Progenitor cell therapy (Regenera Activa)
Thinning hair can be saved if you intervene in time. Have you heard of a highly effective method that can stop hair loss, induce new hair growth and even improve hair quality? It is currently the most advanced and effective method among the available therapies. You don't have to worry about adverse reactions. It uses the superpowers of the body's own cells.
For whom does therapy make the most sense?
For people with genetically determined hair loss. This is revealed by typical localities - corners, parietal area, vertex of the head. "Here, the digital trichoscope reveals the gradual shrinkage of the hair follicles. We observe the different thicknesses of individual hairs or the presence of empty hair follicles,´´ explains the expert in trichology, Silvia Andelová, M.D. the signs of androgenetic alopecia, which is the most common cause of hair loss.
It is in patients who hear this diagnosis that we record the most radical positive results after Regenera Activa treatment. Behind this complex name is a quite simple, yet miraculously effective progenitor cell therapy.
The potential for their use in medicine is enormous. Research is currently underway, for example, on the use of progenitor cells in the construction of heart valves, blood vessels and tissues forming the electrical conduction system of the heart.
In our clinic, we use progenitor cells in trichology for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia in both men and women and in aesthetic medicine for natural skin regeneration, smoothing wrinkles and firming aging skin. They are also used in the treatment of scars, acne scars and burns.
Is therapy associated with risks or adverse reactions?
,'Progenitor cells are the descendants of stem cells with amazing abilities and applications in modern medicine. They can transform into any type of cell, and regenerate tissues at the site of their introduction. For example, a hair bulb to the stage where it can grow back into a healthy hair. The application to the scalp regenerates the hair follicles, stops hair loss, induces the growth of new ones, and the quality of the hair is also noticeably improved,´´ Dr. Andelová describes the therapy.
Before all other types of treatment, Regenera Activa therapy has some great positives. It is time-saving, pain is minimal and the recovery period is short. Most importantly, apart from the effect, it carries almost no risks as we only use our own tissue in the application without adding any chemicals.
How do we obtain these miracle cells?
From the patient's scalp. Tissue approximately 2.5 millimetres in size is taken by punch biopsy from an area that is not affected by hair loss and the hair follicles are of the highest quality here. A digital trichoscope will help the doctor to determine it. Most often, this is a spot at the back of the head behind the ear.
The tissue obtained is inserted into a device with a special disposable separation tube, which forms the heart of the whole system. Thanks to its unique patented design, it is able to separate cells purely mechanically and therefore without the addition of any additional substances and chemicals, thus maintaining the very high vitality of the cells.
