High Frequency Machine


High frequency is a holistic treatment for many skin care concerns i.e., acne, enlarged pores, wrinkles, puffy or dark eyes, minimizes red inflamed skin and skin toning.

Nikola Tesla’s “the Violet Ray”.  It was the first version of High Frequency. It was largely used for medical purposes such as in the treatment of strep throat and other infections and to speed up the healing of wounds.

From 1970 to 1980 salons in Europe and North America discovered the cosmetic and healing benefits of high frequency electrical stimulation on the skin. It is a safe and non-invasive treatment for skin rejuvenation, burns, skin lesion, cold sores, warts, acne and hair loss.

The tempered glass electrodes come in a variety different shapes and sizes to benefit the various contours of the face and body. A glass electrode is applied to the surface of the skin.  It has a mild electrical current which passes through either a neon, or argon, inert gas filled glass electrode. It emits a subtle glow and buzzing noise. The neon electrodes produce either a red/orange colour and the argon electrode produces a violet/blue light. Acne prone skin is treated with violet and aging skin is treated with orange.  Recent studies show that both are effective regardless of the skincare concern. This contact ignites the inert gas within the electrode which produces healing electrical light energy and instantly converts into purifying ozone, when it’s mixed with the air outside of the electrode. The electrical current infuses the skin with rejuvenating oxygen molecules and a therapeutic zapping or tingling sensation is experienced depending how far the electrode is from the surface of the skin.

During the high frequency treatment, enriched oxygen molecules are produced that create a biocidal action and warms the skin. This reaction helps your blood vessels push away toxins, while the cells in your skin are enriched with nutrients and hydration. Blood circulation, collagen and elastin are increased. The high frequency aids in lymphatic drainage, detoxification and evenly disperses excess fluid and reduces puffiness. Clients experiencing cystic acne will benefit greatly from the deep penetrating germicidal action of high frequency.

High frequency oxygenates the surface of the skin, improving the overall texture, tone, and glow. The skin is left feeling instantly energized and noticeably softer after just one treatment

In Conclusion: The high frequency facial is used to treat and prevent stubborn acne, shrink enlarged pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, decongest puffy eyes, fade dark eye circles, exfoliate dead skin cells, improve skin care product absorption and reduce redness and even rejuvenate the condition of the scalp and nourish hair follicles for healthier hair growth.

It can be done alone or in combination with facials. Ask about

The oscillation rate of a high frequency machine is measured in Hertz, not by wattage. The wattage should be less than 10, combined with an oscillation rate greater than

100,000+ Hz.  Professional High frequency devices operate at a frequency of 100,000–2500,000+ Hertz cycles per second.


High frequency facials are a safe and gentle alternative to plastic surgery, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, Collagen and Botox injections and other invasive skin rejuvenation procedures. When using high frequency for anti-aging purposes, results can vary by individual and skin type. Results are gradual, and do not occur overnight! Although high frequency has been shown to produce an immediate and temporary lifting effect, as with anything, continued daily application can provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results.

1) An Improvement in Acne

The body can become immune to long term use of acne medications. Regular application of high frequency keeps the acne away when combined with an effective acne treatment product. High frequency destroys acne-causing bacteria and detoxifies and makes the skin more receptive to skin care products

2) A Reduction in Enlarged Pores & Blackheads

With consistent sessions, high frequency facials reduce the size of enlarged pores, soften skin, control excess sebum production and eliminate blackhead occurrence. The oxygen molecules produced by the high frequency current, reduce enlarged pores by penetrating deep down into the follicle and remove unwanted debris and toxins allowing the pore to quickly regain its natural size once again.

3) A Softening of Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Sagging Skin

The oscillating action of high frequency increases blood circulation, which in turn nourishes the skin and stimulates cellular growth. It also produces an enriched form of oxygen, which can provide the skin with a firm, youthful, vibrant glow. It can diminish the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tighten double chins and jowls and improve overall skin texture and tone by promoting increased collagen production

4) A Reduction in Eye Puffiness

The pulsating “oxygenation” action produced by high frequency current aids in lymphatic drainage and disperses excess fluid while increasing blood circulation. The result is a reduction in the appearance of congested, tired, puffy eyes. High frequency also helps the skin to absorb skin care products thereby extending their effectiveness.

5) A Fading of Dark Eye Circles and Redness

Scientific research has shown that severe dark eye circles to be broken capillaries that have leaked hemoglobin, creating a red-blue pigment deposit under the eyes. High frequency creates a circulation rush in the area and helps your current under eye product penetrate deeper into the skin tissue. The application of high frequency can be very effective at fading dark under eye circles and reducing redness.

6) An Improvement in The Appearance of Cellulite

The high frequency treatment can be very effective at reducing the appearance of cellulite when used in conjunction with a quality cellulite product. The oxygen molecule producing technology aids in lymphatic drainage, gently exfoliates the skin, increase blood circulation, and aids in the production of collagen and elastin and promote healthy cell metabolism. The result: smoother, firmer, more refined skin.

7) Healthier Hair Growth

Through its rapid oscillation, high frequency current improves local blood circulation gently exfoliates the skin, stimulates local glandular activity, supplies heat to the area which is soothing to the nervous system and significantly improves the scalp’s permeability to hair growth formulas.
