Multifunction machines can include the following functions:
High-frequency. Using a Tesla pulse current, producing a 60,000 to 200,000 hertz frequency, this machine does not produce chemical changes. Rather it can supply heat that has an antiseptic affect for the skin. This machine stimulates circulation, oxygenates the skin and increases cell metabolism. It is an excellent germicidal machine, which is especially important when treating acne.
Galvanic. The two primary features of the galvanic current are to facilitate deep-pore cleansing and to penetrate product into the skin. The use of positive or negative currents, with the client holding the opposite probe at the same time, facilitates iontophoresis or anaphoresis.
