TAU Researchers Say Their Technology Beats Botox

A team of researchers from Tel Aviv University and Harvard Medical School harnesses pulsed electric fields to stimulate new tissue

A team of researchers from Tel Aviv University and Harvard Medical School has devised a noninvasive technique that harnesses pulsed electric fields to stimulate new skin tissue, according to Israel21c, a website that specializes reporting about Israeli technological innovations.

The technique utilizes “microsecond-pulsed, high-voltage, non-thermal electric fields,” and reportedly produces rejuvenated skin without scars.

“Pulsed electrical field technology has many advantages, which have already proved effective — for example, in food preservation, tumor removal and wound disinfection,” bioengineering expert Alexander Golberg, who led the study on behalf of TAU’s Porter School of Environmental Studies, told Israel21c.

“Our new application may jumpstart the secretion of new collagen and capillaries in problematic skin areas,” Golberg explained. “Considering that, in the modern era of aging populations and climate change, degenerative skin diseases affect one in three adults over the age of 60, this has the potential to be a healthcare game-changer.”
