High frequency is used to treat a range of concerns from skin lesions, acne, waxing procedures and cold sores to fine lines, sagging skin and puffy eyes. Common areas of treatment include the face, neck and scalp but high frequency can be used on the entire body including the back.


At one time, high frequency treatments were considered an essential staple for skin revitalizing treatments by estheticians. Today, there are fewer salons, spas or clinics that offer these treatments to clients. This I believe may be due to lack of availability to training on how to perform a high frequency treatment. This has allowed this essential skin treatment to somehow vanish from today’s salons, spa and clinic services.

I am pleased to say here at Aesthetic & Beauty this treatment both Direct & Indirect is still widely available to our clients as a treatment and to our Students whom would like to learn.

There are two types of high frequency application: direct and indirect current. 

Both methods involve the same Tesla current; however, the technique and outcome differ greatly between the two applications. It should be noted that both high frequency techniques are safe. While they are commonly used for the face, neck and scalp, high frequency can be used to treat all areas of the body including the back, chest, thighs, legs and feet.

Indirect High Frequency 

An overlooked massage technique, and I would like to introduce this timeless technique back on to your list of facial & massage choices. This technique is relaxing and healing, and it offers both hydrating and anti-aging benefits to dry, lackluster, premature aging clients.
In treating aging skin, high frequency current firms and tones by causing an immediate circulation rush to the skin in addition to subtle tissue warming. These functions cause a very safe and natural contraction of the underlying blood vessels and tiny muscle groups. The dilation of the underlying vessels pushes away toxins, while the cells enjoy a feast of increased nutrients and hydrating volume. This result is in an increase in blood circulation and cell renewal as well as increased production levels of Collagen and Elastin which soften and smooth away wrinkles, reduce pore size and improve overall skin texture.

Direct High Frequency
The application of Direct high frequency current to the skin also promotes a natural cleansing and antibacterial action that helps treat existing acne and prevents the onset of new acne. Clients experiencing cystic acne will benefit greatly from the deep penetrating germicidal action of high frequency. The skin is left feeling instantly energized, rosy, firm, refreshed and noticeably softer - even after just one treatment. The enriched oxygen molecules produced by high frequency machines are safe and have been proven to be effective in helping to heal and restore the skin's health.
