  • Unveiling Common Skincare Mistakes

    Taking care of our skin is essential for maintaining a healthy and achieving radiant complexion. Unfortunately, even with the best intensions, many people unknowingly commit common skincare mistakes that can hinder their progress. In this blog, we will explore some of these mistakes and provide helpful tips to help you avoid them. By rectifying these errors, you can unlock the true potential of your skincare routine and attain skin that is not only healthier, but also more beautiful skin. 1. Sleeping with makeup on One of the most harmful skincare mistakes people make is going to bed without properly removing their makeup. When makeup is left on overnight, it can clog the pores, leading to breakouts, congestion and a lackluster complexion. Properly cleansing your face before bedtime should be a non-negotiable part of your skincare routine. By removing all traces of makeup, you allow your skin to “breathe” and repair itself while you sleep. 2. Over cleansing This is a common mistake, particularly among individuals with oily skin. Contrary to what might be expected, excessive cleansing can actually trigger your skin to produce more oil. This occurs because the natural oils are constantly being washed away, causing skin to compensate by overproducing sebum. Surprisingly, water can also affect your skin’s pH balance and cause irritation. Your skin’s pH is supposed to be slightly acidic, which average is below 5. Water, on the other hand, is alkaline, meaning that splashing your face with water multiple times per day could be ruining your skin. Imbalanced skin pH can disrupt the protective barrier, leading to dry patches, redness and aged skin and triggers inflammatory skin diseases like rosacea, acne and eczema. Cleansing your face twice a day is generally sufficient. 3. Over exfoliation Exfoliating is an excellent way to slough off dead skin cells and reveal a fresh complexion as dead skin cells is the main culprit in causing dull-looking skin. There are two types of exfoliation, chemical exfoliation and mechanical exfoliation. Chemical exfoliation involves the use of acids like AHA (Alpha Hydroxy Acid) and BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) to dissolve and remove dead skin cells. Mechanical exfoliation involves tools such as brushes or sponges, or scrubs to physically remove dead skin cells. However, over exfoliating can damage the skin’s natural barrier and cause increased sensitivity. To prevent this, especially if you have sensitive skin, it is important to steer clear of harsh scrubs or excessive exfoliation frequency. Instead, opt for gentle exfoliants and limit it to 2 to 3 times per week. What is skin barrier? Your skin serves a vital role in protecting against infections, irritants, and molecules that can trigger skin allergies. The outermost layer of your skin, known as the stratum corneum acts as the first line of defense. However, various factors can disrupt the skin’s barrier function, including conditions like atopic dermatitis (eczema), acne, rosacea, as well as self- inflicted cause like over-exfoliation. Indications of a compromised skin barrier include dryness and flakiness, accompanied by itchiness, pain, and a rough texture. Such damage can also lead to breakouts and inflamed red skin. Genetic defects partially contribute to conditions like rosacea and eczema, and further harm to the skin barrier can trigger exacerbations of these conditions. How to repair broken skin barrier? First of all, stop ALL your skincare products, including sunscreen for a few days and all your actives like retinol, retinoids, AHA, BHA, Vitamin C as well as harsh cleansers or scrubs. Generally, skin barrier function can be restored in 2 to 5 days, although it may take longer for individuals with conditions like rosacea or dermatitis. There are several beneficial ingredients for improving barrier function. This includes hyaluronic acid, ceramides, squalene, niacinamide, tocopherol and linoleic acid. Once barrier function is reestablished, it is recommended to introduce niacinamide as the first skincare active. 4. Skipping sunscreen or not enough sunscreen: Neglecting to apply sunscreen daily is a grave mistake. Sun damage is a leading cause of many problems like premature aging, dark spots, and even skin cancer. It is important to protect your skin by consistently wearing sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30, regardless of whether it is a sunny or cloudy days. Consider it a non-negotiable part of your skincare routine. If you are too lazy for skincare, at least put on your sunscreen. It is particularly important to apply sunscreen if your skincare routine includes ingredients like retinol, AHA, BHA and Benzoyl Peroxide in your skincare routine, as these ingredients can increase sensitivity to sun. Ensuring adequate sunscreen application is just as important as using sunscreen itself. Ideally, a quantity of 3 to 5ml is recommended for optimal coverage, and don’t forget to reapply every 2 to 4 hours. If you use less than the recommended amount, you are reducing the effectiveness of SPF by half. So, are you applying enough? 