I found a new gadget called the Galvanic Spa. Read that Galvanic current is what Sophia Loren has been using for years. Is galvanic spa worth it?

can you purchase with an FSA since it is classified as a medical device?

I'm from South Africa and received a Galvanic Spa 2 from my daughter. I'm using it a week now without the gels as it is very expensive in SA. I'm sure I can see some small results already. Is that okay if I use it without the gels.? I use it every night for 3 minutes on the negative and 3 minutes on the positive.

Annelie - you need to use the Galvanic Spa with the gels. Use the white one first on setting 1, make sure you hand is wet and it stays in constant contact with the silver patch on the back of the machine. Also, you should keep constant contact with the machine on your face until you hear the final beeps and your session is done. Then remove that gel with a wet washcloth. Apply the green gel and put the machine on setting 2 - all the other instructions apply. Good luck - email me with any additional questions - howeru@live.com

Annelie, you need to use it with the gels to see any results. After washing your face use the white gel, put the Spa on setting 1 touch it to your face, wait for 1, 2 or 3 beeps (it's adjusting to your skin) then in upward movements go over your entire face. Make sure your hand is wet and that it stays in constant contact with the silver patch on the back of the machine. Also, keep the Spa in constant contact with your face until you hear the final beeps which mean that session is done. Wipe off the gel with a wet washcloth, apply the green gel - follow all the other instructions. Wipe off the gel then if you have the Tru Face Line Corrector apply to areas with wrinkles - around the eyes, forehead, nose to mouth. Mist your face switch heads to the 'eraser' and do only the areas with the lotion. I always follow up with Future Serum and the Pearls aka: Tru Face Essence Ultra - great for increasing elasticity. Email me if you have any questions, I am happy to help - howeru@live.com - Best, Cindy

Hi, I live in Mexico City. I bought the Galvanic Spa II about 3 years ago because I wanted to tighten my face skin (a "face lift") but honestly, it never did anything for me at all. I THINK (I may be wrong) that I may not have used the right "gel" to get the results that I was looking for. Can you please tell me exactly which gel must be used to achieve "face lifting" results?? And if possible, a link or a reference to the instructions that I should follow. My email is: celicarlos0308@gmail.com

The gels for Nuskin have positive and negative ions that push stuff deeper in or something like that. Some say you can just ionize your own stuff on your own, by adding salt (sodium ions) to say, vitamin C serums. I wonder if this is a good idea, seems right....

RoxieLOC what are the exact ingredients? Do you mean it targets to the subdermal layer? Or even deeper? Would this be similar then to a dermaroller which also allows for deeper penetration of ingredients, or does it have another benefit? I ask because I do understand the need to go DEEPER (although the ingredients must be extremely safe, like ONLY copper or C after dermarolling.) However the neck seems to be far more difficult in general. Do you have any documented evidence (real photos would be nice!)

Hmm.. okay I didn't really want advertising language I wanted actual, scientific details -- that is, the INGREDIENT LISTS. Thank you for the three you did mention, they sound good. Sea kelp is pretty good as it moisturizes and does lots of good stuff for inflammation, imo. And arginine is a great amino acid for skin and hair. One thing you say though that I don't understand: I don't think you can say Nu Skin unlocked the secret of youth on its own as I credit the scientists who discovered telemores and won major scientific credits for determining how to lengthen the life of cells -- I don't think it's right for Nu Skin to claim they are behind this as I believe this is stealing someone else's thunder. Unless those same scientists have done this? If not you may be getting yourself into some advertising trouble. But I was more interested in what the exact ingredients are because that tells me if something has any validity behind its claims (kind of like when you buy a cereal that claims in huge letters on the front, GOOD FOR YOU and then read the ingredients and sugar is the top ingredients....) Is there anyone out there who can tell me how this galvanic treatment works, specifically, and send photos to nadiahoney07@gmail.com. I do think ATP and driving helpful ingredients into cells sounds great, so I do see that something that helps do this (rather than just slapping any old cream on the top layer of skin) would be worth buying -- but I think everyone should research products more thoroughly, especially those that are (a) extremely costly and (b) make grandiose claims.

