The Healing Journey: Scab Formation After Galvanic Electrolysis

Understanding Scab Formation and Healing

After Galvanic Multi Probe Electrolysis Treatment

When you invest time and trust in a galvanic multi probe electrolysis session, every tiny detail matters. You might have noticed a minuscule scab at the treated site, raising questions. At Permanence, we believe in empowering you with knowledge. Let’s embark on a journey of understanding the silent warriors of healing – the scabs.

Think of a scab as nature’s ingenious band-aid. Whenever a minor wound emerges, like the one post a galvanic multi probe electrolysis, your body marshals its forces, dispatching special cells to the frontline. Their mission? Crafting a scab, the protective shield warding off germs and fostering healing beneath.

Beneath the seemingly uneventful scab, a symphony of healing unfolds. Your body’s diligent repair brigade is constructing new skin cells, reminiscent of meticulous artisans restoring a masterpiece.

What is a Scab and Why does it form?

A scab is like a natural band-aid for your skin.  When you have a tiny wound, like the one left after galvanic multi probe electrolysis, your body sends special cells to the area to repair it.  These cells create a protective layer called a scab.  Its like a shield that keeps out germs and helps your skin heal underneath.

The Healing Process under the Skin:  

Underneath that scab, amazing things are happening!  Your body’s repair team is busy building new skin cells.  They’re like little construction workers fixing up the area.  They’re working hard to close the wound and make your skin perfect again.  

How Long does Healing take and the scabs last?

Healing time can vary, but typically, small scabs from galvanic multi probe electrolysis take around a week or two to fully heal.  During this time, your body is making sure everything is just right before the scab comes off.  Be sure to continue applying Melfol Calm Balm to the treated area until all scabs have completed their wound healing process. Melfol Calm Balm is a cream created by Permaence to ensure speedy recovery and for the skin to return to a normal smooth state.

The No-No: Pulling off the scab early:

Now here’s the important part.  It’s really tempting to pick or pull off the scab early.  But trust us, resist the urge!  If you pull it off too soon, you might mess up the amazing work your body is doing.  You could end up with a scar or even an infection.  So, be patient and let the scab fall off naturally when your skin is ready.  

Potential side effects of early scab removal:

  • Scars:  Pulling off the scab too early could leave a mark on the skin that is unwanted.
  • Infection Risk:  Your skin is vulnerable underneath the scab.  If you remove it early, you might introduce germs that can lead to infection.  
  • Longer healing Time:  Picking the scab can slow down the healing process.  Your skin needs time to rebuild properly. 


So, there you have it!  That tiny scab after your galvanic multi probe electrolysis treatment is a sign that your skin is hard at work healing itself.  Let it do its job and resist the temptation to pick or pull it off early.  Your body knows what it’s doing, and soon enough, you’ll have smooth, beautiful hair free skin to show for it – forever, and don’t forget the Melfol Balm.
