What Is Exosome Therapy?
Exosome therapy, recently implemented for hair repair and regeneration, is considered one of the most promising medical developments lately. Exosomes from hair cells typically contain bioactive molecules such as growth factors, cytokines, and RNA molecules that support hair health and repair. Therefore, in cases of hair damage or signs of aging, Exosome therapy can be effectively used in conjunction with stem cell therapy to enhance healing in the body.
What Are Exosomes?
Exosomes are located in a region within the cell called the endosome, where materials are transported and processed, and they facilitate communication between cells. These microscopic packages, which contain various proteins, lipids, and RNA molecules, are excreted from the cell and then absorbed by other cells.
Thus, an effective exchange of information and molecules occurs between cells, ensuring the proper functioning of tissues. Exosomes can be thought of as couriers that transport information and substances from one cell to another.
How Is Exosome Therapy Applied?
Exosome therapy generally involves exosomes obtained from specially cultured cells (such as stem cells). These exosomes can then be injected into damaged areas of the hair or applied as a topical product. Exosomes carry beneficial molecules to target cells, aiding the hair in repairing and renewing itself.
Exosome therapy can reverse or slow down hair aging. As we age, the cells in our hair produce fewer exosomes, leading to a loss of hair elasticity and youthful appearance. Exosome therapy aims to slow down and even reverse this process by carrying rejuvenating and repairing molecules to hair cells.
In addition, exosome therapy can accelerate wound healing. Exosomes can carry molecules that accelerate wound healing and promote new cell growth. This can be used to treat particularly difficult-to-heal wounds or scalp ulcers
