Yes, it’s totally safe to use a high frequency wand every day, provided you’re using your device correctly. Russo recommends starting with clean, dry skin and then “grounding” the device before holding it to skin. “Take a finger and hold it at the base of the glass wand, turn the device on, then apply the tip of the wand to areas you want to treat while simultaneously remove your grounding finger,” says Russo.” Grounding your device helps to prevent a sudden feeling of electricity and gives you more control of the specific area you are treating.”
You may see some aestheticians use a high frequency wand over gauze, but this is optional, says Russo. The gauze
may help the tip of the wand more easily glide over skin, but it’s not necessary for device function or results.
As a rule, Russo says to go over breakouts for about 30 seconds each, gently tapping the device on each spot as you go and then finish with your normal skincare routine once you’re done.
