TET – Thread embedded therapy with PRP

It uses Polydioxanone Threads which are dissolvable surgical sutures and are commonly used in medical procedures. It is given for hair regrowth. It involves the insertion of these threads into the scalp to stimulate hair growth. It is given alongside PRP.

How does it work?

After Polydioxanone threads are inserted into the scalp they slowly dissolve over 3 months. The scalp releases growth factors in response to the dissolving threads. This process can stimulate collagen production. It creates controlled microtrauma in the scalp. This microtrauma triggers the body’s natural healing response, leading to increased blood flow, cell regeneration, and the release of growth factors that can promote hair growth.

Benefits:

  • Only one treatment per year.
  • Safe & well tolerated.
  • No down time -Promotes hair regrowth.

Treatment Steps:

  1. Application of Numbing cream: Dr will apply topical numbing cream and anaesthesia to scalp to minimise discomfort during TET treatment.
  2. Blood collection: Similar to a routine blood test; small amounts (up to 15 ml) of blood will be usually drawn from the patient’s arm.
  3. Centrifugation: Collected blood will be placed in a centrifuge machine which spins at high speed to separate the platelet rich plasma from other components of the blood.
  4.  TET Application: PDO threads will be inserted into the scalp at correct depth with PRP.
