1 GALVANIC AND MICROGALVANIC CURRENT
GALVANIC CURRENT
Galvanic current is a type of uninterrupted electrical
current.
IONISATION TECHNIQUES
In all ionisation techniques we must always consider
the following points:
1. The person that will receive the treatment must remove all metal objects
in direct contact with the skin (watches, bracelets, rings, necklaces,etc.)
This goes for braces too. The beautician should also verify wether the
client carries any metallic anticonceptive instrument).
2. If the skin to treat is very greasy, the grease will have to be removed
with a piece of cotton soaked in a neutral soap. This will not be
necessary in cases where a previous cleansing of the skin has been
carried out, as occcurs, for example, in descaling treatments. In these
cases an appropriate cleansing milk must be used (oil in water emulsion
with few fats and electrolytes).
3. When preparing the ionising product, if it comes in ampoule format,
break the two ends and pour the content into an appropriate bowl. Dilute
with distilled water.
In case of a gel or an electrolytic solution, use the quantity indicated by the
manufacturer. With your fingertips, moisten the areas to be treated with the
ionising solution, particularly for facial treatments.
4. If there are injuries, erosions, spots, etc. on the application area, these
parts must be covered with little pieces of paraffin paper before placing
the electrodes.
5. Place some pieces of double gauze, previously cut according to the shape
and size of the active electrodes and soaked in the ionising solution, on
the areas to treat. Once the gauze impregnated with the ionizsing
solution are placed, put the active electrodes on top. The electrodes are
EMA
14
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
to be protected with spongy tissue covers.
6. These active plates covers will have previously been soaked in distilled
water. Parasite ions are not introduced with distilled water, so the
current intensity will only introduce cosmetological ions soaking the
gauze. In addition, since the distilled water is hot, it will favour
peripheral blood flow and avoid an unpleasant contact with the skin. On
the other hand, the conduction of electricity is favoured precisely by this
same water heating.
7. The sheaths covering the indifferent plates or attracting electrodes have
to be soaked with a conducting solution. This solution may be tap water,
due to the salts that it contains. However, sometimes because of the
chemical treatment that the waters of the network undergo, they can
contain ions that are not too convenient and that may produce
alterations or allergies in the skin. For this reason it is preferable to use a
conductive solution to soak the sponges of these plates or indifferent
electrodes, for example, sodium chloride at 9 x 1,000, i.e. a physiological
solution, buffered or not, Ringer’s solution or, better still, a special
solution composed of salts of weak acids and bases, duly buffered.
8. When placing the plates, active and indifferent electrodes with their
corresponding soaked bands must be well fastened over the surface of
the skin and in the areas indicated according to the treatment to carry
out. For a correct fixing, elastic bands intended for that purpose must be
used, perfect adaptation to the relief of the surface of the skin must be
ensured, making sure that no metallic part is in contact with the skin and
that no corner of the electrodes is folded and that there is no space
between the skin and the plate.
9. Choose a colour of cable for each type of electrode, for example, as is
established conventionally, black for the active and red for the
indifferent. Before connecting them to the appliance, fix the banana
extremity to the metallic or rubber plates.
Very important: before connecting the cables to the machine, check that it
supports the voltage of the current available (125 or 220 volts) and that the
power control is set to the minimum, and to which terminal the positive and
negative polarities correspond.
10.
Connect the cables to the appliance following the instructions of the
corresponding technique and turn on the machine with the operating
handle.
EMA
15
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
11. Slowly turn the control of each outlet to the right until reaching the
intensity indicated by the technique.
12.
Sometimes a burning or tickling sensation may occur with a moderate
intensity, which can be the result of an inadequate moistening of the
sheaths, a bad positioning of the plates on the skin or a direct contact
between a metallic and the skin.
13. Intermittently, and during the treatment, check the work intensity of the
appliance, outlet by outlet, since the resistance that the body to the
passage of the current often reduces and the amperage could go up more
than is required. This increase in the intensity can also take place after a
few minutes of direct current, that is when the cosmetologic ions have
begun to orientate themselves and move towards the opposite electrode,
which facilitates the passing of the current, reducing the resistance and
increasing the intensity.
However, the appliances that are available nowadays like GALVANIC 1000
have anticipated this circumstance, in such a way that once the work
intensity of each of the outlets has been fixed, a special mechanism
prevents the intensity from varying, even though the resistance of the
human body decreases.
