How Does Exosome Therapy Work?
Our bodies have the powerful ability to heal themselves naturally. However, sometimes this process is disrupted, leading to cosmetic issues or soft tissue injuries that are difficult to treat. Today, researchers are developing newer and more advanced treatments to promote healing. At Beyond Regenerative Medicine & Aesthetics, experienced physician Dr. Allyson Berkey is proud to offer exosome therapy in Newport Beach to improve your skin, your hairline, your cell performance, and overall health.
So, what are exosomes, and how do they work in regenerative medicine?
What are exosomes?
To learn how this therapy works, it is critical to understand the function of exosomes in regenerative medicine. Exosomes are produced by stem cells, and essentially are messengers carrying important information and proteins. They act as a communicator between all cells while affecting cell function and behavior. In recent years, physicians have used exosomes to promote tissue repair. This means exosomes can improve healing, slow inflammatory processes, and even produce anti-aging properties in patients.
The benefits of exosome therapy
When our cells communicate well with one another, they rush to a site of injury and successfully repair tissues. With natural aging, our bodies become less efficient in this process. This is why some illnesses take longer to heal as we get older. Environmental factors, genetics, and chronic diseases can also interfere with communication between cells. When exosomes are delivered into an injured or inflamed area, they signal the cells to turn down inflammation and pain while turning up repair and remodeling processes.
During your consultation, Dr. Berkey or a member of our trained staff will ask about your problem areas and general health. Exosome therapy can be used for skin rejuvenation purposes, soft tissue injuries, wound repair, joint issues, balding, erectile dysfunction, and more. We then create a custom treatment plan together. Some people only require one treatment, while others need multiple sessions to get the results they want.
How exosome therapy works
Beyond Regenerative Medicine & Aesthetics administers exosomes by injection or topically after microneedling. We use a local anesthetic to manage any discomfort and make sure you feel relaxed throughout your appointment. The time it takes to receive exosome therapy in Newport Beach depends on the size of the treatment area. Afterward, it is expected to see some redness and swelling at the injection sites. This is normal and should subside within a few days.
Safe and nonsurgical
People with specific conditions or cosmetic issues sometimes turn to surgery for solutions. While some procedures are necessary and beneficial, it is wonderful in many cases to have another option for treatment. Regenerative medicine through exosome therapy is nonsurgical. Our office strives for simple, safe, and effective treatments with long-lasting results.
