Im still very interested in this but im stil going to wait for more results before considering it, it's not THAT expensive i guess so maybe i should just take the plunge.
Isn't your regimen working for you? Duta, spironolactone, minoxidil, needling.

Im currently taking letrozole to get rid of the gyno i got from 200mg spironolactone and that is wreaking havoc on my hair right now, i intend on lowering the dosage to 100mg and hope i don't get gyno at that dosage. I need to give my regimen a solid year, if i still don't see an increase in density i don't know what my other options are tbh. If i got severe gyno from 200mg spironolactone i doubt i could handle estradiol so i will need to look at alternatives like this procedure, but hopefully come december or so my hair will have improved, right now toppik is doing a fantastic job at making my crown look dense though.

That's absolutely crazy man. I doubt regenera would really help in your case (although you never know!)

Atleast you tried everything.

Yeah i really wish i didn't have to go to such extremes to save my hair, but it's too important to me. The shed from letrozole is absolutely brutal though, im just going to take it for another few weeks and hope my gyno has reduced, i have already been on it a month so far with some minor improvement. My chest isn't sensitive or anything at all at 100mg, so i think that dosage of spironolactone would be safe for me and i won't develop gyno. I have been on dutasteride since november 2018 and oral min since october 2018, there has been some improvement but nothing radical, crown is still extremely thin.

If you can get maintenance one way or another, fill up the rest with a transplant. Hope you can achieve maintenance.

I definitely think i will maintain on my current regimen once i have stopped letrozole and all the hair i have shed comes back of course, but i really don't think im a good candidate for a transplant right now tbh. I don't think there would be many surgeons willing to give me one since it's extremely diffuse.

The point is to hook patients with the doctor using unproven cutting edging snake oil then after patient spent thousand of dollors with a discount, patient is recommended to proceed to FUT/FUE and the vicious circle starts till patient dies.

OK here is my update.

Not sure when I done it exactly. You can look back at when I announce to do it. Think it was about 2+ months ago.

Just some info about my situation:
Used Finasteride for 15+ years, then found out about the sides that trickled into my system over the years and how it had been effecting me big time for years. I quit and it took me 3+ months (with help from doctors) to get rid of the extreme sides and even more the withdrawal that came with quitting with Finasteride (see online for Finasteride syndrome). Any way after that was all good again I tried PRP but that was a total waste of my money and time.

Finasteride by the way did do wonders for my hair. But unfortunately changed me in a social retard and almost killed me. When I quit finasteride my hair started falling out like crazy again. Got thinner fast (front and back)!

Anyway I was left with nothing and tried Regenera Activa because the doctor promised me NO Sides and good results.
So basically it is the only thing I am "on".

My Verdict.
I see my hair structure being less thin. Also less hair is falling out. It is what PRP promised to be but was not. Is it the solution? No, not yet. But for the first time in my life I am very confident that they/we will get to a permanent solution. It may not be this but they are close. They need to tweak this or come with something new. Whatever, but this technique is getting us closer. I love the fact that it does not touch my hormone system or puts something in my body that is not mine.

I even think I maybe could hold my hair stable for 6 month or maybe a year (who knows). To soon to say but based on what I am seeing now it could be. I will keep you guys posted.

I have good weeks and sometimes some bad days. It really can go both ways but across the board its all better. The bad days are not as bad as they were and the good are just better.

RA is not bad, I would have done it again. And when it keeps going like this I would do it again after a year hoping for something new really solving it coming into the market in the meantime. I would say its (up until now) having a sort of "Finasteride light" effect. So yes it did work in my case. At least until now.

Good to know:
- I had 9 biopsies instead of 3. This is because 3 is NEVER enough to get enough material to cover your whole head. So yes that is 3 procedures in one go. I demanded this and I believe so should you. It does not cost a lot more time ..
- In my case the doctor made 3mm biopsies (not 2.5 mm which is way smaller. 3 mm is actually twice as much material as 2mm).
- Make sure to stitch the scars even if its small (3mm) read online about scaring and biopsies above 2.5mm stitching is recommended. This will save you recovery time and may save you a scar.
- Do NOT go to work for 2/3 days. Take rest. You will not be able to do sports for at least 1 week (maybe even 2).
- Even when doing 3 times as much work (9 biopsies, so 3 time centrifuge) it still took the doctor not even 45 minutes to finish it all. The price you should pay should never be more than about 1000 EUR. I bargained it to 1400 EUR but knowing what I know now .. I would try to go lower .. It is really a simple procedure .. Expect costs to get lower and lower fast ..
-Make sure you work with experts (even now that the procedure is simple), you need to know everything is sterile etc. There is a lot of blood involved and it needs to be done correctly to avoid infections. The pain is not that bad.
- Many places to get this done, do not settle for the first place in your country (maybe a country nearby has much lower prices). Germany for example has multiple places.

I will not be answering questions, please just look back at (my) previous posts .. I am sure its all in there ..
Also understand I am not a doctor and the above is not advice. You need to talk to a doctor before doing anything.

Good luck.






Quick update. Still the same as reported before. Just little more confidence that this could work for me, because of less "bad days".

UPDATE

Still the same, but again a bit better. Much fewer bad days and each hair looks thicker and scalp just feels much better.

I think I had it done somewhere end of nov 2019 (look at how it was done in the string of this post). So almost 6 months now. When this keeps on going like this for another 6 months I would call regenera activa an absolute success (for me)!

Still don't know of course how the rest of the year will be. Things can always flip around fast. And, by the way, we also don't know how many time you can keep doing this and have the same results. So perhaps it only works the first time ?! Don't know.

Also am wondering how the others are doing. Updates ? I believe his name was Alexander ? Can you give us an update too ? thanks.

I did it too. 7 months ago now, it never did a god damn thing, not even slow shedding.

Update from me.
Although it seemed to have some really positive effects in the beginning, like hair feeling stronger and scalp feeling healthier, it has completely leveled out. I'm now back at the point where I was before I had the procedure. All in all it has been a disappointment to be honest. Especially when the first months were very promising. I feel it was just a temporary boost for the scalp but the stem cells/nutrients/whatever have just depleted. To repeat it would be too expensive and I just can't keep cutting pieces out of my neck. Too bad, I really had my hopes up for this one....

Time to go back and have another session where they continue pulling out follicles in your donor area, grind them and injecr! :) rinse lather and repeat.

To be honest I am surprised people put hopes in these unproven snake oil treatments. It can only results in disappointment and waste of money.

Your experience is very useful. So we can finally draw a conclusion that its a extremely expencive snake oil.

I do want to add that I am also having "weaker hair". So in a way perhaps also here it could be getting less effective.
In the past months I had this before, even sometimes a bad week with more hairloss, but it would pick back up again.

Here is hoping it stays working because if it only works for 5 months or 6 months it is totally useless. Even at a much lower cost like PRP (say EUR 250) I would not consider it if it only works for couple of months. Because I can imagine this not being something you want to have done 10 times (for the back of your head but also as it takes time to recover).

But we will see.
