Does Biologics Therapy Work for Hair Loss?

Hair loss can be a difficult reality to accept. Many of us view thick hair as a sign of youth and attractiveness. However, when men and women begin to experience a receding hairline or thinning hair, self-confidence can dip. Every year, billions of dollars are spent on hair loss treatments — many of which are ineffective and even potentially harmful.

Popular hair loss solutions include medications like Rogaine and Propecia. Other, more intense methods consist of hair transplant surgery or laser therapy. Luckily, a new alternative option has gained attention as a potential combatant against hair loss. Biologics therapy is an exciting and upcoming care method that is being explored in several conditions and disease areas. Biologics therapy centers around the use of extracellular vesicles, which are lipid bilayer-delimited particles that are naturally released from almost all types of cells. These naturally secreted particles contain critical information from cells. The vesicles are taken up by other distant cells, where they can affect cell function and behavior with the protein, DNA, and RNA messages they carry.

This ability enables these vesicles to be isolated and used in a variety of care practices. Vesicles used as an alternative care option are typically made by growing stem cells in a culture. Then taking the media where they grow, and then eliminating the stem cells. Due to their small size, the media is then centrifuged to concentrate the vesicles for injection.

Biologics Therapy and Potential Growth Factors

Due to these vesicles holding critical cell function messages, these carriers can be modified to deliver specific instructions to cells located in the scalp. Our on-staff nurse practitioner will provide direct injections right into the scalp and area(s) of hair loss.

Biologics therapy uses cellular vesicles that are derived from young stem cells to promote healthy behavior in older cells and assist in calming a negative immune system or correcting its proper response. When injected, these vesicles contain the building blocks to help facilitate tissue repair, positive cell stimulation, and the natural restoration of hair follicles on a cellular level.

With each injection, billions of vesicles are introduced into the designated area. Multiple sessions may be necessary for cell function and behavior to take hold, however, many people start to notice positive changes between two and three months. As a safe, outpatient procedure that can be provided here in our clinic, patients can expect some mild soreness or bruising to the injection site a few days post-injection.
