Technological developments have an impact on every aspect of our modern lives from the way we communicate to the way we travel and it increasingly seems to be having an impact on our beauty regimes. Once such way in which technology is helping in our pursuit of beauty and wellbeing perfection is with the increased popularity of the Galvanic Facial. This treatment may sound scientific and complex but it is widely available in a number of London salons and is a relatively simple non-invasive treatment that can work wonders for your skin.
A Galvanic Facial is where a small device, about the size of an electric razor, is used with a special toning gel across the skin on the face and neck. This toning gel is used as a conductor for the low voltage current that the galvanic device pulses into the skin. The treatment takes about 10 minutes and is completely painless, but in that short amount of time the little device accomplishes a lot. One of the pulses sent into the skin is negatively charged which helps to draw out impurities from the skin. The other pulses are positively charged which pushes the benefits from the enriched toning gel in to the skin. In conjunction with one another, these two pulses help to re-align the electrical charges in the skin so that it is more balanced.
There are a number of benefits from a Galvanic Facial aside from the balancing of electrical charges in the skin. Firstly, the treatment helps for provide greater oxygenation and nourishment for the skin by increasing the blood flow and the effectiveness of the products used during and after the treatment. Secondly, the negative charged ionic pulse helps to draw out and remove toxins, so the skin is instantly brighter and detoxed. Lastly, the treatment tightens the skin and so it is great for those that wish to remove wrinkles and prevent free-radical damage. So, after a Galvanic Facial your skin will be left looking instantly more glowing, brighter, tighter and in the long term you will suffer from less wrinkles and fewer skin impurities. Galvanic treatments are also increasingly being used all over the body and can even be used to help thicken and strengthen hair. It won’t be long before an extensive range of Galvanic treatment types are on every salons service list.
Despite the technological basis of the treatment, the size and ease of use of the device mean that the Galvanic Facial is widely available across London salons alongside regular facial treatments. One such salon is Enhance at Harley Street that offers a luxury 1-hour package that uses a Galvanic treatment to enhance the effects of Microdermabrasion. If you would like to try a Galvanic treatment stand alone then head to Ginger and Juniper near Oxford Circus which offers treatments anywhere from one to three hours in length, definitely the place to go for a pamper session. Plus, the salon owner Peter was a finalist in the Holistic Therapist of The Year 2014, so you know that you are going to be in good hands. Lastly, if you are in the Mayfair area pop into Hiro Miyoshi Hair and Beauty where Duleesha can offer you a full rejuvenating facial package including a Galvanic facial treatment.
