This is a very popular treatment, which may be applied directly or in directly onto the skin to stimulate and heal the skin.
The High frequency current generates warmth in the skin and stimulates the nerve endings. This in turn increases blood circulation.

This method uses a glass electrode which is moved slowly over the skin, it is sometimes known as EFFLUVATION. The current passes from the electrode and is dispersed over the skin. The warmth generated in the tissues will produce the beneficial effects for the client doing this chosen treatment.

Clients with Acne or Seborrhea present on the skin will benefit much more with sparking effect which will give a Germicidal effect, this will dry out the pustule that are present on the skin to give that drying effect which will help to heal and dry out the bacteria in the skin.

Galvanic Facial Treatments

A facial treatment often applied using roller over the skin with the application of specialised gels/serums or ampoules. It is very successful and extremely popular as it has proven to show excellent results. It is recommended for different skin types and conditions as it has the scope to treat in two totally different ways. The first treatment is designed to deep cleanse the pores of the skin and degrease oily areas.

It can be used to deep cleanse most skins depending on their needs. It is particularly effective on oily congested skins. This is called Desincrustation. The second treatment involves the re-balancing of the skin whatever the type, from oily to dry including sensitive. This treatment will help to re-balance, and hydrate the skin. This is referred to as Iontophoresis. These two facials are available separately as well as one facial treatment. This will depend upon the preference of the Therapist, the skin care and equipment range she is trained in and the client's needs. The name of the facial will not always refer to Galvanic Iontophoresis or Desincrustation, however by asking the Therapist a few short questions you should be able to establish the contents of the facial advertised at our Skin Beauty Clinic.

Q. Can anyone receive these types of facials?
A. When the therapist gives the initial consultation for a facial treatment there will be a variety of questions asked. Amongst these questions will be ones that refer to your medical history. It will be identified should there be a condition that is not compatible with a certain facial. often there is an alternative available. Examples of some conditions that need consideration by the Therapist are; Diabetes, Circulatory Disorders, Metal pins and plates implanted into the body. Pregnancy, to name but a few. By making your Therapist aware of any condition or medication that you take will enable the treatment to be adapted. This will ensure your skin is not over-sensitised and the facial selected is totally suitable.

Q. How often can I receive this type of facial?
A. This will depend on your skin type. On average facials of this type are recommended monthly once the condition is in control. Prior to this you may find a weekly or fortnightly facial useful to correct a specific condition.

Q. How does Galvanic Facial Therapy Work?
A. As you gently rub or press the galvanic massager over your face it gives a steady, direct galvanic current of positive and negative ions through your skin.

Galvanic facial is based on the basic laws of electricity, "like repels, opposites attract. The two forces ( + positive and - negative) pull together like a magnet and push the product in to the deeper layers of the skin (the dermis). The capacity of your skin absorption is increased by the galvanic ion and this improves the penetration of nutrition products (anti wrinkle lotion) through your skin.

In addition, skin will be completely cleansed as negative ions force all the dirt and debris held within your pores to the surface. At the same time the positive ions gives you a fresh look and plumps the skin, banishing wrinkles furthermore smoothens and reduces the Expression lines.

Treatment types of Radiofrequency

Benefits for "Facial rejuvenation" aiding "Wrinkles/Expression lines"

Radio Frequency Bipolar/Tri Polar refers to a device having two/ three poles or Electrodes.
With bipolar delivery, the current from the generating machine flows only through the tissue which is between the two electrodes on the handpiece; these electrodes start and complete the electrical circuit. Hence, with bipolar delivery, no current flows through the rest of the body, In all cases of radiofrequency delivery types, it is the resistance to the current flow in the tissue, not the electrode that generates the heating effect.

What can Radiofrequency (RF) energy treat?
Pure RF energy alone is primarily used to treat skin laxity by facial tightening, and is best suited to patients with mild to moderate sagging of facial tissues, usually those in their mid thirties to fifties, with any skin colour.

It is commonly used to treat the forehead (lift brows and tightens forehead skin), under the eyes (thickens skin and tightens and lifts the upper cheek skin), cheeks (lifts slightly and diminishes enlarged pores), mid-face, jaw line (diminishes jowling and sagging along the jaw line), and the neck (tightens skin and diminishes wrinkling of the neck).

However, if there is a significant amount of redundant or sagging skin, often seen in older patients over sixty, this procedure may not show a significant enough improvement and a traditional mid-face, face or brow lift operation may be recommended in order to remove the excess skin, therefore achieving a better result.
