With aesthetic medicine at its peak in popularity, men and women of all ages and backgrounds are looking to cosmetic specialists and doctors alike, to tackle all different types of appearance issues and alleviate common symptoms of aging. Aging is a fact of life; something that every man or woman will have to come to terms with eventually in life. And as humans, aging can cause us to lose our once youthful appearance, and lead to the slow degradation of cellular tissue. This can present itself in a number of different ways, often dictated by our genetics and lifestyle habits, some people may experience wrinkles or skin abrasions and dark spots, while others might begin to lose their hair as well as their slim figure.
When it comes to aging, in both men and women, one of the most common issues has got to be hair loss. Some men and women are simply genetically predisposed to lose their hair over time, as they age, and while mankind has been seeking an answer to permanent hair loss for decades on decades, very few treatments have actually been proven to be effective. However, at Alluring Image, we are excited to announce the introduction of a revolutionary new treatment for hair loss, amongst both men and women, known as Exosomes Therapy for Hair Loss. a procedure that patients from all over the world have been raving about. In this article we will be exploring the effectiveness of the exosome procedure, and how it actually helps to tackle hair loss.
What are Exosomes?
Exosomes are extracellular vesicles that are produced by mesenchymal stem cells which are involved in cell communication. Other cells react to the messaging signals from the exosomes and will change their behavior accordingly. Scientists are now able to isolate and deliver these beneficial signalers directly rather than the stem cells themselves. Exosomes are isolated from donated human amniotic mesenchymal stem cells and purified using proprietary processing.
The unique benefit of these exosomes is that they are stem cell-derived and bring a wide array of growth factors. Because they’re so small and nimble, exosomes can remain hidden in the bloodstream, and carry multiple doses of proteins across barriers that cells are not able to cross. The procedure to combat hair loss works in a similar fashion to the treatment of PRP hair restoration, in which patients have their own blood separated into specific growth factors and injected into their scalp to help restore the hair growth and overall function of hair follicles.
How Does Exosomes Hair Loss Therapy Work?
One of the most promising, and interesting methods that has been recently researched, has got to be exosomes PRP. The use of exosomes for the treatment of hair loss is entirely new, and has been able to shown quite a bit of promise – at least when it comes to earlier stage results with the newer patients. By injecting exosomes and growth factors, it has been clinically shown to help regenerate and regrow hair as a treatment for hair loss in both men and women in the earlier stages of hair loss. according to scientists close to the subject, exosomes target stem cells within the scalp along what is known as the “bulge area”, where the hair follicles and their activation can result in the growth of existing miniature hairs as well as the growth of new hairs too.
Some of the earliest adopters of the use of exosomes PRP solution has been those doctors who perform hair restoration surgery. Once they transplant hair from one area to the other, they will then inject the exosomes solution in most cases, patients have experienced some amazing results, meaning faster hair growth, as well as an overall quicker onset time. In addition to being faster a more efficient, patient have been able to experience far more robust hair growth overall, than they would ever expect to see with traditional PRP alone. In addition, there have been anecdotal results of hair growth in completely bald scalps, a feat previously not achieved with other injectable hair loss treatments.
Stem Cell Growth Factors
Researchers have been able to already identify a number of amazing stem cell growth factors that are present and help restore hair through the exosomes PRP process. These useful growth factors include:
- MIP-1: A recruiter of mononuclear cells
- VEGF: A stimulator to encourage blood vessel formation
- SCF: An encourager of stem cell and melanocyte growth
- FGF: A growth factor that signals cells to encourage biological development
- TGFß3: A gene variant that, among other things, converts inflammatory T Cells into anti-inflammatory T-Cells.
According to the results of most patients, following the treatment patients should begin to see results in as little as two to three months following their procedure, with new hair growth continuing on for as long as a year after. Results will typically peak approximately 6 months after treatment. Following your last treatment, after 6-8 months, we will generally recommend an evaluation appointment to determine if further treatment may be needed and how exactly your hair growth is doing.
Patients can typically expect to experience fuller hair overall, and even the growth in spots where hair hasn’t grown in some time, where the follicles may have been dormant. In fact, according to both clinical and anecdotal results, patients suffering from alopecia areata have seen excellent results from treatment as well.
