High Frequency

Looking for a safe, gentle, and non-invasive method to achieve acne clarification and skin rejuvenation? Through the application of holistic oscillating electrical current, high frequency facial has been show to improve acne, soften fine lines, improve the appearance of puffy eyes, tighten and tone sagging skin.

WHAT IS HIGH FREQUENCY?

High frequency (also known as the Tesla high frequency current) current was first developed in the late 1800′s by renowned scientist Nikola Tesla. While it offers a number of functions, prior to the invention of ‘modern’ antibiotics, it was largely used for medical purposes such as an anti-bacterial treatment for strep throat and other infections.

French biophysicist D’Arsonval also did early work in the area of electrotherapy. In 1892 he introduced the use of high frequency currents to treat diseases of the skin and mucous membranes. High frequency is also commonly referred to as the D’Arsonval high frequency current.

By the 1970′s, European spas and salons discovered the cosmetic and healing benefits of high frequency electrical stimulation and by 1980; the technology became widely used in North American by skin care professionals. The safe, non-invasive technology was quickly found to be very beneficial in the treatment of acne.

HOW HIGH FREQUENCY DOES THE WORK AND HOW IT HELPS TO IMPROVE OUR SKIN COMPLEXION?

All high frequency treatment machines using glass High Frequency Electrodes which come in many different shapes and sizes to treat various contours of the face and body. When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current passes through the neon or argon gas filled glass electrode causing it to emit a subtle glow. The electrodes produce varying intensities of light and a pleasant, therapeutic tingling sensation which may be adjusted via a power control dial.

All High Frequency Electrodes produce either a neon red / orange light or violet / blue light depending upon the inert gas that they are filled with. Traditionally, violet electrodes have been used by professionals to treat acne prone skin and the orange electrodes have been used to treat aging skin. We have found that both colors produce equally effective results regardless of skin care concern.

High frequency current works on skin toning rather than muscle toning by causing a circulation rush to the skin in addition to partial thermal tissue warming. This function will cause a “natural” contraction of underlying blood vessels and tiny muscle groups. The dilation of the underlying vessels pushes away toxins, while the cells enjoy a feast of increased nutrients and hydrating volume. This result is an increase in blood circulation and cell renewal. Increased production levels of Collagen and Elastin soften and smooth away wrinkles, reduce pore size and improve overall skin texture.

The application of high frequency current also promotes a cleansing antibacterial action that helps prevent the onset of acne. The skin is left feeling instantly energized, rosy, firm, refreshed and noticeably softer – even after just one treatment. The enriched oxygen molecules produced by high frequency machines is safe and has been proven to be effective on almost any skin lesion from acne to burns, waxing procedures, cold sores, etc. and helps to quickly heal and restore the skin’s health.
