What is Regenera Activa?
Regenera Activa is a hair loss treatment that has a low downtime that extracts micrografts from your healthy hair & scalp and uses those micrografts to stimulate hair growth on parts of your scalp affected by hair loss.
This makes use of a technique called “Stromal Vascular Fraction”, a method that uses autologous micrografts taken from the patient’s own body to activate dormant hair follicles and triggering healthy hair growth.

Am I a good candidate for Regenera Activa treatment?
Both men and women are eligible to go for Regenera Activa treatments. Generally, patients with mild to medium hair loss are good candidates for this treatment.
If your hair loss is too severe, you may not have enough healthy hair cells in order for this treatment to work effectively.
How is the Regenera Activa treatment carried out?
The Regenera Activa treatment can be broken up into 3 distinct steps:
Harvesting the micro-grafts: Under local anaesthesia, the doctor will extract 4-5 skin samples from the healthy parts of your scalp. In standard male or female pattern hairloss, this is usually from the back of your scalp.
Extraction of the growth factors: Using the device, growth factors from these skin samples are extracted. These growth factors are picked due to their abilities to stimulate regeneration within dormant parts of the scalp.
Injection of the growth factors into affected parts of the scalp: These growth factors are then injected into parts of the scalp suffering from hair loss.
Are there any side effects? What is the downtime like?
There are no major side effects related to Regenera Activa. It has been approved by health authorities such as the US FDA and is recognized for its efficacy and safety in treating hair loss in both men and women alike.
Unlike more invasive hair loss treatment procedures, there is no downtime associated with Regenera Activa. As the procedure is carried out under local anaesthesia, there is minimal discomfort or pain associated with the treatment.
Patients are able to return to their daily activities immediately after treatment has concluded. As the scalp is still recovering, it is recommended that patients avoid swimming or any water sports for at least two weeks to prevent any bacteria from entering the scalp.
What sort of results should I expect from Regenera Activa?
Results from Regenera Activa are expected to last for up to 2 years.
In the month immediately following treatment, it is common for hair loss to slow and new hair growth is usually observed. The existing hair follicles will continue to trend towards healthy hair growth over the course of the next few months.
It is expected that you should return to repeat the Regenera Activa treatment after 16-19 months.
