What are Exosomes?
Over time, our skin will begin to show physical signs of aging such as lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and more. Exosome treatments, a type of regenerative therapy, are a cutting-edge anti-aging solution offered at VitaLab.
But what exactly are exosomes? Exosomes are extracellular vesicles or small fluid-filled sacs that begin in many different types of cells in the body, including stem cells. Exosomes carry genetic information and proteins to cells throughout your body, as well as create paths for communication between cells. These messenger vesicles have the ability to release growth factors and other beneficial processes.
Exosomes offer a variety of benefits, including the ability to regenerate tissue, control inflammation, repair injuries, and support regenerative therapies to treat certain diseases.
When used as an anti-aging treatment such as an exosome facial, exosomes can:
- Restore facial contours and shape for a more youthful look.
- Enhance skin quality, texture, and tone.
- Minimize hyperpigmentation, scarring, and sunspots.
- Reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
- Improve skin tightness.
Who is a Candidate for Exosome Facials?
Men and women who are looking to improve the overall look and feel of their skin, as well as combat signs of aging can often benefit from an exosome treatment. However, be sure to let your clinician know if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have a bleeding disorder, as this might not be the best treatment option for you. Please contact our office today to schedule a consultation appointment to determine your candidacy.
Exosome facials work similarly to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatments, in that they harness the power of stem cells to rejuvenate tissue and combat aging, injury, or disease. The difference is that exosomes are derived from mesenchymal stem cells while PRP comes from your own blood cells. During treatment, exosomes will be injected into the damaged tissue to kickstart cellular regeneration. This can include using microneedling along with exosome therapy to further ensure full absorption. Furthermore, dermal fillers can also be used during exosome facials to lift and plump lax skin.
At VitaLab, we pride ourselves on the ability to individualize our treatments, as we understand that no two people have the same aesthetic goals. Our expert aesthetic doctors and nurses will work with you to determine the most effective exosome facial treatment option for you to help you reach your skincare goals.
There is no downtime following an exosome facial, making it a great option for those with busy lifestyles or those who do not wish to experience extensive recovery time. Dr. Oberg’s recovery protocol will provide you with specific instructions regarding how to care for your skin following your exosome facial.
