High Frequency Wands use small currents of targeted thermal energy to create an ozone that oxygenates the skin and increases circulation. The oscillations also encourage lymphatic drainage and help disperse fluid buildup. Patients will experience a smoother, fuller appearance, as skin is tightened and lines and wrinkles are reduced or eliminated. With on-going treatments, your results can be much longer lasting.
These contraindications are specific to high frequency: epilepsy, pregnancy, heart conditions, pacemaker, metal plates or pins, excessive fillings or bridgework, cancer within the last 2 years, thrombosis, diabetes, recent Botox or fillers (please wait at least two weeks) any condition that reduces sensation on the face, the recent use for retinol, roaccutane or acids, all jewellery will need to be removed for the treatment. High Frequency will not be used to treat over areas of broken capillaries, spider veins and rosacea.
High frequency is a safe and gentle procedure with no downtime. You will need to protect your skin with moisturizer and sun block for 48 hours after the treatment and may experience mild redness and sloughing/peeling. Avoid applying cosmetics for 24 hours. Drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin naturally.
