Exosomes are protein building blocks that mediate between cells, with functions that are independent of cells themselves. They help stem cells to communicate, transferring biological data from one cell to another. It is traditionally known that cells communicate via single proteins and molecules, but exosomes represent a novel way to see it. The transmission of biological information, in the case of exosomes, is made within a particle structure. Therefore, exosomes are a fundamental part of cell to cell communication and research about them improve possibilities for their use in regenerative medicine dramatically.
Knowledge about exosomes has the possibility to make facial rejuvenation, joint regeneration and even organs regeneration take a giant step ahead. Restoring organic matter this way looks much more promising than it was before. Of course, hair loss is also a field that increases its potential, thanks to exosomes. In the case of hair loss or thinning hair, exosomes are applied in two ways: the first is by creating a serum that is injected the same way as in a blood treatment, with a filtration, manufacturing and isolation of the exosomes, and the serum can be enriched with other growth factors. The second way is with a micro-needling technique, puncturing the person´s scalp and thus improving the retention and efficacy of the treatment. Micro-needling is gaining more relevance as time passes by, and it is considered as a minimally invasive hair regeneration treatment with very good results. .
Microneedling can also be combined with Exosomes for anti-aging. Exosomes therapy might be the next stage in the evolution of rejuvenative therapy. Microneedling creates hundreds to thousands of “micro” channels to stimulate the skin’s natural wound healing process to prompt tissue remodeling without causing scar tissue formation. The rapid release of growth factors in Exosomes promotes the body’s natural healing process. This leads to an improvement in both the appearance and texture of your skin by stimulating collagen and elastin production
