When it comes to skin care, spas are constantly looking for the best products and services to meet their client’s needs, Clients seeking skin care dispensed by a specialist are looking for superiority versus department store products, Today’s clients are more savvy and knowledgeable than ever and many are seeking a holistic approach to their skin health. For years, spas have offered a variety of innovative treatments sought out by clients ranging from facials, microdermabrasion, peels and the likes. As the number of quality products and product lines available grows, the search really becomes for a superior delivery system. This is where the introduction of Electroporation technology comes into play, Incorporating electroporation into facials seems to have elevated facial protocols to a new level, Electroporation, or electro-permeability, facials rely on exposing the skin to a light electrical field, Doing so reduces the cell wall’s resistance rendering it more permeable. The object is to allow the transfer of topically applied nurturing solutions or oils into the skin cells, Painless and side effect free, the process of electroporation, using substances and products with healing, balancing and revitalizing qualities, produces results that have a rejuvenating effect on the skin.
The outcome is a decrease in wrinkles and an increase in collagen production. It is also common practice to precede the treatment with a Sonic Dermabrasion or a peel, believed to create a boosting effect to the electroporation treatment.
Electroporation facials allow for better transportation of selectively chosen products through the skin, resulting in facials with magnified results.
This is a procedure where an externally applied electrical field causes an increase in the electrical conductivity and permeability of the cell plasma membrane, This is usually used in molecular biology as a way of introducing some substances into cells, This a mechanical method used to introduce polar molecules into a host cell through the cell membrane.
Currently, there are studies being evaluated using electroporation to physically enhance skin penetration through high voltage, short duration pulses applied to the skin; has been shown to effectively enhance skin penetration of molecules and water based compounds; may be able to deliver compounds such as skin nutrients and growth factors to the skin of the face more effectively and reduce signs of aging.
The patient is evaluated by the dermatologist to identify the skin problem, Through electroporation, medicine is applied to the face in a circular motion for about 30 minutes, The recommendation is to come for this treatment once a week until the regimen is completed, as prescribed by the dermatologist.
The number of transdermal pathways available via electroporation is over 500 times more than there are in iontophoresis.
What are the indications for treatment through electroporation?
- Brightening and smoothening of skin
- Hyperpigmented scars
