A disposable patch is being developed which will allow consumers to perform galvanic beauty treatments at home, a procedure that can currently only be carried out by beauticians.

The VTT Technical Resource Centre in Finland has created the product, which is patent pending. It differs from existing models in its functioning mechanism and power production; the energy it needs to run is generated from sugar and air, with the help of enzymes. This creates a low-running electric current, but it is minimal and causes no discomfort.