14.
This is due to a possible variation of the tension, and if we remember the
formula:
13. We can perfectly check that when the resistance varies, if there is an
automatic, compensable variation of the voltage, the intensity can be
maintained constant. This, however, is within some limits, and there are
some fluctuations of tens of milliamps that can be insignificant. Therefore,
in these cases, with these type of appliances, constant watch can now be
spread out more.
14. At the end of the session or when the technique indicates that a change of
polarity is necessary before cutting the passing of the current or before
working the inverter, the intensity of each outlet must be gradually reduced
to zero.
EMA
16
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
15.Once the treatment is over, with the controls to zero, the appliance can be
disconnected and the electrodes removed.
16. Once the electrodes have been removed, a slight reddening of the skin
may appear in the treated area. This is completely normal and shows that
there has been a real ionisation that will disappear after a short time.
17. At the end of the session, wash carefully covers and electrodes with soap
and water.
WORK INTENSITY AND DURATION OF THE TREATMENT
The manufacturer of the ionising product must indicate the work intensity and
the duration of the treatment. However, here are a few indications.
1. In the first place, the intensity to apply must be calculated according to
the surface of the electrodes that we are going to use, and always
starting from the basis that the minimum intensity will correspond to
0.02 milliamps per cm2 of active electrode and the maximum 0.05
milliamps per cm2 of active electrode (so that if an electrode has a
surface of 100cm2, the minimum work intensity with this electrode will be
0.02 by 100: 2 milliamps, and the maximum 0.05 by 100, 5 milliamps).
These minima and maxima depend on the resistance to the passing of the
current, specific to every individual..
2. Another consideration is the following. An ionisation treatment using a
current of 1 milliamp for 10 minutes lets penetrate half the number of
ions introduced in a 10-minute treatment of 2 milliamps with the same
product. Although this seems to indicate that the greater the intensity
applied, the easier it will be to ionise the product, we must take into
account that there is a limit in the minimum and maximum previously
mentioned.
3. When using small electrodes, for example during facial treatments, the
current is ten times lower, and minimum intensities will be used in case
of descaling and facelift. With this type of electrodes (roller, pencil, ball,
etc.) work intensities vary between1 and 2,5 mA.
EMA
17
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
4. The treatment does not lose its efficiency if we work at a lower intensity
for a longer time, that is to say, if we reduce the flow of ions and leave it
applied for longer. A 15-minute treatment with an intensity of 2 milliamps
produces the same effect than a 30-minute treatment of 1 milliamp.
Logically, it is necessary to take into account that these considerations
are different according to each type of ion, since the ionic velocity,
characteristic of each ion, plays a very important role.
Safety in the galvanic beauty treatment
Galvanic beauty treatment is very easy to perform, but in the hands of an
untrained or incompetent operator, it can cause intolerable and permanent
damage to the client. It is very important to take all the precautions for an
effective, comfortable and safe treatment.
Limits in the current intensity
0,3 milliamperes per square centimetre of contact electrode
(2 milliamperes per square inch).
The total of the current for:
Facial treatment must not exceed 3 milliamperes.
Body treatment must not exceed 8 milliamperes.
With the proper flow of current the client should feel a tickling sensation under
the electrodes. GALVANIC 6000 has an automatic control circuit for the
current, limiting it to these values.
Always start a treatment with a current inferior to the maximum tolerated,
until the resistance of the skin has stabilized by itself. The current is then
progressively increased to the working level.
Exceding an excessively high current can result in a burn. Alkaline burns under
the electrodes are very ugly, unpleasant and take a long time to heal. They
can leave a mark for life.
Worse still are the burns of the bones. An excess of current going through the
bone can carbonise it. A bone burn is very painful and heals slowely.
EMA
18
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
At the end of the beauty treatment
As we move towards the end of the treatment, the current must be gradually
reduced to allow the completion of the chemical effects and prevent any
chemical waste from remaining on the skin. Alternatively, reverse the current
for the last moments of the treatment to neutralise the chemical waste.
Finally, if the client notices that the treatment produces an unbearable
irritation in the skin, stop the treatment and reverse the current to neutralise
the cause of the irritation.
