Exosome Treatment For Acne
Exosomes help RNA and proteins like keratin, fibroblasts, and immune cells move from one cell to another.

So what is an exosome?

Think of “exosomes” as little messages your skin cells send each other. After a stem cell has been divided four times, they make a package of information or instructions. Exosomes are in charge of communicating between cells. They do this by joining with other cells and sending their information to them. This gives old cells the information they need to repair, renew, and improve. As we age, our skin loses the ability to make collagen and fix damaged cells.

Exosomes help RNA and proteins like keratin, fibroblasts, and immune cells move from one cell to another. Exosomes also move cytokines, growth factors, and other substances from one cell to another. By putting exosomes directly on the tissue, we can skip the long process of cell division and go straight to the area’s replenishment and regeneration. So, new skin cells are made that look younger, more vibrant, and healthier.

What Is Regenerative Medicine?

What Is Regenerative Medicine?

Exosome therapy is a regenerative medicine that helps the body heal from the inside out. It turns on the body’s regenerative and healing processes to get to the root cause of health problems and injuries without adding chemicals or other harmful ingredients.

This treatment works so well because it gets to the root of the disease and the pain instead of covering up the pain. Exosome therapy is one way that you can use regenerative medicine. Other types of regenerative medicine that help the body heal are PRP therapy, prolotherapy, stem cell treatments, and cartilage regeneration. Even though these treatments are not the same as exosome therapy, they use the body to heal and treat the signs of aging.

What is the difference between Exosomes and Stem Cells?

What is the difference between Exosomes and Stem Cells?

Stem cells are living cells that can repair themselves and change into other types of cells. They have a lot of molecules in them that are known to reduce inflammation, heal damaged tissue, and fight infections. All cells, even stem cells, make substances called exosomes.

Different types of cells or molecules are needed during the various stages of healing. Stem cells act like orchestra conductors, telling other cells where to go and what to do. They are in charge of creating the complicated symphony of cell activity that leads to tissue healing. Stem cells make different exosomes, which are then released at other times based on what the body needs.

How Exosome Acne Treatment Works

How Exosome Acne Treatment Works

There are a few steps to getting this treatment at our clinic. The way we treat each patient is the same, but we make sure to give them the care that is compassionate and fits their needs. Here’s what you can specifically expect:

Initial Consultation

First, you must attend a consultation appointment. During a consultation, you can find out if you are eligible for treatment and discuss your worries and needs. The specialist will carefully examine your concerns, talk about your overall acne treatment goals, and look at your treatment goals in detail.

In addition to gathering information about you, the service provider needs to know your general medical history, what acne medications and supplements you are currently taking, and what injuries you’ve had. After your consultation, you may need to do some tests or labs. Lab tests and exams can tell you a lot about how well your treatment is going.

Pre-Treatment

Before your therapy, you will be given instructions to help you prepare. Some instructions before treatment might be:

  • For a few days, eat little.
  • Don’t drink or smoke for 24 hours.
  • Before your treatment, drink a lot of water.

Depending on your needs and treatment plan, you may need to do more, but you shouldn’t have to do too much. This is a simple and safe way to treat it. Since this is outpatient therapy, you don’t need to make transportation plans for the day of your appointment.

Day of Treatment

There are two ways that you could get the treatment you need. In IV therapy, the vesicle solution is put into the bloodstream through an IV line in your arm or hand. The solution then travels through your body. Vesicle solutions that are concentrated and placed directly on the affected areas are used to give injection treatments. The whole thing should take between 30 and 60 minutes.

Post-Treatment

After your treatment, you will be given instructions to help you get the best results possible. Even though your instructions will be tailored to your specific needs, we may tell you to:

  • At least 48 ounces of water.
  • Stop doing hard work for 24 to 72 hours.
  • Don’t drink or smoke for 24 hours.
  • Don’t eat foods that are high in sugar or salt.

After your treatment, you may be told how to use hot or cold compresses and what over-the-counter products to use.

“Recovery” Period

The recovery time for this therapy is very short. Most people can return to their daily lives within one to three days after getting treatment. Patients with joint pain should walk and do light stretches for their joints while healing.

Final Results

Most of the time, this treatment for acne scars works between 1 and 2 weeks after treatment. The results will be less inflammation in the joints and more self-confidence. Most people feel less pain in their joints and other parts of their bodies after treatment. These therapies also help fight age and make the skin look younger. Patients say that these therapies improve both their general health and the tone and texture of their skin.

How much does exosome therapy cost?

When considering cost, it’s essential to remember that everyone has different needs when working with a doctor to make a treatment plan. Because it’s unlikely that your body will reject the exosomes, doctors will need to talk to you in-depth before developing a personalized treatment plan.

Exosome therapy usually costs between $3,500 and $6,500, the most common price being around $4,900. Treatments can be given as an IV infusion to help the whole body or as injections in specific areas to treat specific orthopedic conditions.

Exosome Therapy Clinical Studies

Exosome Therapy Clinical Studies

Exosomes are being tested in clinical trials to see how they affect aging skin, acne scars, wound healing, burn therapy, surgical incision sites, surgical beds, scar therapy, and stretch marks, among other things.

At this point, there isn’t a complete human study showing that giving someone an IV infusion of exosomes or a local injection will help them heal or treat their disease. So, if the cost of treatment is directly related to the research that shows it works, the real value of an exosome treatment at this point is not very high.

Why do clinics use this therapy if there isn’t any research on humans that shows it works? Some doctors are putting their hopes in studies done in labs or on animals. But the products used in these studies differ from what clinics can buy. Also, the medical field is full of drugs that worked well on animals but didn’t work on people.

Who is exosome treatment for?

Anyone who wants to improve their skin’s health and look. It can help with wrinkles, acne scars, and even eczema. Please remember that many of these uses may not be on the list of what exosomes can be used for. Off-label treatments are common in medicine, and anecdotal evidence suggests that some benefits of exosomes may fall under this category. This treatment is great as part of a combination protocol with treatments that help collagen grow, like Morpheus8 or Fractora. Even just one session of these kinds of treatments can be more powerful. You can keep using CellDerma GF5, a growth factor applied to the skin.

Exosome therapy can be used in many ways. When put on the skin, this treatment is very good at getting rid of signs of aging, a dull and dehydrated complexion, calming sensitive skin, reducing lesions and scars (like acne scars), making the texture more even, and shrinking enlarged pores.

What Are Common Side Effects Of Exosome Therapy?

Exosome therapy won’t be an FDA-approved treatment until more research is done. Some dishonest providers have given people exosome therapy that wasn’t correctly sourced or given, which has hurt them. That’s why it’s essential to ensure your treatments come from a licensed medical expert trained correctly in exosome therapy.

Potential side effects include:

  • Reaction at the injection site.
  • Ineffective treatment due to insufficient exosome content.
  • Cells can become contaminated when exosomes are taken from them incorrectly. This can cause abnormal cell growth at the target site or in other body parts.
  • Bacterial infection is caused by lousy extraction techniques or not enough sterilization.
