Definition of Phoresis with unipolar Galvanic Current:
The penetration of liquid or product through an unbroken membrane.
The negative current, ANA, is used to stimulate the skin, open pores, promote healing, and soften the skin. It normally is used at the beginning of a facial.
The positive current, CATA will reduse redness, unflamation and swelling, promote healing, reduce pore size, and soothe the skin. This polarity is used at the end of the facial to hold in the vital nutrients that were added during the treatment.

ELECTROLYSIS POST TREATMENT LIGHT PHORESIS
After Electrolysis prepare the Red (633nm) light with Saran Wrap. Apply small amount of DMAE/Hyaluronic gel to plastic wrap for added slippage. The light may also be lifted from the skin and moved to the next area without using the “clear” gel.
Plug the light into your base unit or into an AC wall outlet if you have the wall adapter. Turn on the light with the button on top of the unit. Slowly move the LED light unit over the treatment areas approximately 1 minute.
Can I know what lesions are safe for me to remove from my client's face, for aesthetic reasons?
Yes, you can remove most aesthetically impaired lesions that your clients, provided you always have them first check it with their GP to confirm that it is safe to remove, and then have them sign a consent form that says that they have had it checked and that it can be removed. For ease of mind, remember to double check the lesion using the "A to G" check list below or click on the link to see some examples of various cancer spots, before performing any Lamprobe treatments as its always better to be safe, than sorry!
Please memorise what each of these alphabet stands for and consider them when carefully when viewing them under a polarised lens using the Skin-lite diagnostic tool and while touching the lesions to check its firmness. If you do not currently own a Skin-lite tool then it is worth your time, money and credibility.
