Future of Hair Loss Treatment
Exosome therapy, the hair loss treatment of the future, is now available at Young Again Aesthetics. In addition to our state-of-the-art PRP hair loss treatment, we now offer the latest, most innovative, all-natural way to restore hair follicles: exosome hair loss treatments. Early results appear to be even better than PRP.
By injecting exosomes, 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.
The exosomes utilized at Young Again Aesthetics are a purified mesenchymal stem cell (MSC)-derived exosome product from a single, peri-natal donor that contains a multitude of growth factors that can enhance natural healing and promote hair and skin rejuvenation/regeneration.
What are exosomes?
Exosomes are tiny micro-vesicles. They're about 1/1000th the size of a typical cell in the body. Exosomes are used by the body for inter cellular communications, helping the cells work together more efficiently.
They contain proteins (growth factors), mRNA (blueprint for protein production) and micro-RNA (on-off switch for specific protein production). These factors help stimulate the regenerative potential of the body not just for hair thickening but for a variety of other applications. Exosomes provide a natural and comprehensive activation of the body's healing processes by systematically activating the complex array of cell signals required to restore and maintain tissue health.
Why Consider Exosome Hair Loss Treatment?
For decades, scientists have worked tirelessly in their attempt to develop a permanent way to regrow thinning hair. Most hair regeneration products, such as popular drugs like minoxidil and finasteride, are only capable of providing temporary improvement. And, they must be used religiously every day, as discontinued use of such products can sometimes result in even more rapid loss of one's hair.
In addition to the above, individuals also had the option of restoring their hair surgically. But autologous single follicle and follicular unit transplantation (colloquially known as "plugs") is not only extremely painful, and very expensive, it is also highly time consuming.

- Progressive hair loss
- Want to increase their hair volume
- Want to proactively prevent hair loss from occurring
- Too young for hair transplant surgery
- Tried other hair regrowth treatments with little or no success
Exosome Hair Loss Treatment Procedure
The area of the scalp affected by the hair loss is first prepped with a topical anesthetic to minimize the tenderness of the procedure. The exosomes are then gently injected into the patient's scalp. In order to help the exosomes migrate to the precise follicles in need of them, PRP may also be injected, in the same solution as the exosomes, into the affected skin area.
The process of obtaining PRP involves a blood draw and a centrifuge. To yield PRP, blood is drawn from your arm, then spun down in a centrifuge (a machine that spins at high speeds to help separate blood components). After centrifuging, the plasma rises to the top, and the lower part of the plasma is the PRP. The concentrated PRP also contains growth factors and a matrix for which the exosomes can migrate.
While some mild soreness may persist for about a week following treatment, patients are able to return to their normal daily routine as soon as a day after their Exosome Hair Loss Treatment. It is recommended that for about a week, during which times the scalp cells will initialize regeneration, activities that cause sweating should be avoided.
Just like any other medical procedure, individual results from Exosome Hair Loss Treatment will vary on a case-by-case basis. Initial results may take up to 3 months and repeat treatments of PRP and/or exosomes will be required in the future. An individual treatment plan will be discussed with each patient.
