Galvanic skin stimulation, also known as galvanic facials or Galvanic micro-resurfacing, is a technology that uses electric voltage to treat your skin. It's an alternative to chemical peels and other more invasive cosmetic procedures.
Galvanic facials are a relatively new procedure that helps improve the texture of the skin by using small electric currents to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin. These electrical impulses help build new collagen fibers, resulting in smoother, tighter skin with visibly reduced pores and wrinkles.
During a galvanic treatment, the aesthetician applies a topical treatment with mild acid on your face before administering the galvanic current. The galvanic treatment will not harm healthy skin cells but targets different levels of wrinkles.
What To Expect During Your Chi Energy (Galvanic) Facial
At Dr. Alicia Abeyta, the procedure starts with the application of a specialized pre-treatment gel with a negative charge on the patient's clean, dry skin to cleanse the pores. After removing the gel using a damp washcloth, another gel (iontophoresis) which is positively charged, is applied and left on. The practitioner uses a galvanic messenger that conducts mild galvanic currents directly onto the skin.
Our galvanic facial lasts approximately 1 hour and is relatively a painless procedure. However, a mild tingling sensation or twitching of the muscles is normal.
