Despite their design differences, the underlying functions of high frequency skin care machines are the same. These machines have a high rate of oscillation and produce heat. High frequency skin care machines minimize enlarged pores, treat acne and reduce fine facial lines. They also decongest puffy eyes, prevent the formation of dark eye circles, and rejuvenate the scalp.
High frequency machines offer a safe and mild means to achieve skin rejuvenation. They include a glass electrode, which emits a subtle glow that causes a therapeutic tingling sensation on the skin surface. The machines produce high-frequency electrical currents and infrared light. These improve blood circulation and infuse the skin with ozone molecules, destroying bacteria and promoting lymphatic drainage. High-frequency machines increase the elastin and collagen production of the skin and assist to exfoliate dead skin cells. They also produce skin and muscle toning. Through the mild tissue warming effect and increased circulation in the upper layers of skin, underlying blood vessels begin to contract and force out toxins in the process. Increased blood circulation allows for cell renewal, while the elevated levels of collagen improve skin texture. Another function of high-frequency current application is the antibacterial function it performs. These machines produce mild heat and ozone that leaves the skin feeling rejuvenated and looking and feeling firmer and softer.
The application of high-frequency electrical current destroys acne-causing bacteria strains and removes toxins from the skin surface. Skin that has undergone high-frequency treatment is also more receptive to topical acne treatments.
By controlling excess sebum production and making for a softer skin tone, high-frequency skin treatment reduces enlarged pores. The ozone produced by these machines works its way to the pore to oxidize any accumulated debris, thereby allowing the pore to revert to its original shape.
Fine Lines and Wrinkles
A main function of high-frequency skin care equipment is to increase blood circulation and give the skin-enriched oxygen in the form of ozone. The result of ozone application and increased circulation, makes for toned and nourished skin, which renews skin cells and diminishes the appearance of lines.
Puffy Eyes and Dark Eye Circles
The pulsating action of high-frequency skin care machines assists in lymphatic drainage and removes excess fluid, both of which reduce congested and puffy eyes. These machines increase blood circulation and make the skin more receptive to the benefits of topically applied creams and lotions.
