Acne is the most common skin disorder in the US, affecting an estimated 40-50 million Americans. 85% of people will suffer from acne at some point in their lives, and over 40% of teenagers have acne or acne scarring by their mid-teens.
Acne treatments like creams and lotions aren’t always enough to keep acne from flaring up. If it seems like you or your child has been through all the solutions for acne in the in your dermatologist’s repertoire with no success, it may be time to look into at-home skin care tools like high frequency facial devices.
High Frequency Skin Care Machines can Clear Acne
High frequency skin care machines produce gentle currents, usually at a frequency of 100,000-300,000 Hertz (cycles per second). This current warms skin tissue and promotes circulation, flushing away toxins and increasing cell renewal. This doesn’t just have an anti-aging effect. The detoxification process also infuses skin with purifying oxygen molecules, which can eliminate the bacteria that causes acne and exfoliate dead skin. It can also shrink pores for clearer, cleaner skin.
But don’t throw out your creams and lotions just yet. High frequency skin care machines can also increase their effectiveness by making skin more receptive to topical medication. Teenagers can use these devices safely, but since they’re often delicate, treatments should be performed with adult supervision.
What Else Can High Frequency Skin Treatment Do?
The benefits of high frequency treatment don’t end with acne prevention. High frequency devices can also soften wrinkles and fine lines and firm sagging skin by increasing collagen production and stimulating small muscles. It can also reduce puffiness and redness and smooth skin tone and texture. Many products come with interchangeable electrode applicators to treat different areas, like the face, scalp, back and even eye area.
Treatments are usually recommended only a few days a week, for as little as five minutes. Though treatment is quick and easy, persistence is the key to getting good results.
