What is High Frequency treatment?

High frequency treatment, also known as high frequency facial or high frequency current therapy, is a cosmetic treatment that uses high frequency electrical currents to stimulate the skin and underlying tissues. It is typically used to improve the appearance of the skin and treat a variety of skin concerns, such as acne, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone.

During a high frequency treatment, a handheld device that emits high frequency electrical currents is used to massage the skin. The device may be fitted with a range of attachments, each designed for a specific treatment area or skin concern. For example, a glass electrode may be used to stimulate circulation and increase the production of collagen, while a mushroom-shaped electrode may be used to treat acne-prone skin.

High frequency treatment is performed at Charizma Salon | Spa as an add on service with our facials. The treatment typically lasts for 15-30 minutes and is usually provided as an add on to a facial.

There are several potential benefits to high frequency treatment, including:

  • Improved circulation: The high frequency electrical currents stimulate blood flow, which can improve the overall appearance and health of the skin.
  • Increased collagen production: Collagen is a protein that helps to keep the skin firm and youthful-looking. High frequency treatment can stimulate the production of collagen, leading to firmer, smoother skin.
  • Acne reduction: High frequency treatment can help to kill bacteria on the skin and reduce inflammation, which can help to prevent and treat acne breakouts.
  • Wrinkle reduction: The stimulation of collagen production can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Improved skin texture: High frequency treatment can help to exfoliate the skin, leaving it feeling smoother and more radiant.

While high frequency treatment is generally considered safe, there are a few potential risks to consider. The most common side effect is mild skin irritation or redness, which should subside within a few hours of the treatment. It is important to inform us of any allergies or sensitive skin conditions you may have prior to the treatment, as this will help them adjust the treatment accordingly.

High frequency treatment may not be suitable for everyone. People with certain medical conditions, such as pacemakers or metallic implants, should not undergo this treatment. Pregnant women and nursing mothers should also avoid high frequency treatment.

Overall, high frequency treatment can be a safe and effective way to improve the appearance and health of the skin, as long as it is performed by a trained and qualified professional and any potential risks are taken into consideration.
