Galvanic Spas versus Skin Rejuvenation Options Like Fraxel

While people might report an improvement in the way their skin feels after the Galvanic spa, it does not give results that are permanent. To fully understand this, it is important to understand the causes of aging signs.

Collagen and elastin fibers in the dermal layer below your skin's surface are what keeps your skin firm and elastic. Environmental factors, particularly UV rays from the sun are what contributes to their degradation over time. Therefore, addressing the rejuvenation of these fibers is what will contribute to younger looking skin.

Fraxel Dual and skin rejuvenation lasers for example uses wavelengths that deliberately apply heat to the dermal layer of the skin, allowing it to produce collagen as a way for it to recover from the heat. It can also treat age spots as well. 

Fraxel can also be used in conjunction with Spectra. Here is an example of an actual patient (see video)
