Acne Treatment System

hey guys. mi ann here, beauty writer here at refinery29and today i’m going to dermalogica soho which is a spa in new york to get a high frequencytreatment. it’s going to help with inflammation. it’s going to literally zap my zits andhelp kill bacteria. it costs about 50 dollars for every twentyminutes of getting the actual service. i am a little bit nervous just because itis 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 goingon today.

it was founded in the 1800’s by nikola teslawhose a well known scientist. he used it to help more with like infectionscause 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 skininfections. there’s two different types of gas in theelectrode. so there’s glass electrodes. the gas is vacuum sealed into the electrodeso, 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 apurple or a violet hue. neon is going to be more orange. as far as our treatment goes, it’s fullycustomized so we’ll focus on cleaning up the breakouts, the redness um, i’ll startwith the double cleanse routine. i’ll take a closer look at your skin andthen we’ll get started. hormonal acne, as a teenager, does start inthe 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 frequencyportion of the treatment okay? i’ll treat the whole face of course buti’ll just focus like you’re saying down on the jawline. here at dermalogica we place gauze over theskin before we apply the current. it just allows you to get more oxygen intothe skin because that’s what’s jumping from the high of frequency itself into theskin. 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 morebeneficial.

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 thebreakouts that you were worried about. they already look a little bit better actuallynot as inflamed. that’s the goal. yeah.

i’ll tone your skin now, put on some moisturizerand spf and then you’ll be good to go. that was so cool. it definitely didn’t hurt at all which iwas kind of surprised by because i expected it to have a little bit more zapping or tinglingsensations. my acne has really subsided. now it’s day three since i’ve had thefacial 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.
