I have heard a bit about Galvanic Desincrustation and I wanted to know more so I watched this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xyu4vN3wrHY. I enjoyed this explanation because it was easy to understand, but it also gave detailed information about the science behind the procedure.
When used on the negative polarity, galvanic current is used to soften sebum and dilate follicles in order to make extraction easier. First, you attach the passive electrode to the client. In this video, she places it under the client's back. Make sure it is totally covered in a moist sponge in order to have good contact with the skin. Inform the client that they may experience a warming/tingling sensation and a metallic taste in their mouth. Cover the tweezers entirely in cotton soaked in desincrustation solution. Next, spread the same solution on the face. If you are doing the ears, place cotton balls soaked in the solution inside the ears. Place the electrode on the skin, and THEN turn up the current. Keep the tweezers electrode constantly moving, and don't let it lose contact with the skin. The total face should be covered in about 3-4 minutes.
