You may think of a skin care treatments as being all about of facials, waxing, and microdermabrasion. However, more and more frequently I am asked about the use of electric current for skin care. Most often, my clients ask about the benefits of something called galvanic current.

Galvanic current (also called micro-current or iontophoresis) is a painless and non-invasive process of pushing high concentrations of charged particles deeper into the skin’s layers. This process has long been used in medical settings as a way of enhancing the penetration of medications into injured tissues. When used for the purpose of skin care, nutrients and antioxidants such as Vitamin A or Vitamin C can get much deeper into your skin and work more effectively to change your cells at the molecular level.

Depending on the nutrients and the polarity used (positive or negative), this process can produce a variety of beneficial effects on your skin and under lying tissues. Results may be seen after as little as one treatment. Galvanic current may be used to:

• Stimulate the production of collagen and elastin
• Boost the penetration of vitamins and nutrients
• Reduce age spots
• Remove impurities and congestion
• Promote circulation
• Tighten and firm skin
• Promote radiant skin
