'How much does an exosome infusion cost?'

I am sure you all have these questions.

Exosome infusion is a hot procedure with anti-aging potential, and many people are interested in it. Some people would like to try it, but may not be able to take the first step because of the above-mentioned concerns.

In this article, Smart Skin Clinic, a cosmetic dermatology clinic, will provide an explanation from a professional standpoint so that everyone interested in exosome infusion can receive treatment with peace of mind.


【【Conclusion: Exosome infusion is not covered by insurance.

Let me begin with a conclusion.

Exosome infusion therapy is not covered by insurance.(as of January 2024)

So, as in the case of going to a regular restaurant, you will be responsible for the full amount.

This is because this one has the distinction of [free medical treatment], such as cosmetic medicine. Since it is free medical care, each store (clinic) is free to set its own price, just like a ramen shop (insurance treatment is uniformly set by the government). (In the case of insured treatment, the government sets a uniform price.)

Are medical expenses deductible?

Deductible medical expenses

The medical expense deduction is basically for expenses for "treatment" purposes. Expenses for "treatment" purposes are the following cases.

  • doctor's fee (bill)
  • hospital expenses
  • Transportation expenses for hospitalization and hospital visits
  • Expenses for the purchase of medicines necessary for treatment or convalescence

 On the other hand, those that are not deductible as medical expenses mainly apply to those for cosmetic, preventive, or health promotion purposes.

There is no possibility of deductibility of medical expenses.

Exosome infusion is not uniformly covered by insurance, though,medical expenses deductionIn some cases, you may be able to receive a medical deduction for your medical expenses. There is no possibility of receiving a medical deduction, so if you have a tax accountant file your tax return, it is a good idea to consult with him or her.

However, as of today (January 2024), it is basically an exosome infusion for cosmetic, preventive, and health promotion purposes, so it is best to assume that it is not deductible as a medical expense.

cost price

The price for exosome infusion is40,000~200,000 yen per timeIt is as high as about (as of January 2024)
*Some of them are priced in the millions.

You may have thought it was quite broad, and the reason for this is related to the fact that exosome infusion itself is a fairly new treatment.

What this means is that when a new product or service is first introduced to the market, the "fair price" has not yet been established.

To give an example, suppose someone starts selling water in a desert where water is not sold. Suppose it sells for 100,000 yen. However, when it turns out that it can be sold for 100,000 yen, the next person will sell it for 90,000 yen. Through this repetition, the price of water will eventually settle down to just over 100 yen.

So, although it is impossible to say how much is just over 100 yen in terms of water, this is one reason for the wide range of prices currently available.

In addition, exosome infusion has different collection sources, such as umbilical cord-derived, fat-derived, and pulp-derived, and the price quoted will vary accordingly.

Points to consider when choosing an exosome infusion

We would like to share with you one possible point of reference when choosing a clinic to receive exosome infusion.

(1) Identify the type of exosome (what is its origin)

There are three major types of exosomes.

  • Umbilical cord-derived
  • Fat-derived
  • Bone marrow-derived and dental pulp-derived

However, it is generally believed that exosomes derived from umbilical cord blood are better because they are rarer and younger.

Therefore, it is a good idea to check the prices as they may vary depending on this origin.

(2) Check the cost

Be sure to confirm the exact cost along with the origin. Please refer to the previous section for the current cost rates.

(3) Check the reviews (check the track record)

The minimum points are confirmed by checking the type and cost. After that, it may be a good idea to look at how they are evaluated objectively by word of mouth and their track record.

The above is just one example of how to choose a clinic to receive exosome infusion, but please use it as a reference when making your decision.
