The Secret of getting Fuller & Thicker hair – Regenera Activa
The Regenera Activa is an innovative system for administering, obtaining & processing cells in order to stimulate hair growth in androgenic alopecia. This highly anticipated technology is backed by numerous clinical researches & studies, and it is finally here in Singapore!
First of all, let us understand what is Androgenic Alopecia.
Androgenic Alopecia is a common form of hair loss which occurs in approximately 70% of men & 40% of women. In men, this condition is also known as “male-pattern baldness”. Hair is usually lost in a well-defined pattern, starting from the area above the temples. Over time, the hairline recedes to form a characteristic “M” shape. Hair also thins at the crown, often progressing to partial or even complete baldness.
For women, the pattern of hair loss is different from male-pattern baldness. In women, the hair becomes thinner all over the head and the hairline does not recede. Androgenic Alopecia in women rarely leads to total baldness.
Causes of Androgenic Alopecia
A variety of environmental and genetic factors most likely play a role in causing androgenic alopecia. Although researchers are still studying risk factors that may contribute to androgenic alopecia, most of these factors still remain unknown till date. Researchers have determined that this form of hair loss is related to hormones called androgens, particularly the dihydrotestosterone. Androgens have important functions in both females and males, such as regulating hair growth and sex drive.
Let us talk about hair growth.
Hair growth begins under the skin in structures called follicles. Each strand of hair typically grows for 2 to 6 years; after which it goes into a “resting phase” for a few months before falling out. The cycle repeats when the follicle begins growing a new hair. Increased levels of androgens in hair follicles can lead to a shorter cycle of hair growth and the growth of shorter and thinner strands of hair. In addition, there is a delay in the growth of new hair to replace strands that are shed.
The solution? Let us introduce the Regenera Activa!
What is Regenera Activa?
The Regenera Activa is an innovative state-of-the-art procedure which originates from Spain and this treatment procedure is intended to inhibit hair loss & stimulate the growth of new hair. A unique combination of stem cells, growth factors & progenitor cells is injected into the scalp in order to initiate the regenerate process. During the procedure, the patient is simultaneously both the donor and recipient of a mixture consisting of the grafted substances, which enables the possibility to avoid the risk of allergies. The Regenera Activa has the CE Mark, and also approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration.
The Regenera Technology.
The Regenera Technology works with a safe and standardized sample preparation system for the automation and mechanical disintegration and filtering of solid tissues.
Regenera is a tool specially developed and manufactured for the clinical application of the regenerative procedures using autologous micrografts. In a single session, the patient is both the donor and recipient of the autologous micrografts, which allows the recipient to benefit for the regenerative activities.
The technique is based on clinical studies demonstrating high concentration of cells obtained from the solid tissues. Through a calibrated mechanical process and filtration, the cells and other precursor elements are in high concentration and can be used in tissue regeneration.
The Regenera Activa is recommended for individuals who’re not ready for a hair transplant but are suffering from androgenic alopecia, as well as those who have recently noticed increased hair loss and thinning. However, patients who are on long-term anticoagulant, diagnosed with cancer or immune diseases will not be recommended. Do speak to our doctors for further clarifications and confirmation.
The Treatment Process
The Regenera Activa treatment (done by our professional doctors) is divided into 3 stages:
1) The first stage involves the collection of 1 to 3 skin samples (specimens) from the patient. They are collected from the occipital area as it is the least susceptible to androgenic alopecia. These samples are extremely small, measuring approximately 2.5mm in diameter, so the collection site will heal spontaneously without leaving any visible traces on the skin.
2) During the second stage, the collected skin samples are placed into the Regenera Activa device where suspension containing stem cells, growth factors and progenitor cells will be isolated into hundreds of thousands of cells that have potent regenerative abilities.
3) The final stage consists of injecting the scalp with the mixture that suffers from hair loss to initiate the hair follicle regeneration process.
It is worth noting that 1 session takes approximately 45 minutes and only 1 session is required for the very first treatment. Subsequently, it is highly recommended for patients to continue only 1 maintenance session annually.
Discomfort & Downtime
There will be minimal discomfort as local anaesthesia (painkiller injection) will be applied before the procedure begins. Patients can resume normal daily activities after the treatment as there’s no downtime! However, it is advisable to avoid saunas, swimming pools and excessive sun exposure to the scalp and strenuous physical activities for 3 days after the treatment.
What kind of results should I expect?
Initial visible results can be seen within a month after the treatment, and the results will peak during the next 6 months! Patients will witness a reduction in hair loss, followed by a fuller & thicker hair!
What will my investment be?
Your investment for the initial treatment will be at a modest price SGD$3,000. Our clinic also offers a 6 or 12 months interest-free credit card instalment plans for the following banks: Citibank, OCBC & UOB. This treatment is non-obligatory and you can just arrange for a consultation with our doctors.
The Regenera Activa is suitable for both men & women suffering from androgenetic alopecia. The treatment is highly effective & quick with minimal discomfort & no downtime. Your journey towards a fuller & thicker hair starts by calling 6221 8221 or 8448 8636 (whatsapp enabled). It is strongly recommended to arrange for an appointment so that our doctors can personally cater sufficient time to attend to you exclusively!
