There is nothing quite as depressing as hair loss,for some. Hair fall, hair loss and ultimately
baldness is not uncommon in today’s world of environmental pollution and contaminated
water, not to mention stress and busy lifestyle.
Loss of hair occurs when there is a disruption in the normal growth process of the hair. In recent
studies, scientists have found that the most common cause of hair loss or baldness in men and women is due to Androgenetic
alopecia, which in turn is due to change in the level of male hormones or androgens. This shift in hormone level is said to
be the major cause of hair loss in about 70 per cent of men. It affects not only the rate of hair growth but also the density
of the hair follicle and also the number of hairs growing from a single root. A healthy hair root can develop not 1 but up to
4 hairs. In male pattern balding the hair loss is more towards the front whereas the women the hair loss occurs as diffuse
thinning of the hair. The treatment of hair loss is now shifted towards identifying the key factors that trigger or block the
regeneration of the hair roots. One of the main reasons for the hair loss occurring more on the front and top than on the sides
and back is due to the sensitivity of these hair roots to DHT(dihydrotestosterone). The first solution to this problem was to use
medicines that blocked DHT, but this led to unnecessary side effects especially related to sexual function. This opened up new
areas of research that was natural, safe and effective.
Meanwhile, some path-breaking research has been done on using your own healthy cells from the scalp to
regenerate new cells and hair. Regenera Activa is a product of such research and an innovative treatment procedure by which hair
growth can be effectively stimulated. This procedure makes use of cells from your own scalp to stimulate other areas of the scalp
where there is a hair fall or where the hair is becoming weak and thin. It has been proven to be safe and approved by
medical authorities in various countries.
In this procedure, a very tiny bit of skin from your scalp is excised. This is usually taken from an area
where the hair has a healthy growth, because of the density of hair in the
excised section is crucial for the success of the treatment.
For most men, it is from either the sides of their head or back, where the hair follicles are not usually
affected by the dihydrotestosterone. This micrograft is then transplanted to the area of the scalp where there is a loss of hair.
There is a minimal injury to the scalp when the transplant is done and new hair is expected to regenerate from the grafted area in
about a month or so after the procedure. The results of this treatment have been proven to be very good.
