IN THIS ARTICLE:


The high frequency wand is an all-in-one treatment device that can address common cosmetic concerns, including pimples, wrinkles, and even hair loss. Does this beauty wand spark your curiosity? Are you afraid to use one at home because it involves the use of electrical current?

If you already know about the long list of benefits from using these skincare wands but are afraid to hold one at home, scroll down to learn more about this skin treatment.

What is a high frequency treatment? 

DEFINITION

High frequency is a skin treatment method that uses thermal current to increase the skin’s oxygen supply. This thermal energy is transferred onto the skin via electrodes containing an inert gas (argon or neon).

1. How Does A High Frequency Wand Work?

A high-frequency wand utilizes oscillating or moving electrical currents to effectively rejuvenate the skin. A typical portable high frequency wand is connected to a machine that generates low-level electricity, allowing the mild current to flow through the wand and into its bubble tip or electrode. As the tip makes contact with the skin's surface, the rejuvenation process begins.

To enhance the effects, the portable high-frequency wand is filled with argon or neon gas. Once the electrode touches the skin, the electric current ignites the inert gas, leading to a beneficial reaction that generates oxygen molecules with antibacterial properties. Additionally, this process induces natural warming, stimulating collagen production in the dermis.

Oxygen plays a crucial role in boosting the health of skin cells. It directly targets and eliminates bacteria, soothes the skin, promotes collagen production, and more. Thanks to the gentle and safe low-level current, the skin is rejuvenated with minimal to no downtime.

2. What can high frequency treatment do to the skin?

There are two types of high-frequency electrodes used in these wands: argon and neon gas. Each gas offers unique benefits for the skin rejuvenation process. 

Here are the high frequency wand benefits associated with each inert gas:

Here’s an ideal treatment plan for first time use: do 10 to 15-minute sessions, two to three times a week. Spend no more than five minutes per affected area to avoid irritation. 

Some more tips: remove any jewelry and metal accessories when preparing for a treatment. To prevent mild shock, do not remove your index finger until the electrode touches your skin. Carefully read through the instructions prior to first use.

Minor side effects such as redness, swelling, and tingling sensations are normal after each treatment session. These usually disappear in a few days. Treat freshly treated skin gently, do not use harsh cleansers and finish off with your preferred serum or moisturizing product.
