The Galvanic Spa System is a hand-held device that uses low level galvanic (electric) current to facilitate the transport of key ingredients to the skin. The current that is used is a micro-current that is biologically compatible to the normal electrical charges in cells. It is a very small current. It would take over a million of these devices to light a 40 watt bulb. Galvanic or microcurrent has been around for over 50 years and has a large body of scientific studies to back it up.
I used to get these treatments from an aesthetician and they cost about $100 for one treatment so this device, even with the monthly auto-ship for the special gels that you use, adds up to be cheaper and also much more convenient in the long run.
The application of micro-current is used to facilitate healing in medicine. It enhances the absorption of nutrients, increases the speed of healing, increases oxygenation to the cells and helps to eliminate waste products just to name a few benefits. When used on the skin it helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles, lift, and improve cleansing, hydration, circulation and radiance. It is also not just a temporary fix. Over time, it delivers lasting benefits to the skin.
The treatment is done in two phases. Each phase takes about 3 or 4 minutes so the total time is about 8 to 10 minutes by the time you apply the gel, do the treatment, wipe it off and do the second phase of treament. The first phase is called the pre-treatment cycle. During this Pre-treatment cycle the Galvanic instrument and the pre-treatment gel are negatively charged. These negative charges repel each other, delivering the gel into the skin which binds to and lifts out impurities. This takes about 3 minutes.
The second phase or the treatment phase uses a positively charged gel and the instrument is set to the positive charge. These positive charges repel each other helping to deliver the beneficial ingredients to the skin. It also attracts the remaining negatively charged impurities from the pre-treatment cycle, drawing them out of the skin. This is about a 3 minute cycle. You just wipe off the gel and then apply your treatment products.
I have not used any other products from Nu-Skin but this product delivers what it promises and is a great investment for your skin. The recommended use is 2x a week. On the days that I use this, I do not do my DPL light treament (see my home page for more data on this collagen building light). You can use them both but then you are adding more time to your routine. So by substituting this 2 x a week for the light therapy I do not add any extra time to my routine and I still get good results.
