What are exosomes?

How do exosomes aid in the skin’s recovery after a procedure?

Exosomes facilitate the transfer of growth factors, cytokines, and proteins between cells. They are derived and purified from human adipose stem cells and serve as the cells’ endoplasmic reticulum. Exosomes have significant anti-inflammatory properties to help the skin recover after procedures such as SmartXide Fractionated DOT CO2 Laser and Sylfirm X RF microneedling by reducing redness and swelling. Furthermore, after exosomes are applied to the skin, our fibroblasts respond by increasing collagen and elastin production. This decreases the skin’s sagging, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation while improving its tone and texture. As a result, there is enhancement of the skin’s appearance and decreased downtime from procedures.

Which exosomes are used at New Bloom Dermatology?

Our exosomes of choice are Exosome Regenerative Complex (ERC) from Benev. They have a proprietary combination of growth factors, peptides, and vitamins. Some of these components include vitamin C, which can decrease hyperpigmentation and free radical formation, and sodium hyaluronate, a stronger form of hyaluronic acid that hydrates the skin.

Are exosomes injected? Is the use of exosomes approved by the FDA?

The FDA does not approve the injection of exosomes and consequently, the providers at New Bloom Dermatology do not inject exosomes.

The topical use of exosomes is not regulated by the FDA. Exosomes are not drug products. They are not intended to prevent, treat, or cure diseases or medical conditions.

Is Exosome Regenerative Complex (ERC) safe to use topically?

Yes, Exosome Regenerative Complex (ERC) is safe and backed by thirteen clinical papers. The topical use of ERC has been approved by the Personal Care Products Council (PCPC), the leading American trade association representing cosmetics and personal care products.
