How to familiarize with the operation and immediate effects of AC electrical arc generators for aesthetic purposes.
Since the use of electrical arcs sometimes seems quite daunting at the very beginning, this video will guide you through the basics in the operation of Voltaic arc for aesthetic applications. So the main purpose of the experiments you are about to watch is for you to learn the basic principles, so that, with enough practice, you will gain the confidence you require to then start to apply these basic principles for aesthetic purposes. For convenience, the test subjects are: chicken wings, beef steaks and chicken legs, found at any local butcher.
As you will see in this video the carbonisation effects of AC electrical arcing (or also referred to as plasma) are dependent on three main factors:
→ How long the arc has been applied for at any point
→ The power output of the specific device you are using
→ When the voltaic arc is applied in spray mode, the speed of movement of the electrode while the arc takes place.
In this video we will show you the basics of the "spot operation" and the "Spray operation". These two modalities of operation are the two fundamental ways of using, voltaic arc for aesthetic purposes.
For the purposes of the type of device we are using in this demonstration, and ease of operation, if you are right-handed, grab the device as if it is a large pen in this way. This way if you are left-handed.
Position the bottom of your palm on a stable hard surface, be it the forehead of your client or any other hard and stable surface available on your client's body. This will allow you the maximum degree of control of operation by simply moving your wrist in this way. Often, during the first attempt on using an electrical arc generator, people tend to touch the skin (or surface) with the tip of the electrode. As you can see, at very low power, this has no or very little effect on the test meat or the skin. The best way to practice and learn how to generate the arc with this particular device is to increase the power setting of the device and slowly moving the tip of the electrode closer to the surface until the arc takes place. This exercise will help you familiarise with the way voltaic arcs are initiated.
With this portable device, operated at minimum power, there is very little effect if the tip of the electrode touches the working surface or skin. Generally, in order to generate the arc, the electrode has to be kept at a minimum distance from the skin before the arc takes place. With this battery operated device, when set at very low power and the electrode touches the skin or any particular surface, the arc extinguishes and there will be little effects on the skin or the soft tissue (ie mole or benign skin lesion).
