Traditionally an Argon electrode is selected by an esthetician in order to treat acne-prone skin. An extremely small amount of ultraviolet light is emitted when the violet electrode comes into contact with the skin. Such brief and low-level UV exposure are considered safe and non-damaging while providing thorough anti-bacterial and healing benefits.
Orange electrodes (Neon) are generally sought after for the treatment of aging skin because they direct more warmth to the treatment area, therefore, promoting blood circulation, encouraging cellular turnover rate, and improving product penetration. Liquefied neon is commercially used as a cryogenic refrigerant (‘natural preservative’). Therefore the application of such gas into the pores has shown an ability to preserve youth’ or reduce signs of aging by stimulating fibroblasts and collagen production.
