korea.

Polydioxanone filament is made from polyester. This synthetic absorbable suture is considered safe to use. Its use has been prevalent in many surgical practices for decades. Some scientists tested these threads for hair loss treatment. During these tests, they embedded these safe sutures with absorbable polyglycolic acid PGA.

In recent times, doctors have started using TET, Thread Embedding Therapy for hair growth. This therapy has got different names that well describe the technology behind this treatment. Some familiar names are threading, polydioxanone monofilament threads, and thread lifting. There are tons of online reviews of these treatments where customers shared their experiences when they tried such a procedure for facial rejuvenation purposes.

Polydioxanone Monofilament Threads and Hair Treatment

PDO is an acronym for Polydioxanone. Everyone is quite aware of the surgical sutures that are made of the same kind of biocompatible and bioabsorbable material. The logic of using PDO threads for hair growth is precisely similar to its logic of using it as a surgical suture for hair growth and wound healing purposes. This procedure has the same connection to micro-needling and derma rolling procedures. Once the PDO threading procedure completes, then the hair thread and its related wound start working. This procedure is known to stimulate collagen regeneration, a boost in blood flood, and also subtle improvement in the blood circulation process. As scalp skin is disrupted, therefore growth factors amplify.

PDO threading renders significant results as this procedure not only activates fibroblasts and elastin but also enhances gene expression related to hair growth.

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.

Benefits of PDO

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.

Another study was conducted on PDO Thread Treatment for hair loss in December 2019 in Egypt. 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.
