High Frequency Acne Treatment FAQs
How does High Frequency Work?
A mild low level alternating electrical current is generated by the high frequency machine which then passes through the attached glass electrode upon contact with the skin. The electrical current ignites the gas inside the electrode and healing electrical light energy is produced. When mixed with the air outside of the electrode, the electrical current creates and infuses the skin with purifying and rejuvenating oxygen molecules.
Is High Frequency Safe?
Yes. The safe and gentle oscillating and oxygenating power of high frequency 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 improve skin care product absorption.
