Electric Fields Release Growth Factors

A team of researchers from Tel Aviv University and Harvard Medical School have developed a non-invasive technique using pulsed electric fields (PEF) to stimulate the secretion of new collagen and capillaries in skin, generating new skin tissue growth. Their work was recently published in Scientific Reports.

Results demonstrated that PEF induced skin re-epithelialization characterized by keratinocyte proliferation and growth at the sites where the epidermis was focally ablated.
