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.
