Hey guys. Mi Ann here, beauty writer here at my blog and today I’m going to Dermalogica Soho which is a spa in New York to get a high frequency treatment. It’s going to help with inflammation. It’s going to literally zap my zits and help kill bacteria. It costs about 50 dollars for every twenty minutes of getting the actual service. I am a little bit nervous just because it is literal electricity going over my skin but, I’ve heard it’s pretty painless so, I’m actually very excited to see if it helps with any of the acnes that I’ve got going on today. It was founded in the 1800’s by Nikola Tesla whose a well known scientist. He used it to help more with like infections cause that was before we had antibiotics. A French biophysicist realized in 1892 actually, um, that it had an antibacterial effect on the skin um, and would help um with like skin infections. There’s two different types of gas in the electrode. So there’s glass electrodes. The gas is vacuum sealed into the electrode so, we put the electrode in the actual current and we turn it on. The gas ignites. There’s either neon gas or argon gas. Argon gas is going to glow more of like a purple or a violet hue.

Neon is going to be more orange. As far as our treatment goes, it’s fully customized so we’ll focus on cleaning up the breakouts, the redness um, I’ll start with the double cleanse routine. I’ll take a closer look at your skin and then we’ll get started. Hormonal acne, as a teenager, does start in the forehead and then it literally will slowly progress down so, That’s exactly what happened. Adult acne is typically along the jawline. So, we’re going to start the high frequency portion of the treatment okay? I’ll treat the whole face of course but I’ll just focus like you’re saying down on the jawline. Here at Dermalogica we place gauze over the skin before we apply the current. It just allows you to get more oxygen into the skin because that’s what’s jumping from the high of frequency itself into the skin. Oxygen is what’s killing the bacteria. With the gauze, you get even more oxygen. We call it like a spark gap so, it’s more beneficial. It’s also easier to glide across the skin. Alright, how’s your skin feeling? It feels good. I feel so relaxed. I think I fell asleep for a good minute there. No worries and you’ll definitely see the breakouts that you were worried about.
They already look a little bit better actually not as inflamed. That’s the goal. Yeah. I’ll tone your skin now, put on some moisturizer and SPF and then you’ll be good to go. That was so cool. It definitely didn’t hurt at all which I was kind of surprised by because I expected it to have a little bit more zapping or tingling sensations. My acne has really subsided. Now it’s day three since I’ve had the facial and it doesn’t hurt anymore. it’s not as red and inflamed. I’m actually really happy with the results. I would definitely go back again.
