Hair Loss Therapy

Extra-cellular vesicles are one of the most exiting therapy tools in regenerative medicine today. These cells have been used by clinicians in wound care, burns and aesthetic applications including post laser/post micro needling and hair loss therapy.

The plastic surgeons at Illume Cosmetic Surgery have incorporated various injection therapies as part of their armamentarium of tools for treating genetic hair loss.

These cells are derived vesicles that are present in many eukaryotic fluids, including blood, urine, and cultured medium of cell cultures. They are packaged inside intracellular sorting organelles in eukaryotic cells and secreted from the cell, and they are responsible for direct cell to cell communication. These are regarded as the purest form of cellular signaling available because their function is to direct tissue and wound healing by activating cell responses.

They can induce changes in nearby cells that create the appropriate healing environment and aid in tissue repair.

As the technology and discovery of new methods of treating patients has evolved, scientific evidence shows that the optimal way to provide true regenerative therapy is to directly provide the signals as its own therapy and avoid potential issues with delivering and keeping transplanted cells alive.

Although not specifically FDA approved for hair loss, exosomes have shown amazing clinical results for treating hair loss from physicians around the world.

Case Study - Male Pattern Baldness


Patient: 46 year old Male



• 2ml of ExoFlo, diluted to 10ml with saline
• Injections given approximately 0.5cm apart
• Results shown are at 2 weeks post procedure



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

*Individual results may vary


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 Exo-Flo diluted 1:1 injected 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 injected areas.

Noticeable results first observed 3 days out from initial injections 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 injection.*

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 ExoFlo diluted with 8ml sterile saline
• Used 31 gauge needle with 10 1ml insulin syringe
• Injected 0.1cc per injection site approximately 1cm apart
At one month, patient has already shown new hair growth.*

*Individual results may vary
