How effective is Microneedling/Exosome facial in reducing wrinkles?

Screen Shot 2023 05 28 at 11.46.16 AM

Exosomes reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen and elastin formation by up to 300%.  Collagen and elastin are essential components of the connective or support tissue underlying the skin. The firmer this underlayer, the fewer the fine lines and wrinkles.  In our experience, a noticeable reduction in fine lines and wrinkles is observed within days of a single painless treatment and continues to improve for several weeks.  Heavily sun damaged skin with loose skin and deep wrinkles may require a follow-up treatment for optimal results

What are Exosomes?

Exosomes are naturally occurring, microscopic vesicles that our cells produce to communicate with each other. Exosomes used in our facial treatments are highly specialized to promote skin rejuvenation. They contain numerous growth factors, Collagen Types 1 & 3, and hyaluronic acid that target the dermis, subcutaneous tissue and hair follicles for repair.

As a result, Exosomes reduce inflammation, stimulate collagen and elastin formation by up to 300%, decrease sun-induced pigmentation, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and improve acne scar appearance.

Each Exosome Facial treatment releases millions of these tiny vesicles, triggering a rapid, natural therapeutic response. Our Exosomes are selected for their restorative capability, are non-immunogenic, and have undergone extensive testing for purity and safety.


What is MicroNeedling?

MicroNeedling is a minimally invasive, restorative procedure for your skin. We use the FDA-cleared SkinPen device.  After a thorough cleansing and topical anesthetic is applied, our therapist uses a hand-held, pen-like device tipped with tiny, thin needles to make tiny punctures in the top layer of your skin. These tiny holes help stimulate your skin’s healing process, so it produces more collagen and elastin. These proteins keep your skin firm and smooth.

Most people get MicroNeedling on their face, but you can also get it on your neck, hands, arms or other areas where you notice damaged or aging skin.


How is MicroNeedling/Exosome facial different from laser and radiofrequency treatments?

MicroNeedling/Exosome facials do not burn or destroy tissue and are pain-free.  Unlike lasers, there is no blistering, prolonged swelling, intense redness, or risk of burn scars.  And unlike radiofrequency, there is no potential for damage to underlying nerves and blood vessels. MicroNeedling/Exosome facials repair damaged skin by stimulating the body’s natural healing capability without risk of injury. Exosomes used in our facial treatments are highly specialized to promote skin rejuvenation.


Is MicroNeedling/Exosome treatment safe for my skin type?

Screen Shot 2023 05 28 at 11.46.16 AM

MicroNeedling/Exosome facials are safe for all skin types. Fair skin that may over-react to laser treatments by blistering and scarring will respond more proportionately to Exosomes.  That is because skin rejuvenation from Exosome stimulation depends on each person’s unique healing and repair capacity. The same holds true for darker skin which may be more likely to scar after laser burn injury.  Again, Exosomes will trigger a healing response directly proportional to each person’s natural skin rejuvenation capability.


Does MicroNeedling/Exosome help acne scars and discoloration?

Absolutely. Exosomes introduced into the skin by the painless MicroNeedling process build up underlying skin connective tissue, reducing the appearance of acne scars.  Discoloration from acne and sun damage improve dramatically after a single treatment. This is due to stimulation by Exosomes of the body’s natural healing response leading to rejuvenation of skin cells and structure.

What kind of results should I expect after a MicroNeedling / Exosome facial session?

The beauty of this treatment is that it doesn’t break down the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) so there is no scarring and no downtime. The body’s natural healing system simply goes to work repairing the perceived damage. All you see is fresher and younger skin within a week. Some redness after treatment is normal but subsides by the next day. Skin can feel dry and taut over several days. There is no blistering or sloughing of skin as seen with other more invasive treatments.  Noticeable skin rejuvenation can be expected to last 12 to 18 months.
