Aging and sun damage affect our skin on a cellular level, causing it to produce less collagen, elastin and other supportive tissues. The result is thinner, more dull skin with fine lines and wrinkles. Aging (along with genetics and hormone fluctuations) can also cause hair thinning and baldness. The cells that make up our hair follicles become damaged over time, resulting in shrinking hair follicles that eventually stop producing hair.
At Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics, our revitalizing treatments can address hair loss and aging skin to help turn back the clock on your appearance. Exosome therapy is an add-on service we offer that can optimize the results of these non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments.
What Are Exosomes?
Exosomes are naturally occurring nanoparticles within cells, and they are responsible for intercellular communication. They transfer messenger RNA, growth factors, fibroblasts, immune cells and more between cells, which alter the behavior of the recipient cells. When these components are sent to damaged cells, they can help repair the damage. This makes exosomes a vital part of cell regeneration and tissue healing.
How Do Exosomes Aid in Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Restoration?
When applied to your targeted skin or scalp, our exosome products deliver regenerative molecules to repair aged and damaged cells in the area. This advanced rejuvenation therapy promotes cellular turnover and the production of structural proteins like collagen that make your skin firm and resilient. In areas with hair loss, exosome therapy helps restore active hair follicles and healthy cycles of hair growth. In this way, exosomes can aid in achieving a more radiant, smooth complexion and a fuller, thicker head of hair.
What Can Exosomes Do for My Skin and Hair?
Exosome therapy can be combined with skin treatments to improve the following:
- Pigmentation problems, such as dark spots and redness
- Skin laxity
- Fine lines
- Enlarged pores
- Facial hollows
- Dry skin
- Dull skin
Exosome therapy can be combined with PRP hair restoration to achieve the following:
- Thicker, more voluminous hair
- Shinier, sleeker hair
- Softer, more nourished hair
- Reduced hair loss/shedding
- A more moisturized scalp with less skin flaking
Our Exosome Products:
Exosome Regenerative Complex and Exosome Regenerative Complex +
The exosome products we use are Exosome Regenerative Complex (for the skin) and Exosome Regenerative Complex + (for the skin and scalp). They are made by BENEV, an FDA-registered manufacturer. The exosomes in these products are derived from stem cells that are purified and then lyophilized (freeze-dried) to preserve their beneficial qualities. The ExoSCRT™ patented technology isolates and removes impurities from the exosomes with two filtration processes, resulting in high-quality exosomes with excellent transfer efficiency.
The Exosome Regenerative Complex products also contain powerful growth factors, peptides, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and coenzymes. These materials work together with the exosomes to nourish and encourage regenerative activity in your cells.
The benefits of Exosome Regenerative Complex and Exosome Regenerative Complex + include:
- Help repair skin cells and hair follicles after treatments
- Clinically proven rejuvenation
- 180% increase in fibroblasts
- 300% increase in elastin
- Faster recovery for less downtime
- Optimized treatment results
- Over 10 years of research and development
- Inherently anti-inflammatory
What Treatments Can I Add Exosome Therapy To?
Our exosome therapy can be added as a complementary service to the following treatments:
StrataPen microneedling uses extremely fine needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. This stimulates your skin’s natural healing process, which produces new, healthy skin cells and collagen for firmer skin with a more even tone and texture.
Micro Laser Peel
The Micro Laser Peel is a minimally invasive procedure that ablates a thin layer of skin to reveal the more youthful skin below it. This laser-assisted facial treatment can be customized to address your specific concerns, ranging from pigmentation problems to wrinkles and enlarged pores.
Profractional Laser Resurfacing
Profractional laser resurfacing ablates your skin in microscopic channels, leaving channels of healthy tissue between the treated ones for faster healing. This minimally invasive resurfacing procedure uncovers the new, healthy skin beneath the damaged layer and stimulates new collagen growth within your skin.
The HydraFacial is a non-invasive treatment that cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates your skin. A gentle acid peel loosens dead skin cells, and vacuum suctioning removes the dead cells and other impurities. Serums with hyaluronic acid, antioxidants, peptides and amino acids are infused into your skin to produce a softer, brighter complexion.
PRP Hair Restoration
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration uses platelets harvested from your blood to promote the growth of thicker and more dense hair. Dr. Smith isolates the highest concentration of growth factors into a substance known as platelet-rich fibrin matrix (PRFM), which she then injects into areas of hair loss to stimulate new hair growth.
How Are Exosomes Administered?
We topically apply our exosome products to your skin or scalp after your cosmetic procedure. With clean, gloved hands, we will smooth the product over your treatment area in an even layer and gently pat it into your skin.
Will I Need Downtime After Exosome Therapy?
Most of the cosmetic treatments that can be combined with exosome products don’t require downtime, and exosome therapy itself does not require any recovery time. For the cosmetic treatments that need minimal downtime (Micro Laser Peel and ProFractional laser resurfacing), adding our exosome products after your treatment can actually reduce your recovery time since they speed healing in the treatment area.
How Much Does Exosome Therapy Cost?
You can add exosome therapy to any of the services mentioned above for $200 per treatment.
