Galvanic Body Treatment
Galvanic is an electrical service which can be applied to both the face and body. A galvanic body treatment services cellulite and sluggish lymphatic circulation. The combination of the physiological effects and of the penetration of active therapeutic ingredients produces an immediate improvement in the appearance of the skin.
Galvanic body treatments are used to tone muscles, promote blood circulation, increase cell metabolism and activate enzymes. This treatment helps healing after surgical and non-surgical procedures and improves the quality and firmness of skin.
What are the chemical effects of a Galvanic Body treatment ?
The galvanic current stimulates metabolism within skin tissues and additonally within the localised movement of tissue fluids through cell membranes. Tissue fluids are attracted to the cathode, which may help to improve the appearance of lumpy tissue.
The deeper blood vessels dilate due to the stimulation of the superficial capillaries. The whole area becomes warm but the erythema is greatest under the negative electrode.
What are the prospective results of a Galvanic body treatment ?
reduced skin redness
improved cellulite appearance
enables penetration of active ingredients
stimulation of blood and lymphatic circulation to help improve slow circulation
improved lymphatic drainage
improved muscle tone
Galvanic body treatments conducted for cellulite reduction utilise a low-current that breaks up fluid and fat cells to increase movement within the lymphatic system. The lymphatic system is responsible for removing waste and fighting against infection. As cellulite conditions grasp excess waste in a concentrated mass, stimulation of the lymphatic system in the applied area will aid in eliminating the unwanted products by mobilising them.
Once the area of cellulite becomes more ambulant, it is easier for the body to remove some of the waste through the lymphatic system in addition to the diuretic effect this treatment enforces on the tissues.
Specialised gels are incorporated containing natural ingredients, this will help in eliminating toxins whilst also decongesting the area.
Treatments are recommended in a course thus expanding the effects. For a cellulite treatment to gain maximum effects, an improvement in diet, exercise and body care starting at home must be considered.
Cellulite may form due to poor elimination, therefore drinking plenty of water is essential.
