In his practice, board-certified dermatologist and anti-aging specialist Dr. Jason Emer has long used Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell Therapy to enhance the efficacy of his treatments, improve and accelerate recovery after Hi-Definition Liposuction and body sculpting procedures, and maintain his patients’ youthful appearance. Thanks to recent scientific discoveries and advances in biotechnology, Dr. Emer is now employing stem cell-derived Exosomes as part of his revolutionary anti-aging treatments and aesthetic enhancements.
What are Exosomes?
Exosomes are small, lipid vesicles that transport genetic information and proteins between cells. These bubble-like sacs are released by your cells into the bloodstream, traveling throughout the body and carrying proteins, DNA, and RNA from one cell to another. At one point, we didn’t think much about exosomes and their function in the body. However, scientists have recently discovered that these little messengers play a significant role in the spread of diseases.
We’ve also learned that stem-cell-derived exosomes can be used in various therapeutic applications, regenerative treatments, and a range of aesthetic improvements. Cutting-edge biotechnology companies have been developing cell-free exosomes (derived from the placenta and amniotic fluid) to for these precise purposes.
What are the benefits of Exosomes?
Using a combination of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), stem cells (such as ACell), and exosomes, Dr. Emer is able to promote natural hair growth in patients suffering from genetic hair loss and autoimmune alopecia areata. Additionally, Dr. Emer employs exosomes and stem cell technology to:
- improve the vitality and longevity of autologous fat used in fat grafting procedures
- promote genital rejuvenation (both vaginal rejuvenation and penile rejuvenation)
- enhance sexual drive in both men and women
- treat erectile dysfunction in male patients
- address skin burns and scars
- accelerate and improve recovery after cosmetic procedures such as laser resurfacing and hi-definition liposuction
How does Dr. Emer do it differently?
Healing is a complex science, ever-expanding with the emergence of new, groundbreaking technologies. Dr. Emer remains at the forefront of this industry through his use of Stem Cells, Growth Factors, and Exosomes; IV Infusion Therapy; Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT); Lymphatic Massage Therapy; Photodynamic Light Therapy; Shockwave Therapy; Anti-Aging Laser Therapy; and Regenerative Skin Care Treatments, all intended to reverse the signs of aging and utilize the body’s innate ability to heal and rejuvenate naturally.
Accounting for your age, body type, medical history, and overall health, Dr. Emer and our esteemed aestheticians can develop a customized regenerative plan that accelerates healing, both pre- and post-treatment, through a combination of state-of-the-art therapies.
Exosomes for Hair Loss
Dr. Emer has been performing hair growth and hair transplant treatments for over a decade. After creating a proprietary solution with growth factors (PRP), exosomes, and pig bladder stem cells (ACell), Dr. Emer injects this proprietary solution directly into the scalp or any areas where hair loss is visible; the products then fertilize the hair follicles and promote stronger, thicker hair growth.
Dr. Emer complements this treatment with skin care products such as:
- RestorSea Revitalizing Scalp Treatment (right), a spray-on product that reduces inflammation and gently removes dead skin cells that accumulate in and around the hair follicle, giving you a healthier scalp and thicker, shinier looking hair
- AnteAGE MD Hair Microneedling Solution, the most scientifically advanced product of its type, which should be rolled into the scalp with a 0.5mm dermaroller once per week
- Viviscal Professional, a 100% drug free, clinically proven, daily hair growth supplement for fuller and thicker hair
To improve the thinning or receding hairline, Dr. Emer also encourages his patients to use Latisse (specifically designed to create fuller lashes) to promote regrowth in the frontal part of the hair.
How long do hair loss improvements last?
Like most non-surgical aesthetic improvements, regular treatments are needed in order to maintain your results. For the potential for slowing down the hair-loss processo or more substantial hair regrowth and maintenance, patients typically require a series of 3 to 6 treatments every 4 to 6 weeks. Once improvement or lack of shed is noted, Dr. Emer recommends quarterly maintenance treatments every 3 to 4 months.
Is it painful?
While the pain level varies depending on the individual and the area of treatment, the injection sensation is similar to a bee sting. While Dr. Emer once employed nerve blocks, topical creams, and cold air to reduce discomfort, these techniques often caused more swelling and irritation. Pain is very minimal for each treatment.
What is the downtime?
There is little to no downtime for this treatment. The injections often produce minimal bleeding in the treatment area, which resolves within a few hours.
