Autologous Micrograft Treatment
While Autologous Micrografting Technology ® (AMT) has been widely used for many years to treat hair loss due to male pattern baldness, the benefits extend far beyond this use.
AMT is an innovative and effective method of repairing the cartilage deterioration that tends to occur in joints as we age.
With AMT, the medical professionals at Ageless Health Darwin are able to harvest some of your own healthy cartilage tissue, which is used to formulate your own personalised treatment.
