process of desincrustation or forcing negative liquids into the tissues from the negative toward the positive pole; an alkaline, stimulating reaction.
process of forcing positive, acidic substances into deeper tissues using galvanic current from the positive toward the negative pole; tightens and calms the skin.
galvanic current is used to create an alkaline chemical reaction that emulsifies or liquefies sebum and debris.
the use of electrical devices for therapeutic benefits.
a constant and direct current, it uses a positive and negative pole to produce chemical reactions, (desincrustation) and ionic reactions (iontophoresis).
high frequency machine
apparatus that utilizes alternating or sinusoidal current to produce a mild to strong heat effect. High frequency is a Tesla current, sometimes called a violet ray.
an atom or molecule that carries an electrical charge.
the separating of a substance into ions.
process of introducing ions of water-soluble products into the skin by using an electric current such as the positive and negative poles of a galvanic machine.
atomizer designed to apply plant extracts and other ingredients to the skin.
machine used to lightly exfoliate and stimulate the skin; also helps soften excess oil, dirt, and cell buildup.
chemical reaction during desincrustation where the current transforms the sebum into soap.
alternating current similar to faradic current; produces mechanical contractions and is used during scalp and facial manipulations.
spray misting device.
a heat effect; used for permanent hair removal.
device that vacuums/suctions the skin to remove impurities and stimulate circulation.
filtered black light that is used to illuminate skin disorders, fungi, bacterial disorders, and pigmentation.
another word for magnifying lamp.
most common magnification.
most important machine used in esthetics.
