Regenerative aesthetics is a burgeoning field for skin rejuvenation and skin health restoration. Exosomes, or extracellular vesicles, represent a new and minimally invasive addition to the regenerative aesthetic toolbox. These nano-sized vesicles contain bioactive cargo with crucial roles in intercellular communication. Exosome technology, while still in its infancy, is now leveraged in regenerative aesthetic medicine due to its multifaceted role in targeting root causes of skin aging and improving overall tissue homeostasis. The main considerations for practice utilization include variation in exosome purification, isolation, storage, scalability and reproducibility. This review aims at highlighting the current and emerging landscape of exosomes in aesthetic medicine including skin rejuvenation and hair restoration.
