1. WHAT IS ACTIVA REGENERA – HAIR FOLLICLE STEM CELL INJECTION?
1.1 What are stem cells?
Stem cells are the most primitive cells in the human body, with the ability to divide indefinitely and produce various cell types such as brain cells, muscle cells, pancreatic cells, and so on. Stem cells are classified into two types:
- Embryonic stem cells are found in the embryo and placenta. These cells can be divided into hundreds of individuals, which differentiate into other cells of the human body, including cardiac cells, nerve cells, bone cells, kidney cells, skin cells, etc.
- Adult stem cells are stem cells taken from several adult body areas, including marrow, bone, skin, fat, etc. Adult stem cells, unlike embryonic stem cells, can only be developed into certain types of cells within the human body.
1.2 What is Activa Regenera – Hair Follicle Stem Cell Injection?
Activa Regenera – Hair Follicle Stem Cell Injection is a method using adult stem cells taken from your own hair follicles to inject into the scalp. The uniqueness of this application is that it relies on your body to reactivate damaged hair follicles, resulting in hair loss restoration and hair density.
Activa Regenera – Hair Follicle Stem Cell Injection has undergone worldwide clinical trials and is certified by the US FDA and CE as a safe and effective method. The medical devices used in this application are Rigenracons, Regenera Acitva also listed as Class A medical devices by the Health Sciences Authority (HSA), and have also been approved by the HSA.
In order to extract stem cells from the scalp, the hair follicles at the nape will be taken and put in the Regenera Activa machine for centrifuging and collecting. The micro-blades of the Regenera Activa device separate stem cells from each other without using any chemicals. Therefore, the obtained stem cells are high in purity and completely safe to inject into the scalp without causing any side effects.
Several expectations after Activa Regenera – Hair Follicle Stem Cell Injection:
- Increasing hair density at the forehead, temples, and top of the head area
- Increasing hair strand thickness resulted in hair density improvement.
- Quick hair growth.
- Improving density covering thin hair areas.
2. ACTIVA REGENERA – HAIR FOLLICLE STEM CELL INJECTION WORK?
Hair loss resulted in damaged hair follicles. Hormones within the bloodstream that transform into hair follicles will be converted into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). The hair growth cycle is disrupted, and the telogen phase is lengthened, resulting in shrinking hair follicles and hair loss and weakened hair strength during this period.
During the procedure, the doctor will extract healthy, permanent hair follicles from the nape that are not affected by the hormone DHT. These follicles will be centrifuged by the Regenera Activa machine, resulting in a mix containing adult stem cells. This mixture contains not only stem cells but also growth factors, ECM matrix, living tissue cells, and hormone-induced hair loss inhibitors.
The cells within this mixture will turn the hair follicles of the bald or alopecia areas into those carrying the hair follicle characteristics of the nape area. Therefore, normal or DHT-affected follicles will be replaced with permanent, none-homocysteine-affected follicles, improving the hair loss problem.

5. ACTIVA REGENERA – HAIR FOLLICLE STEM CELL INJECTION PROCESS
Activa Regenera – Hair Follicle Stem Cell Injection process takes 45-60 minutes with 6 basic steps:
- STEP 1: Examining hair follicles. Directly consulting with and examining the doctor. The doctor confirms the exact reason and hair loss density for an appropriate solution.

- STEP 3: Hair follicle extraction. The doctor takes 3 – 5 clusters of hair follicles by using a specialized micro punch tip.
- STEP 4: Extracting hair follicles by Regenera Activa device. The post-extraction hair follicles are squished within Regenera Kit, and put in the Regenera Activa device to separate stem cells from the hair follicles.
- STEP 5: Performing micro hair follicle germ cells transplant. The doctor injects the taken stem cells into the thin hair area.
- STEP 6: Post-treatment instructions and re-examination appointment. The doctor gives post-treatment instructions and appoints a re-examination.
6. NOTES FOR POST-TREATMENT
- Immediately after the treatment, you will feel pain and a slight swelling when the anesthetic wears off. It is better to keep the bandage on for 24 hours to avoid infection and help the wound heal faster.
