The most common PDR techniques utilize metal rods and body picks to push out the dents from the underside of the body panel.

Experienced technicians can avoid cracking or fracturing with making use of heat, although a re-painted surface has a greater likelihood of fracturing. Furthermore, it is reckless to "glue pull" a painted panel, because you risk also drawing non factory paint off.