5. Using the wrong products for your skin type: One common mistake I often notice among my clients is choosing skincare products without considering the ingredients and their respective effects. Some individuals incorporate multiple active ingredients into a single routine and ended up with broken skin barrier, while some with oily skin use too much moisturising products or heavy formulations, leading to clogged pores and acne. Using skincare products that are not suitable for your skin type can be counterproductive. For instance, applying heavy, oil-based products on oily skin can congest the pores and lead to breakouts. It is important to determine your skin type (dry, oily, combination, sensitive) and select products specifically formulated to address your needs. If your concern is hyperpigmentation, opt for products that target pigments instead. There are various skin lightening agents available, including vitamin C, niacinamide, arbutin, kojic acid, licorice extract, cysteamine, tranexamic acid, retinol, retinoids, azelaic acid, glycolic acid and more. 6. Overloading your skin with products: If you are interested in skincare, you have probably come across the popular Korean 10-steps skincare routine: Step 1: Makeup removal & oil cleansing Step 2: Water based cleansing Step 3: Exfoliator Step 4: Toner Step 5: Essence Step 6: Serum Step 7: Sheet masks Step 8: Eye cream Step 9: Moisturiser Step 10: Sunscreen or night cream While it is important to have a consistent skincare routine, you should avoid overloading your skin with too many products at once. Applying excessive number of products simultaneously can possibly overload your skin, result in irritation and potentially worsen the condition of your skin. If your skin can tolerate all these products and shows improvement, good for you! 7. Not allowing enough time: Another common skincare mistake is being inconsistent with your skincare routine and giving up too quickly. Many people make the mistake of discontinuing product usage when they don’t see immediate improvement. It is natural to desire instant results, but skincare requires time and patience, as the effectiveness of different ingredients varies. It is recommended to allow at least 4 to 8 weeks for a new product to show its effects, with optimal results often observed around the 3-month mark. Here are some examples of ingredients and the durations typically needed before visible results: - Retinol: 10-16 weeks - Vitamin C: 5-8 weeks - Glycolic acid: 4-6 weeks - Salicylic acid: 4-6 weeks - Azelaic acid: 3-4 weeks Ingredients that inhibit pigmentation like Vitamin C, arbutin, licorice extract work by suppressing pigment production. Results from these ingredients often become noticeable 6 to 8 weeks after starting topical application. Exfoliants like AHAs and BHAs work relatively faster as they increase cell turnover rate in the upper layers of the skin. Retinol and retinoids require more time as they influence DNA expression. Therefore, patience is the key when incorporating these ingredients into your skincare routine. Establish a routine and commit to it. 8. Layering skincare in incorrect order: You might be wondering “Why is getting the order correct so important?”. This is because the order of your application impacts the penetration and efficacy of skincare actives. Applying water-based products after oil based ones, for example, can hinder the penetration of the former and hence compromise their effectiveness. To achieve optimal results, it is important to follow the correct order of application. Begin with the thinnest consistency and move towards thicker and heavier products. For example, start with toners and serums, followed by lotions, creams and finally oils. This sequence allows for better absorption and utilization of the skincare products. 9. Using your skincare wrongly: Some clients express concerns about using retinol due to its potential for skin irritation. When first incorporating retinol into your skincare routine, your skin is getting used to the effects of retinol, and may develop a bit of irritant dermatitis. It typically manifests as redness and multiple small bumps in the skin that occurs around follicles. These can create rough, uneven skin texture, resembling the appearance of sandpaper. The affected areas may feel sore, dry and exhibit peeling. Sensitive sites such as around the mouth and eyes are more prone to this reaction. However, there are strategies to minimize the risk. Firstly, you can start with lower concentration, such as retinol 0.5% or retinyl palmitate. Begin by applying every other night and gradually increase the frequency as your skin tolerates, eventually reaching nightly use. Retinol should be applied at PM. After cleansing, allow a few minutes for your skin to fully dry. This is because when your skin is still damp, the retinol can be absorbed more deeply into your skin and might cause irritation. Then, moisturize 20 minutes after. As your skin becomes acclimated to retinol, you can consider progressing to higher concentration like retinol 1%, followed by retinaldehyde, tretinoin or adapalene. Be sure to put on broad-spectrum sunscreen the following morning since retinol can increase skin sensitivity to sunlight. This step will help protect your skin from potential sun damage. By following these guidelines, you can minimize the likelihood of irritation and introduce retinol into your skincare routine effectively. What to do when you have developed retinoid dermatitis? First thing to do is to withhold the retinoid and allow your skin to recover. During this period, it is advisable to switch to gentle cleansers and moisturiser to soothe your skin. You should also avoid using other active ingredients like AHAs and BHAs. It is very important to put on sunscreen regularly as inflamed skin can react unpredictably to sun exposure- often causing mottled hyperpigmentation. Experiencing retinoid dermatitis does not mean you should completely avoid using retinol or retinoid in the future. You can reintroduce them after your skin has healed, but make sure to follow the measures mentioned above to minimise the risk of skin irritation. 