FAQ’s About Galvanic Facials By Beauty Salon Great Missenden – Call Us On 01494 865005
What is galvanic current?
It is a steady, direct stream of electric current. The current is very low and causes a slight tingling sensation. It is not at all painful.
How long has galvanic current been used in the aesthetic industry?
About 100 years ago, galvanic current was successfully used to force water-soluble substances through the skin. The skincare industry began using it with excellent results about 70 years ago, and continues to use it today.
How is it used in facials?
Galvanic current pushes water-soluble ingredients down into the three layers of your skin, not just one, as with most traditional facials. These deeper layers love it because products rarely get a chance to reach this far below the skin’s surface. The outcome is two-fold. The current “awakens” and stimulates collagen and elastin to produce younger, firmer looking skin, and results are longer lasting.
I’ve thought about facial fillers but don’t really like the idea of needles. Could galvanic facials help?
Yes! Collagen and elastin slow down as we age. Galvanic current stimulates both fibers, waking them up, you might say, so that they start producing more. That means tighter, firmer skin.
What kinds of chemicals are used in galvanic facials?
None! There are no toxins and no harsh chemicals in a galvanic facial. We use water-soluble ingredients because Mother Nature is the most powerful anti-aging advocate we have!
Are galvanic facials painful?
Not in the least! You might feel a slight tingling sensation, but that’s all. It’s an extremely relaxing experience.
What kind of results can I expect with a galvanic facial?
Because galvanic facials use a low-level current that reaches into all three layers of your skin, results are not only immediate they are longer lasting, with continued results for weeks after your facial. And, if you also use our professional skincare line, Elemis, those results will be enhanced because it is an active, potent line.
What skin types can benefit from galvanic facials?
All skin types can safely use and benefit from this incredible facial, including sensitive! Excellent for oily, combination, dry and mature, galvanic facials are customized for each individual skin type.
What about acne? Can galvanic facials help with it?
Yes, for those with mild to moderate cases of acne, galvanic facials are great! Galvanic current softens blackheads, which makes them much easier and less painful to extract. They also remove blockages like whiteheads and clear congestion that leads to acne.
How often should I get a galvanic facial?
We recommend every 4-6 weeks. The deeper layers of your skin will continue to be stimulated, producing more collagen and elastin to counteract sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles. Monthly facials continue to enhance the effectiveness of your skincare products.
