NATURAL SCIENCE FOR YOUR SKIN

Monu galvaderm
The Galvaderm Facial gently combines galvanic and high frequency current using pure plant extracts. This balances and protects, giving the skin a healthy and youthful appearance. This electro-therapy treatment has been designed to deep cleanse, assist cellular renewal and introduce balancing Monu preparations deep within the skin.

NATURAL SCIENCE FOR YOUR SKIN

The Monu Galvaderm Electrotherapy Treatment is a complete facial treatment which deep cleanses through desincrustation and re-hydrates through iontophoresis. It also helps to normalise the skin and improve cellular renewal whilst oxygenating the pores. Monu’s unique active ingredients are quickly absorbed by the skin, which effectively re-hydrates the tissues, slowing down the ageing process and conditioning the skin where needed.
Suitable for all skin types, this effective treatment will balance the skin by allowing active substances to penetrate, moisturise and regulate the skin’s metabolism. There are Galvaderm Facial, Eye, Neck, Bust, Collagen and Back Treatments as well as the Super Galvaderm which is a combination of facial and eye procedures, therefore providing the ultimate rejuvenating treatment.

A fusion of science and nature Assists cellular renewal Deep cleanses and balances the skin, bringing immediate results.

definitions
Galvanic Current:
The galvanic current is a direct current. Its strength remains constant and it has a safe, low voltage level. The Galvaderm machine has a patented circuit Constant Current Generator (CCG) - ensuring a constant flow of the set current no matter what the skin’s resistance. The galvanic current will ionise molecules that contain metallic atoms.

Desincrustation:
Desincrustation has the effect of removing excess sebum and wastes found in the epidermis. The alkali Sodium Hydroxide is produced under the cathode (-). This has several effects including: •Drying of the skin •Softening the build up of sebum •Breakdown of the keratinised cells in the superficial layers of the skin •Opens the pores and release blockages •Destroys the acid mantle Desincrustation is therefore used as a deep cleansing treatment.

High Frequency Current:
This is an alternating current that changes direction i.e. an oscillating current. When the high frequency current is applied to the skin, atoms in the Monu Galvanic Oxycreme (the stabilised oxygen molecules) separate to release free oxygen atoms. This gas is bactericidal and kills microbes at the same time as inhibiting the growth of bacteria.

Direct High Frequency:
This setting is stimulating and drying and generally used on an oily skin. However its use can be adjusted to suit a dry mature skin type by reducing the time to a maximum of five minutes.

Iontophoresis:
During iontophoresis the active substances in the gels are introduced into the skin by the current where they absorb to a deep level. Hydrochloric Acid is produced at the anode (+) which has the following effects: •The acid mantle is restored due to the formation of hydrochloric acid •It has a tightening and firming effect on the skin •Tissue fluid moves away from the anode •Revitalises the tissues •Improves the oxygen levels

High Frequency:
When using this setting, check the comfort of the client and the skin’s reaction, keeping current low for dry skin. The machine is very quiet when in operation. It is important not to lift the high frequency electrode off the skin when the current is switched on or a slight shock could occur.
