Nikola Tesla's "The Violet Ray" is now known as the "High Frequency" machine. In the past, the medical profession treated infections and enhanced the healing of wounds with this device. Decades later, pharmaceutical drugs took over its use. The aesthetics industry has taken advantage of the benefits of this "hospital-acquired machine.

Uses in aesthetics

"High frequency" is a safe and non-invasive holistic treatment for many skincare concerns such as acne, enlarged pores, wrinkles, and puffy or dark eyes, and it minimizes red, inflamed skin, skin toning, and hair loss.

How it works

The Neon and Argon inert gas-filled electrode utilizes the Oxygen in the air around it to produce Ozone (O3), a form of Oxygen used for sterilization today. You may have heard of the "Ozone" layer surrounding the earth. It is currently protecting us from the harsh sunlight.

Oxygen has two faces. One side is vital because it is responsible for aerobic respiration – the most efficient engine of energy metabolism. The other side is very destructive. Its reduction produces reactive oxygen species such as the superoxide anion, peroxide, and hydroxyl radical. Hydrogen Peroxide (H2O2) is a strong disinfectant. The oxygen-rich air we breathe also enhances the aging of foods, which requires a vacuum pack for longevity. Antioxidants found in foods and supplements protect our cells from attacks by Oxygen and free radicles. I've taken the time to explain this to you so you understand how each of the two "High Frequency" electrodes can offer unique gifts. It is mainly because of Oxygen's role.

The Argon gas (violet light) is helpful for acne and oily skin and cysts. The Neon gas-filled electrode (red/orange light) benefits skin rejuvenation. However, using either of the wands for both concerns is also done. Below, I will be sharing my experiences outside of my aesthetics business. I want to enhance your ability to utilize this device for more than cosmetic reasons.

My "high frequency" first-aid experiences


My husband cut the inside of his mouth with a mango seed. This area is challenging to heal since it is moist. I could only think to insert the "High Frequency Zit Zapper “electrode in his mouth. I held it in the area of concern for a few minutes. He notified me when he felt better. The moisture in the mouth did not prevent cauterization of the required location in his mouth. It healed well. We didn't have to go to the hospital to get stitches.

Something bit the right side of my dog's neck in our front yard. His neck wouldn't stop bleeding. My dog was quite irritated because of the pain. He fought with me when I tried to clean and sanitize it. I decided to try the "High Frequency" on him. I used the mushroom tip-shaped glass electrode. He allowed me to place it on his injury. I continued using the device for a while. When I removed the electrode, the bleeding had stopped. He was content and we avoided a veterinary appointment. It sterilized the area and healed the wound at the same time. It healed well.


I was trimming the facial hair on my elderly vision-impaired dog. My dog bit my finger. Days later, it became infected. I was afraid to go to the doctor, not wanting to alert Animal Control or the Health Unit, so I used the "High Frequency" machine on it quite a bit. It prevented it from getting bigger and spreading but did not eliminate it. Eventually, I did go to the doctor. The doctor wondered why the infection didn't become more extensive and asked me if I did anything to it. I explained what I had done, and he ultimately gave me an antibiotic. The "High Frequency" machine eliminates toxins and acne-causing bacteria and encourages lymphatic drainage.

Viral infection

Viral infections such as warts or cold sores should be treated with the "High Frequency" daily. The generated ozone kills the virus and helps rebuild the skin faster. Alternate methods, such as Nitrous Oxide or 20% Salicylate acid, kill the viruses by destroying their food supply and damaging the skin around it.


Burns heal quicker as well with the "High Frequency" machine. Research has also shown that it can help improve infected fingernails and toenails along with medication.

The "High frequency" machine does so much more than this. It's my go-to for facials. Ensure to read instructions, watch videos and learn how to use it properly. The reasons not to use it are listed below.

High-frequency shouldn't be used for people with a pacemaker, heart disease, or during pregnancy.

Avoid inflamed or sensitive skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema, or psoriasis.

Avoid using high frequency with AHA Glycolic acid products, broken capillaries, or spider veins. Do not wear jewelry when using it as well.
