How does electroporation no-needle mesotherapy work?
New needle-free technologies are advancing transdermal delivery systems to help deliver active ingredients into the deeper layers of the skin without side effects.
The human skin comprises multiple layers of ectodermal tissue as a rigid barrier that acts as an interface with the environment and plays vital roles in protection, immunity, insulation, healing and aesthetics.
When others see our skin, they can determine many things about us; our mood, physical state and attractiveness. That is why the aesthetic industry puts so much effort into maintaining and improving our skin.
In beauty aesthetics, transdermal devices, or penetration enhancers, that use microneedles, sonophoresis, electroporation, and other innovative modalities offer practitioners an efficient and minimally invasive technique to penetrate the skin barrier.
Those techniques increase the likelihood of a satisfactory aesthetic outcome, minimise the risk of treatment complications, require no downtime, and have few contraindications.
American brand Zemits introduced for the UK market a highly effective device, Zemits Klein EL, for transdermal electroporation.
What is electroporation?
Electroporation, or no-needle mesotherapy, uses an electrical pulse to momentarily disrupt the cell membranes allowing products to enter into the deeper layers of the skin, enhancing the effects of active ingredients on the tissue.
The membrane returns to its original structure when the electrical stimulation is over.
The other way a similar outcome is achieved is by injections such as mesotherapy. However, while achieving good results, mesotherapy can be painful and has a risk of side effects such as swelling, erythematous, infections or bruising. No-needle mesotherapy is an entirely pain-free procedure.
The difference between mesotherapy and electroporation
Transdermal electroporation can be part of an anti-ageing protocol or offered as a targeted treatment for small areas of concern.
Some of the most common applications are pigmentation, acne, psoriasis, skin rejuvenation and anti-ageing.
The newly evolved Zemits Klein EL allows a targeted penetration of up to 70% of active ingredients into the skin.
In the updated configuration, the device has two handpieces, a smaller one for the eye and lip area and a larger one for electroporation of the face, neck, and décolleté.
Through targeted treatments, electroporation improves skin’s colour and texture, thickens the skin and improves elasticity.
