Galvanic facial which includes electrolysis, iontophoresis and desincrustation – have been standard salon practices for a long time. The earliest, electrolysis, made the switch from a medical procedure to a beauty treatment in the 1880s. Iontophoresis, another medical treatment known under a variety of names, could also be found in some beauty salons by 1903 at the latest.

Late nineteenth-century doctors classified their electrical treatments according to the ‘type’ of electric current being used. These were categorised according to how the current was produced, with each form named after a famous scientist – i.e., franklinic, galvanic and faradic. Two of these, galvanic and faradic found their way into Beauty Culture.
