Microneedling + Exosomes

Microneedling NYC | Facial Treatment

As a non-surgical facial process, microneedling with exosomes utilizes modern-day technology to help you produce collagen and elastin, which are the prime compounds needed to help keep your skin strong and healthy. The benefits of microneedling include:

  • Softening the appearance of pores

  • Helps to improve acne scars and treats surgical scars

  • Reduces facial lines and wrinkles by producing collagen and elastin

  • Creates a luminous, healthy glow

  • Helps to reduce uneven skin tones or texture

Multiple sessions of the exosomes skin treatment are required when looking to address specific concerns such as acne scarring and skin texture improvement, but a major benefit of using exosome facial rejuvenation for the microneedling process is that exosomes lead to a faster healing process after the treatment.

Microneedling NYC | What is the Microneedling Treatment?

Microneedling with exosomes utilizes a medical-grade tip containing dozens of needles that are stamped into the skin at a precise depth to create controlled micro-injuries that promote collagen induction. Utilizing exosomes is crucial to the rejuvenation process. The exosome serum for microneedling is an extracellular vesicle responsible for cell-to-cell communication and for facilitating the exchange of RNA and other important proteins between cells (e.g. fibroblasts, keratinocytes, immune cells, etc.), in addition to transferring numerous growth factors and cytokines and genetic materials that have shown signs of tissue repair and improving skin cells. This plays a key role in establishing microneedling face results that will have your skin glowing and luminous by helping to deliver concentrated stem cells to the surface of the skin, growing collagen and elastin. 

For the maintenance of healthier-looking and tighter skin, clients should receive microneedling exosome treatment for the face every 3-4 months at our men's medspa in NYC. Patients are numbed in advance to minimize discomfort during the treatment. We use medical-grade disposable tips attached to a medical-grade device that allows the needles to make clean, vertical micro-injuries during the microneedling process. Other forms of microneedling for sagging skin such as rollers put the client at risk for scarring, infection, and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, and are not recommended. 

Pre-Care | Post-Care
  • Must not have any active breakouts (a pimple here or there is fine). 

  • Do not wear makeup to your appointment. 

  • Must not have any active skin infections.

  • No sunburned skin.


Does microneedling hurt?

Numbing is applied prior to the procedure to make the patient more comfortable during the microneedling facial with exosomes. There is some mild discomfort associated with microneedling.

How long does it take to see the results of microneedling with exosomes?

Patients will see microneedling for the face results over the course of 2-8 weeks after each microneedling with exosomes session as the skin heals and creates new collagen. Patients often require multiple microneedling treatments, especially if targeting acne scars and significant texture.

What’s the downtime?

There is no downtime involved after the exosome facial rejuvenation treatment process is complete. The patient can return immediately to their normal routine. Just expect to be red immediately after your treatment and then pink for the next 2 days before seeing microneedling face results.

Is microneedling for the face safe to do during the Summer?

Yes. Unlike chemical peels and lasers, microneedling facial treatment is easy to accommodate into your Summer schedule. During microneedling aftercare patients should avoid sun exposure for the first 3 days after their exosome treatment for the face but can resume sun exposure after with appropriate sunscreen application (and appropriate reapplication).

I have deep acne scars, will microneedling facial treatments help?

Yes, to some degree microneedling benefits for the skin include reducing acne scars. Other modalities such as chemical peels, RF Microneedling, and laser resurfacing may also be necessary to provide an optimal outcome.

How long do I have to wait after surgery to begin microneedling on my surgical scars?

Most surgeons clear patients to get microneedling and other treatments done to reduce the appearance of scars at the 6-month mark.

Is it normal for your face to be itchy after microneedling treatment?

Itchiness can be associated with healing. That being said, if you’re experiencing discomfort then just contact our office and Dr. Bustamante can prescribe you a topical steroid to put you at ease. However, itching is not typically experienced after microneedling with exosome serum.

Are there microneedling side effects after the procedure?

Patients will be red for 24 hours, followed by being pink for the next 2 days. Dryness and mild flaking should be expected from an exosome skin treatment, and patients should follow the post-care procedure instructions provided to them at their facial microneedling appointment.

What are the benefits of using an exosome serum for microneedling instead of PRP or PRF?

Exosomes yield higher amounts of growth factors and peptides than found in PRP or PRF. Because PRP and PRF are derived from your own blood, you’re limited based on what your body is able to produce. With BENEV Exosomes powered by ExoSCRT™, we see these exosomes promoting skin cell proliferation by up to 80% in a dose-dependent manner. The benefits of the exosome facial rejuvenation treatment far exceed the capability of PRP or PRF microneedling.
