An Absolute MUST HAVE to look younger longer!

Galvanic treatments are used by spas and salons. It is a gentle, low current to refresh and energize the skin. These treatments, through a gently massaging action, help to focus cellular energy and enhance circulation.

Charges that are alike repel each other while opposite charges attract. By creating products to contain the specific charge and using the same charge, the currents are able to absorb the product deep down into the skin.

Nu Skin developed a patent technology, using the galvanic instrument to enhance the delivery of key ingredients up to 24 hours with only five minutes of each treatment. The galvanic instrument is a hand held home device that uses positive and negative low currents. It is light weight, battery operated machine that is used in the comfort of your own home.

With extensive research, Nu Skin found the source that causes aging: an internal free radical generator in the epidermis. Present on the surface of the cells, the age causing generator causes skin damage free radicals around the clock.

In addition to the amazing discovery, Nu Skin scientists have identified an exclusive blend of ingredients that slow down the production of the free radicals deep down in the epidermis. The technology that was designed to reduce the visible signs of aging by targeting the source aging is called ageLOC.

The ageLOC comes into two gel forms – Pre-treatment gel and treatment gel. Not only does the gels help slows down the aging signs, but it also remove impurities to revive the skin. The result reveals a clear, smoother look.

The pre-treatment along with the galvanic instrument uses a negative charge. Combined system absorbs the treatment deep down into the pores to adhere to impurities such as excess oil and pollutants. This allows the pores to breathe to soothe and condition the skin.

The treatment phase along with the galvanic instrument uses a positive charge. The positive charge attracts the negative charge from the pre-treatment gels and pulls the gels along with the dirt and impurities out of the skin. This results in promoting cellular energy, enhances skin hydration, which leaves the skin feeling soft, clean, and refreshed.

 

Treatment Phases

 
 The pre-treatment gel contains marigold extract to comfort and soothe the skin, sea kelp to moisturize and condition the skin, and vanilla extract to condition the skin These ingredients help remove impurities, allowing pores to breathe.

The treatment gel contains a proprietary ageLOC blend to help slow free radical production at its source and reducing visible signs of aging, arginine – an amino acid to help skin recover from stress, and magnesium to promote cellular energy.

 The galvanic spa can also be used on your under arms, stomach, butt, thighs, and under the chin.  The spa package comes with the body shaping gel to help tighten the skin elasticity.  If you are a mother like me, you’ll want to use it on your stomach area to tighten the flab that you get after carrying a child.  And if you have cellulite or stretch marks on your hips, the galvanic spa will help reduce the appearance. 

For those of you have lost significant amount of weight, use the body gels to tighten up the loose skin.  Also use the gel under your chin to tighten up the loose skin.

Stretch Marks

One supposed cause of stretch marks have been found to be hormones. Quite interesting, isn’t it. It is believed that when pregnant, working out (bulking up), or gaining weight that causes a serious change in your hormones and change in the metabolism in the skin. So, in fact, it seems that it is the hormone changes and not the stretching that may be causing the stretch marks.

The most common cause of stretch marks is believed to be the stretching of the skin past the point of bouncing back. This usually occurs with pregnancy, weight gain, puberty changes, or medical issues. There are a number of ways to treat stretch marks. Although, there is no true cure for it some of the options to help with them are:

Hydration and Diet – Keep body fully hydrated by drinking enough water. Soft hydrated skin is less likely to get stretch marks. Caffeine should be avoided. It seems that caffeine may increase your risk of developing stretch marks. Incorporate skin healthy foods into your diet. Foods rich in nuts, fish, vitamin A and C, and eggs are all good for maintaining healthy skin.

Creams – Many stretch mark creams are out on the market now. Strivectin is a popular one, but it is best to ask your doctor which one you should try. Cocoa butter is often recommended to soften skin and reduce the appearance of scars.

Skin Treatments – Laser surgery, chemical peels, or dermabrasion can be chosen to address your existing stretch marks. This seems to be the most productive choice, although a bit pricey. I have heard a lot of positive things about the laser surgery.

Surgery – a tummy tuck is commonly used to remove the excess loose skin and stretch marks on the stomach area.
