3rd WORLD DERMATOLOGY AND COSMETOLOGY CONGRESS
April 11-12, 2019 | Barcelona, Spain

Keynote : Res Clin Dermatol
Polydioxanone (PDO) threads have become an emerging trend for facial rejuvenation. The entire basis of the thread lift technique is the foreign body cutaneous response to the presence of threads within the skin. Androgenetic alopecia may result in disturbed self-perception and psychosocial interaction. Various treatment modalities like oral finasteride, topical minoxidil and platelet rich plasma have been tried with good therapeutic benefit. Herein we determine the efficacy & safety of polydioxanone threads in five patients suffering from hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia and not responding to 6 months therapy with minoxidil and finasteride.
