Hair Restoration

prp hair restoration los gatos

Our hair is more than just a style statement — it’s an expression of our health, vitality and identity. So when it starts thinning or balding, it can feel like every glance in the mirror chips away at our confidence and sense of self.

Old solutions for hair loss involved expensive and invasive surgery. Even those most carefully done hair transplant could end in “doll’s hair” appearance that was obvious and unnatural. Thankfully, hair restoration methods have evolved in leaps and bounds since then.

At the Young Naturopathic Center for Wellness in Los Gatos, we offer three options for natural hair restoration that come from the scientific forefront of naturopathic medicine and regenerative medicine. Whether you’re dealing with the initial stages of hair loss or are looking for a full follicular revival, we’ve got you (and your scalp) covered.

Exosomes for Hair Restoration

Exosome therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that’s redefining how we approach hair restoration. Unlike surgical transplants that only treat the symptoms of hair loss, exosome therapy targets the root cause by enhancing cellular function at a fundamental level. Exosomes allow us to tap into a biological mechanism already at work in your body and supercharge it, like PRP but even more powerful.

Exosome treatments work by delivering vital components right to the cells of your scalp. Exosomes “talk” to those cells, giving precise instructions for strengthening hair follicles, stimulating new growth, and enhancing the thickness and quality of each strand. It’s a beautiful blend of science and nature.

What Are Exosomes?

Exosomes are micro-vesicles, essentially minuscule packets of information, that facilitate communication between cells. Imagine them as tiny but incredibly potent messengers that carry growth factors and other important elements to places that need them. In the context of hair restoration, exosomes can tell your hair follicles how to function more effectively, enhancing hair growth and hair health in the process.

At YNC, we use naturally-derived exosomes that are purified using proprietary processing methods. We use the utmost care when choosing a supplier to ensure our clients receive products that have been rigorously tested for safety and efficacy.

What Are the Benefits of Exosomes for Hair Rejuvenation?

Why are exosomes such a promising development in hair restoration and regenerative medicine? These are just a few of the reasons:

  • All-natural therapy that works in harmony with bodily processes
  • Targeted treatment that goes right where it’s needed
  • Minimal side effects and low risk of adverse events
  • Stimulates hair follicle regeneration
  • Anti-inflammatory properties that create a healthier scalp environment
  • Little to no downtime
  • Longer-lasting than topical treatments
  • Less invasive than surgical approaches

What Is the Treatment Process?

The treatment kicks off with a thorough consultation, during which we’ll evaluate the extent of your hair loss and discuss your specific goals. Following this, we will develop a tailored treatment plan, outlining the number of injections and sessions you will likely need for optimal results.

Exosomes are administered directly into the scalp via injection. This ensures accurate delivery and precise targeting of the areas needing rejuvenation. The procedure is quick and relatively comfortable, with no downtime from work or social activities required afterward.

What Is the Recovery Like Following Exosome Injections for Hair Restoration?

Exosome therapy is minimally invasive, which means you do not need a long recovery period that keeps you away from your regular activities. You may experience some slight redness, swelling or tenderness in the treated areas, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days.

We will provide you with aftercare instructions. These may include temporarily avoiding intense exercise and refraining from using certain hair products. You may shower and return to your usual hair care routine within a day or two post-procedure.

What Results Can Exosomes Achieve?

Results can vary from person to person, but the evidence showing the effectiveness of exosome therapy is highly encouraging. Many clients report noticeable improvements in hair thickness and coverage in two to three months. New hair growth can continue over the course of a year, with the most noticeable results usually observed around six months after treatment has been administered.

To maintain healthy hair growth, you may benefit from maintenance treatments performed every 12 to 18 months.

PRP for Hair Restoration

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a natural therapy that uses your own blood to treat hair loss. Leveraging your body’s innate ability to heal and regenerate, PRP therapy involves isolating and concentrating platelets from your blood and reintroducing them into your scalp. The platelets contain growth factors that can help stimulate the activity of your hair follicles and promote new hair growth.

Our patients find PRP therapy to be a great option to address hair loss because it is an all-natural autologous medical procedure performed for scalp, skin and hair stimulation. This treatment can not only treat pattern baldness but improve thinning, aged hair and restore luster and shine. We have been performing PRP therapy at our Los Gatos clinic as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients seeking hair restoration with great results.

What Is PRP?

