Galvanic Facial Treatments and the Benefits

This blog contains information about Galvanic facial treatments and what the benefits of the treatments are.


A Galvanic facial uses gentle and safe electrical currents to intensify the benefits of skincare products.  A Galvanic facial is regarded as a ‘non-surgical facelift’ as it boosts and improves the skin without surgery.  All treatments remove build-up and impurities in the skin.  Galvanic treatments tone up facial muscles, promote blood circulation and increases cell metabolism and activates enzymes. The treatment improves hydration levels and gives results of a more youthful, radiant glow with smoother and firmer skin.

The electrical current used during galvanic treatments aids in pushing skincare products into the deeper layers of your skin. Galvanic also aids in healing after surgical and non-surgical procedures. Galvanic facials are suitable to all skin types. A consultations is required prior to treatment to adapt the treatment to your needs. Just one session will make a difference to the look and feel of your skin and regular session will only intensify the results.

There are two types of treatments with Galvanic, there is Desincrustation and Iontophoresis.


Galvanic Desincrustation is a deep cleanse process where Galvanic current emulsifies and softens the sebum and keratin that is found in hair follicles. Which aids in a painless removal of blackheads and clogged pores. The process softens the skin and opens the pores for a deep cleanse it also aids in increasing blood circulation and bringing oxygen to the skin. The process is done before extractions. Benefits of the treatment are softened skin, softened compactions and keratin within the follicle and an increase in lymph and blood circulation.


Galvanic Iontophoresis pushes product deep into your skin. It is used to moisturise, soothe, decongest and detoxify the skin. Iontophoresis aids in improving skin texture as it tightens, firms and refines pores. The treatment penetrates active ingredients such as vitamins, antioxidants and peptides deeper into the skin beyond the superficial layer which dramatically improves absorption.
