What is the essence of the method?
Electroporation is a hardware method that represents
a non-injection mesotherapy, only as a needle here
protruding electric current. This method was invented by chemists.
Roderick McKinnon and Peter Egr both got for their research
Nobel Prize. Despite the fact that the Nobel Prize was on
chemistry, it has a direct relation to the lively life
The thing is that the vital resources that are contained
in cells, they are depleted over time, but they cannot penetrate from the outside
for several reasons. This is primarily a large molecular weight.
substances and the small size of the ion channels.
The discovery of two scientists made it possible to thoroughly understand the processes
that occur between the living cell and the environment, and
to understand exactly how water-salt metabolism takes place between a cell and
medium from the outside. Every living cell consists of a double layer of fat
(lipid) molecules, as well as from some proteins. Cell membrane
possesses the “reasonable selective” property of passing into the cell
only those substances that ensure its viability and
effectively protect it from aggressive environmental influences
Electroporation, due to microcurrents of a certain frequency and
forces, allows you to “open” the ion channels that are in
epidermis. Special protein transporters that are in
these channels are in contact with molecules of certain substances and
move them to the deep layers of the skin. When impact
electric current is stopped, the ion channels are closed, and
the substance that the skin needed, remains to “work” in deep
For electroporation, a combination of pulses of different
forms that are modulated in frequency and amplitude. Pulse current
creates temporary water channels in biopolar membranes, through
which the drug passes into the deep layers of the skin. After penetration
drugs deep into the skin these channels are closed by independent
in a way.
What effect is expected from electroporation
This method allows to improve skin performance due to
deep tissue moistening. Therefore, electroporation is recommended in
primarily for patients with dehydrated skin. However not worth it

- return face smoothness and freshness due to deep moisturizing
- eliminate mimic wrinkles and make less pronounced
- improve complexion and skin turgor;
- eliminate acne;
- make the enlarged pores less visible;
- remove scars after acne;
- eliminate flabbiness and return skin elasticity;
- stop hair loss;
- restore skin after injection procedures;
- restore the water balance of the skin;
- remove age spots;
- eliminate couperose.
Also using this method you can make detoxification

glycolic acid based preparations.
How is the procedure
The procedure begins with cleansing the skin: removes makeup, dirt and
dust. In some cases, the area to be treated
subjected to ultrasonic peeling. Thus, the skin is cleansed from
keratinized scales that prevent the penetration of beneficial
substances in the deep layers of the skin.
Then a special nozzle with a cavity is filled with a substance
which needs to be introduced deep into the dermis, and the session begins
no-injection mesotherapy. The nozzle receives a current of a certain
forces that promotes the opening of ion channels. Nozzle
moves around the skin, constantly in contact with her
surface, and nutrients easily penetrate inside
The apparatus for electroporation usually produce electrical
current and vibrations. Electric current is needed for transportation
active substances, and vibrations – to activate the skin
The procedure takes about 20 minutes, the recommended course of procedures
consists of 10 sessions, 1 time per week. Subsequently for
anchoring effect is necessary to conduct supporting sessions
electroporation – 1 time in 2 month.
Indications for the procedure
The procedure is shown in the following cases:
- skin dehydration;
- enlarged pores;
- extensive pigment spots;
- the presence of wrinkles;
- presence of rosacea;
- after various cosmetic procedures (peelings, polishing,
- the presence of scar acne;
- flabbiness and loss of elasticity;
- hair loss;
Contraindications to the procedure
- pregnancy and lactation;
- autoimmune and oncological diseases;
- micro injuries and skin damage;
- diseases of the cardiovascular system;
- the presence of a pacemaker in the body;
- the presence in the body of metal prostheses;
- individual intolerance to electrical effects
Preparations used during electroporation
The electroporation procedure is impossible without special preparations.
It should be noted that traditional creams, gels, ointments are not suitable for
electroporation, as they have a dense structure. And in the deep layers
skin can penetrate only water-soluble substances.
For this reason, for the procedure electroporation of the skin is used
preparations based on hyaluronate with a certain percentage of collagen.
The concentration of hyaluronic acid plays a special role, otherwise it does not
will be able to stimulate important processes in the skin. Also for
electroporation use mezokokteyli with water-soluble
vitamins, amino acids and minerals.
Benefits of the procedure
Electroporation procedure can be a worthy alternative.
beauty injections, as it has several advantages:
- no pain;
- the absence of skin injuries: edema, redness, burns;
- ease and availability of the procedure;
- lack of rehabilitation period;
- good effect after the procedure.
This procedure has virtually no drawbacks, except
lack of additional attachments for transporting active
substances into the skin.
What procedures can electroporation be combined with?
Very often to enhance the positive effect of electroporation
supplement with other cosmetic procedures. Most often it is:
- lymphatic drainage;
- laser therapy.
In tandem with laser therapy, electroporation has
rejuvenating and stimulating effect. When restoring the epidermis
there are natural processes of rejuvenation and restoration that
helps to improve skin characteristics.
In combination with myostimulation, electroporation carries out lifting
soft tissue, which persists for several years. In addition, the skin
gets good nutrition and care.
Lymphatic drainage in combination with electroporation gives a stunning effect.
