Tesla Facials are HERE! Tesla facials employ high frequency - an amazing, non-invasive method to treat and prevent stubborn acne, shrink enlarged pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, decongest puffy eyes, fade dark eye circles, and rejuvenate the condition of the scalp and nourish hair follicles for healthier hair growth.
High frequency was founded in the 1800 by our favorite inventor, Nikola Tesla, as a way to kill bacteria and fight infections. Less bacteria is of course great for combating acne and breakouts, but high frequency does much more.
What is high frequency?
The safe, gentle of the high frequency current infuses the skin with oxygen and has been shown to enhance blood circulation, increase collagen and elastin production, eliminate toxins and acne-causing bacteria, encourage lymphatic drainage, exfoliate dead skin cells and improve skin care product absorption.
The primary action of high frequency current is thermal (heat producing) and is characterized by a high rate of oscillation. Due to its rapid rate of oscillation, high frequency does not cause muscular contractions - instead, it works on the principle of skin toning.
How does it work?
High frequency machines work by producing a gentle alternating electrical current which then passes through a glass electrode upon contact with the skin. This contact ignites the inert gas within the electrode which produces healing electrical light energy and unstable oxygen which instantly converts into purifying ozone. In other words, when mixed with the air outside of the electrode, the electrical current infuses the skin with rejuvenating oxygen molecules and a therapeutic zapping or mild tingling sensation is experienced.
In treating aging skin, high frequency current firms and tones by causing an immediate circulation rush to the skin in addition to subtle tissue warming. These functions cause a very safe and natural contraction of the underlying blood vessels and tiny muscle groups. The dilation of the underlying vessels pushes away toxins, while the cells enjoy increased nutrients and hydrating volume.
This result is in an increase in blood circulation and cell renewal as well as increased production levels of collagen and elastin which soften and smooth away wrinkles, reduce pore size and improve overall skin texture.
The application of high frequency current to the skin also promotes a natural cleansing and antibacterial action that helps treat existing acne and prevents the onset of new acne. Those who experience chronic, cystic acne will benefit greatly from the deep penetrating germicidal action of high frequency.
What are the benefits?
High frequency facials offer a safe and gentle alternative to dramatic plastic surgery procedures, laser resurfacing, chemical peels, injections and other invasive skin recovery procedures. When using high frequency for anti-aging purposes, results can vary by individual and skin type, are gradual, and do not occur overnight!
Although high frequency has been shown to produce an immediate and temporary lifting effect, continued daily application can provide more cumulative long-term, lasting results. Interestingly, many acne sufferers have found improvements in their complexions after only a few days of use.
The major benefits of high frequency include:
Softening fine lines and wrinkles
Firming and toning sagging skin
Clears acne and refines large pores
Relieves area puffiness
Renews skin texture and tone
Promotes healthier hair growth
Enhances skin care product penetration
The skin is left feeling instantly energized, rosy, firm, refreshed and noticeably softer - even after just one treatment. The enriched oxygen molecules produced by high frequency machines are safe and have been proven to be effective in helping to heal and restore the skin's health. High frequency is used to treat a range of concerns from skin lesions, acne, waxing procedures and cold sores to fine lines, sagging skin and puffy eyes. Common areas of treatment include the face, neck and scalp but high frequency can be used on the entire body including the back.
