Galvanic Skin Infusion Treatment
What is Galvanic Skin Infusion?
This treatment is a very safe circuitry flow of positive and negative ions that actively push “just applied” water-soluble skin treatments deeply into the epidermis.
Suitable for any skin type this treatment accelerates product infusion into the skin by an extraordinary 70%! Galvanic works miracles as it opens pores for deep cleansing then reduces their size, it removes all grease and oil from the surface of the skin, balances the skin’s PH while it stimulates exhausted skin and moistens softens and tightens skin tissue.
Your skin will look and feel invigorated and radiant. This treatment can be added into any of our facial treatments at Face Plus to enhance product absorption.
How the treatment works
Skin is cleansed and a conductive gel is applied. A therapist moves an applicator that conducts the galvanic current to perform a lymphatic drainage massage and blood circulation is improved.
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 that slowly push the product on the skin’s surface deep down in the skin’s layers.
The skin then absorbs the treatment within seconds and the electric energy firms, tones and tightens the skin during the session. Most sessions last around 10 to 15 minutes, but are combined with a full facial treatment that can last up to an hour.
Does it hurt?
No, slight prickling or tingling sensation may be felt under the fingertips.
What to expect after the treatment
Any slight redness or swelling you may experience can be expected to settle very quickly. You can apply makeup immediately.
How many treatments are necessary?
This treatment can be a once-off treatment added to any facial, however to achieve optimal results we recommend a course of 6-12 treatments once or twice a week. A top up treatment is advised once every 3-6 months.
Can it be combined with other treatments?
Galvanic skin treatments are especially effective with any Dr Spiller facial topical treatment to experience an instant amazing result.
These treatments offer a solution for enhancing the performance of topical skincare products. The machine promotes the absorption of products used on the skin by pushing them deeper into the pores. These treatments also help to tighten the skin while visibly reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for good.
How Galvanic Facial Therapy Works
Galvanic treatments use very low-frequency impulses so to ensure there is absolutely no risk of electric shock or burns. The electricity triggers cellular turnover so any damaged tissue can repair and heal rapidly. Even though the procedure does not injure the tissue, it ‘tricks’ cells into thinking so therefore speeding up the ‘healing’ process.
Galvanic facial treatments have a proven record of accomplishment in Europe and have been used for decades as an anti-aging solution. Micro current energy has been documented and studied for over a century.