10. Picking and popping pimples: It can be tempting to squeeze or pick your acne, but this habit can result in scarring, infection and further inflammation. Resist the urge to pop pimples. Instead, focus on treating breakouts with appropriate skincare products, topical medications or seek professional procedural treatments if necessary. Allow your skin the time it needs to heal without popping it. It is also important to refrain from touching your face and to minimize any friction or pressure on your skin, as these actions can trigger a specific form of acne known as acne mechanica. This type of acne breakouts occurs when the skin experiences rubbing, squeezing, or stretching. Common culprits behind acne mechanica include sports equipment, clothing, prolonged sitting or lying down, and resting your face on your pillow or arms while sleeping. 11. Neglecting your neck area: Many individuals prioritise skincare routines for their facial skin but often overlook the equally important care required for the neck and décolletage areas. It is vital to remember that these regions are also subject to sun exposure, similar to the face. Over time, they can also experience ‘wear and tear’, loss of hydration and collagen, and hence the development of wrinkles, fine lines and sagginess. This is precisely why people often say, ‘Your neck reveals your age’. In reality, the skin on your neck is naturally thinner, making it more susceptible to premature aging. Additionally, our modern affection for smartphones and tablets has introduced the ‘tech neck’- formation of horizontal lines on the neck due to repetitive posture of tilting the head downward while using these devices. So, you should extend your skincare regimen to include your neck and décolletage. By giving these areas the attention they deserve, you can ensure a more balanced a youthful appearance. In the quest for healthier, radiant skin, avoiding these common skincare mistakes is a pivotal step. Remember, skincare is not just about following the latest trends or purchasing expensive products; it is about understanding your skin’s unique needs and being consistent with your routine.

  • The Collagen Magic: Your Path to Smooth, Plump, and Youthful Look

    Isn’t it amazing how technology is continuously evolving, all with a singular focus: stimulating collagen. This progress is all aimed at helping us achieve and maintain youthful skin, emphasizing just how crucial collagen is. Why is collagen so important? What is collagen? Collagen is a fundamental structural protein present in various tissues throughout our bodies. It has a presence in our skin, hair, nails, tendons, cartilage, and bones. Together with other essential substances like hyaluronic acid and elastin, collagen plays a pivotal role in preserving the elasticity, volume and hydration of the skin. Furthermore, it contributes to the formation of key proteins such as keratin, which are vital for the constitution of skin, hair and nails. In our skin, most of the collagen is located within the dermis, which is the second layer of skin situated beneath the epidermis. The dermis is not only the primary location of collagen, but also where it is naturally produced. Specialised skin cells known as fibroblasts within the dermis are responsible for the synthesis of collagen. Our bodies have a natural mechanism to produce collagen by utilizing amino acids derived from protein-rich or collagen-rich foods such as bone broth, meat, and fish. However, factors like the aging process, exposure to the sun, smoking and alcohol consumption can all impede the body’s collagen production. We lose between 1 to 1.5% of collagen every year after the age of 20. Hence, in your late 30s to early 40s, you have 75% of your peak collagen levels. This explains why fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin become more apparent as we grow older. Throughout time, people have been exploring various methods to enhance collagen production as a means to maintain youthfulness. Two widely available and frequently considered options are collagen skin care products and oral collagen supplement. However, the question remains: do they deliver on their promises? Collagen skin care? There is no scientific evidence to suggest that applying collagen topically can promote the synthesis or development of collagen within the skin. This is primarily due to the fact that collagen molecules are complex. They are too large to effectively penetrate the outermost layer of your skin, the epidermis. They are even less capable of reaching the dermis, where true skin rejuvenation occurs. While collagen creams may provide a pleasant moisturizing effect and leave your skin feeling soft temporarily, their benefits are