Here are a few FAQ's with respect to PDO threads for hair loss -
Q: What are PDO threads for hair loss?
A:PDO (Polydioxanone) threads are a type of absorbable suture used in aesthetic procedures. In the context of hair loss, these threads are inserted into the scalp to stimulate collagen production and provide structural support to promote hair growth.
Q: How do PDO threads work for hair loss?
A: PDO threads work by inducing a controlled inflammatory response, prompting the body to produce collagen. This collagen helps to strengthen and rejuvenate the skin and underlying tissues, promoting a healthier environment for hair follicles to thrive.
Q: What is the procedure like?
A: The procedure involves the insertion of PDO threads into the scalp using a thin needle or cannula. The threads create a supportive matrix for the tissue, addressing the effects of hair loss. Local anesthesia is typically administered to minimize discomfort.
Q: Are PDO threads effective for treating hair loss?
A: Some studies suggest that PDO threads may have a positive impact on hair growth by improving blood circulation and collagen synthesis. However, individual results can vary, and the effectiveness of PDO threads for hair loss is still an area of ongoing research.
Q: How long does the effect of PDO threads last?
A: The duration of results can vary from person to person. While some individuals may experience a noticeable improvement in hair thickness and quality, maintenance sessions may be recommended to sustain the effects over time.
Q: What are the potential side effects?
A: Common side effects include swelling, bruising, and mild discomfort at the insertion sites. Serious complications are rare but may include infection or migration of threads. It's crucial to consult with a qualified and experienced practitioner to minimize risks.
Q: Who is a suitable candidate for PDO threads for hair loss?
A: PDO threads may be considered for individuals experiencing mild to moderate hair loss and looking for a non-surgical option.
