Main types of facial device
RF (Radio Frequency) Facial devices deliver heat to the dermis layer of the skin using RF high-frequency electromagnetic waves. By damaging cells, this type of facial device stimulates collagen regeneration, which can be expected to lift up the skin.
Ultrasonic A facial care device that uses ultrasonic waves (high-frequency sound waves that cannot be heard by humans) to cause ultra-high-speed vibrations. It is expected to have a peeling (water peeling) effect that lifts up dirt and dead skin cells in pores by deriving fine bubbles, and to activate cells by delivering vibrations deep into the skin.
Massager A face massager tool facial device. By massaging the lymph glands, it is expected to improve sagging and swelling of the face line.
Ion induction A facial ionizer that applies weak electricity to the ionized skin and uses the repulsive effect of "negative" charged agents on each other to penetrate deep into the skin. In many cases, a special lotion, serum, or sheet mask is required for ion induction.
There are also facial machines that have an "ion delivery" function, which absorbs waste matter in the skin by passing a "positive" charge of electricity, which also requires special lotion and cotton.
EMS (Electric Muscle Stimulation) EMS is a facial device that stimulates facial muscles by using low-frequency electricity. By promoting blood circulation and strengthening muscles, it is expected to lift up the face and improve skin elasticity.
Steam Facial device that can produce steam fine hot and cold steam. In addition to lifting dirt from pores and making it easier to remove, the hot and cold steam is expected to reduce swelling and increase the penetration of lotion and beauty essence.