PRP is a concentrated form of plasma extracted from your own blood. It’s chock-full of platelets, which are tiny cells that play a crucial role in healing and tissue regeneration. These platelets release a cocktail of growth factors and other bioactive molecules that stimulate dormant hair follicles and promote new hair growth.

Treatments using PRP embody the naturopathic philosophy of tapping into the body’s innate abilities to restore balance and improve well-being. It’s a minimally invasive treatment, meaning it doesn’t involve any significant surgical interventions or downtime. PRP is considered very safe since it uses your own natural growth factors and no synthetic materials of any kind.

What Are the Benefits of PRP Hair Rejuvenation?

PRP is an exciting, nonsurgical and all-natural option for our patients seeking hair growth solutions. There are many advantages to choosing PRP hair treatment over older, invasive approaches to hair restoration, including:

  • Natural hair loss therapy
  • Nonsurgical treatment
  • Increase hair growth
  • Increase hair thickness
  • Speed up growth phase of hair cycle
  • No adverse allergic reaction as treatment harness your own blood
  • No downtime
  • Affordable and cost-effective when compared to surgery
  • Natural-looking end results

What Is the Treatment Process?

To make PRP, a small sample of your blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge. This machine spins the sample at high speeds to separate its components. The platelet-rich plasma is then extracted and becomes your own personalized elixir for hair growth.

In the next phase of the treatment, the highly-concentrated PRP is injected into areas of your scalp needing restoration. The process is simple and involves minimal discomfort. Our patients usually do not need any numbing to tolerate the injections.

What Is the Recovery Like Following PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP allows you to return to your daily activities with minimal disruption. You might experience some slight redness or bruising at the injection sites, but these symptoms generally fade within a few days.

Aftercare is simple and straightforward. We recommend avoiding vigorous physical activity and excessive sun exposure for a day or two, just to give your scalp a bit of a breather. Regular hair washing can usually resume the next day, and salon treatments can resume a few days after the injections.

What Results Can PRP Hair Restoration Achieve?

The beauty of PRP lies not just in its efficacy but also in its ability to deliver results that are both natural-looking and long-lasting. On average, most clients begin to see noticeable improvement in hair thickness and growth after three to four sessions, spaced about four to six weeks apart.

The optimal number of treatment sessions depends on the individual’s hair loss conditions and goals. Maintenance treatments once or twice a year after your initial treatments can help you sustain your gains.

Am I a candidate for nonsurgical hair restoration?

Almost anyone can benefit from these treatments. While some begin taking measures when their hair loss becomes noticeable, others take a proactive approach to safeguarding their hair health. We can discuss your concerns and design a treatment plan that meets you where you are.

Will these hair restoration treatments work for my hair type?

There are no restrictions related to hair type or ethnicity. These natural hair restoration treatments are designed to promote hair growth and hair wellness for all types of hair, regardless of natural variations in the characteristics of hair strands. The hair growth cycle and underlying issues that impact hair follicles can affect all people equally.

What is the difference between exosomes and PRP?

Exosomes are tiny vesicles — think of them as the FedEx of cellular communication — that deliver growth signals directly to your hair follicles. PRP is a concentrate of your own blood that’s rich in growth factors, acting like a fertilizer for your scalp. Both are natural, biologically-derived treatments, with a few notable differences:


  • Lab-derived growth factors
  • No blood draw
  • Shorter procedure time
  • Fewer treatment sessions may be required


  • Patient-derived growth factors
  • Blood draw
  • Longer procedure time
  • More treatment sessions may be required

Can I combine these treatments with other hair restoration modalities?

Yes, in many cases you can combine our natural hair restoration treatments with other products and supplements designed to promote hair growth. Let us know what else you are doing to support your hair and we will help you figure out a comprehensive treatment plan that maximizes your results.

How does the hair growth cycle work?

The hair growth cycle is a four-phase process:

  1. Anagen Phase: The “growing up” stage where your hair follicles are living their best life, growing about half an inch per month. This phase can last for two to six years.
  2. Catagen Phase: The transitional phase where your hair follicles renew themselves. This phase lasts around two weeks.
  3. Telogen Phase: The rest stage where your hair stops growing. This phase lasts from one to four months.
  4. Exogen Phase: The shedding phase — your hair says its goodbyes and falls out, making way for a new strand to begin the anagen phase. It’s all part of the circle of (hair) life.

Understanding these phases is key to getting why certain hair loss treatments are effective. Many work by extending the anagen phase to promote more growth and shorten the resting and shedding phases to reduce hair loss.
