Everything You Need to Know About Exosome Facials

The word exosomes may sound like a term you will find in an advanced mathematical equation or textbook, but they are, in fact, nanoparticles used in exosome facials to rejuvenate your skin and rock your world!

Let’s have a quick look at the definition, the science and the benefits these superheroes and super facials offer, and why they have gained all this considerable attention.

What Are Exosomes And Where Do They Come From?

In layman’s terms, exosomes are teensy-weensy-tiny particles secreted by our cells (including skin cells), animal cells and plant cells. They are so teeny-tiny, they measure about 30 – 150 nanometres. To put it into perspective, 1 nanometer is 1 billionth of a metre, and a sheet of paper is about 100,000 nanometers thick.

As the famous saying goes, dynamite comes in small packages, and these minuscule exosomes are no exception. They are packed with various biomolecules such as proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids and play a pivotal role in cellular communication, regulating processes like cell growth, differentiation, and regeneration. Meaning exosomes do wonders for your skin!

The Science Behind Exosome Facials

Exosomes serve as messengers, shuttling important information between cells and influencing cellular activities like cell growth, differentiation, and regeneration (as mentioned above). Therefore, it should come as no surprise exosome facials take full advantage of exosomes’ regenerative superpowers to promote collagen production and skin rejuvenation and regeneration.

But how does it work? During an exosome facial, exosomes are applied through gentle massaging of the skin, microneedling, microchanneling or mesotherapy. This targeted approach ensures your skin receives the most from these powerful nanoparticles. However, where do the exosomes used in your exosome facials come from? Some are derived from humans, some are derived from fish, and some are derived from plants. Therefore, you must talk to your dermatologist/aestheticians beforehand to prevent unwanted surprises from creeping up.

Benefits Of Exosome Facials

Exosome facials offer a multitude of benefits for your skin and hair. They aid in tissue repair, help refine your skin’s texture, reduce fine lines, wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, and age spots, and enhance your skin’s complexion and glow. Exosome facials also help decrease redness, inflammation, and skin irritation associated with Dermatitis, Rosacea, Psoriasis, and other inflammatory conditions.


According to a well-known aesthetic clinic in Surrey, “Exosome facials are hailed as the future of facial treatments”, and we now see why. Exosome facials are quick, non-invasive, and work. Here is what to expect from your procedure:

During Your Procedure

The procedure typically begins with cleansing the skin to remove any impurities and prepare it for treatment. The exosome solution is then applied to the face using gentle massage techniques or specialised devices such as microneedling, microchanneling or mesotherapy, which aid in enhancing absorption.

Depending on the specific protocol and desired outcomes, additional serums may be applied to complement your exosome treatment. All in all the duration of an exosome facial session typically spans between 15 to 30 minutes.

After Your Procedure

You can expect your skin to be slightly red after your procedure for about 2 days, but other than that there is zero downtime! This means you can return to work and resume your daily activities without any interruption.

Suitability And Safety

Exosome facials are suitable for individuals of all skin types, including those with sensitive skin. Furthermore, exosome facials are non-invasive, making them a safe option for those seeking skin rejuvenation without the risks associated with surgical procedures or harsh chemicals.


However, as with any cosmetic treatment, it is essential to consult with your dermatologist/aesthetician to be 100% sure whether exosome facials are for you, as well as to address any other concerns you may have.

Results And Maintenance

The results of exosome facials are typically gradual and cumulative, with noticeable improvements in skin texture, tone, and elasticity becoming more apparent over time.

While some individuals may experience immediate benefits following a single treatment, optimal results are often achieved with a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart.

The full effect will kick in about 6 to 8 weeks post-treatment and the results of your exosome facial/s can last anywhere from 6 to 24 months.

To Sum It Up

Exosome facials represent a groundbreaking advancement in skincare, offering a safe and effective solution for promoting skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing benefits. By harnessing the regenerative power of exosomes, these treatments target the underlying causes of skin ageing and damage, resulting in a more youthful and radiant complexion.

Whether you are looking to address fine lines and wrinkles, improve your skin texture, or enhance overall skin health, there is no denying that a non-surgical solution backed by science is a great way to go!