limited to the skin’s surface and are not long-lasting. To address the challenge of collagen molecule size, many modern skin care products that promote collagen as a key ingredient typically feature hydrolysed collagen or collagen peptides. Hydrolysed collagen undergoes a process where it is broken down into smaller chains of amino acids known as peptides. Do oral collagen supplements work? The effectiveness of oral collagen supplements is a topic of ongoing research and debate. The idea behind collagen supplements is to provide your body with the building blocks it needs to produce collagen. These supplements typically come in the form of pills, capsules, powders or even drinks. Some studies suggest that oral collagen supplements may have benefits for skin health. They have been associated with increased skin hydration, improved elasticity and a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles in some individuals. However, the results can vary from person to person, and not all studies have shown significant improvements. In other words, there is not enough evidence to suggest that taking collagen supplements will make a difference. Keep in mind that collagen is a large molecule, and our bodies cannot absorb collagen in its whole form. When you consume it orally, it needs to be broken down into peptides so it can be absorbed through your gut and enter the bloodstream. These peptides may be broken down further into the foundational components required for creating proteins like keratin, which help form skin, hair and nails. Alternatively, these peptides may form collagen, which can be deposited in various bodily structures, including cartilage, bone, muscle, or tendons. To date, scientific research has not definitely demonstrated that orally consumed collagen will end up in your skin. Also, there are multiple factors that can influence the effectiveness of collagen supplements including the type of collagen used, the dosage, and the individual’s age and overall health. If your aim is to enhance skin texture, boost elasticity, and reduce wrinkles, your most effective strategies involve prioritizing sun protection and incorporating topical retinoids or retinol into your skin care routine as substantial research has consistently shown the effectiveness of these approaches. Another tip to support collagen production in your body is by eating a balanced diet rich in vitamin C, which is essential for collagen synthesis. Nevertheless, lifestyle and dietary choices may not offer the sustained support required to preserve optimal collagen levels. Besides, the natural aging process can impact fat distribution and bone structure, leading to noticeable changes in your facial aesthetics. This might include a reduction in volume in areas like the cheeks, temples, and forehead, along with the emergence of more pronounced wrinkles and fine lines. Or perhaps, if you have always been concerned about certain facial features and wish to refine or enhance them, why not consider addressing these areas by both enhancing volume and stimulating collagen production at the same time? Biostimulators In the world of non-surgical cosmetic enhancements, we are truly spoiled for choice with a diverse range of injectable treatments. When people discuss dermal fillers, there is often a misconception that all dermal fillers are identical. In fact, these fillers, come in a variety of types, each with its own unique composition. You have probably heard quite a bit about hyaluronic acid fillers, and for good reason. They are a go-to choice for many, and there is significant advantage to them- safe and reversible by hyaluronidase, which is an enzyme that is able to break down hyaluronic acid when needed. Now, let’s get to the exciting part. Beyond hyaluronic acid fillers, there is a whole other category of dermal fillers that don’t just stop at “filling”. They bring a little something extra to the table- rejuvenation. In this blog, we are going to shine a spotlight on Radiesse and Ellansé. Radiesse as Collagen Stimulator While the majority of dermal fillers are composed of hyaluronic acid, Radiesse utilizes a unique ingredient called calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a gel-like solution. The microspheres are similar in composition to minerals found naturally in human bones, rendering it safe for use in cosmetic procedures. What sets Radiesse apart from other ordinary dermal filler is its dual action, combining instant gratification with extended and progressive benefits. It is FDA-approved for its immediate results plus long-term improvement. The process begins with the immediate plumping effect of the filler, providing instant volume to the treated area. CaHA particles integrate into your skin and create a "scaffold" that provides mechanical stimuli, triggering fibroblast to produce collagen and elastin. Over the course of time, the CaHA microspheres gradually break down, while collagen and elastin production continues to increase, replacing the correction provided by the gel carrier. As a result, natural and sustained rejuvenation is achieved with lesser fine lines and renewed skin structure. Radiesse offers flexibility in its application. It can be administered in both undiluted and diluted forms, each serving a distinct purpose. Undiluted Radiesse excels in plumping and smoothing the