What is High Frequency?
This treatment uses a high frequency current that alternates up to 100,000 cycles per second. Direct high frequency can be applied directly onto the skin or over a layer of gauze of the face or body to stimulate, disinfect and heal the skin. This facial treatment uses a glass electrode that is gently moved over the surface of the skin. It can be recommended for clients with oily and congested skin as ozone gas is produced by this method, which is beneficial to these skin conditions.
