Male pattern baldness is a common but frustrating concern that affects men as they grow older due to various underlying issues. However, exosomes harvested from your body can reverse male pattern baldness and help you grow lush and thick hair.

What is male pattern baldness?

Male pattern baldness is the gradual loss of hair from your scalp due to changing hormone levels as you grow older. Also known as androgenetic alopecia, this condition affects over 50 million men in the United States. The primary reason for male pattern baldness is the hormonal changes in your body as you grow older, leading to the gradual shrinkage of hair follicles in your scalp. As your hair follicles shrink, your hair grows out progressively thinner and shorter until they stop growing altogether.

Male pattern baldness usually progresses in seven distinct stages. You should ideally seek treatment at the earliest stage possible for the easy reversal of hair loss. The following are the stages of male pattern baldness:

  • Stage 1: No hair loss
  • Stage 2: Minor hairline recession
  • Stage 3: Deeper temporal recession and the loss of hair from the crown
  • Stage 4: Frontal and temporal hair loss with a larger bald patch
  • Stage 5: Frontal baldness starts meeting the bald patch at the crown
  • Stage 6: Almost complete hair recession at the front and crown
  • Stage 7: Complete baldness with thin tufts of hair at the sides

What is exosome therapy for hair loss?

Exosome therapy is a minimally invasive procedure wherein exosomes are harvested from human stem cells and injected into strategically-chosen areas around your scalp. The exosomes carry growth factors that activate your hair follicles and encourage hair regrowth, reversing the male pattern baldness signs.

How Exosomes Work

Exosomes are extracellular vesicles responsible for cellular communications. They transmit messaging signals to other cells to induce certain behaviors. These exosomes are harvested from the human stem cells, purified, and injected into the parts of your body requiring treatment. They’re incredibly effective because they carry growth factors, i.e., the components responsible for your body’s natural growth and healing activities.

Exosomes are incredibly small and nimble, so they easily cross barriers that normal cells can’t cross. They target the existing stem cells in your scalp to induce miniaturized hair growth and the production of new hairs. While there haven’t yet been conclusive studies, anecdotal evidence also suggests that exosomes can potentially reverse complete baldness, which hasn’t yet been accomplished by other treatment modalities.

Exosome Therapy vs. PRP Therapy

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is another effective treatment for hair loss, but it’s not as effective as exosome therapy. PRP treatment is similar to exosomes in one way—they both deliver nutrients to sites of thinning hair. While exosomes are harvested from donor human stem cells, PRP is harvested from your own blood sample. The PRP contains growth factors that activate hair regeneration. 

Exosome Treatment Details

The exosomes are harvested from another part of your body, purified, and then injected into carefully-chosen regions around your scalp. We apply local anesthesia before the treatment, so you don’t feel any pain or discomfort. Your scalp may feel sore and numb for about 24 hours, and you should avoid strenuous workouts for a day, but you can resume most of your daily activities immediately.

Exosomes for hair loss generally start producing new hairs in 2 to 3 months, but the hair regrowth may continue for over a year. Patients can get multiple treatments for better results, with each treatment spaced 6-8 months apart. Your doctor will curate the ideal treatment schedule based on your unique needs.
