Mesenchymal Stem Cell (MSC) Exosomes are the new frontier of regenerative medicine, which led to the emerging exosome treatment for hair restoration therapy. Exosomes deliver more than 1,000+ signaling proteins that are able to revive hair follicles and regenerate hair growth.

exosomes for hair

The exosome therapy treatment takes less than an hour, and there is no downtime. We use exosomes which are sourced from amniotic mesenchymal stem cells. The exosomes are mixed into a saline solution serum that is injected into the scalp, specifically to areas of thinning.  We utilize 10 billion+ exosomes per ml. Patients have seen results in as little as 2-3 months.

What are Exosomes?

  • Regenerative MSC-derived lipid vesicles
  • Derived from donated human mesenchymal stem cells
  • Involved in cell-cell communication
  • Approximately 30-150nm size (sterile filtered)
  • Delivers 1,000+ growth factor proteins

Cells vs. Exosomes

Exosomes are cell-derived vesicles that are present in many and perhaps all eukaryotic fluids, including blood, urine, and cultured medium of cell cultures.

exosome versus cell

Exosomes Are Not Small Cells:

  • Does not contain DNA
  • Does not contain Mitochondria
  • Does not contain Golgi Apparatus
  • ~1,000 the size of a cell (can be sterile filtered)
  • Packaged inside cellular endosomes and secreted
  • Direct cell-to-cell communication

What do Exosomes Deliver?

More than 1,000 signaling proteins

  • Anti-inflammatory cytokines
  • Angiogenic growth factors
  • Anti-tumor signals
  • Inhibit cell death
  • Regenerative & healing signals

Messenger RNA (mRNA) – ON Switch

  • Turn on regenerative mechanisms
  • Turn on anti-inflammatory cytokines
  • Turn on angiogenic growth factors
  • Many other signals

Micro RNA (miRNA) – OFF Switch

  • Turn off chronic inflammatory cytokines
  • Turn off matrix catabolic enzymes
  • Many other signals

Key Advantages of Exosomes

  • Can travel via systematic therapy without risk of clumping
  • Deliver miRNA and mRNA
  • Easy to administer, store, freeze (out of the box stem cell therapy!)
  • Influence growth of target cells
  • Promote regeneration
  • Anti-inflammatory
