Milady's Esthetics Chapter 7 Basics of Electricity
Form of energy that, when in motion, exhibits magnetic, chemical, or thermal effects.
The flow of electricity along a conductor.
Any substance that easily transmits electricity.
A substance that does not easily transmit electricity
the path of an electric current from the generating source through conductors and back to its original source.
A constant, even-flowing current that travels in one direction only.
An apparatus that changes direct current to alternating current.
An apparatus that changes alternating current to direct current.
The unit that measures the pressure or force that pushes the flow of electrons forward through a conductor.
The unit that measures the strenght of an electric current ( the number of electrons)
One-thousandths of an amp.
Unit that measures the resisitance of an electric current.
Measurement of how much electricity is being used.
A special device that prevents excessive current from passing through a circuit
A switch that automatically interrupts or shuts off an electric circuit at the first indication of overload.
Electrical facial treatments
An applicator for directing the electric current from the machine to the client's skin.
Used for unblocking clogged pores and to drive solutions deeper into the epidermis.
electrode to be used on the area treated
The opposite pole from the active electrode.
The term for the process of introducing water soluble products into the skin with the use of electric currents.
Forces acidic substances into deeper tissues by using galvanic current from the positive toward the negative pole.
A process which uses the negative pole to soften and emulsify grease deposits (oil) and blackheads in the hair follicle.
An alternating and interrupted current that produces a mechanical reaction without a chemical effect.
Alternating, mechanical contractions, and is used during scalp manipulations.
Extremely low level of electricity that mirror's the body's own natural electrical impulses.
Telsa High Frequency
Thermal or heat producing current with a high rate of oscillation or vibration.
Radiant energy, carries, or radiates, energy through space or waves.
The distance between tow successive peaks.
The application of light rays to the skin for the treatment of acne, wrinkles, capillaries, pigmentation, or hair removal.
Invisible rays that have longer wavelengths, penetrate deeper, and produce more heat than visible light does.
Referred to as combination light becuase it is a combination of all the rays of the visible spectrum.
Only on oily skin that is bare, few heat rays, least penetrating, has some germicidal and chemical benefits.
Used on dry skin in combination with oils and creams.
Light amplification stimulation emission of radiation.
A process that turns light from the laser into heat.
