SOTA Bio- Beauty (Galvanic)

Before I start reviewing my galvanic machine, I think I should start by explaining what galvanic treatment is.

Galvanic treatment is a treatment that uses galvanic current to introduce water soluble products into the skin, and this process is called iontophoresis. When using galvanic current there are 2 poles , a positive (+) and a negative (-).

For deep cleanse treatments, the machine will be positively charged, while the deep cleanse essence will be negatively charged. The positively charged instrument will attract the negatively charged impurities, drawing them out of the skin.

For other treatments, both the machine and the essence (hydrating, whitening, acne, etc.) will be positively charged. These positive charges repel each other helping to deliver the beneficial ingredients to the skin.

The galvanic machine that I have is SOTA Bio-Beauty Bio-Facial Device, a japanese product that I got from HealthPlus (健怡坊) in Hong Kong about 5 years ago. I'm not sure whether this is still available, and if anybody knows please inform me because mine fell apart today.....



This is negatively charged

I've soaked a cotton pad with the essence and placed it on the machines

Cotton pad before use

Cotton pad after use (gross)

Please note that I have already washed my face before using this gadget, and after the treatment it was still gross.....

My dear machine fell apart and the timer isn't working anymore

The new machine that I'm coveting
