The Timeline to Transformation: When to Expect Results from Regenera Activa

by | Mar 26, 2024

Being deeply intertwined with identity, self-esteem, and societal expectations, hair loss can profoundly affect one’s sense of control and agency. Hair loss often represents more than just a physical change; it has implications that can challenge one’s personal and cultural identity. 

Societal norms frequently link hair with youth, health, and attractiveness. Consequently, individuals experiencing hair loss may feel less confident and prematurely aged. Generally, experiencing hair loss can instil a feeling of losing control over one’s body and life.

Now’s the time to restore a sense of agency and control. Our blog highlights one notable treatment that offers a promising solution: Regenera Activa. Read on to understand what to expect on your journey to thicker, healthier hair.

Understanding Regenera Activa

Regenera Activa is a clinically proven hair restoration treatment that harnesses regenerative medicine to stimulate hair growth and rejuvenate the scalp. Unlike traditional hair loss treatments that only address the symptoms, Regenera Activa targets the root cause of hair loss by activating the body’s natural healing processes.

Regenera Activa utilises your body’s own regenerative potential to combat hair loss. A small sample of the scalp tissue is extracted and processed to isolate stem cells and growth factors. This concentrated solution is then strategically injected back into the thinning areas of the scalp. Unlike other hair loss treatments that focus on blocking specific hormones or stimulating temporary growth, Regenera Activa aims to trigger natural hair regrowth by harnessing the body’s inherent capability to regenerate.

Regenera Activa is known for promoting hair regrowth, improving hair density and thickness, and overall scalp health. However, it’s not a magic bullet. The goal is to revitalise your existing hair follicles and encourage new growth, not necessarily to achieve complete hair restoration.

 

The Regenera Activa Procedure

Regenera Activa utilises a technique known as autologous micrografting. This process involves extracting a small sample of the patient’s scalp tissue from an area where hair is still dense and healthy, typically from the back of the head. 

This tissue sample is rich in hair follicle stem cells and growth factors. It is then processed in a specialised device that isolates and concentrates these regenerative cells and factors. The resulting preparation, a potent concentration of cells and growth factors, is then injected into the scalp areas experiencing hair loss.

Following the procedure, you may experience mild redness or swelling, but downtime is minimal. Your doctor will provide specific aftercare instructions, which may include avoiding strenuous activity or sun exposure for a short period.

The Regenera Activa Results Timeline

When anticipating the outcomes of Regenera Activa, it’s crucial to understand the expected timeline for seeing results. 

INITIAL MONTHS (1-3)

Early on, you may notice slight shedding, a natural response as the treatment begins to stimulate the scalp and hair follicles.

MONTHS 4-6

This period often marks the start of visible improvements, including increased hair density and thickness.

BEYOND 6 MONTHS

Improvements should continue, with most patients seeing optimal results around 9 to 12 months.

However, it’s important to recognize that these timelines can vary based on individual factors, underscoring the need for personalised consultation with a credible doctor. Note too, the factors influencing the speed and effectiveness of results such as  age, severity of hair loss, and overall health. Younger patients, those with milder hair loss, and individuals leading a healthy lifestyle typically observe quicker results. Regular follow-ups with your doctor are essential to monitor progress and adjust the treatment plan as needed.

Comparing Regenera Activa to Other Treatments

Compared to some hair loss medications or minoxidil, which require continuous use to maintain results, Regenera Activa offers a potential long-term solution with fewer side effects. While hair transplants can be effective, they are more invasive and expensive. Regenera Activa provides a minimally invasive option for those seeking a more natural approach.

  • Minimally Invasive: Compared to hair transplants, which involve surgical extraction and placement of follicles, Regenera Activa is a much less invasive procedure. This translates to shorter recovery times and less discomfort.
  • Natural Approach: Unlike medications that target specific hormones or minoxidil that stimulates temporary growth, Regenera Activa leverages your body’s own cells and growth factors to promote natural hair regrowth.
  • Potential for Long-Term Results: While some hair loss medications require continuous use, Regenera Activa offers a potential long-term solution by addressing the root cause of hair loss and stimulating natural regrowth.

Regenera Activa presents as a viable solution for those with early to moderate hair loss, or people who favour a procedure that is both minimally invasive and rooted in the body’s natural healing processes. Although it comes with a higher initial cost, the potential for long-lasting outcomes makes it a worthwhile consideration.

We understand that choosing the right hair loss treatment is deeply personal, which makes consulting with an experienced hair restoration specialist key to making an informed decision. Beyond the treatment itself, adopting a holistic approach to well-being—including a nutritious diet, effective stress management, and the use of suitable hair care products—can sustain the results of any hair treatment procedure.
