The exosome was discovered and described more than 30 years ago. However, these lipid vesicles have been recognized for the important work they do inside the human body. Mesenchymal stem cells have been at the front end of regenerative medicine for many years. Exosomes, which are nanovesicles involved in intercellular communication and transporting the genetic material transportation that will be released by mesenchymal stem cells, have been recently reported to play a major role in cell-free therapy of many diseases, including myocardial infarction, drug addiction, and status epilepticus. They are also thought to help ameliorate inflammation-induced preterm brain injury, liver injury, and various types of cancer. Today, scientists and medical researchers have new ways to put these microscopic shuttles to work in aesthetics and dermatology.

What Is an Exosome?

Exosomes are small vesicles, or sacs, that exist outside the normal cell structure of the body. These membranous vesicles are released from cells when an interior vesicle makes contact with the outer wall of the cell and fuses with it, releasing the vesicles contained inside. They can also be released directly from the plasma membrane.

The Potential for Amazing Results

Because of its vital role as a storage and transportation medium, scientists believe that the exosomes provide a way to deliver stem cell therapy and other treatments throughout the body. At our office, we can provide targeted exosome treatments that can provide added help in facial rejuvenation while subsequently resolving issues with the following problems:

  • Mobility problems and pain associated with orthopedic recoveries
  • Arthritis and inflammation of the joints
  • Hair loss or dry, lackluster hair
  • Reduced sexual interest or sexual dysfunction

The stem cell treatments available from the Aspen Institute for Anti-Aging & Regenerative Medicine can provide you with real solutions for Aesthetics.

An Ideal Delivery System

Because the exosome is believed to be involved in the transmission of messages and macromolecules between cells inside the body, it can provide added help in the healing and recovery process. The proteins, DNA, messenger RNA, microRNA and lipids commonly found in these vesicles can contribute to faster healing for injuries and improved immune responses for joint pain and arthritis. This advanced stem cell therapy can also boost healing throughout the body to enhance your overall state of health and well-being.

Exosomes are revolutionizing the regenerative medicine field. Contact the Aspen Institute for Anti-Aging & Regenerative Medicine at 970-201-1332 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Gershon and to discover how exosome stem cell therapy can provide a lasting regenerative solution to your problems.
