Exosome

Stem Cell Techniques in aesthetic procedures have gained prominence in recent years. Exosomes derived from umbilical cord tissue, also known as newborn cord exosomes, are considered one of the most significant discoveries of the last 30 years. Exosomes, crucial for tissue repair, are protein vesicles obtained through special processes involving the culture of mesenchymal stem cells. With technological advancements, exosomes have become a preferred next-generation treatment method for skin health and beauty.

What are Exosomes?

Exosomes are protein vesicles, rich in numerous growth factors and amino acids, obtained by purifying mesenchymal stem cells’ culture under specific conditions. Exosomes derived from newborn umbilical cord tissue are protein vesicles purified through specific processes in a culture medium. Exosomes are incredibly small, ranging from 30-200 nm in diameter. These vesicles, one-thousandth the size of cells, strengthen the functions of the affected cells and contribute to their repair.

What is Exosome Therapy and When is it Administered?

Exosome therapy is not only used for aesthetic purposes but also for treating certain medical conditions. Successful results have been achieved in areas such as pigmentation treatment, skin rejuvenation, acne scar treatment, atopic eczema, hair loss, wound healing, or burn treatment.

How is Exosome Therapy Conducted?

Exosomes are stored as a homogenous suspension in a sterile cold chain. About 30 minutes before the procedure, the patient’s skin is cleansed, and a local anesthetic cream is applied. In exosome therapy, exosomes derived from stem cells are injected dermally into the specified area using microneedles. After the injection of exosome skin serum, the repair of damaged cells begins. Patients can comfortably resume their daily activities after the procedure.

How Long Does Exosome Therapy Take?

Exosome cell treatment for hair or skin rejuvenation purposes typically lasts around 30 minutes. 

How Many Sessions of Exosome Stem Cell Therapy Are Applied?

Exosome therapy for the designated area is typically performed in a single session. Desired results are achieved over time after this single procedure. The repair process of damaged cells begins rapidly after the injection of exosomes. The reparative power of exosomes is significantly high. The treatment plan is personalized based on the specific condition or ailment. For instance, in the case of hair loss, the process may involve 3-8 sessions. Procedures are usually performed at intervals of 7-14 days. It can also be administered after a hair transplant to support the newly transplanted hair.

What Are the Benefits of Exosome Therapy?

Unlike other stem cell methods, exosome therapy does not involve obtaining bone marrow or abdominal fat from the patient. Therefore, it is recognized as a much more practical method compared to stem cell therapy.
