5 Ways Exosomes Help Recovery After More Intense Cosmetic Procedures

5 Ways Exosomes Help Recovery After More Intense Cosmetic Procedures

Skin and Hair Rejuvenation

Dermatologists know the importance of aftercare following intense procedures like laser resurfacing or microneedling. It’s during this vulnerable phase that skin recovery is paramount, and achieving the best possible results often hinges on the right tools. That’s where exosomes come in. They are tiny cellular messengers with the potential to be added to your regular routine.

As an analogy, exosomes are microscopic mail carriers, shuttling vital instructions within your clients’ cells. When we look at it under the microscope of post-procedural care, these instructions include a toolkit for rejuvenation: growth factors, anti-inflammatory signals, and even blueprints for collagen production. Your clients will step out of your clinic after an intense procedure, not with the usual redness or discomfort, but with a radiant glow and a significantly faster recovery time.

What can Advancexo’s Exosomes do for your Client’s?

Here we break down five ways in which Advancexo’s exosomes can help your clients during post-procedural recovery.

1. Exosomes Reduce Redness

It is common to observe temporary redness that occurs after procedures like lasers and microneedling. The good thing is that exosomes are a holistic approach and provide multifaceted benefits. Exosomes carry signaling molecules that leverage signaling pathways for inflammation. It lessens the redness and sensitivity after an intense procedure, giving your clients the radiant glow they deserve. The results themselves are pretty profound.

2. Exosomes Reduce Scarring

While laser treatment can be used to reduce scarring, the use of exosomes assists in providing an effective treatment for lightening the scar. They work by providing stimulation for tissue repair and rejuvenation. Think of them as firefighters, extinguishing the flames of inflammation that can lead to scar tissue formation. Beyond just quelling inflammation, exosomes also contain instructions for fibroblasts (collagen-producing cells) to remodel scar tissue into healthy, normal skin.

3. Exosomes Stimulate Collagen

Due to aging, our body reduces the synthesis of collagen. In fact, we can lose up to 1% of our collagen synthesis ability per year. As collagen is continuously replenished in our body, this 1% drop in collagen synthesis makes our skin thinner, and its texture also decreases. Once a critical threshold is reached, we start to see wrinkles and deep lines. By applying exosomes to the skin, it starts to stimulate fibroblasts to synthesize collagen, which results in more elastic and thick skin. They promote healthy tissue regeneration and a smoother, scar-free appearance.

4. Exosomes Improve Skin Textures

Other than stimulating collagen synthesis, exosomes also hydrate and nourish the skin to assist in treating uneven texture. Stem cell derived exosomes possess inherent hydrating and nourishing properties that directly impact the quality of the extracellular matrix. With a boost in collagen synthesis and hydrating properties, exosomes can significantly influence skin texture.

5. Exosomes Repair Wounds

Exosomes derived from stem cells are brimming with enhanced rejuvenating abilities that can accelerate the wound healing process. In 2021, a group of researchers showed that administering stem cell derived exosomes significantly improved wound-closure rates.

Bonus Tip!

Exosome treatment is a relatively quick procedural treatment that delivers impactful results to your clients. The beauty of incorporating exosomes into your post-procedural care lies in their ability to significantly reduce downtime. It allows the clients to get back to their lives faster and provides a more positive overall experience.

All of these pathways come together to help you provide your patient with glowing and radiant skin. But you might wonder, How do we deliver exosomes to the patient’s skin?

How can Dermatologists Include Exosomes in Their Post-Procedural Routine?

Incorporating exosomes into your post-procedural routine can be straightforward, but it’s important to consider a few factors to optimize their use for your patients.

  • Application: Typically, exosome serums are applied topically after cleansing the treated area. Similar to any other topical product, follow the instructions provided by the specific exosome product you’re using. In certain cases, when treating hair conditions, injections or dermarollers can be used to help exosomes penetrate deeper.
  • Combination therapy: Exosomes could be used alongside other post-procedural treatments, such as hyaluronic acid fillers, laser resurfacing, chemical peel, or platelet-rich plasma (PRP), to enhance their effectiveness. They can also be used as standalone treatment options for different skin conditions, like melasma.
  • Frequency and Duration: The recommended frequency and duration of exosome use might vary depending on the specific procedure and the exosome product itself. Some factors to consider include the concentration of exosomes in the serum and the targeted concern. For instance, a serum with a higher concentration might be used less frequently compared to a serum with a lower concentration.

In certain cases, dermatologists might use a spray or go for mesotherapy to deliver exosomes to the targeted area. However, the appropriate delivery methods are carefully selected after analyzing each individual patient’s condition.

Which Exosomes to Choose?

While the cosmetic industry offers a variety of exosome sources, Wharton’s Jelly Mesenchymal Stem Cell (WJMSC) exosomes stand out for their exceptional ability to promote accelerated skin growth. Here’s why WJMSC exosomes are the gold standard:

  • Unmatched Regenerative Potential: Unlike exosomes from plant or adult stem cells (ASC), WJMSC exosomes are derived from zero-passage cells. These cells haven’t undergone cell division, making them similar to embryonic stem cells and granting them unmatched regenerative potential.
  • Powerhouse of Bioactive Molecules: WJMSC exosomes are loaded with a potent cocktail of growth factors, cytokines, and other regenerative molecules. This rich blend far surpasses what other sources offer, promoting significant improvements in various aspects of skin health.
  • Faster and More Comprehensive Results: Compared to ASC exosomes, WJMSC exosomes deliver quicker and more comprehensive results. They address concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, wound healing, and scar reduction, offering patients a radiant and youthful appearance.

By choosing WJMSC exosomes, you can offer your patients a powerful tool for achieving their desired results in skin rejuvenation and repair. Their ability to accelerate growth through potent bioactive molecules makes them the clear choice for those seeking a youthful and radiant complexion.

Exosomes: MVP of Post-Procedural Care

By promoting faster healing, minimizing inflammation, and enhancing tissue repair, exosomes contribute to a more comfortable recovery experience for your patients. This translates to a feeling of well-being “from the inside out.” They can return to their daily activities feeling confident and rejuvenated. Exosomes offer a transformative approach backed by sound scientific evidence.


For skin rejuvenation, umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cell (ucMSC) exosomes are best because they have many growth factors, cytokines, and bioactive molecules that carry stem cell-like properties. These exosomes promote tissue repair, regeneration, and immune modulation when applied to the skin, resulting in improved skin texture and tone.

The common delivery methods for exosome therapy in skin rejuvenation include topical application and microneedling. Topical application involves applying exosomes directly to the skin, while microneedling creates micro-injuries on the skin’s surface to facilitate deeper penetration of exosomes.

Exosomes stimulate collagen and elastin synthesis, enhance keratinocyte proliferation and differentiation, reduce inflammation, and promote improved vascularization, collectively leading to firmer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.
