Acne and Exosomes

Acne can be debilitating, affecting not only our physical appearance but also our psychological well-being. While there are numerous ways to treat acne, ranging from topical treatments to oral antibiotics, there are instances when these approaches fall short in achieving effective control.

The root causes of acne are multifaceted. Ordinarily, our skin produces sebum to moisturize itself, yet an excess of sebum can lead to clogged pores, resulting in inflammation and the formation of pustules. Hormonal fluctuations also contribute to the development of acne.

In the realm of acne treatment, ongoing research is exploring the potential of exosomes. What exactly are exosomes? In simple terms, exosomes are extracellular vesicles containing growth factors and peptides that facilitate cell-to-cell communication for repair processes. When applied topically, they help regulate sebum production, reduce inflammation, leading to diminished redness, and balance the skin's microbiome, crucial for maintaining a stable skin environment.

However, with a plethora of exosome products available, how do you determine the right choice? Research suggests that Wharton's jelly contains one of the purest forms of exosomes. Obtained from newborn babies, it undergoes a stringent screening process before purification in a laboratory and subsequent storage for use. At Fifth Avenue Aesthetics, our board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Hayag, has formulated a serum and cream infused with Wharton's Jelly exosomes.

To seamlessly integrate this into your skincare routine, apply the FabRx exo serum during the day before your sunscreen, and use the FabRx exo cream at night, as nighttime calls for enhanced hydration. By doing so, you can significantly reduce inflammation, benefiting not only acne but also addressing hyperpigmentation resulting from post-acne marks and even showcasing anti-aging properties.
