Skin ageing is a continuous process influenced by various factors, both inherent (genetic, hormonal, and metabolic) and extrinsic (such as UV exposure, smoking, air pollution, chemicals, and poor nutrition). As we age, our skin’s connective tissue weakens, leading to a decrease in elastin and collagen fibres, which manifests as lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Traditional treatments for skin laxity often involved surgical procedures, but the growing demand for non-invasive methods has led to the development of numerous new devices and therapies that offer minimal risk and quicker recovery times.

Established Methods for Skin Care

Topical Treatments
These include creams, serums, and lotions with ingredients like retinoids, hyaluronic acid, antioxidants (vitamins C and E), peptides, and growth factors. These products are designed to improve skin texture, stimulate collagen production, reduce wrinkles, improve elasticity, and increase hydration.

Chemical Peels
Chemical peels involve applying a solution to the skin that causes the outer layer to peel away, revealing smoother, less wrinkled skin underneath. This method is particularly effective for facial areas.

Microdermabrasion
This is a pretty minimal procedure that uses crystals or a wand with a diamond tip to exfoliate the skin, which improves the overall tone and texture.

Injectables
Botulinum toxin (e.g., Botox) and dermal fillers (e.g., hyaluronic acid fillers) are used to reduce wrinkles and restore volume to the face.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP therapy involves injecting concentrated platelets and growth factors from the patient’s blood into the skin to stimulate collagen production and rejuvenate the skin.

Laser Therapy
Laser treatments target specific skin issues like wrinkles, age spots, and uneven tone using focused light beams. Different lasers are used for various purposes, including skin tightening and resurfacing.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy
IPL therapy uses a broad spectrum of light to treat skin concerns. It’s generally gentler than laser therapy but may require more sessions to achieve similar results.

Ultrasound Therapy
Non-invasive ultrasound treatments use focused waves to penetrate the skin deeply, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin.

Radiofrequency Therapy
This method uses energy waves to heat deeper skin layers, stimulating collagen production and tightening existing collagen fibres.

Although PEMF isn’t widely known for skin tightening or anti-ageing on its own, it can help improve skin health by improving blood microcirculation, which supports the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the skin.

Benefits of PEMF in skin care

  • Improved blood circulation: Enhances nutrient and oxygen delivery to the skin, supporting overall skin health.
  • Collagen production: It also helps to stimulate collagen production, which can help to maintain skin elasticity and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
  • PEMF therapy is also effective in promoting wound healing, which can be beneficial for post-surgical recovery and skin regeneration. These effects help wounds to heal and can indirectly benefit skin health and appearance.

Suggestions for using PEMF in skin care

Frequency
The best frequencies for anti-aging and collagen production are 12 Hz and 25 Hz. It’s a good idea to apply these frequencies simultaneously, with 25 Hz at a higher intensity (2.5 mT) and 12 Hz at a lower intensity (1.2 mT).

Intensity
We’ve found that 2.5 mT is the best intensity for improving tissue flexibility and getting comparable results in human subjects.

Placement
Place the PEMF device as close to the skin as you can.

Duration and Regime
A duration of 30 minutes per session, once a day, over approximately 30 days is ideal for anti-aging purposes.

Studies

Biochemical System
A study by Ahmed in 2013 showed that PEMF exposure at specific frequencies (2-10 Hz) and magnetic field intensities (0.5-2.5 mT) increased collagenase enzyme activity, which plays a role in collagen synthesis.

Tissue and Cell Cultures
Research on human mesenchymal stem cells (BM-MSCs) showed that PEMF stimulation helped the cells to support the immune response, blood vessel formation, and bone tissue formation, all of which are important for skin health.

Animal Models
Studies on rats showed that PEMF therapy at specific settings (e.g., 25 Hz, 2 mT) increased collagen synthesis and wound healing rates, even in diabetic models with delayed healing.

Human Subjects
In a study on diabetic patients, PEMF therapy significantly improved wound healing and microcirculation, indicating its potential benefits for skin health.

Conclusion

PEMF therapy has the potential to improve skin health through enhanced blood circulation and collagen production. While it isn’t a standalone anti-ageing treatment, it can be used alongside other non-invasive cosmetic procedures to give clients a holistic approach to maintaining youthful and healthy skin.
