Frequently Asked Questions
Are Exosomes different from PRP?
Yes, Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses a concentration of a patient’s own platelets to accelerate the healing of skin and add growth factors to enhance the treatment outcome. PRP is obtained through a blood draw of the patient. Also, as we age our PRP is not as effective as it was when we were younger. Exosomes can be an excellent alternative in that case. Exosomes have been found to carry a much higher percentage of growth factors versus PRP.
Can Exosomes Help Rejuvenate Skin?
Exosomes contain growth factors and other signaling molecules that can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. They also help reduce inflammation and promote tissue repair, leading to smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
What Skin Concerns Can Be Helped With The Addition Of Exosomes To A Treatment?
The addition of exosomes to certain treatments can help address multiple skin concerns including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, pigmentation issues and improve uneven skin tone and texture. They also help reduce inflammation and decrease downtime.
Are There Any Side Effects Associated With Using Exosomes During A Treatment?
There are no known side effects associated with exosomes. Since the exosomes are applied to the skin surface, there is typically no redness or bruising associated with them. In fact, exosomes have been found to assist in speeding up recovery and reducing inflammation.
