Hair loss affects tens of millions of Americans, with 50 percent of women experiencing hair loss at some point in their lives and 60 percent of men experiencing hair loss by the age of 50. Thinning hair, a receding hairline and balding areas make many people self-conscious about their appearance, but hair loss doesn’t have to be permanent.

At The Maas Clinic, we offer innovative treatments to combat hair loss and restore fuller, thicker hair. Among these hair restoration treatments is exosome therapy, a highly effective regenerative medicine that aids in hair growth.

What Are Exosomes?

Exosomes are a kind of extracellular vesicle (EV), which are cellular components released into the extracellular space (outside the cell membrane). Exosomes can signal for cells to react in specific ways and promote cell regeneration and detoxification.

What Can Exosome Hair Restoration Treat?

Exosome therapy can treat various types of hair loss (alopecia), including androgenetic alopecia (female-pattern and male-pattern baldness). It is ideal for regrowing hair in patients in the early stages of hair loss.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Each hair naturally grows out of a tube-like structure called a follicle, and it cycles through the stages of hair growth over time.

There Are Four Stages of Hair Growth:

  1. Anagen (growth phase), which typically lasts three to five years
  2. Catagen (transition phase), which typically lasts about 10 days
  3. Telogen (resting phase), which typically lasts three months
  4. Exogen (shedding phase), which typically lasts two to five months

Hair follicles age each time they pass through this growth cycle, becoming smaller and producing more brittle hair with each new growth phase. This cycle can also be disrupted due to hormonal changes, hereditary factors and illnesses. These factors can cause the follicles to become dormant and remain in the resting (telogen) phase. In this stage, hair does not grow. As more and more follicles are affected, this results in noticeable hair loss.

How Does Exosome Therapy Work for Hair Loss?

Exosome therapy encourages the rebuilding and repair of damaged hair follicles without the need for surgery or hormones. It stimulates hair follicles in the resting phase (telogen) to enter the growth phase (anagen) and lengthens the duration of this phase. This allows the follicles to produce stronger, healthier and longer hair.

Where Do the Exosomes Used for Hair Restoration Come From?

Exosomes are harvested from birthing tissue (umbilical cords and placentas) from the highest quality human donors. Our products come from Vitti Labs, a tissue bank that manufactures these exosome products under FDA regulations of human cells, tissues and cellular and tissue-based products (FDA HCT/P 361 guidelines) and the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) regulations. They also send 20 percent of every lot of products for endotoxin, sterility and environmental testing by a third-party CLIA-certified laboratory.

Will I Need Downtime After Exosome Hair Therapy?

No downtime is needed after this convenient hair restoration treatment. You can come in for a quick treatment and then continue your day as usual. However, patients should not take anti-inflammatory medications for three weeks after exosome treatment.

How Long Does It Take for Exosomes to Start Hair Growth?

You may begin to see new hair growth in two to three months after exosome therapy. Full results generally become visible after six months, with new hair growth continuing for an entire year after treatment.

How Long Does It Take for Exosomes to Start Hair Growth?

How Many Exosome Treatments Are Needed for Hair Restoration?

Most patients achieve their desired hair restoration after just one exosome therapy session. We can evaluate your results after six months to determine if a second exosome treatment will be beneficial.

Is Exosome Hair Therapy Permanent?

The exosomes remain in your body for six to eight months after this therapy, but the resulting hair restoration may be permanent. However, as this is a newer hair loss treatment, there isn’t yet adequate data to confirm the permanence of exosome therapy results.

What Is the Difference Between PRP and Exosomes for Hair Restoration?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy and exosome therapy are both viable treatments for hair loss. PRP involves isolating the healthiest platelets from your blood and using them to stimulate hair growth. However, the success of this treatment can depend on your age and overall health, and it generally involves multiple treatments to achieve optimal results.

Exosome therapy eliminates the need for a blood draw and offers the benefit of a shorter treatment time. It delivers a consistent product and healing potential with young growth factors to stimulate and regenerate the hair follicles.

At your consultation, we will be able to evaluate your medical history, health and type of hair loss to help determine the best hair restoration treatment option for your needs. In some cases, PRP and exosome therapies can be combined together.

Are There Other Uses for Exosome Therapy Besides Hair Restoration?

Exosome Therapy for Anti-aging

Exosome therapy can be used as an anti-aging treatment to rejuvenate the skin and restore a more youthful appearance. It can address multiple signs of aging and promote the production of collagen for firmer, smoother skin.

Exosome Therapy for Excelled Wound Healing

Exosomes offer a versatile treatment for excelled wound healing, which can accelerate and improve the efficacy of the body’s healing process. This therapy can aid in healing multiple types of wounds, including punctures, surgical wounds, abrasions, lacerations and more.
