What is a High Frequency Facial?

Our High Frequency Facial uses a specialized wand that emits a mild electrical current through the skin. This innovative treatment addresses a range of skin concerns, such as acne, enlarged pores, and fine lines, by boosting blood circulation, expelling toxins, and refreshing the skin. Think of it as a mini spa session designed to rejuvenate your complexion.

How It Works?

The procedure involves a unique wand containing a glass electrode filled with either neon or argon gas. When our esthetician applies it to your skin, the wand generates a high-frequency current that targets specific skin conditions.

The electrical current oxygenates the skin, creating an antibacterial effect that is particularly beneficial for those with acne-prone skin. This technology, originally developed by Nikola Tesla in the 1800s for medical purposes, has since evolved into a versatile skincare treatment.

By our high-frequency facial, your skin can benefit in:

  • Combating acne
  • Promoting collagen production
  • Improving overall skin texture

What to Expect During the Treatment?

The session begins with a thorough consultation to understand your skin concerns, followed by cleansing and gentle exfoliation to prep your skin.

Our skilled estheticians then use a unique wand with a glass electrode, filled with neon or argon gas, to apply a mild high-frequency current according to the direct or indiect method. The wand can be of many shapes according to your skin needs:

  • Mushroom: Great for treating your cheeks, forehead, and neck.
  • Point: For spot treatment
  • Comb: For the scalp.
  • Spoon: Good for the cheeks, forehead, and neck.

The process targets specific areas like acne spots, fine lines, and enlarged pores, providing a mild tingling sensation that indicates the treatment is working.

The facial concludes with a soothing mask tailored to your skin type, leaving your skin refreshed and radiant with no downtime.

Our Hf treatment will cost you around $80 to $150 per session, if you have more queries then contact us or book your time slot today!

Does It Hurt?

No, it is considered safe and painless, but some patients can experience a mild tingling or buzzing sensation during the procedure. However, this sensation is usually temporary and not uncomfortable. In fact, many patients find the treatment relaxing, with a mild warming sensation that can help reduce stress and tension in the facial muscles.

Also, HF does not have any side effects.

What Results Can You Expect from After the HF Facial?

Immediately after our treatment, you can expect your skin to feel refreshed and revitalized, with a radiant glow.

Over time, the antibacterial properties of the high-frequency current help reduce acne breakouts, minimize pore size, and improve overall skin texture.

The treatment also promotes collagen production, leading to firmer, tighter skin and a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. Regular sessions can enhance these benefits, resulting in clearer, smoother, and more youthful-looking skin.

Recommended Aftercare:

To maximize the benefits of your facial and maintain your skin’s health, here are our aftercare tips:

  1. Hydration: We recommend keeping your skin well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a gentle, hydrating moisturizer.
  2. Avoid Sun Exposure: Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30, and avoid excessive sun exposure for at least 48 hours post-treatment.
  3. Gentle Skincare: Our estheticians recommend Using mild, non-abrasive cleansers and avoiding using exfoliants or strong active ingredients (like retinol or glycolic acid) for at least 48 hours to prevent irritation.
  4. No Touching: Avoid touching your face frequently to prevent introducing bacteria to freshly treated skin.
  5. Makeup: Try to avoid heavy makeup for the rest of the day to allow your skin to breathe and recover.

Remember, each individual’s skin is different so the post treatment care also will be different, our estheticians will recommend you a more personalized routine after the treatment.
