What is High Frequency?

💡The first high frequency appliance was developed in the late 1800’s by scientist Nikola Tesla and referred to as the Violet Ray. Before the invention of modern antibiotics it was largely used for medical purposes such as in the treatment of strep throat and other infections and to expedite the healing of wounds.

🔬French biophysicist Jacques-Arsène d’Arsonval also did early work in the area of electrotherapy. In 1892 he introduced the use of high frequency currents to treat diseases of the skin and mucous membranes. High frequency is traditionally referred to as “D’Arsonval high frequency” or the “Tesla current”.

🔬In the 1970’s, European salons discovered the cosmetic and healing benefits of high frequency electrical stimulation on the skin and by 1980, the technology became widely used in North America by skin care professionals. Considered a safe and non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation, high frequency technology became quickly recognized as the leading treatment for many skin conditions ranging from acne and wrinkles to hair loss. During the high frequency treatment, enriched oxygen molecules are produced that create an anti-bacterial action and natural thermal tissue warming. This reaction helps blood vessels push away toxins, while cells in your skin are enriched with nutrients and hydrating volume. This creates an increase in blood circulation and cell renewal that supports increased levels of collagen and elastin. The skin is left feeling instantly energized and softer after just one treatment.

🧬High frequency has proven to be effective on almost any skin lesion from acne and burns, to waxing procedures and cold sores. High frequency facials are considered to be a safe, gentle and therapeutic approach to skin rejuvenation, quickly healing and restoring your skin’s health.
