BENEFITS OF HIGH FREQUENCY WITH SPA SERVICES
What are High Frequency Facial Treatments?
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.
In addition, high frequency facial treatments result in an improvement of the appearance of the skin as well as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.
How Does High Frequency Work?
High Frequency Currents ignite the gas inside the glass electrode. Once the gas ignites, light energy is given off to form electricity. The oxygen in the air around the electrode is then electrified and creates ozone gas. In order for the ozone to form, a small space between the electrode and skin must be created. When the created ozone gas is close to the skin’s surface, it provides a germicidal, healing and drying effect.
The direct application utilizes the formation of ozone to produce a germicidal effect on the skin. 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.
