Argon Gas Direct High Frequency Facials
Facials in Corinth, TX: High Frequency Argon Gas has a germicidal effect and is most efficient when treating acne-type lesions for oily skins with overall congestion.
High Frequency Argon Gas uses an alternating radio current called the “Tesla Current.” The glass electrodes fill with argon gas which is good for acneic skin conditions and to fight the effects of aging.
The Tesla Current is conducted to the gas where it ignites. The gas is inert in a vacuum, so it is quite safe and stable. Once the gas ignites, light energy is given off, which forms ozone around the glass electrode. When the oxygen, which is naturally present in the air around the electrode, is electrified, it forms ozone. The more oxygen that surrounds the electrode, the more ozone forms, thus creating a greater effect. Therefore, when the electrode is lifted away from the skin surface and more oxygen surrounds it, a more intense drying and healing action occurs. This method, which uses the argon gas electrode, is called “sparking.” We achieve a “spark gap” by applying layers of dry, cotton gauze over the skin, thus creating a narrow space between the skin and the electrode for ozone to form.
