Male Pattern Hair Loss Treatment with Regenera Activa
Male pattern balding is very common in men and sometimes can also be seen in women. It is caused by a hormone called DHT. Some individuals are more susceptible to it. It has a significant genetic component so if your father has the classic male pattern balding, there is a good chance you will suffer from it too. Male pattern balding can also affect any age and can start as early as men in their 20’s.
Male pattern balding can be very unsightly and makes a person look much older than he actually is. Many over the counter products and shampoos have been developed to combat this pattern of balding. However, in terms of medically proven treatments, there are only a few options.
A medicine is known Finasteride has been available to treat male pattern balding. It is effective and very popular and used by many men. However, there is a small chance that it can permanently reduce libido and volume of ejaculate.
A lotion known as Minoxidil has also been available to treat male pattern balding. It is more effective for hair loss at the apex and not so much at the forehead (horns). It can also cause irritation of the skin when applied.
This is a surgical procedure where individual hairs are taken from the back of the head and planted into where they are required. It is like planting padi wheat. This is often expensive and requires a significant amount of downtime.
Regenera Activa Treatment
This is a procedure where a tiny bit of skin is taken from the back of the scalp. A machine then extracts the healthy cells from the skin and these cells are injected into where hair needs to grow. It is like putting fertilizer to help hair grow. It is cheaper than a hair transplant and does not require any downtime.
Regenera Activa uses the technology of harvesting your own hair cells, concentrating it and injecting back into your scalp to help with male pattern hair loss (androgenic alopecia).
What Causes Male Pattern Hair Loss (Androgenic Alopecia)?
In most cases, it is due to the genes you inherited from either your father or mother or both. Typically, if you are affected by the condition, the hair follicles start to shrink time under the influence.

How Does Regenera Activa Hair Loss Treatment Work?
It uses your own body’s progenitor cells and growth factors to assist with the regeneration of the hair cells.
A very small area around the back of the head is shaved.
The area is then disinfected and a local anaesthetic is injected to numb the area. 3 tiny tissues samples (each 2.5 mm in size) are then taken from the area.
Usually, no stitching needs to be done and there is minimal bleeding in the area where the tissues are removed.
The tissues are then placed in a specialised container that contains a solution.
This container is then put into the machine which will begin to process of extracting the progenitor cells and concentrating it. The process takes a few minutes. After which, the solution is taken out of the container with a syringe and then injected into the area of the hair loss.
