How Do Exosomes Work?
Exosomes exist at the cellular level to assist with the body’s ability to recognize old and inactive cells and help them to repair and regenerate into newer, healthier cells and tissues. Their job is to aid intracellular communication, helping the receiving cell’s molecules to carry out the cell’s intended mission in the body. This process allows both close and distant cells to exchange information. Exosomes are often classified as stem cells, but there are several key differences between the treatments; the most important being that exosomes cannot die and are not rejected by the body, allowing the cells to continue working longer and more effectively.
The exosomes we work with are scanned for any possible viruses or bacteria before they are collected. Once collected, we combine the highly concentrated exosomes with either sterile saline or PRP. As a mixture, exosomes can then be injected into a specific area of the body where cell turnover is necessary to address injury or rejuvenation.
We induce an inflammatory response by injecting the exosomes into the desired treatment area. The injection will automatically trigger a targeted inflammatory response and dispatch cells to the injection site so that the natural repairing process will begin. The concentrated exosomes that are administered during this treatment will be the first step toward repaired and regenerated cells.
Repair and Regeneration
The subacute stage of inflammation is all about healing and repairing. The injected exosomes enhance this process by relaying information to neighboring cells to help regenerate and repair old or damaged cells at a higher capacity than PRP, via intracellular communication.
Maturation and Remodeling
As the healing process continues, the exosomes are working hard to rejuvenate the older cells by supplying the nutrients they need to work at their best. Although this is the final step to lasting results, the exosomes will continue to work after treatment is complete. Multiple treatments may be needed for maintenance or long term results.
