Galvanic High Frequency E-Facial

Galvanic High Frequency E-Facial – Available in Somerset with Katie and Sarah

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.
Desincrustation – 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 – Places water soluble substances into the skin for super softening. Ampoules and Gels can be used. Gels are generally easier to use as they don’t run all over the face. Dry skin, skin that is dull is best for using with Iontophoresis.

High Frequency facial can be used on deeply congested acne prone skin.  The high frequency element of this course can be applied in two ways. Directly or Indirectly. During a direct treatment a glass electrode is placed directly onto the skin or over a gauze and is applied using slow circular motions. The current travels through the electrode and into the skin. During an indirect treatment the client holds the electrode in their hands. The therapist massages the clients skin which causes the current to transfer from the clients skin to the therapists hands. The function of a high frequency facial is that it accelerates blood circulation, helps promote metabolism, kills bacteria, anti congestive, relaxing, aids creams and lotions enter the skin better.
