Microneedling is a collagen induction therapy that can address a range of concerns and improve overall skin quality. It works by creating tiny vertical needle punctures in the skin’s top layer, resulting in micro-injuries that stimulate the body’s healing process. This increases collagen production, which can repair scars and renew dull skin.
At Cutis, we use the Dermapen 4 device to administer the treatment due to its versatility. It can target hard-to-reach areas and has the ability to create fine fractional channels up to 104% faster than other skin-needling devices. Dermapen 4 also has expert formulations that can elevate the procedure and accelerate the results of microneedling.
EXO SKIN™ EXOSOMES are the new non-negotiables that complement microneedling procedures. These expert formulations feature exosomes, which are messenger particles that help with tissue regeneration. We have the MG-EXO-SKIN™ used as a glide in in-clinic procedures and EXO-SKIN™ used as a part of ongoing homecare.
So, what are exosomes?
As previously mentioned, exosomes are messenger particles that are released by cells in the body. They play an important role in intercellular communication, transferring genetic information throughout the body. Exosomes also release growth factors and help stimulate beneficial processes such as tissue repair, healing, and regeneration.
Also known as extracellular vesicles, exosomes contain various biomolecules, such as lipids, proteins, or nucleic acids. They are passed from a healthy cell to a damaged one, giving a signal to repair themselves. Exosomes can be used in various ways and microneedling is an efficient delivery system for them.
Exosomes in EXO SKIN™
The exosomes used in EXO-SKIN formulations are ethically derived and are proven to be effective in regulating regenerative processes in the body. They also offer a multipotent, youngest, and purest source that has been shown to:
- Enhance collagen and elastin synthesis
- Regulate wound healing
- Enhance angiogenesis or the formation of new blood cells
MG-EXO-SKIN – is used in professional microneedling and other in-office regenerative procedures. Delivery through Dermapen 4 enables the regenerative capabilities of exosomes to speed up the results of the treatment. It can help improve several skin conditions, including aging, pigmentation, rosacea, and sun damage.
MG-EXO-SKIN transforms aesthetic treatments with dual HylaFuse™ and Calphasome™ delivery systems. You may also be glad to know that automated microneedling like Dermapen 4 is the most effective delivery mechanism of exosomes into the skin, without compromising their integrity.
EXO-SKIN – is used at home to further improve the results of professional procedures. It is advisable to use EXO-SKIN two times a day, morning and night, for post-op and ongoing homecare. Both formulations deliver a skin regeneration solution that can help improve overall skin quality.
MG-EXO-SKIN and EXO-SKIN also contain support ingredients that can enhance the delivery of active ingredients. They also provide benefits associated with skin hydration, reducing inflammation, and tissue repair and regeneration.
Benefits of EXO SKIN™ EXOSOMES include:
- Maximized potential of skin regeneration
- Boosts natural cellular repair, signals for more youthful-looking skin
- Helps reduce the appearance of aging skin, pigmentation, and rosacea
- Promotes normalized and youthful regeneration
- Renews and refreshes for revitalized function
Exosomes for anti-aging
As previously mentioned, exosomes are used in different ways, which include general medicine and skin and hair treatments. At Cutis, we use it for addressing issues related to aging and tired-looking skin. As exosomes can positively affect healing, as well as collagen and elastin regeneration, they can help improve fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, and overall skin texture and health.
We use it alongside Dermapen 4 microneedling, which creates fine micro-channels in the skin. These enable the exosomes and other support ingredients to penetrate through the skin with even distribution. This is sometimes a more suitable option for many patients, instead of harsh chemicals or more invasive treatments.
Here’s how exosomes can lead to skin rejuvenation:
- Treat or minimize aging symptoms (like moderate facial wrinkles)
- Help you achieve a radiant complexion
- Reduce redness and irritation
- Promote the development of fibroblast cells (helpful in maintaining skin elasticity and strength)
- Reduce recovery time from certain treatments
