With each passing year, the world aesthetic enhancement has seen almost constant advancement, with more and more individuals, both men and women, experiencing improvements in a number of different treatments. In years past, aesthetic enhancement and plastic surgery procedures were seen as being almost exclusively for the rich and well off, as many “regular” segments of society were often priced out and couldn’t afford to enhance their appearance, whether it be from non-invasive skincare, body contouring, and hair restoration, to the most well-known surgical enhancement procedures such as the ever-popular Brazilian Butt Lift, liposuction, breast augmentation, facelifts, and much more. however, with the advancements in technology, and the increased knowledge on these topics, cosmetic medicine doctors were able to drastically lower prices, and allow more and more, everyday men and women to be able t undergo these procedures without the substantial barriers to entry seen in past decades. One of the most interesting areas in which this advancement has helped quite a bit has been the area of hair restoration.
Hair loss is one of the most common issues amongst both men and women around today. While it is traditionally seen as a concern exclusive to men, more and more women find themselves in need of hair restoration and are more so willing to “come out” about their hair loss issues. according to Dr. Richard Swift, the best plastic surgeon NYC has offer, when it comes to the treatment of lost or thinning hair, PRP or platelet rich plasma therapy has provided men and women with fairly good results and is seen as one of the best non-invasive treatment methods around today. And as the PRP therapy has grown in popularity, there are many new and unique variations of the treatment that have allowed patients to experience much-improved results – one of the most interesting of such variations has been exosomes PRP hair restoration. In this article we will explore exosomes PRP hair restoration in depth, and help educate patients on how it can be the answer to all their hair loss issues moving forward.
What are Exosomes?
In essence, exosomes are considered to be a form of stem cells – acting as building blocks for stem cells. They generate within their cells of origin if the multivesicular body fuses with the cell membrane, thereby releasing intraluminal vesicles as exosomes. These small cellular products contain both RNA and, even of greater import, mRNA; the initiator of protein manufacturing.These protein building blocks’ roles are dependent on their cell of origin. Many act as signalers for bodily functions, such as coagulation, as well as cellular growth to facilitate said bodily functions. Such signaling and growth factors, studies currently show, are a result of the exosome’s origin. According to Dr. Swift, the best plastic surgeon NYC has to offer, exosomes PRP treatments help to develop a number of different stem cell growth factors. These growth factors are known as signalers as well, as they act to signal the body to perform certain functions, in this case, being the growth of certain compounds that can help with hair restoration. Some of these growth factors or stem cell signalers include:
· MIP-1: A recruiter of mononuclear cells.
· VEGF: A stimulator to encourage blood vessel formation.
· SCF: An encourager of stem cell and melanocyte growth.
· FGF: A growth factor that signals cells to encourage biological development.
· TGFß3: A gene variant that, among other things, converts inflammatory T Cells into anti-inflammatory T-Cells.
The interesting thing about these exosomes is that they serve a number of different purposed in both men and women. for instance, some of them work to improve sexual function, while others work to strengthen joint and connective tissues. And when it comes to exosomes PRP hair restoration, the exosomes coming from hair follicle stem cells, are supposed to help facilitate hair growth and can help prevent hair loss.
Nutrition Versus Signaling
Nutrition for follicular cells will always be essential. According to Dr. Swift, the best plastic surgeon NYC has in practice, and others who are familiar with exosomes PRP hair restoration, nearly all outpatient treatments are designed to provide nutrition to the cells. PRP, cytokine rich plasma (CRP), and stem cell treatments are all designed to invigorate follicles with nutrient concentrates.Each of the above treatments also contains exosomes, but not nearly in the same concentration as a processed exosome treatment. This is why exosomes are so vital. WNT pathways are particularly important for stimulating hair growth. Outside of methyl vanillate, though, no treatments directly encourage this pathway. Stem cells are the closest there is to this function but they serve more as a nutrient that also signals cells. Exosomes, on the other hand, are cellular signalers that also provide these cells with the nutrition they need.
