What Our Patients Want to Know About Exosome Facials
#1. What are exosomes?
Exosomes are tiny, naturally occurring particles that are released by cells in the body. They act as messengers, carrying information between cells and facilitating communication and interaction between them.
#2. How do exosome facials rejuvenate skin ?
Exosomes contain growth factors, cytokines, and other signaling molecules that can stimulate the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. They can also help to reduce inflammation and promote tissue repair, leading to smoother, more youthful-looking skin.
#4. What skin conditions can be improved with an exosome facial?
Exosome facials can be used to improve a variety of skin conditions, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, acne scarring, and uneven skin tone and texture.
#5. Is an exosome facial safe?
Yes, exosome facials are extremely safe because they are substances naturally found in the human body. At AMAE Plastic Surgery and Med Spa in Birmingham, MI we use clinical grade EXOM brand exosomes that are derived from mesenchymal stem cells that have been carefully screened and tested for safety.
#6. Are there any side effects of an exosome facial?
Exosome facials have no known side effects. Because the exosomes are applied topically, there is no redness, swelling, or bruising due to the exosomes. In fact, when combined with radiofrequency or laser treatments, exosomes have been shown to increase healing and recovery by 50%!
#7. How long do the results of an exosome facial last?
The results of an exosome facial will last for several months -usually a year or longer – depending on the individual’s skin type, age, and lifestyle factors. Maintenance treatments may be recommended to help maintain the results over time. Touchup treatments can extend the anti-aging benefits of exosomes even longer.
#8. Are exosome facials safe for darker skin tones and colors?
Yes, exosome facials are safe for all skin types and colors, including darker skin tones. Since exosomes are derived from cells present in the human body, there is no risk of an allergic or adverse skin reaction.
#10. How long does it take to see results from an exosome treatment?
The time it takes to see results from exosome treatments varies depending on the individual and the condition being treated. Most patients notice an improvement in skin texture and tone within a few days, while optimal results will continue to develop over the next several weeks, as the body continues to produce new collagen and elastin to repair damaged cells.
#11. Can topical exosome treatments be combined with other Botox and fillers?
Yes, topical exosome treatments can be combined with Botox and fillers. Our skilled aestheticians and nurses will discuss your appearance goals to determine the best treatment plan based on your individual needs.
#12. How is an exosome facial therapy used in tandem with laser & radiofrequency treatments?
Exosome facial therapy can be used in tandem with laser and radiofrequency treatments to enhance the benefits of both treatments. The exosomes work to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin, which helps to improve skin texture and tone. When used in combination with laser and radiofrequency treatments, the exosomes can help to further improve the results of these procedures.
#13. Are exosomes and stem cells the same thing?
Exosomes and stem cells are not the same thing. While both play a role in cellular communication and regeneration, stem cells are undifferentiated cells that have the potential to develop into different types of cells, while exosomes are tiny vesicles (delivery vehicles) derived from stem cells that contain molecules that can help heal and repair damaged cells.
#14. What is the difference between a PRP facial and an exosome facial?
The main difference between a PRP facial and an exosome facial is the source of the regenerative material. PRP facial uses platelet-rich plasma derived from the patient’s own blood to promote collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. Exosome facials, on the other hand, use exosomes derived from mesenchymal stem cells to stimulate cellular regeneration and improve skin texture and tone.
PRP facials typically involved either microneedling or injections to deliver the PHP into the skin’s lower layer (dermis). However, EXOM exosome therapy is applied topically – usually in conjunction with other treatments.
#15. How many exosome treatments are required for optimal results?
The number of exosome treatments required for optimal results also varies depending on the individual’s skin and the type and severity of the skin condition(s) being treated. Patients typically see visible results with just one treatment. Patients with more severe skin damage may wish to schedule a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart is recommended for best results.