skin. On the other hand, when employed in a diluted form, its primary role shifts to skin rejuvenation. This means that if you prefer to avoid the pronounced ‘filling’ effect, Radiesse for skin rejuvenation remains a highly viable and sought- after treatment choice. Is it less likely to migrate, cause foreign body reactions, or make your skin inflamed compared to other dermal fillers. Plus, Radiesse is less painful because it has a small amount of lidocaine in it. Here are some of the uses of Radiesse: Smoothing moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds Radiesse is effective in addressing facial wrinkles and deeper folds, including nasolabial folds, the prominent creases that extend from the corner of your nose to the corner of your mouth. Enhancing cheek volume It is a favored choice for augmenting and rejuvenating cheek volume, reinstating youthful contours to the midface. Correcting volume loss in the back of hands Beyond facial applications, Radiesse is uniquely suited for restoring volume loss in the hands, effectively combating the telltale signs of aging on this often- neglected area. Forehead and temples The appearance of aging can be exacerbated by a sunken or hollowed look in the forehead and temples. Radiesse provides a solution by allowing for injections that effectively restore volume in these areas. Forehead fine lines can also be improved due to increased collagen production induced by Radiesse. Jawline contouring Radiesse offers a versatile solution for refining and sculpting the jawline, aiding in achieving a more defined facial profile. Combatting acne scars Atrophic acne scars develop when there is significant destruction of collagen in the dermis caused by inflammation. Radiesse, with its capacity to stimulate collagen production, proves to be a valuable adjunct in the treatment of atrophic acne scars. Neck and décolletage Similarly to the back of hands, Radiesse can be injected to these easily neglected area for rejuvenation. Once administered, it is not dissolvable and provides lasting results, typically spanning a duration of 12 to 18 months, making it a compelling choice for those seeking enduring and natural-looking enhancements. These are the before and after photos of some of our clients: The images displayed above depict the condition of the hand before and after undergoing Radiesse treatment. In the initial photo, you can observe wrinkled skin and noticeable loss of volume, which emphasizes the visibility of veins and tendons. However, in the subsequent photo, taken following a single Radiesse treatment, you can appreciate a significant enhancement in both volume and skin quality of the hand. The after photo undeniably presents a rejuvenated appearance, resembling that of a younger hand. This is the comparison of nasolabial folds before and after Radiesse treatment. It shows noticeable reduction in the prominence of folds. The lady above experienced a loss of volume in her cheek area, accompanied by sagging of superficial fat pad and skin laxity, which contributed to the prominence of her nasolabial fold, marionette lines, and jowling. A combined treatment approach involving Ultherapy and Radiesse synergistically produced a rejuvenating effect, resulting in a more lifted facial appearance with reduced prominence of folds and lines. Ellansé as Collagen stimulator Ellansé is another brand of filler that combines a unique ingredient- polycaprolactone (PCL), a bioresorbable polymer known for its ability to stimulate collagen, with a carboxymethylcellulose (CMC)-based carrier gel. Ellansé delivers immediate results, offering a visible lift and volume to the treated areas while activating body’s collagen production mechanisms. As time progresses, the polycaprolactone microspheres in Ellansé gradually degrade. Yet, what lingers is a rejuvenated and collagen-rich foundation within the skin’s structure. This natural replenishment of collagen is the reason behind Ellansé’s long- lasting results. In terms of longevity, Ellansé S provides result that persists for up to one year, while Ellansé M takes it a step further, offering result up to two years. Now, you might wonder, how does Ellansé differ from Radiesse? Unlike Radiesse, we lack the option to dilute Ellansé to mitigate its plumping effect. In essence, Ellansé behaves much like other dermal fillers, delivering that sought-after plumping action, but with collagen stimulation. To conclude, both Radiesse and Ellansé are dermal filler and biostimulator that offer natural-looking, long-lasting results. If you are looking to rejuvenate your appearance without surgery and enjoy the benefits of increased collagen production, Radiesse and Ellansé could be the solution you have been seeking. However, eventhough Radiesse and Ellansé are versatile treatments, they may not be suitable for every area of the face. We value your individual needs and during your consultation with us, we will carefully assess your facial features to create a tailored plan that best suits you. Many individuals mistakenly believe that biostimulators are solely for older individuals. In fact, even at a young age, you can invest in preserving your collagen because collagen depletion begins as early as the age of 20. Age is just a number, and beauty is timeless. With technology at our disposal, why not embrace and relish its benefits?