EMA

GALVANIC 6000
FACIAL DESCALING TREATMENT
We will begin giving specific instructions for a
descaling facial treatment.
Descaling is advised for excessively greasy skins.
Essentially, descaling is an ionisation allowing to
get rid of the excess of embedded fat. This deep
cleansing of the skin comes from the
saponification of fatty acids, important
components of the retained sebum, by means of
sodium, magnesium and potassium ions as well
as anions, above all carbonic, containing the
ionising solution. It also enables to reduce the
diameter of excessively dilated pores.
How to proceed
1. Put the ionising solution in an appropriate container.
2. Cover the metallic bar or indifferent electrode with cotton soaked in a
conductive solution, drain it and give it to the client who will hold it firmly in
his/her hand or place the indifferent plate on the arm with a conducting
solution or tap water.
3. Moisten the client’s face with cotton soaked in the ionising solution,
especially in the areas with a greater quantity of grease and open pores.
4. Dampen the active mobile electrode with the descaling solution. If using the
ball electrode, cover it with cotton.
5. Once the appliance has been checked in the way described previously,
connect the cable of the indifferent electrode, that is to say the one the
client will be holding in his/her hand, to the positive pole of the apparatus
and the cable of the active electrode to the negative pole.
6. Place the active electrode on the client’s forehead, connect the device and
turn the potentiometer control to the right until the milliammeter indicates
an intensity included between 1 and 2 milliamps, without any trouble for the
client. If the alter tolerates it, it can be raised up to 3 milliamps.
EMA
20
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
7. Once the circuit is established, move the active electrode consistently and
making circles around its axis, following the client’s face and the direction of
the facial muscles, without separating it from the skin. Do not go near the
eyes or the temples. Concentrate on the areas with more dilated pores and
an abundance of grease.
8. The session must not last more than three or four minutes.
9. Finally, slowly slide the electrode towards the neck, below the ear, while
slowly reducing the intensity of current down to 0 miliamps with the other
hand.
10.
Afterwards, disconnect GALVANIC 6000 and remove the electrodes.
11. Later, apply the appropriate beauty treatment to reestablish the pH.
Important notes
Do not perform descaling more than once a month. If the cutis is extremely
greasy, it can be carried out a maximum of twice a month. More sessions could
cause the so-called reactional fat secretion: the skin feeling excessively
cleaned off its grease, the sebaceous glands will produce a hypersecretion of
sebum causing the oppposite effect to that desired. Always end descaling with
a pH balancer to avoid a reactional fat secretion.
BEAUTY TREATMENT OF BLACKHEADS AND IMPURITIES OF THE SKIN
This trouble of the sebaceous follicles is characterised by a regional eruption in
adolescence, possibly caused by a state of sensitivity of the pilosebaceous
system due to many possible causes:
•
•
Superficial hyperkeratosis closing the pilosebaceous orifice.
Hyperplasia of the stratum corneum surrounding the pilosebaceous
follicle.
• Inflammatory process originated by the intrinsic composition of the
blackhead.
• Excessive production of sebum.
• Presence of impurities.
• Presence of staphylococcus albus.
• Bacterial lipases of the previous microorganisms that develop irritating
fatty acids.
• Endocrine factors.
Sick follicles are characterised by:
EMA
21
Start up manual
•
•
•
GALVANIC 6000
Folicular canals dilated and full of keratinolipids and microorganisms.
Presence of impurities in the skin.
Presence of hair making the cleansing of the follicle difficult.
In this type of follicles two different forms of blackheads can appear:
•
•
Those that can be expelled to the exterior by mechanical means, due
to the fact that the mouth of the follicle is dilated (pimples).
Those that are contained inside the follic and can not be expelled to
the exterior (sebaceous microcysts).
Although the doctor must be the one to diagnose and treat the imperfections
of the skin, especially with respect to the hormonal and antibiotic medication,
it is well known that beauticians collaborate very effectively in maintaining the
skin clean.
There is a common point between the different cabin treatments: the use of
keratolytic substances and/or regulating the sebaceous gland. Among the
substances we can mention sulphur, used for centuries. Its drawback is its
insolubility in cosmetic solvents and its action is therefore limited to its
superficial keratolytic effect.
However, there is a method allowing the passage of the sulphur through the
folicular canal up to the altered sebaceous gland.
