Stem cells are multi-purpose cells that can become any cell the body requires, and they have been at the forefront of medical research for years. A decline in stem cells is part of the aging process, and introducing stem cells to the body in an effort to slow or halt the effects of aging has been successful. Exosome facials are the next step in the evolution of stem-cell therapy, and this type of facial is available from the professionals at Perfect Skin Center in Scottsdale or Tempe, AZ.
What Are Exosomes?
Initially, exosomes were thought to be a way for cells to offload waste. Exosomes were little containers of useless matter that cells throw out from time-to-time. Now, however, it’s been discovered that healthy cells also release exosomes as a way of communicating between cells. The treatment was developed using this new information.
Are They Stem Cells?
Stem cells are whole cells that have the potential to turn into any cell type in the body. Exosomes are not stem cells. They are biological messengers that cells use to transfer information between cells. Stem cells produce a lot of exosomes, and it is through these biological messengers that the stem cells’ ability to preserve youth can be harnessed.
Why Do Exosomes Matter?
When stem cells are injected into the body, it’s difficult to control what they do and ensure they become the desired type of cell. According to recent research, exosomes can be manipulated to perform a specific action – an ability as yet undiscovered in stem cells. For example, manipulating exosomes to tell cells to rebuild and rejuvenate the skin has led to the development of exosome facials.
What Are Exosome Facials?
You may have heard about the topical exosome face creams celebrities use to stay looking young. The treatment takes this a step further by incorporating microneedling to infuse exosomes, hyaluronic acid, and peptides into the skin for a much more potent regenerative effect. The treatment can help brighten your complexion and balance your skin tone and will remove redness and any skin irritation.
The power of exosomes doesn’t stop there. Treatment with exosomes can also improve skin lesions, scars, and reduce pore size. Exosome facials may be performed as a standalone treatment, with microneedling, or as a complementary treatment to nearly any treatment.
Is This Treatment Safe?
This treatment has no known side effects, drawbacks, or adverse effects. The product used in the treatment is purified and filtered to remove any unwanted additives. By introducing exosomes and the powerful growth they can stimulate, you can build firmer, more supple skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Stem cells have been closely studied for over a decade, and exosome therapies are some of the newest advances to come out of that research. Exosomes are messengers used by cells to transfer information from one cell to another and can be manipulated to disperse specific anti-aging information.
