Halt your hair loss with VieStem Hair and Regenera Activa!

11-06-2018 | Posted in: Hair Treatments, New Treatments

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. Thanks to VieStem Hair with Regenera Activa, 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, which were based on case studies with our patients, with experts 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 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 your 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 four 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 with Regenera Activa?

VieStem Hair is a safe and effective technique to combat androgenic alopecia using your own cells. 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.

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 downtime?

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 Carboxytherapy
  • 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 £2,000. We also offer VieStem Plus – 6 probes  instead of 3; this means 2 procedures of cell precessing and double amount of cells injected for £3,000. This can be discussed during your consultation with the doctor to see if it would be needed or advisable.