We will proceed as follows:
1. Clean the skin with a lotion not containing any mineral oil.
2. Apply vapour with antiseptic aromatic substances (rosemary, sage, etc.).
3. Apply ionisation as described for descaling but using an electrolyte
solution with a predominance of sodium thiosulphate, since the
thiosulphate anion will penetrate through the negative pole, with the
client holding the positive pole in his/her hand. The intensity is comprised
between 1 and 2 milliamps.
4. Take care not to pass the electrode over the inflamed areas (papules,
pustules). The client will notice the characteristic smell of sulphur
liberated by ionisation. The session must last from 3 to 5 minutes and
should take place twice a month at the most. When treating impurities,
ionisation replaces descaling.
5. Afterwards, extraction of blackheads is carried out as is normal. If you
EMA
22
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
want, and to complete the effect of the sulphur, a face mask can be
applied.
6. Finally, disinfect the area and apply a lotion or azulene cream.
LIFTING
Another treatment where facial ionisation can be used is the facelift, cosmetic
or electronic. For this type of treatment ionising products will be used for a
cosmetic facelift or electrical current for an electronic one.
The electrodes vary also: needle, ball, roller, etc., each one with a specific
application.
FACIAL DEHYDRATION TREATMENT
Dehydration process
Someone once said that our ageing is due to the inability of living tissues to
retain water.
Indeed, with the passing of time, the water content in our tissues and organs
decreases, causing a lack of turgescence and a minor capacity to eliminate
toxins and catabolites: this is ageing.
Logically, the skin is not excluded from this process and also suffers the
consequences of time passing, this circumstance being aggravated by its
condition as barrier of separation between our body and the hostile and
dehydrating external environment.
However, our skin has certain mechanisms that tend to limit the loss of
internal water by evaporation and transpiration, without which the loss of
water through the skin would be massive and fatal. These mechanisms are
various:
•
•
•
Cutaneous lipids. Due to their hydrophobia, they exercise a physicalchemical barrier to the flow of water through the epicutaneous
emulsion in both directions.
Keratinous layer. The special disposition of the horn cells and the
characteristics of its membranes, as well as the maintenance of the
keratin at the most of its isoelectric point, help to maintain a water
content of between 12 and 15% in this external epidermic area.
Natural hydration factor. It is formed by a little-known mixture of
EMA
23
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
various substances produced by the cutaneous biological reactions,
whose mission of retaining water is due to its hydrophylia These
substances include amino acids, sugars, organic acids, mineral ions,
urea, etc.
•
Fibroblasts. These cells situated in the dermis make the collagen and
the mucopolysaccharides composed by fibres and the fundamental
substance of the subcutaneous tissue. For their marked hydrophilia
they are an important water reserve with 65 to 70% water.
Natural hydration process
We have seen how the dehydration process of the skin takes place. Now let’s
see what the natural hydration process of the skin is:
•
Internal factor. Water continually reaches the epidermis from the
deepest layers of the skin.
•
External factor. A percentage of the water lost by sweating is
reabsorbed, the epidermic water with keratinous structures and
components of the natural hydration factor.
•
Water absorbed by capillarity in the keratinous layer microstructure,
called imbibition water, that performs a lubricating and plastic role
with respect to the keratin, and confers a uniform appearance to the
epidermis, smooth and elastic.
•
United water remains relatively fixed in the epidermic structures, but
the same does not happen with the absorbed water, easily evaporated
by action of various external factors.
Factors contributing to dehydration
1. Climatic. They are very important, especially the summer dry atmosphere,
high mountain, exposure to the sun and wind. The dry environment of
houses and offices heated in winter or air-conditioned is also an important
factor of cutaneous dehydration.
2. Chemical. The skin dries easily with the contact of organic solvents, alkaline
soaps and detergents normally used.
EMA
24
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
a. The use of inappropriate cosmetics to clean the skin can lead to the
elimination of the hydrolipid film, the modification of the permeability of
the stratum corneum or the disappearance of natural hydration factors.
In this case, elimination of water is accelerated and the epidermis dries.
