High Frequency Facial Machines For Acne and Anti-Aging
(THP) Looking for a safe, gentle, non-invasive means to achieve acne clarification and/or skin rejuvenation in the comfort of your own home? Through the application of holistic oscillating electrical current, high frequency facial machines have been show to improve acne, soften fine lines, improve the appearance of puffy eyes, tighten and tone sagging skin and even promote healthier hair growth by rejuvenating the condition of the scalp.
High frequency skin care technology is widely recognized and used by spa and salon professionals throughout the world due to its simplicity of use and overall effectiveness. A variety of personal skin care machines are starting to emerge, allowing the consumer the option of low cost, in-home private skin care treatment. Options include professional-grade portable high frequency machines as well as personal facial wand kits for home use.
High frequency 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.
By the 1970’s, European spas and salons discovered the cosmetic and healing benefits of high frequency electrical stimulation and by 1980, the 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 many skin conditions ranging from acne to wrinkles.
Widely used by prestigious spas and professional salons throughout the world today, this gentle healing technology has become an important component of many facial and skin care treatment regimens, procedures and programs.
How It Works
Estheticians around the world rely on the power of high frequency to kick-start the skin rejuvenation process. The safe and gentle oscillating, oxygenating power of low level electrical current has been shown to enhance blood circulation, increase collagen and elastin production, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells and assist with improved skin care product absorption.
Such facial machines operate in conjunction with special glass electrodes which come in many different shapes and sizes. These electrodes are used to treat various areas of the body. When lightly touched to the surface of the skin or scalp, a mild high frequency electrical current passes through the neon or argon gas-filled glass electrode which then produces charged particles. This in turn causes the glass electrode to emit a calming energy in the form of an orange or violet ‘glow’. When applied to the skin, the subject will experience a mild zapping or buzzing sensation.
High frequency current stimulation forces an infusion of enriched oxygen molecules (holistic ozone) into the skin thereby cleansing, massaging, stimulating blood flow, dilating superficial blood vessels, re-texturizing, aiding in lymphatic drainage and promoting a pleasant sense of well-being. When touched to the skin, the high frequency electrode will produce either a neon-orange or neon-violet colored glow depending upon the inert gas that they are filled with.
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 skin cells enjoy a feast of increased nutrients and hydrating volume. This result is an improvement 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. High frequency has also been shown to maximize overall skin care product performance and absorption.
The application of low level electrical current also promotes a cleansing antibacterial action that helps eliminate and 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 the high frequency machine are safe and are also effective in treating almost any skin lesion from acne to burns, waxing procedures, cold sores, etc.
High frequency facial machines provide a gentle non-invasive alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Collagen and Botox injections and other invasive treatments. The results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and will not just “magically” occur over night. Although high frequency has been shown to produce an immediate and temporary lifting effect, continued daily application can provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results for those seeking an anti-aging alternative. Interestingly, many acne sufferers have found improvements in their complexions after only a few days of use. High frequency has been shown to be an effective treatment for acne, enlarged pores, fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, puffy eyes, dark eye circles, cellulite and even thinning hair.
Is High Frequency Treatment Considered Safe?
High frequency is a safe, holistic approach to skin rejuvenation treatment however the following precautions should always be taken: avoid using AHA or Glycolic Acid products with high frequency machines. Avoid contact with broken capillaries, spider veins and areas of rosacea. Do not use high frequency during pregnancy. Do not use if you have a pacemaker or heart disease history. Avoid wearing metal jewelry while using high frequency. Never operate a high frequency machine with a broken bulb. Do not use outdoors, near water or around combustible substances.

The more-common kind of macular degeneration, the dry kind, doesn't usually lead to such profound loss of vision in one day. I believe your mother is drawing some premature conclusions about what she faces. The macula is a small area on the retina, the back part of the eye that turns incoming light signals into electrical signals that are sent to the brain to allow us to see. The macula is about the size of a newsprint capital O. Small as that retinal area is, it carries on one of the biggest vision jobs. It's responsible for clear central vision, the kind needed to read, to watch TV, to recognize faces and to drive. Age is one important factor in developing macular degeneration. The condition is formally called age-related macular degeneration. Genes have a role. So does cigarette smoking.Read More
