Restore lost hair without surgery

23rd June 2020 by Anthia Chng 2 Min ReadHair loss in women and men isn’t a fun topic to deal with, but in some cases, products may help. For extreme hair loss, you might need a surgical procedure like a hair transplant. If you’re worried about going under the knife, consider Regenera Activa, a non-surgical hair loss treatment that takes only 45 minutes. We chat with Dr Tommy Ng from Trinity Medical to find out more.What is Regenera Activa?Regenera Activa is a treatment that targets hair loss (androgenetic alopecia) and hair thinning in both men and women. The non-surgical treatment uses the patient’s tissue, which contains stem cells that can help to activate the hair follicles around the affected areas. By stimulating a hair regenerative process, new hair can be produced. Who is a suitable candidate?Regenera Activa will greatly benefit both men and women who want to avoid undergoing a surgical procedure like hair transplant. This FDA-approved treatment is also low maintenance, requiring only one follow-up session per year to maintain your thicker lock of hair.What does the treatment involve?This three-step treatment takes only 45 minutes. It can be carried out comfortably in the clinic.The first step is to harvest the skin cells. Local anaesthesia is applied around the back of the scalp, making it a relatively comfortable procedure with minimal discomfort. You may feel a slight pinching sensation, but not a sharp pain. Your doctor will then take three small samples (2.5mm diameter per sample) of your scalp skin. The sampling procedure is completely painless.Step two is the processing of regenerative cells. The Regenera Activa system processes and extracts regenerative cells that contain high amount of bioactive growth factors. Lastly, these regenerative cells are injected into areas of the scalp that are suffering from hair loss. Is there downtime?Patients can resume normal daily activities after the treatment as there’s no downtime! However, it’s advisable to avoid saunas, swimming pools, excessive sun exposure to the scalp and strenuous physical activities for the next three days.How long will it take to see results?Studies show existing hair follicles begin to regenerate new hair four to six weeks after the treatment, reducing hair loss. Clinical studies have shown improvements in hair density, hair counts and scalp coverage in as early as one month, but patience is a virtue. Improvements in total hair thickness take time. Consider repeating the treatment after 15 to 18 months to maintain the results.Regenera Activa is priced at $3000 and is available at Trinity Medical Centre.Written in collaboration with:Dr Tommy Ng from Trinity Medical Centre (Marine Parade)87, Marine Parade Central, #01-5036344 0027 | sgtrinityaesthetics.com
