The high-frequency electrodes can be filled with two types of inert gas:
- Argon gas – which produces a subtle violet glow
- Neon gas – which produces an orange glow
Argon gas is used to help treat existing acne and prevent future breakouts. The production of ozone will successfully target and inhibit the acne-producing bacteria.
It produces a deeply penetrating germicidal and drying effect in order to treat the most severe cases of acne. The enriched oxygen molecules produced by high-frequency machines are effective in helping to heal and revitalize the skin.
Direct high-frequency also regulates sebum production and combats oiliness on the surface on the skin. Neon gas is used in treating aging skin because it has a toning effect and stimulates blood vessels, thus improving skin color. It brings warmth to the area and this promotes blood circulation and encourages cellular turnover.
Reducing eye puffiness – the oxygenating action produced by high-frequency current aids in lymphatic drainage and removes excess fluid and toxins while increasing blood circulation.
The result is a visible improvement in the appearance of congested and tired eyes as well as puffiness.
Reducing dark undereye circles – overly dilated and broken capillaries can become visible under the thin skin around the eye area.
High-frequency creates a circulation rush in the area, delivering oxygen to hydrate and revitalize the skin. Good circulation will also allow for better penetration of undereye creams, resulting in a brighter and youthful-looking appearance.
