Welcome to Everglow Medical Aesthetics in Kennebunk, ME, where we’re excited to introduce you to the latest breakthrough in skincare: exosome treatments. Specifically, we're diving into the transformative Benev Exosome solution used in conjunction with microneedling and lasers. Let's explore how this innovative treatment can rejuvenate your skin and why it’s gaining such popularity.

What Are Exosomes?

Exosomes are tiny, naturally occurring particles produced by almost all types of cells in the body. These microscopic vesicles, which are about 30-150 nanometers in size, act as messengers between cells. They carry important substances like proteins, lipids, and genetic material (RNA) from one cell to another. This communication helps with many biological processes such as tissue repair, immune responses, and cell growth. Unlike larger particles, exosomes can easily move through complex environments and deliver their contents directly into other cells, influencing their behavior and promoting healing at a cellular level.

Why Are Exosomes Trending?

Exosomes have surged in popularity within the beauty and medical aesthetics industries due to their unparalleled regenerative properties. They are being hailed as a revolutionary advancement in skincare because of their ability to deliver concentrated growth factors and bioactive molecules deep into the skin, leading to more effective and longer-lasting results. High-profile dermatologists and aesthetic practitioners, along with numerous celebrities, have been raving about exosome-based treatments. Influencers and beauty experts on social media platforms have also spotlighted these treatments, showcasing impressive before-and-after transformations. The buzz around exosomes is not just hype; clinical studies and patient testimonials consistently highlight significant improvements in skin texture, tone, and overall youthfulness.

What Do Exosomes Do?

When applied in skincare, exosomes work on multiple levels to rejuvenate the skin, offering a comprehensive approach to achieving a youthful and radiant complexion. First, exosomes enhance skin regeneration and repair by promoting the regeneration of damaged cells and tissues. This is achieved through their rich content of growth factors and signaling molecules that communicate with skin cells to initiate healing processes. As a result, wounds heal faster, scars diminish, and the overall integrity of the skin is improved.

Exosomes also significantly boost collagen and elastin production. These proteins are vital for maintaining the skin's structural integrity and elasticity. By stimulating fibroblasts, the cells responsible for collagen and elastin synthesis, exosomes help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, resulting in firmer, more resilient skin.

Another critical function of exosomes is their ability to reduce inflammation. Thanks to their anti-inflammatory properties, exosomes can calm irritated skin, reduce redness, and help prevent acne breakouts. This makes them particularly beneficial for individuals with sensitive or acne-prone skin, as they not only address existing issues but also help in preventing future flare-ups.  We are seeing much less downtime after procedures when we use exosomes. 

Furthermore, exosomes improve skin texture and tone by addressing pigmentation issues and refining pores. They work to even out skin discolorations, whether from sun damage, hormonal changes, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. By promoting a more even distribution of melanin, exosomes help achieve a smoother, more uniform skin tone. Additionally, their action in refining pores and smoothing out skin irregularities contributes to a clearer and more radiant complexion.

Overall, exosomes offer a multi-faceted approach to skin rejuvenation, addressing various aspects of skin health from deep within. This makes them a powerful tool in modern skin care, capable of delivering visible and lasting improvements and faster healing time after treatments. 

Exosomes vs. PRP

Platelet-rich plasma or fibrin  (PRP & PRF) and exosomes are both popular for skin rejuvenation, but they have distinct differences. PRP and PRF are derived from the patient’s own blood and is rich in growth factors and cytokines. Exosomes, on the other hand, are derived from stem cells and contain a more potent and diverse array of regenerative molecules. While PRP/PRF promotes healing and stimulates collagen production, exosomes provide a higher concentration of bioactive factors, leading to more profound and faster results. Exosomes can also address a broader range of skin concerns compared to PRP.  We recommend using exosomes for our older patients, as the benefit is far greater than PRP/PRF.  

Microneedling with Benev Exosome Solution: A Step-by-Step Guide

Microneedling with Benev Exosome solution is an advanced procedure designed to maximize the benefits of both microneedling and exosomes, offering a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation.

  1. Consultation: Your journey begins with a personalized consultation at Everglow Medical Aesthetics. Our skilled practitioners will assess your skin’s needs, discuss your goals, and determine if you’re a suitable candidate for the treatment.

  2. Preparation: On the day of your treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to your skin to ensure maximum comfort during the procedure. This takes about 30 minutes to take effect.

  3. Microneedling (or Laser): Using a specialized microneedling device (or laser), we will create controlled micro-injuries in the skin with fine, sterile needles. This stimulates the skin's natural healing process and creates micro-channels that enhance the penetration of topical treatments.

  4. Application of Benev Exosome Solution: Immediately after microneedling, the Benev Exosome solution is applied to your skin. The micro-channels allow the exosomes to penetrate deeply into the dermis, where they deliver their potent regenerative properties directly to the target cells.

  5. Post-Treatment Care: After the procedure, we will provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and results. It is important to avoid sun exposure and follow a gentle skincare routine.

This procedure is typically done in a series of three treatments spaced about a month apart, with maintenance treatments recommended once a year to maintain results. You’ll begin to see significant improvements in about two weeks following each session. 

Recovery and Downtime

One of the appealing aspects of this treatment is its minimal downtime. Post-treatment, you may experience some redness and mild swelling, similar to a mild sunburn, which typically subsides within 24 to 48 hours. You may also notice some mild peeling or dryness as your skin heals and regenerates. Following our aftercare instructions, including avoiding sun exposure and using gentle skincare products, will help ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results. The use of exosomes drastically reduces downtime with our lasers.  

Ideal Candidates for Microneedling with Benev Exosome Solution

Ideal candidates for microneedling with Benev Exosome solution include individuals seeking to improve their skin's overall texture and tone. This treatment is particularly beneficial for those looking to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, diminish acne scars, and address hyperpigmentation issues. It's also an excellent option for individuals wanting to enhance their skin's natural radiance and achieve a more youthful, revitalized complexion. People with varying skin types and concerns can benefit from this treatment, making it a versatile and effective option for many.

Our Microneedling Options

At Everglow Medical Aesthetics, we offer three distinct types of microneedling to cater to different skin needs and goals:

  • ProCell Microchanneling: This advanced form of microneedling uses a device that creates precise micro-channels in the skin to deliver high concentrations of peptides, growth factors, and cytokines directly to the deeper layers. This method not only stimulates collagen production but also enhances the skin’s ability to heal and regenerate quickly, resulting in improved texture, firmness, and overall skin health.

  • Collagen P.I.N. Microneedling: Utilizing a pen-like device with fine, adjustable needles, Collagen P.I.N. microneedling offers controlled precision to target specific areas of concern. This technique is excellent for reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and scars, and it helps to even out skin tone. The depth of the needles can be adjusted to customize the treatment based on the patient’s unique skin needs.

  • Pixel-8 Microneedling with radiofrequency (RF): Combining the benefits of microneedling with radiofrequency energy, this treatment delivers RF energy deep into the skin layers through the micro-needles. This dual approach enhances collagen and elastin production, leading to superior skin tightening and rejuvenation. It’s particularly effective for those with more significant signs of aging, such as sagging skin and deeper wrinkles, offering both immediate and long-term benefits.

  • Lasers including CO2 and Erbium also pair well with exosomes as well.
