BEFORE YOU START
You are advised to drink additional water before a galvanic treatment to allow for proper conductivity of current â€“ drink at least one 8 ounce / 250 mL glass of water 30 minutes prior to a treatment. Since lymph drainage is activated with microcurrent, you may feel nauseous if you do not drink a sufficient amount of water after the treatment - once again, at least one 8 ounce / 250 mL glass of water following your treatment.
Microcurrent will continue to stimulate adenosine triphosphate (ATP) levels for 72-94 hours after treatment with System SG3 Galvanic Gels. For this reason, we suggested that you perform a home-based or professional in-clinic galvanic treatment no more than once a week. Additional treatments will not hurt you, but are unnecessary with the use of our concentrated gels/serums.
At-home consumer galvanic microcurrent devices may encourage iontophoresis, or deep penetration of water-based skin care products, increasing the absorption rate of their beneficial ingredients. It is important NOT to use oil-based products prior to galvanic treatments because these products inhibit current flow.
It is important to read all warnings and directions in the instruction-for-use or user manual of your galvanic micro-current, ultrasound, or photofacial devices before you proceed with any treatments.
Consumer and professional galvanic micro-current, near infra-red LED photofacial, or high frequency ultrasound (3-5 MHz) devices were designed for cosmetic use only and for individuals in good health. If this is not the case for you, please consult your doctor before use.
The SG â€“ Serum Gels - skincare products are concentrated professional grade formulations. Use just a little bit - 3 to 5 pumps of the precision dispenser - will release the correct amount of serum for each phase/cycle.

SPECIAL NOTE: Nu Skin recommends that their Galvanic Spa should not be use by people prone to rosacea, have allergies to metal or have sensitive skin.
Wash your face and neck thoroughly and pat dry. Leave skin damp.
Apply Stage 1/Spa Session A/Pre-Treatment Gel to your face, and do a negative ion galvanic treatment for 2-5 minutes. Depending on the actual hydration level of your skin, and the fact that the serum gels actually absorb quickly into your skin, you will probably discover that a 2-3 minute cycle is all you need.
Apply some water if skin begins to feel dry or an additional 2-3 drops of gel.
There is no need to remove any unabsorbed gel following the negative ion treatment phase.
Apply Stage 2/Spa Session B/Treatment Gel your face and neck, and do a positive ion galvanic treatment for 2-5 minutes.
NuSkin Facial Spa (Single Gel Device, November 2014 - )
Nu Skin Facial Spa features a 10-minute, full-face, basic regimen and three five-minute area regimens.
The basic regimen has a five-minute Spa Session A and a five-minute Spa Session B. All of the area regimens include a two-minute Spa Session A and a three-minute Spa Session B.
Apply Stage 1/Spa Session A/Pre-Treatment Gel to your face, and do a Spa Session A treatment cycle.
Apply Stage 2/Spa Session B/Treatment Gel to your face, and do a Spa Session B treatment cycle.
If you find that the gel absorbs into your skin to rapidly try using the three-minute area regimen rather than the full basic regimen cycle.
Apply the Pre-Treatment Serum Gel to your targeted treatment area(s).
Wait one or two minutes, then apply the Treatment Serum Gel to your targeted treatment area(s). This is known as â€˜layeringâ€™. The combined effect of the two gels will significantly enhance your NuFACE treatment regimen.
Glide the NuFACE Classic or Trinity device over the natural contours of your face.
Use Pre-Treatment Serum Gel with the Bio-Therapeutics BT-Micro set on the last button (Ion -) to deeply cleanse the skin (referred to as the â€˜Clarificationâ€™ phase by Bio-Therapeutics). Treatment time should be between 3-5 minutes for the entire face.
Next, use the Treatment Serum Gel with the BT-Micro Ion +1 button pressed twice. Treatment time should be between 3-5 minutes for the entire face.
You only need to do a BT-Micro negative and positive galvanic ion treatment once a week.
ACUPRESSURE FACIAL MASSAGE
Be sure to do this face massage with clean hands and face, and leave your face damp before you begin to apply the galvanic serum.
Use the tips of the index, middle, and ring fingers together to exert a deep, local pressure in a tiny circular movement. You should be able to feel the skin rubbing against the small muscles of the face. Lift the fingers and reposition them to travel across the skin.
Use the flat pads of the index, middle, and ring fingers together or simply the thumb to travel across the skin â€“ either in a slow, spiraling action, or by simply sliding upward, downward, or outward. For the most part, keep the remainder of your hand resting lightly on your face.
Basic Acupressure Face Massage Steps:
Apply a thin layer of Pre-Treatment Serum Gel to the entire face area.
Place your fingertips on your jawbone and with light pressure, make a large, sweeping circle from the jaw line up either side of your nose to the center of the forehead, out along the hairline, and down the temples to meet at the jawbone. This gently stimulates blood circulation and spreads the gel.
Using the tips of your index, middle, and ring fingers, start at the chin and travel along the jaw line and then up from the angles of the jaw to the temples.
Next, move your index, middle, and ring fingers each side of the nose, close to the base of the nostrils, moving first under the cheekbones and then up toward the tops of the ears.
Place the tips of the middle fingers at the inner corners of the eyes, slide your fingers upward, pushing against the orbital bone, and then outward, just above the eyebrows, towards the ears.
Massage the forehead, starting just above the top of the nose, moving up toward the hairline, and then outward until you reach the temples. Position the pads of all three fingers at the base of the central frown line, just above the top of the nose, and slide them toward the temples.
Bring this sequence to an end by repeating the sweeping movement described in step 2. This sequence should last 2-4 minutes.
Now, layer the Treatment Serum Gel on the entire face area.
Repeat steps 2 to 7.
