Galvanic Facial- the name sounds big and electric! This is a facial treatment for every skin type but it is not your regular facial. Galvanic Facial is a type of cosmetic electrotherapy which rejuvenates skin.
Galvanic facial makes the use of low level electric current to flush impurities out of skin and and refresh it. It is a two step process-
- Desincrustation- This is the cleansing step. Here a negatively charged gel is pushed into the skin using a negatively charged device. This neutralizes toxins.
- Iontophoresis- This step nourishes the skin. It uses positively charged anti-aging substances that are pushed into the dermal layer of skin. Here they work by boosting collagen and elastin production.
It takes the time of a normal facial and that is just about an hour.
The Benefits of Galvanic Facial
Galvanic facial boosts blood flow in the skin and tightens muscles. It removes wrinkles by stimulating collagen synthesis. Galvanic facial also nourishes and hydrates skin. It reduces acne and blemishes. It reduces dark circles and lifts sagging eyes. Nutrients penetrate deeply into the skin as it increases skin’s capacity to absorb them. These effects result in a glowing and youthful skin.
Getting a galvanic facial done at a saalon is very expensive and this has led many people to try it at home. All the required equipment is available in the market and can be used at home. But again, this is not advisable especially to the first timers. You should get the services of a trained aesthetician to get the best results and stay safe.
Warnings about Galvanic Facial
This facial is suitable for every skin type including sensitive skin. But there are certain restrictions too. You should not go for galvanic facial if you have a pacemaker or any other large metal implants in your body. Pregnant ladies and diabetic people should also stay away from galvanic facial.
