The galvanic spa by Nu-skin is recommended to be used 3 times a week for 2mins on one side and 2 mins on the other using no1 current for clear gel and no2 current for blue gel. There is a no3 current for the peptide cream with a different head attachment. If you are experiencing problems, make sure that you are using Nu-skin companion products such as Ageloc Transformation or True Face essence ultra. Use of the spa is all on the DVD I find that it has helped my skin and refined my pores and it reduces costs down to $10.00 per treatment. You can spend a lot at the Beautician or the Dermatologist.
