A specialised pre-treatment gel with a negative charge is applied to clean, dry skin. This step is called desincrustation and helps to cleanse the pores. After the pre-treatment gel is removed with a damp wash cloth, a second gel with a positive charge is applied to the skin and left on during the use of the instrument.
The use of this second gel is called iontophoresis, or the nutrition step, for the skin. The esthetician uses a galvanic messenger with a chrome base that conducts the galvanic current directly onto the skin. The current is a mixture of positive and negative ions that help rebalance and redistribute energy throughout the skin.
A galvanic facial can be considered a non-surgical face lift, and results include smoothed out wrinkles, tightened muscles and increased blood circulation, which nourishes the skin cells. Galvanic facials can be very beneficial for individuals with very oily and/or acneic skin. Galvanic treatment is recommended for most skin types, including sensitive skin. However, it is not recommended for individuals who are diabetic, have circulation concerns, have metal plates or pins, or are pregnant. For best results it is recommended to have a minimum of four treatments over a period of 8 weeks.
