What Do High Frequency Treatments Do For The Skin?


So what is it?

The high frequency device consists of a hand held wand with a glass electrode on the end. When in use, the electrode produces a small electrical current (Tesla Current), ozone, & argon gas. Your esthetician glides this wand over your skin or directly to a specific area, you may sense a mild warming sensation in the skin & hear a buzzing sound.

What does it do?

The benefits of this device include: antibacterial effects, healing, stimulated circulation & collagen, reduced inflammation, oxygenation of the skin, as well as increased cell metabolism. 

Who should receive this treatment?

Most can benefit by receiving high frequency in a facial treatment. Those that would benefit the most from this device are individuals who suffer from acne, enlarged pores, & oiliness. Other candidates for this treatment include those with lack luster skin, aging, or simply those looking to just "refresh" their skins appearance. High frequency is also great after waxing services for those that often breakout after receiving their wax from a professional. 

Be sure to talk with your esthetician to see if this treatment is right for you, there are some contraindications that may prevent you from receiving high frequency.
