Androgenic alopecia is a genetic condition that can affect both men and women. Men with this condition, called male pattern baldness, can begin suffering hair loss as early as their teens or early 20s. It is characterized by a receding hairline and gradual disappearance of hair from the crown and frontal scalp. Women with this condition, called female pattern baldness, don't experience noticeable thinning until their 40s or later. Women experience a general thinning over the entire scalp, with the most extensive hair loss at the crown.
A variety of genetic and environmental factors likely play a role in causing androgenic alopecia. Researchers have determined that this form of hair loss is related to hormones called androgens, particularly an androgen called dihydrotestosterone.
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. Additionally, there is a delay in the growth of new hair to replace strands that are shed.
What is Regenera Activa?
Regenera Activa treatment begins by extracting three tissue samples from the back of scalp. The tissue samples are extracted with a hole punch from the bottom of the donor scalp, also known as the occipital section.
The samples are essentially large scalp extractions and contain several hair follicles each, as well as the surrounding fat and vascular tissue. The tissue samples are then placed into Regenera machine to process. Donor hair follicles, fat, and blood are filtered by the machine and are extracted into a needle syringe. The solution is then injected into the scalp where there is hair loss.
Regenera Activa is an effective technique using injectable micro capillary graft, which slows down the evolution of hair loss by immunomodulation, as well as promoting hair growth. The micrograft solution obtained during this process has the required regenerative properties, such as chemotaxis, cell proliferation, and high angiogenic potential.
