Exosomes for Hair Loss

Exosome and growth factor injections have 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. Request a complimentary consultation to learn more today!

About the Exosome for Hair Loss Treatment

EV’s are cell-derived vesicles that are present in many eukaryotic fluids, including blood, urine, and cultured medium of cell cultures. They are responsible for direct cell to cell communication. Extracellular vesicles provide a natural and comprehensive activation of the body’s healing processes by activating the complex array of cell signals required to restore and maintain tissue health.

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. Exosome therapy may begin promoting natural hair growth in as little as two to three months. New hair growth can continue over the course of a year, with the most noticeable results usually being seen six months after treatment has been administered.

Although not specifically FDA approved for hair loss, extracellular vesicles have shown promising clinical results for treating hair loss from physicians around the world. *Individual results may vary.

Case Study – Male Pattern Baldness

Patient: 46 year old Male


  • 2ml of xoGlo extracellular vesicles, diluted to 10ml with saline
  • Treatment given approximately 0.5cm apart
  • Results shown are at 2 weeks post procedure


At 2 weeks, patient has already shown new hair growth.*

More Case Studies

Male Pattern Baldness

Patient: 43 year old male with 

receding frontal hair line as well as thinning of the crown area typical of male pattern baldness


  • Applied 5cc xoGlo EV’s diluted 1:1 treatment 1cm apart evenly across the frontal hair line as well as the crown.


  • Performed microneedling on patient’s head at a depth of 1.0 to create additional trauma in the treatment areas.

Noticeable results first observed 3 days out from initial treatment on the crown of thread where hair was still present but thin 

while noticeable results were observed at 2 weeks in the frontal area where hair was fully missing. Significant filling and coverage was observed on the crown area at 17 days from initial treatment.*

Female Androgenic Hair Loss

Patient: 31 year old female with long standing history of diffuse genetic hair loss (androgenetic alopecia).


  • Single treatment with exosomes and micro needling
  • 2ml xoGlo EV’s diluted with 8ml sterile saline
  • Used 31 gauge needle with 10 1ml insulin syringe
  • Treatmen t0.1cc per treated site approximately 1cm apar

    At one month, patient has already shown new hair growth.*

    *Individual results may vary.

How are exosome treatments different from PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) treatments?

PRP or platelet rich plasma begins with centrifuging the patient’s blood in order to concentrate the growth factors and platelets naturally present in the body. The drawback of using PRP is it does not provide any stem cells or exosomes because as we age our bodies contain less and less stem cells in our blood. In addition to age being a factor, the patient’s health is also very critical to the quality of PRP harvested.

Before PRP was developed, stem cells would come from fat collected during liposuction. However, that process was painful and more expensive with the patient having to undergo two procedures. Again, the patient’s age and overall health came into play with the quantity and quality of the stem cells available.

We use exosomes which are sourced from amniotic mesenchymal stem cells. These exosomes are cryofrozen and packaged in a sterile vial ready for use.

Can exosomes be used for Alopecia Areata?

Yes. Clinical and anecdotal results have shown tremendous efficacy for when exosome therapy is utilized.

More About Exosome for hair loss treatment and results

Our exosomes are an extracellular signal product isolated from human bone marrow MSCs that contains growth factors and extracellular vesicles including exosomes.

Extracellular vesicles are 30-150 nm in size and are involved in direct cell-to-cell communication.

  • Provide over 1,000 regulatory proteins
  • Involved in cell-to-cell communication
  • Approximately 30-150nm in size (sterile filtered)
  • Natural signals with no preservatives

Growth factors and EVs, including exosomes, are known to stimulate bioactivity and direct cellular communication.

The exosomes are isolated from living human bone marrow mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) donors. The extracellular vesicles are purified using proprietary cGMP processing and are sterile filtered and tested per USP<71> sterility testing.

For hair loss, we utilize 400 plus billion exosomes per vial. We have found that a 400 billion exosomes product is more than sufficient to regenerate hair growth.

Exosomes are present 6 to 8 months after the final treatment. We typically recommend waiting 6 to 8 months after the last treatment to re-evaluate and before potentially performing another treatment of exosome injections if it is necessary.

There are no contraindications for exosome injections. The only restriction is to avoid aspirin, naproxen, ibuprofen, and other NSAIDs for 3 weeks following the procedure. Following the procedure, you may go home and shower. Be aware the treated area may be tender. Many patients return to work or their daily routine the same day.

Currently there are no large direct studies that can show exosomes or stem cells do not cause cancer, but there are studies where stem cells have been utilized to treat cancer, and the conclusion from these studies is that since the stem cells work to suppress cancer cells, it is assumed that they will neither help proliferate cancer cells nor cause the formation of cancer cells.
