TOOLS & PROCEDURES
Direct High Frequency Facial Therapy
High frequency treatments are used to stimulate, sanitize and heal the skin. Used for years, this type of treatment is designed to provide high frequency currents that generate warmth in the skin and stimulate nerve endings, in turn increasing blood circulation, nourishing the skin and improving product penetration within the skin. By increasing skin metabolism, high frequency ozone facials encourage healthy cell function and promote skin healing. Direct high frequency offers the results of treating dry and dehydrated skin by increasing the activity in the sebaceous and soporiferous glands and causing a skin warming effect. Direct high frequency ozone provides benefits for those with blemish prone and acneic type skin by killing bacteria and eliminating oils.
It consists of a high frequency machine with a glass electrode attachment. This glass electrode is filled with either argon gas (blue/ violet colour) or neon gas (orange/red color), by placing the glass electrode on the skin or leaving a gap between the skin and the electrode a germicidal, drying and healing effect is created for acne, oily, congested or seborrheic skins.
Direct high frequency treatment is an external application that produces a germicidal effect through the ozone formation on the skins surface via the glass electrode. For oily skin, a drying effect is created that kills bacteria and eliminates excess sebum. For dry skin, a warming effect is created that increases activity in the glands and nourishes the skin.
High frequency treatment has been around for over 50 years, it is simple and the results are fast and effective with no down time at all. Can be used as an add-on in almost all facial treatments or can be a stand alone 15 minute treatment for those stubborn breakouts!
Improves the condition of oily areas, Drying excess oil/seborrhea.
Anti-bacterial and germicidal: Helps destroy any bacteria present through the creation of ozone which has an anti-bacterial, germicidal effect on the surface of the skin.
Increases cellular activity/metabolism.
Improves the moisture balance of the skin.
Improves the appearance of the skin as well as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
Healing, increased blood flow (white blood cells) and warmth
