A Galvanic Facial is often known as an Electrical Facial and contains two elements. It is used within a normal facial routine. You can cleanse, exfoliate then do a galvanic treatment, then finish with a mask, tone and moisturise.
First of all it uses a direct galvanic current that passes into the skin. This should never be a painful treatment.
Galvanic facials use a galvanic current to introduce water-soluble substances through the skin’s surface in an effort to improve ingredient absorption and moisture retention.
This particular type of facials is appropriate for most skin types, whether oily, normal, or dry. It boosts the effectiveness of any skin treatment, and because water-soluble substances are presented to the skin, it increases the skin’s ability to absorb, allowing the active ingredients of the facial as well as skin products to penetrate deeper.
If you have a dry complexion, or if your skin is in desperate need of hydration, a galvanic facial treatment is a good choice because it increases moisture retention. Also, if you have problem skin, this treatment is beneficial because it’s targeted at eliminating clogged pores and reducing oils that can lead to acne.
Desincrustation Galvanic Facial – This is the process whereby the dead skin cells are removed and the oily substance sebum is softened. The deep cleaning element removes the excess sebum secreted by the sebaceous glands. Desincrustation is a deep cleanse, relax pores, stimulate circulation, remove surface adhesions. Prepares the skin for extraction.
Iontophoresis Galvanic Facial – Places water soluble substances into the skin for super softening. Ampoules and Gels can be used.
The benefits to receiving a galvanic facial are numerous. Along with hydrating the skin, this facial is said to counteract complexion dullness brought on by aging or stress, eliminate sebaceous blockage and congestion (major causes of blemishes), increases circulation, and create a healthier glow.
Galvanic facials are also a great treatment for those who want a fresher look because they are non-invasive and aim at tightening and firming the skin and softening lines and wrinkles, resulting n a plumper, smoother look.
Having a galvanic facial is a painless procedure, though some people say they experience a slight tingling sensation. Because there is no downtime necessary, spa-goers may opt for this facial treatment during their lunch hour.
