What Is A High Frequency Facial?
The high frequency facial is a skin care treatment used by professionals to help treat and
prevent stubborn acne, shrink enlarged pores, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles,
decongest puffy eyes, fade dark eye circles, rejuvenate the condition of the scalp and nourish
hair follicles for healthier hair growth.
The Main Differences Between Orange and Violet High-Frequency Electrodes
Quality high-frequency electrodes are typically made of tempered glass and filled with either
1) argon gas which produces a subtle violet colored glow, or
2) neon gas which produces an orange glow. The high-frequency electrode acts as a safe
conductor of the current. High frequency is a wonderful holistic treatment offering a host of
benefits for many skin care concerns ranging from acne to wrinkles.
Electrode Color Gas Function
Orange Neon For treating aging skin, scalp and hair
Violet Argon For treating acne, scalp and hair
Traditionally, the violet electrode is used by professionals to treat acne prone skin. An extremely
small amount of ultra-violet light is emitted when the violet electrode makes contact with the skin.
Such brief and low level UV exposure is considered very safe (non-skin damaging) and provides
excellent anti-bacterial and healing benefits.
The orange electrodes are generally indicated in the treatment of aging skin because they are said
to direct more warmth to the treatment area which promotes blood circulation, encourages cellular
turnover and improves product penetration.
