Why Is Galvanic Treatment So Popular

Galvanic Facial Treatment Explained

This facial treatment is often applied by using metal probe sliding over the skin with a specialized serums or ampules. The serum or lotion has two purposes:

  1. To make the facial metal probe slide smoothly over your face
  2. The lotion or serum contains nutrition that can be absorbed by your skin using the galvanic machine

Galvanic treatment is a very successful skin care treatment. It’s extremely popular due to the excellent results shown on TV. It can be used for different skin types and conditions.

Fyola facial machine is one the most well know galvanic machine since 2006. I have been studying different galvanic devices and found the Fyola the most promising and affordable one.

To get the best result with galvanic treatment two different basic steps are required.

Cleansing Step with Ultrasound, also called Desincrustation

The first treatment is designed to deep cleanse the pores of the skin and degrease oily areas. Usually a cleansing gel is applied. This cleansing step is used to remove the oily skin areas such as acne and pimples. Some skin care specialist’s call this step Desincrustation.  This will open up the pores allowing skin ingredients to be absorbed easily.

Nutrition Step with Galvanic, also called Iontophoresis

The second treatment involves the re-balancing of the skin from oily to dry including sensitive.

Now you need to apply a serum or organic lotion with rich vitamins. No oil ingredients please!  So no cream, because galvanic current CANNOT penetrate oil based products

The galvanic machine will use positive and negative ions to push the nutrition into you skin.

This galvanic treatment enhances the skin absorption. Depending on type of serum, it will help to re-balance, normalize and hydrate the skin. This is a called the Iontophoresis.

Carefully selecting your serum or lotion.

As the galvanic machine is extremely powerful, the result can be affected by the facial bottle that you have chosen. Again, no oil based products. it won’t work with galvanic current.

I recommend the Fyola toning gel. This is a water-based gel specially formulated for the galvanic machine. it contains full of organic ingredients such Aleo Vera, Elder flower, nettle Leaf and more…

By the way, this Fyola toning gel can also be use with other galvanic or ultrasound facial machine as well. If you have an older beauty device that has the galvanic feature, but missing the treatment gel you can give Fyola toner gel a try.

  1. This article is not quite accurate. First you use the negative node called the cathode to open the pores and extract out the dirt and excess oil and it open up the pores.

    Then you use the positve pole called the anode to push in the serum or rich product of you like. Serums are great because they are much more concentrated.

    Do not lift up the metal roller from the client during treatment…it will give them a mild shock if you do. So when you turn on the machine, make sure the product is on the face. Remember negative first and positive sencond.

    Don’t forget to ground the device. I do this by slipping the negative node under the client’s shoulder. This way the client does not have to hold onto the device and they don’t get nervous.

    The galvanic devices that are sold to the public are not explained well and I am not sure how well they work. But this in the hands of a trained esthetician is a marval. Unfortuneately, very few of us do this proceedure because it is not taught very well in school. And, most of the 47 women in my class would not touch it. I was trained by a teacher personally, and well what can I say? I give the best facials around.

    • You are talking about those big professional galvanic machine at the spa’s.

      This is an galvanic machine for home use. It has a very low current and is battery operated. There is no need for grounding. You do need to hold the ion part at the back of the machine to make sure the ions can flow through your skin when using it.

    • I just purchased the galvanic machine for professional use. I totally agree with you that these machines were not covered well in my esthetics training. Do you have more detailed information where I can get more training before I begin to offer these treatments? Also is it true that only water soluble products can be used?

      • Hi,ive just ordered a gslvanic and high frequency machine. I did do it at college over 15 years ago and totally forgot how to use it properly and what products and gel to use with it. I would be greateful for your help in using it

    • Dear April,

      Thank you for your comprehensive explanation. You are right to point out that in school it is a chapter in a book. I actually have a galvanic machine that i am now going to use. My questions is that i would like to use it on myself. Is that possible with a professional unit?

      Thank you.

      Thank you

    • Dear madam,
      I have gone through your explanation for the iontophoresis treatment and it seems to be good, but you have not mentioned the type of lotions to be used in this process, whether they should be conductive or postive and negatively charged, lotions for cleaniing the skin and delivering the medicine.
      I would highly appreciate, if you could explain it further.
      Actually we are seller of equipment and we have to train the persons, for right use of the machine. Our principal are also not explaining it well.
      With best regards,

    • Hello !
      I just have a question , so you said to use negative first and and then positive , so what if the client have dry skin ? Because the first step is disincrustation , so should I only do the second step which is Iontophoresis ? . And I’m talking about the pro machine .
      Thank you !

    • hi. Thanks for the very useful input.

      Can u recommend me a device to buy as well as the serum to be used?
      Thanks in advance.

  2. I am a skin care specialist and remember reading about galvanic in school. It was many years ago! I have been introduced to the home version and have been thinking about selling the product. I am searching and trying to educate myself about all there is to know about galvanic treatment for at home use and everything there is to know. I don not remember using galvanic in school though.I just remember reading and having to know about it and that is all! I believe it is of course more popular in Europe.I would welcome any input on there experience with galvanic treatments. thank you.

    • Hi, Ive heard about this and apparently i have seen a demonstration ,it is quite a good product ,i was thinking of selling this product myself.

  3. Hi,i read you page about the how can i use the fyola galvaniv and i just finished buying fyola galvanic and i want to know the name of the lotions and the serum and where can i get it because the lotion and serum is for whitening and wrinkles. i read that i can not use only the gel.for you attention tanks.maria n medina .i hope you can answer me

  4. Thank you for all your feedback. In respond to your questions:

    You don’t need to touch the ground with this portable galvanic machine. Yes, it can be used at home, just like a professional galvanic machine.

    The galvanic machine starts to emit galvanic ion when you hold the facial machine and rub it slowly over your face. Make sure you slide it slowly (1 or 2 second over each spot), so the galvanic ion has enough time to transmit through your skin.

    This Fyola facial machine is designed for home use.

    – Blinking red light — what’s that?

    The red light at the back of the facial machine is blinking when you rub the facial head over your skin. It’s NOT supposed to turn on continuously, it’s only blinking. To save the battery.

    So don’t be confused, that the Galvanic ion is not working.