  • From Science Fiction to Reality: Exosomes Redefine Anti-Aging and Skin Restoration

    Throughout history, the quest for anti-aging solutions has been a journey spanning generations. People have explored various avenues, from skincare products and supplements to medications and energy-based devices, all in pursuit of maintaining a youthful appearance. Beauty trends, like seasons, evolve and transform. At one point, influenced by social media, the focus was on “augmentation” procedures, such as enhancing lips, cheeks, nose, breasts, and buttocks. However, the current trend has shifted towards embracing a more natural look. There has also been a major paradigm shift from traditional surgical resection of sagging skin to minimally invasive therapies. This change has led to a growing preference for skin rejuvenation treatments over those that alter one’s entire appearance. As a result, more individuals are seeking ways to revitalize their skin and enhance their innate beauty rather than seeking drastic transformations. Now, innovative technologies continue to emerge, offering new hope for achieving youthful and radiant skin. One such groundbreaking advancement is the use of exosomes for skin rejuvenation. But before we go into details, let’s clarify some terms. What are stem cells? Stem cells are unique cells in the body that have the remarkable ability to differentiate into various specialized cell types, such as skin cells, bone marrow cells, nerve cells, red blood cells and muscle cells. They play important role in the natural process of tissue repair and regeneration, giving our bodies the innate ability to heal themselves. What are exosomes? Exosomes are tiny extracellular vesicles, which is the medical term for tiny bubbles that are released from stem cells. They serve as potent messengers in communication between cells. Laden with growth factors, protein, lipids, and genetic material, exosomes play a role in orchestrating various cellular processes, including tissue repair and regeneration. In the context of skin rejuvenation, they are harnessed for their ability to promote collagen and elastin production, reduce inflammation and enhance skin healing. When introduced to the skin, exosomes signal the fibroblasts, and encourage the production of collagen and elastin. Therefore, exosomes are great in diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture. Additionally, they have anti-inflammatory properties, which help to soothe irritated skin, address redness caused by environmental stressors and even improve acnes. Stem cells have become a focus in regenerative medicine for their unique ability to develop into different cell types, their strong influence on the immune system and their ease of manipulation in the lab. However, recent studies have shown that their beneficial effects on healing and tissue repair are not mainly due to their ability to change into other cell types, but rather because of the substances they release. One of these substances is exosomes. Research has found that exosomes alone are responsible for many of the positive effects seen when mesenchymal stem cells are used in experiments. Because of this, scientists are now looking into using exosomes by themselves as a new way to treat various diseases, including those affecting the heart, kidneys, liver, immune system, brain, and even for helping wounds heal on the skin. In aesthetic use, there are some indications where exosomes have proven beneficial: - Rough skin texture - Enlarged pores - Dehydrated skin - Oily skin - Red and sensitive skin - Hyperpigmentation - Scars - Fine lines and wrinkles - Acne - Hair loss Furthermore, due to their skin repair properties, exosomes are often combined with other procedures like laser to help reduce downtime, minimize inflammation, enhance wound healing and minimize scarring post procedure. Ablative lasers also serve as the mode of delivery of exosomes into the skin. PDRN (polydeoxyribonucleotide) As we know, DNA serves as a vital component for skin regeneration and wound healing. Certain products incorporate PDRN, a low molecular weight DNA complex, for the purpose of skin rejuvenation. Clinical studies have demonstrated the properties of PDRN, including anti-inflammatory effects, ability to inhibit pigment formation, stimulate collagen synthesis, and promote angiogenesis (the growth of blood vessels). By enhancing blood vessels formation, PDRN improves blood flow, ultimately accelerating the skin’s healing process. Out of the numerous products currently available, the one I want to highlight here is DuoExoti. DuoExoti DuoExoti is a skin booster formulated with 50 billion exosome particles (containing more than 150 key growth factors, cytokines and proteins) and 1.5% pure salmon DNA (PDRN and PN). The utilization of salmon DNA is driven by its similarity of over 95% to human DNA, rendering it a safe and beneficial ingredient for enhancing the skin’s health and appearance. DuoExoti offers many