The benefits of a Galvanic facial are numerous and the treatment is suitable for all skin types. Age and constant exposure to the elements can take a toll on the skin, especially the face. Galvanic facials revitalize the skin by increasing blood circulation, improving muscle tone and firmness, promoting rapid cell metabolism and renewal, and clearing blocked pores.

What is a Galvanic facial?

It is a ‘non-surgical facelift’ to boost the skin without having to undergo surgery or injections. The device or messenger has a chrome base that conducts the galvanic current directly onto the skin. The treatment helps to improve hydration levels and blood circulation to the face. This results in a radiant, youthful glow, with smoother, firmer skin.

Two Types of Treatments

The first type of treatment is Iontophoresis. This procedure uses a positively charged gel that is applied to your skin. A negative electrode is either given to you to hold or rests on your shoulder. Next, a positively charged current is passed through your skin, pushing the product deep into the epidermal layers. This will dramatically increase the absorption of all skin products used after the treatment.

The second type of treatment is desincrustation. This process is where the galvanic current emulsifies and softens the sebum and keratin found in hair follicles. This makes the removal of blackheads and clogged pores painless. The skin gets a deep cleaning and softening at the same time.

Other galvanic facial benefits

A galvanic facial treatment is a good option for hydrating dry skin to increase moisture retention. Or, if your skin type leans more to oily, a galvanic treatment will help eliminate clogged pores and reduce oils that can lead to acne.

A galvanic facial improves the production of collagen and new skin cells. Which in turns helps new cells replace the older ones much faster. It also stimulates blood flow, increasing the oxygen supply to your face. Oxygen makes your skin feel tighter and look fresher.

A galvanic facial treatment is relatively painless, though some patients may experience a slight tingling sensation. There is no downtime after the procedure so you can treat yourself over your lunch hour.

Galvanic facials are not recommended for people who have a heart condition, braces or who have undergone major, metal dental work.
