Regenerative medicine is often misunderstood or not properly explained, leaving many people to wonder what the big deal is. Regenerative medicine includes a number of different treatments such as exosome therapy and stem cell therapy. Regenerative medicine can be used in a number of different ways and for many different purposes. As there is a lot of talk and excitement concerning stem cell and exosome therapy, Skin And Body Refinery would like to share what the differences are between stem cell and exosome therapy and which one will benefit you.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are a special and unique type of cells that is found in the human body. Stem cells are so unique because they can become any other type of cell in our body. Stem cells act as a building block and a repairing mechanism for our bodies. Stem cell therapy helps to guide the stem cells to specific parts of the body, turning it into certain cells. Stem cells can be found in several places, but most often in embryos, the umbilical cord, and in baby teeth. Adults will have traces of stem cells in their bone marrow or fat. Stem cell therapy often requires the use of donor stem cells that are used to repair damaged cells which aid in a healing process and other medical conditions. Stem Cell therapy can improve a number of medical problems and improve the body’s health. In medical cosmetics, stem cell therapy is often used for anti-aging. Not only can stem cells regenerate healthy skin cells, but it also promotes healthier organ functions. Not only will you look younger, but you will feel healthier and younger on the inside.
Exosomes are extracellular vesicles that are essentially tiny bubbles that are released from our stem cells. Exosomes carry both protein and genetic information to the cells throughout the entire body. This helps to create pathways of communication between the cells. Where stem cell therapy requires donor cells, exosome therapy does not. Instead exosomes are extracted from donated human mesenchymal stem cells and are then sterilized. An exosome solution contains valuable lipids, proteins, micro-RNA, messenger-RNA, and signaling cytokines. The exosome solution is given through an IV or by direct injections to the treatment site. Exosome is a powerful means of restoring cells throughout the body. Where stem cells are far more limited, an adult will have nearly three times the amount of exosomes which is proving to be a more reliable means of cell restoration. Currently exosome is a common cosmetic therapy for hair loss. The exosome therapy can help stimulate the hair follicles and help reverse thinning or balding hair. However, there are many different applications for exosome therapy. It is an anti-inflammatory, regenerates the cells, and even helps with anti-aging.