benefits, including promoting tissue repair, reducing skin inflammation, diminishing hyperpigmentation, boosting collagen synthesis, replenishing skin moisture, and improving skin texture. With this, you can experience a rejuvenated and revitalized complexion, benefiting from the power of exosomes and salmon DNA. It is delivered to the skin either via injection, microneedling, or topical application after ablative laser procedures. Microneedling increases the absorption of the product by creating multiple tiny holes in the skin. Similarly, ablative laser also creates channels that reach the dermal layer of the skin, allowing product to directly reach the dermis when applied to the skin. The dermal layer is specifically targeted in skin treatments because it houses the essential dermal fibroblast, which are key components responsible for collagen production and the regulation of skin physiology. PN or PDRN and exosomes have the remarkable ability to promote growth and activity of these fibroblasts. It becomes evident that administering product directly into this layer yields the maximum benefits for skin rejuvenation and overall skin health. You might be wondering, “What sets exosomes therapy apart from platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?” Platelet rich plasma (PRP) Platelet rich plasma is a volume of plasma that has platelet concentration above baseline. To obtain platelet rich plasma, it involves drawing a small amount of your own blood, which is then centrifuged to separate the plasma enriched with platelets from other components. This PRP is abundant in growth factors, cytokine, and other bioactive proteins that repair and regenerate tissues. PRP has been used widely in medical field as a method of healing injuries or ulcers, and in cosmetic treatment for face and hair. Both PRP therapy and exosome offer effective rejuvenation, harnessing the power of natural tissue-building substances. However, these two approaches differ in essential ways. Exosomes VS PRP PRP relies on the growth factors present in your own blood, while exosomes are sourced from stem cell cultures. Exosomes deliver way more growth factors than PRP does. Exosomes treatment also typically yields visible improvements after just one or two applications, whereas PRP injections may require three to six treatments before achieving noticeable results. Additionally, PRP’s effectiveness may vary among individuals, with age influencing the final outcome. Exosome treatment, on the other hand, consistently delivers excellent results across all age groups. Lastly, PRP is not suitable for individuals with low platelet, platelet dysfunction, liver disease, blood or bone cancer, beta thalassemia major, those on anticoagulant therapy, or those having acute or chronic infection. On the other hand, when it comes to exosome therapy, there are no specific contraindications. This means that there are no absolute restrictions or conditions that would prevent individuals from undergoing exosome therapy. Both treatments offer skin rejuvenation benefits, but exosomes may have additional advantages due to their targeted and potent cell-signaling properties. “Is exosomes skin booster the same as other skin boosters?” While all skin boosters share the goal of biorevitalising the skin, there are notable distinction in their concepts, ingredients, and mechanism of action. The benefits of each can be understood based on the ingredients used. Exosomes, PN and PDRN skin boosters primarily aim at anti-aging benefits. On the other hand, skin boosters containing hyaluronic acid (HA) are focused on delivering deep hydration to the skin, enhancing its moisture levels. Hyaluronic acid is renowned for its exceptional hydrating properties. As a naturally occurring substance in the skin, it has a remarkable ability to attract and retain moisture. Due to its unique molecular structure, hyaluronic acid can hold up to 1000 times its weight in water, making it a powerful humectant. When injected into the skin, it helps to replenish and maintain optimal hydration levels, resulting in plumper, smoother and more radiant skin. Stem cells VS exosomes therapy Stem cells therapy involves directing stem cells to transform into specific cells within the body. Stem cells can be sourced from various places, such as embryos, umbilical cords, and in adult bone marrow and fat. During stem cells treatment for skin, donor stem cells are introduced into the skin through different methods, including topical application, injections, or combining them with other skin rejuvenation procedures like microneedling or laser therapy. Similarly to exosomes, it promotes cell proliferation, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels, addresses signs aging, such as fine lines, wrinkles and skin laxity as it helps replenish and renew the skin’s structure and function. However, unlike stem cell therapy, exosomes therapy does not involve using donor cells in your body. Instead, exosomes are