Suppose you struggle with skin conditions like acne, fine lines, dark circles, puffy eyes, and enlarged pores.

High frequency is a popular skincare technique used to treat various skin conditions. 

To understand the concept of high frequency, learn more about its functionality, use, and benefits. Then, you can schedule your appointment for a high-frequency facial at Flawless in Miami.

What Is a High-Frequency Facial?

A high-frequency facial is an advanced facial technique that uses electric currents to rejuvenate the skin providing added benefits compared to traditional facial treatment. A high-frequency facial procedure is powerful, versatile, and effective that fixes different skin concerns.  

How Does High-Frequency Treatment Work?

High frequency safely stimulates the skin using thermal energy, which triggers blood flow and the production of collagen and elastin. This facial machine achieves these desired results by using different shapes and sizes of glass electrodes to treat various facial contours and bodies.

The high-frequency electrodes are filled with inert gas and allow electric current or thermal energy to go through them. When electric current from the high-frequency machine passes through the glass electrodes, it reacts with the gas inside the electrode, emitting oxygen molecules and causing a warm effect on the skin. The oxygen molecules are produced to create an anti-bacterial action by enabling blood to push away toxins, hydrating and enriching cells in the skin with nutrients. This reaction improves circulation and cell renewal, promoting increased collagen and elastin levels, leaving your skin soft and energized after treatment.

During the high-frequency facial treatment, the glass electrode produces a buzzing noise and emits a subtle glow with different colors depending on the gas in the electrode. The high-frequency glass electrodes are either filled with neon or argon gas; argon glows violet and treats acne and oily skin, while neon glows red and has anti-aging benefits.

What Is High Frequency Good for?

A high-frequency facial is considered a safe, effective, and gentle approach to treating a wide variety of common skin problems. It is good for improving the overall skin tone, glow, and texture, treating acne problems, stimulating lymphatic flow, evenly dispersing excess fluids, and stimulating collagen and elastin production. 

Even though high-frequency facial is effective and safe for many people, there are important factors to be considered, such as:

  • High frequency should not be used on women with heart conditions, pregnancy, cancer, or hypersensitive skin.
  • Avoid using Glycolic acid products with high frequency.
  • Aestheticians must avoid contact with broken capillaries, spider veins, and areas of rosacea.

Does High-Frequency Kill Bacteria?

The skin's surface is oxygenated during a high-frequency facial, stimulating circulation. As a result, the skin is detoxified, killing the pimple-inducing stuff and the stubborn acne-causing bacteria.

What Are the Benefits of High-Frequency Treatment?

Here are some high-frequency facial benefits ladies in Miami need to know if they are considering having this skin care treatment:

  • Tightens and firms the skin

High frequency stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, which are responsible for maintaining firmness and elasticity on the skin. This boost in production helps in firming ladies' facial contours, smoothing wrinkles, and reducing fine lines giving them a youthful look.

  • Great for treating acne 

When combined with an effective treatment lotion, high-frequency facial helps you manage acne by cleansing the skin of toxins and acne-causing bacteria. Your skin is more receptive to acne lotions and creams, improving your skin look.

  • Shrinks enlarged pores

High-frequency facials effectively reduce the size of enlarged pores since the oxygen molecules produced by high-frequency currents penetrate deep into the skin, cleaning out the unwanted waste and thereby allowing the pores to reduce to their natural size. 

  • No Downtime

High-frequency facial treatments are highly popular since they do not require a recovery time. So you might have one at the end of the day and be ready to apply your beauty products the next day.

There are many benefits to enjoy from high-frequency facials, but like any other beauty procedure or treatment, consult our aestheticians to know whether it will be good for you.
