ELEVAI PREx Technology™
ELEVAI Skincare™ products were developed under a proprietary “source to skin” technology platform called PREx, Precision Regenerative Exosome Technology™ that is based on over 15 years of research and development by stem cell expert and biochemical engineer, Dr. Jordan Plews. PREx Technology™ was developed based on Dr. Plews intense interest and robust research on the natural repair process of the skin. His research centered around the ability to mimic that natural repair process to provide a new, innovative approach to treat aging skin.
Lets first start with a basic understanding of stem cells and exosomes.
What are Exosomes?
When the skin is young, natural stem cell populations are at their greatest and act as your body’s first line of defense. When the skin is younger, it is better at fighting aging because of the greater presence of stem cells. As we age, we can see our repair messages are less responsive through visual cues such as scarring that takes much longer to heal.
Stem cells release nano-vesicles (~30-150nm) called exosomes, or extracellular vesicles (EVs). The use of exosomes is important because nanovesicles have been found to penetrate better, absorb more easily, and protect skincare actives.
As exosomes penetrate the skin, they mimic the body’s natural healing responses. Skin damage and extrinsic aging caused by exposure to daily aggressors like pollution and UVA/UVB can benefit from exosomes, supporting improved blood flow as well as promoting the bodies natural ability to produce collagen and elastin to reveal the appearance of rejuvenated, more healthy looking skin.
