Hair Restoration in Scottsdale

More than 80% of men will experience some form of hair thinning, hair loss, or baldness, and nearly 50% of men over the age of 50. Millions suffer specifically from male pattern hair loss, or androgenic alopecia (AGA), a genetic trait in which hormones interact with hair follicles to produce symptoms like thinning hair, receding hairlines, bald spots, and excessive hair loss. Hair thinning and loss can also be caused by hormonal imbalances, stress, poor diet, and underlying medical conditions.

There is hope for healthy hair, however, even if you are already experiencing these symptoms. Regardless of genetics, the current health of your hair, or lack of success with previous treatments, hair loss and balding doesn’t have to be in your future. With revolutionary hair restoration treatments like exosome therapy from The Hormone Zone, you can finally regain the youthful confidence that comes with full, healthy hair.

How DHT and 5-AR Affect Healthy Hair Growth

Male pattern baldness and accelerated hair loss stem primarily from the influence of dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT, an androgen hormone, regulates the development and upkeep of male characteristics and shares many physiological and sexual functions with testosterone. It is formed when testosterone undergoes conversion by the 5-alpha-reductase (5-AR) enzyme present in the testes, prostate, skin, and liver, essentially acting as a more potent version of testosterone. Approximately 10% of testosterone naturally transforms into DHT.

Due to its heightened potency, DHT binds to receptors for longer durations, intensifying the impact of testosterone. In fact, DHT exhibits up to five times greater affinity for hair follicle receptors compared to testosterone. Consequently, hair follicles shrink, and the growth phase in the hair growth cycle becomes shorter. This impairs proper hair growth, leading to thinning, weakened hair, or even baldness.

Effectively managing hair loss and baldness involves regulating DHT levels by controlling 5-AR activity. When 5-AR activity is suppressed, the body’s DHT levels decrease. Conversely, heightened 5-AR levels result in increased conversion of testosterone to DHT, leading to elevated levels of circulating DHT and magnifying its impact.

While genetic factors contribute to the sensitivity of hair follicles to DHT molecules, it’s important to note that elevated DHT levels don’t always directly cause hair loss. However, the effects of DHT binding to hair follicle receptors are more pronounced and significant in individuals who possess the genetic trait associated with baldness. Hair loss attributed to DHT binding typically manifests in the frontal and crown areas of the head, as DHT does not affect hair growth on the back and sides.

Exosome Therapy for Even More Exceptional Hair Restoration Results

At The Hormone Zone, we utilize exosome therapy, a method that uses naturally derived biomolecules like proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids to regenerate and regrow hair in the early stages of hair loss.

Exosomes are unique extracellular vesicles that are involved in cell communication and boast powerful growth factors and enzymes that can be used to elicit very specific responses from the body’s immune system. They also contain RNA and mRNA, cellular building blocks that interfere with the androgen hormone DHT and enable the production and synthesis of proteins. 

The exosome therapy offered at The Hormone Zone uses the best and most advanced products available, including the world’s first reproducible pure exosome manufactured to meet strict FDA drug and vaccine production guidelines. These exosomes are isolated and cell-free human tissue products that are resuspended in 0.9% normal saline. Our exosomes are procured and processed here in the United States from master banks with single donor, pre-covid sources, and our formula boasts RNA content, purity, and potency simply unmatched by our competitors.

Every lot is tested for sterility and endotoxin and both quantified and qualified via:

  • Protein concentration
  • dSTORM visualization
  • NanoSight sizing
  • mRNA sequencing
  • Mass Spectrometric protein sequencing
  • Flow cytometric surface marker testing
  • Visual purity assay

Exosome therapy works by controlling the impact of androgen receptor genes at the cellular level, stimulating and softening hair follicles stuck in the telogen (resting) phase of the hair growth cycle, helping them transition into the anagen (growth) phase. This encourages a longer hair growth cycle with thicker, healthier hair and prevents hair miniaturization and brittleness caused by aging.

Exosome therapy can help promote functions necessary for healthy hair growth, including:

  • Improved blood supply to damaged tissue
  • Collagen regeneration
  • Dormant gene activation
  • Reversed tissue degeneration
  • New tissue growth
  • Extended hair growth cycle

Many patients may begin experiencing natural hair growth as soon as two to three months after the initial treatment, with new hair growth continuing over the course of a year. Best results are achieved with a series of three exosome treatment sessions over three months, each consisting of one trillion exosomes, used in conjunction with three sessions of our injection therapy.

Hair Restoration FAQs

How do exosomes prolong the hair growth cycle?

Exosomes prolong the hair growth cycle by allowing hair follicles that are stuck in the telogen, or resting, phase to convert to the anagen, or growth, phase. This is critical because, as with every other part of our body, hair follicles age. Unlike other cells, though, follicular cells age with each cycle of growth, shrinking and growing more brittle as they transition through phases. Hair strands continue shrinking after each telogen phase until growth stops completely, which typically takes decades but, for many men, can happen much sooner.

Many hair care products and treatments can help prolong hair growth to a certain degree, but none of them produce the level of results of exosome therapy. When exosomes are injected, the hair growth cycle remains intact longer and produces thicker, healthier hair strands

How many exosomes are injected during each treatment?

At The Hormone Zone, we are proud to offer our patients the highest quality exosome treatment available to commercial medicine, using one trillion exosomes per session to deliver superior results for less cost. Not only do our competitors use only a fraction of this amount of exosomes, they offer a subpar product, further reducing their efficacy. 

How long do exosomes last in your body?

Exosomes remain present in the body 6-8 months after the final treatment, after which they are naturally absorbed.
