Stem Cell Therapy for Hair Loss in Malaysia 2020

In recent months, stem cell therapy has gained popularity as a promising treatment option for hair loss in Malaysia. However, there is also a lot of confusion due to the overwhelming mixing of credible scientific information and marketing hypes available on the internet.

We have compiled and summarised essential information below in layman's terms so that you can understand and make a better informed decision.


Stem Cells for Hair Loss in Malaysia

Stem cells are found in all tissues, including the scalp. Stem cells are able to regenerate hair follicles that have been damaged due to ageing, stress, environmental factors, drugs and hormonal changes. They promote hair growth, improve thickness of hair strands and reverse hair loss.

Stem Cell Therapy, using Regenera Activa is a no-downtime, advanced hair growth treatment that uses regenerative cells extracted from your scalp to stimulate the other areas that are losing hair.

Regenera Activa is a medical device which can extract stem cells from hair, skin and fat. It has been approved by the EU and the US watchdog, the Food and Drug Administration, as a medical device.

It is purely natural, without any harmful effects, using our own cells, they improve the skin of the scalp, density of the existing hair and stimulate the growth of new hair follicles. It is a safe and effective technique to combat hair loss problems. Regenera Activa, stem cell Therapy is suitable for both men and women. It is also suitable to be done alongside with hair implant or transplant procedures if needed. This treatment has very minimal downtime with fast healing, minimizing complications and obtaining more effective results in least time.

Any man or woman who suffers from hair loss or hair-thinning might be a good candidate, provided there are some live hair follicles left. Those who are completely bald may be more suited for other procedures.
To decide whether you’re suitable for the procedure, aesthetic doctors will have a chat with you to collect detailed information about your hair issues, such as when it first started, severity, any treatments you’ve had, family history, and drug and allergy history.

Next, the doctor will conduct a thorough examination of your scalp, including using a hair microscope to check your hair follicles.

The doctor will then gently harvest skin with healthy hair follicles from a 2mm hair-bearing area from the scalp. As it is a very tiny area, there is hardly any bleeding or discomfort. Anaesthesia in the form of a numbing injection is also used so that you will not suffer any discomfort.

The hair follicles are placed into a high-tech machine to filter and harvest concentrated stem cells. This machine slices the 2mm piece of scalp skin into multiple, very fine pieces of micrografts.

Sterile saline solution is added. The sample is centrifuged to get the stem cell components, which the doctor draws out using a syringe.

The processed stem cells are then injected into balding areas with the finest of needles to minimise discomfort.

Multiple injections are necessary to cover areas with hair loss. Ice packs or numbing cream prior to injection are used to reduce discomfort. Usually, the entire procedure takes less than an hour.

After the first month, you may start to see some improvement on the thickness and density of your existing hair. There might be visible growth of new hair follicles even within the first month itself.

More sessions can be performed if you desire to have even better results. There are usually minimal side effects as the stem cells used are from your own body, with zero compatibility issues.

There is usually no major pain, swelling, bleeding, scarring or other problems. Painkillers are usually unnecessary.

As there are injections involved, do not go swimming for three days after the procedure to prevent infection from dirty water. Showering is fine.

Also try to avoid touching the area unnecessarily for the first few days. You may shampoo as usual after that. And you may exercise or work as usual by the next day.

As with most aesthetic procedures, patients are advised to go for a follow-up approximately 14 days after the first session. Your doctor will check on your progress and ensure everything is going well.
