What is a high frequency treatment?
High frequency is a type of current that is used on acneic skin to speed the healing of active breakouts and on very oily skin to dry out the skin. It has a germicidal and healing effect on skin. Unlike galvanic, high frequency uses a different type of current – an alternating current.
How Does High Frequency Work?
The high frequency machine connects to a glass probe (by a wire).
That glass probe is filled with a gas, such as argon or neon. The gas makes the probe glow a certain color when it’s turned on (e.g. violet, orange, red).
Probes come in different shapes to accommodate different areas of the face. The most common one is called the mushroom probe.It is round and flat which cover a bigger area.
An esthetician places gauze over skin and then runs the probe over the gauze for a few minutes. There may be a little sparking.
The probe produces ozone gas that kills bacteria inside a pimple. The bacteria that causes acne (P. acnes) cannot survive in the presence of oxygen. So ozone (which is a form of oxygen, denoted as O3) kills the bacteria.
The heat emitted from the probe also has a healing and drying effect.
**This treatment is recommended once a week for active acne skin. There are no age limit for this treatment. It's for all ages.

Can I still wear mascara?
Absolutely! mascara will give you a more dramatic effect.
Are some lashes resistant to the lift?
On a very rare occasion. Clients who have a strong cowlick or slanted growth pattern are very difficult and sometimes not possible to sustain the curl. We won't know until you try this treatment and see how your lashes hold the curl.
What is the application process?
The process is very relaxing. After you lie down on the table, your licensed specialist will cover your lower lashes with a soothing gel pad to protect your lower lashes during the application. You then relax with your eyes closed. Many clients fall asleep during the procedure. Based on the length and density of your lashes, your licensed MedCouture specialist will choose the appropriate silicone pad size to "lift" your lashes and apply water soluble glue to hold your lashes. The specialist will then brush back the lashes so they attach to the silicone pad and apply the specialized eyelash perming solution. Depending on the size and shape of your lashes the permanent relaxing solution will sit on lashes for 12 -15 minutes. The perming solution is then removed with q-tips and a neutralizing solution is applied for 10-12 minutes. A 5 minute lash conditioning treatment is then applied. The entire process takes about 75 mins.
Can Lash Couture Lash Lift be used to compliment other treatments?
Yes! MedCouture Lash Lift is enhanced when you use our RevitaLash MD growth serum product. While your lashes grow longer, our process controls straight or overly curly lashes by giving them a uniform lifted look. A complimentary eyelash tinting can also be applied during the treatment to enhance the look of your MedCouture Lash Lift. If you have blonde or light brown lashes you may want to get your eyelash tinted along with your Lash Lift. Lash tints are special dyes applied to your lashes to give them a darker color.
Is the procedure safe?
Yes. Lashes are lifted onto our specially shaped lifting silicone pads before products are applied so no products will be touching your skin. Lash Lift should only be performed by a Licensed lash specialists.
