Re: Violet Ray
Yes, they do work by adding energy/oxygen to the body and the skin. I have one and it really boosts my energy level and improves my skin tone. Here's a nice deal on one:
Also you can type in high frequency machine on ebay. These are violet rays but they call them high freq machines for some reason.
Uses: To treat acne, use after extractions, after facial treatments, kills bacteria on problem skin.
System - The High Frequency Current is a characterized by a high rate of oscillation. Of chief interest to the estheticians is the Tesla current, commonly called the violet ray, used for facial treatments. The primary action of this current is thermal, or heat-producing. Because of its rapid oscillation, there are no muscular contractions. The physiological effects are either stimulating or soothing, depending on the method of application.
The electrodes for the high frequency are made of glass and their shapes will vary. All treatments given with high-frequency should be started with a mild current, and gradually increased to the required strength. The length of the treatment depends upon the condition to be treated. For a general facial treatment, approximately three to five minutes should be allowed.
Benefits - Stimulates circulation of the blood, Increases glandular activity, aids in elimination and absorption, increase metabolism, germicidal action, generates heat inside the tissue and aids in deeper penetration of product into the skin.
Benefits of High Frequency:
Stimulates circulation of blood
Increases Glandular activity.
Aids in elimination and absorption
Germicidal action occurs during use (Direct Method Only)
Generates Heat inside skin tissues.
Aids in the deeper penetration of product into the skin
