Your body contains an astonishing capacity to heal itself at the cellular level. The administration of exosomes – little fluid sacs called extracellular vesicles – stimulates anti-inflammatory and reparative processes in your body to heal injuries and reduce pain. The exosomes send messages to cells throughout the body, instructing them to repair degenerated or injured tissue.
Why are Exosomes an Important Part of Regenerative Medicine?
Exosomal therapy is applied to a range of ailments:
- Poor healing
- Chronic pain/joint pain
Exosome treatment uses exosomes from human placenta cells in order to repair older, deteriorated cells.
Here’s how a typical treatment session goes: You relax in the treatment chair.The exosomes are prepared for intravenous injection. The procedure is a slow intravenous injection of the exosomes into a vein. It involves the minimal discomfort of a needle stick. This appointment is completed in-office and you will return home shortly after.
In order to let the exosomes do their work, you will need to not use anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen for a couple weeks.
How Do Exosomes Work?
Exosomes expose your cells to new growth factors. A growth factor is a protein, and it stimulates cells to grow, differentiate, proliferate and heal.
Exosomes are basically a by-product of a stem cell. In your body, exosomes are released from certain cells, and then travel throughout the body carrying messages to other cells. They contain genetic information and prompt cells to behave in certain ways.
In regenerative medicine applications, exosomes are injected into the treatment area. The exosomes most often come from mesenchymal stem cells harvested from human placenta. The cells undergo rigorous testing for safety and purity standards. These young exosomes communicate with the cells in the treatment area, stimulating the healing process and reducing inflammation.
