Galvanic Therapy

Galvanic treatment in cosmetics involves the use of a low-level electric current to improve the penetration of skincare products, stimulate blood flow, and enhance various skin-related concerns. This non-invasive and painless procedure has been utilized in the skincare industry for several decades. Here’s a detailed overview of galvanic treatment in cosmetics:

Key Components of Galvanic Therapy:

1. Galvanic Machine:

– The treatment typically involves the use of a galvanic machine, which consists of a small handheld device with positive and negative poles. The machine produces a direct current (DC) that is applied to the skin.

2. Positive and Negative Polarity:

– Galvanic treatment involves two phases: the positive phase and the negative phase. Each phase serves a specific purpose in addressing different skincare concerns.

Phases of Galvanic Treatment:

1. Desincrustation (Negative Phase):

– Desincrustation is the first phase of galvanic treatment and uses the negative pole. During this phase, a water-based, alkaline solution is applied to the skin. The negatively charged electrode helps to soften and emulsify sebum and impurities in the skin, making it easier to remove.

– Desincrustation is particularly beneficial for individuals with oily or acne-prone skin as it helps to clear blocked pores and reduce the appearance of blackheads.

2. Iontophoresis (Positive Phase):

– Iontophoresis is the second phase and uses the positive pole. In this phase, a water-based, acidic solution or a treatment product with positive ions is applied to the skin. The positively charged electrode facilitates the penetration of the product into the deeper layers of the skin.

– Iontophoresis is often used to deliver beneficial ingredients, such as vitamins, antioxidants, and hydrating substances, into the skin. It enhances the absorption of these ingredients for improved skincare results.

Cosmetic Applications of Galvanic Therapy:

1. Deep Cleansing:

– The desincrustation phase helps to deeply cleanse the skin by softening sebum and impurities, making it an effective treatment for individuals with congested or acne-prone skin.

2. Product Penetration:

– Iontophoresis enhances the penetration of skincare products, allowing active ingredients to reach deeper layers of the skin. This can maximize the effectiveness of serums, masks, and other topical treatments.

3. Hydration:

– Galvanic treatment can be used to enhance hydration by facilitating the absorption of hydrating ingredients into the skin. It is beneficial for individuals with dry or dehydrated skin.

4. Improving Blood Circulation:

– The gentle electric current stimulates blood circulation, promoting oxygenation and nutrient delivery to the skin cells. Improved blood flow contributes to a healthier complexion.

5. Reducing Fine Lines and Wrinkles:

– Galvanic treatment may help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by improving skin hydration, circulation, and the absorption of anti-aging ingredients.

6. Calming and Soothing:

– The treatment can have a calming and soothing effect on the skin, making it suitable for individuals with sensitive or reactive skin.


1. Professional Administration:

– Galvanic treatments is performed by Dr. Sayali. She is trained in the proper use of galvanic machines.

2. Customization:

– The choice of solutions used during the desincrustation and iontophoresis phases can be customized based on individual skin concerns and treatment goals.

3. Number of Sessions:

– The recommended number of galvanic treatment sessions may vary depending on individual needs and skincare goals. A series of sessions may be recommended for optimal results.

4. Compatibility with Other Treatments:

– Galvanic treatment can be combined with other cosmetic procedures or skincare treatments to enhance overall results. However, it’s essential to discuss the compatibility of treatments with Dr. Sayali.

5. Post-Treatment Care:

– Following galvanic treatment, individuals may be advised to use specific skincare products and follow a recommended skincare routine to maintain the benefits of the treatment.

Galvanic treatment provides a versatile approach to address various skincare concerns, and its effectiveness can be enhanced when performed by trained professionals. Individuals interested in galvanic treatment should consult us to assess their skin needs, discuss treatment options, and ensure a personalized approach for optimal results.