extracted from donated human mesenchymal stem cells and sterilised. As stem cell and exosome treatments have gained popularity, an increasing number of beauty salons now offer these services. I have observed a growing trend on social media and among my clients where the Hyaluron Pen is being utilized as a method of delivering these treatments to the skin. So, what exactly is the Hyaluron Pen? This device has become well-known in the beauty industry and even as a DIY device to administer hyaluronic acid fillers into the skin without the need for traditional needles. It offers a non-invasive alternative to traditional injectable procedures and is commonly employed for lip augmentations and reducing wrinkles within beauty salons. Now, it appears they have also started using Hyaluron Pen for the delivery of various products into the skin. How does it work? The Hyaluron Pen does not contain any needles. It operates on a principle of pressure technology. It uses a spring-loaded mechanism to create a high-pressure jet that pushes small amounts of hyaluronic acid filler or stem cells solution through the skin via a microscopic opening. The pressure is generated by the pen itself, eliminating the need for needles. It sounds tempting. However, we DO NOT recommend this method of delivery due to multiple reasons: Limited depth of penetration The Hyaluron Pen is designed for superficial injections and may not be suitable for deeper injections or for certain areas of the face that require more precise placement, such as the nasolabial folds or under-eye area. Poor precision and control One of the main reasons we prefer injections is the level of precision and control they offer. With a needle, we can make precise changes and target specific areas with accuracy. This is particularly important when it comes to delicate areas such as the lips or areas with fine lines and wrinkles. The Hyaluron Pen, on the other hand, may not provide the same level of precision, as the filler is dispersed underneath the skin. Also, since the insertion of drug is delivered through pressurized air, it is very hard to control how much drug is delivered. People tend to misuse the product and deliver hyaluronic acid into the wrong area given the lack of knowledge and control. Risks and safety considerations The device’s intense pressure can cause more severe problems like blocked blood vessels, leading to skin necrosis. In certain cases, when air pressure is not enough to surpass the superficial layer of the skin, filler may be delivered to the wrong area causing puffiness or uneven appearance. Swelling, bruising and lumpiness are also common complications. I have encountered clients who previously underwent stem cell therapy done with Hyaluron Pen at beauty salons before seeking treatment at our clinic. The results from those treatments were unsatisfactory, as evident by discoloured lumps and bumps visible at the treatment areas. For this reason, it is important to seek certified professionals for treatment. Uses of exosomes other than skin concerns: Hair loss Apart from skin rejuvenation, exosomes therapy also emerges as a promising and transformative solution for hair loss. Hair loss affects numerous individuals and can have a profound impact on self-confidence and overall well-being. Other treatment options include oral supplements, topical medications, PRP procedures and hair transplant. While PRP has been a proven treatment for hair loss, exosomes therapy takes it to the next level, delivering more growth factors than PRP. Introduction of exosomes into the scalp triggers the regeneration of hair follicles. These powerful messengers communicate with existing cells, encouraging them to proliferate and revive dormant hair follicles. Additionally, the growth factors present in exosomes also stimulate more blood flow to the scalp, providing nourishment and oxygen to the hair follicles, which aid in promoting hair growth and improving hair quality. From male and female pattern baldness to alopecia areata, exosomes therapy offers a versatile approach to address different types of hair loss. With its ability to stimulate natural hair growth and improve hair density, exosome therapy can help individuals regain their crowning glory and confidence. Regenerative medicine Mesenchymal stem cell- derived exosomes hold great potential as a novel cell-free therapeutic approach for addressing a wide array of diseases, such as heart, kidney, liver, immune and neurological conditions, as well as aiding in cutaneous wound healing. Researchers have been extensively exploring exosomes secreted by mesenchymal stem cells as a promising avenue for developing regenerative strategies to combat various diseases. These exosomes carry many of the therapeutic properties found in mesenchymal stem cells, making them valuable tools for innovative treatments. What’s particularly exciting is this cell-free therapy mitigates safety concerns associated with administering viable cells directly.
