THE GOAL OF Regenera Activa is to slow down your natural rate of hair loss and activate your natural hair growth. In this way you are able to prolong the life of your natural hair follicles before the need for more radical hair transplant procedures becomes necessary.
Regenera Activa is suitable for the treatment of mild to moderate androgenetic alopecia. This occurs due to the excess of a hormone known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which causes hair follicles to miniaturize and go into the telogen(resting) phase. If this is not treated, the follicles will eventually stop producing hair and the area will be left completely bald.
What Is Regenera Activa?
Regenera Activa is the latest nonsurgical, regenerative and autologous treatment for androgenic hair loss.
How Does Regenera Activa Work?
The Regenera Activa system extracts “micrografts” from your scalp. The “micrografts” are then injected into areas of hair loss to repair and regenerate your scalp. This results in thicker and stronger hair.
It is believed that the growth factor has a stimulatory effect on the remaining existing hair follicles, prompting them to continue cycling through the various phases and helping to prevent further hair loss.
The micrografts contain a combination of stem cell precursors, growth factors and progenitor cells. The micrografts are obtained from the back of the scalp using a 2mm punch biopsy.
Many other areas of medicine use this technology, such as orthopaedics, plastic surgery and maxillofacial surgery.
How is The Treatment Performed?
Step 1 — Harvest of Micro-Grafts
A local anaesthetic is injected into the back of the scalp in the region the sample will be taken. Three to five skin samples will be collected using a 2mm punch biopsy.
Step 2 — Extraction of Regenerative Factors
The patented Regenera Activa® system will then extract growth factors that have potent regenerative abilities on the patients existing hair follicles.
Step 3 — Injection
Regenerative growth factors are injected into the scalp in areas that suffer from hair loss.
Step 1 – Local anaethetic to back of scalp
Step 1 – Harvesting the micrograft 2mm punch
Step 2 – Tissue sample placed inside Regenera Activa
Step 2 – Tissue sample processsed by Regenera Activa Machine
Step 3 – Loading Regenera Activa cells into a syringe
Step 3 – Injection Of Regenara Activa cells into areas of hair loss
Who Is Suitable For Regenera Activa?
It is first important to identify the cause of hair loss. Once this is determined the best treatment to stop further hair loss or to encourage new hair growth can be selected.
- The treatment is suitable for both males and females
- You must be diagnosed with male/female pattern hair loss (androgenic hair loss)
- You must have only Mild or Moderate hair loss or thinning.
Is It Permanent?
This is not a permanent treatment, however each treatment may last between one and three years. The treatment should be repeated every 1-2 years for maintenance
What Results can I expect from Regenera Activa?
- There have been numerous clinical studies which show an improvement in hair density, hair counts and scalp coverage after one month of receiving the treatment.
- Patients have also seen a reduction in the rate of hair loss.
- Over twelve months there is an improvement in the thickness of the hair as well as the growth of new hair.
- When used in conjunction with other hair loss treatments even better results can be achieved.
When Should I Seek Treatment For Hair Loss?
The sooner you can seek treatment the better will be the outcome. This treatment is only effective for those that still have remaining hair follicles that can be induced to come out of their resting phase.
Are There Any Side Effects?
Because Regenera Activa uses autologous micro-grafts extracted from the back of the patient’s scalp there is no risk of allergy or tissue rejection. The sample site at the back of the skull should be kept clean to prevent any chance of infection.
