About Exosome Therapy

Time inevitably leaves its mark on all of us, but there are ways to help keep your skin looking smooth and healthy. If you are struggling with blemishes or rough texture, med spa treatments can be very beneficial in restoring your skin’s appearance. In addition, the latest nanotechnology allows us to use exosomes topically, improving communication between cells and giving you a healthier complexion.

Exosomes were first identified by scientists in the 1960s and have received greater attention since then. Researchers learned more about them during the years that followed, and they recognized their therapeutic potential quickly. [1]

In the past few years, studies have unveiled how important exosomes are for many bodily functions like wound healing and skin health. Exosomes can also be employed with cosmetic anti-aging procedures to improve the look and feel of the skin. For example, treatments such as microneedling can be taken to the next level by utilizing exosomes; this is because the tiny microchannels made by the needles act as a delivery system for exosomes, which then aid in skin restructuring. So what exactly are exosomes, and how do they help us achieve healthy, radiant skin?

What Are Exosomes?

Exosomes are tiny particles released by cells that encourage tissue regeneration. [2] They are extracellular vesicles (EVs), tiny sac-like structures that contain fluid and play an important role in the ability of cells to communicate with each other. EVs can help the body heal and remodel itself, as they contain several vital molecules. They also transport nourishing “cargo” from cell to cell. 

The transfer of matter between cells helps to keep the body healthy. Cell communication must be quick in order for the body to function correctly, especially after an illness or injury. The faster the body can heal and operate efficiently, the better state it’s in. So, exosomes are essential regulators of cell behavior and overall vitality.

Exosomes contain critical compounds that either activate or hinder the following cell functions:

  • The healing of wounds
  • Remodeling of the skin’s structure
  • Changes in the immune system
  • The formation of new blood vessels
  • Prevention of cell death
  • The movements, growth, and changes in cells [2]

What Functions Do Exosomes Help to Carry Out?

Some processes that utilize exosomes include:

  • Fibroblasts – The most common cell types in connective tissue, which are essential for wound healing and tissue regeneration. [3]
  • Keratinocytes – Keratinocytes are skin cells that play a key part in the formation of skin structure and defense.
  • Immune Cells – This list includes mast cells, macrophages, and neutrophils, all of which are essential for fighting disease and infection.
  • Growth Factors – Stimulate a wide range of cell activities. Control and promote cell division and growth.
  • Cytokines – Small molecular messengers that control inflammation and boost the immune system.
  • RNA – Our genetic code contains ribonucleic acid (RNA), which, similar to DNA, holds information necessary for many biological functions.

Benefiting Patients with Eczema

Recent research has uncovered promising developments in the study of exosomes and how they may benefit the skin. Exosomes have been found to be particularly beneficial for treating chronic skin problems. Scientists investigated the function of exosomes in eczema, a type of chronic skin problem that causes itchy, painful blisters. According to researchers in South Korea, Exosomes help with skin barrier repairs and restore skin barrier function. [4]

Exosome Therapy can help cells communicate more effectively, so you not only improve your skin health but also get an aesthetic glow!

ExoSCRT™ Technology

ExoSCRT™ is a cutting-edge innovation that has the ability to separate and refine 0.1% pure exosomes from stem cells with ease. Our topical treatments are meant to be absorbed quickly into the skin, delivering concentrated exosome benefits.

Please Note: Exosome Therapy and ExoSCRT technology are not drugs meant to either prevent or cure medical conditions. Following a prior skin treatment, they can only be used topically–not injected or delivered intravenously.

Ideal Candidates for Exosome Therapy

The ideal candidate for Exosome Therapy is looking to improve the following:

  • Mild to moderate wrinkles
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Lackluster, dull complexion
  • Blemishes or discoloration
  • Uneven skin texture and tone
  • Wound healing

How Often Should I Use Exosome Therapy?

For optimal results, we recommend one to two sessions. You may further benefit from maintenance sessions, but we will lay out your treatment plan in detail during your consultation.

Rejuvenating Skin Treatments

People come to Southern Surgical Arts for a variety of reasons. Whether you’re seeking anti-aging treatment, care for blemishes or scars, skin texture improvement, or simply want to improve your skin’s overall brightness and hydration levels, we can help you achieve your goals

Topical Exosomes can be added to the following skin treatments:


Microneedling treatments use needles that are very small and precise. These needles create tiny micro-injuries that stimulate the skin’s regenerative capabilities in the deep layers of tissues. As a result, collagen is boosted, and the structural support system of the skin is improved; this can lead to better skin regeneration, a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, as well as tighter, smoother skin.

Laser Skin Treatment

Skin resurfacing, pigmentation correction, facial rejuvenation, and hair removal are among the many applications of Laser & Light Therapy in skin care. Aesthetic lasers that utilize Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) technology allow patients to get reduced redness, combat hyperpigmentation, and promote collagen production. Erbium lasers may also be used to offer minimally-invasive resurfacing treatments to assist smooth skin and reducing scar appearance.

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels work by removing dead skin cells and debris, revealing the fresher, newer skin beneath. They are an effective treatment for wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and acne. Custom formulations can be used on a number of areas of the body, including the face and neck, back, shoulders, lips, and hands. We offer a wide selection of chemical peels to suit your individual skin care needs, including:

  • Skin Lightening Peel
  • Jessner Peels
  • Custom Blended Treatments

The type of peel you receive will be based on your individual needs and desired outcome.
