Transcript of Galvanic Moisture Gradient

Epilation - "Moisture Gradient"
What is the Moisture Gradient?
How does this effect treatment?
Other considerations
Moisture is a "conductor" to the current - so it will carry & spread the current more easily.
The "gradient" is how high or low the moisture levels are - important for determining the intensity of current you will use.
The amount of moisture present on a clients skin.
The more moisture there is, the easier the current will flow - meaning a lower intensity may be possible, as it will perform more effectively through the conductive follicle.
Therefore, less moisture (dehydrated/dry skin) may need a higher intensity due to reduced conductivity.
Galvanic/Blend techniques NEED moisture in the follicle - to react with the salt and complete the chemical reaction into sodium hydroxide. If there is no moisture, this cannot happen = ineffective treatment.
Excess sebum in an oilier skin type may act as an insulator to the current - maintaining the intensity of the current in the lower follicle - space a larger distance between each hair on an oily skin.
Consider Oedema (swelling/fluid retention) when treating as this can be hard to probe as follicles are tighter due to swelling. Never probe into areas affected by oedema - but you can treat the surrounding areas, bearing in mind it may be sensitive.
Sensitive skin could be dry or oily, so treat carefully, blotting, & spacing out treated hairs

Black skins are often oily with distorted/curly hairs and follicles - so the current will conduct well in the moisture & be effective on the follicle.
Skin should be blotted dry before treating, to avoid adverse reactions such as burns; due to current being conducted through the moisture.
