What makes the galvanic facial special? The facial is performed with a galvanic electronic machine that stimulates the skin and helps remove congestion by improving circulation. This enables the skin to better retain moisture and soothing treatments. According to chiactivate.wordpress.com, most expensive skin care products stay only on the top of the skin, but with the help of the galvanic facial, the skin will absorb your treatment into it's deeper layers. You can enjoy your galvanic facial at your favourite salon or with your own galvanic machine at home.
