More Popular Esthetic Treatments Explained: High Frequency

The most popular and common esthetic treatment our clients provide is high frequency treatments. But what exactly is high frequency, what is the best way to perform these treatments, and why add these treatments to your spa menu?


High Frequency is used to enhance circulation,
increase collagen and elastin production, and
eliminate toxins and bacteria from the skin surface.
High frequency is used to kick-start the skin rejuvenation process. It has been shown to enhance circulation, increase production of collagen and elastin, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells, and assist with absorption of skin care products.

High frequency current stimulation forces an infusion of oxygen-rich molecules into the skin, which cleanses, massages, stimulates blood flow, and dilates superficial blood vessels. Because of the increased blood flow, high frequency tones the skin (similar to muscle toning). Application of high frequency current promotes a cleansing antibacterial action, and the skin is left feeling energized, rosy, firm, refreshed, and noticeably softer. The dilation of blood vessels pushes toxins away from the skin’s surface, and allows the skin cells to feast on increased nutrients and hydration.

How Does it Work?
With high frequency skin treatment, a chemical reaction causes the emission of ozone into the air. Ozone is a form of oxygen that has germicidal properties and is extremely beneficial for treating acneic skin. The more oxygen that surrounds the electrode, the more ozone is formed and the greater the effect. When the electrode is lifted away from the skin surface, more oxygen surrounds it, a more intense drying and healing action occurs. This method is called “Sparking”.

High frequency facial machines include glass electrodes which come in different shapes and sizes to treat various contours of the face and body. When applied to the surface of the skin, a mild electrical current passes through the neon or argon gas filled glass electrode causing it to emit a subtle glow. The electrodes produce varying intensities of infrared light and a pleasant, therapeutic tingling sensation which may be adjusted via a power control dial. High Frequency Electrodes produce either a neon orange or violet colored glow depending upon the inert gas that they are filled with. We have found that both colors produce equally effective results.


High frequency units come
with a variety of electrodes.
General Instructions for Usage
1. The esthetician holds the electrode and works in circular motions for 3-5 minutes.
2. Can be used directly on dry skin or lay dry gauze over the face. (The current has a more stimulating effect when applied over a dry cloth.)
3. All treatments should be started with a mild current, and gradually increase intensity.
4. “Sparking” is a technique used on acne blemishes and lesions. Sparking is accomplished by placing layers of dry cotton gauze over the skin, creating a gap between the skin and electrode. Upon treatment, the “spark gap” releases ozone from the electrode to destroy bacteria and aid in drying pustular infections. IMPORTANT: Never create a gap of more than ¼”, as tissue destruction can occur and the skin will heal leaving brownish marks.

Basic High Frequency Step-by-Step Instructions
1. Insert the chosen glass electrode into the high frequency machine; it should just snap in to place.
2. Turn the high frequency machine down to a zero level and turn it on. Wrap the cord around your arm once to keep the cord from dragging across the client's skin.
3. Hold the handle of the high frequency electrode in the hand that you normally work with. Place your index finger on the glass electrode. Do not remove your finger until the electrode is in contact with the client's skin. Removing the finger too early creates an uncomfortable spark effect on the client's skin.
4. Place the electrode on the client's skin and remove your finger. Increase the intensity to a comfortable setting. Glide the electrode over the face in a circular motion. Maintain continual contact, not pulling away more than ¼ inch. Start with the forehead, then move to the nose, cheeks and chin.
5. Treat problem areas such as individual blemishes by "sparking" the spot with the edge of the electrode. Place your finger on the electrode, touch the electrode to the spot and remove your finger. Quickly replace your finger on the electrode, remove the electrode from the face and repeat in another area.
6. Place your finger back on the electrode and remove it from the client's skin. Turn off the high frequency machine and sterilize the electrode.

Benefits
• Gentle, non-invasive alternative to plastic surgery
• Immediate (temporary) lifting effect
• Soften and smoothes away fine lines and wrinkles
• Reduces large pores
• Effective acne treatment
• Reduces dark circles around eyes
• Stimulates healthy hair growth (comb attachment)
• Decongest puffy eyes

Further Details on Benefits
1. Acne: Sometimes the body can become immune to certain acne medications if used over an extended period of time. When combined with an effective acne treatment lotion, regular application of high frequency keeps the acne away long after other expensive medications and treatments can fail. High frequency gently cleanses the skin of acne-causing bacteria and unwanted toxins while making the skin more receptive to acne lotions, creams and other skin treatment products. The results can be extremely dramatic - even after only a few treatments!
2. Enlarged Pores: With regular use, high frequency skin care treatment can be very effective at reducing the size of enlarged pores, softening skin and controlling excess sebum production. The gentle spray of oxygen molecules produced by the high frequency current diminish enlarged pores by penetrating deep down into the root of the affected area and cleaning out unwanted debris and toxins allowing the pore to quickly regain its natural size once again.
3. Fine Lines, Wrinkles, and Sagging Skin: The oscillating action of high frequency can increase blood circulation, which in turn nourishes the skin's surface and renews underlying cells. 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. Puffy Eyes: 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 more efficiently absorb skin care products thereby extending their effectiveness.
5. Dark Eye Circles: New scientific research has shown the cause of 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 resulting in a fresher, brighter, more youthful looking appearance.
6. Cellulite: With regular use, high frequency treatment can be very effective at reducing the appearance of cellulite when used in conjunction with a quality cellulite product. For years, the skin care industry has relied on this same high frequency, oxygen molecule producing technology to aid in lymphatic drainage, gently exfoliate the skin, increase blood circulation, assist in the production of collagen and elastin and promote healthy cell metabolism. The result: smoother, firmer, more refined skin.
7. Thinning Hair: Through its rapid oscillation, high frequency current improves the process of nourishment, gently exfoliates the skin, promotes local blood circulation, stimulates local glandular activity, supplies heat to the area which is soothing to the nervous system and significantly improves the scalp's receptiveness to and the overall effectiveness of post-treatment hair growth formulas. For many years, hairdressers have used high frequency current technology to revitalize scalp conditions which can aid in promoting healthier hair growth.

