An Incredible Breakthrough In Treating Hair Loss
Lighthouse Medical Center is pleased to be offering Exosome therapy for hair loss. We believe this new therapy may provide much better results in treating hair loss based on our patient’s results.
Early results appear to be even better than PRP. Mesenchymal Stem Cell-derived exosomes are one of the many exciting new developments in regenerative medicine. In hair restoration, we have historically injected PRP to stimulate hair growth. PRP/PRF results depend on the concentration of growth factors in the patient’s blood and can be negatively affected by age. If you have more severe hair thinning/loss or a receding hairline, then an Exosomes treatment may get better results.
Achieve Great Hair at any age with Exosomes
Hair loss is such an issue that seems to have no end to it.
Many people face hair loss seasonally, some face it as a reaction or side effect to any drug or high-level treatment, while others simply have genetic issues linked to their excessive loss of hair. Whatever the cause is, this is a problem that is depressing and worrisome enough to give you sleepless nights in return.
But, thanks to the recent advancements in technology and medical sciences, we now have plenty of techniques and procedures that help us reverse our health issues and make life very easy for us! These treatments not only prove to be greatly beneficial for us but also because of their minimally invasive and less extensive natures, are considered to be quite efficient and professional ones.
One such procedure which is performed at the Aesthetics of Central Texas for the treatment of hair losses and hair growth is the Exosome Hair Restoration Therapy. This is considered to be a very recent yet highly efficient and perfect means of stopping hair losses.
What is the difference between PRP and Exosomes?
Applied post-procedure, Exosomes goes beyond PRP by leveraging RNA, growth factors, and its natural mechanism of action to activate cellular repair.
Potential Advantages of Exosomes vs PRP:
- Greater variety of Growth Factors: 450 in Exosomes vs 12 in PRP
- Growth Factors, mRNA and miRNA appear to be associated with the regeneration of skin and hair
- Exosomes are not donor age and/or health status dependent
- No blood draw or time-consuming on-site processing
- Anti-Inflammatory Properties
What is hair restoration using exosomes?
Aesthetic procedures that induce miccrotraumas to the scalp-follicle complex, followed by the application of exosomes, for the purpose of rejuvenated, thicker, and healthier hair.
What happens as we age that makes this technology important?
There is a natural decline in stem cells, collagen, as well as nerve cells, and blood vessels leading to weaker, thinner tissue, that has subsequently result in hair loss.
Resurfacing of the scalp leads to micro-injuries in the scalp and its underlying tissue layers. This results in causing the body’s own natural healing mechanisms to stimulate the release of growth factors that will likely lead to improvement in thicker and healthier hair.
What are exosomes?
Exosomes are micro-vesicles, about 1/1000th the size of a normal cell. Exosomes contain no DNA or nucleus. They are signaling agents used in cell-to-cell communication and signaling. Exosomes are known to activate several signaling pathways that are important in tissue regeneration, wound healing, and fracture repair. This effect is called paracrine signaling. Exosomes are used for therapeutic reasons and are a new therapy in Regenerative Medicine.
What are the results? How quickly does one see results?
Treatments Q 4 wk -Q 6 wk x 6-12 visits, there is a visual improvement, as long as you are consistent with your hair care and avoid exposure to environmental toxins, such as excessive sun exposure, tobacco, etc. Works best if hair loss occurred within the last 5 years.
Why combine the scalp resurfacing or micro-channeling treatments w/exosomes?
By stimulating the body’s own natural healing response and then adding additional growth factors through exosomes, results in an increase in cell metabolism & penetration, angiogenesis (new blood vessel growth), and anti‐inflammatory effects, increased blood and lymph microcirculation, the release of growth factors, collagen cells, elastin fibers, stem cells (body’s raw materials), and lipolysis (breakdown of fats). Basically, a slew of self‐regenerating processes occur, ultimately leading to a more heightened form of hair restoration.
MicroNeedling Therapy for Hair Restoration
Your laser skin resurfacing price will vary based on the treatment type you select. In your consultation, we will evaluate the treatment area while understanding your wants before reviewing the types of resurfacing. After this, we will help you decide on your resurfacing method and discuss costs. Lighthouse Medical Center often runs skin treatment specials and packages so ask about current specials in your appointment.
Am I A Candidate for Hair Rejuvenation with Exosomes?
Exosome hair regeneration treatments have shown good results for our Lighthouse Medical Center patients — both men and women. How do you know if this regenerative medicine Exosome Hair Regeneration Treatment is right for you? You may be a candidate for Exosome therapy if:
- You have thinning hair
- You have hair loss
- You are experiencing progressive hair loss
- You are too young for hair transplant surgery
- You are within the earlier stages of the hair loss cycle
- You want to take a natural, non-surgical approach to hair restoration
- You have tried other hair regrowth treatments with little or no success
