What Exosomes Are
Exosomes are extracellular vesicles, which are made our cells and excreted to communicate with other cells. Exosomes can be found in different tissues throughout the body, and are also found in blood, cerebrospinal fluid and urine. Exosomes act as cell signaling agents. They contain proteins, messenger RNA and micro-RNA, which have growth factors (HGF, IGF, FGF) and anti-inflammatory factors ( IL-10, TGF-beta3, PDG-E).
What Exosomes Do
The function of exosomes is to communicate with other cells. They can travel throughout the body and deliver a message from one cell to another.
Our Exosome Source: KimeraLabs uses single donor placentas and umbilical cords to produce stem cells. These stem cells are carefully screened for infectious agents. The exosomes produced from the baby stem cells are collected, purified and frozen at 80 degrees Celsius. They are sent to our office overnight from the lab and are stored in our freezer.
Exosomes for Skin Rejuvenation and Hair Restoration
After microneedling the skin, exosomes are applied topically to produce “Glowing Skin”.
Exosomes can be directly micro-needled into the scalp to help restore hair growth to thinned areas.
How Exosomes Are Used in Regenerative Medicine
Exosomes can be used to stimulate tissue growth, repair and regeneration in ligaments, cartilage and bones. They also trigger wound healing in soft tissue after an injury to the skin and can target areas that are inflamed to rapidly decrease inflammation. They can be mixed with your PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and injected directly into joints.
