Exosome Therapy

EXOSOME THERAPY

Exosome Therapy helps to promote cellular regeneration and
to restore tissue function that may otherwise be impossible to attain.

Our team at Sylvana Medical & Aesthetic Center offers our patients industry leading treatment options, utilizing innovative techniques and the latest medical technology in order to stimulate your body ’s own natural healing ability. One of the key components of functional and regenerative medicine is the use of exosomes.

Exosomes are nanometer-sized membrane sacs, or vesicles, that are released and received by nearly all cells in the body. These tiny messengers are found naturally throughout the body, floating like bubbles between cells. Think of them as power couriers, pinging from one cell to cell, delivering "mail" in the form of molecules, improving communication, keeping the calm and ensuring operations stay in sync. Each exosome is encoded with unique data and other good stuff. When an exosome encounters another cell, the cell uploads a status update, along with a nutrient payload and instructions for mimicking the happy cell that started it all. Millions of these tiny bubbles are racing through your bloodstream right now.

Exosomes:

  • Contain anti-inflammatory properties which aid in healing
  • Offer anti-fibrotic characteristics which can reduce the amount of scarring during wound repair.
  • Support regeneration through various molecular actions
  • Help regulate the immune system during rejuvenation
  • Promote regeneration of tissues and cells

As research continues, exosomes are rapidly gaining momentum as a new and easier strategy for cellular regeneration and offer the greatest hope for those suffering from degenerative disease, pain and injury and looking for methods to improve their quality of life.

Exosome Basics

Exosomes are small membrane vesicles secreted by most cell types. These internal vesicles are released as exosomes which can travel to distant tissues and influence various aspects of cell behavior and physiology.

From Formation to Target

  • Internal vesicles form by the inward budding of different cellular compartments.
  • These internal vesicles are released as exosomes when fused with the cell membrane.
  • Alternatively, they can fuse with lysomes which degrades their contents.
  • When they reach their destination, exosomes can enter target cells in one of two ways; by being taken up the target cell's pathway, or
  • by fusing to the target cell's membrane and and releasing it's content directly into the cytoplasm of the cell.
  • Cells also secrete other vesicles which bud directly from the cell's plasma membrane.

Tracking Messages

Unique protein and carbohydrate molecules on the surface of exosomes allow them to traffic in the body and be taken up efficiently by cells.

Delivering Instructions

Upon delivery, the exosome’s cargo can change the biological function of the recipient cell according to the instructions encoded by the payload.

Specific Targets 

Exosomes do not randomly distribute, but rather appear to seek specific cellular targets. Directing their path to precise cells creates the powerful potential to deliver diverse therapies to intended targets, modulating cellular function to achieve therapeutic benefit.
