basic unit combining the prime components for performing basic
electro-cosmetic facial therapy: micro-galvanic current. Iono-Wave is
designed for deep cleansing of the skin. The polarity changer switch in
front of the unit is to set either positive or negative pulses,
depending upon the treatment to be given. Through body galvanism is the
use of the movement of ions to stimulate the metabolism in the tissues.
This movement of ions ‘strip up’ the cells contents and
assists the passage of substances in and out of cells through cell
membranes. Stimulating the metabolism gives a ‘feeling of
well-being’ in the treatment area.
For galvanic therapy, a smooth direct current is required. It must flow
smoothly without interruption, pulses or ripples, which would probably
stimulate the ‘motor points’ of muscles and cause them to
twitch or contract. The direct current from a battery would be ideal.
However, because the stratum corneum, the horny layer of epidermis, has
a low water content and is with a layer of greasy sebum, it has a high
resistance, so a fairy high voltage is necessary to pass sufficient
current through it. Once through the stratum corneum, the current flows
quite easily in the body.
Helps in following treatments
- treats irritated and blocked skin
- treatment of acne etc.
- aids in firming massage treatments
