As per the American Hair Research Society, 50% women begin to lose their hair by the age of 50. In case of men, approximately two-thirds of them start experiencing at least slightest of hair loss by the time they’re about to reach the age of 35.
You might have noticed that your hair is thinning, falling out, or that it has already fallen out – and you might be devastated about this. We understand – your hair is an important factor in your appearance, and the state and condition of your hair will affect your self-esteem. So it’s no wonder that losing your hair, or even having to worry about future hair loss, can make you feel sad, angry, frustrated, and embarrassed.
There are two FDA-approved medications for treating hair loss: finasteride and minoxidil. These drugs have to be taken consistently in the long run and yet, the outcomes are inconsistent. Each of these drugs has some noticeable and troublesome side effects as well:
Minoxidil can cause dryness & itching on your scalp.
Finasteride can give rise to sexual dysfunction in men.
Another alternative is hair transplant is but it involves cuts in the scalp as well as longer duration for recovery. Moreover, a hair transplant is quite costlier and might leave scars too.
You want thicker, fuller and healthier hair without the risks. We offer two optiosn with results that are dramatically better with dense hair growth being a sure-shot possibility: Exosome Therapy and PRP.
Exosome Therapy for Hair Restoration
At Therapeutic Aesthetics Toronto, we always look for the best, most advanced, and most cutting-edge treatments for our patients. Introducing a breakthrough technique in our medical spa offerings: exosome therapy for hair restoration.
Exosome therapy for hair restoration addresses hair loss at the cellular level. Exosomes are nanoparticles that are released by nearly all of the cells in your body. Exosomes help cells communicate with each other so that cells can work together to take care of your body. Just as your skin cells have their own type of exosome, your hair cells also have their own type. Hair cell exosomes contain all the healthy components that make up hair cells, and they are used to communicate with each other for healthy hair function, including growth and pigment production.
Our exosome therapy uses BENEV Exosome treatments, which feature ExoSCRT™, an innovative technology composed of 99% of pure, refined exosome. These hypoallergenic and paraben-free products are designed to quickly absorb into the skin, delivering the concentrated power of more than five billion exosomes. The BENEV treatments are leading cutting-edge biotech breakthroughs in the world of skin regeneration and rejuvenation. The BENEV line of Exosome treatment products has been accepted by many of the leading regulatory boards – an exclusive accomplishment at the time of writing.
How does exosome therapy for hair restoration work?
Exosome therapy for hair restoration essentially triggers your hair to activate its natural growth process, which is why it has a lot of potential as a treatment for health restoration. When hair exosomes are injected into your scalp, they can penetrate your hair follicles, communicating with them to regenerate and regrow your hair.
Exosome therapy for hair restoration has many benefits: it is minimally invasive, with no recovery time needed whatsoever – you can even shower immediately following your treatment. It is also virtually painless (especially with the application of a topical anesthetic). Finally, research has shown that not only does this therapy trigger new hair growth, but it also pushes your hair follicles to create thicker hair.
If you are looking for a way to treat your thinning, falling-out hair, exosome therapy for hair restoration may be the perfect treatment for you.
When will I see the results from my exosome treatment?
Typically, clients start noticing natural hair growth about two to three months after their exosome treatment. After that, you will start seeing dramatic results about six months in, with results improving steadily up to the first year following treatment.
Am I the ideal candidate for exosome therapy procedure?
The best way to discover if this therapy is right for you is by booking a complimentary consultation at our medical spa. Our expert team can help you identify your needs and help set you up with the right treatment to treat your hair loss issues. We may advise you to get exosome therapy by itself, or we may recommend this therapy in conjunction with one of our other therapies, such as PRP, to help you get the results you desire.

PRP HAIR RESTORATION
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration involves taking a sample of your own blood and putting it in a centrifuge to spin at high speed, thereby separating out the platelets from the red blood cells. The concentrated platelets are then injected into areas where you have thinning or balding patches on your scalp. These injections stimulate new cell growth in the area which helps promote healthy hair follicles and encourages new hairs to grow back thicker and fuller than before.
In a 2014 survey, researchers surveyed and observed men with baldness who used different approved medications. However, they saw only a negligible improvement in their hair growth. Though only after 4 PRP treatments, they showed approximately 30% higher hair growth in the thinning areas.
A 2017 Italy-based study also reported that male patients attained tremendous hair growth and denser hair restoration in scalp areas on which the doctors had used the PRP therapy.
The procedure itself takes about an hour depending on how many areas need treatment, but results may not be seen for several months after treatment has been completed due to the slow process of regrowth. However, most people report seeing positive results within 6-12 months with continued maintenance sessions every 4-6 months thereafter for optimal results.
In addition to promoting new hair growth, PRP therapy also helps reduce inflammation in the scalp which can lead to healthier skin overall as well as improved circulation. This further aids in stimulating healthy follicle activity, leading to stronger strands of hair over time.
Additionally, since this type of treatment uses your own blood it eliminates any risk associated with allergic reactions or side effects that could occur with other types of treatments, like medications or topical solutions containing harsh chemicals that could potentially damage delicate strands even further if used incorrectly.
As PRP is injected into the scalp, it stimulates the hair follicles to grow with the seven growth factors it contains. This makes the hair grow and reduces the hair falling issues. These platelets also have the effect of thickening your hair and strengthening it.
Usually, it takes a few weeks for this treatment to show effective results. The treatment is known to increase specific proteins in your body which amplifies the speed of your healing process.
As the blood plasma along with rich platelets are injected, it makes the hair grow and reduces the hair falling issues. These platelets are also responsible to thicken your hair and thus making them strong.
Let's Get Technical
The following growth factors are found within PRP:
Transforming Growth factor Beta Stimulating Protein (TGFSB): regulates the balance between anagen and telogen phases of a hair cycle, as well as producing new hairs during this time period. It also promotes melanocyte proliferation for darker colored hair.
Insulin-like Growth Factor (IGF): stimulates the production of collagen and keratin for healthier, stronger hair strands. IGF also promotes tissue growth throughout the body, which can speed up wound healing after a surgery or injury has occurred.
Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF): this growth factor promotes blood vessel formation, which can enhance the delivery of nutrients to cells for healthier skin and hair.
Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF): activates keratinocyte stem cells to produce new skin and hair.
Interleukin-1: stimulates the body to produce new cells, which could potentially lead to hair regeneration.
The combination of these growth factors stimulates the scalp, which is where PRP injections work their magic. The stimulation initiated by these proteins helps to promote healthy hair follicle regeneration, decreases hair failing issues, and thickens the hair.
