Product Description

Product Description

Galvanic Wand in use
The Galvanic Wand reduces wrinkles and rejuvenates the skin

Rejuvenate your skin with the Rio Galvanic Wand

The Galvanic Wand uses gentle micro currents to infuse collagen and retinol into the skin, for an intense wrinkle reduction and skin rejuvenation treatment. Using Iontophoresis, the Galvanic Wand pumps the active ingredients deep into the surface of the skin to enhance their effectiveness. This technology has been available in expensive salons for many years and now this powerful facial treatment is available to you at home.

The treatment

The Galvanic Wand treatment regime comprises two distinct treatments--Iontophoresis Cleansing and Iontophoresis Infusion. The cleansing treatment helps remove impurities from the skin and is also the perfect preparation for the infusion treatment. Iontophoresis Infusion uses small micro currents to carry the active ingredients for skin repair and rejuvenation deep into the skin. This transdermal infusion greatly increases the effectiveness of topically applied treatments which would otherwise find it difficult to penetrate the skin. Short-term infusion results can usually be seen almost immediately. With continued regular use, the effects can become long lasting.

The Galvanic Wand is not suitable for use on areas of skin with disorders such as rosacea, pustular acne, abraded skin, sensitive skin, or over scars, moles or varicose veins.

Treatment zones

The Galvanic Wand can be used to treat the forehead, crows feet, under eye, naso labial, chin and upper lip (fold patch), as shown in the diagram to the right.

The Galvanic Wand cleansing pre-treatment

Before you start you must always do a patch test on an inconspicuous area of your skin for possible skin reaction. Wait 24 hours and if irritation occurs do not continue treatment. For best results, complete the cleansing pre-treatment before moving onto the infusion treatment. Rio recommends the Vitamin Cleansing Gel is used only once in 24 hours. If you have sensitive skin, leave 48 hours between treatments.

Step one

Apply a generous amount of Vitamin Cleansing Gel to clean skin. Without the gel the treatment may feel prickly.

Cleansing pre-treatment step two
Step two

Push the power button to ON. Set the micro-current button to (-) negative and adjust the intensity wheel to level one.

Cleansing pre-treatment step three
Step three

Move the roller slowly back and forth over the treatment area. It is important that you hold the unit by the conductive panels. Correct operation is indicated by a red light when the roller contacts the skin/gel. The unit will not make a noise or vibrate. If insufficient gel is used the treatment may feel prickly.

Step four

To increase the intensity turn the intensity wheel clockwise. Working over the whole face should take approximately 3-6 minutes.

Step five

Thoroughly clean and dry skin. You can continue directly onto infusion treatment.

The Galvanic Wand infusion treatment

Rio recommends collagen and retinol patches are only used once in 24 hours. If you have sensitive skin, leave 48 hours between treatments.

Step one
Infusion treatment step two

Tear along the perforated edge of the collagen and retinol patch sachet. Take a patch from the plastic casing and peel off the liners to reveal the gel patch.

Step two

Place the patch onto the area to be treated. Place the other patch on the opposite side of the face.

Step three
Infusion treatment step three

Push the power button to ON. Set the micro-current button to (+)positive and set the intensity wheel to level one.

Infusion treatment step four
Step four

Slowly and gently move the roller back and forth on the patch. Repeat the process over the other patch. Continue treatment by alternating between patches for 10-30 minutes (5-15 minutes on each patch). It is important that you hold the unit by the conductive panels. Correct operation is indicated by a blue light when the roller contacts the patch. The unit will not make a noise or vibrate. Most people will not feel anything.

Step five

To increase the intensity turn the intensity wheel clockwise. You can leave the patches on for up to 60 minutes allowing continued gentle infusing. After removing patches, massage any residue into your skin.

Patch information

The majority of the infusion happens in the first 5-15 minutes on each treatment area, but the patches may remain on the face for up to 60 minutes. Retinol easily breaks down so store your patches in a cool dry place away from sunlight. You may even prefer to store them in the refrigerator to have a cooling gel patch for treatment. Retinol can make your skin more sensitive to the sun so after use, it is recommended that you use a high factor sunscreen. Ensure patches are well adhered to the face before treatment so they don’t peel off. The patches are designed for single use only.

You can clean your Galvanic Wand with a damp cloth but do not use solvents or detergents. For best results, complete the cleansing pre-treatment before moving onto the infusion treatment.

Safety Warning

Do not use the Galvanic Wand if you are pregnant or if you have any of the following: pacemaker, heart disorder, receiving treatment for low blood pressure, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, or if you are recovering from an operation. Do not use on areas of skin with disorders such as rosacea, pustular acne, abraded skin, sensitive skin, or over scars, moles or varicose veins.

Take particular care when moving near the eye. Ensure the roller is at least 1cm away from the eye at all times. If the gel or patches come into contact with the eyes, rinse thoroughly with water. If irritation persists, consult a doctor. Keep out of reach of children and pets. This appliance is not intended for use by persons, including children, with reduced physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless they have been given supervision or instructions concerning use of the appliance by a person responsible for their safety.

The hand-held galvanic treatment device comes with a vitamin cleansing gel and far too few nourishing patches. I have since bought other gels (Hive and Strictly Professional) that can be used with such devices. My skin has obviously improved instantly. Fewer blackheads and they're easier to remove. More notably the severe blemishes I suffer are smaller and some do not burst at all - less scarring. Highly recommended.

One tip: Wet your hand that holds the device. It helps with passing the electricity current through the metallic bit you hold onto and makes it not prickly on the hand.

Sorry folks but I can't really assess the machine's qualities as the infusion patches are AWFUL. To try and get them on your face is so difficult as they break and even if you actually get one on it breaks up under the machine.
