What Is Galvanic Facial ?
Skin therapists call this procedure a ‘non-surgical facelift’ that gives you youthful skin without having to undergo any surgical procedure or poke needles into it. It involves using a low-level current to infuse medication into your skin. In other words, a galvanic facial uses medium-amperage direct current to stimulate your skin cells, soften your skin, and drive medicines or creams deep into the layers of your skin. This is done to improve the hydration levels of and blood circulation to your face, thereby making it more radiant. And don’t worry! It’s quite painless – you won’t even feel a thing.
- Clean your face and neck thoroughly with the cleanser.
- Pat dry and spritz on your favorite toner.
- Apply the treatment gel (as directed on the kit) on one half of your face and neck. Set the timer (in case the facial machine doesn’t have a timer).
- Wet your hands and then hold the device. Once you press the start button, touch the end of the machine to your skin where you have applied the gel and move it around.
- Stop when the timer goes off. Repeat the same steps on the other side of your face and neck.
- Once done, remove the remaining gel from your face with a wet cloth or towel. Apply a face serum or moisturizer once you are done

Minimizes Fine Lines And Wrinkles
Age and constant exposure to the sun and dust can take a toll on your skin. You won’t even notice the fine lines and wrinkles beginning to creep up on your face. Treating yourself to a galvanic facial once in a while rejuvenates your skin, restores the balance, reduces fine lines and wrinkles, and tightens your skin. It is also beneficial in preventing premature signs of aging.When you are stressed, it is evident on your face. No, I am not talking about frowning and squinting. I’m talking about the effect of stress on your skin. Coupled with lack of proper care and other external factors, your skin tends to lose elasticity and sag. The galvanic current that is passed through your skin during the treatment helps in tightening it. This revives your aging skin and makes it firm again.
Detoxifies Your Skin
You can’t deny the fact that your skin feels great and relaxed after every facial session. But, apart from the relaxation, a galvanic facial has something more to offer than conventional facials. The electric currents enable lymph drainage and stimulate your skin. This improves your skin’s natural ability to cleanse itself of harmful toxins. Moreover, the facial draws out toxins from deep within your skin, making your face look brighter and healthier.
Boosts Blood Circulation And Oxygen Levels In The Skin
A galvanic facial boosts the production of fresh skin cells and collagen. As a result, the new cells replace the older ones much faster. which, in turn, increases oxygen supply to your face. Oxygen makes your skin feel fresher and tighter and supports moisture retention.
Helps In Preventing Acne
The galvanic facial, especially the desincrustation process, targets the hair follicles and clogged pores. It extracts all the impurities stuck in your skin pores, leaving them clean. This helps in reducing and preventing acne.
I am not saying that this treatment will make you fair. Don’t carry that notion. When your skin is thoroughly cleansed, it looks clear and bright. That’s because harmful toxins are eliminated from your skin. The negative ions in the current trap all the impurities, toxins, and dirt. This, in turn, gives you a clearer and brighter complexion.
Thoroughly Moisturizes Your Skin
Worried that your moisturizing face cream is not working properly? The fact is that the product does not penetrate the layers of your skin. Moreover, your skin may not be able to retain moisture. A galvanic facial helps resolve this issue by removing dead skin cells and promoting cell regeneration. This revitalizes your skin, making it more elastic and increasing its moisture retention.
Better Product Penetration
Galvanic current contains negative ions, and the treatment gel (containing anti-aging and other ingredients) that is applied to your skin contains positive ions. The current pushes the products deeper into your skin. The products work hard in neutralizing the toxins and harmful free radicals in your skin. The deep tissues and cells within your skin layer are where the products work best.
Calms And Soothes Your Skin
Not only does aging turn your skin into a canvas of fine lines, age spots, and wrinkles, it also makes it rough to touch. A galvanic facial eases the facial tissues and muscles that get stiff with aging. When the muscles and tissues are relaxed, more blood and oxygen are carried to the skin cells. The pH balance of the skin is also restored, making it soft and smooth.
Sounds promising, isn’t it? But before you rush to book your appointment, there are some more things you need to know. Not everyone can opt for a galvanic facial. Why? It’s because certain factors make you a weak candidate for this facial.
