All About Exosomal Hair Restoration

All About Exosomal Hair Restoration

Your hair plays a big role in your appearance, affecting how you feel each and every day. It’s no wonder that losing your hair can lead to frustration, anger, embarrassment, and loss of self-confidence.    

At Honest Hair Restoration with offices serving Bradenton, Tampa, and Sarasosta, Florida, Martin Maag, MD and our team of hair restoration specialists understand the different ways hair loss impacts your life. Using a breakthrough technique, exosomal hair restoration, our team tackles hair loss on the cellular level. 

Keep reading to learn more about exosomes and how this therapy is revolutionizing hair restoration.  

What does “exosomal” mean and how do exosomes affect hair?

Exosomes are tiny messenger molecules called micro-vesicles produced by mesenchymal stem cells. They play an important role in stem cell communication and behavior. 

At about one-thousandth of the size of an average cell, each microscopic exosome contains growth factors and other materials that trigger regeneration in the targeted treatment areas. Other cells react to the communication signals exosomes send out, changing their behavior and “switching on” when directed by the exosome. 

When Dr. Maag injects exosomes and other growth factors into your scalp, these helpful cells signal your hair follicles to regenerate and regrow hair. There’s no surgery required, and most people tolerate treatment well.  

What’s more? Clinical studies show that not only does exosomal hair restoration trigger new hair growth, but it also creates thicker hair. If you’re self-conscious about thinning hair, exosomal hair restoration may be the solution you’ve been seeking.   

Are exosomes safe?

Yes! At Honest Hair Restoration, our team uses exosomes acquired from state-of-the-art medical labs according to regulations and standards established by the FDA and the American Association of Tissue Banks. In addition, all samples are screened using FDA-approved methods. We’re happy to provide more detailed information during your consultation. 

What is recovery like after exosomal hair restoration?

One of the best things about exosomal hair restoration is that there’s no downtime required. You can get back to your normal activities immediately, including showering. 

Some patients notice mild tenderness, redness, or swelling at the injection site. This usually resolves quickly, and to help manage any discomfort, you can take over-the-counter medications, like acetaminophen. 

How long before I see results from exosomal hair restoration?

After your exosomal hair restoration treatment, you might notice new natural hair growth as early as two to three months after your session. You can expect new hair growth to continue in the year following your treatment, with the most noticeable results appearing around six months after your session.

Dr. Maag generally has patients come in for an evaluation about three to six months after your last treatment to check your progress and determine if an additional session of exosomal injections is recommended based on the growth of your hair. 

Based on your goals and your needs, he may also recommend additional treatments, such as:
