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 and increasing treatment option has shown successful results for stopping hair loss and encouraging hair regrowth. Exosome therapy is an exciting and upcoming treatment method that is being explored in several conditions and disease areas. Exosomes are a type of extracellular vesicle that contains critical information from the cells that secrete them. They are taken up by distant cells, where they can affect cell function and behavior with the protein, DNA, and RNA messages they carry.
This ability enables these exosomes to be isolated and used in a variety of rejuvenation practices. Exosomes 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 exosomes for injection.
How Do Exosomes Promote Hair Growth?
Due to exosomes carrying critical cell function messages, these carriers can be modified to deliver specific instructions to cells located in the scalp. Our nurse practitioner Laura will provide direct injections of exosomes right into the scalp and area(s) of hair loss.
As exosomes for therapy use are derived from young stem cells, they aid in rejuvenating the older cells and assist in calming a negative immune system or correcting its proper response. When injected, exosomes will trigger healing, positive cell stimulation, and natural regeneration of hair follicles.
With each injection, billions of exosomes are introduced into the designated area. Multiple treatments may be necessary to see results, however, many people start to notice regrowth 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.
