Do you struggle with pain that stems from the aging process, an injury, or chronic pain? Are you tired of taking prescription medications to treat your symptoms because they only mask the pain? At Optimal Health and Wellness located in Pasadena, CA, we are proud to offer exosome treatment. This treatment provides those struggling with various medical issues to heal naturally and improve their overall state of health following their treatment.
Everything begins at a cellular level, which is why addressing injuries, medical conditions, and even the signs of aging at a cellular level have proven to be very effective. But, is there a product for that? Can you buy it in a bottle? Maybe someday, but for now there is an effective treatment called exosome therapy that does just that.
How Long Does It Take Exosome Treatment To Work?
Any treatment that stimulates the body and activates its natural healing processes is very effective and produces powerful, natural results, but also takes time. You will feel a difference and your condition will improve, but it will take time for the body to work. Once you begin this treatment, you most likely will experience results within three months of your initial treatment. After your first treatment, your cells will begin the reprogramming process.
While you may feel some initial relief from your condition or pain immediately following treatment, the reprogramming process where the exosomes deliver healing instructions and messages to your existing cells can take anywhere from six to ten weeks to complete. During or shortly after this time, you will feel the full results of your treatment and will notice a difference in your symptoms, chronic pain, or health condition.
How Long Do the Effects Last?
It may require some initial patience on your part as you wait to experience your treatment results, but once those results kick in, you will realize the process and the wait were well worth it. Once you begin to experience your full results, they will be long-lasting. Your results may last anywhere from six to eight months.
What Is Exosome Treatment?
If a discussion about cells brings you back to high school biology class, don’t worry, you won’t be tested on this information. When put into laymen’s terms, exosomes are easy to understand. This treatment is a form of regenerative medicine that uses communicative cell molecules to instruct your existing cells to heal. Exosomes are not cells in and of themselves, but they can communicate with your cells to accomplish the healing process.
What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine is a natural form of medicine that has been increasing in popularity due to its ability to heal, repair, and regenerate certain tissues in the body that have been damaged as a result of specific injuries and the aging process. This treatment is one of the various treatments used within this field to rapidly heal and repair the body. Different forms of regenerative medicine can heal and repair different injuries within the body including:
- Damaged cartilage
- Bone-related injuries
- Tendons tears and injuries
- Ligament damage and injuries
- Other musculoskeletal injuries
- The signs of aging that occur in the body
How Does Exosome Treatment Differ From Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy and exosome therapy have some similarities, but they are not the same treatments for many reasons. Both of these treatments are forms of regenerative medicine, but exosomes perform a far more specialized and advanced role than stem cell therapy. Both treatments are used to heal and rejuvenate the body quickly, but exosomes carry signals within their makeup that tell the cells in the body what they need to do.
What Are Exosomes?
Exosomes aren’t cells, but instead are groupings of cell molecules that are taken from stem cells, specifically from the outside of them. They are made up of different proteins, growth factors, mRNA, and RNA. They are tiny fluid-filled sacs, and their tiny size allows them to fill in the spaces that cells cannot.
Also known as messenger RNA, mRNA holds all of the instructions within it for making and building proteins, and can also stimulate the body’s ability to repair and heal. RNA is a nucleic acid, as is DNA but RNA only contains a single strand while DNA contains two.
What Do They Treat?
There are many different aspects in the world around us as well as the diseases and disorders that can develop within us that cause problems among the cells. These things interfere with the cell’s ability to communicate with each other, which essentially limits and even disables their ability to promote healing within the body. The introduction of younger exosomes harvested from stem cells changes everything.
Imagine the cells in your body that have been affected by aging or a chronic ailment or disease of some sort. They seem lethargic, uncommunicative, and seem to be floating around the body, unable to perform at work. Then, imagine your body “hires” some new, fresh messengers to do what your cells are unable to. That’s what happens during exosome treatment. These younger messengers enter the body and do what your existing cells cannot.
Treating Age-Related Symptoms and Diseases
Exosomes can be used to treat injuries and health conditions, as well as the signs of aging as they affect different areas of the body. This treatment can send important healing messages to your cells that are affected by:
- Environmental factors
- Genetic disorders
- Chronic diseases
- Lyme disease
- Autoimmune disorders
- Chronic inflammation
- Age-related symptoms and conditions
- Lung disease
- Tissue problems
- Sexual health disorders
- Immune problems
- Hair loss
What Happens During Treatment?
Before your treatment, exosomes will be harvested from specific stem cells and then stored for use. During the harvesting process, exosomes are taken from the outer portion of stem cells and are then stored in saline and frozen until they are needed for use. Before your treatment, they will be thawed and ready to deliver all of their regenerative and healing properties so that you can find relief from your pain, the signs of aging, and chronic conditions.
How Are Exosomes Administered?
When exosomes are prepared for treatment, they are prepared in a highly concentrated form to produce optimal results. It is crucial for your results and the overall outcome of your treatment that exosomes are delivered directly into your body at the right location at the right time. There are two primary ways that this treatment is administered to patients.
First, it can be administered through an IV so that they enter directly into the bloodstream and affect the cells so that optimal intercellular communication can occur. Secondly, they can be delivered through an injectable form. In cases where joint pain or dysfunction is the primary symptom, exosomes are directly injected into the joint to heal and repair it.
Exosomes for Anti-Aging
Many treatments in the beauty world can temporarily treat the signs of aging, yet not all of these treatments are natural. Some rely on the powers of the body to release anti-aging effects, yet exosome treatment can take anti-aging to the next level. Similar to PRP treatments, exosomes can be administered to the skin to help regenerate new cells and help the skin.
There are now exosome facials and facelifts that can naturally improve the appearance of the skin. Estheticians inject exosomes directly into the skin typically after a treatment like microneedling, which creates micro-injuries into the skin so that the exosomes can be readily absorbed. Such treatments have proven to be an effective way to:
- Improve skin texture and tone
- Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
- Improve the appearance of pigment issues such as hyperpigmentation, sunspots, and age spots
- Shape and contour the face
Is It Safe?
Alternative treatments that use the powers within the body to heal the body are growing in popularity for their effectiveness and their ability to provide long-term results that patients have been unable to experience while using traditional treatments. This treatment is a safe and effective way to heal and improve the overall state of the body. It has helped many people finally experience relief and rejuvenation.
Exosomes are not foreign to your body. You aren’t putting foreign substances into your body. You won’t be stripping your gut of beneficial bacteria as is often the case with the introduction of prescription or pain medications to the body. The body knows exactly what to do with exosomes and how to use them, so you can rest assured that when you undergo treatment, your body will step in and complete the necessary steps required for your healing and your results.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
When you begin this treatment, you must have realistic expectations and understand that every patient has different needs and will require a different treatment plan to meet their goals and achieve the most optimal outcome. Typically, a series of regular treatments are necessary for the best results. Regular treatments can help you resolve your symptoms, lead to pain relief, and help you maintain your treatment goals.
Each patient will experience a treatment plan that is unique to their goals and their specific symptoms. During your initial consultation, we will review your health history, evaluate your symptoms, and develop a treatment plan that will meet your specific needs.
