Androgynous alopecia is one of the most frequent causes of hair loss. It affects both men and women, and involves increased sensitivity of hair follicles to male hormones (androgens). It affects ca. 70% of men and 40% of women at a certain stage of their lives.
Regenera Activa is a specially designed system that uses autologous cell transplant. Its calibrated mechanical processes and filtration generate high concentrations of progenitor (precursor) cells which are capable of tissue regeneration.
The procedure involves harvesting 1 – 3 skin sections with a 2.5 cm diameter from the neck area, along the hairline. This area is least prone to androgynous alopecia. Regenera Activa is pain free, because the harvesting site is anaesthetized by means of lidocaine.
Harvested skin sections are placed in a device that generates a cell suspension. It is then injected with a needle into hair covered skull.
