In the first place, electrical facial treatments are commonly referred to as electrotherapy. As a matter of fact, these treatments are often referred to as modalities. In addition, each modality produces a different effect on the skin.
Equally important, the electrode is an applicator for directing the electric current from the machine to the client's skin.
By the same token, it is usually made of carbon, glass, or metal. In the same fashion, each of the modality we use (except for tesla high frequency) requires two electrodes. As a matter of fact, one negative and one positive- to conduct the flow of electricity through the body.
Equally important, Galvanic Currents create two different chemical reactions depending if Anode (active electrode) and Cathode (Inactive electrode) end being used.
As a matter of fact, Galvanic Current is one of the most used modality. mainly because, it is used for unblocking clogged pores and to drive solutions deeper into the epidermis (The top layer of our skin).
Also, it is a constant and direct current (DC), having a positive and negative pole, the products chemical changes when it passes through the tissues and fluids of the body.
By the same tokes, Galvanic Current works by creating two different chemical reactions, depending on the polarity (Positive/Negative) that is being used at the time.
In the same fashion, active Electrode is the electrode used in the area to be treated.
Not to mention, the Inactive Electrode is the opposite pole from the active electrode. Equally important, note that the effects produced by the positive pole are the exact opposite of those produced by the negative pole.
CAUTION! We will not use galvanic current on the skin with broken capillaries or pustular acne conditions, or on a client with high blood pressure or metal implants.
By the same token, Iontophoresis (eye-ahn-toh-foh-REE-sus) (ionization) is a term for the process of introducing water-soluble products into the skin with the use of electric currents, such as that from the positive and negative poles of a galvanic machine.
Equally important, Cataphoresis (kat-uh-fuh-REE-sus) forces acidic substances into deeper tissues by using galvanic current from the positive toward the negative pole.
By the same token, Anaphoresis (an-uh-for-EES-sus) is the process of forcing alkaline liquids into the tissues from the negative towards the positive pole.
Equally important, Desincrustation (des-in-krus-TAY-shun) is a process that uses the negative pole to soften and emulsify grease deposits (oil) and blackheads in the hair follicles.
As a matter of fact, this process is frequently used to treat acne, milia (small, white cyst-like pimples), and comedones (blackheads and whiteheads).
By the same token, Faradic Current is an alternating and interrupted current that produces a mechanical reaction without a chemical effect. Not to mention, it is used during scalp and facial manipulations to cause visible muscular contractions. Equally important, benefits derived from faradic current include

Sinusoidal (sy-nuh-SOYD-ul) Current is similar to faradic current and is also used during scalp and facial manipulations. It is an alternating current that produces mechanical contractions that tone the muscles. Sinusoidal current has the following advantages:
CAUTION! We will not use faradic or sinusoidal current if it causes pain or discomfort, if the face is very ruddy (red in color), or if you have gold-filled teeth, high blood pressure, broken capillaries, or pustular skin conditions. Lastly, we will never use faradic or sinusoidal currents longer than 15 to 20 minutes.
Microcurrent is an extremely low level of electricity that mirror's the body's own natural electrical impulses. Through electrical stimulation, microcurrent works by mimicking the way that the brain relays messages to the muscles.
It is reported to aid in the healing and repairing of tissue and to influence cellular activity. The goal is to speed up the body's natural regenerative processes, using the proper amount of low-level current, less than 400uA's.
Microcurrent requires manual manipulation to reeducate the muscles but it does not microcurrent can be effective in the following ways:
When used in treatments for aging skin, the results may be a firmer appearance of the skin. Microcurrent treatments have also been shown to benefit stroke and paralysis patients.
As with all electrical equipment, microcurrent should be used on people with pacemakers, epilepsy, pregnancy, phlebitis, or thrombosis; or on anyone currently "under a doctor's care."
Tesla's High-Frequency Current is a thermal or heat-producing current with a high rate of oscillation or vibration. It is commonly called the violet ray and is used for both scalp and facial treatments.
Tesla currently does not produce muscle contractions, and its effects can be either stimulating or soothing, depending on the method of application.
The electrodes are made from either glass or metal, and only one electrode is used to perform a service. Here are some benefits using Tesla's high-frequency current.
CAUTION! Tesla high-frequency current should bot be used on clients who are pregnant; suffer from epilepsy (seizures) or asthma; or have high blood pressure, a sinus blockage, a pacemaker, or metal implants. The client should avoid any contact with metal, such as chair arms, jewelry, and metal bobby pins, during the treatment. A burn may occur if such contact is made.
As with all facial treatments, it is important to take a full history before performing electrotherapy. If your client has any of the following conditions, it is not advisable to treat them with electrotherapy:
Chemical peels have a large number of benefits, some that can be noticed, and some that subtly occur under the surface of the skin. For example:
Of course, you should definitely text me, if you have any questions before coming in for your first/next peel treatment. Lastly, please stop all retinol use at least 5 days prior to your peel treatment. I hope you've enjoyed this Customized Chemical Peel Difference blog article.

I’m a Certified Skin Care Specialist, licensed aesthetician, and nail technician. My journey to becoming a beauty expert goes back to 2010 with my own personal struggle with acne. It is through my work learning how to first improve my own skincare, and then my passion to bring this knowledge to others, that I came to truly understand this guiding principle: Beauty is a state of mind as much as a physical way of being. www.LuxuryLotusSpa.com/About
