PDO Thread Insertion procedure for hair regrowth, from the United States. 

PDO (polydioxanone) is a slowly absorbing synthetic surgical suture material used in the “lunchtime, Non-surgical facelift”. PDO threads stimulate collagen production, elastin, hyaluronic acid and also activates fibroblasts. FDA-cleared PDO sutures have been used safely in surgery for decades and more recently have become very popular in aesthetic medicine for skin rejuvenation and wrinkle reduction. 

PDO First in South Africa

Medical Hair Restoration is the first in South Africa to make use of PDO threading for Hair Regrowth.

PDO Hair Rejuvenation therapy is a painless “lunchtime” procedure that works to stimulate hair regrowth through the release of growth factors and increased blood flow.

Initial improvements have been noted in as little as three months and continued through six months and beyond. 

Proven Effectiveness of PDO

PDO research supports its use for stopping, slowing or reversing hair loss.

PDO can be used as a stand-alone hair growth treatment or in conjunction with MHR’s unique PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Protocol FR-8.

The PDO Process

The PDO process is performed under painless local anaesthesia by aseptically inserting PDO Threads into the scalp of the thinning areas to stimulate hair regrowth by rejuvenating weakened follicles. The material slowly and safely dissolves over 6 -8 months. 

This breakthrough outpatient non-surgical treatment requires no recovery, no downtime, no aftercare, and no activity restrictions. “Finding a new use for a product like PDO that already has such a long track record of safety in millions of patients worldwide is exciting. We are thrilled to share the results we’ve achieved with this new technology with our colleagues in the medical community as well as those who are suffering from debilitating hair loss and those who want thicker healthier hair.”
