Nano Pulse Stimulation, bioelectric stimulation can treat skin lesions

According to a new study published in the special issue of the journal Bioelectricity, most of the human diseases including skin lesions can be treated by applying bioelectrical impulses.

The Nano-Pulse Stimulation (NPS) technique works by delivering nanosecond pulsed electric fields to cells and tissues.

NPS specifically targets cells to generate nanometer wide pores and facilitate the entry of small ions that change the flow the sodium, calcium and potassium ions inside and outside of the cell.

This technique can induce the death of cell in case of skin lesions and there won’t be scarring as it does not affect the skin collagen.

Dr Richard Nuccitelli explained the characteristics of NPS on skin lesions (epidermal and dermal), warts and on normal skin.

The same technique of regulating ion channel was employed to rescue tadpoles from the effects of alcohol and the research was supported by National Institute of Health.
