EXOSOME THERAPY: THE NEXT BIG THING IN SKIN CARE
The future of skin rejuvenation is here! The new buzzworthy ingredient making waves: exosomes. While skin care is no stranger to the advancements provided by the ever evolving science and technology industries, it is regenerative medicine that is leading the charge on treating the root causes of several long standing skin concerns, such as the signs of aging, hyperpigmentation and inflammation. And they’re doing this with the help of a little nanoparticle called exosomes.
SO WHAT ARE EXOSOMES, EXACTLY?
Exosomes are derived from human stem cells and contain important components, such as DNA, RNA, amino acids, peptides, growth factors and nutrients, that help the body heal. Stem cells are the building blocks of the body and use their abilities to self-renew (create new stem cells) and differentiate (create mature cells). Each stem cell in the body has a specialized function, and in order to do that function, it needs to be carried to different parts of the body. That’s where exosomes come into play. These stem cell “messengers” help communicate self-renewal instructions to damaged cells so they can be repaired.
HOW DOES EXOSOME THERAPY WORK?
Similar to collagen and elastin, the body produces fewer exosomes as it ages. This leads to skin issues like skin laxity, dehydration and wrinkles. Exosomes may originate from stem cells, but they are vastly different with one major contrast being that stem cells cannot be used in a targeted manner. But exosomes can. The decades of stem cell research show just that; the regenerative power of these “natural healers” – not stem cells – are the ones to thank for restoring the skin’s form and function from within. Which is exactly why exosome therapy has been gaining a reputation as the skin rejuvenation treatment, widely known as skinbooster treatments throughout Asia and Europe.
Current popular treatments, like fillers and wrinkle reducers, are incredible at correcting signs of aging, but they don’t actually heal damaged skin. Exosome therapy specifically works to target this damage and reverse its effects on the skin.
HOW DOES EXOSOME THERAPY DIFFER FROM PRP THERAPY?
By now, most have heard of the “Vampire Facial.” This treatment requires a blood draw in order to access their body’s platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. The blood then undergoes a centrifuge process, in which the blood cells are separated. With exosome therapy, no blood draw is required. Because this regenerative powerhouse has 100x more growth factors than PRP therapy, exosome therapy is 30x more potent¹.
Dr. Park travels to Seoul, South Korea to experience the latest in exosome therapy and develop protocols for the AIREM Exosome SkinBooster treatment. Watch her treatment here.
The exosomes in the AIREM Exosome SkinBooster are designed to help skin cells regenerate at a faster rate so you can have healthy, more radiant skin. In this skin rejuvenation treatment, AIREM uses exosome serum derived from a FDA-registered lab of donated human stem cells that have undergone a purification process to remove impurities. Our team of medical and skin care experts administer this serum directly post microneedling or laser treatments as it has been shown to enhance results and provide a quicker-than-normal healing process.
With traditional or radiofrequency microneedling, the mini “wounds” caused by the needles stimulate the body to produce more growth factors for healing as well as increase collagen and elastin production. The process allows the exosome serum to be absorbed and reach the deeper skin layers which ultimately makes the treatment that much more effective. Because the exosome nanoparticles are very small, they can enter the skin easily.

ADDING THE AIREM EXOSOME SKINBOOSTER TO THE FOLLOWING TREATMENTS:
MIRACELL (RADIOFREQUENCY MICRONEEDLING)
CLARIPORE (LASER RESURFACING)
SKINEVEN (LASER RESURFACING)
FADEAWAY (LASER RESURFACING)
WHAT SKIN CONCERNS DOES AN EXOSOME FACIAL REJUVENATION TREAT?
The exosomes’ enormous ability to battle signs of aging, hyperpigmentation and inflammation while helping the body heal itself naturally lies in its capacity to increase collagen production (up to 6 times) and elastin levels (up to 300%)¹. An increase in the collagen and elastin levels help with the following skin concerns:
- Hyperpigmentation: noticeably reduces the appearance of age spots
- Sagging skin: visibly makes skin appear firmer
- Wrinkles: visibly reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Dehydration: intensely hydrates and nourishes skin
- Scarring: improves the appearance of skin lesions and scars due to acne, medical procedures or accidents
- Inflammation: soothes redness and irritation caused by skin conditions such as eczema and rosacea
- Uneven skin tone: promotes a more radiant and even toned complexion
- Enlarged pores: visibly reduces pore size
WHO IS THE BEST CANDIDATE FOR AN EXOSOME FACIAL?
Exosome therapy is for anyone who is looking to naturally increase their skin’s health from the inside out. An Exosome SkinBooster is especially beneficial for those experiencing any of the following skin concerns:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Dehydrated skin
- Sagging skin
- Sun damage
- Age spots
- Uneven texture
- Enlarged pores
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF AN EXOSOME SKINBOOSTER?
An AIREM Exosome SkinBooster treatment not only helps improve the overall results of non-surgical aesthetic treatments but also includes the following key benefits:
- Non-surgical, minimally invasive, skin rejuvenation
- No downtime required
- No need for blood draw
- Quick 15-minute treatment
- Safe for all skin types and pigments
- Visible results within weeks as collagen production is stimulated
- Can be added to aesthetic treatments to boost results
