What is a Galvanic facial and how does it work?
Microcurrent pulse equipment delivers minute electrical pulses designed to mirror the body’s own bio-electric field. Treatment should never be painful, is usually imperceptible, and at most is felt as mild tingling.
Whilst originally invented as a treatment for facial palsy, microcurrent has been used in aesthetics, where it is often known as facial toning or non-surgical face lifting, for its advantages in skin tightening and rejuvenation. Benefits include:
- Increasing blood and lymph circulation
- Enhancing the penetration of the active ingredients of skin care formulations
- Collagenesis and increasing elastin-production
- Increasing mitochondria activity and adenosine triphosphate (ATP) production
- Elevated protein synthesis, gluco-neogenesis and cell membrane transport
Galvanic Treatment with the OPERA LED Facemask
Galvanic current is an optional modality on the OPERA LED mask and is used in conjunction with hydrogel masks. It can be used as an independent treatment regime, or in combination with LED light therapy
When using the galvanic current option of the OPERA mask, treatment begins with the strongest energy setting (level 5) and reduced incrementally only if it causes discomfort or irritation.
The microcurrent pulses instantaneously open pores in the skin while the changing charge actively pushes nutrients and products (either from the hydrogel mask or other cosmetics) through the skin barrier and into the deeper layers of the epidermis
Treatment duration can vary from 5 to 30 minutes

Benefits of Galvanic Facial Treatments
- Skin nourishment.
- Skin cleansing.
- Toning of facial muscles.
- Decreasing wrinkles.
- Restoration of sun-damaged skin.
Providing Galvanic treatment as an addition to LED light therapy results in improved skin hydration, as well as the benefits generated by the specific LED mode chosen and any cosmetic products applied.
