WHAT IS EXOSOMES THERAPY?
Our team at Aesthetic Scalp makes it a point to stay on top of the latest medical trends and innovations, and we regularly incorporate new and proven techniques into treatment plans at our esteemed center for hair restoration. One of these new and traction-gaining approaches is exosomes therapy, an alternative to PRP that doesn't require blood drawn from the patient. Exosomes are vesicles that communicate information back and forth between other cells and instruct cells on how to act. The use of exosomes is becoming incredibly popular in regenerative medicine because they can help influence cell behavior according to the messages being sent. Exosomes seem to be the most potent and effective when harvested from viable cells. With the effects of this new treatment being carefully studied in the context of hair growth and restoration, our board-certified team, Drs. Anil Shah and Sameea Chughtai, are excited to offer this option to patients in Chicago.
Exosomes Therapy Reviews
"If you want to pay extra and be a number.... for an Artas hair restoration process - check out all the expensive billboards in and around the city (you know their patients are paying for that star power, right?). If you are looking for the premier Artas boutique in Chicago - managed by TWO doctors - look no further. My experience and results were amazing!! If I wanted a recommendation on peanuts or beer I’d trust a famous Chicago celeb. Since I wanted the best, hands down, plastic surgeon to handle my hairline (using better technology and beyond amazing assistants/staff) I trusted Dr. Shah’s office and - am thrilled. Thanks Dr. Shah. You and your office is - simply put - a gem!!"- J. / Google / Jun 06, 2019
"A friend recommended Dr. Shah for a hair transplant. Probably one of the best decisions I ever made. A year ago, I was pretty bummed about how I looked with my hair. I'm in my late 30s but my hair loss made me look like I was 50. And I hated the way I looked with my head shaved. I flew in from California to see Dr. Shah and his team and right off the bat I felt like I can trust this team with my hair. Procedure was pretty painless. I was napping most of the time. And that robot? Color me impressed. I've heard that doctors estimate a high number of grafts needed and the low number of usable grafts actually transplanted. From what I understand, hair follicles can be cut while extracting and that makes them unusable. With Dr. Shah, they estimated 800 grafts needed for the transplant and actually had 798 used. Only two follicles weren't usable! That's just amazing! Anyway, a year later and a follow-up, I actually look and feel my age. This was such a boost to my confidence. Thank you Dr. Shah and his hair team!"- H.B. / Google / Mar 06, 2020
"ARTAS Hair Transplant - Dr. Shah is Amazing - LOVE my new hairline! - I visited Dr. Shah at Aesthetic Scalp in his immaculate offices in Water Tower Place and he performed a hair restoration procedure on me using the Artas Robot. I couldn't be more pleased with him, his staff, the procedure and the way, generally, I was treated from consultation to completion. For those of you with short attention spans, please just allow me to sum up my review for you, here: He..."- C. / RealSelf / Feb 19, 2018
AM I A CANDIDATE?
If you're experiencing hair loss, thinning, or balding, or if you have had a hair restoration treatment in the past and are now noticing miniaturization in the previously treated hair, then you could be a candidate for exosomes therapy. Exosomes therapy is similar to PRP treatments in that it encourages follicle growth and strengthening, but exosomes therapy may be more beneficial for patients who prefer not to have their blood drawn or who have had PRP therapy in the past. To determine whether you're a candidate for this treatment, schedule a private consultation with one of our doctors who will assess your scalp, ask about your medical past and family history, and figure out the underlying cause of your hair loss.
HOW IS IT DONE?
Exosomes therapy is a minimally invasive treatment that we perform at our Chicago office. The length of the procedure will depend on the size of the affected area, but it shouldn't take longer than a couple of hours. During your session, we'll carefully inject exosomes into your scalp via a fine needle. We may apply a local anesthetic to the treatment area to minimize any pain and ensure your comfort throughout the procedure. Once complete, you may notice some redness around the treatment areas, but this should go away after a couple of days. Patients may return to their typical schedules following their exosomes therapy.
RESULTS AFTER EXOSOMES THERAPY
Since this technique is fairly new in hair restoration and cosmetic settings, final outcomes after exosomes therapy are still being monitored. So far, the treatment is used to facilitate hair growth and attempt to reverse the miniaturization of dormant hair in patients with hair loss or in those who have had hair restoration procedures in the past. To check your progress post-treatment, we may ask you to come in for a follow-up appointment so Dr. Shah or Chughtai can assess your scalp and determine whether the exosomes have had any effect.
