The manufacturers of skin care product boast of the positive results of their treatments. For any treatment to work, it needs to penetrate the skin. A galvanic machine uses negative and positive current to force a skin product deep into the skin. Up to 24 hours after the treatment, your skin will continue to deeply absorb treatment products. You may have the treatment performed by an esthetician, or use a unit made specifically for home use.
