Platinum Galvanic System by Essai

This Galvanic Unit is a versatile tool for the esthetician. Its uses include introducing water soluble products into the skin through a process called "ionization", stimulating nerves, and increasing the blood supply to close follicles after facial treatments. It's also beneficial for desincrustation of the skin, making extraction of comedones and pustules much easier.

  • Four Electrodes
    • Two Rollers
    • Two Concave Rod Stimulators
  • Durable Steel Construction, Lasts for Years
Galvanic current is used for the following functions:
  • Disincrustation - During disincrustation, the galvanic current creates a chemical reaction that softens or emulsifies (liquefies) sebum, turning it into soap (a process known as saponification). Soap is made of fat and lye (sodium hydroxide). After liquefying the sebum, the electrical current from the galvanic unit interacts with the salts (sodium chloride) in the skin, creating the chemical sodium hydroxide or lye. The lye and fatty liquefied sebum combine to form a soapy substance that helps dissolve grease deposits, debris, and blackheads in the hair follicles, making comedones much easier to extract. Disincrustation facilitates deep pore cleansing and is particularly beneficial for acne or oily skin.
  • Iontophoresis means the introduction of ions. It assists the penetration of water-soluble products into the skin. There are 2 types of iontophoresis:
    1. Cataphoresis uses galvanic current flowing from the positive to the negative pole to force acidic products into the deeper tissues.
    2. Anaphoresis uses galvanic current flowing from the negative to the positive pole to force liquids that are bases (alkaline) into the tissues.
The positive current (+ anode) is used to penetrate products that are slightly acidic. It produces an acidic reaction that helps soothe nerves, decrease the blood supply, and close pores. Acidic products have a positive polarity. Since two positives tend to repel each other, products with a positive polarity are driven into the tissues.

The negative current (- cathode) is used to penetrate products that are slightly basic. It produces an alkaline reaction that helps stimulate nerves, increase the blood supply, and soften the tissues. Basic products have a negative polarity. Since two negatives tend to repel each other, products with a negative polarity are driven into the tissues.