3. Age. With age sebaceous productions decrease, the cutaneous biological
reactions slow down, lowering the rate of natural hydrating factors, and the
fibroblasts produce less collagen and mucopolysaccharides. In short, the
keratinous layer loses its water retention capacity with age, and on the
other hand, the water coming from inside becomes less and less because of
the degeneration of the water reservoir of the subcutaneous tissue.
4. Diet. Due to pathological factors or reductions.
Treatment of dehydrated skins
This type of skin is mainly characterized by a rough aspect, for cracking or
scaling easily, for being fragile and/ or irritable, not being very elastic and
presenting a sensation of tautness.
As for beauty treatment, it is necessary to differentiate the preventive and
repairing dermohydrating ones.
Preventive treatment.
Apart from avoiding, where possible, very dry environments and excessive
exposure to the sun, as well as contact with detergents and cosmetics, the
beautician will recommend the use of cosmetic products preventing the lack of
water in the skin.
These hydrating cosmetic products can act in different ways.
•
Direct action. On the superficial layers of the skin by means of
hydrating preparations containing hydrophilic substances capable of
strenghtening the natural hydration factors: amino acids such as
glycine, hydroxyproline, arginine, etc; sugars, sodium salt from
carboxylic pyrolidin acid, sodium or glyceryl lactates, urea, etc.
Hygroscopic or moistening substances are often added, whose role
consists in retaining the water in the stratum corneum the longest
possible. Many have been tested, but the glycerine has been
discarded; the most effective are Sorbital and mucopolysaccharides,
EMA
25
Start up manual
GALVANIC 6000
among them hyaluronic acid which, thanks to its ability to retain water
and its affinity with cations helps to maintain the water content in the
active principles appropriate for cutaneous dehydration treatment.
Using zinc and titanium oxyde is also advocated for their covering capacity and
protection against solar radiation.
The excipient of these hydrating creams with direct action is generally
an emulsion of external aqueous phase, and is applied during the day.
•
Indirect action. Works on the epidermis, protecting it from
evaporation by means of covering or occlusive preparations. They are
unctuous like vaseline type onctions or emulsions of external oil
phase, with an abundance of non-absorbable mineral oils such as
paraffin and lipophilic substances that halt dehydration. Due to its
greasiness, it is advised to apply this type of preparation at night,
although it is not inconvenient to use it during the day on some
extremely dry skins.
Face masks are also mentioned in this chapter, since they form an
occlusion over the skin in a way that, by impeding transpiration, the
water vapour reverts to the keratinous layer, hydrating it at the
expense of the water lost by evaporation. However, this type of
cosmetic must not be used for more than 15 days, except if there is a
risk of excessive maceration of the horn cells with a loss of the
protective capacity of the keratine. Incorporating hydrating
substances in these masks is recommended: for example, amino
acids, sugars, urea, etc. In a same formula both effects can be
obtained, which is why products perfectly adapted to the needs of
each type of skin can be obtained.
Although principles with a direct action (such as water and moisturizers) are
desirable in every case, it is different with oils and other fat substances of
indirect action, more indicated for the treatment of dry skins than of greasy
complexions.
Dermohydrating refreshing treatment
When an important dehydration takes place because of the unfavourable
factors already mentioned, we have to act in a more vigorous and remedial
way. The occlusive and hydrating techniques of the epidermic surface are not
enough, we have to act at the level of the water reservoir, that is to say, of
subcutaneous tissue.
We have seen how the skin in senescence is poor in collagen, amino acids and

mucopolysaccharides, and particularly in hyaluronic acid. Supplying these
elements in depth is made difficult by their molecular complexity; it is then
when the ionisation techniques can help us to achieve their penetration.
Indeed, using the technique of marked molecules, it has been shown that,
after the ionisation, these elements are found in the depths of the skin, many
of them even forming part of complex molecules (collagen fibres and
mucopolysaccharides) originated from much simpler elements (hyaluramine
amino acids, etc.). Due to their polyanionic nature, many of these molecules,
get abundantly hydrated, causing a greater nutrition of the dermis and
favouring the elasticity and the young and hydrated aspect of the skin.
Conductive excipients
Once the ionising active principles have been chosen, they must be
incorporated to an excipient conducting the electrical current.

