What is a Galvanic Facial?
A Galvanic facial gives youthful skin without the need for sticking needles into your face or undergoing any surgical procedures and has been described as a ‘non-surgical facelift’. The facial involves a machine using a low level electrical current to infuse gels, creams or medication into the face.
The direct current stimulates your skin cells and pushes the creams, gels or medication into the deep layers of the skin resulting in softer skin. It also improves the blood circulation and hydration levels of your face therefore making it much more radiant while being completely pain free, it just feels like a massage.
The thing I love most about this amazing machine is you can do the whole Galvanic Facial yourself using it in the comfort of your own home! I used the Nuskin Galvanic Spa with the Ageloc facial gels and was absolutely amazed with the results after just my first 10 minute treatment, it’s like magic!
You apply the positively charged anti-aging gel to your face, then you wet and place your 4 fingers on the electrode pad on the back of the machine and a positively charged current passes through your skin. This pushes all the active ingredients in the gels deep into the epidermal layers of your skin which dramatically increases the efficiency of any skin products you use after the procedure. It is suitable for all skin types as well as sensitive skin and has many benefits!
Reduces wrinkles and fine lines – The Galvanic Spa Facial rejuvenates your skin. It restores the balance while tightening and reducing any fine lines and wrinkles on your skin that may have appeared for a number of different reasons like age, sun exposure and stress. The beauty of the Galvanic Spa is that you can give yourself a facial up to 3 times a week without having to leave the house (or pay for a treatment in a salon)
Soothes and calms your skin – Aging results in rough skin, wrinkles, fine lines and age spots. The Galvanic Spa eases the muscles and facial tissues that are stiffened by the aging process. Once the tissues and muscles are relaxed more oxygen and blood can be carried to the skin cells, the skins pH balance is restored also, resulting in soft, smooth skin.
Helps acne prevention – The Galvanic Spa Facial can also help reduce and prevent acne as it extracts all the impurities stuck in any clogged skin pores leaving them clean.
A detox for your skin – The electric current from the Galvanic Spa stimulates the skin and enables lymph drainage which improves the skin’s ability to naturally cleanse itself of any harmful toxins that unfortunately we cannot prevent from meeting in everyday life.
Improves the elasticity of your skin - The current that passes through your skin during the Galvanic Spa Facial makes it firm again, helps tighten it and revives it. I performed the facial on half of my face with the machine then did a pinch test on both the treated side and the un-treated side and could really notice the difference, I was shocked! (After just the first time of using it)
Improves your complexion – The electrical current produces negative ions that trap dirt, toxins and impurities which in turn cleanses and gives your skin a brighter, clearer complexion.
More efficient product penetration – The treatment gels containing the anti-aging (alongside other) ingredients that are applied to your skin contain positive ions and the galvanic current contains negative ions. The current therefore pushes the ingredients from the gels deeper into the tissues and cells within your skin layer which is where products work with the highest efficiency.
Moisturises your skin thoroughly – The Galvanic Spa Facial promotes cell regeneration and removes dead skin cells which revitalises your skin, increasing moisture retention and making it more elastic. Moisturising face creams do not penetrate deep layers of your skin, the galvanic facial helps resolve this.
Boosts Oxygen levels and blood circulation – Oxygen makes your face feel tighter and fresher and supports moisture retention, the Galvanic Spa Facial increases the production of collagen and skin cells. The new skin cells replace the old faster and the flow of blood to the surface of your skin is stimulated which increases the supply of oxygen.
