Galvanic Facial Treatment
What is galvanic iontophoresis facial?
Iontophoresis therapy is the therapeutic introduction of ions of soluble salts into tissues by means of electric current; a form of electro-osmosis; also, a process of increasing the penetration of drugs into surface tissues by the application of electric current.
Iontophoresis is also used for different medical conditions. These include:
Pregnant women, people with large metal implants, and people with implanted pacemakers should not have iontophoresis. The electric current used on the skin is very low and is not harmful.
Frequently Asked Questions
If you’ve been using countless skin products to zap away wrinkles, brighten up the skin or even cleanse and exfoliate, you could be wasting your time. The skin blocks the absorption of almost all products applied directly on top of the pores, which is why even the most expensive skin care products will not make any difference to the texture or tone of your skin.
Galvanic facial treatments offer a solution for making those skincare products work; the machine promotes the absorption of products used on the skin, driving them deeper into the pores so that they can work. It also helps to tighten up the skin, helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for good.
How Galvanic Facial Therapy Works
The galvanic hand piece is used to direct a galvanic current of ions directly into the skin. These positive and negative ions act like a magnet on top of the skin’s surface, and will slowly push the product lying on the skin’s surface down into the deeper layers. The skin can then absorb the treatment within seconds, and the electric energy also firms up, tones and tightens the skin during the session. Most sessions last for just 10-15 minutes, but are combined with a full facial treatment that can last up to an hour.
Micro current energy has been documented and studied for over a century, and galvanic treatments use very low-frequency impulses so there is no risk of burning or electric shock. The electricity triggers cellular turnover so that any damaged tissues can repair and heal quickly, and even though the procedure does not injure the tissues, it does ‘trick’ the cells so that they begin to undergo the healing process.Galvanic facial treatments have a proven track record in Europe, and have been used for decades as an anti-aging solution.
The galvanic gel applied to the skin directly before the treatment is also effective for toning up and brightening up the skin, and can help to calm down inflammed skin while stimulating the tissue as a gentle massage. The micromassage treatments stimulate deep under the skin’s surface, so the treated area will not be aggravated in any way.
