High Frequency Electrotherapy…. a little known treatment with big results!

High Frequency Electrotherapy is a rejuvenating treatment used in the skin care industry. High frequency is a noninvasive modality that uses a glass electrode filled with argon gas to pass a mild electrical current to the skin’s surface. The glass electrodes emit either a neon red/orange or a violet/blue light depending on the inert gas that they are equipped with. Violet/blue gas is used to treat acne prone skin while the red/orange gas is used on older/aging skin. This modality has been shown to stimulate skin cell renewal. The heat is produced by the high rate of oscillation. This treatment is a safe and gentle therapeutic skin rejuvenation, due to the gentle oscillating electrical current and offers several benefits such as:

● Enhancing circulation through oxygen
● Increasing collagen and the skin’s elasticity
● Reduces bacteria that causes acne
● Encouraging lymphatic drainage
● Improving skin care product absorption

The added benefit of a high frequency treatment is that enriched oxygen molecules are produced creating an anti-bacterial action as well as a “natural” skin warming. This causes dilation of the blood vessels underneath, enriching the skin with nutrients and hydrating volume that gives you, energized, rosy firm skin.

I often recommend this treatment for acne and to calm the skin. This is also a great add on treatment to a facial, microdermabrasion or a dermaplane appointment. Always be sure to talk with your skin care provider first to determine if high frequency is right for you.

What are CoolTouch treatments and who gets them?

Recently over lunch with friends, the discussion turned to several anti-aging options that help recapture a youthful appearance and lift a sagging neckline. Besides a quality skincare line which is a must at any age – a simple answer, CoolTouch CT3 Plus treatments. For those men and women who are seeking a non-invasive anti-aging treatment to improve their skin and appearance, laser rejuvenation treatments are something they may want to seriously consider.

The CoolTouch laser treatment, known as CoolBreeze™, is the “gold standard” of care for wrinkle reduction, acne and acne scarring. This laser treatment targets the layers of skin where collagen is formed and diminishes the appearance of many age-related skin concerns including wrinkles, lines, acne scars, and accomplishes this without injury to the skin’s surface. Best of all, with no downtime after treatment, you can resume regular activities immediately after the procedure.

CoolBreeze treatments are completely non-invasive, as the laser light passes harmlessly through the upper layers of the skin to heat and stimulate the cells deep below the surface that produce natural collagen which adds firmness, and elasticity to the skin. The collagen and elastin fibers continue to multiply after your treatment, and you will continue to see collagen stimulation for several months. The CoolBreeze laser treatment can be performed on any facial area – around the eyes, mouth, cheeks, and chin, as well as the neck & decollete.

It is easy to see why there is such a Buzz about CoolTouch CT3 Plus laser treatments – the amazing results speak for themselves and can be life changing. A consultation will help determine your skin’s needs. This treatment can be safely used in conjunction with Dermaplane, Microderm, Chemical Peels, Botox, and Fillers to maximize patients overall results.
