High Frequency skin therapy is a popular skincare technique that is widely used by prestigious spas and professional salons as an important component of many skincare treatment regimens.
Its many benefits include treating acne, enlarged pores, fine lines and wrinkles, puffy eyes, dark under eye circles, cellulite and, in some cases, thinning hair.
When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current pass through a neon, or argon gas filled glass electrode, causing it to emit a subtle glow and buzzing noise. Depending on the inert gas that they are filled with, the electrodes produce either a neon red/orange or violet/blue light. Traditionally, acne prone skin is treated with violet and aging skin is treated with red, however, recent studies show that both are effective regardless of the skincare concern.
During the high frequency treatment, enriched oxygen is produced which creates an anti-bacterial effect and a “natural” thermal tissue warming. This reaction helps your blood vessels push away toxins, while the cells in your skin are enriched with nutrients and hydrating volume. This creates an increase in local blood circulation and cell renewal that supports increased levels of collagen and elastin. The skin is left feeling instantly energized and noticeably softer after just one treatment.
High frequency has proven to be effective on almost any skin lesion from acne and burns, to waxing procedures and cold sores. High frequency facials are a safe, gentle and therapeutic approach to skin rejuvenation, quickly healing and restoring your skin’s health.