GALVANIC 6000: Appropriate device
The unit of galvanic and microgalvanic current of the GALVANIC 1000 is the
perfect tool for the beauty professional wanting to carry out a deep facial
rehydration treatment:
Technique:
1. Clean the face with a makeup remover low in fats.
2. Apply water vapour with ozone, intermittently for 10 minutes.
3. Perform a soft peeling. If there are any blackheads, extract them a few
days preceding the treatment, to avoid irritating the skin.
4. Moisten the skin with an isotonic conducting solution to increase
conductivity.
5. Extend the deep hydrating repair cream chosen over the area to treat.
6. Slowly slide the roller electrode, connected to the negative pole, over

the treatment area for 15 to 20 minutes with a work intensity included
between 1 and 2 miliamps. If it is necessary to put product over the
skin again, stop the supply of the current momentarily.
7. Remove the surplus cosmetological product.
8. Spray a decongestive lotion made from marigold or chamomile, letting
it dry over the skin. Massage with essential oils since the massage will
facilitate the pentration of ions. The muscular stimulation can also be
reached using passive gymnastics current, following the facial muscles.
9. Apply a mask with amino acids for 15 or 20 minutes.
10. Remove the mask with lukewarm water and apply a hydrating cream
appropriate to the type of skin being treated.
This dermohydrating repair treatment must follow the following pattern:
•
In cabin. One session every 5 or 8 days.
1. Frequency: One or two treatments per year, one of which
without fail after the summer.
•
At home. Maintenance on alternate days, at night, alternating with
nutritive creams and without forgetting the day protective hydrating
base. With a galvanic pencil 5 minutes of ionization on alternate days
will be enough. Apply a mask of amino acids every two weeks.
In animal experimentation
with rat skin, the effect of 15
ionisation sessions with a
collagen gel, amino acids and
mucopolysaccharides can be
observed.

PRODUCTS
a. The function of the products used to impregnate the plates in passive
gymnastics is to improve the electrical contact plate-client. The product
should be in gel format for a more effective transmission of the electrical
movement.
b. The products used in galvanic treatments can have properties applicable
in the field of aesthetics. As ionising products, they can be introduced by
ionisation through the positive or negative pole, depending on the nature
of the product supplied by the manufacturer. To avoid mistakes, always
put the product in the positive (red) electrode.
Ionising products through the positive pole
•
If the product is ionised through the positive electrode, the inverter
(15) must be in the normal position (product on the red “active”
electrode).
Ionising products through the negative pole
•
If the product is ionised through the negative electrode, the inverter
(15) must be in the inverted position (product on the red “active
electrode).

Product on the “passive” electrode (the electrode without product)
The “passive” electrode is in this case that which is connected to the black
cable. There is no need for a treatment product on this electrode, since the
surface of the body under this electrode does not receive treatment.
Nevertheless, it is necessary to put some solution on this electrode so that the
current circulates. NEITHER TAP WATER NOR SALT WATER MUST BE PUT IN
THIS ELECTRODE. These options could produce chemical burns.
Unfortunately, distilled water is not a valid option either since it conducts the
current poorly. The ideal is to put a chemically neutral aqueous solution
remaining neutral even after the current has passed, typically a product that is
chemically a BUFFER. This type of product can be found in gel or solutions.
Without such products, the passive electrode, the black one, could produce
chemical burns.
The use of a buffer solution is unnecessary, logically, when working with
bipolar products.
If you do not have the appropriate product for the “passive” electrode, you can
work as follows:
•
•
Put active product ON BOTH ELECTRODES.
CARRY OUT THE TREATMENT AS IF IT WERE A BIPOLAR PRODUCT.
This second option prolongs the time of treatment, but only the parts of the
body covered by BOTH plates receive the treatment.
NB. The procedure described is not the only one, but it is the easiest to use
and the least prone to mistakes.
Bipolar products
There are products in which both positive and negative ions can be used. In
this case, the areas of the body under the positive (red) electrode and the
(black) negative electrode receive the effects of the treatment.
The procedure to observe is the following:
•
•
•
•
Put product on both electrodes.
Start the first phase of treatment with the inverter on position normal.
Lower the intensity until reaching zero and wait 5 minutes before starting
the second phase (see note).
Put the inverter (15) in the inverted position.
EMA

•
GALVANIC 6000
Rise the intensity again to the value selected and start the second phase
of treatment.