Nadia - Nu Skin has over 100 PHD's and scientists on their payroll and staff. In addition we corroborate with many universities around the globe. It is through this scientific research and development that they discovered the genetic process of aging and how to reverse it with Gene Expression Science. You can find all the information you are asking for on our website. www.nuskin.com Nu Skin has been working with a laboratory (LifeGen Technologies) that has been working on the human genome for over 30 years. They started this partnership around 2005. Last year they purchased the company and all their patents and papers. Here is a list of all the ingredients in the gels : Galvanic Spa Pre-Treat Gel Water (Aqua), Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Calendula OfficinalisFlower Extract, Macrocystis Pyrifera Extract, Vanilla Planifolia FruitExtract, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Glyceryl Acrylate/AcrylicAcid Copolymer, Polysorbate 20, TEA-Cocoyl Glutamate, PropyleneGlycol, Carbomer, Potassium Hydroxide, Citric Acid, Disodium EDTA,Chlorphenesin, Phenoxyethanol. Galvanic Spa Treatment Gel Water (Aqua), Butylene Glycol, Glycerin, Isoceteth-20, SchizandraChinensis Fruit Extract, Narcissus Tazetta Bulb Extract, TocopherylNicotinate, Arginine, Magnesium Aspartate, Salicin, Jasminum Officinale(Jasmine) Extract, Rosa Damascena Flower Oil, SantalumAlbum (Sandalwood) Oil, TEA-Cocoyl Glutamate, Polysorbate 20,Oleth-10, Hydroxypropyl Methylcellulose, Xanthan Gum, GlycerylAcrylate/Acrylic Acid Copolymer, Propylene Glycol, Disodium EDTA,Citric Acid, Chlorphenesin, Potassium Sorbate, Phenoxyethanol. https://www.nuskin.com/content/nuskin/en_US/products/nuskin/ageloc/01003876.html this is the link to the gels product information page. there you will find all the resources you want to study - and you will also see the before and after photos. http://www.liveandlookyoung.com/content/liveandlookyoung/en_US/videos/videos1.html This is a company video explaining our ageloc technology - Nu Skin is the only company that, through our scientific breakthroughs targets the SOURCE of aging, which is at the celular level. Not only have we acquired LifeGen Technologies and all their world patents, we also acquired ARknox Technologies. I hope this helps, have more questions..? want to try the products..? contact me :) roxieloc@gmail.com

I meant 3 months at the moment but I'm going to carry on one side for 4 months.

I've been treating half my face for 3 months now and the results are astonishing. I've also had my face measured at one of the major beauty counters in Boots. The moisture and elasticity has gone up dramatically. If anyone would like to see the photos of each side of my face, treated and untreated and also photos of the measurement log please feel free to as. Noraedge@hotmail.co.uk. I'm now using it on some not very nice looking veins on my legs and have seen a small Improvement in just 3 days. I'll see what they look like in 3 weeks. I'm over the moon with it.

Okay, there's some legit science here, some of it borrowed, some of it belonging to Nuskin, some of it blue....no jk. The products are VERY expensive but if they work they are worth it. I suppose any product can have some awful stuff out there reported on consumer affairs. Doesn't mean it doesn't work! Seriously, if it works I'm in....not so sure about that return policy from what I read. There is a LOT of mass level marketing going on with this company -- that means using customers to do your advertising for you. Also the claims are definitely overstated. This is why some scientists are also CRITICAL of Nuskin, those who aren't affiliated financially with the company. To claim you alone know how to reset genes for aging sounds a bit insane, and here is why: scientists long before Nuskin existed -- indeed when Nuskin was but a twinkle in some executive's eye -- have run studies in which they showed that calorie restriction works to some extent (yeah like anyone wants to do that), as do certain antioxidants and tretinoin (Retin-A.) Is galvanic spa and Nuskin's own serums (VERY expensive!) another possible anti-ager? Could be... how many claiming these superb results are distributors or have any affiliation or contract as marketers for the company? Again, that does NOT make your results any less believable, but it would be nice to know.

I've been treating half my face for 4 months with the Galvanic spa and the results are amazing. I also went down to my local Boots store and had one of the major beauty companies there, measure my face. The side I'm treating improved in elasticity and moisture by an astonishing amount. If anyone would like to see my photos and a photo of the skin measurement log then please let me know. I'm happy to send you them. Email me on noraedge@hotmail.co.uk
