Celebrated as the “Pioneering stem cell procedure that doesn’t just prevent hair loss but reverses it ” as seen in The Mail On Sunday
The revolution in hair growth is here, in the UK, at Vie Aesthetics. With VieStem Hair we are giving men and women their hair and their confidence back. We are certainly excited every day with the results on our clients, men and women alike. Many publications, amongst them The Sun and Daily Mail, ran great articles on our treatment, based on case studies, interviews with our patients and experts to examining how it might be the latest breakthrough against hair loss.
Who is this for?
Hair loss affects millions of people across the world, in both men and women. In many cases, such conditions dent self-confidence and cause enormous psychological stress that negatively impacts our lives.
If you suffer from hair loss, we know how damaging that can be. Fortunately, VieStem Hair Micro-Transplantation with Regenera Activa is the newest, most exciting breakthrough in that eternal fight. It uses your body’s own tissue to improve hair density and trigger new growth on your scalp where you are thinning.
This regenerative, autologous procedure is suitable for early, mild or moderate forms of the hereditary condition known as androgenic alopecia – better known as male pattern baldness and female pattern baldness.
The procedure can also be highly effective when used in conjunction with approved hair loss medications and surgical hair transplants. Or as an alternative to either.
Why Vie Aesthetics?
Vie Aesthetics, a multi-award winning brand, is delighted to have been the first clinic in the UK to introduce this effective new therapy and we are the NUMBER ONE clinic in the UK offering the procedure using the Regenera Activa device, which is FDA approved and CE certified.
Since introducing VieStem Hair to the UK in our clinics at Vie Aesthetics in November 2018, we have treated hundreds and hundreds of patients. Our clients do not just come from all across the UK; we have clients travelling in from as far as Canada, USA, Brazil, Australia, Norway. They come to Vie Aesthetics London and Rayleigh to have this procedure by our international expert, Dr Ioannis Liakas (MD, FRCP, MSC, BCAM) at Vie Aesthetics.
At Vie Aesthetics, you can have this one-off treatment of hair micro-grafting in half an hour. We use of your own body’s own regenerative tissue to combat hair loss for areas around the temples and the top of the scalp.
Intrigued? Here are a couple of testimonials from clients who were among the first to try the treatment and who have experienced success.
“Four months after I tried the procedure, I visited my mum and almost the first thing she said was that I’d grown more hair.” Chris Wild, 39.
“My hair started to fall out after the birth of my two children, and it was still thinning five years later, so much so that I could see my scalp at the top of my head. But three months after having this, I noticed little hairs begin to grow. I couldn’t wipe the smile off my face. It has restored my confidence and I would do it again in a heartbeat.” Tracy Kiss, 31.
This patient on the left came back for her routine review with Dr. Liakas 4 weeks after her treatment. We understandably did not expect to see any significant changes yet-it is by all standards too early, after all! But we could not believe our eyes when we saw this: thicker hair and, yes, NEW HAIR! It makes us so happy to see such spectacular results. And we know that the results will improve further for a whole year.
What is VieStem Hair Micro-Transplantation?
VieStem Hair, a Micro-grafting procedure using your own cells is a safe and effective technique to combat androgenic alopecia and other hair loss problems. Our doctors use the Regenera Activa technology to extract the progenitor cells from a minute probe taken from the back of the scalp. These are processed to harvest these precious cells and then re-inject them in the areas that need to be treated. As part of the VieStem protocol, the micro-transplantation procedure is boosted with other technologies to speed up the results.
The whole process is purely natural, without any harmful effects, only using your body’s own tissue and fat cells to improve the skin of the scalp, to increase the density of the existing hair, and to stimulate the re-growth of new hair follicles. This treatment means the end of hair loss and helps the hair return to its usual cycle, stimulating new hair growth and improvement of the existing thickness and density of your hair.
What Happens during the treatment?
This regenerative system uses the patient’s own tissue (hence the name “autologous auto-transplantation”). It is obtained from an area of the scalp where the hair is still dense and not affected by baldness. Those hair follicle cells are still in abundance. A local anaesthetic is being injected prior to the procedure to that small area, usually behind the ear.
This is usually the area at the occipital region (the back of the head, closest to the neck). The tissues are being filtered, calibrated and mechanically processed with the Regenera Activa technology. This way we extract the active cells which then are being re- implanted in the areas with the thinning hair and hair loss.
The process is quick, involving a small number of injections into the thinning area. A local anaesthetic is injected locally to one tiny area prior to the procedure. The result of this method is activation of follicles that are towards the end-phase of their life, hence leading to thinning hair. As a result, they are become healthier, hair-promoting follicles, that will produce denser and thicker hair.
Apart from the fleeting discomfort of the injections, there is minimal pain, and unlike a traditional surgical hair transplant, the procedure is predominately non-invasive.
To that end, there is also no risk of scarring from where the tissue sample is taken. In addition, because the treatment uses cells from your own scalp, there is no risk of allergy or rejection.
Is it effective?
Here are a few out of the hundreds of our clients’ before-and-after pictures:
Please feel free to also watch the video clip and read articles in the press links further down this page for testimonials and reviews.
How long does the treatment take to work?
The whole process promotes the growth of new hair follicles and the first results can usually be observed within 6 to 7 months which can continue for up to 12 months after the procedure. As with traditional surgical hair transplants, and such is the way with the human hair cycle (it’s a slow process), any new hairs mature and thicken across the months from which they first appear.
Numerous clinical studies have shown improvements in hair count and scalp coverage after just one month. Although this varies very much between patients, some of our clients have experienced thicker, healthier hair in a similar period.
