Exosome Therapy: The Ultimate Alternative to Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

By March 30, 2020Healthy Skin

What’s the newest and best thing out right now for anti-aging and skin rejuvenation? This is a question that we are asked on a daily basis from patients. Well, drumroll please… Let me introduce you to exosomes!!

What are exosomes?

Exosomes are tiny molecules found in all cells in our bodies. You can think of them like the mailman. They are responsible for cell to cell communication. They carry messages to cells and deliver their cargo which includes items such as growth factors, cytokines, and genetic material. Benev Exosome Regenerative Complex has over 2 BILLION STEM CELL DERIVED LYOPHILIZED EXOSOMES potent GROWTH FACTORS, PEPTIDES, COENZYMES, MINERALS, AMINO ACIDS. and VITAMINS without including any genetic material as is the case with other stem cell therapies.

How do exosomes work?

Benev Exosome Regenerative Complex contains nano-size particles that are applied topically after procedures like microneedling or Morpheus8. They are rapidly and easily absorbed into the skin due to the small size of the particles. The active ingredients are then taken into the different types of skin cells and send messages to increase dermal fibroblast to start the collagen remodeling process.

Best results are seen with a series of our signature X-Rated Facial which combines microneedling followed by topical application of Benev Exosome Reegnerative Complex. We only offer treatments with strong data-driven evidence for the best results. Studies with this combination show:

  • 96.4% of patients noticed a decrease in fine lines, wrinkles and age spots after just 5 treatments and 89.6% of patients showed results after just the 3rd treatment.
  • 98.1% of patients stated that their overall complexion appeared to be brighter and more hydrated after 5 treatments, and 94.7% of patients showed results after the 3rd treatment.
  • 87.3% of patients reported a reduction in redness and skin irritation after 3 treatments and 82.4% of patients stated their skin felt and looked calmer after the 2nd treatment.

What results are we seeing with exosomes?

There are so many benefits to using the exosome regenerative complex with your procedures to boost your results! First, it absolutely reduces the downtime that is involved with Morpheus, regular microneedling, or even chemical peels. It can also be used for all skin types and skin conditions to improve your results. The exosome regenerative complex decreases redness and irritation, decreases hyperpigmentation, rehydrates and brightens the skin, decreases scarring and lesions, improves skin texture, and decreases pore size.

We are starting to see benefits in adding Benev Regenerating Complex to the end of Morpheus8 treatments. We do a lot of Morpheus8 in our office and see amazing results for skin tightening and resurfacing. There is some down time that inevitably comes with the treatment; however, and at one week after the treatment, the skin usually still has some redness, peeling, and occasionally some swelling. The first 3-4 days have the worst redness and swelling. Most people just don’t have time for that!!

A few weeks ago, I received my first Morpheus8 treatment from Dr. Saxon. To my surprise, my face and neck barely looked like I had anything done at all after 2 days! I could even tell a difference immediately after the exosomes were applied post procedure. I would say the redness was at least 50% less immediately post procedure than what I normally see with my patients after a Morpheus8 treatment

How do exosomes compare to PRP?

Benev Exosome Regenerative Complex comes in 2 vials that are reconstituted for topical application. All the work behind this product is done in an FDA-approved lab with the highest standards in quality. No blood draws or equipment is needed in the office, so the treatment is nearly half the cost of platelet rich plasma. It also contains a much higher concentration of growth factors for even better results.

The future is bright for exosome therapies. There are subcutaneous as well as intravenous formulations already approved for FDA trials. We are seeing a lot of promise in providing an alternative to dermal filler treatments since injecting exosomes may increase facial volume. We are excited to see what the future will bring!
