Electroporation works on the pores of the skin. Our face is home to 20,000 pores. These are barely visible to the eye. The pores perform an important function for the skin and human health in general. As we age, the pores tend to expand. The elastin and collagen that support pores diminish over time causing the pores to stretch and sag and appear larger.
The other important aspect of electroporation is the role of cell membrane and its permeability. The cell membrane is a selectively permeable layer which let solvents and solutes, such as ions and molecules to pass through. Electropermeabilization is a technique which involves using short high-voltage pulses to overcome barrier of the cell membrane. This causes temporary permeability.
Now let's put all together, the pores, cell membrane and Electroporation beauty treatment. It is a technique that involves injection of products deep into the skin from the skin's surface without the use of a needle.
How is it done ?
The specialized electroporation equipment consists of three hand-pieces - facial applicator, body applicator and scalp applicator. Electroporation uses short modulated pulses of low current. When it touches the skin, transient aqueous pores are created. It boosts permeability of the cell membrane.
Why is it done ?
In order to stir the external skin layer cells. The stirring generates an opening and variation of spaces. Or, simply put - to open the skin cells and insert trans-dermal products (collagen and Hyaluronic acid) deeper into the skin. (Skin permeability)
There is a momentary disruption of the cell membrane which enables entry of the product (like collagen). When the pulse ceases, the cell membrane returns to its original structure. The cell traps the nutrients inside its membrane and allows for continuous and persistent corrective work. This creates changes in the skin.
How does the skin feel ?
With just one treatment, the skin will feel lifted and toned. The maximum results will be visible around 3-4 months. In the intermediate period, the results will keep improving as collagen rebuilds.
Who is it for ?

Here is the check-list:
How safe is using an electroporation beauty treatment device at home?
Considering the fact that most facial electroporation beauty treatment devices have limited penetration depth, it is largely safe. A responsible user would read the instructions and use the device as directed by the manufacturer. You could make use of the D-I-Y hand-held electroporation beauty treatment at home.
Remember! Do not continue treatment on the same part beyond 15 minutes. Further, research indicates 4 times better results if an exfoliation such as peel or microdermabrasion is done prior to doing electroporation beauty treatment.
What areas is Electroporation beauty treatment useful ?
Facial skin resurfacing: To reduce wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, and other blemishes. In addition to these, electroporation beauty treatment is used to tighten skin and balance skin tone.
Lines of expression: Expression lines or lines of expression are wrinkles around the lip and mouth. Contributory factors include loss of collagen, age, environmental free radicals and genetics. It could also be due to repetitive facial expressions over the years. As the skin's elasticity reduces, creases appear. Electroporation beauty treatment helps get the desired results by gently softening the fine lines with each subsequent treatment. The process initiates nutrition and rebirth of cells. This in turn, eliminates wrinkles in the deep layer of the skin.
Acne scars: Acne, after its disappearance leaves scars on the face - acne scars. Scars of any type, including acne scars cannot be completely removed. But through electroporation beauty treatment, the scars are not easily visible and blend in with the surrounding skin. The treatment also aims to eliminate and restrict acne revival.
Localized adiposity : This refers to localized fat deposits. Also referred to as ‘Fat pads', localized adiposity is found in buttocks and knees for women, and for men in the abdominal area. It is possible to treat the affected area in a targeted manner. Electroporation beauty treatment promotes elimination of fat.
Face and neck firming: Neck is often neglected. Electroporation beauty treatment helps get a firmer, tighter look. When ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, oxygen and natural lighteners are penetrated deeper into the skin, it improves hydration, reduces fine lines and firms and tightens the skin. The effect is visible within a couple of days.
Hyper-pigmentation (dark spots): Melanin, the pigment determines our skin color. When the cells overproduce melanin, it results in uneven dark patches on an otherwise even skin tone. Factors that contribute to overproduction of melanin are sun exposure, hormonal changes, genetic factor or drug reaction. Electroporation beauty treatment brightens affected parts and unwanted pigmentation is kept at bay. The result is clear, smooth and flawless skin.
Besides the above which are closely related to facial skin, electroporation is also used to take care of breast firming, keloid scars, cellulitis, stretch marks and flaccidity.