What is the down time?
There is minimal downtime and patients can return immediately to their daily activities. The very little circular marks at the back of the head from where the tissue has been obtained become crusts. they usually heal within 7-10 days. Small circular marks can remain, but these are usually covered by growing hair and become invisible over time.
How may sessions do I need?
The VieStem Hair consists of the micro-transplantation or micro-grafting (as it is also called). This is a one-off session, safe and completely natural, as no foreign materials are being injected, just the patients’ own cells and normal saline. The whole process promotes the growth of new hair follicles and the first results can be observed within 4-6 weeks, i.e. greater density of hair in the injected areas and thicker hair . We expect new hair to be appearing after 7 months, but the majority of our cases show new hair growth appearing already between 3-7 months. We expect this to be thickening further and and developing for a year.
As part of the VieStem Hair protocol, we offer 2 complimentary LED Therapy sessions and 2 Carboxy Therapy sessions. This is to nurture, boost, and speed-up the growth. We recommend these treatments, which are also stand-alone treatments and courses for hair loss management and to maintain healthy hair.
Of course, as with all these type of treatments, results vary from patient to patient, due to hereditary, age, lifestyle, and other factors and variables.
How much does it cost? What does it include?
Your VieStem Hair package includes an
initial consultation and assessment by our specialist doctor (video-call consultation for overseas clients)
the one-off micro-transplantation session with Regenera Activa
2 (complimentary) booster sessions with LED Light therapy and 2 (complimentary) sessions for Carboxy Therapy
a review appointment for final assessment and pictures
20% discount voucher for any future VieStem Hair Cycle by the same patient – valid for 6 years
The results are long- lasting and the procedure can be repeated after a year and every 2-6 years. The treatment is suitable for both men and women. It can also be applied to patients who already have had hair implants and/or hair transplant procedures. The price for the procedure is £2000. We also offer VieStem Plus – 6 probes instead of 3; this means 2 procedures of cell precessing and double amount of cells injected for £3000. This can be discussed during your consultation with the doctor to see if it would be needed or advisable.

If you cannot have lip filler injections, or you want to keep your lips fuller between your treatments, then read on, as this may be great news for you. Packed with water-binding substances to boost collagen and blood flow the Instant Effects Lip Plumper can give you an Instagram-ready pout that lasts up to two weeks.
You can now get closer to your perfect pout with luscious lips that look fuller in minutes. This no-sting gloss glides on gently, leaving your lips soft, hydrated and volumised. It is a very popular lip gloss because
Lips are 20% fuller in just 2 minutes
Effects last for 4 days
Instant hydration lasts up to 12 hours
You get a more defined lip line and cupid’s bow
It is not tested on animals and is vegan friendly
Does it work?
Our team have trialled the product -as we always do before deciding what can or should not make it onto the shelves in our clinics- and we have scrutinized the data. We are very pleased with the results and have added Instant Lip Plumper to our products to help you achieve 20% plumping of your lips in 2 minutes (fuller effect in one hour) giving a smoother, fuller appearance without stinging or aggravation. Significant results (in excess of 25%) within 2 minutes (full effects within 1 hour) and lasts for up to 4 days. Dry /cracked lips are instantly moisturised, nourished and prevented with regular use.
How it works
This advanced formula blends oxygen and hyaluronic spheres to increase volume and lock in moisture, leaving your lips soft and smooth with a healthy hint of colour. Unlike some lip volumisers, this patented technology contains no harsh irritants, so it’s gentle on your skin.
How To Use
On extraordinary thin lips cupid bow becomes more defined, lip line becomes more defined and any lines are diminished, there is an increase in colour. Lips actually grow in height (however 20% of not much is harder to really notice so definitely take a photo). On the plus side after several applications over a 2 week period the heightening effect is very much more pronounced as you ultimately get more than 20% (more like 29%). It takes slightly more time for the fewer and capillaries to deliver enough oxygen to cause the build in collagen in the subcutaneous layer.
On average lips the lips grow significantly in height, cupid bow becomes more defined, lip line becomes more defined and any lines are diminished, there is an increase in colour.
On luscious lips cupid bow becomes more defined, lip line becomes more defined and any lines are diminished and there is an increase in colour.
Where lips are not symmetrical and dive away quickly on the sides the sides will grow making lips more symmetrical. If there is a dip along the lip line somewhere this will fill out.
Should you have lines around the lip (e.g. smoker’s lines) apply the Lip plumper over these and they will diminish. When doing this is best to do at night.
When you first use your Instant Lip Plumper, click the button a few times to release the liquid. Smooth the gloss onto your lips using the brush provided. Your lips will look fuller within two minutes, and you’ll get the full effect within an hour. If using prior to lipstick application please wait 5 minutes after application and then remove any excess product from the lip. You will find that there is a cumulative build-up and longer lasting effects with continued use.

The ideal way to achieve wrinkle reduction is by replenishing lost volume. Unfortunately, treating individual wrinkles is often not enough to restore a youthful and fresh appearance. In order to counter the effects of gravity and regain a younger shape, the face needs real lifting. With Radiesse®, you welcome back your skin’s natural collagen to smooth out sagging effects. The unique formulation of Radiesse® stimulates the production of new collagen, which results in increased volume that may last a year or more in many patients*. Thanks to this method of wrinkle correction, Radiesse® is more and more becoming the favourite injectable filler of many patients and medical professionals.
* Individual results are dependent on age, skin type, lifestyle, metabolism and, of course, the area treated.
