What is Regenera Activa?
Autologous Micrografting Technology ® (AMT) is an innovative, simple and effective regenerative method to obtain your own healthy fair samples. The AMT ® protocols are based on stimulating self-regeneration by activating native progenitor cells located in your own tissues, through a simple process, without risks to the patient and great therapeutic potential.
In a single session, the patient is a donor and recipient of autologous micrografts, allowing the recipient area to benefit from the regenerative activity of the progenitor cells and growth factors extracted from the donor site.
How does it work?
The technique is based on clinical studies showing a high concentration of the cells obtained from solid tissues. Through a calibrated mechanical process and filtering, those cells and other precursor elements are concentrated and form a solution when mixed with saline. This can then be injected into areas of hair loss and hair thinning.
The treatment is effective for male pattern baldness, traction alopecia and certain other types of alopecia. It is also suitable after a hair transplant to further improve or maintain the grafts. Our specialist doctors will be able to conduct a full assessment during your consultation to decide if this treatment is suitable for you.
What is the RIGENERACON?
It is a device designed and approved to mechanically disintegrate any biological tissue obtaining autologous micrografts in a minimally invasive way. The Rigeneracon is a class II sterile and disposable medical device consisting of a rotation and pressure propeller, a grid with 100 hexagonal holes 80 microns in diameter, and 600 micro blades designed for optimal and effective cutting of different tissue types, in this case the scalp tissue.
Each device is equipped with an RFID microchip that contains product information for security and traceability reasons.
How does it work?
The tissue to be treated is obtained through a biopsy. Afterward, it is introduced into the Rigeneracon device and is gently pressed against the micro blades at a constant speed of 80 rpm, without damaging the cellular structure to disaggregated tissue. The sample is processed between 2 to 6 minutes, depending on the type of tissue. The calibrated holes act as a filter, selecting only particles and cells less than 80 microns. The complete procedure takes approximately 45-60 minutes in a sterile manner.
Any pre-treatment information that I need to know?
- Avoid caffeine for 24 hrs prior.
- Stop using hair sprays for 7 days prior.
- Shower hair before the treatment.
What is the downtime for this treatment?
There is almost no downtime for this treatment, though there will be a medical bandage over the puncture sites on the scalp, other than that you are free to get back to your daily routine.
How does the treatment work?
Three samples of healthy hair including the roots are extracted under local anaesthetic and disaggregated with saline in the Regenera Activa device. The resulting solution is injected into areas of hair loss and or hair thinning.
The highly concentrated stem cells derived from the healthy hair bearing part of your scalp helps stimulates the growth of new hair follicles and rejuvenate existing follicles.
As a result, the hair roots have an improved supply of nutrients and minerals. The wounds caused by the removal of the samples are not stitched, as they normally heal by themselves. In addition, there is no downtime; even washing your hair is possible again just one day after the treatment.
Is this treatment painful?
The treatment itself is relatively painless. Only the application of the local anaesthetic might be a bit painful. The suspension itself is injected into the scalp with microneedles.
How long does it take to see the results?
Results will start to be noticed after 6-8 weeks. But the final results will be noticed after 4-6 months. The Regenera Activa treatment lasts for about one to two years. We recommend repeating treatments once a year for maintencance. There are no side effects.
Who is the ideal candidate for Regenera Activa?
As mentioned above, Regenera Activa therapy makes sense if the hereditary hair loss is mild to moderate.
