Exosomes vs Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Oct 25, 2023

For years, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used in aesthetic medicine to speed the healing process and enhance results following various aesthetic treatments. But what if we could provide clients with even better results and even shorter downtime without the need for uncomfortable blood draws? Exosomes – tiny nano-particles that carry essential proteins and nutrients from one cell to another – are quickly revolutionizing the aesthetic industry, and for good reason. 

First things first, let’s talk about the process. While PRP requires blood to be drawn from the patient and spun down to produce plasma, exosomes do not require painful poking or uncomfortable waiting. Topical exosome serums can be applied straight from the vial before and after aesthetic treatments. No blood draws and no wait. Plus, patients treated with exosomes have been shown to have much shorter downtime after treatment when compared to PRP, meaning your client can get back to a normal routine in no time. 

Now let’s talk about growth factors. Both exosomes and PRP contain growth factors that can stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. However, exosomes have been found to have a much higher concentration of beneficial growth factors compared to PRP. This means that when it comes to promoting skin health and rejuvenation, exosomes may offer more potent results.

Another advantage of exosomes is their versatility. While PRP is mainly used for facial rejuvenation, exosome treatments can be used for a wide range of aesthetic concerns like hair loss. Exosomes are a valuable tool when incorporated into hair restoration protocols, yielding more improved and enhanced results.  

In conclusion, exosomes offer exciting possibilities for aestheticians looking to provide cutting-edge treatments for their clients. Exosome treatments may offer reduced downtime and higher concentrations of growth factors. By understanding the key differences between exosomes and PRP, it’s no wonder why exosomes are taking over the aesthetic space!
