Improving Cosmetic Treatments

In the world of cosmetic treatments, there are constant advancements and new discoveries that can be used to improve our skin and the results of cosmetic treatments. Currently, the newest topic of interest is exosomes. Exosomes are vesicles that are secreted by our cells, and are emerging as potential game-changers in the field of aesthetics. Its extraordinary wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties are revolutionary when it comes to post-procedural care.

The Power of Exosomes

Exosomes are naturally occurring vesicles that play a crucial role in cell-to-cell communication. They carry bioactive molecules such as growth factors, antioxidants, and nucleic acids, which influence neighboring cells and regulate various cellular processes. This “cellular cargo” can vary based on the parent cell from which the exosome originated and this cellular cargo is what acts on the target cells. We can now change and customize the cargo to include only the molecules we want, making exosomes a revolutionary drug delivery system. In aesthetics, topically applied exosomes carry various molecules that play a role in collagen synthesis and remodeling to reduce scar formation, accelerate healing, decrease inflammation, pigmentation,  and redness, etc., all of which amplify the results of cosmetic treatments.



Injectable cosmetic treatments, such as dermal fillers and neurotoxins, have long been popular for their ability to smooth wrinkles and restore facial volume. When exosomes are topically applied with injectables, they can contribute to improved collagen production and tissue regeneration. Exosomes contain growth factors and signaling molecules that stimulate fibroblasts, the cells responsible for producing collagen. The growth factors and peptides in the exosomes improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while also improving the tone and texture of your skin. Applying a concentrated in-office exosome product right after receiving injectables can minimize swelling and bruising, and decrease healing time as well. Additionally, Dr. Hayag recommends using an at-home skincare product in conjunction with neurotoxin and filler treatments for optimal results. The FABrx Renew Exo3 Cream and FABrx Renew Exo3 Serum are great exosome skincare products to incorporate into your daily routine. Each product contains an abundant amount of exosomes that will elevate the results of your injectables. 


Ablative and non-ablative lasers are commonly used for skin resurfacing, addressing issues like wrinkles, scars, and hyperpigmentation. Exosomes can be seen as natural enhancers for these treatments, as they aid in reducing oxidative stress and promoting cellular regeneration. By applying exosomes post-laser treatment, practitioners can potentially improve overall healing, reduce downtime, and enhance the final aesthetic outcomes.

  • Vivace Ultra

The Vivace Ultra laser is a cutting-edge microneedling device that combines radiofrequency (RF) energy with microneedling. When exosomes are introduced into the equation, the results can be truly transformative. Exosomes support collagen production, a key component of skin elasticity and firmness. By delivering exosomes post-Vivace treatment, collagen remodeling is accelerated which enhances skin texture, resulting in a firmer and more youthful appearance. Exosomes' ability to modulate inflammation and enhance tissue regeneration also reduce downtime and improved overall results. 

  • Fraxel and Clear and Brilliant:

The Fraxel laser is known for its ability to address pigmentation, fine lines, scars, and sun damage. The Fraxel non-ablative laser delivers energy into the skin to stimulate collagen production and remove pigmentation from the top layer resulting in an overall improvement in skin tone, texture, and pigmentation. Applying exosomes immediately after a Fraxel treatment followed up with a daily exosome skincare product can take these results a step further.  Exosomes signal to expedite the cell turnover rate, revealing smoother, healthier, and more evenly toned skin. The Fraxel is also originally notorious for the downtime after the treatment, around 7-10 days and the immediate redness and sunburn feeling after the treatment. Exosomes help reduce redness and inflammation, and expedite the healing process after Fraxel treatment, decreasing recovery time improving the final result.

The Clear and Brilliant laser targets early signs of aging and sun damage by stimulating collagen production and promoting cellular turnover. It is a more suitable option for patients who would like to address signs of aging early on but are not quite ready for the Fraxel yet. Similar to the Fraxel, the use of exosomes amplifies effects by minimizing redness and discomfort, ultimately contributing to a quicker recovery and a glowing complexion.

  • Tixel

The Tixel is an innovative treatment that delivers heat to enhance skin texture such as crepiness, sagging, fine lines, and wrinkles. It is technically not a laser, as it uses heat energy to induce collagen production and tighten. Popular treatment areas include the upper lip lines, droopy eyelids, cheek lines, and crow’s feet. When combined with exosomes, Tixel treatments become even more effective. Exosomes' ability to decrease inflammation helps soothe the skin immediately post-Tixel, reducing redness, swelling and promoting faster healing. Moreover, exosomes may support collagen synthesis, maximizing the smoothing and tightening effects of Tixel.

The combination of exosomes and in-office cosmetic treatments produce promising results in aesthetic dermatology. As research and clinical studies continue to unfold, it is becoming increasingly evident that exosomes have the potential to revolutionize the way we approach various cosmetic procedures. Whether it's injectables or laser procedures, the collaboration between exosomes and these treatments holds the promise of elevating results, minimizing downtime, and ultimately providing patients with more satisfying and transformative experiences. Not only are exosomes revolutionizing treatments, they are also becoming increasingly popular as an all-rounder skincare ingredient. Daily use of an exosome product such as the FABrx Renew Exo3 Cream or FABrx Renew Exo3 Serum helps address uneven skin and elevate the results of all your cosmetic treatments and other skincare products as well.
