The Difference Between High Frequency and Radio Frequency As Skin Treatments

The Difference Between High Frequency and Radio Frequency As Skin Treatments


Most people choose to forgo skincare for a variety of reasons. These may include fear of discomfort and pain during procedures, the high costs of products and treatments, lack of time, and even feelings of shame and embarrassment arising from certain conditions. Right now is actually a great time to invest in skincare as the trend is shifting toward non-invasive treatments that are less expensive, painless, and can be carried out quickly in the privacy of the home.

Frequency-based skin treatment methods are starting to gain popularity due to their many benefits and the convenience of having at-home portable devices. A high frequency facial and radio frequency may sound quite the same but are really two totally different treatments. 

Which method suits your skin? Find out today. 

What Is A High Frequency Facial? What Are Its Benefits?


What Is A High Frequency Facial? What Are Its Benefits?


A high frequency facial is not as complex as it sounds. It works on a simple principle while providing numerous skin benefits. This lunchtime skin rejuvenation method can be completed in minutes with no downtime.

What is a high-frequency facial? 


High frequency is a skin treatment method that uses thermal current to increase the skin’s oxygen supply. Electrodes are used to deliver thermal energy and there are two types: argon gas and neon gas.

A typical  portable high frequency wand has a bubble-like tip which is called the electrode. Depending on the type of gas used, the electrode produces this gas to be able to release a weak electric current into the skin. Once in contact with the skin, the current generates oxygen which does wonders to the pores. 

Oxygen gives the skin cells a boost which contributes to the overall health of the skin. It works directly on the pores to eliminate bacteria, calm skin, promote collagen production, and more. The moving low-level current helps to rejuvenate the skin in a safe and gentle manner, with minimal to no downtime. 

There are two types of high-frequency electrodes: argon and neon gas. Here are their benefits:

Argon Gas (Violet)

Neon Gas (Orange)

  • Eliminates acne-causing bacteria
  • Calms and soothes inflammation and redness
  • Minimizes pore size
  • Increases oxygen to help fight bacteria
  • Reduces hyperpigmentation
  • Prevents acne from forming
  • Improves circulation
  • Reduces fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduces the appearance of cellulite
  • Decongest puffiness
  • Fades dark circles 
  • Improves circulation
  • Promotes cellular turnover
  • Aids in nutrient absorption
  • Help improve hair growth

The Project E Beauty D'arsonval High Frequency Wand lets you choose from six different electrodes for specific parts of the body. Use the mushroom electrode for broad areas, the hook electrode for targeted treatments on small areas, the spoon electrode for the under eye area, and the comb electrode for the scalp area. The Y-shaped electrode is for the neck and shoulder area and the straight electrode is for the face and delicate skin areas. 

What Does Radio Frequency Do To The Skin? Who Needs This?

Here’s another frequency-based skincare method with professional-quality anti-aging results. Radio frequency treatment, a non-invasive skin tightening procedure, is generally more powerful than high frequency treatment, and may require fewer sessions to achieve desired results. Its other benefit includes the reversal of sun damage. RF is also a popular way to contour and shape the face and body. 

What is a radio frequency treatment? 


Radio frequency treatments use low-level electromagnetic waves that turn into heat energy. This energy penetrates deep into the skin’s layers to enhance collagen production and other anti-aging effects.

Who can benefit from a radio frequency treatment? Individuals who may have one or more of the following:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sagging, loose skin
  • Uneven skin texture and color
  • Acne scars, dark spots 
  • Stretch marks 

The all-in-one Needle-Free Mesotherapy Device utilizes UV-free LED bulbs to transmit natural light waves into the layers of the skin. To improve your complexion, this light energy activates the photoreceptors in skin cells to trigger natural processes - such as collagen production. 

This powerful mesotherapy device not only targets your skin concerns but also helps you achieve a toned and firm appearance with its EMS technology. Microcurrents provide a relaxing massage while improving circulation for a glowing complexion. The radio frequency function further amplifies collagen production for a youthful and radiant look. Say hello to firmer, smoother, and younger-looking skin!

Whether you choose high-frequency or radio frequency treatments, you'll notice significant improvements in your skin's appearance. It's important to keep in mind that frequency-based treatments are not a quick fix, but rather a process that requires a consistent regimen of multiple sessions.

For best results, it's recommended to follow a strict treatment schedule over several weeks or months. With patience and commitment, you can achieve the skin of your dreams.

Thank you for reaching out to us.

High-frequency treatments can indeed stimulate hair follicles and promote hair growth. These treatments work by using a mild electrical current to enhance blood circulation to the scalp, improving the delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the hair follicles. This increased blood flow can potentially encourage hair growth.

It’s important to note that individual needs may vary, so it’s always a good idea to consult with a professional or hair care specialist to determine the optimal frequency of high frequency treatments based on your specific hair and scalp condition.

If you have any further questions or need additional assistance, feel free to ask.