Note. It is recommendable that the second step of the treatment be of the
same or less duration than the first. The interval of five minutes between the
first step and the second is given as an orientation. Consult the manufacturer
of the product for any doubt.
START UP
As prior precautions, the beauty professional must ensure that the intensity
controls are on zero and the electrodes are well cleaned and disinfected. Avoid
areas of continuity on the client’s skin. The treatment must focus on the area
to treat, the ionisation substance desired, the polarity to apply (or change of
polarity), intensity and time. Prepare the solution before starting the
treatment.

8.
Check that the device is connected.
Activate the on switch (1).
Put a gauze, filter paper or sponge or apply the product directly on the skin.
Put the static electrode on top or adjust the electrode-holder handles with
their corresponding roller accessory if you wish to use the microgalvanic. To
this end, the electrode holders must be connected to the relevant outlets
(6,7), and the microgalvanic switch (8) must be on.
Connect the polarity selected on the relevant switch (9).
Turn the intensity control of the galvanic current (4) and increase slowly up
to the value chosen. Maintain the same treatment time and change the
polarity half way through the treatment if it is convenient.
At the end of the treatment, slowly reduce the intensity to zero and turn the
switch (4) to its off position. Remove the electrodes and clean them.
Turn off the main switch (1).
IMPORTANT
•
To avoid mistakes when starting a new session, always make sure that
the inverter (8) is always off and on its normal position when finishing a
treatment.
•
Thoroughly clean all electrodes and covered used in each treatment with
soap and water at the end of the session.

•
In some cases a certain reddening of the skin can be observed when
removing the electrodes. This phenomenon, known as endosmosis, is
caused by the movement of fluid particles of the tissues that are
concentrated in front of the cathode. This reddening is perfectly normal
and disappears after a short period of time. Likewise, due to the
movement of the ions, the client can feel a sensation of heat in the
treated area. We must try to reduce this heat production, using the
whole surface of the electrodes. When only a small part of the total
surface of the plates is used, the heat generated concentrates in that
area and there is a risk of burn. However, when using the whole surface
of the electrodes, the heat produced is spread throughout the surface of
the skin in contact with the plate. To make sure that this contact is
perfect and that the electrical conduction of the current is optimum, the
covers and cotton wool that cover and protect the electrodes must
always be moistened.
•
It has to be mentioned that ionisation produces a certain effect of
hardening in areas close to the anode, which is used for firming
treatment.
•
This phenomenon comes from the change of permeability of the skin as a
result of the movement of ions and fluids.
•
In the description of descaling and acne treatments the negative ions
have been considered as the active ones. If on the other hand the active
ions of the product used were the positive ones, the inverter at the front
of the device (8) would have to be pressed.

POSSIBLE TECHNICAL PROBLEMS
1. The device is not working. Why?
The cable of the accessories may be cut in one of its points or at the extremity
of connexion to the device. For a proper operation of the device, replace the
broken part of the cable. The device blocks any current output when it detects
a leak. To extend the lifetime of these accessories, it is recommended to place
the apparatus at a 90º angle from the working couch, to avoid any
unnecessary suffering of the cables.
Also check that the plug is connected properly and that tension reaches the
appliance (you can check the presence of current with another device). Verify
the rear connector and the reliability of the mains cable, using it to connect
another appliance. It thus indicates that the problem does not come form the
mains cable. Once these verifications are made, the protection fuse may be
examined to see if it has not meted. Finally, make sure that the mains voltage
correspond to that of the device.
If the pilot light is on but the device is not working, check with this start up
manual that the operation process is the right one. If the problem persists,
consult the technical department.
90% OF TECHNICAL PROBLEMS COME FROM A LACK OF ATTENTION WHEN
HANDLING THE BUTTONS AND FROM THE NATURAL WEAR OF THE
ACCESSORIES. For this reason, please check all these details before contacting
your nearest technical service.
2. I discovered that the device does not work properly since yesterday.
However, there has been a storm...
Storms and rains can sometimes affect national hydroelectric systems. If you
discover problems with your electrical devices after a storm (especially the
most sensitive), it is advised to connect a current stabiliser to the device. This
electrical device facilitates the apparatus proper operation by purifying the
inconstant electrical signal received by the user and creating a continuous,
stable signal. Sensitive devices can then work properly since they receive the
same amount of mains voltage at all time.
