The Role of Regenerative Medicine in Anti-Aging


When hearing the term “Regenerative Medicine,” many tend to think of internal medicine and the healing of organs and diseases.

A lesser-known area of regenerative medicine is in the area of anti-aging and rejuvenation.

Simply put, skin regeneration is the process of skin cells turning over, resulting in newly fresh cells beneath.

So in what ways can regenerative therapies be used in skin care and cosmetic dermatology?

This article will cover some of the therapies Luminescence offers that have shown noticeable results with skin repair and regeneration. Keep reading to learn more!

Regenerative Anti-Aging Options

Luminescence provides regenerative skin therapy options that have shown proven results. The three main therapies we offer have the highest success rates among patients in medspas everywhere.


Microneedling is a non-surgical skin rejuvenation procedure that utilizes tiny needles to penetrate the skin’s surface and kickstart your body’s natural wound-healing process, thus stimulating collagen production.

It also treats other areas of concern including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Acne and blackheads

Luminescence specifically uses the SkinPen – an FDA-approved microneedling device that has been clinically proven to improve the appearance of wrinkles and damaged skin.

Exosome Therapy

Exosome therapy is a form of regenerative therapy that utilizes exosomes to rejuvenate the skin.

The exosomes prompt the body’s natural healing process, making them a great option for reducing inflammation and speeding up healing following more invasive procedures.

Aside from their healing properties, exosomes also:

  • Stimulate cell regeneration (for up to 6 months following treatment!)
  • Increase collagen and elastin production
  • Reduce the appearance of wrinkles and age-related pigments/spots
  • Plump and firm the skin
  • Improve overall skin texture and appearance

Exosomes are naturally found in the body and are extracted through human stem cells for use following many different aesthetic procedures including microneedling and resurfacing lasers.

PRF Treatments

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is another regenerative option that is often added with microneedling sessions for improved healing and results.

PRF is found in the blood and is known for its regenerative and healing properties. When combined with microneedling, PRF:

  • Encourages collagen and elastin production
  • Stimulates growth in the cells
  • Targets skin damage
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improves skin tone and texture

Like exosomes, PRF is also great for reducing redness, inflammation, and swelling that can sometimes occur following microneedling.
