This innovative treatment — used to treat androgenetic alopecia — entails autologous cell transplant, which is widely used in regenerative medicine. The patient is both the donor and the recipient of an autologous transplant during a single session. The treated area is stimulated using progenitor cells (a variety of stem cells) and growth factors obtained from the site of the graft collection. This technique is based on clinical studies showing a high concentration of obtained cells. Through a calibrated mechanical process and filtration, a high concentration of progenitor cells and other precursor elements are obtained, including stem cells. This suspension is injected into the scalp.
What does the treatment entail?
If a patient has been diagnosed with androgenetic alopecia, no additional tests are necessary. In other cases, an examination of the scalp is required and possibly additional tests ordered by the doctor in order to make a diagnosis. The treatment is performed in the clinic during a single visit.
- At the first stage, the doctor takes a small section of skin (one to three biopsies 2.5 mm in diameter) from the hairline at the back of the head. This is the area that is least susceptible to androgenetic alopecia. Collection of such a small skin segment allows spontaneous healing of the graft site. This is a completely painless process, because the doctor anesthetizes the biopsy site with lidocaine.
- In the next stage, the doctor uses a special device to isolate progenitor cells, stem cells, and growth factors that have regenerative capacity from the collected tissue.
- During one biopsy, up to 80,000 cells are obtained which, due to a unique filtration process, have more than a 90% survival rate.
- The concentrated suspension prepared in this way is then applied to the scalp by mesotherapy in the area of the hair follicles to initiate repair processes.
Importantly, Regenera Activa is performed only once in a single session. It can be repeated only after 2–3 years to prevent further hair loss and progression of androgenetic alopecia, which is unfortunately a progressive disease that cannot be completely suppressed. It is possible, however, to slow it down significantly and even reverse its symptoms, causing the regrowth of lost hair.

After the procedure
On the day of the procedure, you must not wash your hair. Intensive exercise, the pool, and sauna should be avoided for 7 days. Any slight swelling or redness of the skin usually fades away within 1–3 days after the procedure.
The thickening of the hair at the site of an autologous stem cell transplantation is visible 30 days after the procedure.
Regenera Activa treatment is a therapy recommended for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in both men and women. It can also be used as an auxiliary treatment before and after a hair transplant to strengthen it.
