Regenera Activa for Hair Loss Treatment

Brushing your hair every day and seeing large clumps of hair in your brush is not a pleasant experience. Not to mention the amount of hair that you see in your shower drain every time you look down in the shower. Alopecia, or male-pattern and female-pattern baldness, can affect many people during their lives. The causes of excessive hair loss vary, including extreme stress, medical conditions, hormonal imbalances, or genetics. The reasons vary, but the result is the same, and in most cases, it is upsetting and embarrassing for the patient to deal with.

Regenera Active, also known as Regenera, is an FDA-approved hair stimulation method using the body’s own stem cells, growth factors, and progenitor cells to trigger tissue regeneration, which usually leaves a remarkable effect on hair growth and nourishment. It works by collecting stem cells and re-injecting them into the scalp.

Regenera Activa is a powerful treatment when done to the right patient. It is best done for androgenetic alopecia in the early stages when hair is lost but hair follicles are still present.

How the Regenera Activa Procedure is Done

This might not be the easiest procedure to perform; this is why you need to have it done by a dermatologist. Regenera Activa Procedure is done in three stages; sample extraction, solution preparation, and solution injection. Here is what you need to know about the stages of the process:

First stage: Sample extraction

This step involves the collection of 1 to 3 skin samples (specimens) from the patient. These samples are collected from the occipital area, which is the least susceptible to androgenic alopecia as the hair growth there is not hormone dependant and this is usually the area where we harvest hair follicles for hair transplant. The samples are usually very small, measuring approx. 3 mm in diameter, so the collection site will heal spontaneously without leaving any visible traces or scars on the skin.

Second stage: Solution preparation

In this stage, the collected material is inserted into the cone and then placed into a special device, where suspension containing stem cells, growth factors, and progenitor cells will be isolated.

Third Stage: Solution application

During the last stage, the dermatologist begins injecting the upper part of the scalp (frontal) with the prepared solution.

Sessions Needed for the Regenera Activa Procedure

The number of Regenera Activa sessions needed differs from one person to another. However, typically, a patient needs one session every one to three years.