Safety Precautions
1. Avoid using AHA or Glycolic Acid products with high frequency machines. 
2. Avoid contact with broken capillaries, spider veins and areas of rosacea. 
3. Do not use high frequency during pregnancy (although there is NO clear evidence stating side effects). 
4. Do not use if your client has a pacemaker, heart disease history, or epilepsy. 
5. Avoid wearing metal jewelry while using high frequency. Avoid use on clients with braces.
6. Never operate a high frequency machine with a broken bulb. 
7. Do not use outdoors, near water or around combustible substances.

5 in 1 Facial Functions Right at Your Fingertips!

Multifunction units are great for saving space and having all the necessary functions for facials readily available. However, table top units are even better for this! The 5 in 1 Multifunction unit by SkinMate packs in 5 of the top desired functions, all while being super compact. This unit consists of High Frequency, Galvanic, Vacuum and Spray, and a Rotary Facial Brush. You will have everything you need right at your fingertips with this 5 in 1 multifunction facial unit!

Check out all of the included functions:
    High Frequency: High frequency is a popular treatment method known for it's germicidal decongesting, energizing and stimulating action. The primary action of the High Frequency Machine is thermal, or heat producing, because of the rapid oscillation of the frequency there are no muscular contractions. The physiological effects are either stimulating or soothing, depending on the method of application. All treatments given with high-frequency should be started with a mild current and gradually increased to the required strength.

    Galvanic: Galvanic current is used to create two significant reactions in esthetics: chemical (disincrustation) and ionic (iontophoresis). Galvanic facial machines convert oscillating current from an electrical outlet into a direct current. Electrons are then allowed to flow continuously in the same direction. This creates a relaxation response that can be used to target specific nerve endings in the epidermis.

    Vacuum: The Vacuum is similar to a miniature household vacuum cleaner. It cleans pores by suctioning out deeply embedded dirt and oil, while simultaneously giving your client a deep, penetrating massage. Increases blood circulation, loosens comedones for removal and helps eliminate wrinkles.

    Spray: The spray is generally used at the beginning of the facial to remove any cleanser or exfoliating cream residue or at the end of the treatment to remove a mask and eliminate the residues. The spray is also used to flush out the freshly vacuumed pores, thoroughly cleaning the surface of your client's skin.

    Rotary Facial Brush: Rotating brushing system, includes a variety of attachments for different purposes. Lightweight for easy to handle, quiet and convenient for shaft hook-up to allow easy access. Your clients can relax and enjoy the soft massage while the brush deep cleanses into pores to remove any dirt and debris.

    This is perfect for mobile use, small treatment rooms, or anywhere you are needing to save space!

    Review: Aromatherapy Associates Aroma Radiance Lift Facial with Microcurrent at The Mandarin Oriental, Boston

    Rose Infinity Products
    Add Intense Results
    to Aroma Lift Facial
    I have enjoyed some amazing facials in this job. From the far East to South America, I have been pulled, poked, prodded, zapped, lasered and tasered with just about every device on the market! In my perpetual quest for a time machine of youth, I have tried many techniques, products and devices to see what tones, tightens and creates a noticeable improvement in appearance.

    I recently had the privilege of a 90 minute facial while visiting The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, Boston. I chose this facial because the assistant at the Spa's front desk said it was their, "most popular, results driven treatment" and clients all left "tightened, toned and radiant."  My curiosity was peaked, the appointment was booked and my gosh, the results were extraordinary.

    The facial is performed using the Aromatherapy Associates Aroma Lift Machine that delivers professional levels of Micro current, Galvanic and High Frequency to the skin. This luxury treatment actually tones facial muscles, minimizing the appearance of fine lines and re-hydrates skin, giving an overall toned, firm and lifted look and feel that was promised.

    My exceptional esthetician, Melinda had a sophisticated knowledge of how to use the microcurrent wands to re-shape my facial and neck muscles. There was an Aromatherapy Associates Enzymatic Peel to brighten up my complexion and a professional Vitamin C topical that was used to address my sun spots. All of this intertwined with lymphatic drainage, micro circulation, galvanic, high frequency and lifting movements to tone the skin.  This treatment is completed by intense hydration from the Rose Infinity Moisturizer that left my skin supremely firm and nourished.The Aromatherapy Associates Rose Infinity line was used throughout the treatment and was gentle, yet effective on my fragile skin.

    Melinda focused on my areas of concern; neck, eyes, forehead and jowls. At the end of the treatment everything was lifted and my face felt like it had a 60 minute muscle workout - I could feel that my entire face was tightened from deep within. I could not stop staring in the mirror for the next three days, it was truly like a face lift! The results lasted about a week.

    I am now a HUGE fan of micro current, even though I have tried it before - my results after this treatment were unmatched to previous treatments I have had. I think this is strongly in part to Melinda's technique, extensive training, and the professional skin care that makes this treatment so successful for myself and guests. It is important to have advanced training and knowledge of the face and neck's natural acupressure points and muscle structure in order for the treatment to get the results that keep the clients re-booking and referring their friends.
