What Is Regenera Activa?
Regenera Activa is a US-FDA-approved regenerative medicine that extracts healthy hair follicle cells from the back of the scalp, clinically administered and treated so they become more absorbable and turned into “micro-grafts” – which are then injected back onto your scalp to stimulate growth in areas that are experiencing hair loss. This is a 100% natural and 100% bio-compatible procedure as the patient is the donor and receptor of autologous micro-grafts, which allows the recipient to benefit from the regenerative activities.
The technique is based on clinical studies demonstrating a high concentration of cells obtained from solid tissues. Through a calibrated mechanical process and filtrate, the cells and other precursor elements are in high concentration and can be used in tissue regeneration.
This procedure benefits men and women who experience progressive and partial baldness known as Androgenetic Alopecia, as well as hair loss and thinning issues.
What Is Androgenetic Alopecia?
Androgenetic Alopecia is a common pattern of hair loss in both men and women. In men, it is known as male-pattern hair loss (MPHL) and female-pattern hair loss (FPHL) when it affects the women. In males, the hair loss often presents as a receding hairline while presents as thinning of the hair in females.
Who is a suitable candidate?
The doctor will need to assess whether the hair loss is related to the problem of androgenetic alopecia and if it is, the severity of the condition. Regenera Activa is based on the recovery of still-alive, hypotrophic, hypo-functioning hair follicles. The more hair the patient has at the beginning of the treatment the better the expected results. Those with severe forms of the condition are not ideal candidates for this procedure.
Those who experience the following pattern of hair loss are the most suitable candidates for Regenera Activa.
What results can we expect?
The 30-minute process promotes the regrowth of hair while increasing the density, thickness and quality of the hair and reduces the rate of hair loss, allowing men and women to combat the signs of hair loss.
Is it painful?
At Ageless Medical, our goal across all procedures is to minimize any discomfort one might experience. The Regenera Activa is comfortably done with the help of local anaesthesia.
Is there any downtime?
The procedure has no aesthetic issues as hair follicle cells are extracted from your scalp behind your ear. You can resume your normal daily activity but should avoid going into the sea and swimming pools for a week.
