Galvanic spas are gradually gaining their popularity, as a procedure for getting rid of dead skin cells, thus, resulting in youthful and refreshed skin. It has been claimed to be a new breakthrough in facial skin care. This is a treatment regime that relies on changes in the electric charge of a galvanic spa system to get rid of impurities in the skin. The best part is that this kit can be purchased, and the treatment can be done at home. However, there still are doubts regarding the effectiveness, and results of this beauty treatment procedure.
The Work Mechanism
The treatment involves the application of the galvanic spa pre-treatment facial gel, followed by the galvanic spa treatment facial gel. During the first step, both the galvanic instrument, and the pre-treatment gel are negatively charged. As negative charges repel each other, the negative charge of the galvanic instrument tends to allow the ingredients to enter deep into the skin. This pre-treatment gel contains ingredients that help soothe and tone the skin. These negatively charged ingredients bind with impurities that are present in the skin, thus making them attain the same charge.
Then, during the treatment cycle, both the treatment gel and galvanic instrument are positively charged. These positive charges repel each other, and thus, help deliver this gel into the skin. This gel contains ingredients that help the skin to recover from stress. The positively charged galvanic instrument, now attracts the remaining negatively charged impurities from the skin, drawing them out by magnetic force, leaving the skin feeling softer and fresher.
Does it Work?
When this treatment was used on women, quite a few of them claimed to feel a 'difference' in their skin, almost after the very first session. Others claimed to have felt no difference even after repeated treatment sessions. The fact is that each individual's skin is different, and hence, each person tends to react in a different manner to any kind of treatment, or even product. Although this process helps to get rid of impurities in the skin, there is no proof that it leads to firming of the skin, or cause any kind of collagen remodeling.
Hence, one cannot make claims regarding its efficacy as a skin firming treatment or acne scar removal procedure. Furthermore, it has been claimed that better results can be observed with repeated sessions. Hence, some people may need to be more patient to see visible effects. This is because the skin of some people may tend to be more unyielding, or it may require some treatments that are slightly more intensive to bring about the desired results.
It is quite important to keep in mind that these spa treatment kits, always have, a warning sign saying that it is best to consult a physician before opting for this treatment, if the user is pregnant, epileptic, or wears metal braces or any kind of metal implant. The need for consulting a physician arises due to the fact that this treatment may affect the metallic components present in these devices. The results of this beauty procedure would always vary from person to person, and it would best to get all the information on this treatment, before opting for this procedure.
