Uses:
Used during Facial treatments either following extractions to kill bacteria on problem skin and assist in the healing process; and/or to enabling product penetration by increasing the temperature of the tissues.

Function:
The high frequency machine's function is to generate a rapidly oscillating current (Tesla current) that is transmitted to the skin of the client via glass electrodes. The current heats the skin and improves circulation. It also increases the absorption rate of skin products and acts as a germicide to kill harmful bacteria.

Process:
Assess the client’s skin concerns and conditions.
Decide on a method of treatment from the following:
1) Effluvation- contact treatment with one of the glass electrodes designed to raise the temperature of the skin.
Ideal for all skin types and concerns especially; mature, dry, aged skins.
2) Spark treatment- the glass electrode is held a very short distance from the skin to create a ‘spark’ the electrode needs to be moved around the area, so as not to burn the client. This produced a drying and germicidal effected to the treatment area with a gentle level of warmth.
Ideal for oily skin with break outs.
3) Saturation- the client holds the glass electrode and their entire body become saturated with the current. The therapist then treats the area of concern with fingertips and hands. The sensation is immediately felt under the areas of contact. ( the client needs to be holding the electrode before it is turned on).
Ideal for mature, dry, aged skin and those that are unsure of direct contact.
Place the desired electrode into the hand piece.

All treatments should start with a mild current (1 or 2) and gradually increase to the strength needed. The length of the treatment depends upon the condition but generally three to five minutes should be sufficient.
