If you’ve ever wished you could turn back the clock on aging and damaged skin, regenerative treatment options now make that possible. Regenerative medicine is a rapidly growing field which holds tremendous promise for correcting and even reversing numerous conditions associated with the natural human aging process. Regenerative aesthetics, specifically, focuses on the visible signs of aging. These treatments work to encourage cellular regeneration, promoting a younger appearance on a molecular level. At Derma Dolce, we know that aging is out of your control, but we also believe that how you handle it is not. Today, we discuss how regenerative aesthetics can bring back the skin of your youth.


Skin Pen Microneedling Promotes Collagen Production

Microneedling has gained tremendous popularity among the skin-obsessed the world over. Why? Because it works extremely well to promote new collagen production in aging and damaged skin. Also referred to as “collagen induction therapy,” microneedling works by creating tiny, controlled injuries in the upper layers of your skin. To heal itself, your skin responds by creating new, collagen-rich tissue to repair and smooth over the existing tiny injuries.


As the most abundant protein in human skin, collagen is responsible for the hydration, structure, elasticity, and strength of your facial skin. As you age, your body’s production of this critical protein naturally slows, often leaving you with damaged, wrinkled, dull-looking skin. As we promote new collagen production, however, cell turnover increases, returning strength, elasticity, and hydration to aging and dull facial tissue.


Platelet-Rich Plasma Promotes Deep Regeneration

While many anti-aging products and treatments promote more youthful looking skin, regenerative aesthetics actually focus on regenerating skin cells. Through this process, we are able to stimulate your body’s creation of new skin, seemingly turning back the clock on the visible signs of aging. If you’ve ever heard mention of the viral Kardashian “vampire facial,” this is it.


Platelet-rich plasma, commonly referred to as PRP, is a highly concentrated mixture of your body’s autologous platelets and plasma, the liquid portion of your blood. For decades, we’ve known the incredible reparative properties of blood platelets, but only recently have we begun to isolate and utilize them for therapeutic purposes.


Throughout your body, platelets work to release growth factors and other important proteins which tell your body to repair and create new cells. When you cut yourself, you see this process at work as your injury heals. The premise behind PRP facials is essentially the same. First, we create a controlled injury in your dermal tissue using Skin Pen microneedling. We then introduce concentrated PRP to stimulate healing and cellular regeneration. And if you really want to stimulate deep cellular renewal, exosomes, derived from the body’s stem cells, are potentially even more effective.


Exosomes For Powerful Anti-Aging Benefits

While PRP facials have been around for a few years now, a newer treatment, the exosome facial, may prove even more beneficial. Exosomes, also known as extracellular vesicles, are derived from the body’s stem cells. If you’re not familiar with stem cells, these cells are essentially the building blocks that form every tissue within the human body.


Because exosomes are extracellular vesicles, they are responsible for transferring important cellular information throughout the body. Exosomes contain mRNA and critical proteins required for cellular growth and renewal; essentially, these tiny vesicles contain a cellular “blueprint.” This “blueprint” works to stimulate and manage the cellular renewal process.


Like a PRP facial, an exosome facial follows the same general protocol: create a controlled skin injury, and then introduce potent healing agents to stimulate cellular regeneration. First, we use microneedling to create superficial holes in the upper layer of your skin. Next, we inject exosomes to stimulate and guide the repair and renewal process.


A Natural Approach to Anti-Aging Skincare

While these procedures may sound like something straight out of a science fiction movie, they’re one of the most natural methods available to stimulate deep cellular renewal. Because we utilize cellular components taken from the human body, no harsh chemicals are involved. Essentially, we harness the healing capabilities of your own body to promote and accelerate regeneration of new tissue. If you’ve been searching for a more natural anti-aging skincare treatment, exosome and PRP facials are both excellent options. Not only are these treatments a more natural approach, but because they are minimally invasive, they do not require any downtime, either. Sounds like a win-win!
